    Is sizing up 2" on Skull 5010xx One Wash Jeans too much? I want a slim-straight fit for my denim and not really too tight. I have seen skulls that fit like Nudie Thin Finns and Slim Kims which is not the look I'm looking for. Looking for someone looser but I'm not sure if sizing up 2 will be the solution or if it will be a bad choice. Thanks.

    For reference, I have 28" Nudie Slim Jims that fit fine but are a little too tight. I would like something looser. I'm also 5'6" and 128 lbs.

    From the sounds of it you need a size 29 in the 5010.
    Also, i highly recommend you NOT buy the one-wash Skull models.. they destroy the denim with the industrial wash/dry that they put the jean through, get them in the raw state, which is smart considering the denim doesn't shrink much anyway once washed.
    Here's a size chart to help you out:

    Do you think you will restock the Lindas at some point?

    I'm interested in these because they're a female cut with a button fly, although I'm not sure if the fit what I'm really after -- for reference I own a pair of Slim Jims in 29 that I find too tight; what size would you recommend in the Lindas (alternately, I'm liking the Sugar Cane Women's Rodeo Bootcut which you only have left in 30) ?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you should look into the Flat Head Balder Slim Jeans, compare the measurements to women's jeans you already own to determine your size:

    The Skull 5010 6x6 Jean is Back!

    After a long hiatus one of our most popular jeans in the store is back... The Skull 5010 6x6 slim cut jean is finally back in stock at Self Edge.

    The Skull 5010 6x6 is known for it's ultra stiff dark indigo denim with a straight slim fit, and is now for the first time available up to size 36. Over the last six months especially we've seen some particularly amazing looking broken in pairs of this jean, and we think because of this the popularity of this model is about to skyrocket again..

    Along with the 5010 6x6 Indigo Jean we also received a full restock of the 5010 Black Selvedge Jean, the Skull Tan Medallion Wallet, and both Skull T-Shirts. All four of these items are now available in our online store. Check the store for specs, measurements, and more..
