    Maybe a better comparison to the Slim Fit is maybe the N&F Slim Guy with more of a tapered leg. Hearing about how slim the thighs are in the RRL slim fits, I bought a pair of 32x32s in the faded grey wash. The thighs aren't as slim as I like measuring about 12". If anyone wants them PM me. Otherwise I will probably keep them.

    A size 31 would have fit me better. My true waist size (measured at the hips where my jeans sit) is 33. I wear a 31 in N&F for reference.

    I picked up the slim boots because they were like 35 at outlet. I'd probably be a 31 in the raw versions but haven't tried them on so I don't know for sure. the 32s are loose on me and measure like 17 or something IIRC.

    seriously, if you look at the measurements on a slim fit, they aren't that slim. the rise is over 10", the thighs on a size 32 are 12", and the hem is what, 7.75? 7.5 at the slimmest? that's just not that slim of a jean. they' wear less slim than APCs, especially considering front/back rise.

    Not sure what Teger's smoking because the slims are... slim. Not skinny, but slim. Not sure what the front rise has to do with a cut's slimness, but an 8" hem is generally considered to be a slim straight. Less than that and I'm not sure how you couldn't call it slim.

    The problem in the past (and correct me if it's still the same today as I haven't tried on a pair in a few seasons) was that the waist was larger in proportion to the thighs. If you sized down too much for the waist, then the fit would be tight through the thighs. You had to learn to live with a looser waist so that the rest of the jeans would fit. I wear my pairs with a bit of an anti fit and I'm happy.

    I'm looking for a pair of rinsed or raw low straights with a pre-stretch actual waist size of somewhere between 33 and 34" (tagged 31??) and an inseam of around 32. If anyone has some they're looking to sell/trade or knows where I can find these for a reasonable price, I'd be grateful if you could let me know. I made a WTB classified but didn't get any responses so thought I'd try here.

    Thanks a lot.

    It says, "New without tags: A brand-new, unused, and unworn item (including handmade items) that is not in original packaging .... " He can always message the seller.

    One rinses I picked up from Deez came in today. They fit pretty nicely, and I hope they don't stretch too much. Seeing as they aren't super tight, I think I'll be OK in terms of stretching. Wonder how badly these will bleed relative to raws?
