    if you are planning to cuff them, iron your cuff to flatten out a bit and they stay on the side nicely

    Not to be a stickler, but it's technically not normal behavior for all raw denim, it just depends on which direction the twill is going. I own a pair of Samurai 710's that are right-hand twill and don't twist at all (not the case with all RHT denim) while my left-hand twill Flat Head 3008's twist like crazy. Denim that uses a broken twill won't twist at all (in fact broken twill was invented for the very reason of stopping leg twist).

    Just chalk it up to a charming characteristic of the denim and move on with your life.

    Uh, I have several pairs of RHT that twist. In "theory" it shouldn't, but in the practice of a hell of a lot of people on here, it does. And vice-versa, I have LHT that doesn't.

    I think it's safe to refer to a phenomenon as "normal" when the consensus is that it happens to everybody. I've seen twists in all directions even if it should pull to one way or the other depending on hand.

    Correct about the broken twill being invented to eliminate leg twist. I am also under the impression new sanforized denim won't twist much, and if it twists it's after long time wear or after a soak/wash, but not for brand new rigid denim.


    I need some sizing advice related to Polo if anyone knows I would really appreciate it.

    I want to buy a Polo wool vest as a gift for a buddy of mine. 2 sizes to choose from, a 42R and 44R. He typically wears Medium for all his Polo stuff. Which size would best suit him?

    42 or even 40. I wear all RL stuff in Medium but some exceptions in outerwear. I wear 40R in Polo cuts and 42R in Garrison and Bradford model(with minor alteration) 6' 190lbs, well built.

    I didn't buy it unfortunately - just didn't get around to it. Should have though as it seemed like a good deal.
