    So upset with UB.
    I thought for sure they would work.

    I sized down and bought the skinnys in 29. They were super tight but I could button them. Wore them nonstop for a week and they didn't stretch at all. My crotch was in pain since day one....no idea how anyone wears these sizing down.

    Returned and got them in 30...so big I was swimming in them. The leg and leg opening was over an inch bigger...just sizing up 1. I don't get it.

    Jealous of you guys who can pull these off.

    I'm in search of a pair of raw black denim in a tapered cut. Would you recommend the UB201 raw black jeans?

    Hey guys , new here and ready to get into my first SELVEDGE denim. I found a pair UB101s in size 32. As per the seller they are from 2010 before the new batch was released , I asked about sizing, his response was that they run tight and I should size one up..currently I own several pairs of 511 rigid in size 32x34 and like the feel and tightens around my thighs. What do you guys recommend

    the old sizing was true to size so a size 32 will have a 32 inch waist where the new sizing a size 32 would have around a 33 inch waist. not sure how much the thigh area is affected though.

    Mine have taken 2-3 weeks to loosen up with every day wear.

    I ended up returning them. Might try again at some point but I'd rather just buy jeans that fit.

    How should I store these jeans? I read you should never fold them but hang them up.

    Hi all,

    I just bought the UB321 from Blue Owl in size 32. The thighs feel pretty tight, but in the mirror, they look ok. The rest of the fit is fine- they button up and I have plenty of room for "the boys". Do the 21oz jeans stretch much, or should I try the 33? Thanks.

    Need a pair of chinos. If I'm a 31 for the skinny fit, should I take a 30 or a 31 for tapered fit?

    Anyone know if the Unbranded chinos stretch? I'm a 31 waist and I purchased a size 30 UB207 since the site measuremeants show to size down 1. When the chinos came it was too tight and it measured as a 28 [​IMG]
