    cross post from RP thread:
    I am a usual size 32 and 33 depending on the pant. I ordered a size 33, I like the waist on jeans to measure 17" across so I can sag a little bit. These measure exactly 17" across, so like 1" above tagged size

    http://www.shopacrimony.com/designers/wings-horns/wings-horns-5-pocket-skinny-jean
    they have all the measurements, although I wouldn't trust them too much. The size 33 is off, even if they meant to put 17.5 it would still be off.

    here are the measurements I received from Roden Gray for anyone that wants them-
    Size 32
    Waist: 16.5"
    Thigh at crotch: 12"
    Knee: 7.5"
    Hem: 7"
    Inseam: 35"

    Size 33
    Waist: 17"
    Thigh at crotch: 12.25"
    Knee: 7.5"
    Hem: 7"
    Inseam: 35"

    Thank you sir! Now a question on the denim itself. The blacks are a wash and not raw? I can imagine that its not super stiff..

    Cool, I am thinking about getting the blazer myself. It's its as thick as the cargo joggers then it can easily double as a winter jacket for the better part of the season. I'm going to keep an eye out for that cardigan as well.

    It's not stiff like raws but it's not very soft either :dozingoff:

    Kinda like thin raw denim, not stiff but still rough

    When do you think the sneakers will drop on American sites? Also, for anyone who bought a size 45, let me know if you think it will fit a true 11.5(US). Thanks in advance.

    And of course a couple fit pics. Kinda remind me of the 19cm cut. I am really digging the wash on these jeans.

    Do some research about denim manufacturing, and then talk about the warrants of various jeans. And I'm not just talking about fabric and selvedge vs. non selvedge etc. Good washes are very expensive to create, denim from companies like W+H, R13, Dior etc. are undergoing distressing processes at very high end wash houses where people work on one pair of jeans for days.

    Am I saying that J. Crew products are bad? Absolutely not. I'm just saying that there's a reason that J. Crew jeans are $100 (still overpriced) and Wings are close to $300. Same goes for tees, hoodies, cardigans etc.

    It's not just about looks people - it's about fabrics, where the stuff is made (ex. because of the exchange rate, making things in Japan costs a shitload right now, which is why Robert Geller stuff is expensive, etc.)

    Just because you read StyFo and A Continuous Lean doesn't mean that you know everything there is to know about the very complex world of clothing manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing.

    Can anyone measure the P2P in this season's Tiger Fleece Hoodie in a medium?

    Haven says 18", which is kind of small........

    Why not get it from Canadian sites? Roden Gray and 4Horsemen wont charge for its shipping.

    Just got my medium, fits a bit snug when zipped up but not bad. I have a ~20 inch chest.
    In case anyone's curious, the inseam on the sweatpants are also longer than haven's measurements. They say ~30 in for a medium, but mine are closer to 32-33.

    So I got my pair of Black Hi Tops...and I must say these joints are impressive. Very sturdy and solid feeling. Worth the wait and price imo..
