Allrighty..most threads just melt down to the sizing issue...


Please post your sizing experience right here...


Start

Make sure you know how to measure your own waist !

Measure around the natural waistline where you plan to wear the top of your trousers or breeches.

Be sure to give an exact measurement, being careful not to add any additional length to the measurement. Do not use clothing label sizes for any measurements as they will almost assuredly be incorrect.

For KMW for sure go down 1. I have had my 1980's for over 1 year and I purchased my waist size 32 which fit great but was a little snug. But now they have stretched out at least 2 sizes and I wish I would have sized down even more.

Hmm, most of my jeans (reglardless of tagged size, you know how that varies) measures about 36-37" in the waist now but I'm wearing 33 in New Standards and those have stretched to very loose and comfortable around the waist. 36" in KMW will still be too big?

shit for a 6ft 173lbs d00d:

APC New Standard -- 32... pretty loose, soaked in hot water shrunk a bit but has more of a relaxed fit. you may want to size down, I'm not disappointed with the fit though.

Nom de Guerre (grey selvage) -- 34... was told size 32 would be 32 in waist, didn't want to get pwn3d so I ordered a 34.... was pretty big, soaked, it's suppose to be a slim fitting jean but fits more relaxed since I sized up.

Dior 21cm -- 32... don't know what to say really, I love the way this one fits on me.

5EP LDB -- 32... not really a boot cut (more of a straight fit), the nudie rr and the pbj 007 are wider at the bottom.

Nudie AJ -- 31... fucked up the sizing, was pretty tight at first but stretched out. I don't think this is suppose to be a slim fitting jean, but it fits like it since I sized down.

Nudie RR -- 32... size down for this one. everything is big... i look like a G.

Nudie SS -- 32... second fav fit next to dior. low rise, straight, not tight, and leg opening is wide enough to wear boots.

Studio d'Artisan 103 - 32... a lot of d00ds here said this shit was tight and to size up. i thought fuck it... i always order 32, so I did. I was able to button this shit and it fits just about right... I have enough room in the waist to slip my hand through and scratch my balls if I need to, thigh is not tight, slightly tappered I suppose.

PBJ 007 -- 32... low rise, a little thight on the thigh, a little wide at the leg opening. Stiff as fuck...I'm breaking this bitch in so I can't comment much.
