sounds good, probably just variability between styles and sizes, some run bigger and some run smaller. take fit pics so we can help more

the linen blend's run small - i got them in the skinny guy and had to size up. i'd recommend trying some of the skinny guy's with stretch like indigo power stretch, black power stretch or grey stretch.

Ok, I tried on the weird guys and some apc petit standards and they were both waaaay too roomy in the back waist when the thighs and hips were tight. very sad because there were those fade to red weird guys for $120.

i guess my problem with waists on jeans in general isn't the total size but how curvy they're cut in the back/the shape. the waist can be super tight around the front and sides but still gape in the back. :(

you're a female I assume? Those are men's cuts, so that's probably the problem. Have you tried any womens cuts? Skull Lindas, 3sixteen 1099bsp?

@Muscat_gummy - I'd suggest you look for jeans with stretch indigo in them, it'll form around your body shape a lot better than the non-stretch raws.

Yep i lift weights.
men's denim also seems to have options in the cheaper price range, and I didn't want to drop more than $150 on a pair of jeans if they're only going to fit so-so. i also can't really find any to try on. already got the folks at the local barney's to agree to give me a call if they get in any women's raw jeans, but nothing at the moment

muscat_gummy you could try asking about variation in cut. I have a similar man-problem with my natural physique. Never bought anything from Kiya but Gordon is pretty damn cool about checking the thigh variation of his inventory for me, and I'm sure Kiya would be just as willing to help with it.

Nice. More women need to know that lifting weights dont instantly make you into a monster.

^ both stores you suggested are out of her price range

A bit of a cross post here from the home made thread... I hope people don't mind.

I made these for my wife using a stretch pattern I traced off of a pair of her favorite jeans.

I just bought my girlfriend a pair of SugarCane 1947s. They are a size 29 with an unhemmed inseam. They are her first pair of raw denim, and she loves them. She tried on a pair of Nudies as well, but the SC just looked the best.

Close up shot of the womens Viper 002 brown denim. 100% cotton non-stretch raw non-selvedge. They still have all the Railcar details such as chain stitch bottom hem, continuous tucked waistband chain stitching, "r" fly stitching, washer riveting, raw leather burn brand patch, ect.... These pictures seems to look true to color. Great unique color denim. We made our last run on them so we will not be producing these any more. Available on our site for only 159USD.

Raw jeans for women are great - but try to find them living on the Uzk??

English women are married to disgusting jeggongs and stretch one wash.

This year I had one bad experience but I spent most of 2010 at the Post Office paying hundreds of pounds to return online purchases that didn't fit!!!

Now I go custom - then I get to choose what I want to wear.

You guys in the US or Sweden don't know how lucky you are.

And weight wise - anything over about 10oz would be used for men's jeans.

The top end of British mens clothing is the best in the world - high street fashion sucks!

I keep my wardrobe just to what fits and what I like whereas most English girls have a jumble sale going on in their closets!!!But it's hard to say goodbye to old friends - my worn clothes are Very worn when pensioned off!!

I vote raw for women in England!!!

Naked & Famous has a new women's line which is relaunching for FW12. You may like the Straight Stretch Selvedge.

Resurrecting this thread. I've gone through about half of it, then my attention span ran out. Looking to get my first pair of raw. Looking to spend 200ish. Under 200 even better. Skinny slim fit. Good fade. 100% cotton or blend, doesn't matter. Not picky on selvedge or not. 5'3 105 or so. Not much in the way of curves. Specs for most my jeans are ~28 measured waist but that's w a lower rise.

Need some recs. So far what stands out are pbjs, RFG vipers 001 and APC PS. Looks like I may be able to try on the APCs. I'm not opposed to a slouchier fit, digging the way the vipers look but I also like skinny skinnies. I hate not being able to try on :/

^Agreed. I got to page 4, then ADD kicked in so jumped to the last.

We're thinking of producing a raw womens fit. i'd be keen to hear any feedback positive and negative on what's currently available, and which fit characteristics are desirable...

now back to page 5...
