Is the general consensus to size one down from true waist size? I'm a size 28 in APC NS, but the Self-Edge site is saying that their size 28 is indeed a size 30, so I'm thinking of sizing 2 down to 28 from sz 30?

Thanks.

I sized down one to a 30, but now thinking about it I could have easily fit into a 29..

so I'd say sizing down two is fine..

Yes, Its true to waist size. I bought a size 31, My true size is 33 and fits me perfectly at the waist.

Copped a pair today at Self Edge and getting them hemmed. I'll have fit pictures when I pick them up this Thursday. Woo!

Nice, How do they fit? Are they baggy?

I want to get mine tapered but I'm kinda iffy about it.

Well I got a sz 28 and 28's are never baggy haha. They fit awesome though! My first pair of jeans were a pair of RRL's that I just retired. The RRL cut was very slim with a big taper, and were a little TOO slim for my tastes. To me the Dry Bones fit like a slim straight fit. I don't know how you like to wear your jeans, but if you want to get these tapered, why not return them for a different pair of jeans?

I like straight fit. Cant return them, I already got them hemmed and I like the back pocket design.

These are about an inch or so of more leg room then what I'm use to, I guess I have to beef up my legs. Haha

Here are my Red-D's. Bought in March or so I think.

Worn pretty much daily. Pretty hard, I'd say these fade slowish. Size 31x39 lol.

Can anyone, who owns a pair of Red-D's, measure where the waist band of these jeans sits. I need to know how low they sit below the naval.

How much have these stretched in the waist ?

^^ Doesn't that depend...? You could compare the front and back rise on your own jeans to get the idea.

Wearing a tagged 30,natural waist at about 32.5, the jeans appear to be exactly 5 inches from waist to naval when being worn at a natural height.

I'm 6'0 165lbs if that helps at all.

I didn't soak my RRL's (they're sanforized) so I didn't soak these either since these are sanforized as well. I'll probably do some warm soaks ever so often to stiffen the denim up when it gets too soft.

I know this isn't the best fit picture for the jeans and that I didn't include a picture of the back. I'll go out and take some more tomorrow. I just got a tripod today though and decided to try it out. These are exactly how I wanted these to fit. Slim cut but not too slim, with a more slim/straight than a slim/taper.
