That's an outrageous suggestion MJ i'd give my right arm for a pair of those gold Aladin slips, imagine how great lazy Sundays would be...

You will most definitely love a pair of traditional Rajasthani shoe...

I will second a curiosity about this. I am in the market for a new pair of just normal indigo/white denim in the most classic sense - a 40s/50s ish sort of cut (I tend to just have one pair at a time) and am in no rush, but it's really the thing that would likely impact my choice between SC, Warehouse, TCB, etc etc. I can't try any from where I'm at.

Hello in the USA,  looking for recommendations for a black high rise straight or slim straight. NOT a relax taper.  Need a FR of at least 12” for a 35.5-36. 
First thought is the LF NYC Black Maria greaser but they are  out of stock and the thighs on my indigo pair are pretty wide.

The new SC for self edge pair look interesting but they are definitely pricy....

thanks

TCB also makes a black 50's that look quite nice but the black 1947's might be my second choice. $240 seems reasonable for sold in the us novelty cane's to me.

SC-47's are by no means 'slim straight' maybe look into the SC41470 instead, you can score them on Yahoo for not much more than 60 bucks,

Ive got no idea re- FR so check that out first.

^ I’d call the SC ‘47 a pretty classic slim–straight…

In any case, though, they asked about straight or slim–straight, and the SC ‘47 for sure fits somewhere in there

Not in dispute, dude called the black SC-47's 'pricey' my point was the slim-straight black Type III being a cheaper option via Yahoo...

Ah, very fair point—my misunderstanding—yeah, if those aren’t too slim they’re a great cheaper option

 Same fabric same details and everything

Do you guys line up the front and rear of the waist band when measuring the waist on jeans? I've seen retailer measuring guides that do and some that don't. Never quite understood if there was a reason for lining up vs. not.

I do @discwork. Always figured it’s more accurate as it eliminates slack, which might balls up the measurement.

Some retailers let the waist sag (SE for instance) some JP retailers measure around the circumference but Blue in Green line up the waist and pull it straight, i like many others here have always been an advocate of the BiG method so yes, if someone asks me to measure a pair of jeans i would use BiG method (and say so) even though BiG in recent years are not the denim-force which they once was back in 2008/10 their method of measuring has always stuck with me.

I bet nowadays if you say 'ive measured them BiG method' the new kids on the block wouldn't know what you was talking about...:blush:

Thanks for the replies all. I had the slimmer SC and was too tight in the thighs.  I would love the TCB but the Charts I see do. It have a 12 rise....

I found a full count version which look promising and maybe indigioffera....if not there is always the SE XSC 47 version...

Were you looking at the ‘50s, or the slim ‘50s? The standard [black] TCB ‘50s should have more than a 12” front rise for a size 36

The regulars...all the charts I saw were in cm. Maybe I’m doing something wrong in my conversion....any help or link to an chart in inches most welcome here

Don't bother converting the measurements! just get a tape measure, the vast majority have metric and imperial on the same tape...measure in cm and your size in inches will be directly below :rolleyes::D

True, they’ve realised that dividing by 2.54 with the aid of a calculator is pretty tough..

Well regardless of conversions or jokes about conversion...it looks like both the indigo and black 50s are only 11.5” in the front rise for a 36...


any help with a reliable size chat (preferably in inches) would be appreciated 

the indigofera looks good according to standard and strange charts....they are sold out but could be worth seeking out
