^ cheers… post 30C wash, though not dry yet, there’s been a decent length shrinkage but only a tad on waist 

I’d need some stretch in the waist and hips for sure (and that’s pre/wash) but that’s usually a done deal

I’ll wear ‘em tomorrow and see what happens 

Worst case, they’ll find a home… and I’ll have had a free / low cost substance-free buzz… woo hoo :)

So… the online shop said

  • W34 waist 85cm Crossing width 35,5cm 25 hem width 24, 5cm Crotch 35cm Crotch 76cm
  • Since it will be shipped without washing, it will be delivered in a larger size than the above. Be sure to wash it once before wearing it.

The measured raw product in hand said (all in cm) 

  • Waist 42.5 (85) / Thigh at crotch 36 / FR 35 / BR 45 / Inside leg 77 / Hem 26

The good news... after a day of wear, they fit nicely... 1.5 cm stretch from raw on the waist and 3.5 cm shrink in length

  • Waist 42.5 (now 44) / Thigh at crotch 36 (same) / FR 35 (34) / BR 45 (same) / Inside leg 77 (73.5) / Hem 26

The bad news... FedEx came in with a late tax bill of £49.14... not so nice

Meanwhile, the rich in the UK are gifted tax cuts while us mere denim-for-own-use importers continue to suffer.  Does a guy/gal earning £1m per year really need an extra £65k per year?

They're very lighweight c10oz jeans so it likely to be a while til they get some proper wear.

I don’t think there’s a thread so I’ll ask here but does anyone have experience with deluxewear flannels?

 They look great! but I’m not sure about the sizing. 
 

I usually wear an American medium but I have a sugarcane shirt that’s a large and a pherrows that’s an xl.

Interesting. Like you say, they’ve been around for years and if you look through any old issues of Lightning, they were at the bottom end of the price range, at about half the cost of most repro brands (¥10 k or so). Their designs were always a little wacky too and wouldn’t appeal to the repro enthusiasts. These look much better BUT at a significantly higher price. They may be jumping on the bandwagon a little belatedly here.
