apc tight

No, their prices are fair for NA IMO. Acne has always been at the upper end of the spectrum in regards to prices in Canada or the US. $250-$300+ CDN or so is the going rate for most Acne denim over here (NA). Most of the fits however are not truly skinny, just tapered. Denim is decent enough, as is overall construction.

yah, well 250-200 CDN is not 120 US, which is what i would rather pay...heh

but they're outrageously overpriced as usual.

if you can find someone in sweden to ship them to you, it shouldn't be too bad - i just paid $180 including shipping, paypal fees, and a bit of profit for him for a pair of max's.

Get some APC tight or Julian Red Hoboken. For something less expensive try cheap monday.

I'm a 28 waist in DH denims (19cm opening) do you think I should get a 28 waist in JR Hoboken's? Thanks!

Best way would be to email the Julian Red main site with sizing questions (waist, thigh, rise, leg opening etc) that way you'd be able to see if you fit them....because not everyone has the same waist/thigh/calves/etc proportions...The person responsible for the site is very friendly and has answered questions in the past.

They are about 1" larger than tag size... measure yourself or your jeans. I suggest getting a pair that is tagger 2" smaller than what your hips measure.

SOME GIRLS ARE BIGGER THAN OTHERS

Just to clear up a couple of things:

Tight = Cure. Same jeans. If you buy "tight" jeans off the website, the jeans you get in person will have a tag that says "CURE" on them.

The women's and men's cure jeans have no discernable differences aside from about a 1" lower rise on the women's, and the better selection of sizing.

I have a pair of women's cure jeans, size 27 (most of my jeans are 29s, my Levi's are 30s) and they fit very similarly to 29 Dior Homme jeans, but with a slightly higher rise and without the horizontal darts on the back pockets. Also, the Dior Homme jeans seem to stop tapering around 30-32", while the cures taper all the way down to the end of the seam (I believe about 36" but with a lot of variation).

Overall I'd stick with the APCs because I am sick and tired of the starved rockstar look - I moved on already.

wild_whiskey, would you say that the Tights taper more than the JR Californias? Also, if possible could you measure the leg openings on your Tights? Thanks.
