Been searching for a brand for months on end that make selvedge jeans in a skinny fit, I like the fit of Cheap Mondays, because they're the skinniest jeans around here without being ridiculously tight..

- These are the kind of fit I have - 
http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/cheap-monday-tight-favourite-jeans/invt/5222462111144/&colour=Denim

But they don't do raw denim or selvedge, I just wish I could find selvedge jeans with the same kind of taper, but my search has left me with nothing so far..

Anyone got any ideas? Brands available in the UK are a plus, but not a requirement.

Cheers guys!

there are shitloads of places that have skinny selvedge denim in the UK


By the sounds of it APC Petit Standards would be perfect for you, you can get them from so many places in the UK just google them.

I have looked into APC, but as a norther there aren't a ton of places that I can find 'em, I was worried about ordering online cause of the whole size up size down thing, and was under the impression the leg opening may be a bit wide, whereas I'm after (almost) skin tight on the opening (difficult with raw denim and selvedge I know)..

I will have to have a better look though, thank you.

Yeah buying online is always a gamble, it's good to find a site with free returns like MR Porter so if they don't fit you can just switch sizes up or down, Also petit standards have a really small leg opening

Tried some APC's on the other day and they still seem really wide, they looked much wider than those above ^ is there something I'm missing? I could get them tapered but it sucks paying £125 for a pair of jeans just to spend another £25 altering them...

what model did you try on? theres a fair few different cuts, people also tend to size down a few sizes to make up for the amount they stretch over time

Went for Petit Standards in a 31 (My usual waist is 30-32 so went for the middle, did seem a bit relaxed around the waist) the leg opening was still quite wide..

you should try sizing down 1-2 sizes, they will be tight at first but they will stretch

Will have to go back and try some more than, still probably going to have to get them altered anyway as I prefer a 30/32 leg and I believe all APC's come in a standard 34?
