same deal. post how certain styles of jeans fit. include brand name, style name, any pertainent info (such as if the 501's are from the LVC collection or modern STF's), and measurements in inches (or centimeters) at the waist, the seat measurements, the thigh (2 inches below crotch), knee and leg opening. if you cant get all those, post what you can and hopefully someone else can fill in the rest. this will go into the FAQ

yeah if people could keep the contributions to actual measurements instead of discussion on how things relatively fit, that would be better. remember this is being compiled for a faq so we dont have to have kids making "how do stf's fit" threads every 5 minutes.
May 02, 2007 @ 18:12
yes and going with what stepping said not everyoen is built the same way so they may fit a certina way on you but very differently one someone else

Are you a pretty big dude? (no offense) just wondering...
May 16, 2007 @ 12:39
Haha, yeah kind of. I'm not really 'fat' per se, but I do have a gut. I'm 5'8" and my mid 20s weight was 170, but now I'm at 200lbs. My thighs are what cause me the biggest issue otherwise I might be able to go down a size on the waist. I'm working on getting back to my normal weight, though my waist has always been about 33-34". I have a pretty stalky build.
May 23, 2007 @ 14:18
These are from my WDYWT post...But yeah

These are Nudie Slim Jim Dry Blacks, size 30x32 I was thinking about getting a 34 inseam, but I dont know...

May 23, 2007 @ 14:48

Well maybe you have a different body type? I'm really skinny dude, so that's prob why the fit like that...

If you want APC's the inernet-rule seems to be getting two sizes down, because they run big, and they stretch alot. You're about my height and you like a 30" length? that shit's way too short for me and I wear my jeans low. APC's come in 36".
Jun 30, 2007 @ 22:45
apcs come in a 34 inseam
Jul 07, 2007 @ 09:44
