^ I bought the New Standards and went down one size from my usual; I could easily have gone down two. They have stretched quite a bit.

If you like to wear them slouchy, go down one size; I doubt they will be skin-tight after stretching if you go down two sizes, but they will be pretty tight at first. They stretch quickly, though.

I found out the smallest size in the New Standards is still too big for me, since they stretch out so much and all. But they're the only jeans that I've liked the look of in a long while (NOT low rise, no worn-in effects, sort of a tomboyish fit). Does anyone know of any other brands that might be similar with smaller sizes? I've tried Levi's as well, but they also run big.

If you can find Geisha jeans you might like them; Blue in Green is out of stock now, but you could contact them and see when/if they are getting a new shipment. They are excellent quality jeans that meet your specs.

oooo, the samurai line looks very interesting! love the shadow thread for the back pockets - how they stand out more the older the jeans get! any advice on how these shrink?

If I remember correctly, my Samurais did not shrink much, and they shrank to tag size, so you should get your "regular" size.

Word is that Levi's has sued a number of companies for trademark infringement and there is at least a fair chance that the next batch of Samurai/Geisha imported into the US will not have the same back pocket design. FYI...

really? the website made a pt. to mention that the dimensions for a size were given pre-wash, so i expected that the jeans would shrink significantly. have you washed them more than once?

levis oh they are fools. these back pocket designs are all in hommage, granted they are to the levis of old, but still, it keeps the brand alive if anything. regardless of what the actual design is, i still think it's very cool that it was a dark stitch - seeing the pic of how they will age, where everything fades but that dark stitching - that was brilliant.

I wear a size 26 in "regular" jeans (which usually measure a 28" waist in vanity sizing). I bought a New Cure 25, which has an exact 25" waist. So technically, I went down three sizes. Just take the waist measurement of one of your perfectly fitted pair of jeans and then go down two or three sizes. Three sizes is rather painful the first couple of weeks.... but they fit pretty well now.

APC raised their prices at lot.

I have only washed mine once so far. They might have shrunk 2 inches in length and one in the waist, but in any case, I ordered the same size I wear in most brands.

I have been told, though, that the Geishas run one size small, and you should order one size larger than usual.

The Geishas I have seen all had gold thread on blue denim; I haven't seen the dark stitch ones.

hmm, apc keep shrinking it seems in each wash - even if those washes are spaced years apart, lol. same for the levis shrink-to-fit. i assumed it was true of any unwashed denim.
i guess the pair i was talking about was the samurai s710xx 19oz. jean.

It may very well be that they continue to shrink; I have not washed any of mine many times, and they stretch out again when I wear them, so I can't really say with authority.

Samurais are nice jeans, too.

Please credit those photos, HiHeels, thanks!

Hipster
hey any males have experience with the hipster jeans available on the US website? i've read a horrifying testimony of crushed testicles and a "my boyfriend wears them and he loves them" type testimony. the sale and the bleached black available in what i'm assuming would fit me is causing me to consider cross dressing. some wisdom would be great. thanks.
