I have the calypso intrigue jeans in 28 and they fit pretty true to size I think...if not a little be big because I have worn 28s from other brands that run smaller...but it may be the cut as well since the calypso is a loose bootcut...I would love to try the glossy and oily blue/grey anemones and helloboras but I can't seem to find any stores that carry those...Jeffrey usually carries Notify but I only saw some cords on sale when I was there...anyway all the Notifys have super long inseams but since I'm 6' I don't need to get them altered. Im pretty impressed with their denim quality in general

yes, please do report back caffeine when you get to try them on.

I'm interested in their blue/grey oily finish.

Foxie: you are 6'?? Wow.. you lucky thing. Thanks for the comments about fit.. have to check out if the dept. stores here will carry the oil finish.

What is the difference between the Hellebora and the Anemone? Is it that the Anemone has a skinnier leg? I am def gonna buy one of them in the wax finish, not sure which, I want whichever one is skinnier. I normally wear a size 26, so I am going to try on the Notify jeans stocked in Sydney (ie like, 2 pairs ) for the fit and then order them online.



Notify Anemone 4 Pocket in Dark Blue Glossy from revolveclothing. You can't really tell they're glossy jeans from the pic, though.

I tried the oily black Hellebora at AB fits in San Francisco a month ago, and they where just stunning. They are VERY long, which was great since I am 6'1 tall, but they where the longest jeans I ever tried.

They might run a bit small at the waist, 31 fit me perfectly even though I often wear 30.

They are absolutely beautiful, I just have no idea how they have to be washed and to me it felt as if the color might come off onto sofas/ chairs/ clothes.

If you read the style description at revolveclothing closely, it tells you the measurement of the different styles. The anemone is a skinnier straight leg measuring at 15 around the knees and ankles. The hellobora is slightly boot legged at around 14 for the knees and 15 at the ankles. Hope this helps. I personally can't shop for jeans online because I have to see the fit on myself before I can decide on something...

I found a fit guide at active endeavors...it's quite helpful

I got my size 25 jeans. It's comfortable on the legs, but the butt part has a little extra room. The legs are amazing though. Should I go down to 24 (try to find one) or is that possible to have it altered?

I think it's better to size down because it will probably stretch out even more with wear...also, it's probably a pain to alter the seat and it will cost a lot more so if possible, I'd try the 24 you should post pictures of you in the jeans

Thanks I'll try to do so tonight. The problem is that size 24 is not available anywhere...

I put them on again. the waist is actually tight. 24 might be too small. I will ask for teh tailor's opinion on the sizing and the extra fabric.Hopefully it's not too expensive.

Thanks for the update Caffeine I'm usually a size 26, but I'm going to order a 27 in the wax Anemones.

Caffeine, i'd love to see a pic of you wearing them so that I get an idea of how they look on a real person.
