Where in Sydney do they stock it?

I still haven't placed my order at revolveclothing because I'm just not sure about the sizing. I usually wear a 27 in most jeans but I'm fraid these run smaller because of the material and they are not supposed to stretch so I'm not sure. I tried on a pair of Levis wax jeans on the weekend and they were so tight and uncomfortable that I would have to go up two sizes.

I hope not, besides they should work on the fit rather than the material

yep, they do. That particular pair didn't even look like Levis. The fit was terrible though. Very very low cut (which I hate) and didn't make a nice butt. Just wanted to try to see how these wax jeans look on.

anyone looking for the black waxed Notify skinnys should either go to or call Scoop Street in the Meatpacking District. I was in their yesterday and they had what looked like multiple sizeruns of them just sitting there untouched. I was tempted to get a pair, but I know from the past that Notify womens jeans just don't work on men at all.

Ooh...can you elaborate a little bit on how it doesn't work on you? Is the fit weird or just uncomfortable to wear?

I have tried on a few different styles and I just found that they really looked like girls' pants. Sometimes I think skinnys can be unisex (APC, Acne, etc.), but the Notify's really just seemed to be made strictly for a woman's body. They seemed too low in the front and high in the back. It may have had something to do with the size though, I am a 28 (probably more like a 27) and I only tried on 29s. I am still very tempted to try the black wax style though, because I know the quality is on spot and they are really cute.

yes you are totally right. the back is a lot higher than the front to protect privacy I actually like it that way (but probably not suitable for guys). The quality is actually the best I've seen. All those stitching and details are amazing.

^yeah it kind of creates a weird look on guys. You are absolutely right though, the quality is amazing. I have two pairs of men's from them which I love. .

Is that the case for all types of Notify? I have the Calypso intrigue jeans in 28 and it fits me fine, but can get a bit loose after wearing it for a whole day...although it is very low waisted, it doesn't look especially girlish...I'm still waiting for revolveclothing to get back on my special size order in 28 but I wonder if I should just order 29 from another website since most experiences here indicates that it runs slightly smaller and don't stretch out much...I don't want to go through the hassle of returning but I am dying to try these jeans on...I should go to the store but I have just been so damn busy lately...MJ did you try on the black wax anemone in 29, or were you just talking about your experience with other styles? I am so indecisive it's killing me

ok just for reference this is the calypso jeans and then the black oily anemone

revolveclothing

I just ordered the anemone off revolveclothing. They only had 25 and 27 left so I ordered them in 27 which is my actual jeans size. I'm really afraid that they might be too tight and I would have to send them back and not being able to size up because they are out of stock in 28.
Do they really run much smaller because of the fabric? I noticed that they have 2% elasthane which other jeans have as well so I would think they will stretch after a while. Can't wait to get them and try them on irl.
