OK, hopefully someone will respond to this question. I just got a pair of Steel Liberties in size 25. They are loose from the waist to the hip, and comfortably snug in the calves. Am I better off getting a 24, or getting these altered?

Could someone who has tried on both 24 and 25 give me some idea of the fit difference, not just on top, but also the calves? (I have very slender calves, so I can't imagine anything smaller). I just want to make sure before I blow 185 GBP on new Superfines. Thanks in advance!

I've heard that it's difficult to find 24's in London! (liberty wax style) My friend searched for them at my request and only found size 25..
So if anybody sees any size 24 ones anywhere, let me know pleeease.

Hi Pucci - sorry for not getting back to you sooner - I've been in Las Vegas for the past 2 weeks! However, I do have to report that I got the Wax style Superfines in Liberty London yesterday. They look very lovely on the legs but I do find they are kind of on the large size. I got the Liberty style in size 24 and even then they are quite big around my hips, tum and butt area. Plus they come up almost to my belly button which is weird after year's in low slung pants. It would be bad if they stretch out...

I am going to show them to my husband and get his opinion before deciding on whether to keep them or return them - I wonder if the Notifys would be a better bet??.

Hi there! I tried on both the 24 and 25 and found both to be similarly big from waist to hip and found only a little difference in the tightness of the legs. I hope this helps. I am not sure whether or not I will keep mine - while they are perfect on my legs they are big up top and for £185 they have to be perfect all over

I tried on the 24 and 25 libertys but not in the wax (unfortunately!).

i found the 24 to be the tiniest bit smaller than the 25 in the hips, waist, bum area (still too big though)...but much smaller than the 25 in the legs. just thought i'd offer a different perspective...though i don't know how much that helps you!

has anyone had their jeans tailored to fit better in the bum or to lower the waist? if so...i'd be quite interested to know how this is done. (i dont want low rise jeans but i'm so short-waisted)

droogist, did you ever find the Max style? I might be interested in a pair.

The Wax jeans are sized diffently from their other jeans - normally a 25 would be fine for me but the wax ones seem bigger...

Still looking...I'm going to be in Paris in few weeks, and will try my luck then - looks like they have a lot of stockists over there. I'll let you know if I manage to hunt them down.

Thanks! I wouldn't say "bored," but there's usually a lot of stress and bother involved, which I don't exactly relish...

luckyme, have you tried calling barneys? they are listed as superfine stockists.

i am looking for the same jeans....i may pop over there today and see if they have them. I kind of doubt it though, since the skinny fixation seems to have taken over the entire market over here...

i will let you know if i see anything, anyway.

Hi twilight Fairy - if you are still looking for the 24 Wax Superfines in the Liberty cut I will be returning mine to Liberty in London when I am over from Paris on Friday the 29th of September. They were a little too big for me aroudn the hips, tum and butt.
