Thanks Grill & elschic111 for the info! I just checked back on this thread, so belated thank yous.

Disappointed to hear that the 24's are not smaller. I have a a 25" waist and 34" hips, but the 25 Libertys are very roomy on top. I have no idea why Superfine does not make jeans that fit a thinner, but not super-skinny, woman. I worry that altering will throw off the placement of pockets, etc.

Does Kate Moss get hers altered?

I have a few questions to ask as I will be in London soon.

How much do they cost on average?
What sizes are available?
Do they strech a lot or a little?

Thank you.

Also have another question. Do you think it would be cheaper to buy them in London or Paris? Or is it the same.

my guess it's cheapest to buy them in london, since it's a british designer. They cost about $180-$200, they're avalible from 24 up to 32 I think, and they really dont stretch out much at all

Does anybody know how the sizing works for new model race (with side pannels) I usually wear a 27 (acne, filippa k, h&M) but i got a 28 in superfine race jeans, as they didnt had any in 27 and it was half price. I had them altered a little bit in the waist area. The salesgirl said they would not stretch, but actually i think they stretch quite a bit. They are not super super thight right now, but still thight enough. Although around the waist and *** they are quite lose. Unfortunately i was not able to try on a 27. I keep thinking i should not have bought this one and a 27 would have fitted so much better....
What is your experience, do you reckon they are true to size or are sligtly smaller/ bigger than other brands???

I'll try posting a picture later on ..

If anyone knows where to buy a pair of waxed Liberties in size 24, please let me know. I was on the wait list at a few stores, but they never called me back.

Thanks!

Which city do you live in? I know Scoop in NYC carries them. I bought mine there in December.

I live in Ohio. A month ago, I called every US stockist. Many don't carry Superfines smaller than 25/26. I found two that had 24's. I was on the waitlist, and they never called me back. Arggg. I even offered to prepay for them. I just gave up after a while.

Velony, did Scoop have them in 24's? I will also check Steve Alan, as their price is much lower than other stores.

I'm pretty sure they had them in 25's and they could have had them in 24 as well. I'm not sure though. I would give them a call.

Thanks Velony! I will call them. How do they fit? The 25 Liberties (regular finish) are too big for me, but I heard the new 24's run large?

Depending on how you would want to wear these I'd say they run pretty true to size. I'm a 27 in most jeans and the liberties in 27 fit me perfectly although they are very stretchy and I have still some room. Let me know if they have them in your size.

I just called them, and they found a size 24 for me! Very courteous and helpful sales staff. I even got them on sale. Thank you again Velony! You were a great help.
