Hey, this blog's great! It's been really interesting reading your adventures in denim. I'm about to buy a pair of Raymonds (not the selvage version, just raw) - given the stretch, would you recommend buying a size smaller than usual or going true to size?
Hi James. My usual sizes is 32W 34L. I buy the same in raw and washed denim. The shrinking in Raw denim is about 5% or 2cm, but if you've worn them in first, then they've stretched to about a 34W and will shrink back to 32W. That's pretty much how it's worked out for me.
