SFAM sizing thread

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I think this was suggested in another thread so I'm just going to go ahead and start it. I hope that others will add to this, and this will be stickied.

I'm a pretty TTS 26.

-BKK Crystal A's, size 27, 98/2% blend: run tts (too big for me), run large in the waist, tight in the thighs
-Dojo Grommets, size 27, 100% cotton: run about 1/2 size too small (just a bit loose for me), run tight in the hips and upper thigh, waist is pretty tts
-DHV Studded A's, size 26, 100% cotton: run tts (at least my pair), run smallish in the waist and tts everywhere else

That's all I currently have, but here are things I used to own but have sold/traded away:

-NYD Tricolor A's, size 26, 98/2% blend: run tts but smallish in the thighs and hips
-Catalina flare miniskirt, size 27,98/2% blend: runs tts but sits high on the waist if you don't size up
-Ireland Tricolor Crop A's, size 26, 98/2% blend: runs small about 1/2 size but will stretch over the course of the day
-Bombay A's, size 27, 100% cotton: fits 1 full size small, runs 1 size big in the waist and 1/2 size small in the upper thighs, tts in the hips.
-St. Tropez Flynts, size 27, 98/2% blend: run tts in the waist, but run 1/2 size small in the hips and thighs
-Medium New York bootcuts, size 27, 98/2% blend: run 1/2 size small everywhere except the waist which runs tts
-Milwaukee Mia's, size 26, 98/2% blend: run 1/2 size small everywhere, especially in the thighs and hips
-Nakita bootcuts, size 26, 98/2% blend: run tts everywhere, extremely stretchy but one of the softest washes in SFAM
-Vancouver Crystal A's, size 26, 98/2% blend: run a tad small everywhere but stretch out to be tts after wearing
-Vienna Cactus Flynts, size 27, 98/2% blend: run a full size small in the hips and 1/2 a size in the thighs, waist is tts
-Aruba A's, size 27, 100% cotton: one full size small everywhere, very thin denim that is prone to getting worn spots around seams

Hope that helps!

Great thread! The ones you mentioned that I also have (NYD tricolors, Bombay As, and St Tropez flynts) I completely agree with.

I am around a 28 usually so these are based off my experiences, I have listed the size I own/have owned in them and how I thought they've run

NYD flares 29 1/2 size big, stretches out like crazy
NYD pink crystal (older pair) 28 1/2 size small, runs slim through waist/hips/thighs
NYD bronze crystal 29 1/2 to 1 size small, fits more like 28, nowhere near as big as NYD flares
MNE boycuts 28 TTS, holds shape well, I LOVE these
Glacier bootcuts 28 TTS but very stretchy (Glacier As are not stretchy at all, weird)
Broadway boycuts 28 TTS at the waist but 1 size large in thighs. (Boycuts are cut this way?)
Havana 1s 29, 27 About one size small (29s a bit big, 27s way too small)
China Flynts 29 About one size small
Black Ribbon Flynts 28 TTS, cut slim at the waist/hips/thighs though, stretchy
Winsdor Flynt crops 28 feels like they run way small at hips/thighs, fit like 27
Winsdor Green A-pocket crops 1/2 small to TTS
Broadway Flynts 29 TTS, holds shape pretty well, these don't get too loose on me
Sugarplum As (old issue) 1/2 size small
Dark Havana As 28 1 size small at the waist, tts everywhere else

Dark Seville Camilla guachos 29 one size small IMO
Beaten Havana Dojos 29, 29 1/2 size small to TTS
Lightweight tan cords 28 1/2 size big
Daisy shorts 29 1/2 size big (don't size up )

I am a true 27.

-Medium New York Flare sigs - runs a one size small IMO. A 27 was too tight at the upper thighs and hips for me.
-Caribbean Flare sigs - runs TTS. I have this in a 28, and they get baggy by the end of the day. They are my comfy/I-feel-like-shit-today jeans
-Brooklyn A's - runs one size small. I had this in a 27 and it was way too tight at the waist.
-Seville bootcut sigs - runs one size small/get rigid jeans size
-Milwaukee sigs - runs a bit small, but get usual size because it stretches

Errr..not sure if this is the right place for a sizing question...I don't like my pants fitted, I like them slightly baggy/loose (I feel self-concious about my thighs when my pants are too tight). I bought a pair of 7FAM off eBay (HF people say they're real) size 30...they were too tight on my thighs! Granted, I am pear shaped, but since I usually wear about a 2-6 (6 is usually on the border of too big) I was surprised that a size 30 (eq. 8-10) was too small! Then I went to Nordstrom, tried on a pair of A's (sorry, I forgot to get the exact style name) size 29 and they were baggy in the thighs. Then went back to eBay seller dailydenim's auctions where they list the thigh measurement for a 7FAM dojo that was 20 in. Usually I like the measurement of the thighs to be at least 10.5 in to 11 in. max. Help! What do you think my 7FAM size is? Thanks for answering!
PS: excuse the long post!

try the ginger style by 7...wider leg/thigh and higher waist that is smaller...try that one in a 30...

if you want thigh circumfrence to be between 20-22 inches...I would def. say a 31 or 32 in 7's would do the trick...then have the waist taken in becaue if you are a 2-6 they are going to fall off of you at the waist.

Not sure if this is the right place to post (I'm new), but I'm looking for sizing help. I am new to 7FAMK; I usually am a 27 in kelly bootcut COH's and are wondering how 7's compare (particularly the NYD, honduras, and vista del mar washes). For reference, I am btw a 2-4 in Gap/JCrew/Banana republic and 28 in Paige.

Thanks!!

Seems you would be a TTS 27. Depending on a wash or cut you might need a 26 or a 28.
