Just to see if I can get a better grasp on the sizing issue, I saw your collection, and I saw the Paiges there. Are they the Laurel Canyons? And if so, may I ask what size you take in those? Because I know I'm a 27 in those.
And, therefore, if you could also tell me what size you are in the Bombays (and perhaps the NYEs, because I'm lusting after those too *g*), I could actually figure out what size to get. *g*
Yes, it's the Laurel Canyon light clean. I've lost a size and a lot of my jeans in 25 fit very loosely, but the 25 in Laurel Canyon fit perfectly. So they run a tad small, they're actually tighter than my NYES, and they're a 24.
I have the bombays in 25 as well. They're not skin tight on me, but fit in the waist, and I think they look good. So unless you want them really skin tight I would have gone with the 27 in the Bombays, IMO.
And IMO, the NYEs run big, so I'd go with a 26 in those. Just don't count me to it
We're all built differently, so the best thing really is to try them on somewhere, or in my case, measure the jeans you've got, and compare to the ones that you're interested in. If you have the measurements, that is. If you're not buying on ebay, maybe you can get members in your size to measure the ones in the styles you're interested in?
