Sizing??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys!

Confused (as usual)!

Does this sound right?

From your normal stretch bootcut size you should go one up from that for rigid bootcut and stretch a pockets, two up for rigid a pockets?

For example if you are a 28 stretch in bootcut, you would wear a 29 stretch a pocket and rigid bootcut and a 30 in rigid a pockets?

Want to buy some things I haven't tried on before and the measurements I'm being told seem crazy! Any advice greatly appreciated!

Hi Bunny!

I can give you the following infos from my own experience:

Bootcut Stretch: 27 in NYD, CAR, MNE; 28 in NYE, MLN
Bootcut Rigid: 28 in NYD, MNE; 29 in MLN

A Pocket Stretch: 27 in Tricolor, Sugar Plum Crystal; 28 in Rose, Baby Blue, Pearl A Pocket (all in the Windsor wash), Pearl and Begonia in AMS wash
A Pocket Rigid: 28 in "newer" Pink A's (cut number 703XXX); 29 in older Pink A's (cut number 701XXX or 702XXX), Blue A's

Flare Stretch and Rigid: just like the Bootcuts

Havana 1: 29
Havana 2: 28
Crystal Havana: 29

I hope this helps!

Greets, Bianca

Ok thanks that's great! Still lost though - that shows just how all over the place sizing can be! I have 27 stretch in mne that have just worn out completely, holes and all - they were great but I wouldn't mind another inch on the waist so thought I'd go for 28 stretch next time round. I had 28 rigid in panamas that fit but too tight for my liking, and 27 in white painted pockets which fit but looked yuck! My 28 stretch in R&R fit perfect. I accidently bought 29 stretch nyd for my first pair and they were so too big it wasn't funny. A bit wary of buying anything else that big but seems I"ll need to?

I'm looking to buy:

NYE (thinking 28?)
SEV (thinking 29?)
Bombay A (29 or 30?)
Pearl A AMS (29 or 29?)
CCA crystal As (28 or 29?)

As I can't try these on here, I'll prob stuff up and buy the wrong size If anyone has waist measurements for any of these I'd be very grateful!

I asked for the measurements on size 29 CCA a pocket, and the reply I got was 30.5"! That seems incredibly small, or is it just me? Another pair on ebay (steel, reputable seller) the same size says 33" waistband!

That sounds good to me - 30.5'' for a size 29 can't be correct! The Gunmetal A Pockets run big, so I should fit into a size 27 which means they're a 31'' waist. Two sizes larger should mean 2'' more in the waist, so 33'' sounds great to me!

THANKS! That's really helpful! So a 28 in CCA would be 31" waist, 29 would be 32" and in CMN (?) a 28 would have a 32" waist, and the 29 = 33"?

We need a size chart with what sizes everyone has bought in different styles compared to their basic bootcuts.

I have stretch bootcuts, stretch a-pocket capris, non-stretch a-pockets, and non-stretch havana 2 flares.. and so far I wear the same size in all. I've found that even the non-stretches will stretch out to fit you, maybe even one whole size. My non-stretch a-pockets stretched out to feel just like the stretch ones after wearing them a couple times.

Yeah, I believe those guesses should be correct!
