buying a pair of jeans is like buying a bra. find the right fit and you're golden. if you don't find the right fit, it's torture. (please don't let Beecher know we compared his jeans to bras. he wouldn't know what we're talking about anyways.)
sizing. ah. an online shoppers' worst nightmare. trust us. we hated it too. bu before you panic and need a drink to calm your nerves, let us do our best to help you.
here's what to do.
1) take a cloth tape measure from it's hiding space (not going to lie, we keep ours in the junk-drawer. because why not?!).
2) wrap it comfortably around your waist at belly-button height.
3) you're going to get a size in inches. let's just say it's 28". perfect. you're going to wear a size 28 in our denim. if it's 24", you're going to wear a size 24.
one note: if the size in inches is a little bigger number than the waist size you normally wear, DON'T PANIC! Vintage denim runs a bit smaller than modern day denim.
For OVERALLS: we measure with a cloth tape measure from the left top waist-button to the right top waist-button and double the measurement. So if we get 13", it translates to an extra small. XS is a 23-26" waist; S is 27"-29" waist; M is 30"-32" waist; L is 33"-35"; XL is 36"-39".
WASH: Personally we don't wash our jeans a whole lot. We find everyday wear and tear just makes the patina that much better. BUT when you must wash, flip these inside out and gingerly place into the wash with the rest of your clothes. And you can tumble dry them too. No downsides here.
