Absolutely brilliant.
I've heard a rumor that there is a company that just got the rights to distribute them in Toronto, so I can't wait to see them around :D
Gotta love those Joey Overdrives...

Does anyone know how the sizing of their denim compares with Thin Finns or maybe Levis 514? I'm thinking of ordering my true size, but I dunno.

Is that how people dress in europe or something?

Try dressing like that in SoCal and your asking for an ass kicking, rightfully so.

Sweet, my friend's friend in France is sending us two 32x32's in Joey Overdrives. I hope the inseam is actually more that 32 so that I can sag them a big :(
If they don't fit, I can always sell them 8)

Does anyone have any idea how much they cost in France?

What are braces. Or do you mean the ones that straighten your teeth?

does anybody know the sizing of the overdrives? a 74cm / 29 inch waist is fine for me, i wear a 29 in almost all my nudies, 28 is also ok but sometimes a little tight. a 30'' waist is definetly large on me.

i was thinking of getting a pair of the black overdrives. i found a pair of normal dry on ebay in a 30'' waist and the seller had measured a 84cm waist, so i suppose these run large? also do they stretch a lot?

I've heard they run small in the legs but normal size in the waist.
I have some 32's on the way and I take a 30 or 29 in nudies, so I think I might need to invest in a belt :(

white_giraffe
9th March 2007, 07:27
i think the waist runs a little large but the legs will be super tight. i think the best thing to do is get measurements and buy according to how you want the leg to fit.

hi, just got me a joeys overdrive - but not really my style - way 2 tight for me - they are like spandex :-)

I just got some joey overdrives as well, should be here in a week or so , I'm having second thoughts, seems like they're gonna be super tight. They're raw, so I'm hoping they'll stretch?

my mom bought it in singapore! in heeren or hereen i forgot, the shop is Queen! in there you can also see tsubi,japanese denim (forget the brand), cheap monday..

beautiful_FrEaK
28th February 2008, 20:37
hey...does anybody owns a cheap monday tight and a april 77 joey overdrive? if so, can you please compare the fit an tell me your measurements? thx a lot!

SoulRebel

check april77.fr for the new website and the awesome new collection

beautiful_FrEaK
29th February 2008, 21:18
erm yes...it's nice! but i allready know that (if you talking to me) :mrgreen: no offense.
thx anyway

but can't nobody help me and tell what sizes they wear in "cheap monday tight" and "joey overdrive"? i've got a cheap monday and a friend of mine is going to paris and will proxy one for me. so i'm not absolutely sure which size to get in joey overdrive..:confused:

aprilguy
1st March 2008, 01:30
check april77.fr for the new website and the awesome new collection

You must be joking.

Beautiful_Freak: I have a pair of black colourdrives; I don't think they differ much from the overdrives. I sized down from 30 to 29, but I wanted them really tight. I guess if you buy the size you would wear in any regular jeans that doesn't fit you too loosely, you should be fine.

beautiful_FrEaK
1st March 2008, 01:37
thanks dude!

i wanna sag them a bit and wear them a little baggy but the thights and calves should be tight. i think i'll stick with the same size as my cheap mondays.
but, any other information is welcome :-D

aprilguy
1st March 2008, 01:44
Well... the waist is rather big compared to the legs, so you definitely shouldn't size up. Just take your regular size.

Where does your friend intend to get them, at Noir Kennedy?

beautiful_FrEaK
1st March 2008, 09:37
he doesn't know anything :lol:
i've made a briefing for him. so he should check "noir kennedy" or the "april 77 flagship store", which will open at the beginning of march. he's there around end of march.
or would you recommend any other shop?
thx for the sizing tipp. do you know if the overdrive also stretches with wear and shrinks back with washing as nudies do? it have to i think 'cause it's also raw denim. but who knows?! :-D

iwannudies
1st March 2008, 12:45
Hmm you can get them at Denimbar if your friend can't find them in Paris ;-)

aprilguy
1st March 2008, 12:50
Noir Kennedy is a punk shop in Rue du Roi de Sicile, in the middle of Le Marais. But the flagstore would be better of course. Isn't going to be in Le Marais as well?
Are you sure they are part of the new collection? If not, you might not find them.

Once again, if you normally wear your jeans a bit loose in the waist: size down for these, because april77 is usually large in the waist. If not, buy your normal size.

As far as the stretch is concerned - I'm not sure; mine aren't really dry and I haven't washed them yet anyway. But they all have 2% elasthane, like nudies.

beautiful_FrEaK
1st March 2008, 13:10
denimbar doesn't stock them anymore.

thx aprilguy.
i asked the folks at royalcheese.com and they compared the cheap monday and the overdrive for me..they told me to size one down from my cheap monday size.
if my friend doesn't find them there i'll order from them.

I'm sorry, I really thought you were. You mean the new collection on www.april77.fr ?
Well, I must stay faithful to my signature, but... honestly.

Which items do you like?

SoulRebel
2nd March 2008, 02:09
the jackets, the coloured jeans etc.. i digg the whole bob dylan vibe.

aprilguy
2nd March 2008, 02:34
Well I must admit that after a second look, I should say that some of the tops are quite interesting. I don't however like any of the trousers they have. Especially that pair of dark yellow ones. Euw..

SoulRebel
2nd March 2008, 03:03
for me is not, if i want to wear it, but if the vibe is getting me. and oke not the whole collection is good but some pieces and pictures are very good.

BB-Tjai
2nd March 2008, 12:57
April 77 have some great pieces of jackets for men.
Luckily I found one, but they are hard to find here in NL.
The jeans can already found in nearly every good denim store.

aprilguy
2nd March 2008, 23:01
Can they?
For a lot of the fits you'll have to visit the girls' section.

beautiful_FrEaK
3rd March 2008, 19:33
erm..just by the way..why is this thread not in the "french brands section" ?!

it's hard to get april 77 here in germany..as least there where i live

beautiful_FrEaK
8th March 2008, 11:45
@ aprilguy: you posted in the cheap monday thread, that the overdrives WERE good, but the new collections sucks. did they change anything about the overdrives?
can't decide if i should buy a overdrive or a dictator...

28th March 2008, 07:46
I tried these on recently, they are only for the super super skinny. Ridiculous.

deviousfool
28th March 2008, 07:57
you should have taken a picture and posted it here, cameland :mrgreen:
i would be interested in the grey jeans if they don't have the ugly April77 patch at the backpocket.

Sorry b_f, I overlooked your question. The new April77 collection is just not my taste, I suppose there's nothing essentially wrong with it.
And if they still have the overdrives in their collection, go for it.


they are only for the super super skinny.
that would be me

beautiful_FrEaK
28th March 2008, 17:42
no problem aprilguy. my friend visited paris last week and bought the overdrives for me. next week he'll come back to Germany and will give me my "present" ;-)
i hope they'l fit!

aprilguy
28th March 2008, 18:16
Good. Keep us informed!

beautiful_FrEaK
7th April 2008, 16:42
ok, got my joeys yesterday. they fit perfect, just like i wanted them. will post pics soon when i got my cam back. thx for the advise to stay true to size for the "baggy" look!

aprilguy
7th April 2008, 18:04
glad to hear that :-)

iwannudies
8th April 2008, 10:35
Looking forward to the pics, haven't seen any A77 Joeys worn baggy before.

beautiful_FrEaK
8th April 2008, 11:29
ok its a question of definition. perhaps i should say sagged not baggy. sorry to dissapoint you iwannudies :-D
my cam is on holiday with my parents..so pics will come in two weeks :(

iwannudies
8th April 2008, 11:31
Ahh they have to be somewhat baggy to be sagged :p

Patience paid off =D Perfect fit even though you say they're baggy, what's the size of these and the size of your other nudies?

aprilguy
22nd April 2008, 23:59
very nice b_f, very nice! Looks like you've made the right choice. I like how they are on your calves.
I for myself would have sized down, but that's just me. And anyway, now that they're not that tight, they probably won't get a lot baggier.
Congratulations. You'll have to thank your friend for this.

beautiful_FrEaK
23rd April 2008, 11:29
@iwannudies: those are size 33. i'm a 32 in nudies and a 32 in april77 would have fitted, too.
i was afraid that i might be too big for those skinny jeans, but they look great to me. and now you 2 also said that, i'm even more happy! :mrgreen:

thx@aprilguy. how often do you wash your aprils?! it's raw denim but i think you don't have to wait six month, do you? the guys at royalcheese said, that the aprils won't shrink with washing. is that right?

aprilguy
23rd April 2008, 19:34
Mine are black jeans, quite different from yours. And I haven't washed them yet :-)

same here. I have a pair of Hells Bells Metal in 30 (HB is owned by April77; practically the same), and they seemed so tight in the shop! Now my two pairs of April77 and another grey Hells Bells are 29; much better.
Too bad it always takes one wasted pair to get your size right...

yeah man. I bought mine in store though. I wanted 29, but they only had 30. Half price though, so I had to do it.

which size do you need deviousfool?!

deviousfool
3rd August 2008, 15:53
28 i think. I tried on a prewash.. (dictator i think?) and the 28s fit great.

do u have any experience with the sizing compared with nudies? it's be great if you could help me with the sizing and the place to buy a pair ;)

beautiful_FrEaK
3rd August 2008, 16:07
you probably know that the legs are the problem, not the waist. the colordrives run smaller than the overdrives...at least mine do.
true to size is good. legs should be fine and the waist is a little loose but with a belt, all is fine

beautiful_FrEaK
3rd August 2008, 16:09
you could buy from royalcheese.fr. they are also very friendly and will help you with sizing questions!

deviousfool
3rd August 2008, 16:47
so what CD size do you have ? and how are they compared to other pairs u have ?
I might be going for 28 or 29.. my true waist is 29.5" i think :-|

beautiful_FrEaK
3rd August 2008, 16:57
i own a 33. so i'm a little bigger :-D but in nudies i wear 32

The legs are the problem, unless you have skinny legs. Then you can safely size down one size, since the waist will be big enough.
If you have average legs, don't size down.

deviousfool
3rd August 2008, 17:02
that means it'd be better if I go for the 29s then. thanks aprilguy and beautiful_freak :-)

by the way, does royalcheese.fr deduct 19% tax from the price if I'm outside the EU ?
damn, even with the tax, they still cost cheaper than here.. aus retail price is crap :-?

beautiful_FrEaK
3rd August 2008, 17:10
just ask them...they probably know best ;-) but i don't see why they shouldn't

I'm totally confused now, I saw a guy with a similar build as mine (165ish cm, 55kg) and his joey thunder size 27 fits him nicely.
I don't really get how the sizing on these jeans are.. some ppl say size down 2, some even size up 1 lol..
I'm stuck between 27-29 now.. I have athletic upper thigh though.. which makes me lean more towards 28s now :roll:

I have joeys in 29 and 30

the hi-standard is tighter than all the other joeys...

I wear TLJ in 29 or 30 as well... it just depends how tight you want your jeans.

joeys are slightly tighter than tlj....

I have in all my nudies size 31 and bought recently a 31 joey overdrive raw. it's not skin tight and in the waist quite loose, so i can sag them quite well.
So i guess buy them true to your (nudie)size..

btw I haven't got a reply from royalcheese yet.. Have you ordered from them before, beautiful_freak?
I think I'm definitely buying from them, eventhough if I don't get the tax reduction..

haha yeah, well i read a lot of different things and i saw a good price on some 27s, which are the same as my finns so i figured why not. but yeah, i could barely get them over my thighs.

i think i'll definitely need a 29 or 30.

i guess you would need to size down from ur thin finn by 1 size and possibly 2 sizes to fit like superfuture. coz A77 tends to run bigger than tag size and it would stretch a lot after many wears.

aprilguy
22nd September 2008, 23:47
I'm not so sure about that. The difference between April77 and TF is that April77 runs large in the waist, but small in the legs. So if you are a person with skinny legs, it's safe to size down a bit, but never more than one size from your reals waist size. Well, let's say two sizes if you really want that super skinny look.

It really depends on how you wear your TF, if you want to compare these two brands. If you wear your TF rather tight fitting, I would take the same size. If you wear them a bit more loose, take one size smaller in April77.

I'm deciding between a 29 (like my nudies- REALLY tight) or a 30... The reason my nudies were so tight, was because the waist was SUPER tight compared to the legs, so it sounds like the waist/leg ratio thing will be ok with the april's in a 30 but I don't know...
I think what would really help would be a sizing chart... anyone know where I could find one..?

looks like revolve has the 28 in stock again.


i just got a pair of Joey Colourdrive Grey in size 29 from superfuture. i also have a pair of 27s sitting in my room, but those were waaay too tight in the legs. the 29s fit well, about like my worn in 27 finns. the waist on the 29 is big, but the legs fit well. i'll just have to wear a belt.

here's a picture, i'm sure the legs will stretch out some:
(excuse the boxer line, i need to get some briefs.
http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h176/snozepp147/DSCN2414.jpg'

to compare to nudie i'd said the waist is like a size 30 thin finn and the legs are like a size 27 or 28 finn.

15th October 2008, 00:26
looks great, Snozepp! the waist is always large with April77. It means that they will start to sag after an hour of wearing, unless you really wear your belt tight. Those jeans were made for sagging, I think.

the first one is a HIT! very nice! how did you sized em compared to nudie?

aprilguy

roiro, the leather patch -which isn't leather btw, they make a point of this- on the back pocket is a sign of their 2007 collection.
The guitar pic holder is gone as well now.

The 2008 jeans all have this patch:

As for the coated ones: I sized down, which means that I have the same size as in TFds. They are completely different though; the waist is bigger than with TF.

I'm not sure actually. I don't own any Joey Thunders. I wonder if it is more a fabric thing; the colordrives being more jeans/denimlike, and the thunders being more other (eg. softer) material. But don't pin me down on it; I'm just guessing.
There are so many Joeys: Joey Electric, Silver, Thunder, Colordrive, Kennedy... I think the fits are all the same.

Be quick if you want to buy a pair. They are all discontinued.

28th December 2008, 03:17
I bought a pair of black Joey CDs and a pair of Raw ODs (both in 26) and I'm really liking the fit so far.

For the black CD's id say the waist is probably a tad bigger than what I was expecting, not a problem now but when they stretch out it might be. The legs however fit perfectly, I'd say they fit tighter than high kais in the same size, although that might be because the denim is tougher in the Aprils. Also i love how there's more room in the whole crotch area compared to other skinny jeans, means you can have that skinny/painted on look without your junk showing. Might look into purchasing a pair of black thunders though cause the jeans dont have that deep black black look that I was hoping for.

The raw OD's however were much tigher in the waist (but just as roomy in the crotch), the legs fit just about the same. Will post pics soon.

Assuming they dont stretch out horribly over time (been wearing them both for just over a week), I'm very impressed with A77, cant wait for that marketplace to finally go online.

yep, you're right, i'm pretty confused before when i ask everyone about what size should i get.
but at the end i stick to the "down size 2 from your nudie" thing, so i got these on 28 and it fits me the way i like it.

For the black CD's I have, it felt about 1 size bigger than my nudie size (they have started to sag a little now as I've been wearing them non stop), but for the raw OD's it felt like it was a size too small waist wise to start off with. Strange thing is both are part of the old april batch (old patch). Always super tight in the leg department though.

Would really like some of their shits/jackets but I can't find anywhere that sells the smaller sizes online. I managed to snag a manchester polo in XS and it was just about the right fit. If they dont open that online store by april I might have to go to their flagship in france and stock up.

Hi,

I bought my first pair of dry denim three months ago - Thin Finn sz 28. I'm unhappy with them for a number of reasons, but one of the main ones is the fit. They fit me pretty snugly, as finns go, but I'm looking for more of a cheap monday-tight super skinny fit. I've been lurking here for about four months and you guys seem really friendly - I would really appreciate some input in figuring out what to buy next.

I'm very interested in April 77s. the picture snozepp posted a few pages back looks awesome, and is the kind of fit i'm going for. I'm not trying to cut my circulation off, but I definitely would like something tighter than thin finns. However, I'm looking for raw denim, of course. I've read in several places online that joey overdrives don't fade like, say, nudies or apcs do - is this true? do they fade at all?

I have an old pair of cheap mondays sz 28 that fit me great. For those of you that own Aprils, how do the two sizes of the brands compare? would the equivalent of sz28 CMs in April 77 be 28? 27? i keep reading different things.

I don't want to get another pair of nudies because i'm not interested in purchasing any more products that contain leather. But if april 77s don't fade, would new cure size 25 or 26 produce a similar fit (again, my finn size is 28)? I may just buy a pair of raw italian cheap mondays in 28, but if possible I'd like to get something of higher quality.

This turned into a pretty long post. Sorry if it's in the wrong place - I've spent quite awhile reading various forums and blogs trying to find information about april 77s and haven't been too successful, so I'm not sure what else to do. Once again, I really appreciate any help or advice any of you might have!

i have 28 TFDS and a pair of 29 colourdrive.

as a general observation, the colourdrives have skinnier legs and a looser waist than finns. when i first got my colourdrives the legs were pretty skinny and it took a couple wears for them to strech, but now they're fine, just a little looser than the legs of my TFDS. the waist on the aprils is big though (maybe like 2 sizes bigger than the same size in a nudie) , i have to wear a belt to keep them up. but i couldn't size down to make the waist fit better because the legs were way too skinny. i tried a 27 and 28 and waist was fine, but i could barely get my legs in.

I got the same size nudie as you do... the april 77 you shown above looks like thin finn dry stretch. From what i see the fits also seems to fit the same as size 28 nudie TFDS too.
I recommend you to buy DIOR MIJ raw jeans since you wanted a higher quality of denim...

For your information, i am also looking for a new jean too and am considering DIOR MIJ Black raw 19cm size 28(which = 17cm hem from my understanding of http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk/showthread.php?t=57074) but i not sure whether i will fit like my tfds size 28 anot..

***And i hope the DIOR jeans that i want would give me the fit that i want, For example:the NUDIE i am wearing or the (APRIL 77 pics u shown above).

someone who owns a pair of DIOR and also is the same size as me can verify here too.:lol:

2) does ur DIOR wet bleed??

it's not really about the stacking, i mean if a guy who usually wear his jeans low and got a big tummy buy the same size as the other guy who got flat tummy and wear his jeans high, that would bring him a problem i think. i hope i wrote it right LOL.

and yes, for dior i wear it low. about the fitting skinnier than my TFDS, i don't think there is much difference but if any, maybe because i downsize one for TFDS and downsize three for dior.

yes, around 17.5cm hem for this size. haven't saw my dior bleed, maybe because i only wear it occasionally.

it's not really about the stacking, i mean if a guy who usually wear his jeans low and got a big tummy buy the same size as the other guy who got flat tummy and wear his jeans high, that would bring him a problem i think. i hope i wrote it right LOL.

and yes, for dior i wear it low. about the fitting skinnier than my TFDS, i don't think there is much difference but if any, maybe because i downsize one for TFDS and downsize three for dior.

yes, around 17.5cm hem for this size. haven't saw my dior bleed, maybe because i only wear it occasionally.


since u are able to downsize 3 for dior which means u can also do that for ur tfds too ..haha:-P

anyway my nudie tfds wet bleed quite alot and stain my shoes i was wondering if dior raw jeans bleed and the colour is BLACK OMG!!

IMO i read from some sources that alll raw jeans will wet bleed !!!

@asdfgh: yes, raw jeans will always bleed, i just haven't seen my dior bleed yet. for TFDS, yes i have and i couldn't wipe the indigo stain on my shoes. and i believe i wouldn't be able to downsize three for TFDS. dior MIJ's sizing runs bigger than TFDS.

if u wear 29 for MIJ, u should buy 28 for MII. and MII just stretch a lot compared to MIJ.

yeah, if you want a skinny fit just basically get whatever size you can squeeze your legs into, wear them around the house a few days and they'll stretch out and you just have to wear a belt.


@ snozepp: really nice fit! are those 34" inseam?

thanks, not sure about the inseam. aren't all aprils the same? i thought they were 32" but meant to be sagged so they look long

Hey guys. This is my first time posting here and I'm new to the concept of raw denim. I just bought a pair of April 77 jeans called Joey Division Blue last week. I've washed my jeans once since I bought it. I'm just wondering if they are raw and will fade?
P.S: How should I take care of the jeans?

you should get at least 2 size down mate. me, i'm wearing 30 in nudies, and i wear 28 in a77

gadung99
16th July 2009, 12:27
yeah you can safely size down 2. recently my gf bought me a new tagged joey colourdrive. she sized down 1 for me. I usually wear 28 in levis, 27 in nudies, so she bought me a 27 as well. the waist is bigger than a 27 nudies, more like of a 28 nudies.

well my friend has a joke that sizing in april77 doesn't talk about waist-size, it's more about your thigh-size. sometimes you couldn't even squeeze your thigh although your waist is fine :-)

That's no joke, that's absolutely true. I remember trying them on last year. I could fit both my hands into the waist yet they were skin tight on my thighs :shock:

16th July 2009, 13:33
haha i remember going into a store to try on some nudies, and the sz of 77s they had were too big, so once i got into a 28 in my nudies, i decided to try on a 28 in 77s... loose around the waste, but like denim leggings... and im quite skinny!

1 size up from actual waist size doesn't sound like they will be tight, unless you have thunder thighs.

Do you lovely lads think, that i can fit a size 31 in A77 Joey, when i use 32 in normal Levi's 511. And 33 in Levi's 511 denim? Can i be in a A77 Joey denim, size 31?

I'm really confused, cause some says that they are big in the waist, and some says they are true to size?
Please, give me some quick help. Cheers mates.

Hiya! I'm new :)
Was just wondering if anyone with old patch Joey Overdrives or Colordrives could provide some measurements for waist/hem/thigh for sizes 26,27 or 28? I'm generally a 28" waist, but not overly keen on sizing down as i do not want them skin tight.
Cheers to anyone that can help! :)

Thanks for the response! :)
I often wear cheap monday jeans in 27*34 or 28*34, but decided i want a pair of skinny jeans that aren't as skin tight. I had a pair of cheap mondays in 31*34 for example, that had a skinny fit but were not skin tight in the literal sense of the term.
I know that joeys run big in the waist, and judging from this:
hmm. i got Tight original Unwashed Cheap Monday in 31x34
http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e316/roirio/cmcm1yr.jpg

and i got April77 Joey Overdrive Raw in 28x34 (old patch edition)
http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e316/roirio/a77joeyOD28fit.jpg

and they feels the same for me. i dont really know about the New Patch (april77records) edition. some said that the sizing between the oldpatch and newpatch is different.

They run considerably bigger in the waist. However, the guy is wearing a 28*34 which would have a similar fit to what i was after. However, I wanted to really find out some more accurate measurements for some old tag joeys as i'm currently deliberating whether or not to got for 27 or 28's.
Thanks again! :)

Hey guys! I have been trawling through this thread for a few days now and have been looking at some joey lightning's at Royalcheese. http://www.royalcheese.com/en/april77-joey-lightning-division-raw/2026-2-c.html

I have read on here that the size around the waist of april's is 1-2 sizes larger than TF's but I have never tried TF's on so I was wondering what the size difference between Lee's and April 77's would be! I wear a size 32-33 in Lee so would a size 32 be ok in joey's? The only size left atm is a size 33 whcih would probably be ok in Lee's but I'm not sure in joeys...I don't really want the super skinny look, just a skinny-slim look. But if I go these ones:
http://www.royalcheese.com/en/april77-joey-lightning-mass/2024-2-c.html
I could get any size I wanted for an extra Aus. $25. The style and colour isn't too much different, just a little lighter if anything, which is kinda what i want.
