    This topic is used to discuss the Jeans measure database-thread and how it could be improved or modified to serve it's purpose better. So if you feel the need to talk about that thread - good or bad - this is the place.

    That would be great! The whole point of this is to get a huge variety of reference-sizes in one place for people who are ordering a pair of jeans from a new manufacturer.

    Fantastic idea! I'll contribute measurements for my Nudies this week sometime (just ordered a pair of Finns to add to my Starcys).

    Actually forgot to add, if people are going to post up jeans be sure to add pre and post soak measurements well for ones that apply. Cause jeans can shrink very minimally or a lot. Also, let us know if you sized down went TTS, or sized up one etc...

    UPDATE

    - Corrected some typos
    - Added a rule of one pair/reply to help search accuracy and listing.
    - Added a listing section of already measured jeans to the 1st post with hyperlinks. I will be adding new models to this list as they are posted, but anyone with rights to edit my posts (moderators/aadmins), feel free to update this list with my authorization. Use the following form to get the list looking uniform.

    Make
    <Model name/number> <wash> <size (in the form of WW/LL)><-- the whole text hyperlinked to the postnumber of the measured pair.

    - Added directions to notify whether unsanforized jeans are measured pre- or post-soak or both.

    - If I understood your suggestion correctly, I don't see why this info would be needed since the purpose of the database is to show the actual measurements of garments - not how they were supposed to measure. Meaning, the thread would be clogged if people would start telling how much they sized up/down and which model they down-/upsized from.

    Great idea Jaypee. Having a global sizing database would be awesome.

    Another great idea. Let's get going with Jaypee's thread and I will start looking into if we can enable a database here where everyone can contribue.

    Thanks all!

    I made the measurement thread a sticky since I'm sure it will become very popular and useful.
