    When i tried them out it felt like the selvage finns were a bit bit bigger (just an impression) but im not sure whether you should go with 26 or 27. It would be nice if someone else could confirm the sizing between the flat selvage vs the dry stretch

    Hey Guys, Am looking to get a pair of these selvage Finns, I have a pair of TFDS in size 31/32 and they are a slim fit and not too skinny. When I bought them first they were tight without being uncomfortable before they stretched out and from what I read on other threads is that if you want to end up with a skinny fit on the TF you need to downsize a couple of sizes. My true waist size is around 31 or 32 so what would you recommend for these selvage TF? Thanks in advance!

    If you like your current fit, stay with the 31. But, if you think that you really want a tight fit, by all means get a 30.

    Thanks for the replies...seeing as they are 100% cotton am I right to assume there won't be as much of a stretch as TFDS? to size down "at least 2-3 sizes" would be detrimental to my plans to have children in the future I reckon!Will go for the 30 I think and I'll get a skinny look still...want a look similar to that of @vith on page two of this thread! Cant wait to get these ordered and start breaking them in!

    If you are 32 then sizedown 2 means 29-30". Don't forget this pair is a bit bigger than TFDS and don't say 100% won't stretch that much.

    You could expect at least 1" or 2" stretch on your waist. Anyway this depend on your body as well.

    Good luck for your new jeans, 30" should be fine if you don't want too skinny fit.

    As BalistaZ says i wouldn't be to sure about that these jeans will not stretch. I have just worn mine for a couple of weeks and already noticed that the waist has stretched a bit. In the beginning it was kinda hard just to lift my foot upon a chair to tie my shoelaces:) And mine are not that "skin tight" i reckon, just a pretty slim fit! But i suppose that's a matter of how your body looks. Good luck

    Imho Finns aren´t meant to be worn this tight. BUT if these were TLJ´s I would say it´s a good fit dude... But BE AWARE of what I tell you know and BEWARE of doing splits in those pants.

    Zero stretch + tight fit = high risk of huge crotch blowout

    Furthermore keep in mind, that even if these pants are sanforized they will shrink up to 4 percent after a first wash.

    Good point! But I really like this fit, and i´ll stay with it:) so i obviously have to be aware of crotch blowout!

    Maybe i just try to wear them hard. We´ll see after year or something what happens when wash these.

    I like the fit man but i would definitely consider sagging them. This will increase the risk of crotch explotions but what the heck, just use your sewing machine skills when this occurs:) wear n tear!!

    Am i right in thinking these run a bit bigger than the TFDS moving towards a slimmer rather than skinny fit? The leg openings look a bit wider than the TFDS
