I had the same problem with Joe's. I wear a 26 in SFAM, Miss Sixty, D&G and Versace Jeans. I had come to believe that I was just a universal 26. I was SO excited to find a pair of Joe's at Marshall's in a 26 for $30. Now I need to drop 10 pounds if I want to wear since I can barely pull them on - never mind button them. Just when I thought waste-based sizes were more reliable too!It also depends on the cut of the particular style. In most brands and styles I wear either a 28 or a 29 (I usually take an 8 or occasionally a 6 in American sizes) but I tried on a pair of Joes the other day and the 30 was too tight! And I have an old pair of Parasuco 27's that fit fine. Sizing is so weird and non-standard.
I wear a 24 in regular Seven (25 in A pockets) and 24 in COH, but my latest Goldsign (Frontier style) was snug even in 25. They run a little smaller than Seven, COH, AG, True Religion.I wear a joes 27, AG in 28 and paige...any idea how Goldsign runs? I think its the same designer that makes AG. Should I get 27?28 Help!
