I recieved some Freddies of Pinewood last week. I ordered the 1950's Utility Jeans and the Dungaree Dolls. My waist is 26 and my hips are 34. I ordered the 26 waist. They fit fine. A little bit loose, but not loose enough to go down a size. Plus they are brand new, I think they may shrink after a few washes. The quality is great but I have found a small issue with my utility jeans and I plan on contacting Freddies of Pinewood. It may be a pattern issue(?). The button on the waistband, is perhaps 5/8" towards center front. This means the waistband pulls out/open, I get diagonal wrinkles from hip to center front and my seams on the left side all curve sharply near the waistband. It's so easy to fix; I just need to re-sew the button so the waistband is tighter. But I paid 45 BP. In any case, I will let them know.
