The Regular Taper 14oz Cone Mills Selvage

BSJ105

We've been listening to some solid feedback from you denim heads over the last twelve months about the ultimate taper jean and what it should fit like. "Not too slim in the hips!", "Slightly more room in the upper thigh!", "Can you make the leg more tapered?", "Keep the bottom opening narrow but not tight" - all these ingredients were taken into consideration and combined into our newest fit - The Regular Taper. This fit will satisfy those wanting the comfort of a regular fitting top block with room in the waist, low hip and thigh combo'd with a slightly more radical taper from the knee down to the ankle. The tighter bottom opening will allow the inseam to sit slightly higher on the foot than our Slim Straights which is clearly a win for those who have a solid shoe/boot/sneaker game.

    HOW TO MEASURE YOUR JEANS/SIZING CHART

    How to correctly measure your jeans

    Waist Measure:

    Lay the jeans on a flat surface. Flatten the waistband by pressing out any wrinkles or kinks with your hands. Pull the front waistband up parallel with the back waistband and measure across the top from edge to edge. This edge to edge measurement will give you a half measure which is what we have listed below in our sizing chart. A full measure can be obtained by doubling the flat measurement number for e.g. 16.75 inches x 2 = 33.5 inches.

    Measuring your selvedge denim jeans

    Low Hip:

    This is an important point of measure for low hips and seat. Flatten down the hips so no wrinkle or kinks remain.

    Next, measure 6 inches down from the bottom of the waistband at the side seam. Mark with your finger or light colored pencil.

    Measure at a slight downward angle just below the J stitch and then across the opposite side going up at the same slight angle. A picture is worth a thousand words so here it is.

    Thigh:

    Most folks get this wrong, thats ok this is how you get the correct measure. Measure one inch down from the midpoint between the double needle stitch of the front rise. Mark with your finger or light colored pencil.

    Measure across at a slightly upward angle following the natural pitch of the thigh panel.

    INSEAM:

    Measure from the same midpoint of the double needle at the top where the thigh and crotch meet. Walk the tape measure down the contour of the inseam along the stitch to the edge of the hem. 

    BRAVE STAR SIZING CHART:

    The comparison to LEVI'S fit styles is merely a reference point for those unfamiliar with how our jeans fit since there is no industry sizing standard. Most people have at some point in their lives owned a pair of LEVI'S and is the greatest common fit denominator when trying to gauge jean sizing. Our pattern blocks are unique to Brave Star and have been developed and fine tuned over the years with our head pattern maker and could feel completely different on your body in comparison to a pair of LEVI'S due to fabric weight & composition. One other factor to keep in mind is that the single pair of LEVI'S that we purchased here in Los Angeles to measure and feature on our size chart is not necessarily indicative of how that same style of LEVI'S fits on you when you purchased it since we have found quite a large variance in their sizing depending on where the jean was manufactured, the weight of the fabric and the wash applied to the jean.                                        

    Please allow for a +/- 1/4" tolerance (flat measure) in the waistband vs listed spec.

    All measurements are flat measurements. For full measure double the number listed, for eg size 32 waist = 17.25 inches flat x 2 = 34.5 all the way around.

    PLEASE NOTE: WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU MEASURE YOUR ACTUAL WAIST (MEASURED APPROXIMATELY 4 INCHES BELOW YOUR NAVEL) AND PURCHASE A WAISTBAND MEASUREMENT 1" LESS THAN YOUR ACTUAL WAIST.

    FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE FIT PICS ON THE WEBSITE THE FIT MODELS ACTUAL WAIST MEASURES 34.5 INCHES AND WEARS A SIZE 31 (33.5 INCHES) IN BRAVE STAR.
