A measurements comparison of raw denim 3Sixteen ST-100X slim vs Williamsburg Hope Street slim tapered jeans
Looking at the measurement charts it is clear to see these are two very different jeans. The waist of the Hope Street is larger than other Williamsburg styles of the same size because of a straighter line from hips to waist. Hope Street is great for guys with smaller legs, allowing them to size down for a very slim fit and for guys with wide hips.
Between the ST-100X and Hope Street, the spec at the seat is close, but there are big differences at the rise, knee and leg opening. All measurements are a lot smaller on the Williamsburg jean, with the waist and thigh smaller on the 3Sixteen jean. The ST-100X has a 36" inseam which us great for taller guys. The Hope Street’s standard inseam is 33 ½ inches on a size-30 and 34 ½ inches on size-32 and higher waist sizes. We also offer extra-long 38 inch inseams for taller men.
Measurements are taken from actual production samples. Our recorded specs may differ slightly from jean to jean, so we average and take into consideration the targeted measurements. When comparing sizing, please note, we use total circumference measurements in our fit charts. Others may use 1/2-circumference.
