I have been lusting over Freddies of Pinewood's jeans for a while, so I decided to take the plunge and get a pair. I bought the Classic Indigo and ordered a 26" waist. It's usually very difficult for me to find high waisted well fitted pants. I have a 26" waist and a 41" hip, quite the difference. I'm happy to conclude that these pants actually fit. They are a bit snug, but going up a size would have made them look silly at the waist, I think, as they are VERY high waisted pants.
The denim is wonderful; soft and dark and the pants are very well made. The one small problem I had was that they still gapped just a little (shown in the pic below). This is a problem I have a lot so it doesn't bother me a ton. When I laid the pants down the measurement taken flat was 13" at the waist and 19" at the hip, which was a nice difference I thought.
All together I would say this style of pant fit very well. I can't speak for their different styles of jeans though. I have also been wanting a pair of their dungarees, but I think I would size up to a 28" waist in those to ensure a looser fit in the hip area.
I think if you are worried about the waist to hip ratio go with your waist size at least with these style of jeans. As long as your waist to hip ratio is no bigger than a 15" ish difference you should be fine.
