How do Flathead Inazuma’s with the red arc fit compared to PBJ xx-005?

28 in FH to a 31 in PBJ. my waist is probably a true 29/30.

Cross post. Thanks.

Does unsanforized denim stretch after the pre-soak? I have been eyeing some sg-2105's and I wanted to know if after the first shrink soak I should expect more stretching.

Dam good luck finding some for sale. From what I remember they(Flats) are a hair slimmer in the thigh down to the leg opening.

Yes yes denim all stretches with wear. I've never had SGs Kiya would surely know but I wouldn't size down expecting to stretch them out if that's what you're thinking.

I've worn both before, and I would say that the Inazumas fit fairly similarly to the XX-005s. However, the PBJs run a little bit big and stretch a lot. If you wear Inazumas in a 28 and your actual waist measurement is 29", a size 31 PBJ is going to be way too big on you.

Yeah, all unsanforized denim will stretch with wear after soaking. Different denims stretch different amounts, though. According to Self Edge's website, the 2105 denim will stretch up to an inch in the waist with wear.

Well I already have PBJs is what I'm sayin. I have them in a size 31. Would they fit similar to the FH Inazuma's in size 28?

If you wear the PBJs in a size 31, the size 28 Inazumas will be way too small for you.

What brand would you guys recommend for someone looking for a ~150$ budget raw denim brand? Best bang for my buck. I only know APC. If it keeps its indigo well that would be nice.

Denim Doctors does a good job of tapering jeans. Not sure if they can do satin-lined, but I don't see why not.

In that price range, Naked & Famous is probably the most popular raw denim brand along with APC. 3sixteen is also a good raw denim brand in the same price range as APC.

Does anyone know of some midtier slubby denim?

Naked & Famous Japan Heritage model comes to mind. I think Leftfield also has a slubby model.

Those are high tier in terms of price, though. If we are talking high tier, there are many more examples, such as Samurai, PBJ, Oni, Strike Gold, a couple of the IH models, etc.

Do Samurai s5000vx fit similar to PBJ 005? They're lot 11 I believe.

I thought I was a 36 but when I got my 34 APC's it fits true. I like the fit of it, I just need a slight taper and of course a hem. Thigh it fits a inch of two off from being skinny, but knee down its really baggy so im fixing a taper.

Can I still get good fades or should I return it and get an actual size down for fades?

APC runs about 2 sizes big, so if an APC 34 fits you, you probably are a true 36.

I think you'll get good fades on the 34, but if you want to size down 1 more, that will probably work too as long as you are OK with a tighter fit.

I have a size 25 in APC Petite Standard (sized down 2), and it fits great.
Which style of Imperials should I get (I have really skinny legs, so skinny jeans are good), and what waist size should I order?

When people refer to &quot;worn unwashed for 5 months&quot;, do you literally mean that they were worn everyday? (sorry for the stupid question)
November 14, 2011 @ 20:56:19
Not necessarily, could mean they wore them off work/weekends for 5 months.

Thanks for the clarification.

a.p.c or baldwin?
November 15, 2011 @ 06:01:35
Depends on what qualities you like in denim. With APC you get a nice clean jean that you can wear for a good bit and with Baldwin you get a nice jean with nifty detailing, some interesting cuts and the washes are not so bad.

Anyone got any black denim suggestions? Was looking at the black APC's on RSVP, but not sure what they really look like in person. Maybe considering Naked &amp; Famous too...


What is your price range? Blue in Green just got the Samurai Black Shadows in stock. They are the 710 cut (slim, tapered) in slubby 17 oz. denim. Those would likely be my first choice if I were to buy a pair of black jeans right now. They are not cheap, though.

If the price is not an issue, I would also suggest looking at any overdyed Iron Heart jean. Those are all outstanding black jeans.
November 17, 2011 @ 00:51:13
thanks.

does anyone have fit pics or evo of a pair of baldwins?
November 23, 2011 @ 18:42:46
Pretty straight forward:

I'm unsure which pair I should get after my nudie grim tims (they were great for the start but now I'm looking for something &quot;better&quot;)

Pure Blue Japan or Naked &amp; Famous.

It seems that PBJ has the better denim but I, somehow, are also into the whole N&amp;F thing.
give me your opinion please ;)
