you're going to just need to try them on. some of them measure 2"s bigger in the waist raw and some measure tagged size while raw. depends how recently the ones you buy were made. mine were from the most current batch and they measured tagged size raw. theyre pretty tight on my waist as i was expecting them to measure 2"s bigger like all the previous batches had.

well I can't try them on, cuz my sister is buying them for me, I told her to get a 34 , maybe I should say 35?

dont get a 35..they should measure same as tagged size states..i honestly suggest getting your true size..yes they will shrink but they will stretch back to the tagged size with a couple wears.

I'm planning to buying these when I hit up TKO end of the year, just wondering when I try them on, am I suppose to be choosing a pair that is takes a while to get all the buttons done? or one that is just right? (taking into post-soak considerations)

skulls are much slimmer, but samurai quality is far superior. i rather get samurai 710 over skulls any day if i could afford them.

i think if you can afford skulls,
you can wait out another paycheck to get sammies.
i think even if you could afford apc.
its just a matter of patience.

I was gonna get some s5000 model and taper the leg or even get the tailored to a slimmer straight leg but now I think the 710 has solved that problem for me, lol. Now it's a matter of saving up for a pair.

right now im debating between 0500s and 5000s for sams. I've seen so many terrible 710 fits lately that it turned me off from them (save 12ape and someone else)


5000's are kindof wide in the leg, so unless you're down to send them off for a taper i'd go with the 0500's. my fav out of the 2

I got mine in today and I sized up 2 but they are huge pre-soak. I cant decide if I should send them back and get 31(which wuold be sizing up 1) or if I should just keep then and soak them. Would there be a dramatic change if I were to soak them? I'm not sure how much I should expect them to shrink if I boil soak them




Thanks

edit: I am looking for a fit like the one 12ape has on his

i think you should have only sized up 1 and then soaked to get 12ape's fit...

but boil and see what happens

eh if you soak you cant return them.. i think youd be better off returning them and then if those get to tight after post soak you can easily just wear em for 2 weeks or so and the waist should stretch out my then

do you guys think i should get the 0500's in size 34(true waist) or the 710's in a 36. Other than the waist the overall measurements of the jeans are exactly the same but i can't decide which to get. Any advice from you guys?
