it might depend if you get grifters sanforized or stf
could i also recommend the slackers?
September 26, 2009 @ 14:06:32
So I guess I should get the Grifters sanforized?
Idk what it is, if it's 'cause he's not sagging 'cause his ass looks really weird.

But word, that's a fit I want golden. I'm 5'7...I think 130 pounds though so idk if I'm too skinny to achieve a fit like that with Slackers.
September 26, 2009 @ 14:29:38
i think its safer to ask someone who owns both, like SFCA or tomoffin, as i do not own either
September 26, 2009 @ 14:59:24
I have the unsanforized grifters and sized up one from true size and if u wear bulkier shoes, I'd go with the skulls.
September 26, 2009 @ 15:59:06
Well I wear from Vans to Clarks Desert Boots/Wallabees and some Jordans like 1's, 3's and 4's.
September 26, 2009 @ 16:27:57
i really don't think grifters will look well with bigger shoes

these are someones skulls that look fine with these shoes
September 26, 2009 @ 16:34:03
You've sold me golden, I'm getting Skulls.
Thanks a lot for the helpsmokeyface
September 26, 2009 @ 17:38:04
yea no problem blushing

Whattup y'all...I'm approaching the year-mark on my 5010xx indigos. They're looking terrific, but I'm constantly hassled w/ having to take them to the alteration joint to have one thing or another re-stitched. Aside from that though, I'm looking to copp some black denim. Are the 5010's in black any good? Anyone have any experiences/pics, etc...?

September 26, 2009 @ 18:32:59
They're very nice. More of a charcoal grey than a true or overdyed black. Really hard to fade.
September 26, 2009 @ 19:52:05
its hard to fade because:
hank dyed, which is dyed to the core
September 28, 2009 @ 15:19:05
Goldengoose, who's Skull's are those?

Anyway, I'm deciding on the Warehouse Dubbleworks 660 or the Skull 5010xx. I'm upgrading from my 31 NC's which stretched to about a 32.5/33 but the leg's and hem are still perfect for my liking. But I'm a true 30 waist. If I want a slim fit from Skull 5010xx, would it safe for me to get a 29 and stretch to a 31 after wear.

September 28, 2009 @ 15:24:49
No, go true to size on the skulls in relatively smaller sizes. Get a 30. In the 600, get a 28, or 29 - depends on whether your waist is actually 30 or no. If you got sz.31 new cures, I'm almost sure its bigger.
September 29, 2009 @ 01:41:02
i sz.ed down 2 on some 5010 blacks to 28
its pretty tight right now on the thigh
should i keep them and hope they stretch a half inch or more oor naw
i'll post some pics later on
ima wear them to school and see if they stretch out a little

Why would you size down 2 on skull jeans? Don 't wear them to 'school', return them and size up at least 1.

o shit
someone on this thread told me he sz.ed down 2
well i guess im the first person to do 2 down
well what do u guys think
cause i have some faith they will stretch out a little bit more on the waist and thighs
September 29, 2009 @ 21:30:42
well, since they're so tight they will stretch, but i don't think alot
and are you sure you know ur true waist?
those look like they're sized down 1
September 29, 2009 @ 21:32:05
^ yeah, shouldn't down 2 be like skin tight
September 29, 2009 @ 21:37:11

They're pretty wack, quality isn't as up to par a I'd thought.
September 29, 2009 @ 23:35:02
Should of done your homework...


September 29, 2009 @ 23:46:49
Na, I'm already done. I had to redo my alfabets.
September 30, 2009 @ 00:06:12
jimmy, are they on par with samurais?
September 30, 2009 @ 13:10:38
naw. the quality is aight, but compared to my 710's no.

Fading is quick though. noticed whiskers and rivets after like 2 weeks. and pocket stitching blowing out in my ass cuz i hxc buttfuck.
September 30, 2009 @ 19:57:45
The fading's at a decent pace imo. But, I didn't rock 'em everyday so they might've faded faster if I had OD'd on wearing them. One thing I'll say is, the craftsmanship is not that good on Skulls. I remember some time ago Technique mentioned something about the Fabfour dudes not super-enforcing all the stitching and stuff to promote this do-it-yourself sort of approach to aging denim. After my 5010 experiences, it seems like that would be a copeout for not making them up to the standard implied by their pricetag.

I've already had the pockets re-stitched once, and theyre starting to come apart again. Started developing an upper-thigh rip that I had to get stitched, and other misc shit. I've had my APC NC's for almost 2 years and never had to fix anything, aside from one hole that developed under the crotch area but that's been fixed.

I still love em though. They're approaching 1-year mark, so I've developed an attachment. lolz

I'm thinking about getting the 5507, but then i noticed that there's a model called 5507xx. So i was wondering what's the difference between the two, and if its worth it to pay an extra $60.
