is narrowing the leg opening of jeans a common practice among tailors or is it even possible? i want the opening on my skulls to be a bit smaller since they're pretty baggy for my narrow feet and shoes i wear.

and also, is there a term for "narrowing the leg opening?"

So, hopefully i will receive my skulls in a day or two. Is there any steps I should take before I wear them? I heard that I should soak them? is it necessary and will my combs/whiskers shift dramatically if I soak/wash for the first time later?

thanks guys!

why soak...
isn't it sanforized?
Dec 01, 2009 @ 19:56
Some ppl like to soak anyways..

They still shrink but very little
Dec 02, 2009 @ 10:12
yeah, BiG even sells them one wash

Sanforized and treated, but less so than other sanforized jeans. Thats why they start at +1 of tagged waist size and why there's a one wash version. I would give skull a pre-soak especially because they're extremely stiff when raw.

Which skulls Seek3r?!
Dec 02, 2009 @ 20:38
SsS

it depends on the person I myself enjoyed the super stiffness but now there softer from regular wear
I actually feel like cold soaking them to get them super stiff again lol

I also got skulls in last night. 5010xx 6x6 size 34. Originally I ordered 32s but way too small. So I went up 2 sizes and they fit nicely now. I didn't soak, just wore them. Kind of stiff but I like it.
Dec 03, 2009 @ 15:24
^i'd soak to get the shrinkage out of the way.

Cold soak will stiffen them just for a regular wear or so. It will decrease the tightness of the warp, thus making the jeans more soft with wear. I said that I would soak them before wearing them.

Hey guys, so heres my fit pics! Ignore the UGG's on the side they are my sisters haha

Dec 05, 2009 @ 15:49

Dec 05, 2009 @ 15:50

Dec 05, 2009 @ 18:46
I think my pair would be between -1 and tts! glad my fit is ok! hopefully itll fade out really nice
Dec 05, 2009 @ 19:10
anybody know the most accurate leg opening for the black 5010xx? the measurements on BiG and SF are completely different (for a 29)
Dec 05, 2009 @ 19:34
^ i personally think self edge measurements are bit more accurate. maybe someone with the same size could confirm though.

i just got an indigo pair in size 29 [too small for me]


i measured them though..i dunno if that helps or not

skull 29
waist 15.5
f rise 10
b rise 13
inseam 37.5
thigh 11
knee 7.75
hem 7.25
Dec 06, 2009 @ 21:28
^^^
Black 5010's

run smaller

soo that doesnt help at all, im pretty sure

Also I think BiG's measurements are more accurate
I compared my 28 indigo skulls and BiG was closer than Selfedge for mine

Every pair is different tho

Inital Soak???
Hey i just bought a pair of 5507 and was wondering what the general consensus was for giving a hot soak?
Right now, the stacks are bit sloppy and i'm not sure if they'll settle
