hi,
I'm goin to get my first japanese jeans 5010xx 6x6
I have some questions
Do skull jeans stretch like apc?
My apc ns stretch from W29 to W31 after 2 months.
My thigh is about 20" & waist is about 31" . I'm afraid they can't fit me.
So, what size should I buy
thanks

you know that you were supposed to be shrink to fit jeans?


skulls are sanforized so it wouldnt have mattered that much had he not soaked them.

When are the indigo 5010s going to be restocked? I've been looking at fit pics of them and I'm leaning towards those over flatheads now....

No, almost all Skull jeans are 37" long.. We can chainstitch hem them to whatever length you'd like though at Self Edge and it won't change the cut at ALL if you get the 5010 and will barely change it if you're getting the 5507.
You can choose your length after you've added the jean to your shopping cart: http://www.selfedge.com/shop

I had decided to buy Imperial Dukes but looking at the pics of your Skull 5010XX 6x6 pics I started wondering that which ones would be better. It's a tough question of course but considering fading properties and stretching, which would be better?

Also, I was just in a store trying on Slim Jims for reference and 31" waist felt good, a bit tight but they would anyhow stretch a bit.. So if I was to buy the 5010xx Skulls, should I go with 31" as well?

Please help me quick so that I can order asap!blushing

^^ I tried on the dukes and skulls 5507xx at selfedge, I went with the skulls which are way better imo, plus I wasn't really feeling the stitching on the back pockets of the dukes. Also go true to size and don't size down so if you wear a 31 it should be fine.

anyone ever put a significant wear on the black 5010xx's? i like the fit but i kinda don't want to buy another pair of indigo right now (unless some sale comes up) since i'm working on some LVC's right now.

Ordered the 5010xx 6x6's from Selfedge today, went with 32" cause 31" was sold out. I checked this morning and still thought whether to buy or not. Thought too long and the 31" were gone.smh

Thinking about it, the 32" might actually still be a better fit. If they turn out to be too loose, I'll just soak them. Cant wait to get em!


btw, does Selfedge use Fedex for international shipments as well?

They will fade well of course but will take much, much longer.

Yea go true to size for 5010, self edge advises you not to size down. I remember kiya saying that O/W fucks up the denim when it gets washed or something thats why s.e sells raw version
