If you asked me, I'd say TTS 5010 is more like 511.
Depends how you size and which cut.

3 models sold in the US come in 6x6, the 5000, 5507, and the 5010. Which one are you asking about?

I have a pair but haven't had a chance to do fit pics. I'll try to do some if I get a chance. In the meantime, here is a fit pic of those jeans from the Self Edge website.

selfedge took horrible fit pictures for skull jeans. The 5010 picture doesn't even look like the 5010 jean. Of course they've had the pictures for a couple years and the jean has changed since then.

thanks for the tip wurldwide.
I'm already nearing six months but I decided to go just a little bit longer until a soak/wash.

@airfred, how tall and how much you chop off?
Also thinking about getting a hem after a few washes, stacks are nice but they get annoying.

yeah they are/were 5010xx, but they were the earlier runs... so if you buy them now the sizing is different according to BiG, they run bigger now apparently.

i had mine tailored at albert's tailoring on robson and granville.

i actually regret tapering mine, it made the selvedge wide and rather ugly... so it loses some points in that regard. but atleast he knows better than to cut the selvedge off (without me telling him not to) like most places would do.

There are places, such as the Denim Doctors at the Hollywood Trading Company, that taper by altering the inseam rather than the outseam. That way, the selvage isn't touched at all.

you realize we're in the metro vancouver region right? lol not about to fly/ship my jeans to LA to get it tapered

i'm sure albert could've done the same if you ask him to alter it through the outseam, he's a pretty good tailor

If I've already spent close to $300 on a pair of jeans, I'd rather spend a little extra to have someone tailor it exactly the way I want it than to pay someone to do it a different way and then regret it afterwards, like you mentioned you did.

Whoever Albert is, he would have had to tailor through the inseam, not the outseam, to leave the selvage untouched. If you taper on the outseam, you have to either make the selvage line wider or remove part of it.

again, i have no regrets of tapering the jeans the way it was done. if it's done then it's done

i'm not gonna QQ over it nor is there a need to. try and read exactly what i said in my last post before you make another remark. i'm not planning to repeat myself.

and also, just fyi. a ticket to LA from Vancouver is more expensive than buying a new pair of Skulls and altering them again. food for thought

so you do your thing and i'll do mine. i dgaf

im with you wurldwide, your jeans do whatever the hell you want with them.
Real talk, nobody says "zoomggg selvedge denimzz youhs boss".
Reality is very few people know what it is and even less people actually care.
