The Official Skull Jeans Thread

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.



off topic, but does anyone know what the boots are in this pic? I like that color.

I wasn't telling you what to do. I was offering a suggestion based on your quote above that you regretted tapering your jeans. Also, I wasn't suggesting that you fly to LA from Vancouver to get the jeans tapered, that would be way too expensive. Denim Doctors at Hollywood Trading Company accepts mail-ins for alterations.

You are right, what's done is done. It's more trouble than it is worth to undo what's been done to yours and then do it again differently. My advice was meant more for the next time you are considering having jeans tapered.


lol i over exaggerated in my first post, again, i don't regret it since i wear them almost everyday still. thanks for the concern/advice.

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.


Yep.

I learned this lesson the hard way. Luckily, it was a pair of APCs I tapered.

Note for those who want to taper - Tell your tailor to taper from the inside seam (inseam), so you selvage doesn't get wide and ugly as fuck.

Some tailors will charge more, but rather pay more for a perfect job.

No problem. If you don't mind my asking, how much did you pay for your taper job? I know Denim Doctors charges $45 for that, I just wanted to see if their pricing is in line with other tailors.

25 for hem and tapering. trust me, he knows what he's doing. hell he even offers chainstitching, i just didn't ask for any of that. all the denim stores recommend him over anyone else in town.

That's a good price. Most places out here cost $25 for just chainstitch hemming alone.

A presoak probably would've been a great idea.
I washed, and my creases moved quite a bit, now it looks awkward.
It wasn't even a hot wash, just a cold.
Most of you guys might be fucked if you didn't presoak.

they're looking pretty good. i only ride in mine now so they've been getting a lot of wear. recently repaired the crotch blowout

I didn't have them both at the same time, so I have to go off of memory, but I think the new denim is smoother.
Dec 18, 2010 @ 07:55
how about color and fading wise? i really like the old denim and don't want to get the new ones and end up not being happy with em

For fades, I couldn't say. I ended up selling my old denim Skulls before I ever had a chance to wear them, and I haven't gotten around to wearing my new denim Skulls yet.

The raw color looks about the same between the two, at least from what I can remember of my old denim Skulls.

Talked to Gordon thursday, concerning kiya's post before about them possibly ending production.

Fab Four will continue producing the 5010’s and we do have plans to restock them once the new production commences which will possibly start around the end of Feb or so, just not sure exact date at this point. In the meantime they’ve released a new style made of the same 5010 6x6 denim with a slight change to the fit and details. We’ve ordered these as well and expect them to arrive around the end of this month or early-mid Jan.

Yeah, I had heard that Skull was going under, but it looks like they will at least be around long enough to make that new Zero model.

My TTS waist is 31.5.

I'm thinking of buying a used pair of 5010xx's. They're sz. 30, been worn for a year. Have they stretched out enough to fit me comfortably?

Most likely after a wash they could be too tight for you.. I bought true to size myself when I got mine and they were really tight at first, so personally I don't recommend sizing down. But to each his own I guess..

I think they fit different people differently. I bought TTS on my first pair of Skulls, and they were loose in the waist. I sized down 1 on my second pair, and they fit a lot better.

Pic for the dude up there.
I'm a 31 true, I sized down to a 30.
They stretch quite a bit, you'll be fine.
Dec 31, 2010 @ 21:15
Ah thanks, that clears it up a bit. Can you sag them comfortably?
