the 5507s or the 5010s?
December 04, 2010 @ 20:42:59
If you asked me, I'd say TTS 5010 is more like 511.
Depends how you size and which cut.

TTS

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

Ayo real talk, the crispyness of skulls is killing me. I'm gonna do a cold soak or wash soon to get rid of the starch.
December 05, 2010 @ 09:28:33
it helps to set up some creases tho.
December 06, 2010 @ 13:45:13
anyone have fit pics of the 5507s?

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.
December 06, 2010 @ 18:05:24
5'9 and I hemmed about 2 inches off. I think it looks perfect now plus they'll be
good summer jeans to pinroll in the future..

i hemmed 2 inches off the inseam and tapered about 1 inch on the jeans too

but that was before i started to actually wear them



side view pic from couple weeks ago ( about 5 months in now? )

front is pretty standard.. similar to airfred's
December 09, 2010 @ 00:53:14
nice jeans wurldwide. Are they (were they) originally 5010xx? I'm also in the greater vancouver area and may I ask where you got them taper since I plan to do that on my pair as well (taper to follow Naked Famous skinny guy fit)
December 09, 2010 @ 04:12:36
I got a pair of 5507, I'll try to take fit pic later.

Btw, I'm looking for a pair of 5010 in Size 30, so if you're considering selling yours....

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.
December 09, 2010 @ 19:59:52
wurldwide - info on shoes?
December 09, 2010 @ 23:24:42

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.
December 10, 2010 @ 00:04:20
Yo guys, 5'9/10 155 athletic build true waist 31 going true on a older red tab 5507x, good idea?

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.

hemmed about 2 in. Lovin the fit now. sorry for all the pictures...
