^I'd say go down one. TTS is gonna be a pretty full fit. I've seen a lot of nice fits that are sized down one. Make sure you get the right hem length

Yo whatchu guys think, 5'9/10 155 31 true waist, go down 1 on a 634s?


You can either go TTS or size down 1 with the 634S. TTS is more of a regular fit, sizing down 1 is a slimmer, tighter fit.

k guys, after 2 times of bad sizing, i will attempt to order a BRAND NEW pair of 301s. whenever selfedge restocks. i am probably gonna go size down 1 on them. and hem them to a 34 or something.

unless information on the 666 fit comes by blushing

666 is supposed to be a little bit slimmer than the 301.

i heard that it is, but i also heard that it's really slim, so i don't know yet. kiya said they might come around late december or early january. blushing

The ONLY thing that bothers me about the 301, is the non selvage outer seam. I don't understand how this is possible.. breaks my heart.

u mean hem? i used to wear apc ps until i got sam 5000's and dukes and im definitely enjoying having a wider hem, more comfort, only downside is that depending on the inseam drag can be a bitch but that can all be fixed with a cuff or two

The fried is box; the box is fried.

Thought about doing this myself. Problem is I don't know how long I'd be able to go without saying fuck it and just wearing the IHs...

Forreal haha, come up with some bullshit excuse like, "awe fuck its cold, gotta bust out that 21 oz" I heard the Beatle Busters got like the same ish measurements, but slimmer + more of a taper, but lets see the price, if its sub 350 i may consider but if its over, i think ill just the 634s ahha.

As for the hem, shit doesnt bother you on stacks like vans and shit?

Beatle Busters are out now, they retail for $400 shipped.

I just saw em on IHs website. So I was thinking, since I could order the 634s from Rakuten, essentially couldn't I just get a proper tailor to taper them, and I would almost have them, like measurement wise?
Dec 08, 2010 @ 13:30
i bought my 301s at a size 31. over the past year i lost a significant amount of weight and im about a size 28 now, they're too big and i only wore them for about a month. should i try altering them or should i just sell them?
Dec 08, 2010 @ 14:07
don't self-edge have a repairs service? maybe try contacting them.

I don't think you have the hip measurements of the two jeans, though, and I hear that the BB is tighter in the hips than the 634S is. Besides, by the time you buy from Rakuten and pay for the jeans, Japan's excise tax, international shipping, possible customs fees if the Rakuten store isn't shipping by EMS, and the tailoring fees, plus take a chance on the tailor screwing up, you might as well have just bought the BBs outright.

I think Kiya has posted before that Self Edge can tailor them to fit you and still have them look good afterwards.
Dec 08, 2010 @ 17:27
^ As far as I know, SelfEdge just does hemming and repairs (no tapering, etc.).

with my sams i have like a 35-36 inseam so i don't really have heal drag, im bout 6'3, and i wouldn't consider the small amount of stacks i have sloppy; but on my imps, 38 inseam, it can be a bit of a bitch, stacks are fine since it's a slimmer cut and longer but having a 8.5 hem it does drag, hems are ripped but dgaf

Aite guys, I was lurkin' Sufu and according to Beatle, she said that if I could fit a 30 in Eternal, I could do a Iron Heart in 29. The problem is my waist is 30.5. You think shit should be that much of a problem? Cut is 634s btw.
Dec 11, 2010 @ 13:24
i think youd be good wit that size but how bout the thigh measurements, it is more than an inch smaller than the eternals

I wear a 34 in Eternal and a 33 in IH, so I'd imagine it'd work fine.
