is the eternal 811 a vintage cut jean/repro jean(1947,1966)? or is it just a modern cut not based off of anything?

I was looking at Eternals on BiG's website & I was wondering.. for the RAW they are basically the same as the one-wash except they haven't been washed, correct?

Also, how much do you size down on the raws? & how much do you size down on the one-wash?

I am really debating between the one-wash & the raws.. the one wash's have the exact measurements I want but I really want the raws.. if I was the raws will they basically go down to the same measurements as the one-wash?


Thanks!

Yea basically Pure, I sized one down on O/W and if I had a chance to cop raws it'd be one down as well. Anyways they both great jeans. Pref. I'd rather cop the raws but I only had the choice to get the O/W for $110 shipped so what the hell

Just wanted to say that the census for this jean isn't to size down, its just a preference so if your looking to buy a pair look for the option of going true to size or even sizing up one.

The one-wash have gone through a factory wash which is much stronger than a typical household wash, but the raw's should be close enough post initial wash, initial soak isn't going to be enough it you really want to shrink these.

The inseam shrinks a lot, but having the length feels really good (imo), mine are sitting at about 36.5 - 37", after my first wash I wouldn't be surprised for them to shrink to 35

^ He's right. My first soak took these to about a 36.5" inseam. After my first wash I'd say they shrunk down to about a 35"-35.5" inseam. Sizing down 1 on raws is the same thing as sizing down 1 on O/W, because after the first wash in the raws, it will shrink to the same length as sized down 1 O/W's. If that doesn't make sense then say so and I'll re-explain. I'd go with the raws if I were you, but I must warn you, these are incredibly stiff and uncomfortable after that initial soak/wash.

Why size down on the 811 when you can purchase the 883, eternal's newer, slimmer, more tapered mode?

It's a totally different kind of cut. The 883s are fucking sexy though, I'd maybe cop those if I decide to do another pair of Eternals next year, although I doubt I will. I wish the 883s had a low rise so that it wouldn't look dumb if they were sagged.

^ I think the 811 is a better fit personally. 883's look a little too skinny bc the entire upper block of the jeans are the same as 811s, and then the middle and bottom blocks are skinnier, it looks a little weird, but still they're nice as fuck. Eternals are great denim, you really can't go wrong with any cut.

See, it looks too slim, sort of awkward. I guess if you were REALLY tight clothes, but the inseam + cut doesn't look to flattering, and unless you have small feet, you're shoes will look like clown shores, sort of like how his do.
