That's what I'm talking about with the crotch ma dude. It bulges and hugs my nuts SO bad. And looks awkward with my fits. I'm hitting 1 year on these and then going out and copping a new pair of jeans right away. Probably some Skull 5010xx's or just go simple and cop some APC NS. Last pair of mid/high rise denim I ever cop.


Isn't the 811 rise similiar to 5010xx's?

btw, dope shot technique smokeyface
Sep 15, 2010 @ 19:37
no the rise on the 811 is more than an inch longer back & front.
Sep 15, 2010 @ 20:34
oh yeah, your right.
Must've read the charts wrong.

still, wouldn't it be worse switching to skulls?
Sep 15, 2010 @ 21:08
My Skull's rise oddly felt roomier in the crotch with the lower rise than some of my higher rise jawnz. They're just cut really well.

maybe they are a bit uncomfortable cause yah sized down? out of the past stuff i've worn, these jeans have been the most comfortable to break in

anyways, im starting to get a little electric blue near the crotch area, i might be in for a quick crotch blow out if i dont find someway to shrink my penis smh
Sep 16, 2010 @ 19:11
But if you shrink your penis more, you will go from 2 in. to 1 in.

Just soaked my pair, and the water was literally piss yellow with all the grime.



I'm going to post an update soon. I think these are gonna start losing major indigo very very soon, everything is starting to break through. These are very stubborn to fade.
Sep 20, 2010 @ 22:28
a little different... But if anyone knows where i can get these in a 30-31 let me know!







nice....sike >smh

Wow what the fuck lol, I feel like soaking mine soon too. They small pretty bad when they get wet i.e. sweat.
Sep 20, 2010 @ 22:48
^ A soak was great for these. Even though I didn't put in any soap or anything, they feel 100 time cleaner.
Sep 21, 2010 @ 02:35
Haha, will definitely consider soaking soon then haha.
Sep 21, 2010 @ 10:04
lol damn son that bucket is NASTY! good shit though i guess haha keep up the progress

hello to everybody

I think Eternal 811 is going to be the first japanese jeans I order.

Can I take the one wash measurement chart as a reference to sizing? I mean, is this how the non-wash model is going to measure after the soak/wash? or is going to be different.

How much do they stretch with wear (the nonwash) in the waist, tight and rise?

is the rise in jeans something that stretchs with use or is only the tight and waist?


thanks a lot for your help and kind regards

The raw models should shrink up to the same measurements as the one wash versions with the same tagged size. Eternals don't stretch too much but you'd be able to get a good 1"-1.5" inches of stretch at the least. The rise shouldn't stretch much at all. Like you mentioned notable stretch would mostly occur in the waist/upper thigh/seat areas.

So that would be 1-1.5 at lest at the waist? it could even get to two inches? I guess a lot in any case, maybe I have to size down, I am ok with 31.5 inches waist after the stetching. What about the stretching in the tight and seat?

thanks a lot for your help

I'd only size down if you were ready for some pain and wanted a slimmer fit. The waist is cut pretty tight in comparison to the rest of the top block.

If you're looking for a comfortable waist just get TTS. Their stretch is still less than other denim brands.

got my contest jeans in the mail yesterday maybe some pics in the coming week

I am a bit confused, lookind at the BIG one wash chart, the tight, rise and leg looks good to me in 31 and 32 size (they are very similar), the issue here is to know how much is the waist going to strectch. I am fine with a 32 waist after stretching, size 31 is 30.5 waist and size 32 is 31"(according to BIG) so if the wasit is going to stretch more than 1.5" size 32 could be too much, that
Sep 27, 2010 @ 20:04
Just go tts. They do have the potential to get 1.5" of stretch but it'll take quite a bit of time. Unsanforized denim continually shrinks when washed/soaked too. In the end it's always better to get the bigger size.
Sep 27, 2010 @ 21:07
^ Definitely go true to size. I went down 1 and I think TTS would have been the better choice.

Thanks a lot for your help. I am totally new to raw denim, I have a lot to learn abou it. So, you that , after washed it goes back to prewash measurement and stay that way for some time before they stretch again? this happens with regular jeans but it takes minutes to strectch again.

I been reading too about the firs soak/wash. The best thing to do is to hot soak at the beginning to shrink and then wash a few months after that, is that the way? why it has to be hot? is it going to shrink all the way with that first soak or you can expect more when you wash for the first time?

sorry for this many questions, I am just very curious about all this and is dificult to get all the proper info at once

Thanks a lot for your help

Just soaked ma Eternals smokeyface, they no longer stink like shit!

Because raw jeans are made of cotton they'll shrink up a good amount (unless they're sanforized - a treatment that prevents the jean from fading).Think of a cotton t-shirt that you wash for the first time and it shrinks up a good amount; it's the same principle. Raw jeans are normally cut a bit bigger to account for this.

The hotter the temperature of the soak the more the denim shrinks. You want to be sure that the soak is hot so that you get the maximum amount of shrinkage. Without the shrink when you go to wash them later all your fades will begin to shift and move along with the shrinkage and won't line up to where they were before.

Generally most jeans won't shrink all the way with the first soak but it will usually get most of it out which should be good enough to start wearing.
