The Official Eternal Thread

i didnt listen but i know for sure i have more shrinkage left.
im gonna hot wash no spin tommorow because i get hotter water out of my washer rather than my tub.
if i run them through the dryer will it soften up to the point where they wont be stiff enough to set in stacks an creaeses? iv

I know what I'm talking about better than everybody who posts here regularly. What I meant was to give them a cold soak initially, and then to work out all the shrinkage after some wear and stretch. Having shrinkage left in your jeans is really not that big a deal, just as long as you have the length gone, and a good bit of it out. If you want to put them in the wash and then dryer, you will have all the shrinkage out, but you will also have all the starch out. You'll pretty much have a one/wash jean, and if you've seen eternal in one wash, they're really not too stiff at all, especially after a short bit of wear. If you want to keep them stiff until creases set in, just give them an initial arbitrary hot soak. As I said, having a little bit of shrinkage left in the jean will not hurt you.

im gonna do a hot wash no spin
and hang dry

that should get all my shrinkage out of the way

the extra shrinkage is a problem for me because im not happy about the thighs at the moment.

So, if you want the lower leg to remain stiff while getting all the shrinkage out of the thigh, why not just give the thigh region a boiling hot soak. If you want your jeans to remain stiff, that's what I would go for. But, if that's not of as much importance to you, do what you originally intended to do, wash then machine dry.

just gonna hot wash the whole thing no spin though
ill still have starch though

2nd hot soak did it around 45minutes
measurements seem pretty good while they are wet
8.5 kneee
10.25ish thigh
rise is a little less than 11
hem is slightly short of 8

should shrink a bit more when theyre done drying
hopefully get a good fit this time
pics up tonight probably

the fit on these could have been better sadly
Maybe these will hit the market place

but it is a change from apcs alot more open, but they dont work with my fits
but as jeans at the waist they feeeel comfy.


love/hate thing i guess i should have size down more

Eternal 811 are not really modern fitting at all. They're a vintage (66' slimmed down repro) fit, and most people looking for a modern, slimmish fit from them will be disappointed. Sizing down 1 more would really not have helped very much. If you want a more modern fit, get something from flathead, the denim is similar in quite a few of its qualities, while the fit is better (in my opinion). But, eternal does have the best vertical construction around, and the general construction and durability are also superior.

overall i was def. impressed in the quality. I knew that eternals were based off that cut, they def at a different feel at the waist. But i did spend time on researching the sizing and after tech posted his fit i was convinced.

I actually do semi like the fit except i think theyre stiff at the top and the rise keeps comin up like i got a boner or something so im seeing how these are when they settle down a bit.

I see you heat. smokeyface

Yup, its me. blushing

im almost definitely copping a pair of 811s....but my one question is do i have to worry about knee bulge in these?
Oct 08, 2009 @ 14:19
all jeans get knee bulge. its natural, just like getting leg twists- something you may not like but shits still going to happen
Oct 08, 2009 @ 14:29
knee buldges eventually settle down and look fine as the denim loosens up a bit more
Oct 08, 2009 @ 18:09
The tighter the fit, the looser the weave, the more knee bulge you'll get.

That said, relaxed fits tend not to have as much knee bulge, same with tighter weaves.
Oct 09, 2009 @ 10:09
lol im aware knee bulge is inevitable but i know some jeans tend to stretch more than others. either way i think eternals are next up for me
Oct 09, 2009 @ 17:05
I have barely if not none at all a knee bulge, its very minimal for me

Goddamn so close to having enough for these smh. Idk if I can resist spending it on like outwear and what not blinkyeyes
Oct 15, 2009 @ 23:19
PBJ or this.

Do the 811s still suffer the weird hipflare some ppl seemed to get?
Oct 15, 2009 @ 23:40
Yes, even though I sized down one I still manage to have some what of a hip flare but it doesn't bother me.

Do your research it should be pretty easy, look at what models you want, how the fading is in your opinion, the specs (denim weight, price, fit, etc.) and decide.

Yeah, I like the fit of your 811s tech. From the looks of it, sizing down 1 reduces the flare.

It all boils down to choosing between this and xx-005s. And a couple of checks for some shows I'll be playing for the next 2 weeks.

flare it seems eventually goes away for about all of the eternals in 811. i've gone through every page on sufu as well. each closer to worn pair after a long stretch of time has gone down. initially, only is the flare. it all depends if you willing to let it go or not, the flare.

are the big inseam 811's at blue in green sanforized or unsanforized?

WE TRIPPY MANE

Oct 23, 2009 @ 10:32
^they have both
Oct 24, 2009 @ 15:24
They are both unsanforized. The raw is just the one wash before the industrial wash.
Nov 02, 2009 @ 15:49

Nov 02, 2009 @ 17:07
Aight I'll try to post some updates soon.
