soap's right.

and it looks like you didn't get all the shrinkage out of the way. sometimes the hottest tap water aint gonna cut it. you gotta boil some water nikka. like a blacksmith, you gotta get that shit hot enough to mold it into perfection. only then can it truly become an extension of yourself self self self self

Or you can return em and get some apcs. buttt nahh you aint ready for apcs yet. Gotta start with the small weaponry first

Boiling water shrinks the patch though...

aye it's a 4inx2in part of your jeans that you either cover with a belt or drape with a shirt. Unless you wearing belly shirts I wouldn't....nvm

Fit > patch. The picture wears off anyway.

But forreal dough maybe the newer lots are on some whack shit with their patches cause i boiled mines, came out normal. I just didn't pour it right over the patch. I did that with another pair and the leather just hardened but became softer after a while.

Who cares about the patch? Its a nice bonus, but if you dont want it to get warped just dont pour the water directly. A and if you want the most shrinkage I wouldn't boil the water, but just heat it up almost to a boil. Also samurais are known for shrinking a ton, I did a cold soak on mine and they shrunk a lot.

I bought my sam 710s the other day. i went to the store to try them on, and Gordon at BIG said i should go with the 33 instead of the 32. I bought the 33, but now i'm worried...



I feel that there's so much room in the top block and the thighs. soaked for one hour with hottest tap water. what should i do? should i sell and resize?


The fit looks good to me, but if you want them to fit a little bit slimmer, I'd recommend another hot soak. It usually takes at least 2-3 hot soaks to get all of the shrinkage out of Samurais.

good fit!! But if you want to get them slimmer soak them up a few more times. I soaked mine 3 times to get a perfect fit.

Those look good, don't size down. 710s will just keep shrinking - especially after the first wash. Don't doubt Gordon smokeyface

Pm me if youre selling s710s size 30. New or used doesnt matter
Feb 14, 2011 @ 16:09

Agreed! The fit is great on them!


Here are just a few random pics of my Sams..






And a progress picture, this is actually how faded they are, but I can't seem to take a picture outside that actually shows the progress, so inside shit quality will have to do...
