shipping brah
February 05, 2011 @ 00:46:15
I've never heard of $30 shipping that's why, the most I paid for over seas was like 10-15.

If we're being exact, 2nd charged me 2400 yen in shipping the last time I bought a pair of Samurais from them. At current exchange rates, that comes out to $29.20 USD.

Seriously god damn, those need to be fucking hemmed. I know you probably never will but a hem would make them fit 1000x better.

How much does the leg shrink after hot soaking to get the shrinkage out?

You gotta be a boss to understand this SLP lifestyle.

Lol you gotta be a boss to own samurais & therefore I am a boss, hem them shits.

2-3", but with Samurais, it will likely take at least 2 or 3 hot soaks to get all of the shrinkage out.

Not sure if I am liking this look or not... Just not used to these cuffed and with boots with heels, probably going to stick to my redwings... But heres my s500JX-LR's.



Sorry for poor pic quality, but at night it is hard to take good pictures..

Those cuffs are fucking huge, WTF. Just hem them shits.
February 07, 2011 @ 21:53:30
Only reason why they look like that is cause I usually stack, thats why they are so big.

Really not digging the look of those giant cuffs. Why not continue stacking with those boots?
February 08, 2011 @ 00:12:50
Looks good soap, gave mine another hot soak to see if i could get rid of any shrinkage anywhere that was left over from my initial, and indeed there was haha
February 08, 2011 @ 02:18:41
^They'll continue to shrink every time they touch hot water. And then stretch back out again.

What's with all this super stack shit? A little stack is fine, but not when your entire lower leg is a fuckin slinky. You already spent 300 dollars on a pair of jeans, why not splurge an extra 25 on a hem and get them to actually fit?

I just wanted to try something different yesterday, but im just going to go back to stacking. I'm not that big of a fan with cuffs on my samurais, just doesn't look right imo.

Lax, GIANT cuffs never look good lax. I .5" cuff my Sams & they look dope, adds some extra detail.

This is usually how I wear mine:



...Well with the exception of sandals/slippers, yeah I let them stack with a little cuff.

That definitely looks better than the giant cuffs.

Good shit, exactly how I wear mine with that little cuff.

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?

looks like they fit you perfect

any tighter would be way uncomfortable for raw denim
February 11, 2011 @ 01:41:43
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...
February 11, 2011 @ 02:00:26
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.
February 11, 2011 @ 07:52:30
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.

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.
