NOt sure, but I think you can have the tab put in on the 710 from BIG. They should come with arcs though?...

But if you order from rakuten the downside is the wait, communication (unless they speak english or you speak Japanese), and that you are probably going to have to pay custom fees, so it will eventually come out to the same price as the ones from BiG.

I'm in the same boat as you, but what are the tabs/arcs you're talking about?

BiG 710's come with arcs and tabs now. The pictures haven't been updated on the site for awhile.

If you order from Rakuten, it will end up being cheaper. Just make sure you order the right size.

Gordon at BiG is very helpful with sizing help and exchanges/returns. I personally would support BiG, they're cool people.

Edit: Heres the pair I picked up last month.

officialy, Samurais are sold without the arcs&tabs outside of Japan because of the Levi's lawsuit.
But BiG now kinda "ignores" it just to please you guys. It's a open secret. But of course he don't want to show it on his website to get in trouble. So keep it quiet

just ordered them from BiG =]

hey guys im debating if i should get a size 34 or 35 samurai 710s.... but i cant decide.. i want it to be slim but comfurtable.. i cant fit a 33 for sure.. and i own a pair of s5000 fire element in 35(hotwash) and the waist is alright but i want the whole leg to be more slim n tapered ... and i got 35 because i sag a little can someone please help...

nohomo but i want it to fit like this http://i34.tinypic.com/2462fwm.jpg
Jun 25, 2011 @ 06:50
I'd say go with a 35. the S710 cut is slimmer in the legs from the get go so no need to size down in comparison to your S5000 if that pair already fit good in the waist
Jun 25, 2011 @ 15:36
thanks bro and eim about to hot wash em too

First review of the S5000VX24oz


I just put them on and it was a fight. Some of my jeans shrank to a smaller size than these but there was no problem to buttom them up and stretch them. I really needed some minutes till I could button these 24oz beast up.
They are now raping my hip ;-) I think it's my slimmest Samurai fit I currently own.

The denim is very thick and rigid but also not as slubby&irregular as the other Samurai denim. I think it's the same with the PBJ and SG heavy denim. Both brands are also known for slubby and irregular denim but the heavier, the cleaner the denim is woven. Maybe because the looms are already under such heavy stress that irregular yarns would torture the looms too much.

Measurements
waist: 34 / 33
front rise: 11,5 / 10,75
back rise: 15 / 14
thigh: 13 / 12,5
knee: 9,5 / <9,5
leg opening: 9 / 8,75
inseam: 37,5 / 35,75

That fit is fucking ideal. How did you size on those?

I'm a true size 35 so these aer SDO. I wouldn't recomemnd it as for now. if they stretch back easily then I will tell you about it. So far I would say go TTS, as these shrink FROM tag size

Post soak fit:



As you can imagine and see, still very stiff and needs a bit stretch for a better look from tha back ;)


And little give-aways from 2ND
