Measure your waist where you intend on wearing them and go true to size.

Thats cool. I'm just trying to figure out my sizing. Most pants in a 36w are really big on me, except the N&F SkinnyGuy, but that fit is super small. Like, I wear a 34w in the WeirdGuy, and it's near PERFECT after stretching. So I am really unsure as to what I would wear in a 710.

I agree, measuring your waist is the best thing, but I would estimate from what you are telling me that you will probably be a size 36 in the 710. IME, most other brands of pants are vanity-sized in the waist by about 2", while the Skinny Guy is generally only vanity-sized by about 1".

Since Samurais are unsanforized (shrink-to-fit), you'll probably want to keep your soaks and washes cold to minimize shrinkage, if you like the original raw fit in the 36. If you want to do hot soaks and hot washes, you'll probably have to go to a 38, but I think there's a chance that those will be loose on you even with hot soaks and washes.

What is that supposed to mean?confused

I sized up one on my 710's and I like the way they fit, they are always tight after a wash but go right back to where they need to be after a day or two.

It is dark, but it actually isn't as blue as I thought it to be... it actually is more like purple.

Here are 2 close-ups.

I have those too, and I agree, they are really dark and they look purple, not blue, when they are raw. They do look more blue as they fade, though.

I think its cause of the brown weft makes them look more like purple. They are starting to show signs of wear after one wear btw.


OK, here is the latest update on my pair.

Post soak:



Post soak fit (I think I am going to leave as is until I need to wash them).




Then after day 1




Now I just want to say a few things.. These things are f*cking tough! Damn, I thought my 18 oz S500JX-LRs hurt after their initial soak, but these things not only hurt but annoyed the crap out of me the whole day! Needless to say if you guys think I should do another soak I am not. My reason is that from what I have been reading their isn't much shrinkage in them, and I poured boiling water onto the jeans so if that won't shrink them after the first soak I highly doubt they will shrink that much. I think I could have sized down 1, but it is too late now (unless someone has a brand new pair they would be willing to trade) and even so I got a nice deal on them and like the fit.

Now I just gotta hit up BiG and get them hemmed from them.

Edit: Oh, and measurements:

Pre-
Waist: 15.5"
Inseam: 37"
Knee: 8.75"
Hem: 8.5"
Thigh: 11.5"
F. Rise: 10.25"

Post:

All the same except for the inseam shrunk 1" and the waist .25"

so i get my samurai 710s tomorrow, and i'm debating between a hot wash and a hot soak in boiling water. at the moment, i'm leaning towards a hot wash.

from searching this thread, it seems that hot washes get more shrink out but at what expense? will the jeans lose more indigo? on average, how many hot washes does it take before the shrink is out?

i've also noticed that using boiling water damages the patch. does any such damage happen after a hot wash? why would i want to do a hot soak rather than a hot wash?

thanks in advance.

^ Do a hot wash. Just make sure to take them out before the spin cycle, then hang dry outside. Usually takes around 2-3 hot washes to get full shrinkage, but you will get most of it with the first wash.

You'll lose a little more indigo with a hot wash, but you'll get a little more shrinkage. Also, with a wash, you'll get a whole bunch of little creases and scratches in the raw denim from the agitation of the machine. If that bugs you, do the hot soak instead, that seems to be the more popular way to go initially.

The hot wash won't damage the patch, though. Hot wash temperatures don't really get up near boiling, plus Samurai patches are thicker and more durable than most that I've seen.
