I had some minor translation issues with 2nd. The google translator is highly inaccurate even with easy english.

But I had my friend do all the translating for me and I sent my mail in to setup and confirm my order, so hopefully I'll get 2nd's email tomorrow morning.

S0500s here we go

Edit: Yesssss, everything's confirmed. hopefully they'll come in this weekend or early next week.

Here they are, came in over the weekend. Pretty fast for international shipping. Sorry if the post-soak images are dark. I forgot to put the flash on my camera.

S0500xxs Size 31:

Overall, It's not too tight, not too loose. Just how I wanted it, but I have to get used to it after wearing APC NSs for the last 5 months. I heard these will shrink more, but I'm cool with that. The feel of the texas denim is pretty interesting.

I soaked first, but then I washed because my water wouldn't get hot anymore.

I went true to size with a size 30, but that lot ran small on the waist. They still stretched a good amount, but not as much as I wanted. Loved the fit but the waist was uncomfortable so I had to let them go.

S0500xxs Size 31:


Mind telling me what your true waist size is, as well as what size APC NS's you had? I'm looking into a pair of Sammies myself, but my APC NS sz 30 was just a teensy bit tight on me (wanted to sag it a little more than it allowed for). Thinking about a pair of 710s since it's a relatively similar fit to the NS (based on my measurements).

Edit: Also.. what are the main differences with heavier denim? Obviously it weighs more, but how would it affect wearability/stacking of the denim?

i'm a true size 32, i sized down 3 for my NS. The fit was pretty good for the NS after they stretched. my s0500s sorta slim-str8 right now. I got a lot of ass room though that's for sure. But it's nothing extremely bothersome though.

Heavier denim is going to be a lot stiffer when you first get them. I don't think it really affects the wearability, but I hear they don't stretch as much. I'm sure the stacks are gonna be dope too

Sweet, thanks for the help man. I sent my measurements to BiG and got their recommendation.. I think I'm going to go with the 710XXs in a 33 as per their recommendation.. now the hard part is mustering up the courage to spend that much cash on some denim suprised
