Just ask him to take measured photos, if its 14.5 inches across then its a size 29.

He says it's 15.5.
Meaning 31 inches measured. Being a 29? That's what it says on BiG.

Sorry but I don't have any exp with Samurai denim. I'm 5'7, 130 pounds. True waist is measured too a 29. Would this pair fit me well?

Thats tagged on BIG.

If he hasn't soaked or washed, and the denim runs 31" measured then it'll still run a bit large (about 30) even after a soak, since your a size 29. If he soaked/washed already then don't get it, it'll run 2 sizes to big and won't have much more room to shrink, maybe .5.

I kept saying I would post an update, but I kept procrastinating. My gf left for college and I'm trying to keep my mind off of the fact that she left, so here's the update.

Samurai S710xx2nd 15oz, one pre-soak, one soak, approximately 3 months of wear.





Aug 27, 2009 @ 02:16
Those are coming along great Sarcaustic smokeyface. How long is the inseam now after a few soaks? Anyone know if the S710XX 19oz have 39.5" inseam from 2nd like the ones at BiG are?
Aug 27, 2009 @ 10:10
Do they still do 19oz?
Aug 27, 2009 @ 10:13
Do they still do 19oz?


yes. the standard is still 19oz. the 15 oz texas cotton was just a special edition for 2nd.

ur gonna have to email 2nd
the sizing chart says it will shrink to 91~3 cm
or you could ask someone who bought a pair from 2nd recently

mine is 17 oz, because i bought from BiG.

2nd's 710s are 19 oz because they have arcs and tabs.

the 2 arcs weigh 1 oz, and the red tab weighs 1 oz

so 2 arcs + red tab = 2 oz

and 2nd's 710s are 19 oz(17oz + 2 oz)

I bought mine from BiG and they only weigh 17 oz.

Also traffic is bad when it comes to the inter, sigh m whats the deal wif airplane food?

Ok so each arc is .5 oz.

And they have 2 arcs so .5z + .5oz is 1 oz

that means that 2 arcs is 1 oz, if u do the mathetmatics son?

also the tab is red, red is heavier so it is 1 oz.

so all and all you have .5oz arc + .5oz arc + 1 oz + 17ozdenim = 19 oz

yeah they streched out everywhere really and pretty quick. Hopefully these dont stretch that much


That sucks, same thing for me. Kinda makes me not want to wear my zero denim anymore. I should have enough saved up for the Black Knights hopefully and start a new pair of blacks =o

Lol, sub.

Go for it! You should sell them and buy the black knights.

Nah they weren't washed/soaked already. So if I got them they wouldn't really be true to size then? It'd be like sizing up?
Aug 27, 2009 @ 17:59
since they haven't been washed and it measures 31', after a soak it should shrink 2 inches in the waist
im guessing that pair is a tagged 29 so it will shrink to 29 waist
and that is going true to size for you, since ur a true 29...i think


edit:alleyooptroop is right
lot does matter
Aug 27, 2009 @ 20:36
Sarcaustic, those look great for 3 months

mine are 3 months in and are nowhere near that...although i guess its been a lot less than 3 months since i only really have been wearing them 3-5 times a week since june....

mine should get a lot more wear with the semester starting though

Same, same.

Planning to get the SEXI08s!

I already have black 710s.

NO MORE BLACKS IN MY BAYOU, SUHHH!!!
Aug 28, 2009 @ 20:11
I wouldn't get jealous if Mercyside picks up black knights.

Niiga think he the center of the universe? lol fuck that
Aug 29, 2009 @ 01:15
Hot washed my 710's. They didn't get soft at all. ^_^

FEELS GOOD MAN.


BTW, Roughan, yours didnt come with arcs?

2'nd 710's do come with 38 inch inseams pre-soak I think. I didn't measure mine, so idk.

Sarcaustic, what was your screename before that one? I remember seeing you post a long time ago by your pics, but I don't remember that username.

so just to clear things up, on lot 10 (and some lot 12), the waist measures tagged presoak?
so on lot 10 (and some lot 12), if i went true to size and it shrinks 2", the equivalent for lot 11 would be sizing down 2?
for example
im a true 29. if i got tagged 29 on lot 10, after soaking, the waist would measure ~27
that would be sizing down 2 on lot 11 correct?
Aug 30, 2009 @ 22:58
what are the official instructions for 710's? thanks

here's what I experienced with my size 29 lot 10's

Pre-soak
waist: 14.75
inseam: 35 (hemmed by 2nd)
hem: 7.75
thigh: 11.125

post 1 hour, 15 min hot soak measurements:
waist: 14.5
inseam: 33.5
hem: 7.5
thigh: 11

Lol, holy shit.

I just bought mine sized down one from the tag. I'm a size 29 and I bought a size 28.
Aug 30, 2009 @ 23:50
whoa so ur waist shrunk less than an inch?

i was asking because i read the early samurai forums and people went tts on lot 10
and after soaking, they shrunk almost 2 inches

so i was just wondering if the equivalent to that is sizing down 1 or 2 for lot 11
Aug 31, 2009 @ 00:02
if u buy from BiG, you can call them and request a specific lot #

then go from there, just call niigga, shit
Aug 31, 2009 @ 00:14
Just got my 710s last week, and have hot soaked em. I felt like I didn't get all the shrinking out of the way so I threw them in the wash. I'm waiting on them right now
Aug 31, 2009 @ 20:51
