The Official Pure Blue Japan Thread

I think someone just purchased my Skulls from BiG so I should be getting some new denim. I have been lurking PBJ board for awhile now so I just want to make sure on the sizing on the PBJ.

My true waist is a 31. I wear a 29 in APC NC and a 30 in Nudie Thin Finns. I like to sag my jeans/wear them on the hip.

For the XX-005, should I be going TTS on the tagged size or the measured size? I heard you aren't supposed to size down. Is there much of a difference between one washed and raw? And if I get raw, well I have to soak it before wear?


Yes, go true to size, and get a 31. One wash will have less starch on them and would have shrank to the measurements on the website, will not shrink much even if you soak yourself. You don't HAVE to soak if you get the raws, I soaked my 007s though.

Yeah please keep that shit talking out of this DENIM thread.

007s are quite different from most of the PBJs, it is very slubby has creates a very unique blue fades.

Check out stukov's evos:


im sorry but this is just terrible , i mean u did a good job with the whiskers, but the hips....and the calf flare makes this fit look terrible, since ur short why didn't u hem?

I dont think people are impressed with the fit, just the fading
March 12, 2010 @ 15:47:02
Planning to get a hem done in the near future

Attempting to take accurate shots of my 007. Sorry for the mass pics:

Good shit stukov, mine just hit 2 months and 3 days bday. Fading is starting to increase, maybe I will post pics on the 3 month mark. Tell me why I was thinking about hemming too haha.

i've always noticed that about pbj's, it seems like the calve's always end up flaring excessively.

March 19, 2010 @ 19:07:18
^are they sanforized? or do I gotta throw them in the tub for a quick soak?
March 19, 2010 @ 19:16:47
XX-013 are not in the Pure Blue Japan section, they are in the Blue in Green section.
March 19, 2010 @ 22:09:23
those are amazing, I want a pair so bad. Way out of my price range though smh
March 20, 2010 @ 02:49:01

March 22, 2010 @ 21:47:19

is the leg opening smaller on these 013s?
March 22, 2010 @ 22:34:10
yeh, just a bit smaller.
March 24, 2010 @ 19:38:30
Saw the fit pics on SuFu, was not impressed. Just received shipping email for the xx-005.
March 24, 2010 @ 23:54:15
One of the fits look like it had huge calf flare, which was weird
March 29, 2010 @ 15:22:59
Do any of you owners have to deal with any stretching? If so, how much?
March 30, 2010 @ 03:33:33
Stretching of where? Waist, thighs, calfs?
March 30, 2010 @ 09:41:52
Waist and thighs. That's part of the problem I'm going trough with my apc's right now. It's like if I don't soak them monthly they start to look goofy and end up with hella hip flare.
