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.

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:

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

XX-013 are not in the Pure Blue Japan section, they are in the Blue in Green section.

Do any of you owners have to deal with any stretching? If so, how much?

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.
