Whattup y'all...I'm feeling PBJs and I'm thinking of copping a pair soon. You mightve seen me in the fit thread asking the same question, but which model is closest to APC New Cures??...I'm looking for a slimmer fit. One thing im confused about are the measurements on BlueinGreenSoho.com . for the XX-005 joints, it lists that the leg opening is 9.25 inches for a size 34, while on tobi.com for example, they list the leg opening for Nudie Thin Finns (which I thought were supposed to be skinny) as 15 inches...That doesnt make much sense. How do 005s fit in comparison to NCs or Thin Finns??

Maybe they listed the total leg opening of the Thin Finns, which would make sense as that would equal 7.5.

Ohhh ok I see, so in terms of the leg opening measurement in comparison to how they list it on tobi.com would translate to 18.5 ...which is a bit looser than Thin Finns...but @ the same time I need some good Japanese denims and PBJs seem like the ones for me.

Are the XX-005 in black very hard to fade?

So if I rock a size 34, according to BiG, I should get a size 32 'cause the waist runs way smaller than your true-size in the pre-soak measurements. But if I soak them wouldnt they get even smaller and end up mad tight??

no the waist doesn't run small, get true to size. some people here and on sufu have even sized up 1. the only reason the measurements are bigger than the tagged size is because these are stf and shrink with a good soak.

so basically a 34 measures 36.5 but would shrink to 34 when soaked

i dont think they taper, pretty sure they only do chain stitching just like selfedge.

If I were to go true to size on a pair of XX-005, would I still get a nice slim cut out of it?

Thanks.

Just got these Thursday afternoon. I gave them a 50 minute hot soak (slightly warmer than shower temperature). I sat in them for the first 30 minutes then let them soak on their own for 20 more minutes. Took them out and hang dried them overnight. They were still mildly damp in the morning so I wore them to school to dry on me. Still waiting for them to stretch out that last bit then they will be perfect.

I went true to size on these, tagged a 29 raw. I'm about 5'7 maybe 5'8 and 125 pounds.

Pre-soak:




post-soak:




I've already gotten those knee boobs though, fucking c cups dangling from my legs. Anyways, I can't wait to see how these turn out after whatever minor stretching they may do. Definitely slubby denim, this shit is coarse. Great jeans though, for sure worth the price

Hah, maybe we should trade. I was just thinking how I should have gone up 1 to get your fit.
