I'm about to pull the trigger and buy the 005's in 32 but my only concern is why is the inseam so long? the inseam on my levis is only 32 and the 005's are all 37's. I'm 6'2 so is it going to be too long on me?
June 22, 2011 @ 23:39:29
My 005 shrunk to 34.5 after a soak, which should be good for you if you're 6'2
June 22, 2011 @ 23:44:16
Wow thats a big shrink...how much did everything else shrink? cuz the 32's are only a little bit longer on every measurement than my levi's besides the inseam.
June 22, 2011 @ 23:45:12
Well they might be 35, every site says they shrink 2'', an inch in the waist, and .5'' everyelse
June 22, 2011 @ 23:50:22
fuck...the only thing is that my levi's are a little too skinny now (i measured after i washed them) so after i soak the 005''s the measurements are going to be almost identical.. probably off by about .5 or smaller. should i just buy the 005's in 33s?? \

here are my measurements.

waist-34
front rise-10
back rise-13
upper thigh -11
knee-8
leg opening-7
inseam-31

Is the raw better then the one wash?
June 26, 2011 @ 18:25:27
^Imo, one wash and raw don't really differ in any major way. My one wash 007s stretched out to around the same measurements as the the raw 007s.

June 26, 2011 @ 21:52:11
did they stretch out alot? cuz i went true to size and i think im fucked if they stretch alot

They are the exact same thing, except the one-wash has been pre-shrunk for you. One is not better than the other.

If you bought the one wash they will stretch out.

Just got my pbj's in the mail yestarday can wait to start breaking them in. Only complaint I have is the bigass leg opening / a small flare at the knee. I can't wear my janoskis with these jeans unless I have then tapered smh
June 30, 2011 @ 21:18:28
^Return them and get a slimmer cut... Or cuff, don't taper if possible.

What's wrong with tapering them?
July 02, 2011 @ 01:57:03
your modifying something that wasn't meant for you.
Just get the right cut.
You spent a couple hundred and you still need them altered?
If you can always return

if it's too late then ya alter just take it to a very good tailor also you can probably trade on sufu.

Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with tapering as long as you have someone do it without touching the selvage line. Plus, if he bought the 005 cut, he can't really go slimmer than that with PBJ anyway.
July 02, 2011 @ 12:18:00
Actually the 013's and the 011's already have a tapered leg so i just sent my 005's back for an exchange. Thanks for the advice i didnt't want to have to send my 005's in to the denim doctors...
July 02, 2011 @ 12:18:03
x011^^


edit: good decision!
July 02, 2011 @ 12:42:51
I actually got the 013's because they didn't have the 011's in my size but they both fit the same so it's all good

Yeah, I mean I am not against tapering I just meant that if he can get a pair that is slimmer, why not? Tapering (unless done right) can lead to results one does not like. It also can cost quite a bit of money.

The only way I would think tapering is just plain dumb is if the denim is not a special edition model, and someone buys a loose cut they don't even like when they can get the same exact denim that company uses, just a slimmer cut. But I see the samueljwl retuned his (her) for a slimmer version.

Just be aware that the 013s are a little bit looser in the thigh than the 005s. Aside from the leg opening, the 005s are the slimmest men's cut that PBJ makes.

where are the pictures?? smh
July 08, 2011 @ 15:35:23
Just got my 0013's in the mail today. Fuckin excited to start breaking these in, they fit way better presoak than the 005's. Quick question though, presoak inside out or regular side.

For soaking, it doesn't really matter. There's no agitation, so the indigo loss would be pretty much the same either way.
July 09, 2011 @ 17:36:19
Yea...I just did a hot soak yestarday and the waist/thigh area is on point but I think I might do another hot soak for the knee down. There's kind of a small calf flare so a soak should hopefully fix it
July 10, 2011 @ 09:48:55
they might be a bit long is that the case?
July 10, 2011 @ 12:55:57
Uhhh yeah just like an inch too long. I'm 6'2 though so Its not that bad. I just feel like the knee down didn't shrink as much as It shouldve

Hey what jeans did you get? I am also 6'2 and i am thinking of picking up a pair of xx-007's

Do you have any fit pics? how'd you size and whats your weight?
July 10, 2011 @ 16:29:27
^^

i got the 0013's their the best fit for me imo cuz im pretty skinny. I'm 6'2-'3 like 165-170.

I tried the 005's and the straight leg was murder for me. so i got the tapered leg 013's. Ill put fit pics up after i soak the knee tonight. i might have to get a hem if the soak doesn't do much

Does anyone know if resoaking just the knee down is a bad idea? I'm trying to get a more shrinkage in the inseam and a lil in the leg opening.
