I'm finally looking for a pair of PBJs, but unfortunetaly they are hard to get over here in Germany so I hope you can help me out.

I'm looking for a tapered fit, so the xx-011 or -013 would be the best fit, I guess.

At the moment I wear some Naked & Famous Weird Guy Deep Indigos in Size 30, the actual waist size after stretching a bit (lain flat on the ground) is 16,5 inches but they could be a little smaller in the waist.

I actually like the fit and looking for something similar with the PBJs. Which size would you recommend?

I'm also planning to wear em for about a year without washing so I should probably go with the raw and not the one wash model, am I right?

you can see the fit here:

i've heard that the 011 stretch a lot. you might want to go with a 1wash so that you know what you are getting with respect to size, and can wear them from the start. try blueingreensoho for sizes, etc.

Thanks for the link!
As a rawhead I ask myself what the negative aspects of the one washed ones are?

basically the same with raw.. with raw, u can soak them all u want.. hot soak'em if its too loose.. or cold soak'em if its too tight..
with one wash, u can wear them without soaking them first
i dont think its recommended not to wash ur jeans for 1year.. u can get a massive crotch blowout if im not mistaken.. but its ur jeans, ur rules :D
eniwei for ur sizing.. maybe u can check 1 page back.. i posted a photo there comparing my true size (31) and my down size (30).. if ur looking for relax fit, i suggest taking ur true size.. but the waist will stretch quite a bit
hope this helps

I'm a true 32 and currently own a pair of apc ps in tagged 30 and love the fit however I think I want a pair of PBJS-011 now because I heard the fit is similar. how should i size?

also youre supposed to soak your jeans before you wear to avoid crotch blowouts?

I never did for my ps and I just experienced one on my 8th month
June 21, 2012 @ 17:19:43
pbj xx011 raw = unsanforized.. u need to soak it first.. if u dont want to soak it first, u can buy the one wash version

apc = sanforized.. no nead to soak

anyway bout the crotch blowouts is another diff matter
June 21, 2012 @ 19:26:46
do the raws and the one wash fade the same? the difference is just that the one wash dont stretch or shrink?

fade the same.. the difference only that for raw, u have to soak it first..
one wash, basically they soak them already.. so u can wear them on the go and u dont need to worry bout the shrinkage etc.. u can check bigs one wash chart & thats what u get..

xx-007 size 34 (up size 1)
August 21, 2012 @ 05:48:21
^ Those xx-007s are good lookin. That deep indigo color is dope.

@jehuti2468 Do everyone here a favor an never, ever wear mandals with jeans again lol. Fit is good. I might soak again because they look a little tight but not too bad. The looser you can get them the more pleased you'll be with fades. Looks good doe.

@bak what model are you wearing in the pic? I wouldn't get a more tapered fit personally, it's going to make you look more top heavy. But if you HAVE TO go xx-009. I would get xx-005 if I were you. A straight fit with a 36 inch inseam would look wavy.
August 21, 2012 @ 07:09:20
Fit is trash bruh. Try again.
August 21, 2012 @ 08:12:33

PBJ XX-007 back from the dead:

November 12, 2012 @ 21:34:08
Was looking for this thread like 2 weeks ago. But anyone have any exp with the 13's? Had the 11's but they stretched out so much in the waist so i had to sell. Do they stretch out as much as the 11's? anyone got fitpics?
November 13, 2012 @ 03:29:48
They're the same cut. One's just Left Hand Twill. Sufu has plenty of fit pics tho. Can't help ya on anything else tho.

Plan on getting some PBJ's sometime in the near future. Denim looks sooo good!!

Isn't there a place in DC that sells PBJ?? I came across this site once and found a store in DC that sells some Japanese denim brands but can't remember. If I find it again I'll let you know unless you already know. Would love to at least try them on
November 14, 2012 @ 00:19:08
@lckychrmsbboy You from DC? Like Nova dc? yeah but i dont know anywhere that sells denim except the obvious places like selfedge, blueowl and blueingreen. Whats left hand twill? when the pant leg wraps around your leg all weird? Lol i know its a weird description but thats really the only way i know how to explain.
November 14, 2012 @ 07:19:54
yea, i'm like 20 mins South of DC. I still haven't found the stores name. But i do remember reading that they carry some Jap. denim. LHT is just the way the denim is woven, most jeans are right hand twill. If you were to look at your jeans holding them in front of you, you will notice the denim pretty much runs from the top right down to the left. LHT is just the opposite and is suppose to have a smoother/softer feel.
