Looking good Lockjaw! Are those the older model PBJs or did you just rip the leaf stitching off?

I see the fades are coming in well.

This pic made me decide that PBJ 005s will be my next pair (over Flatheads). They look pretty much the same as my Skull 5010xx's which is just what I'm looking for again. I guess the sizing is pretty much the same as well, so I'll just go true to size.

Now I just gotta figure out where to get the money for these.blushing

rtst, how many inches did those shrink in the waist?

Post-soak looks good. Top half is perfect, bottom looks a bit odd but will look better once the stacking settles..

The waist shrunk an inch. But I'm might have to trade or sell em cause the waist got too loose. There's also some hip-flare probably cause it didn't shrink enough. I sized 31, but they're pre-wash 33. I'm probably a true-to-size 30 now cause of all this biking I've been doing the last few months. I'll hot-soak em again but a little longer to see If I can get more out of it. Otherwise, I'm selling or trading for 30

^That sucks man. If you do end up selling them though, sell my Sammies along with them. Hah, thanks mang.

I'd still like to see them, though.

when I get time, I'll post my pair in the marketplace with pics and measurements but i'm fairly sure they're close to the one-wash measurements on BIG (my were size 31). Basically looks like how it does in the pics above. If anyone's interested, shoot me a pm.

edit: sold

I have a 34" waist, should i get a 33" which measures 35.5" presoaked,
so it'll be at like 34ish after hot soaking?

If you've got bigger thighs, stick with true-to. If they're the norm, you can do a 33.

^this is true, otherwise, if you have smaller thighs like i do, you're gonna get hip flare.

I just got some 29s. about soak em.

I like the fit of the size 29s overall. I'm pretty sure the fit is gonna get a lot better when it stretches. It's a bit tighter than my 710s, but the hips aren't flaring like when I had size 31s out which is good. My only complaint is that its a little tight around the knees at the moment, but that's gonna go away eventually.

I'll get my pre-and post-soak pics up soon. I didn't have time to upload em today.

Wore my XX005's for the first time today (bought from rtst102) , and they feel great.

These are one size down from my true waist. I'll try to post some pics during the weekend!

that's good to hear man.

Unfortunately, I got a little too optimistic about sizing down to a 29. A big SMH to myself. I thought the thigh would stretch out enough to have enough clearance, but I've read the thighs don't stretch out too much and I'm kinda disappointed about that. I still need to put up those pics, but I've been busy to do so. I'm putting these up on the market soon.
