ALL OF YOU ARE FUCKING RETARDS! The jeans are fine. Stack fades really aren't that fantastic, and it makes a good fit, depending on the jean, look bad. If you look at all the classic japanese denim heads, they hem their jeans up to their ankles. Whiskers have nothing to with length, and not too much with fit. Those are not baggy, they are a good slim fit. After a soak they will look much better. You are supposed to size true on the sexi08 jean. To add onto what I said earlier, give them a boiling hot soak, and then give them a bit of a cuff.

???

If you need a belt to keep your jeans from falling off they are baggy, enough said. It really looks that loose. Logic? whoisron's is not sized properly to be considered a slim fit! rather a baggy fit and that's unfortunate w/ a $350 pair of selvedge you're supposed to break in to get the most of your wear. lol also, they will stretch back out anyways to the same size. Match it up to this default pic...

Ya'll need to get off Sidney's dick. He squeezes into the smallest pair he can for those shoots to replicate a post-soak fit. The fit on those is fine. The reason it looks baggy is because they're tapered a good amount when compared to the unsoaked top block.

Besides, though they may stretch out in the waist probably to tagged size and then some, that doesn't mean, at all, that the entire jean will stretch back out to what they look like pre-soak.

When all is said and done with a nice hot soak, they'll probably end up looking like:

FAR from a bad looking fit. Slim, with a little room. Stop being so ign'ant.

Help sizing advice.
okay guys can you help me then so I can get a better fit on my next pair of raw denim jeans.

Should I downsize 1 or 2 sizes? my waist measuring from my belly button is 28.5 inches and my hip bone natural waist line is 29 inches.

The sexi08s I got were a size 30 but presoak they are 31 inches and then after a nice hot soak then will shrink to a 30 waist and then expand back out to 31 inches or so after a week.

Should I have gotten a 29 or 28?

Also what inseam length would be a good length for my height being 5 feet 6 inches? An inseam length around 33 inches?

Thanks guys.

I say you should get the 30s, hot wash with a tad bit of detergent, and wear them.

As for the inseam, it really depends how you want it done. If you want stacks, leave em. If you don't want stacks but want to cuff, chop them down to a size 32. No stacks, no cuff, go with a 31.

So much hate for that fit. I don't think it's that terrible, and I think after a nice hot soak they'll look miles better.

1. Soak jeans in warm water for 30 minutes
2. Allow to fully dry
3. Change out of blue t-shirt with bomb
4. Remove hat
5. Put jeans back on.
6. BOOMTIME.

Here's my SExI08 at around a month of wear (probably more like 25 days or so). There's not much going on, but just wanted to give a photographic idea of how they are fading. Color is most accurate in macro/detail shots.

Why does everyone insist on getting lower/middle-end denim for their first pair? If you go and shell out the $300+ on the Imperials, you'd instantly see and feel that they're definitely worth the price.

That's what I did with the first collab. The only problem is that now I am broke and need some new jeans, except nothing will feel the same unless I buy some higher end denim.

Don't blame it on the jeans, blame it on money management.

Haha, i'm not mad about it. I'm still wearing them 1.6 years later, although they have holes in them. I would have spent that money on something else probably anyway. It just sucks that nothing but high end denim will feel the same again, but i'm glad I got the jeans, for sure.

Ah, okay. Quality denim is like quality coke. Once you get a hit of the good stuff, I guess you can go back to the lower end stuff, but it will never be the same. While it may be expensive, it's also addictive. You'll find a way to get yourself more.
