Black power, spend another 50 and get some pure blue japan..I haven't owned any but they maybe my next pair if I can hold off form buying other things.

Kmz- I would say buy different denim just so you can experience different kinds ya know. Unless you really loved APC. I want PBJ next or something skinnier and a little more tapered than Naked & Famous. I own the skinny guy and weird guy, but I haven't tried WG in 27 yet so I might do that before PBJ. Thing is they don't make every WG in 27.

If you want an exotic denim try N&F, if you just want some plain blue jeans APC is a slightly better choice.

how long until all the stretching is over and done with? assuming everyday wear

by sitting like this or something similar (i like to have my leg up at the computer) would it cause more proneness to crotch tears? only when the denim is fresh? ( so when it softens up its okay? ) ive got a pair of uniqlos that ive worn for 3 years and its only now starting to wither in the crotch area but i always hear people getting crotch tears =S

Try tape. Put a layer of tape on the inside of the denim leg opening to prevent it from bleeding on your shoes.

Should I shrink my raw denim before i go get it tapered? Or vice versa?

Has Pure Blue Japan ever released denim that wasn't raw? Well besides the no fade blacks...

UndefeatedJK My suggestion is to shrink it first. Cause then they might shrink to how you like it. You don't wanna taper them first then shrink because they might be too skinny afterwards.

Thanks. I want to shrink them ALOT. Would putting them in the dryer after soaking them make them shrink alot?

Interested in a pair of samurais or pure blue japans, could anyone tell me any substantial difference between the two? I'm looking for a slim tapered fit. Also in terms of quality which one is better?

Which pairs of Samurai's and PBJ's exactly are you looking into?
Jan 18, 2012 @ 05:01
Ahh sorry the 710 or the xx-011 or xx-013
Jan 18, 2012 @ 06:17
Those 2 models of PBJs will be slimmer than 710s.

Question concerning n&f.
a friend of mine is new to the raw denim game and it will probably end up with some deep indigos.
What do you recommend for sizing on the different fits?
after some research i'd recommend size down 1 or 2 for the weird guys and slim guys and size down 1 or tts for the skinny guys.
are you d'accord?
thanks man!

I would shrink before you taper. If you taper first, you may not be happy with the fit after shrinking later.

Most of PBJs models are also sold as one-wash.

A super hoat soak for 30 mins should do it. You can put them into the dryer but that may make them more softer, more indigo loss, and put in some creases down the lines.

Putting denim in the dryer will get you maximum shrinkage, but how much total shrinkage you get depends a lot on what kind of denim you are trying to shrink and if it is sanforized or not. What kind of jeans are you trying to shrink?

I don't think there's a huge difference between the two brands. Both are high-end Japanese denim brands that mostly use slubby, unsanforized denim. PBJ generally uses lighter weight denim and costs a little bit less than Samurai, and Samurai uses heavier weight denim and generally has nicer cosmetic details. Both are excellent brands, you can't go wrong with either one.

Awesome thanks for the info. I've decided to go with PBJ, fan of the taper. Also I saw on BiG that the xx-011 and the xx-013 now fit the same just different fabrication process and dying. How would I size on either pair, TTS or size down 1?

I haven't worn either cut in a couple of years, but when I owned a pair of XX-013s, they ran really big. I had to size down 2 from my actual waist measurement just to keep them from being really baggy right from the get-go. I think they've changed the cut since then, they may not run as big anymore.

Also for the one wash pair they just did that to get the shrinkage out right? Sorry for the barrage of questions just wanna make sure before I make my first high-end purchase.
Jan 19, 2012 @ 18:27
Im planning on buying a N&F + Flat Head collab based of the weird guy fit. I can where a size 30-32 in levis 511. The smallest pair they have left is a tagged 30 but the size chart lists it at a 32 (why tag it at 30????). How do people usually size the N&F weird guys. Does it stretch at all because even at 32 i would need a belt. So in a sense i would be sizing up. I dont know how the wierd guys usually fits, can someone enlighten me on whether to look into it or would sizing up be a bad decision.
Jan 19, 2012 @ 18:53
I've worn weird guys and I would say go TTS since the denim is un sanforized it will shrink 1" in the waist. Usually you would size down 1 otherwise. The weird guy has a low rise and is a slim fit with a tapered leg. You should just send them a message.

Yes, the one wash is mainly to get the shrinkage out.

Waiting on their response. My TS is 31. Would the tagged 30 (size chart 32) suffice? Or would i go by the chart, which would be a 29(31) (sold out smh(( )
