Hey guys, I just got a pair of S710XX and they have been an interesting start.
These jeans are extremely long, I'd say I'm a 32 inseam and on my Naked and Famous (34 inseam) I stacked them so they're fine. However these 19OZ denim look very baggy below the knees when I try to stack, should I go for a soak in order to try and shorten the inseam? Or should I just keep trying to wear and see how it works out from there. Or just find someone who can chain stitch in my city (Vancouver) to hem these jeans. If you want to see what I should do and need fit pics, ask and I'll take them.
You should definitely hot soak Samurais at least once or twice before you hem them or even wear them a lot. They are unsanforized, so they will shrink significantly in the inseam (2-3") when they touch hot water. You're going to want to get this shrinkage out of the way now so that your fades and your length stay in their proper places when you do wash the jeans further on down the road.
So a tts would give you that kind of fit(on 710xx)? I was assuming that was sized down 1. I'm really on the fence on buying sammies, don't know if I should bite the bullet.
It looks to me like they are sized down 1 as well, but the OP was between sizes and asked which was better between sizing up a half size and sizing down a half size. I feel that between the two, sizing down a half size would be better, so that's what I told him.
