just copped a pair of 005's yesterday got emm hemmed while in BiG
Aug 30, 2008 @ 12:26
Whattup y'all...I'm feeling PBJs and I'm thinking of copping a pair soon. You mightve seen me in the fit thread asking the same question, but which model is closest to APC New Cures??...I'm looking for a slimmer fit. One thing im confused about are the measurements on . for the XX-005 joints, it lists that the leg opening is 9.25 inches for a size 34, while on for example, they list the leg opening for Nudie Thin Finns (which I thought were supposed to be skinny) as 15 inches...That doesnt make much sense. How do 005s fit in comparison to NCs or Thin Finns??

Aug 30, 2008 @ 15:24
Maybe they listed the total leg opening of the Thin Finns, which would make sense as that would equal 7.5.
Aug 31, 2008 @ 00:12
Ohhh ok I see, so in terms of the leg opening measurement in comparison to how they list it on would translate to 18.5 ...which is a bit looser than Thin Finns...but @ the same time I need some good Japanese denims and PBJs seem like the ones for me.

Are the XX-005 in black very hard to fade?

thought so, thank you

I'm sure being that this is a PBJ thread everyone is gonna be a PBJ enthusiast, but would y'all take PBJ > Eternal. I'm tryna narrow down my choices for my next pair of jeans

Aug 31, 2008 @ 12:57
...and, is a pre-soak necessary w/ PBJs ??

Aug 31, 2008 @ 13:14
^yeah it is unless you get the 1 wash
Aug 31, 2008 @ 13:17
So if I rock a size 34, according to BiG, I should get a size 32 'cause the waist runs way smaller than your true-size in the pre-soak measurements. But if I soak them wouldnt they get even smaller and end up mad tight??

Aug 31, 2008 @ 13:32
no the waist doesn't run small, get true to size. some people here and on sufu have even sized up 1. the only reason the measurements are bigger than the tagged size is because these are stf and shrink with a good soak.

so basically a 34 measures 36.5 but would shrink to 34 when soaked

Would BIG be able to taper these?
Sep 01, 2008 @ 14:08
i dont think they taper, pretty sure they only do chain stitching just like selfedge.
Sep 01, 2008 @ 14:36
if i order online could BiG shorten them for me?

damn, because im really feeling the PBJs but my waist size is 34 and the 8.75 leg is a lil bigger than what id want. thanks tho.

yep, they'll hem to any length you want with the addition of chain stitch

i think my pair were 35 if i remember correctly. also, i'm 5'6" and my 39" inseam on my sexi04s stack only to my mid ankle. the inseam on these is nothig to worry about.
Sep 02, 2008 @ 12:34
oh really? haha i was just looking at the chart on BiG and it says 38 inseam, but if it's 34 thats fine with me
Sep 02, 2008 @ 19:27
Just got a pair of XX-005's from a seller on SuFu. Can't wait, I'll post pre and post soak pics when I get them.
Sep 02, 2008 @ 21:42
Little preview of my PBJs at 2 months
Sep 03, 2008 @ 01:45
If I were to go true to size on a pair of XX-005, would I still get a nice slim cut out of it?

Sep 03, 2008 @ 02:28
uhh yeah? youre supposed to go true to size
Sep 03, 2008 @ 09:04
Alright just making sure, Thanks Jacob.
Sep 03, 2008 @ 20:59
dope PBJS up top^^
plzz post more pics of these denims cuz i wanna see more of the progress some people have on these jawns!!
Sep 06, 2008 @ 03:22
Just got these Thursday afternoon. I gave them a 50 minute hot soak (slightly warmer than shower temperature). I sat in them for the first 30 minutes then let them soak on their own for 20 more minutes. Took them out and hang dried them overnight. They were still mildly damp in the morning so I wore them to school to dry on me. Still waiting for them to stretch out that last bit then they will be perfect.

I went true to size on these, tagged a 29 raw. I'm about 5'7 maybe 5'8 and 125 pounds.



I've already gotten those knee boobs though, fucking c cups dangling from my legs. Anyways, I can't wait to see how these turn out after whatever minor stretching they may do. Definitely slubby denim, this shit is coarse. Great jeans though, for sure worth the price
Sep 06, 2008 @ 14:01
those look perfect. I wish i got 29s instead of 30.
Sep 06, 2008 @ 14:12
Hah, maybe we should trade. I was just thinking how I should have gone up 1 to get your fit.
