The PBJ cut closest to the APC PS is probably the XX-005. The XX-007 and XX-010 have the same cut as well.

i think that the Pure Blue Japan XX-013 are closer to the apc ps, wider thighs and tight taper

The fried is box; the box is fried.

I'm bout to cop the 005 since that's pretty much the only ones I can afford. These are gonna be my first raw denim so can you guys tell me what to expect? I've read that the 005's are slim with a bigger leg opening and that I have to soak them in hot water to shrink or cold water to have them stay the same for an hour. Anything else I should know?
Jun 04, 2011 @ 19:13
^seems like u got everything pretty much down. but yeah the leg opening is pretty damn big, had to taper mine.

If I buy them of BiG can I send them back to get them tapered? Or do I have to find my own tailor

As far as I know, BiG will hem but not taper jeans, so you'll have to find someone on your own. If there is no one local to you that can do this, try Denim Doctors at the Hollywood Trading Company. They do a great job, and they accept mail-ins.

Plenty of PBJs come raw. I think more of their models are available raw than one-washed.

~1 year 2 months


These are beautiful man, how did you size?
Jun 10, 2011 @ 21:34
those are beauties you have going guys. Can't wait for my momo's same parent brand to really set and start showing the color spectrum.

i went down 1
Jun 12, 2011 @ 15:54
I'm afraid to go down 1.. was it real tight?
Jun 12, 2011 @ 18:18
^i was able to size down 2 on them and they feel baggy on me. i sagged them a lot though. im pretty sure sizing down 1 would be fine

^ Cool thanks.
Jun 22, 2011 @ 23:30
I'm about to pull the trigger and buy the 005's in 32 but my only concern is why is the inseam so long? the inseam on my levis is only 32 and the 005's are all 37's. I'm 6'2 so is it going to be too long on me?
Jun 22, 2011 @ 23:39
My 005 shrunk to 34.5 after a soak, which should be good for you if you're 6'2
Jun 22, 2011 @ 23:44
Wow thats a big shrink...how much did everything else shrink? cuz the 32's are only a little bit longer on every measurement than my levi's besides the inseam.
Jun 22, 2011 @ 23:45
Well they might be 35, every site says they shrink 2'', an inch in the waist, and .5'' everyelse
Jun 22, 2011 @ 23:50
fuck...the only thing is that my levi's are a little too skinny now (i measured after i washed them) so after i soak the 005''s the measurements are going to be almost identical.. probably off by about .5 or smaller. should i just buy the 005's in 33s?? \


here are my measurements.

waist-34
front rise-10
back rise-13
upper thigh -11
knee-8
leg opening-7
inseam-31

Is the raw better then the one wash?
Jun 26, 2011 @ 18:25
^Imo, one wash and raw don't really differ in any major way. My one wash 007s stretched out to around the same measurements as the the raw 007s.

Jun 26, 2011 @ 21:52
did they stretch out alot? cuz i went true to size and i think im fucked if they stretch alot
Jun 27, 2011 @ 13:12

They are the exact same thing, except the one-wash has been pre-shrunk for you. One is not better than the other.
