3sixteen Denim Series, Bracelets, Shirts... - Page 113

post #1681 of 1829
I've have ST-100's (34), SL-130's (33), and 30bsp's (33). Using BIG measurements all three are right around 17.5 in the waist and 12.5 in the thigh after frequent wear. I love all the cuts and am amazed at the quality and difference of each.

After having rolled them up after a few wears, I decided to roll them up higher. Then I noticed the lines in the denim from where they were rolled. So I figured this was a job for my steamer. I turned the jeans inside out and flattened out the leg. As I applied steam, I pulled the denim to keep it's shape.

I was pleasantly surprised. Seems like the hot steam actually caused the denim to contract, thereby reducing the inseam. I measured and sure enough they are now 35". I can live with this length. 37" was just too long. 35" offers nice stacks and no need to roll them up.

Just wanted to pass along my findings. Keep in mind, YMMV. I used a Jiffy Esteam ($69). Nothing fancy.

Thanks for the tip off - I'm having a pair of jeans made with a 35" inseam, but this may stack too much for me...I just asked for this length to allow for shrinkage.
If they're too long after washing I'll try steaming them!smile.gif

My apologizes for the photo quality (no lighting in my apartment & first time really using a DSLR)  & possible stupid question.

This is my first pair of raw denim, these jeans are my work horses but after browsing the thread a bit I've never seen anyone else with this issue

as you can see the bottom right corner of the leather pack has started lifting up, not sure if this is normal or not? only 5~ months of casual wear.

Looks like the thread on the bottom of the patch has busted, it happens rarely but it does happen. Shoot us an email at info@3sixteen.com with that photo and we'll figure out a solution.

Just a follow up to my previous post, I have now worn the ST-130's for a couple of weeks straight (even slept in them a few times). No soak, no wash. They have conformed to my body quite well. However, I want to advise others that though these are marked 36, they fit me comfortably, and I run a 38-39 inch waist. Currently 37.5 - 38". They've stretched a bit, so I guess I'll be soaking or steaming them once they start needing a belt.

Just a heads up. I'd keep this in mind when ordering.

I'm torn between 3 pairs of jeans for my next pair (I Have to break my jeans ban!!!)

1)Momotaro - custom jeans made from Japan Blue heavyweight denim - great fit but thick as a carpet!
2)custom jeans from Kaihara denim - better fit but am too impatient to wait "years" to fade (although the results are spectacular!)
3)3sixteens from the new collection - really they're sizing up so they won't be a great fit, but the denim looks so good I almost don't care

On 5th Feb 2014 I started a jeans ban until 2016 but reading a denim forum every night just makes you want to own trillions of pairs of jeans!

Hopefully I'll get new jeans on my birthday or for Christmas this year, and just buy a couple of pairs next year.

That's good for me - I broke the last jeans ban 24 times!!!!

I think I want the 3 sixteens even if they're too big....the denim is gorgeous and the cuts are great (all of my custom jeans have been made from the pattern of a worn to death pair of 3 sixteens:)smile.gifsmile.gif)

If anyone wants to trade their 34 st's for my new 33 st's I posted a thread in the bst section. I miss my old pair and thought these would work but I gained some weight.

post #1690 of 1829

Or just sell me some used beat up ST's in a 34 let me know

post #1691 of 1829

I concur. I had a button pop on my 3Sixteens. New buttons were dispatched swiftly. Great service.
