Dude, if you can't button them up right now, you won't be able to later. Those are unsanforized and will shrink down at most 2 inches in the waist beyond where they are already. That in addition to Momotaros being difficult to stretch in the first place and I'd exchange for a size up or two. Words of warning.

That dude made a HUGE mistake buying those!!!  I mean, I guess he's ok if he never plans on washing and is actually able to stretch them enough to button

 

You need to hurry and return those before you have put too much wear into them and BO wont exchange them for you.

Yeah size up and for F' sakes it's called an edit button. (like Caltext said)

question about soaking and shrink to fit..

I've never soaked a pair of dry jeans upon arrival...always worn dry for at least a year before doing a wash or ocean jump.

what do you guys think the benefit is of doing a soak right away? pure fit?

I thought that doing an initial soak might negatively impact the fades i'd get later on but perhaps i'm wrong.

water is not the enemy__ it's your jeans' friend.
it drains out the starch & tempers the fabric+ thread
.... ie, if you plan on keeping them longer than the 1st couple of washes.

On STF denim (Unsanforized) it's pretty much a necessity to soak first so they can get down to the size they're going to end up. You can go forever without it, but then you will always know in the back of your mind that they're going to shrink incredibly any time they hit water. Once that happens, it can ruin your pair. Sure, fades will be "misplaced" but worse than that they usually WON'T FIT, b/c people try to cram themselves into the smallest possible size and then they shrink down even futher.

Dude needs to return those jeans fast before they have any where whatsoever and get a bigger size, or you're going to be seeing a Midnight Warrior hugely discounted on the B/S in about six months when his wife/gf accidently washes his jeans, or he gets stuck in a rainstorm, or spills something and then has to wash them and they turn out 2 inches too small.

thanks argentino....I've only "wash" in the ocean these days...so hopefully shrinking wouldn't be too much presuming i leave the jeans on too dry. Would you say that pre-soaking has any affect on the quality of the fades?


on an unrelated note, stumbled across this gem of an article...enjoy.

Great picks, but you need to size up! You only need to size up one size though. I have a size 31 holding for you now, call me and we will make the swtich. It is an unsanforized fabric and a tag 31 will be able to button and will still be tight on the waist line, but you will be fine. You will probably need to wear them without soaking for the first week or two.

As for the advice on soaking, it is not 100% necessary to soak unsanforized denim. It is a personal choice and it depends upon the fabric. Some unsanforized fabrics will shrink 2"-3" in the inseam length, some will only shring .5". Momotaro fabric does not shrink that much. It is very tightly woven, dense, and simply does not move. It also will not stretch much for the same reason. My advise is to size up one size, wear them without soaking until you feel they have stretched out enough, and then enjoy. Soak/wash when you feel the time is right.

....FYI, I am currently 6 weeks in on one of the collabs wearing a tag 31 that measures 32.4" in the waist right now and has also stretched .4" in the thigh. Brand new I could not button the top 2 buttons, now can button easily. They have never been soaked and I do not plan to soak them any time soon. I am 6' and 160lbs. I hope that gives you a bit more perspective.

Good luck with those. Heard they are super comfortable, but don't fade that much. Lovely jeans though.

Thank you for bringing me to light with the unsanforized jeans and the way your  momos are treating you. I was trying to decide whether or not to return them for a different size.

post #1874 of 3350
Dude, follow Jay's advice and return them... how is this a difficult decision?
post #1875 of 3350

Already boxed up for an exchange
