Music to my ears man! I am pretty excited at this point, these jeans look absolutely brilliant.  Will post pics when they arrive!

I'm 5'11" and fairly stocky, but athletic.  So the question is, which of the following do you think would fit best:

1) 0202 - 34" waist

2) 0702 - 34" waist

3) 0702 - 36" waist

I guess I'm looking for the slimmest fit possible without it being ridiculously tight on the thighs etc.  I would therefore ideally like to get the 0702, not only because they're slimmer fitting but also they're easier to find online. I understand that Momo's don't shrink too much, but I'm still worried that it might be easier getting into Fort Knox after the first wash...

sometimes "ideal" does not mean it's practical. the 202 has a longer back rise ... IMO better cut for your built.

I've got the 702s and I think you'll love 'em.  Mine have been through their first wash.  I have to admit that they're stiff as heck at the beginning and not very comfortable.  They are comfortable now but that's after six months of wear and one wash.

 

But....the fadez are absolutely incredible on these.  Electric blue!

xposting my fits for my 701 SU1 @W34 & 702 @W33.

701s were comfort slim from the getgo & shrunk a bit more after a couple of years after multiple washes. just glad i sized up on them

702s were a bit tight to start with. loved the denim on this, but after the 4th soak i decided i don't want to deal with stretching them out each out each & every wash, down the line ... so, let them go.

recently, i just special ordered a pair of 202SP w/c i future-sized @W34, so i can enjoy them much longer icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Just got my 201's in the mail and they look beautiful. I'm very happy with the fit, a little bit of extra in the waist but not overmuch and it fits nicely around the legs through the taper. About to go do my first hot soak of raw denim ever - any last tips I should know about the process? Basically just planning on sitting in a tub of hot (105 deg F) water for an hour then taking them off to hang dry, am I missing anything? Can I shrink the leg opening more if I let the lower part of the leg soak a little longer?

post #3145 of 3349
unless it's a personal choice, you don't need to be in them to soak wink.gif
as for selective soaking to target-shrink the leg opening, it's an exercise in futility ... shrinkage is constant.
post #3146 of 3349
Yeah - agree^^ If you're just soaking them and not worried about how they shrink (dry) then no need to sit in a tub. It's the drying/shrinking process where you'd want to be wearing them if sizing is that much of a concern.

Should they be soaked inside out our not our is that irrelevant?

At this point it's not a huge deal. If you're not agitating them (ie soaking them via a hot washing cycle), then turning them inside out to protect from indigo loss is so minimal there's really no reason.

Is this a good fit?? The jeans are beautiful but they're baggier than I expected, especially around the waist...will they/can I shrink them much?

Again, absolutely beautiful jeans, just wonder if they're too big...!
