Hi,

 

I am thinking of purchasing a pair of 0701. I am a size 35 waist, would you recommend getting a tagged 34. Blue Owl has the waist measured to 35 but it says they will shrink an inch then stretch back out. Do they really stretch out to the original size and if so will they stretch a little more? 

 

Thanks

The waist will stretch back to or a little beyond raw measurements. Make sure you size the thigh area right.

Just to add another wrinkle to this; FWIW, I have the same 35-ish waist. Usually 34 - 34.5. I went w/ the 36 and have loved it.

Mistral is right though; get the thigh measurement right. That's why I sized up and it's worked very well. Thighs will make or break your pair.

Thanks guys, I spoke with Jay at Blue Owl and I went with the 34. I don't have super big thighs so hopefully these fit. Im really excited to start wearing these.

Would you recommend a cold or hot soak for the initial soak on the 0701? And for how long?

"AI" stands for "All Indigo" which means they used natural indigo to dye the jeans. So it's the 702 cut using natural indigo dye.

Ahhhh the expensive ones.

If they are really natural pure indigo dyed, they sell for around 80000Yen(=$800) at Momotaro store in Japan. I've seen them in person. They are so beautiful.

No, AI doesn't stand for All Indigo. It is a reference to a period in Japanese history which describes the art of dying textiles with natural indigo, so called Edo Ai.

Thanks for the correction. I had read that somewhere. I guess you can't trust everything you read on the internet (sarcasm). Another site says that AI is short for Aizome. Do you know how this and Edo Ai reconcile?

Ai means indigo in Japanese. Aizome is indigo dye. If it is pure natural indigo, it is called Sho-ai or Hon-ai in Japan to distinguish from synthetic indigo. However, many still doesn't know the difference.

 

 

Above PBJ jeans are natural indigo dyed. That's why they are relatively pricey, but they are inexpensive compared to other brands natural indigo dyed jeans.
