I want to buy the Pure Blue Japan XX-005 can anyone tell me how the waist size runs? - Page 3

Thanks for the pics ott. I bought the 005's today and just took some pics. I bought them in size 29 thankfully it was really about a 29.75 a little snug but they didn't have 30's, I wish it will stretch out about 1/3-1/2 of a size that would be the ideal otherwise they are amazing jeans. Also a cute girl said I looked good in them PBJ's seem to run a bit off because I tried the AI-001 in a size 30 but I could not button them up it felt like a 28. I also tried the 003's in a 30 and that waist size was true to size.

I bought them in blue in green that place is great I was in there for over 2 hours today, they have really cool staff I chatted with them for a bit, awesome shop. I also tried on the samurai's forgot which model number but it was the slimmest they make, the oni's also forgot which model but I liked the fit on me, might get them, and the studio D'artisan 103, they looked ok but I liked the oni better.

Me in my size 30s. Fits perfectly...not too tight, not too loose. The 28s I had were unbearable and looked like leggings on me. Judging from the way my 30s fit, the 29s probably would have been a bit too uncomfortable as well. Hopefully these won't stretch too much cause they're perfect as is.

bluetox: those look REALLY long on you, I assume that's because the XX-005s from BIG were the raw ones and mine are one-wash? Have you soaked em yet?

as far as fit goes, this is my rule of thumb for the pbj-xx005s.

if you have hips, size one up, because the jeans are low-rise so you need an extra inch to cover your extra hip width. i wear a 31 in most repros, so a 32 in the xx-005 is perfect for me.

if you don't have hips, get your regular size.

do people concur on this?

The jeans look great on all you guys. It's a good thing I have too much dry denim already...

No not yet, I'm still deciding if I should break them in for a couple of weeks first or cold soak them right away. I hate the summers it's to hot to wear jeans especially the 005's it's going to be 90+ F in NY this week. I'm dying to wear them too.

^^^ I probably wore them about 10 times so far, it hasn't streched out that much yet probably about .35 of an inch. These things are a beast I still havn't broken them in yet. They are still freaking stiff!!! I'm guessing after they break in they should stretch out more

Are the xx-005s on blue in green's website one wash or dry.
post #42 of 87
they're dry
post #43 of 87
So would I have to size down or true for the dry.

Hmm...so if my pair of RRDS are size 28, should I get a 28 or 29 in the 005?

Arrrgh...you people are giving me the itch. I hadn't thought about buying new jeans for a few weeks, now I want a pair of PBJ. Fack!!!
