So these shrink 2" in the waist and 1.25 in the thigh? That seems like a lot. Would they shrink that much if you only do a 30 minute soak to get the initial shrinkage out? My jeans are usually tagged 34 and stretch to a 35 after hot soak and then wearing for a little while. Should I go with the 34 or 33?

well the pbj's are unsanforized, so shrinking down 2 sizes is probably the most it will shrink, then they'll stretch out about 1 inch max after a couple of wears from what i've heard.
if you compare a 30 minute soak with a 2 hour soak, there's very little difference between the amount of shrinkage, just change the temperature of the water (ex. cold - minimum shrinkage, boiling - maximum shrinkage)

i think i might just go with 28, heard they'll fit perfect, if not tight

28 sounds right, good luck.

If you normally wear a 34, you should get the same in PBJ...and yes, that is what they will shrink to after initial soak. Here are measurements of O/W PBJs:
33 - 33-1/4" waist, 10" rise, 35-1/2" inseam, 11-3/4" thigh, 8-3/4" knee, 8-3/4" leg opening
34 - 34-1/4" waist, 10" rise, 35-1/2" inseam, 12" thigh, 8-7/8" knee, 8-7/8" leg opening

Alright, so most of my denim is 30s and they run rather snug around the waist. I really wanna buy some PBJ xx 005 raw so should I buy true or down 1 size?

I'm about 5'7 125 lbs.

My 005 has stretched about 2.5 inches in the waist (though I wear my jeans pretty low...) I would highly suggest AGAINST sizing down unless you're legs are skinny as hell.

Who here owns a pair of XX-005 black raws? I sold my black 018 Somets recently and is now contemplating another pair of black raws from either PBJ, W+H or Somet again. Then again Somet seem to be getting rather popular on this site so perhaps I may exclude them. So my final choice then is either the W+H slim black raws or PBJ XX-005 black raws.

hey guys, i just got my pair of PBJs xx-005 raws in size 28. friend went to new york and he grabbed me a pair while he was there. this is my very first pair of jap raws, i've only owned a pair of APC new standards, so excuse the noobiness. btw, the jeans are flawless in quality, the denim is wonderful and so is the craftsmanship put into it, although you all would probably know that. im super excited on how these will turn out...
anyways, i put the jeans in the tub for a soak to shrink it down. i took it out after an hour in warm/hot water (hot, but warm enough to leave your hand in the water). after trying them on, there was still some space in the waist and I measured the waist BiG style and they were 29" (waist was 30.5" unsoaked). Im true to size 28 and i was just wondering if another soak with hot water (hottest the tap will go) would shrink the jeans down to 28.
thanks

I have a pair of Nudies Average Joes in size 29 x 34. I'm 6'0 and around 145 pounds, should I get size 29 or size 30? Thanks for the input.

Guys. There is such detailed sizing advice in here. You're gonna have to figure it out. It's never as simple as that. Everyone's bodies are different and everyone has slightly different fit preferences. Look at the various measurements in this thread, Blue in Green, and the sizing advice given and take the plunge

this assesment is dead on. this is why I'm sellin mine.
