aj, I definitely agree with Kiya. Most raws, and especially FH will develop some initial hip flare and won't fit properly around the crotch and seat for a little while until the denim softens up.

FH denim is especially crisp, which requires a little more patience. Give them time.

just bought a pair of RJB 105bsp in 32...thanks for the sizing help! hope these are for me
post #3708 of 5785
Despite everyone's advice and my initial resolve to keep the FH 1001, I decided to sell them. The reason was that the front rise and the back rise post shrinking were a little too short for me. Is a front rise of 10" and a back rise of 14.5" how it should be after soaking. I was expecting around an inch more. Anyways, the rise felt too low to me and I was pulling up me jeans every now and then. Also it was snug on the thighs (11.75"). So now I am again looking for a pair of jeans. Any recommendations ? I need these measurements post soak Waist - 17" Thighs - 12.5" Knee - 9" Hem - 8.5" Front Rise - 11" Back Rise - 15.5" Inseam - 35.5" Thanks for reading and your help

Just a guess but have you tried Levis STF 501's, sz 34x38?

I think you should go for either one of these two jeans:
Iron Heart 634s (size 34)
Real Japan Blues RJB 105BSP (size 33)

Both of these would be would be good, they're both a straight leg classic jean with a good sized rise but yet both are form fitting in that it wouldn't look like you're wearing anything baggy.

Yeah, that'd be great if he were living in an area spilling over with public servants.

What are you thoughts about 3sixteen SL-200x Straight Leg Black in size 34? Are the measurements of the 3sixteen jeans correct and up to date. IIRC they changed their measurements.
post #3712 of 5785
Yup, the 3sixteen measurements are up to date with the new run.
post #3713 of 5785
Just received my FH 1001 yesterday. After soaking they fit great just like Kiya said they would. Thanks so much it was great working with you, and I'd definitely buy from you again!
