Momotaro 702 Contest - Page 24

post #346 of 651

Yo peeps, anybody have experience with brands that sell a raw version and a one wash version?  Is there much difference between them in the long run?  I've decided on a pair of PBJ XX-13 as my denim to rotate to and since I can only buy online from across the country I'm skeptical of going raw.  Even though I did unsanforized for these 003s, I had a guy like Jay helping me out a ton.  On the downside, there are no one wash versions in my size so I guess I don't have a choice!  Please share any advice or experiences, thanks.

The measurements given of the o/w versions of any jean on BiG can be taken to represent the absolute baseline of how tiny that pair in a given size may shrink. The o/w factory process by PBJ gets them shrunk down as far as they'll go. Raw versions, for whatever reason, rarely get down that small - you'd have to hot soak that thing into the sun and then stick it in the dryer for who knows how long.

Don't be afraid of ordering the size you need in raw versions - just compare the final o/w measurements to anticipate how small it could become at max shrinkage.

Removing you would be difficult, it's easier if you just buy a pair now. satisfied.gif

I see myself on the list too. Caltex are you sponsering my pair? You don't have to rush. Just get me the bomo6 wink.gif tyvm

I don't even mind being a couple months late. That handicap will be even more motivating.
