Momotaro 702 Contest - Page 36

post #526 of 651

I just got my 0702s in the mail.  Ordered a 36 even though I could probably fit into a 35.  It will be interesting to see how the fades compare to those of you that sized down/even.

 

Would post fit pics but can't find a camera that's not my cell phone.

Phone fit pics are fine!

I wish I could relax in a cool, dry Arizona day. Try the sweltering, 110% humidity of the DEEP south. The air is hot and sticky and shade does not work.

I'm in the same position as you - need a 36 for the thighs while a 34 waist fits perfectly. Embrace it.


and any photos are always welcome.

Planning on it, just a question of fundage.

Okay guys I'm having a bit of a problem, my 702s have become uncomfortable in the thigh area. I wasn't planning on increasing the size of my thighs when I bought them but things change.

Not sure what I am going to do, if anyone has a pair of 702s in a size 33 they want to swap for a size 32 pm me. If that doesn't work out I am leaning towards selling them. frown.gif

I think there was a guy in the regular Momotaro thread who had a pair of BOM005s in a 33 that he was looking to swap out... check it.

I'm starting to feel like I should have sized up 1 also.  Afraid the waist will shrink some after my first wash and not stretch back out enough.  Already getting tight on me, low rise not helping either. (BOM003)

For a two year ordeal you have to account for you getting older and your metabolism slowing down. If you don't have an active lifestyle the space between 25 and 27 can be quite great. 

 

Most fat old men were once spry young bucks.

curious about this, you soaked the 702s, any particular reason? did they shrink at all?

I've taken (for better or worse) to soak any pair of jeans right off the bad to finish sizing and just get it out of the way. I've had supposedly sanforized pairs shrink on my a year into wearing (even beyond stretch-back-out-again possibilities), so now I just do it to everything.

My 702s did shrink in the inseam length. The waist, nothing noticeable. The thighs came in slightly too.

I think soaking initially is the way to go on all denim.  I've had sanforized jeans shink too much in the washing machine and it really bummed me out. Indigo loss and the affect on fades is so over exaggerated.  

 

 

I had a thought today when I was putting on my 003s.  Has anybody ever heard of getting the top button moved over slightly to alleviate some waist tightness?  Kind of like how on a suit you can tailor the top button over slightly to alleviate pulling.  I guess there'd be left over hole but it'd be worth it to continue wearing a jeans, maybe it could be patched too.

Makes sense, cheers

My only thought on repositioning the waist button would be that it compromises the structural integrity of the rest of the denim. You can patch, but there's still a fairly decent sized whole in where the fabric used to tug, and no longer is.
