Momotaro 702 Contest - Page 39

post #571 of 654

Got a pair o PBJ XX-012 and they are great.  Can't deal with the BOM003s low rise anymore, don't think I'll be wearing them again for a good amount of time.

what part of the rise is bothering you the most? unless you low ride then the crotch will always be at the crotch even if the rise changes.  the rise just changes where they sit on you, how high or low on your waist/hips

I wore them as low as the waist would allow me but my thighs have gotten bigger and everything's just too tight up there now.

Apparently someone else is in the same boat that I was in.

i was just thinking this.  considering a wash - not much wear but starting to feel like they need it.

will probably give them a wash soon.  

 

So here is some updates, not wearing these as much as I could - but the good thing about that is that they should last longer.

 

Nothing too special.

 

As they are from camera, no white balance / color / contrast adjustment

Those are way too early for a wash in my opinion. Also... This thread is dead.

Is there anything in particular I should be concerned with if I want to taper my 702s? Is it going to wreck the selvedge somehow?

It certainly could if you use a tailor not familiar with selvedge. I would use a place like Railcar to do the work to ensure it is done correctly
