Thanks guys. For what it's worth, they gave in about an inch after one wear and are now perfect size :)

currently working on pure blue japan xx012s and are currently at 6months.  thinking about getting a heavy weight denim for the winter but im not sure what to get.  any suggestions on a high quality raw denim thats about 20oz and slim cut? saw iron hearts but not sure if im willing to drop 400 on a pair, looking at the 2-300 range. however if there is something that i truely love and want, ill splurge! 

thanks guys

After too much deliberation I'm deciding between two jeans for my next purchase.

 

Japan Blue: http://www.blueowl.us/product/japan-blue-x-blue-owl-165oz-broken-twill-deep-blue-monster-tapered-model-jbo-420/

 

Rogue Territory: http://www.rogueterritory.com/shop/dark-stanton/

 

I know I want something over dyed and I know it comes down to personal preference, but someone tell me which one to buy. haha.

Does anyone have an idea about how much stretch I can expect from some 18oz Momotaro jeans? They're a little tight at the knee and upper block. But I like the look. The denim is stiff, of course, being sanforized 18oz raw denim.

Sanforised denim should only shrink minimally but will stretch back with weat..
The length might shrink a bit, so allow a couple of inches for that.

Momotaro are lovely jeans but it's up to you whether you want to size up one to be more comfortable

Hope this helps🐱

If they are so tight that it is constricting or will tire your legs out after prolonged wear, then do not purchase them. The upper block will not stretch, just the waist. Knees will stretch if you get them wet and do squats, which is probably the worst thing you can do to a pair of raw jeans, unless you like knee bulges. Denim does not stretch except in the rise and the waist, everywhere else is very very minimal. Thus, it's necessary to find jeans that fit your legs, or better yet, know what size fits your legs, so you know what can work for you and then go from there. The waist is probably last priority...important, yes... but the way a certain pair of jeans fit your body isn't barely going to change (unless they are unsanforized and you haven't soaked them yet).

Go with some unsanforized would be my first suggestion. After the soak, they will get heavier then their tagged weight and the weave will become much tighter then that of a sanforized jean. The weave being tighter means they will breathe less, keeping the warmth of your body insulated. I'd go with an 18 ounce - 20 ounce unsanforized jean. Personally I love my IH 22-301s, so I can suggest those, but those may be slightly more than you want to spend. The hard part is that most of these companies your most likely looking at, that produce high end Japanese selvage denim in heavier weights, do so in a relatively similar, arduous manner. Heavyweight denim is extremely labor intensive for various reasons, thus your going to be paying a premium.

 

Edit: I see that Samurai has recently released a pair that is 21 ounces unsanforized, that will shrink down to 24 ounces after the initial soak. Those would work quite well...they are 400 bucks though.

Thanks. I'm going to go up to a 33.

Hi I have a 34 pair of Naked and Famous sanforized denim I ordered online. I have now realized that I fit a 32 or 33 skinny and these are notably too large after a few wearings. Should I give them up, or is it possible to have them altered, or would that distort the layout/not have good enough of an effect. Here's a photo with belt and without (it slips off without, which is why I have to wear a belt to the point it looks pretty bad).

looks way too big

post #20833 of 21424

Yeah, is alteration with a tailor reasonable? Or just give it away?

ebay

Try and sell them in the Marketplace

You'll get more there than on eBay 🐱
