Best bet is probably to check the measurements on a site like Denimio.  I only have experience with their tapered slim cut (XX-012/013/AI-003) and APC PNS.  I think that cut or the cigg slim cut/015 could possibly work for you.

I've come here for advice. 

I've always been a skinny dude, so I never thought I'd be saying this....

 

A year ago my size 30 XX-005 stopped fitting my thighs.  This is from doing squats in the gym.

 

I switched to size 33 XX-013 which right off the bat has a 1/2" fuller thigh than the 005, and this pair's waist is 3 times bigger!!!

 

Well... now this pair is getting tight in the thighs, not to mention the waist is loose.

 

Now, I am still not big and muscley my any means, I'm just a 6'3 190lb with slightly more muscle than I used to have.  :)

 

 

 

I hate to switch brands, because I love everything about my PBJs.  The color, the slub, the leaf.

PBJs thighs are annoyingly slim in basically all their cuts. Downside of the brand.

I just discovered they have a fuller cut model, the 003.  Still not sure if it will work well though.  It's frustrating to spend a lot of $$ on clothes that take a long time to break in, and you can't wear them by the time they start to look their best.

The pbj 18-15s fit really well on me. They are anti fit and high rise. That is the new specs that blue in greend used for the jeans. I'm a big dude 5 foot 9 and 275. Now I am thinking of getting the regular pair and be done with the selvedge thing.

Whats up guys, been lurking these forums for awhile and decided to join to ask for some advice. I bought some xx12 about 11 months ago. I want to get them hemmed. Now is it not a good idea to get them hemmed now since the stacks set in or it doesn't really matter?

Thanks guys I appreciate it.

You should get them hemmed. They still will stack.

Having a hard time deciding between XX-005 and XX-013.. I like a slim but not skinny fit. Leaning towards the 005 but slightly worried that the cuff will be baggy. No pair of ideal fitting jeans currently to compare to.. Wonder if anyone can chime in.

@Mimik007

Welcome to the Forum.

It depends whether you want stacks or not. Stacks are created by extra leg length. If you don’t like the »stack-aethetics« have them hemmed to your size. It doesn’t matter for how long you have worn the jeans.

I have a pair of X013. Been wearing them for about three month. My original plan was to get them hemmed, like all my jeans (always a good idea to wear new jeans for a while before hemming). However, I can see that the stacks will look particularly good on this pair. Now I might change my plan.

Also I'm curious as to why my xx012 aren't as slubby as most of the jeans I see in here and social media. I had to soak the jeans 4 months in because an accidental spill off bbq sauce. At that time they were starting to get some slub action. And after that they just stayed the same. Could it be that there is some slubbiness going on but the dye got into the white due to the wash? So they're pretty much unnoticeable.

Because they use natural indigo. Natural indigo when it penetrates white weft is hard to fade. It will take a while. Indigo pigment fades faster than natural indigo, that is what most brands use.
post #1228 of 1234
Wow, I'm a year in with these jeans with 1 soak and no washes so I would have to wait quite awhile to actually see some fades?
post #1229 of 1234
It depends on your climate bro. If you live in a hot area like California or Thailand yes it won't be long to get fades. If you live where live, Maryland it will take area while. Just wash your jeans dude and don't buy them extra tight. This will cause blowouts in the crotch.

I just got mail from Okayama Denim stating:

With a heavy heart, we regret to inform all of our trusted clients that starting on March 7th, 2017 (11pm JST-Japan Standard Time), we will be adjusting the prices for Pure Blue Japan products to reflect the new international pricing https://www.okayamadenim.com/blogs/news/pbj-new-international-pricing that the brand has put forth.

 

Looking at the pricing, it seems to just align them with Blue In Green and Blue Owl (both of which I've bought PBJ from, and all three offer hemming anyway).  Still, it looks like this gives a couple of days to buy at the old lower prices.  Just a heads-up.  (I don't figure this belongs in the Sales Alert thread because it's kind of an inverse sale, right?)
