this is my first pair of unsanforized denim...what a hassle lol

I think you should just cut them and make them into shorts.

And then, depending on how much you cut off for your shorts, I would soak the other half you cut off and make some sort of cool bracelets or anklets out of them. You could even cut the denim up into little pieces and make keychains to sell to others on the forum.

Dibs on a key chain (if you do that.)

This would be your best option.

snuff_daddy,

That fit looks perfect. I think hot-soaking it won't hurt too much (e.g. become totally skinny).

I think this was where you went wrong. You bought a tapered cut, and that is the smallest part of a tapered cut.

Bought a pair of the PBJ x Take5 TBJ510 yesterday. They're based on the XX005 cut. Perfect fit IMO. Some pics here. Sorry for the poor quality. Lent out my DSLRs for the week. Pre-soak: Post-soak:

fit looks off..
it looks like its being sucked into you.
post #204 of 1136
meaning too tight or too loose?
post #205 of 1136
he means the denim looks like its being sucked in your ass hows the material compare to standard 005s?
post #206 of 1136
it feels about the same, maybe slightly slubbier. It's also 14.5oz. And I just noticed the sucking part. I don't know if that's temporary or if it's the sizing or if it's just the cut, but everywhere else feels fine to me. My ass does protrude in a very prominent way before a steep drop to nothingness though, that might be why. Any clues from your part?

yeah....005's denim is 14.5 oz. how exactly is the denim different. from the pictures it looks the same. is it really "slubbier?"

looks good from the front but the ass looks jacked looks like the back rise is way too long and the front rise is too short causing the front to pull edit: actually I think it'll be fine after a few wears. Show some pics after some progress!
