For THE LAST TIME, I tried on a pair of 34 ONE WASH 007's in the store and I could NOT GET THEM ON. THEY WERE TOO SMALL. I'm looking at my pair right now. They say "34." If they were one wash, I wouldn't fit in them...
It's like you're not even reading what I type.
botton line? this was a total waist of time and people need to pay attention to what they buy.
Yeah, a waste of MY time. You seem overly-concerned with my situation. Almost to the point of obsession. And it's weirding me out.
botton line (II): buy another brand and in the future ... PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU BUY
Why do you keep telling me to buy some other brand? I like the PBJ's. The 34's are just too tight in the crotch for me and I assumed that getting a size up and then shrinking them was the way to go. That was my original question! Why can't I just get a straight answer from someone?
Look, I assumed the guy in the store knew what he was talking about. I bought the pair he recommended. You seem to think I'm trying to blame BIG or PBJ for something? I'm not. I'm perfectly happy with the service I got. I just have a SIMPLE sizing question that I can't get answered...
raw pbj's with a one hour cold soak will shrink down 1.5" in the waist and inseam. if you do a hot wash you might get another 1/4-1/2" of shrinkage or up to 2" shrinkage out of the raw version only . if you buy the o/w version you can do a hot or cold soak or wash and they wont shrink at all ... hence the reason why their one-washed. do you follow this?
Thanks. I know what one wash are. But a 34 will NOT fit me. Too small. Already tried them on. So, I take it I should have gone with a 36 one wash?
34 raw: fit me (too tight in the crotch for comfort, though).
34 one wash: DO NOT FIT.
My jeans say "34." Hence, they are NOT one wash.
I don't know how much more simply I can put it.
This will be my last post here. I'll contact BIG and see what they say about it.
