post #586 of 1136

I've got a pair of XX-005's and I believe they're probably as slim as PBJs get without tapering. Before I bought 'em, I heard a lot of people saying that the thighs on PBJs are really tight, but I didn't find that to be the case, necessarily. I've had them for a long time now, a little over 2 years, and they've faded BEAUTIFULLY. If you'd like, I'll post some pictures that'll put everyone else's fades to shame :)

 

If you're looking to score something with a taper, the XX-011's are the ticket.

The 011 or the 013 are the slimmest PBJ offerings.

Love when this thread is bumped. I am working on my 009s right now, and have a fresh, raw pair of 003s waiting in my closet for when I have some room in the rotation.

PBJ thighs are generally slimmer for any given waist size. Plus you will usually have people size down somewhat drastically to compensate for the huge amount of stretch in a typical pair's waist. It most often results in the thighs being the problem area for sizing. If not, all power to you.

Gonna be buying a pair of XX007s. I wear a size 27 APCs (29" waist that stretched out to 31" or so) so should I grab a 29 or 30? Also, what's your opinions on hemming?

If your APC stretched to a 31, your waist measures thus. Get a 31 in the o/w or a 30 in the raws. Either will end up about the same. The raws never seem to shrink down to the o/w measurements all the way. So, sizing down in the raw isn't usually a problem.

BiG offers chainstitching. On the o/w model I'd go for it, but the raw pair needs to be soaked before anythings done to it.

Thanks. I'm still not sure if I want to try stacking them or go for a clean-cut hemmed look. I'll probably just go back in this thread and check out what other's 007s look like.

Oh, when I got another pair of jeans hemmed by BiG they gave me the scraps back. I assume they do that with jeans you purchase from them too right?

That is correct. One really nice habit of BiG is that they always give you back the hemming scraps.

I lurked the PBJ threads here and on other forums when researching and found very little about 009 fitting. I went for it anyway, sized down from a 30-31 and got a 29 xx-009, one wash. They just arrived and I think I made the right call for the fit I wanted, so I figured I'd post up the fit pics in case anyone else is looking for the same thing:

Back
Side


Sorry for crappy quality, just wanted to show the fitting. Like I said I'm normally 30-31, but I sized down cause I wanted a slightly slimmer fit, but not slim like the 007. The waist is really tight but I figure it'll stretch to be comfortable, and the thighs a bit as well. Gorgeous denim biggrin.gif

^^pretty accurate representation
i did the same with my 009's. sized down and got the 28 ow for a slimmer fit. still considering a slight taper, though.
i'm about 2 weeks in and so far so good, though i'm having a serious cock bulge issue (whatup colabear) and the way the lap creases are settling only seems to accentuate it.
is this something that will go away with time?
or does anyone know a good way to combat this?

i know a way to combat it. you will need a bottle of vodka and a sharp chef's knife. PM for detailed instructions.

Yeah i notice that a little bit as well. I think it's just cause there isn't enough room yet with the tight waist and thighs, the fabric balloons a little in between. needs some more time to stretch and settle. don't forget that women love the cock bulge though

003/9 is my favorite of the PBJ fits. Still slim, but not as tight when downsizing as the 005/11. Good call on sizing down one - did so myself from my normal 34 to a 33 and I've been wearing them for months.

No bulge-issues for me though...confused.gif

So I'm looking at the pbj 007 deep indigos and getting a little weirded out in sizing. I read through the thread but I'm just going to ask and try to put my mind at ease.

I have a pair of size 31 Nudie Average Joes that fit well. They've streached out to a 35 waist, so looking at the pbj charts I would want to get either a 32 or 33 in the 007 (raw). Could anyone tell me if I am completly off-base here? The denim looks awesome, really want to pick up a pair...just trying to make sure I grab the right size smile.gif

Rather than comparing denims, it's easiest to just measure yourself and compare your numbers against the posted ones in BiG. I would advise going with a o/w model if you're unfamiliar with the process. The concept of simply never washing your jeans to have them not shrink is fairly foolish. They'll need to be washed some time, so either get the o/w model or be prepared to initially soak and shrink the raws.

What's more, the thighs are typically the trouble spot sizing the slimmer pbj models. Assuming your waist is 35 inches, I'd only go down to maybe a 33-raw at most, because beyond that you'll have sizing trouble elsewhere. It will all depend on that thigh measurement, because it is true that the waist on pbj denim will typically stretch a fair amount.

So, endstory, measure yourself and get the one-wash that lines up. Otherwise, based on your measurements, I wouldn't advise sizing down in the raws more than probably one (aka to a 34, assuming you measure 35) unless you've got really thin legs. If you could post or pm measurements, I could help you out more specifically.
