PBJ o/w are usually the smallest a given pair will ever be - in fact from what I've read, it's rare that doing your own soaks/washes ever result in as much shrinkage as buying the o/w right off the bat.

I'd take the o/w measurements as the absolute base line - the lowest the denim could go.

EL is right on.

011 is very forgiving @waistband.
if you're aiming for comfort slim, you can pick up the tighest size you can button up in O/W version__ w/c would prolly be a TTS.

but, if you're going for slimmest, it's an automatic size down 1 in RAW__ possible SD2 .... if NO "thigh" issues

Getting rid of those cuffs after first wash ( maybe this year, if I find the time to hit the beach ... )

Damn I love that fit. I'm trying to shoot for that right now. Might just go for O/W and take the guess work outta the whole purchase.

@ribkin is that the 011? how did you size?
post #727 of 1136
^^ Size 34 O/W , my true waist is around 35' so maybe TTS

If they're falling like that now, it's because there's been some stretch ( up to 35.5 ~ maybe even 36 ), but thighs probably don't change much

I don't wear them much , beat them up pretty bad whenever I do

Probably the fastest changing jeans I own

Anyway, if you have your eyes set on a pair, I'd just worry about thigh and knee measurements

Can't go wrong following IIIrd's advice

what do u guys think?
post #729 of 1136
I think it looks great. Your pre-soak looks like the post-soak of your previous 011s.

Throw up some post-soaks when you got the chance. I bought a sized-down one raw 011 just now from BiG. I always thought that place had free shipping?!

my size 30 pre & post soak fit almost exactly the same.. soak them while wearing them for almost 40mins hahahha..
what do u guys think?

Personally, on the post soak 30, I think you're getting a bit of pocket pull that results in "mangina".... but could just be the photo.

Going to say I personally favor the look of the 31 post soak, but to each their own.

hahaha appreciate ur honest opinion man..

yep for day 1, its quite tight.. but im sure after a month or so, this baby gonna fit perfect biggrin.gif

size 31 a bit too loose for day 1 imo..

I'm afraid I'd have to go with the other folks, jehuti. I think I like the overall fit of the 31 better. What temperature did you soak your jeans in and how long?

He mentioned a 40 minute wearing-them-in-the-tub soak. Assume it was warm.

hahaha.. appreciate ur opinion man.. i also think its too tight but i think im ok with that coz pbj will stretch a bit

actually they stretch already after a full day of usage.. i can button up without much effort not like before.. and theres room in my thigh area now 

for size 31, i soak them in the bathtub with hot water (maybe 50-60degree) for almost 1,5hour coz they are waay too big in the beginning.. they shrunk quit alot after soak

for size 30, i only use tap water coz my pre soak fit is pretty tight already

im sure my size 30 will stretch to 31 post soak fit in no time :D
