While PBJs do decently stretch in the waist, I like to play "dispeller" of denim rumors. In general, if denim doesn't fit you well off the bat, they don't fit. You have the raw pair (unsanforized, obviously oversized at this point), which when shrunken down should equal the measurements you're looking for. Especially in slimmer jeans, the thighs won't give as much as the waist will.

Honest opinion is to keep the 32s, shrink them down, and enjoy them as they wear in, assuming the measurements of a "pre-shrunk" 32 would be decent on you. They will eventually shrink down to that size, and it doesn't do a lot of good living in fear that they'll be too small or constrictive again if they ever touch water.

Because in the course of their life, crap happens, and they will need to be washed. I've had PBJs that continue to shrink down after a 3rd or 4th exposure, me having thought they'd already been all shrunk down.

Just by way of warning, man.

Either way - do post pics when you're set up, and hope you love the fit. The xx013 is a fantastic pair.

Who's got the nc-013 black? Calling lesamourai. Anyone besides BiG stocking these?
post #802 of 1090
I think that's the pair I have. Sorry though, dunno any other stockists, just got mine from BiG.
post #803 of 1090
I believe BiG is the only authorized US-stock of PBJ. They'll be your only bet domestically.

I am waist 31. Previously I own a size 30 apc petit standard but they stretch out so much that I am thinking to switch to another jeans. 

So, I am planning to buy pure blue japan XX007, however, I am so confused about the size chart in BIG. 

Can anyone suggest me on what size should I go for?

and does PBJ stretch out a lot like APCs do?

Thanks so much for you guys help!!!!!

Fit Check on these?  Just got these last week but haven't had a chance to wear/take pics. They are a size 30 raw, 32 inch waist that fits perfect as is. Thing is they are unsanforized. I'm not concerned about the waist though, I'm more concerned about the thighs. The measuring chart says they should be 11.5 inches but I'm measuring them at barely over 11 inches. Worries me a little because they are so tight and they will shrink. Strange enough my Blueowl x Momotaro 003s measure about the same in the thighs and they don't feel tight at all. I'm thinking it's just because the denim is in its raw state and I've forgotten how tight/stiff they can be. I'm remembering why people think we're crazy. Thoughts?

This can be a real problem. I made the mistake of buying some unwashed PBJ-007s that fit perfectly. The second I washed them, the thighs got way too tight. If I had to do it over again, I would have: a) just bought washed, or b) tried on washed in the size I was interested in and then bought that size in unwashed, expecting major shrinkage.

Pretty much my same exact situation.

damn :(.  I'm a little let upset because the measurements don't match up to the listed measurements on sight.  11 inch thighs and 7 inch leg opening instead of 11.5 and 7.5.  This would be perfect after the shrinkage is out but now I'm worried.  Hearing mixed things about stretching but I've personally never experienced much thigh stretch.  There was only 1 left in the 32 one wash version, hopefully it's still there.  I should just exchange them and play it safe.
