Fit looks great as is. Would definitely size up one or exchange for one wash in same size availability permitting.

BiG just dropped the new xx-012 today - the 11/13 model in deep indigo. Looks great.
post #814 of 1090
Nothing available in larger sizes frown.gif. I'm gonna keep them and stick to cold water soaks/hand washes only.

The XX-012s are gorgeous. Glad they made the leaf detail dark blue like the fabric. White stood out too much to me. I'd like to get them some day!

Good luck they look good.

Wow, those XX-12s are some very blue looking jeans indeed.
post #816 of 1090

After reading all 55 pages of this thread I'm convinced I want to pull the trigger on a pair of O/W XX-005s. I'm totally confused about sizing though. I'm in Australia so have to buy online unless anyone knows of a local retailer?

 

There seems to be a lot of conflicting info on fit, the general consensus being that upper thigh and knee sizes being the most important for the O/Ws.

 

I guess the best fitting pair of jeans that I've got currently are Acne Roc Raws. I bought them 32/32 and have been washed once after roughly 4 months wear. Now this is where things get confusing for me. I measure their waist as per BiG's instructions at 17.5, I mesure my waist where they sit on my at 34 to 34.5 and I would stay they are actually too big for me in the waist. When I have them on, I can pull them out from my belly at the fly and measure 2 inches from belly to edge of jeans. What the hell is going on? If I were to buy these jeans again I would have got 31s. Do I suck at measuring? I've done it like 5 times to ensure I'm not tripping.

 

The upper thigh and knee measurements on the Acne's are 11 and 8 inches respectively. Based on those measurements alone I'm guessing a O/W 32 would suit, but I'm worried I won't even be able to do them up around the waist based my actual waist measurement of 34.

 

Can anyone with experience help me out? Ideally I would like a slightly more relaxed fit than the Roc's so the lower rise and slightly wider thigh sans taper sounds like it could be a winner for me but I also hate jeans that don't fit really well around the waist.

the raw waist for a size 32 is 33.75. your o/w pair's waist will easily be able to stretch out to that and a little beyond.

Gave my raw 13s a cold soak for 45 minutes.  Everything's pretty good except the knee measurement.  Will it stretch out at all?  Wish the 31 was available!  I think I could live with this though.

Yes, they will stretch out as you wear them.  Knees are one of the places that stretch out the most, especially on slim jeans like the 013's

Is CorLection in Sydney still around? I was in Sydney a few years ago and they stocked almost exclusively Japanese brands

Cool. If I could squeeze into them there is a good chance they would fit really well after a few wears hopefully. Worse comes to the worst I could lose a bit of tub, I tore my ACL last month and the inactivity combined with depression visits to In & Out and Five Guys caught up with me.

Good call ysb, it looks like they've got them. I'll call up today to confirm. $360 with tax though. Damn. $230 off rakuten.

Interested in the xx-017's and xx-018's but haven't been able to find any progress pics out there. How new are these things, and are there any pics out there showing signs of what a nice, faded pair might look like?
post #823 of 1090
I'm a true 32 waist (wear this in epaulet/other slim to true fit trousers). Measures look good for a 32 O/W - should I opt to size down for a 31 O/W to flex out?

Any advice for 005 vs. 007 for first pair?

Thank you,
post #824 of 1090
All depends on the thigh measurement. Get that right first.

Thank you,

I have two pairs of PBJ that are essentially worthless because the fit is shit on me. Thighs are slim. One pair I have is the 005 and I'd advise against it. The thigh is so slim that the fit is more of a flare leg/bell bottom. Looks like lady pants. I walked around looking ridick for weeks hoping for a stretch. There was a slight stretch but i still looked completely fabulous, rather faaaabulouuuuuuuuuuus. on the bright side they made my ass look great. 

 

on a serious note, you may want to take a look at the 013. I regret not waiting for that style in my size.

 

but then again, i  don't have very many posts and most of my limited entries have a slight hint of troll so i'm probably not the most reputable person here.
