I was surprised pulling these out again - the weight is so different in the fabric (it's far more broken in, but still) and despite the measurements in the top block being relatively similar to my 702s, I was just amazed at how differently they fit.

 

ello ello.  how did you size in the PBJ compared with the 702s?  How is the fit comparison.  I thought the 007 was a more 702type fit?

In both the PBJ 007 and 009, I went -1 to a 33. Had to move on the 007s b/c thighs were so tight. 009s are still good.

In Momotaro 701/702 I've gone TTS, 34 and then subsequently +1, 36. Again, had to move on the 34s b/c of thighs, but the 36 momos are great.

So, PBJ 33 (larger cut), Momotaro (smaller cut) 36.

XX-011 vs XX-013. I'm unsure which one I want. Thoughts?

post #848 of 1123
I have the 11s and I'm looking to buy the 13s. I think the 11s were a bit too slim for my post-soak.

Which leads me to consider getting the One Wash so I can stop stressing about shrinkage. Are the One Wash versions really soft and floppy? I kinda prefer my jeans to have some rigidity, esp when new.
post #849 of 1123

I actually just bought the 13's second hand, and might buy some 11's the same way and sell the one I like less. Looking at them, I do like slub, but I like the fades of the 11's much more than 13's. 

In any case, the 13's I bought (basically new) are one wash, so I'll let you know how they feel when they arrive.

Not much to be seen yet, because of limited wear (about a week old, haha). But creases start to settle.

Great looking jeans Mistral!!!!

Ordered the wrong size xx-011. Should have gotten a 34 instead of the 33s. They're raw and just a little tight in the thighs. A shame too because the denim is unreal.

Managed to try on some raw 03 & 05.

Was disappointed that neither cut was to my taste. The slim was tight, the straight was too roomy in the 'seat' and thigh. : (

PBJs, I find more and more, are very hard to size. FWIW, I have the 009 (similar to the 003, but w/ the deep indigo) and even after two years now I just washed them and they still shrunk further down. The seat and thigh are no longer baggy at all. Also though, I went -1 in sizing.

Completely onboard with you. I think a lot of the stretchyness of PBJ was overstated earlier in the thread. I would definitely go TTS in this brand, almost regardless of cut, and when in doubt, "size for thighs" (which I realize is difficult buying online, but y'know...)

                    Hey, does anyone hear know what kind of cotton Pure Blue Japan uses?

 

 

Zimbabwe cotton?

 

ELS or Pima cotton?

 

Suvin cotton?

 

I’m pretty certain they don't use Upland cotton…

Thanks guyssmile.gif
