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 #849 of 1021
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 #850 of 1021

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...)
