It should be noted that Gordon at BiG can get other sizes of Samurai jeans. He's quite willing to work with you to provide stuff that isn't listed on the website. Send him an email and see if he can help you. Rakuten is a good second choice, but it does have its limitations.

Anyone knows where I can find the s710's with hidden arcs?

you're talking about the ones that will leave a faded arcs? like this:

Hottest day in Germany and I received my heaviest pair of jeans. They weigh 1349 gr. Samurai S5000VX24oz The patch with the 2 big Samurais (patch looks smaller than usual) My first pair with the new contrast arcs The thick selvage I write a bigger review later along with measurements. But I can already say they shrink FROM tag size (as expected)
post #650 of 836
First review of the S5000VX24oz I just put them on and it was a fight. Some of my jeans shrank to a smaller size than these but there was no problem to buttom them up and stretch them. I really needed some minutes till I could button these 24oz beast up. They are now raping my hip ;-) I think it's my slimmest Samurai fit I currently own. The denim is very thick and rigid but also not as slubby&irregular as the other Samurai denim. I think it's the same with the PBJ and SG heavy denim. Both brands are also known for slubby and irregular denim but the heavier, the cleaner the denim is woven. Maybe because the looms are already under such heavy stress that irregular yarns would torture the looms too much. Measurements waist: 34 / 33 front rise: 11,5 / 10,75 back rise: 15 / 14 thigh: 13 / 12,5 knee: 9,5 / <9,5 leg opening: 9 / 8,75 inseam: 37,5 / 35,75 Pre-soak fit pics

Hey chaps, I'll be selling my Samurai 710s if anyone wants first dibs before I post them up. Size 31, inseam is 33.5. Not worn much, slight fading on the crotch, some pics earlier in the thread. Will PM more pics to anyone interested. Fantastic jeans, just a bit too tight in the rise for my 6'2 frame I think, need a size up.

Tried on the SAT5-BKK collab today (samurai + take5), really love them Question on sizing though, I'm a true 31-32 waist, and tried the 32 but found the waist to be a touch loose Should I size down to 31? how much will it shrink?

Which collab is this? Is it the 710 one that uses the Geisha denim?

Pre-soak fit pics

Nice! So those are the pre and post soak measurements?

So the size 34 lot 14 in this one, measures 34 raw, not 35 or 36 etc?

Seems to measure similar to the S710? I know not exactly, but is this lot 14 in this cut measuring slimmer than previous 5000vx's?

In this case it's not because of the Lot# but because of the 24oz denim. The models with the heavier denim from Samurai mostly/usually shrinks from tag size. At least that's what the 21oz denim and 24oz RHT denim did.

Wouldn't that be ninjas, not samurais?

Anybody got any fit/detail pics of the S0610LX? I want something with a lower rise but I'm wondering whether this would be too low. How does it compare to the Somet low rise? http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...id=62&vmcchk=1
post #659 of 836
The somet is slightly lower rise and slimmer
