Raw -> still damp measurements
samurai S710XX lot 14, tagged 33
waist 34 / 34
inseam 39 / 37
front rise 11.75 / 11.25
leg opening 8.25 / 8
knee 9.5 (forgot to grab this)
upper thigh 12.25 / 11.75

yeah, the denim is really thick and buttons are a pain at first. sounds like you can do another longer soak to get the remaining shrinkage out of the way. that is odd the waist didnt come in but you got 2" out of the inseam.

take fit pics when you can. i miss wearing mine.

Used the hanger method to keep the waist from shrinking- a plastic shirt hanger fit perfectly inside the waistband.

Wore em until mostly dry and they're in for round two right now.

They didn't budge on the second soak.. odd?

Feeling much more comfortable than I was expecting. Buttoning was way less of an issue than after the 1st. Must be the starch loss after 2 soaks. I'm actually a little nervous that they aren't tighter. Might just be a faulty memory but feel like my APCs started out considerably tighter. Comfort wise they are nice just not sure if they are tight enough to get the epic fades ;-)

New S8000JX-N

And 1-year old S500JX-LR with irregular wear on the weekends. I didn't wear them at all during the summer. So, not really something unusual in terms of fading.

Any specific reason why some models have arctuates and others do not?

Almost all Samurai models have arcuates. Some are non-contrast (indigo) arcs, so that's why you're not really seeing them. Also, there was a handful of jeans made with no arcs maybe a year or two ago, a result of Levi's putting up a lawsuit against several Japanese denim companies for trademark infringement on the arcuates. Fortunately, that seems to have blown over now.

post #715 of 836

correct.

poly800rock- how many washes, and how how much wear u put into those? looks good.
post #718 of 836
a lot of wear, a lot of washes. too many to count really.
post #719 of 836
...thinking about copping a pair of the 710 black shadows from BiG... would the sizing be comparable to the regular 710's? any help would be greatly appreciated...
post #720 of 836

yep, sizing is identical. at least that was my experience.
