post #751 of 836

so I'm looking at getting these in 31:

http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=3224&category_id=14&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=62

 

How much should I be expecting the thigh to shrink/ stretch? 0.5 shrink in wash, 0.5 stretch?

 

Same question for Rise/ Thigh and these in 32:

if they fit well unwashed they usually stretch back out to about that size after 2-3 weeks

will most likely soak since the waist is a little big and I want to get rid of some of the shrinkage.

definitely soak them!

Would you guys recommend soaking these http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=6457&category_id=&manufacturer_id=10&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=62 to shorten and make the leg opening smaller? 

 

Going to be my first pair of sammy so please bare with me

 

And how much does the waist usually stretch ?

Samurais are unsanforized so you have to soak them (IMO)

But well...you want skinny jeans, right? than look into a different brand. of course they will shrink a decent amount but I don't know if it will be enough for you

Here are some better fit pics of my s5000vx. 1 45 minute hot soak will soak again once I decide to actually wear them.

Would be awesome if anyone could help! I am looking for a very dark indigo slim/straight jean. Which would be better: s0500xx or s710xx. One problem is BiG is out of stock on s0500xx until August. Basically I am wondering if the s0500xx would be the better fit and if it’s worth waiting.

1. Which one is darker? 
2. Which would have the slim/straight look I am looking for better? 
3. Which size should I get if my true waist is 32? ( accounting for stretch after the hot soak)

post #762 of 836

Would anyone be interested in my s5000vx, I'm afraid I have lost a lot of weight since I bought them and they are way to big for me even with a belt :C. My post a BS

Been looking for some black raw denim of late and I've heard Samurais get some great fades with nice details.

Pored over this thread but there aren't a whole lot of fade pics and the cuts seem to have changed over time.

Are there better options for black raw denim than Samurais? Also, what are my options if I'm looking for a standard low straight cut--anything other than the 5000BK and 710 Black Shadow from BiG?
post #764 of 836
the S5000BKB is another option. S5000 cut (mid/low rise, straight leg) with a denim using black warp and weft.
post #765 of 836
if you're looking for black denim that gives [traditional] fades like the indigos, you're in the right spot. the Samurai black denims [both 17 & 19ozers] have the best fades in, IMHO.
