I am selling a new with tags pair of authentic Polo Ralph Lauren RRL slim fit 30X34 jeans. These were purchased and owned by a responsible adult. I will ship the same day as long as USPS is open at the time. Please leave feedback once your item is received, I will do so to you once I have received feedback. These jeans retail for $240 USD and are made by Ralph Lauren RRL, one of the highest quality brands in the United States. I own several double RL jeans and the fit and quality is unmatched. This is your chance to get high quality denim at a fraction of the price. Thanks and good luck bidding!

 

(had to relist because a man in Hong Kong thought they were women's jeans....)

Seriously dude?

This is not B/S and what's more this isn't even Samurai related!

To be honest, I don't think anyone buying 21oz + is wearing them for practical reasons. It borders more on fetishism if anything. Those who buy heavy denim and wear it because do so, because they are denim heads, or live in Greenland or some shit; where such jeans actually serve a practical purpose. On that note a 710 in a 21oz offering would undoubtably be delicious, but Samurai already has a 19oz denim in the 710 which is close enough.

Traded a member on here my size 29 24oz s5000vx for a size 28 21oz. since I needed to size down.

Here are some fit pictures x post from the SUFU thread. Looking for input on the silhouette, still need to hem ay even taper .5 since I have small feet. This is after about an hour, warm/hot, soak.

Hello, I am in need of help! I am a noob when it comes down to this, I have done as much research as I can to make the right purchase. Now I plan on making my purchase at 2nd on Rakuten, I have my eye set out on Samurais S710xx. I did some research and I have come down to 2 sizes for the 710s. I'm contemplating on the 2 sizes which is tag size 31 and tag size 32. I am TTS 32, I'm afraid that if I get a size 31 it won't fit with a hot soak or when I dry it in the dryer, so I was thinking a size 32 but I do want it to fit perfectly and not to bulky. Now, how much does these Samurai shrink? The chart on 2nd seems a bit confusing...

Hi. I'm new to this whole raw denim thing, and I hope the more experienced can help me out.

 

I just got a pair of Samurai S710xx jeans from a member here. It's gone through 2 washes and has some wear/fades.

 

They're tagged a size W29L36. From what I've read through a bit of research, it seems that Samurais are pretty true to size. Is this true?

 

These pair I have measure to be about a 32" waist. This is way too big for me.

 

Will they shrink further with soaks/washes? Is there any chance I can get them to shrink further, seeing as they've already been washed twice?

 

How should I go about soaking/washing these? I don't have a tub where I live, and the washing machine can only do cold washes (something about the tap not being able to provide hot water). Can I just use a bucket, or is it wrong?

With soak/wash the waist should shrink to tag size and stretch about 1". In your case, shrink to 29" and stretch to 30" with consistent wear.  To help maintain 29" waist you can wear a belt to minimize stretching.

 

Boil hot water in a kettle and soak jeans in the bucket - that should do the job fine.  Just be careful and don't soak your jeans with water beyond 60 degrees celsius (whatever that works out to be in Fahrenheit), the leather patch will cook and look like bacon.  Soak/wash for 1 hour, do this 3 times, the jeans will shrink to your desire waist size.

Thanks a lot! I'll try this.
