    ^ Thanks alot. And by the way, are the pictures I posted above justified in terms of the color and fade. Is it off?

    And I would like to get a slim fit throughout. Can you recommend me a correct size. I wear 31, sometimes 32 in non raw jeans,30 in Nudie Even Stevens.

    Thank you for all the prompt help again.

    they're off a little i guess. it's really impossible to photograph those jeans. either it comes out too dark or too light. That pic is on the lighter side. but you can see that the fading doesn't go to grey, it goes to white, so they are not like the usual black jeans, they're more like indigo jeans. i can't really say what size to get. I'm a 28 in apc's and the last nudies i got were regular ralf's like 3 years ago now and those were a 30. I'd say if you want a slim fit throughout, size down 2. You might doubt it, but these stretch a lot and as long as the thigh fits, you're ok.

    Just so you know.. if you're looking for slim, these definitely aren't slim.

    ^Oh I know, I was going to get the bottom tapered up alittle. I'm not looking for skin tight. Just enough so it doesn't look like a typical regular cut which is what the cut was intended for. Thanks for all your help.

    yeah I sized down 2 on these s5000bk's and they dont look slim at all, just regular.

    You may be better off getting PBJ 005bk and getting them taking in an inch from the knee down.

    Or you could consider the Skull5010xx bk

    The Flat head do a slim black model, 3001bk (???) I think.

    Alright yall, forgot to post an update. Got them from kiya while he was eating ghorme sabzi, great service by the way. Ordered and got here in two days last week. I ended up getting 34s and here's the problem:

    1. Waist is already tight.
    2. Legs seem cool and would be even better shrunken a little.

    Problem is I don't think I will be able to wear these after a wash [​IMG]

    Hot soak 'em 3 times.

    Apparently they stretch a lot.. I could definitely use the legs on mine being slimmer but not by much.

    How the fuck am I going to button these then? There is no way I'm going to wash these in anything other than cold water. What size are yours?

    ghorme sabzi is so good

    sabzi polo with tadik and salty fish is better ha

    heres what id did for my 29s, when raw they were very tight, very tight, so rather than shrink down to an unwearable size , i cut a piece of wood, about 15ish inches across ( remember im a 31 waist ) and buttoned them up around the wood, then threw em in a hot hot hot soak, this shrank the legs down but the waist remained the same.

    Just wear them for a while and let them stretch out before doing a wash/soak.. They take quite a while to fade so you should be fine even if you waited a month or two before soaking them.

    The fit as of a few weeks ago:

    And fit like this after all shrinking was done (multiple hot soaks):

    They take forever to fade, so prepare to get dedicated for a long time.
