    ^Japanese proxy service. Sharpservice or Sutocorp are popular ones around here. I've had better experience with Suto, but a lot of people like Sharpservice and it is slightly cheaper.

    I just hot soaked a new pair of raw size 30 pure blue japan XX-007's in water that was about 38 degrees celsius (102 degrees farenheit) and while they did shrink, when compared to the one-wash mesaurements on BiG they still have about 0.5 inches to shrink in every dimension.

    Will it be damaging to the jeans to hot wash them again, what temperature will be good for maximum shrinkage, and can I do the hot soak in a bucket? The temperature I listed above is the maximum temperature my bathtub will put out.

    Looking for Jet Black jeans with a similar fit to APC PS. I know that there is a 'Faux Noir', but you can't get them in NA. The only other options I see are Acne Max Cash and Uniqlo T-000 (cheaper price point). Anything else?

    If you hot soak again at the same temperature, you'll probably get rid of the rest of that shrinkage that you have left over. PBJs, like most other unsanforized Japanese denim, tend to require multiple hot soaks to reach maximum shrinkage. Soaking more than once won't damage the jeans. Also, soaking in a bucket is fine, just make sure that the jeans are completely submerged in the soak water.

    Hello, I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm asking at the right place but here I go.

    Does anyone know where I buy a mens Moncler Jacket around the LA area? I went to Barneys on Rodeo Dr but they didn't have any...
    If not, an online store is fine too. (other then Barneys & bloomingdales)

    Buy these $60 Zara pants and get them hemmed:

    ...or, for $0, rip the bottoms of your regular old sweatpants, then take a dump in them. [​IMG]

    Do Sperry Top-Siders run true to size or should I size down? For reference I have a pair of Clark's Desert Boots in size 7½, but they're a little large.
