I've been seriously considering to order a pair of these for a while, but I never ordered any piece of clothing that expensive (yes, I think $200 is quite expensive) through internet before. I was wondering if anyone here owns a pair and could comment on the sizing, fit, shrink and could perhaps post a few pictures? If someone ones a pair, would it be advised to get the non-wash or one-wash? Perhaps someone could also tell me what's the best way to go about deciding and ordering your size? Since I'm relatively new to ordering clothes online - especially raw denim - I was thinking about getting my sizes taken by a tailor and then check the sizetable. Thanks in advance. http://www.guitarwolf.net/e-jet-g.html

I'd suggest the one wash wherever possible. Makes it easier to order the correct size :p

i second this. you're going to have soak them before you wear anyway. when you are ordering jeans from halfway around the world over the internet it can be hard to predict how much they will shrink. with japanese denim you wont see any color loss.

good luck.

i say go for raw and save yourself the $10-----then you can get the full dry denim experience with the soaking and smurf-blood dripping. love: - the crotch-rivet - offset belt-loop - howl at the moon leather patch - hidden rivets - cotton thread stitching no love: - "loud" thunder arcuate what is the "dry bones original sushi stitch"??? it looks like a regular single-stitched hem to me:
maybe the sushi bit is that the hem is rolled. that's probably it.

I always thought it was because the stitching looked like tuna with the seaweed and rice around it?

And I would go raw too. Find your the size it will shrink down to, then order the next size down.

at arrival,
put them on to see how tight they are.

1. if too tight then wear them around to stretch them out.
2. then soak.
3. put damp jeans back on.
4. enjoy!

1. if not tight, soak
2. let dry.
3. enjoy.

I don't fully understand this part. You're saying if for example, a 29 will shrink to a 28, I should get a 27?
Please elaborate.


Thanks for all the info so far!

Not sure. I'm still waiting for my answer if they ship to Europe from them. But I think someone from Superfuture who lives in the UK has a pair, so it should be.

btw, someone on SuFu that says he has a pair said they're sanforized so there wouldnt be a need to size up, expecting it to shrink-to-fit

Do you think you could get him to post some pics?
