    ^ lulz, sorry to dig up painful memory. oh, i'm not planning to do anything on mine__ had quite enough painful share of size downs in my day. it's either going back out to the supermarket or it's gonna be some sweet birthday present to a friend & fellow enthusiast.

    i knew 33 post soak on a tagged W33 was too good to be true. i really wasn't planning on getting them after reading up & learning about the sizing issue, but the owner [from here @FS] dove the price down__ to which was incomprehensibly irresistable to a degenerate denimhead [​IMG] [​IMG] .

    ^painful, yes, but apparently I'm a sucker for punishment because I value the jeans more now that I went through that.

    looks great. could potentially tidy up with a hem, or if they're new they might settle into some decent stacks.

    ^fantastic job sizing them, imo... please give us some description & measurements.


    PBJ 007 :: 14.5oz :: TTS @W33
    [​IMG]
    @4.5 mos [effective wear] x 3 hotsoaks :: current measurements : w= 34, ins= 33, f/r= 10, b/r= 14.5, u/t= 12, kn= 8.5, l/o=8.75

    [​IMG]



    .... & the saga continues: 1.5 yrs :: still no wash :: 5 warm soaks :: approx. 6mos effective wear

    they're my "filler" jeans__ meaning, worn on & off__ mostly to relieve my main rotation jeans, so they pretty much had the sedentary part of the rotation cycle:

    fried the leather patch on initial hot soak__ had to resuscitate w/tons of conditioning + stitch up crumbllng edge

    Flat Heads 1001 after 20 min lukewarm soak and air dry (size 33). I'm 5'9" and 178 lbs. I sometimes have trouble getting fits I like because I have thin upper thighs but a bubble-ass--which is a little contradictory. I like these, but have considered giving them a warmer/hot soak to shrink them down for a more fitted look. These are my first FH's. I'll post evo pics as they develop.

    Here's some SC 2009's in size 31 that I'll be working on if we see any summer weather in the Bay Area (cool so far). Would like to see some stretch so they relax over my frame. No wash or soak so far. Again, I'll update the thread when they have some wear.

    finally, Okinawas in size 31. New, and then after 65 full days of wear. No wash or soak yet. Love the denim. Have never been crazy about this fit on me (which even though I sized correctly seems to get worse as they break in) and I regret hemming them. But I wanted a pair of 47's in rotation so I'm committed to seeing these through.

    Model '47 fits :

    Studio D'ArtisanSD-101 :: 15oz :: size +1 @34 [could've TTS]
    [​IMG]
    @6 mos eff. wear x 4 soaks x 1 cold wash :: current measurements : w= 34, ins= 33, f/r= 11, b/r= 15, u/t= 12.75, kn= 9.5, l/o= 9



    last wash was 1yr ago & 2nd scheduled wash is end of summer :: 7.5 mos eff. wear :: 5 warm soaks :: they've been subbing the D1334 for summer detail__ the drys are just too punishing for NY summer heat.

    Just got some new jeans, 17.5cm. So comfy. These are size 27, stretch, fairly lightweight (12oz I'd imagine) broken twill. Not selvage but dry. [​IMG] ps: i'm apparently preggers in pic 2

    replaced the NS a few pages back with the RRL low straight rinsed, tagged 30x32. waist measures 16.5 currently. worn about 3 days so far so stretching isn't over yet. inseam is 32.5 and hem is 8. much happier. [​IMG] [​IMG]
