    From what I read Dry Bones stretches about 1" in the waist. I actually just got a pair of Red-Ds today. Got the 29" (my waist is about 32"). One thing: these jeans are definitely loooong. I am 6'7" and I bought these so I could actually have a bit of stacking for once in my life. I think they fit well, can't wait to break them in and stretch them out a bit.

    if you had a choice, would you buy the
    1) PRPS new fit
    2) KMW rocker
    3) other raw jeans slim in that same price point.
    and why?

    pbjs and skulls are pretty slim in the thighs. More so than the new standards. I haven't tried on the somets though.

    i'm thinking about getting the NS and only sizing down 1 or getting the rest of those jeans in a 34, maybe a 35 for the skulls if i do.

    still up in the air about which ones to get

    How do I get my jeans to stack evenly? The left leg and right leg of the jeans are stacking differently right now.

    New Standards aren't even remotely low rise (still cool though). I like somet, never tried the other 2.

    I sized down one on my APC's (hence could barely button them) and it went fine.
    Hello. Crucial information crossposted from APC thread. 5' 7" height. 33" true waist Quads are 23.5" around largest part and 22.25" smack in the middle of my thigh. (they are massively/xbox huge) 16.25" calves. Usually wear a 30" inseam. My question: Think I could go for the Dry Bones Red-D (despite the 39" inseam)? Or maybe even the KMW 1980s? I have no idea how Dry Bones or KMW denim stretches at all. And I am wearing my size 31 APC NS's with a loose waist and tightness in the thigh area. Additional potential choices: Iron Heart 634S, larger Skulls (based on SE measurements might be just right), hunt for Dry Bones DP-570 (larger thigh room, much shorter inseam than Red-D). I'm just lost at the moment :\\
    It seems like everybody has a loose waist on thier APC's, I would get the 1980 as I perfer a nice modern cut jean. 39 Inch inseam might go badly too but I really have no idea.

    I just picked up a pair of 501XX STFs 30x34 from Macy's today. Should I soak them immediately or not? Anything I need to do during the soaking process? How long should I soak them? Soak them inside out? Should I hang dry them or wear them around while damp (someone suggested this to me)? Anything else I need to know in general about STFs? (New to raw/selvedge). As is, the jeans feel loose around thighs and legs and just slightly loose around the waist.

    I wear a 29 normally (511/514s). Natural waist (2 inches above naval) is 31".

    Alright. Decided to cold soak them for a few hours and wear them dry. Currently in the tub.

    If I wear size 30 for APC NS's and my true waist size is 32, what size Imperial Dukes should I get?

    Soaked in cold water for 3.5 hours and wearing now. Definitely slimmer along the waist but still loose in the thighs. Should I resoak? Warm or cold? Right away or keep wearing these damp?

    3.5 hours is a long time. I think the only thing that might shrink them some more would be a hot soak, like boiling hot water soak. Notice: you won't want to be in the tub with the jeans on when you do this.[​IMG]
