    that is one of the better nudie cuts ive seen. at that price you got a good deal. i cant stand the back pocket stitching but you might like them. take fit pics when you get them.

    ...pretty good cut... and as they're selvege, probably one of the better pairs of nudies you could get...

    It's a really nice cut, too, and a lot more modern than what you see from some of the repro-focused Japanese companies. It depends on what you're looking for in a pair of jeans, but I'd say you made a decent choice (and got a pretty good deal to boot).

    So I'm going to pick up a new pair of raws and am especially focused on the PBJ xx-005. Do I pick the pair that I can barely do up the top button or just TTS?

    I wouldn't get PBJs that tight raw, because they use unsanforized denim, which will shrink 1-2" in the waist with repeated washing. Plus, even if you are able to get back into them after they shrink, sizing down that much will almost definitely cause the thighs on this cut to be too tight for you.

    It's generally recommended to size down 1 from your true waist measurement on this cut, unless you have really skinny legs, then you can probably get away with sizing down 2.

    Just thought I'd share a pleasant discovery from laundry today:

    Recently i wore a brand new Real Madrid home jersey to classes with my once-soaked pbjx007s. I had hot soaked them for a good, long time, and hadn't noticed indigo rubbing off on anything so I figured i was ok. Upon getting home though, the white jersey (100% poly) had a tinge of blue all around the area that had touched the jeans at all. I was somewhat disheartened.

    Today, while doing laundry I decided to get the stain out. Did bleach soaks, etc. nothing worked. Then i pulled out this product that a friend had recommended years ago, but was just sitting in the top of the cabinet.

    Zout.

    [​IMG]

    I rubbed the indigo-ed area for about 5 minutes, with a bit of elbow grease, saturating it with this stuff. Bam. No more blue tinge. The Real jersey is just as white as when I first got it.

    Anyways - for all those with blue rubbing off on your kicks or white v-necks, i highly recommend this. That is all.

    I don't quite remember where - Wal-Mart, actually i think. And i would gladly take Real tickets from you anytime. School schedules can make it hard to get up to as many games as I'd like, but having tickets in my hand is pretty good motivation.

    It's a cruel world where your favorite player dons the opposition's shirt. I'm satisfied when Messi pulls on the albiceleste. And, I have to say, even for all the goals he puts up, Ronaldo is still a douche - madridista o no.

    being short allowed you to stack the bottom of the jeans, which mitigates the taper of the 19cm. if you were taller, you'd look top heavy. this is the exact problem i have with tapered jeans.

    So does this mean that my height is just tall enough to give me a balanced look overall?? I always have tapered jeans stack on the bottom because otherwise my legs would look like chicken legs lol And with Dior Homme jeans, it's almost impossible to not stack the bottom unless you're like 6 feet with long legs lol

    The answer depends on who you ask. In my opinion nice and not too tight [​IMG]

    I thought so too, thanks. The back pocket stitching doesn't bother me at all.

    Hi guys, So, I just bought this pair of jeans. When I tried it on, the waist was okay, but all parts below it just screamed baggy since I'm skinny (56 kg/176 cm). Since it's shrink-to-fit, I'm thinking of soaking it with hot water to get the most shrink possible. Here lays the question: what should I do with the waist part? It's hard to keep it off the water. Should I just wear it while soaking so the waist part won't get too small? But if I wear it then the water can't be too hot, so does this mean the shrink won't be optimal? Thanks. Sorry if you can't understand my English.

    when people say use dryer after soaking, do they mean regular tumble dryer found on was machines in every household?
