    Considering a pair of Flat Head 1001's. Anyone know what size I would take if I wear 31 in Sugar Canes and Iron Heart? Having a tough time deciding between a 33 or a 32 in the Flat Head. Looking for a fit without much (if any) sag.

    Also, will the 1001's continue to shrink after the first warm soak? I've read that FH denim stretches a little, but not much. Mostly wondering whether the first soak gets all the shrink out.

    Thx.

    xx-011 is tapered, but you can go to any tailor to get the 005s tapered from the knee

    my thread was locked for asking this question what jean is this? [​IMG] Before anyone says it, yes he looks like a complete tool. I've been looking for slim fitting jeans in that dark color haven't had any luck, though [​IMG]

    I have a couple of pairs of Acne Mic's in raw denim and am very happy with the fabric, fit and construction, especially at around $100. They run true to size in raw denim, they were loose on me at first but shrank to fit perfect after one wash.

    how should i size on some lvc 66's to get a slim fit?

    Man just fucking try them on. Sizing changes by the year and it's always [​IMG] no matter what.

    That said, '66 are pretty slimish but I guess you could size down one or two (if you are a masochist), but really just try them on. PM Pablo T about this though.

    Maybe this has already been asked/answered, but is there a particular reason why black Diors don't stretch as much as the indigos?

    ugg, pocket rivet fell off brand new skull 5507s. Have only soaked and worn around apartment for a few hours. Hopefully I can get it back on with just a hammer, BiG is going to try and send me a replacement.

    Btw, thanks again to mlyngard for the rec, the cut is closer to what I want than anything else I've had or tried. Still a bit large in the waist and a little snug just below the hips, but I always have this problem and it is less off than usual.

    Also, these skulls have a massive amount of (loose) indigo, tub was way darker than other soaks(kmw, aw, apc). Anxious to wear them, but I need to wait to repair the rivet, and besides that I just started at the hospital and have to wear scrubs 5days a week, so it is going to be a long break in process.

    Just different denim, like the Italian vs. Japanese stretching

    Wise words. You can downsize quite severely on the 66, I would recommend by one inch from measured size for a slim fit. But best by far to try them on.

    Flat Head 1001's pre-soak.

    Are these a good pre-soak fit, or should I go down another size?
