    the size 30s are perfect on me.
    would you mind posting pictures of the XX-005 being worn? most of the pictures I've seen are closeups of the hairy-ass denim [​IMG]

    Also for the record my 27 New Standards were obscenely tight at first, it took me like 20 minutes to get them buttoned..

    [​IMG] Same thing with me. Did your index finger hurts like hell too, from all that fumbling trying to button up the jeans?

    Sounds like were pretty much the same size, I'm 5'11" 158 pounds. If you dont mind me asking what are your proportions?



    I've gone through two pairs of XX-005s and both pairs were dead on true to size. As a note, I can wear a size 27 APC NS and I couldn't even button up XX-005s in a size 28. They were literally leggings on me. I'm pretty damn skinny too considering I only weigh 120lbs, and the size 30s are perfect on me.

    Wow almost 40 pounds of difference between us but the same waist in APC, although I heard APC are notorious for streaky sizing.

    I'm a few lbs heavier than you, and maybe half an inch taller. And yes, I skinned my thumb for the first couple weeks of wearing my APCs.

    I'll be sure to post pics when I get them... probably a week from monday when I'm back from Vacation. If I forget just PM me in 2 weeks time [​IMG]

    I am trying to decide between the 003s and 005s. I am not super skinny so I am not sure if I can even fit into the 005s, so that is why I am posting here. A pair of 30 NS fit me very tight and is about as small as I could go. Should I even bother considering the 005s? I want something slimmer than my Rescues but am not looking for a pair of tights. My actual waist size is 34 inches, and my thighs measure 21 inches

    I'm back.. I'll get pics soon. For now I'll compare them to size 27 New Standards:

    -roughly the same level of tightness in the thighs of both jeans
    -much higher quality denim on the PBJs, incredibly textured, bobbly, slubby, hairy and uneven. It looks like a hairy seacreature attacking your legs.
    -hidden backpocket rivets on the PBJs. Hooray!
    -no taper past the knee on the PBJs. The difference is about an inch (7 on the NS, 8 on the PBJs)
    -blue selvage line on the PBJs
    -way less stiff than any other dry jeans I've tried on. Probably because they're one wash. I'm thinking these will fade quite slowly.
    -the rise is very low. As in, 'my cock and balls could fall out'-low. Reminds me of the Acne Max cut.

    ^^^ Oh man that sounds amazing I'm definetly getting it now, were roughly the same waist size so how does it run lose, tight, or just right?

    I'm not sure what that means could you elaborate? Looking forward to seeing those pics, thanks in advance. The bad news is my friend had a change of plans and wont be going to japan next month [​IMG] so I'll have to use one of those bid-sevices from japan.

    I found pics of a size 32 wearing 005's hope it helps, link below, personally I think looser fit's (003)look better on 34's than slims. http://styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=17445

    they run pretty much perfect in the waist, though they haven't stretched yet

    they're just very low rise. Lower than I'm used to. The rise is probably 1-1.5 inches lower than my new standards. I actually prefer a higher rise so I can wear them a bit saggy and antifit but that's okay. EDIT- I might put these jeans on hold for a while until I can wear in my New Standards more.

    29 should fit if you like your jeans tight as fuck.

    31s would ride too low, I think.

    PICS COMING I SWEAR TO GOD [​IMG]

    pics [​IMG] [​IMG] had to borrow a camera. As you can see, the seat isn't quite as fitted as APC's ass gripping cut, but its pretty close.
