    Is it advisable to size down 3 with the 106? I am a size 34, planning to get a tagged size 31 (waist 33). Hoping that these's stretch to a 34 once soaked and stretched...going for a slim look to wear with either Purcell's or some Superga's Also, I noticed that the 106s have a zip fly. Does that affect its look at all? I'm thinking once it's soaked the denim will also shrink or pull the fabric the zipper's attached to creating a weird look.

    I read in Superfuture that Kiya sized down almost the same because his 29's measured a 32. I would've posted there but I don't have an account there =p

    I have no idea how you think you're going to fit into a jean that measures 31" in the waist when you're actually a 34" waist.

    uhhhhhhh

    Yes.

    I read in Superfuture that Kiya sized down almost the same because his 29's measured a 32. I would've posted there but I don't have an account there =p

    I didn't size down, i wear a 29 or 30 in all Flat Head and Heart Jeans.
    My jeans shrunk down to 29" after the first hot soak, they've stretch 2.5" or so after a year and a half of wear.

    pre-soak. cuffed to avoid dragging them and for some reason the flash went off for the rear shot. [​IMG] [​IMG] initial impressions: they're badass. nice slub to them, lightweight and soft, and the zipper is a welcome change from trying to force buttons on steel denim. the large coin pocket rules because my car FOB will fit into it now.

    That's a very good presoak fit.

    They are quite an awesome jean. I tried them on last week and definitely will be getting them at some point.

    Yeah, but then it would sound too much like Pure Blue Japan.



    Dunno if I like the bacpockets on these...

    It's a cursive R Although I will probably remove the stitching on my pair.

    tie them to a fan, cuts the dry time in half easy
