Just got it! It feels so comfortable! Mine is 32X32, but the waist is a "little" bit tight, I know as I wear it more often, it will stretch out a bit, so I'm sure that this is the right size for me. I'm 5'10 too so the length should be the right size too. However, my question is, what shall i do with the jeans first? Shall I wash? soak it first? I'm wearing it already cuz I can't wait to get the breaks and fades! It feels amazing! Also I had a thread about my purchase of my Cheap Monday, this jeans feels totally different from CM, this jeans is far superior than CM's. Just my little thoughts.

Guess "Who" recently posted about washing their jeans... Read the post and then start from the beginning of the thread to see the learning curve: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...0&postcount=68 Washing machine? http://supertalk.superfuture.com/showthread.php?t=12733 Washing early and often? http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=18526 Hot vs. cold? http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=18098 Stay and browse longer... Ott... Don't know if that's a compliment but I guess I'll appreciate it. I think we've all seen what the mods are like around here.
Edit: For added fun, guess who's who!

1) You're going to want to start over with a different screen name before you get to far into your post count / identity and regret it later. 2) All you have to do is go to the SuFu encylopedia thread and read every single link from start to finish. I've been here since some time in January and picked everything up very quickly. Just get OCD about learning and you'll be picking up Samurai's on Rakuten in no time. 3) Become very adept at using google translate. 4) Why have there been so many crazy-generic / noobish threads recently? Is unwahsed denim starting to become trendy or something?

the mods we have are fantastic. I mean, fok is a saint who brings us discounts and collabs on a regular basis. However, I don't think I'm the only one who's noticed the sudden influx of idiotic posts lately. If I see another "hey guys how do I wear jeans?!" post or another "hey dudes what's a good color to wear??" post or another KennyGhetzoff post (where he tries his little heart out to buy Nudies without actually buying Nudies) I'm going to freak
we need a bad cop! EDIT-

aha
I still like that this place is more laidback than superfuture, but it's becoming really hard to sift through all the shitposts which swamp the front page.

Some of the deals we've been getting from affiliates, friends, etc. have been superb and I think you're on the right track of bringing up the work Fok & Co. have been doing lately.

It's also the atmosphere of learning and sharing, perhaps with a few potshots at my mother (Sauce, Jet, BW, et. al), that keeps me coming back. I've mentioned posting a newbie sticky before but nothing seems to come out of it , we paste past threads asking the same questions and linking sufu, and then a week or two (or few hours as the case has been of late) we do it again.


I'll PM Fok and see if I can't come up with a draft for our own Encyclo thread.

VersaceMan got his name changed to VMan... somehow. So nothing's written in stone.
