    Momotaro 0201 size 32
    Bought from BiG on Sunday, soaked with hottest tap water for two hours, water changed once at the one hour mark. Note - I got the BiG and SelfEdge thigh measurement techniques mixed up - measured an inch down from the crotch (BiG measures straight from crotch). Knee measured at 13" from crotch as per BiG.

    ^Thanks. I'm usually a 31 or 32; I go more by the thighs/seat than the waist. These could actually be a bit smaller in the waist but I'm very happy with the fit otherwise and glad I went with the 32s.

    Fit looks good, but like your saying you would be happy if the waist was a bit smaller, I think you can get that. Sounds like you soaked once right, and changed the water during it, but they basically stayed wet the whole time? I would soak again, not sure if you are using your tub or a washing machine, but if you could soak for another hour, and then before you pull them out get some agitation going. I usually soak in the washer, and can leave the lid up so they just sit, and then before I pull them out, if I'm looking for maxium shrinkage, even 20 seconds of agitation will get the fibers moving and most likely get you a little more shrinkage.

    Either way, fit looks good, but I bet they would shrink a tad more.

    I'm sure I could get a bit more shrink out of them, but I'd rather not get any tighter in the thighs/top block. They're far from falling off and I always wear a belt anyway.

    I've never been into cuffing, but kind of like the look of these. May leave them as is.

    ^ [​IMG] Way too many jawns already, and I can only wear them to work on Fridays so I'm limited to three days a week.

    I had a list of stuff I wanted to try on at BiG...Sam S710xx and S0500xx, PBJ xx-009, Oni Blue, and Momo 0201. Tried some new Eternals and 0701 as well. Those guys were patient as always and hemmed my Jins while I was trying everything on. If Sam 0500 came in their 19oz denim it would have been a tough call, but I already have a few pairs of Samurai and one of them is Texas cotton.

    The cuffs look huge and unflattering. I think it would be distracting and take away from the jeans.

    My 701s shrank up waaay more on the second soak. Both were about two hours soaking in the hottest water my tub would give me, plus an extra 5 gallons of boiling water from the stove
