Sanforized. Shrinkage will be minimal (3% or something).
Any stretch at all, in between washes? I've muscular legs, but like the slim fit, so not much is needed.
no, the thighs are the most important part to size correctly. If le package and thighs do not fit at the beginning, they will never fit.
I saw the little tag in the JB400sp that says it may shrink up to 3%. That's a far cry from the 10% claim on unsanforized denim, so I'd say that it's just a standard cotton sort of thing. Jay says they're all sanforized.
And Caltex, will get to your measurements in a bit - work's been crazy.
I don't think they sell Japan Blue in Japan. They made the line specifically for international market. Momotaro line would be easy to find.
We ship worldwide. Easy to send you a pair.
That is more of a disclaimer. If you throw your denim in hot water and then cook it in the dryer for a couple hours, any denim will shrink 3%.
Update: Pops found me a pair of Japan Blue tapered straights in Tokyo for 13,000 yen
Long time lurker here, first time poster. I currently own a pair of JB0101s and as much as I love them they're pretty tight in the thighs, so I was thinking of selling them and then moving on to the JB0400sp. Can anyone comment on how they fit compared to N&F WeirdGuys? The numbers look pretty similar and I was gonna go to Barneys sometime this week to see if I could try on a pair of WGs to figure out my size on the 0400sp
Personally, I wear the same size WG and JB400.
Would you say they fit similarly in the top block? Or is one slimmer than the other?
How exactly should the thighs and "le package" fit pre-soak on a pair of 0201s ordered TTS? Loose or slim but not tight?
Depends on your build. For what it's worth, you can easily size down one on the 0201. Thighs are pretty roomy, so is the topblock.
Great! I have an athletic build so TTS will probably work out.
IMO, WG is lower rise, but thighs will measure about the same. The taper is also probably a bit more pronounced on WG, but the cut is similar enough.
I think the 34 will work out very well for you. Assume maybe 1.5 inches down in the waist would put it only slightly bigger than your given measurement. The thighs shouldn't be a huge issue either based on what you've written. Personally, I think the cut will work really well for you.
Personally with your measurements, I'd go for the 36 in the STF 701 (or the sanforized versions of the 701/702). My hips are a tad smaller than yours but I still eventually needed to size up for comfort's sake. I could button the waist and fly on the 34, but it wasn't comfortable enough to be the practical go-to err'day jean I was looking for at the time. My true waist is smaller, and my thighs are larger than yours. The 701 is a fantastic cut of denim - I'd highly recommend it.
My second option before I decided to size up was to just go for a 201. Those are pretty roomy, a standard straight leg with very slight taper for shape's sake. I think you may really enjoy that cut if you're heading MC, as you say
Also. I want your Stark.
