    Can I get some comments on this fit:

    JB 700sp tagged size 30. Not sure whats happening in the front upper thigh area. I was also a bit sweaty so the jeans where sticking :/

    EDIT: The thigh front is funny cause of how the rise works, it looks ok after I adjusted it a bit (lowered the sides)

    What the heck... didn't even know about these, great price point too. I just bought some APC Petite Standards as a second pair to my Flat Head BSP's. Now I'm considering selling them to get the Japan Blue JB401...

    APC is kind of retarded and doesn't do returns in-store, only in-store credit... lame.

    @ Jay:

    How is the color on the loose weave JBxBO? Like Grand Indigo or more like 0702?

    That is a good price, however I want the ones without the white stripes on the pockets.

    Hello community :)

    So I soaked my pair of Momos (BOMO003) a while ago, and when I wore them for the first time, I noticed only little change.

    and here are the pre/post measurements

    Waist 32 - 31.4

    Thigh 11 - 10.7

    Knee 8.35 - 8

    Leg opening 7.5 - 7.3

    From what I see, nothing much has changed, measurement wise, or fit wise.

    Considering how the jeans are unsanforized and therefore shrink noticeably (hence buy a size up) should I hot soak them again for more shrinkage?

    That's not much. Beware though, thouroughly soaked cottonfibers are more likely to shrink more than when just placing them in a bucket. When agitating the denim, like when washing, first thing will happen.

    More shrinkage is to be expected.

    a bit too flash for me... going for more of a low key look, although I do think it's kind of cool for strictly streetwear, it just doesn't look as good 'dressed up' a tad.
