    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I believe PBJ sell their jeans one wash to everyone but BiG, because folks in the US enjoy putting cardboard rigid pants in their bathtub so they can put pictures of the "process" on the internet.
    So I assume their measurements are for one wash.


    I did not know that. It makes the best sense. Thanks.

    SharpService is offering proxy services for this from PBJ @ 30% off retail - think they come to about $50 a piece with the discount.

    don't think that's correct. just got a quote from Sharp for a FOB 151 which retails for 23,100 yen__ after 30% disc= 16,170__ after EMS shipping to U.S. +4% paypal = 21,549 [10% proxy fee waived].

    The scarves are about 7,000 yen ($70), if I see the pbj site correctly, which should make them about $50 after everything.

    Yes, the measurements are one wash and for most part PBJs flagshop only stocks one wash denim.

    If you can get these scarves at about $50, go for it. We were selling at $85 with a better exchange rate.

    The grey scarf will not bleed, but the indigo scarf will.

    Can't help you there, I've only worn mine twice. As a side note I cold soaked mine twice after the first wear and it helped the bleeding a bunch.

    ^ Yep, soaking does help.

    I've worn mine a lot and it still looks brand new. I wouldn't expect any sort of fading with these though, if that's what you were asking about.

    there is no leaf motif on any of the buttons of the newer models, just a leaf on the back pocket where the tab should be.
    i have a xx007 that is from 2008 and is of the newer batch and has no leaves on buttons.

    I bought a pair of 005s (one wash) and I'm sort of on the fence about them. I like the fit, but the denim itself is really hairy, bumpy and slubby. It's also extremely dark. I expected a little slubbiness from the pictures I had seen online, but not to this degree. Does the denim smooth out as you wear it? I'm assuming soaks will lighten the color up.
