    The fit is great, jeans look amazing - I assume you're going to make the inseam shrink through daily wear, and then hem it? Can't wait to see your results, I'm thinking of copping a pair like that in the somewhere in the future.

    I got the O/W and they were too tight on me so I'm in the middle of swapping them out for the RAW ones and doing my own soaking. They look fantastic too.

    why did it end up being tight on you? did you measure your waist and compared to BIG`s chart?

    too tight on the waist or thighs? 011s are cut bigger, so it's a SD1 in raw. here's the thing__ if you get the O/W, you either TTS for a comfort slim or [if you sized down 1 for a slimmer fit], you need to cold soak the top block & stretch while still wet.

    I can't imagine anyone sizing down on the O/W... They're soooo slim already...

    how much is the average stretch on the o/w? if any? does this apply to all pbj o/w jeans or do they somewhat vary by model?

    They look good. I'm just shocked by your complete lack of a butt.

    IME, they stretch out really easily in the waist, I got about 2" of stretch there within a few weeks with my last pair of O/W PBJ (they were XX-007s). They don't stretch that much in the hips and thighs, though, at least not through normal wear.

    Hey all... Interested in purchasing a pair of xx-013's and was wondering about sizing... I'm a 33 in the NC-011 one wash... How should I size on the blue 013's?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    There's a disclaimer on BiG that the 13 and 11 are the same cut. I'd just go with the same 33.

    @Malaujai

    Those are pretty amazing. I wish I could fit the 11 cut.

    I'm amazed that people can get fades that high contrast and widespread without any exposure to water. My denim just doesn't want to.
