    ^1stly, PBJs will stretch a lot down the line.
    2ndly, 005 & 011 are slightly different cuts. 005s are cut straight with zero taper from knee to hem__ while 011 got approx 1" taper from knee to hem.
    3rdly, both cuts are slim @ the thighs. so, if you have "thigh" issues, these might not be cut for you.

    the PBJ 011 is cut a bit generously @waist__ so, you normally size down 1.
    from your description, W30 RAW should be alright.

    now, on 011 O/W, if you're able to squeeze in & button up a W30, that should be just as good, too. the waistband got nowhere else to go, but stretch out [since it has already been shrunk close to max].



    btw, nice & comfy fit there, Argentino.

    is it safe to assume that raw pbj will shrink to 1wash sizing after a few days / weeks?
    and after that, will it stretch back to raw sizing or even bigger?
    thx b4

    Raws just won't shrink on their own. They need to be watered and dried aggressively to shrink down as much as the o/w versions. After that, they'll usually stretch decently in the waist - everything else roughly stays put.

    In other news - double hot soaked my XX003s today to sub into the lineup as I grow tired of my '47501s. Great day for new denim. :slayer:

    I don't think you'll have issues with it stretching too big. The waist maybe, but that's more easily controlled w/ a belt. Other than that, looks like a spot-on fit. Enjoy!

    Would the one wash measurements for the X-011 be a good indication of what the raw measurements would be after I soak them?
