  1. I ordered a pair of NC-013 in the no fade black. Should be here today. I hope this ends my black jean search.

    Hey,
    I'm finally looking for a pair of PBJs, but unfortunetaly they are hard to get over here in Germany so I hope you can help me out.

    I'm looking for a tapered fit, so the xx-011 or -013 would be the best fit, I guess.

    At the moment I wear some Naked & Famous Weird Guy Deep Indigos in Size 30, the actual waist size after stretching a bit (lain flat on the ground) is 16,5 inches but they could be a little smaller in the waist.

    I actually like the fit and looking for something similar with the PBJs. Which size would you recommend?

    I'm also planning to wear em for about a year without washing so I should probably go with the raw and not the one wash model, am I right?


    you can see the fit here:

    Appreciate every help!

    just throwing this up before I post them for sale:

    I have a Brand new with tag PBJ xx005 tagged 34. One wash version. abit too tight for me thus selling. willing to take on a significant loss from the retail price.
    also i have a pbj xx007 also tagged 34 in my listing below.

    contact me if you are interested. able to take pics, measurements, etc.

    Whats the maximum the inseam shrinks to on the raws? 35 inches?

    I still have to cuff them a few times after a wash and hot soaking just the legs. I picked up the 011's and im a little unhappy with the taper from the knee down, it flares a little too much for my liking but im hoping they might drape a little better once they soften up?

    Really? I don't think it's too bad, especially when compared to the 007s.

    Are xx011's not as slubby as the rest of PBJ denim? Also, how much stretch in the waist should I expect to to get with the xx011?

    I've been looking at the 11 as a future purchase as well. From it's look, I wouldn't say it's as slubby as a 005 or 003. Stretch I'd probably guess would be the same as all the other PBJ's I've owned - maybe up to 1.5+. Waists on PBJ are traditionally pretty forgiving.

    Thanks, do you think the "washed measurements" on BiG would be the same as a pair of the raw one's after an initial soak? I'm having a tough time trying to figure out what size I'd be when taking into account shrink and stretch. This is all just wishful thinking though, it will be a while before my next purchase. For reference I ordered a size 32 in the Momo 003's for the contest ;). Can't be working on both of these at the same time!
     

  16. you probably won't get them as small as the OW measurements. maybe if you threw it in the washer, but definitely not with just a hot soak.

    Yes^^ OW is as small as it'll ever be. Raws can reach that measurement through hot water and hot drying. You can only stretch out from OW measurements. Absolute baseline.

    So if I'm a 32 in the waist would you recommend going TTS, or up or down 1 on a raw?

    I'd use the o/w as a "maximum shrinkage" rule. I bought raws before but always ended up needing to move them on as they became too tight. You're going to have to wash them sometime, so just buy a o/w now and get the worry out of the way.

    I wouldn't buy raw - buy o/w. If you're dead set on raw, buy the size you would need in the o/w anyways.

    Cool thanks so much, that's some great advice. Especially since I can't try them on in person before I order there is just too much that can go wrong. Thanks again!
