1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    @fishtaco, you don't want to risk effing up a raw pair of pbjs by trying to make them work for your built.
    senior argentino is right, this cut is just not for you. cut your loss & return/exchange/sell & search for the cut that will work for you.

    I wanna know what a persons build looks like that those are made for! They look like you should have lady hips and a belly in the pelvic area. I am glad I got the one wash 30s because they look nothing close to THAT odd.

    You don't look like that do you?

    Because even if the measurements of one wash and raw don't measure up, it's still the same fit ;)

    I'm glad I have a pair of well fitting 007's. Without the constricting knee/thigh area and a waist that isn't way too big. In fact, it's the best fitting pair of jeans I have (minus the too long inseam).

    I sure hope I don't have a weird looking body. I find it hard to believe those jeans are just what mine look like b4 a wash. Shrinkage must be insane in raws. ...unless that guy got an off sized pair.
    Here is mine with a hem

    yes, my are one wash size 30. The measurements matched BiG's size chart to a "T" except for the waist . It was about 2' shy of what it was suppose to measure but it stretched really fast, within an hour

    So the waist will stretch out a fair amount (1-1,5") and the leg will mostly stay the same. Am I right?

    They might shrink a bit in the leg length too, so don't shorten them first!:D

    there is nothing inherently special about the denim at the waist. all areas will stretch if enough stress is applied to those areas.

    Yes but some denim does stretch more than others.

    Not true. The waist will always stretch the most because of the 90 degree angle the waist is sewn on.

    This is very true - my Pbjs hold their shape much better than my Naked and Famous jeans!!

    And my 21oz Kurabos haven't really stretched all - when I wash them they shrink back to the original size!:)
