    I got the 710xx's.

    I may have a different definition of streaky I guess. They just seem to have a lot of white running down them which is some of the first denim I've had look like this. I guess it's just the weft shows prominetly.

    oh okay ... yeah, that makes sense [​IMG] the 710xx denim and cut is about as good as it gets so im sure you will love them. samurai goes WAY above an beyond when it comes to details! its totally normal for them to be tight after a wash/soak but as long as they fit well in the upper-thigh you will be good to go ... the waist will stretch out accordingly so dont worry to much about that. post pics when you can.

    the heavier denim is streaky but less slubby compared to the Texas Cotton, Zero denim and 19oz denim.

    Came today. [​IMG] The last pair I could find with the old arcs&tab in my size from a regular shop. It's Lot.12 and size 34x36. Pre-soak measurements: waist: 34,5" * front rise: 12" back rise: 16" thigh: 14" knee: 10,25" leg opening: 9,25" inseam: 38,5" *note: the Lot.# means shit. Get the guys to measure your pair or just deal with it Leather patches is one of the biggest I have on my Samurais and the one with the cleanest surface. Looks almost artificial [​IMG] Colorful flasher [​IMG] As I said, with the old contrats arcs [​IMG] [​IMG] Pre-soak fit pic [​IMG] These will be stored in my closet for a long time

    That sounds a lot like me. I have considered Samurai's to be my Grail for awhile and I finally got a pair and they exceed everything I could have imagined.

    Biff I do the sam thing! Or i'll be sitting in class and just be staring at the denim. Taking in every nuisance in the denim. I can't get enough of them. My gf makes fun of me!

    Flaws are what make things perfect. That's why I like my denim like I like my women.

    lol, thats awesome. i often stare at my samurais as well ... im glad im not the only one.

    most people dont understand why we are obsessed until they actually handle them in person. dont be surprised if you have bitches asking you where you got your jeans in your partial differential equation (pde) class ... its really strange [​IMG]

    9 at the moment. I was asked today to take a pic. I'll share it with you. [​IMG] No.9 is the contest pair and I wore it while taking the pic I recently sold my S0500XX and S710XX to get both in one size bigger. The S0500XX are already on its way from Canada (hopefully)

    Alright, I first soaked in teh tub and then washed my new S0510XX in the machine (40°C, no detergent, some salt) and here are the results

    S0510XX 34x36 Lot.12
    (pre - post)

    waist: 34,5" - 32"
    front rise: 12" - 11,25"
    back rise: 16" - 15,5"
    thigh: 14" - 13,5"
    knee: 10,25" - 9,875"
    leg opening: 9,25" - 8,75"
    inseam: 38,5" - 36,5"


    I ironed them afterwards. Again unwanted fadings with the wash. This was really the last time I will soak my jeans this way. Nothing serious but it annoys me.
    Put them on and no problems buttoning them up. So it's fine.

    bf: did those really shrink down to 32" in the waist? that is so tight but they look to have stretched out nicely.

    i never thought to use salt with a wash ... thats not a bad idea.

    Tilmann, I agree with you. All those scratches and creases that the machine puts in the denim annoy me, so I've only been soaking and hand washing lately. Eventually, I'll do a machine wash, but not on a newer pair of jeans again. I finally did my second soak on those contest S0500JX-LRs. The baby's been under the weather the last couple of weeks and vomited on them, so it was more of a hand wash than a soak. Fit is just about perfect now, I'll post up some fit pics when I can convince my wife to take them.

    One month update on my S710XXs. After sizing down one and fearing initially they'd never fit, I think they've stretched out perfectly for a fit that doesn't require a belt on the waist to keep them where I want them, which is nice. [​IMG]

    i think they look fantastic. i have the same issue with my indigo 710s ... im usually a 34 but sized to a 33 in my indigo 710s. i will post some pics later to get your opinion. in the meantime, here are some nice close-ups of the 710xx denim. I havent worn these at all ... working on several other projects at the moment. [​IMG] this is close to the actual color of the demnim [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
