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

    This is the truth... flaws are what add character... for both of those [​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]

    ...really nice fit, Aries...

    I'm also a tue 34, but I went true to size and, although I could have sized down 1, I'm liking the less-than-fitted fit on mine... Nice change from my Flatheads and Skulls...

    can't wait to see the pics! my pair is starting to show the first signs of wear on the whsikers. but nothing my shitty cam could capture.



    @whatever123: I always enjoy close-ups. the 19oz denim has so much potential

    @aries: really a great slim fit!
