what are people experience's with the sg2109 shrinking and stretching. worried that mine might be a little tight before the initial soak. I want a pretty slim fit so I think I'm going to warm soak and tough it out. Let me know what you guys think.

Warm soak for 30 minutes should be perfect on those, the 21xx series shrinks less than the 11xx series so you should be fine.

You better stitch that up quick, because once a chainstitch comes undone it will unravel the whole way pretty easily.

I don't know why people like chainstitched hems so much. Chainstitches are designed to fall apart easily. That's why it's the stitch used to close bags.

Hello everyone, I'm new in this forum and this is my first post :)

This is my fit pic with SG2109 for 1 week (2 hot soak)
i'm pretty satisfied with the overall quality of the jeans. By far the best in my opinion.

What do you guys think of the fit?
Do i need to hem them to remove the stack?
I'm afraid it will make me look shorter because of the stack (Im kinda short, about 1.61 meter or 5.3 ft)
Or just leave it like that?

Thanks for the opinion :)

Hot soaked my 2109's last night. These jeans are fucking rigid as hell. Damn buttons were harder/more painful to do than my 666OD's were. the fit is great though and i am loving the color of these jeans. will post fit pics later today/tomorrow.
