not much. these jeans have a fairly high rise. these jeans didn't shrink all that much and i gave them a very hot soak for probably 30 minutes.

well thought my 2109;s were a little too loose and felt (knew) i didn't get all the shrinkage out i could so i threw them in some almost boiling water for about 20 minutes and threw them in the dryer. the fit now is 10x better got soooo much more shrinkage out. almost fit like my 666od's but just a tad roomier in the thigh.


will post up pictures tomorrow.

My fresh pair of sg1105s, 1 x 45 hot soak and air dry, 1 x 30 min boiling soak and 20 mins in tumble dry, then air dry.

To all those worried about throwing jeans in the dryer, seriously don't worry too much (unless you're trying to avoid shrinking, then worry). 20-30 mins in the dryer alone won't murder your fades unless you chuck a few rocks in also.

Second day of wearing:

thinking of getting one of these awesome sweaters from sg, but im not sure on the sizing. ive got a buzz sweat in size m, that fits fairly well. (its almost too short and a bit bulky in the.. armpit area but still my favorite sweater) so, s or m? id love it if someone who has tried on both could give me some advice!

I would try a medium, the strike gold sweaters shrink when washed quite a bit and the small was way too tight even before a wash on me. I fit the medium in BR fairly well.

Great sale corporalclegg, but too small for me.

My current Strike Gold 1103 bought second hand with a little bit of wear and 2 weeks of wear since I have them.

Just about to get some 2109's but I'd be grateful for a bit of advice regarding size, I've read through this full thread but still a bit unsure and as I live in the UK exchanging them would be a pain.

I'm a 34" waist but not sure whether to go for a 33" or a 34" any suggestions?

Thanks :)

my recollection of trying on both the 2109's & 1109's was that i could size down without too much trouble. i'd go the 33. the denim will always stretch back to pre-soak, and beyond.

For sizing down, to reiterate what Kiya has said before, pay more attention to ALL OTHER measurements THEN waist.

You can always adjust the waist with a belt, but if the thigh etc. is too tight, not much room for stretch.

Pay attention to the rise and the potential for shrinkage with a hot soak. You might want to go true to tag size.

Yeah I think it's good advice to go true on size when you plan to wash or soak them.

^^^^And thanks smittybat and sorry layne about my monster cuffs. I could never ever cut or hem any piece of a raw denim pants. It would break my raw denim heart

^^And baldy: Sorry about my ugly shoes. I just grew up wearing open shoes my whole life except when raining or snowfall or when I'm hiking

^^ryansuu:

Those SG are looking great after 6 month of wear. Super great fadings on them.
Are they still unwashed?
If yeas, wait fro washing!

about the TTS this, i guess it depends on the fit you want. i just went TTS and they for sure dont fit how i was expecting.

now im on 400 on a pair of jeans.

anyone looking for a pair of SG2109s in a tagged size 34 let me know. Been hot soaked once, not worn for over 5 minutes. If anyones intersted shoot me a PM and lets work something out. id like to get some money so i can try another pair..
