  1. What do you guys think of washing my 710xx in the washing machine at 30 degrees without detergent to shrink down the inseam? Because I have to tripple cuff them now, or I just step on them when im not wearing any shoes. I've done a cold soak and a hot soak, will the washing machine take out some more shrinking of the inseam?
  2. Was ist los? I repped you in the evo thread, but those are amazing!
  3. Was ist los? When did you do your first wash on those?
  4. BrownMetallic: When did you do your first wash?
  5. Don't really know where 2nd is situated, but I bought my 710xx lot 12 from them last week. Guess they got plenty left. So worth a try!
  6. I have a question about Samurais Thunder Soap. How much should I use when Im washing my jeans in the washingmachine? The instructions are all in japanese
  7. Ah thanks for the advice, I will check it out! I went almost true to size, bought size 33 and cold soaked them so they didn't too much. My true waist size is 86cm which is between 33 and 34 inches.
  8. Plalai04: How many months of wear?
  9. Thanks! Yup its double cuffs. The inseam is long as hell since I just cold soaked these, guess I just rock these as they are, since I can't get chainstich here in sweden.
  10. Just got my Samurai 710xx from second, lot 12 with arcs and tabs. Pitty that they got stuck in customs and I had to pay 80 euro, guess I should have avoided the Thunder Soap. But here they are post soak, and I like the fit, went true to size. Will be a pleasure to break these babies in. What do you guys kind of the cuffs, thumbs up or down?
  11. Crosspost from evo thread. Here's my LVC 501 1966, 8-9 months of wear one inital soak and then 2 machine washes at 30 celsius. I can't understand why I always get major crotch blow outs :S Sorry for the bad pics.

  13. Aye, I guess that's a fair deal . I can't wait to receive my 710xx and some nice Thunder Soap!
  14. Im about to order Samurai 710xx from 2nd. My question is, they charge me 5450 yen in shipping cost. Is that normal or is it a bit much?
  15. I need a little help with the sizing of Samurai 710, these will be my first japanese jeans. These are the ones Im talking about: http://en.item.rakuten.com/2nd/sj-s710xx19oz/ I measured my LVC 1966 who fit regular on me, and they are 86 cm in waist and 29 cm in the thigh. I also measured a second pair I own, who are a bit more snug (which I like) and they measure 84 cm in waist and 28 cm in thigh. And a second question, is it good to order directly from rakuten, or is it better to order via a proxy service?
