  1. How does unsanforized denim gain some Oz. When soaked? Is that water retention or something? For instance I see 21oz unsanforized advertised as 23oz after initial soak
  2. Samurai Jeans

    Does anyone know what samurai jeans have the highest rise? I've had the 710xx and it was a little too low for my liking
  3. Pure Blue Japan

    I turned down the temp on my hot water heater, 160* F is hot enough to steep green tea
  4. Pure Blue Japan

    Wow, I must have an unusually "hot" water supply. Using a thermometer, I tested the temp of the "hot" setting on my washer and it was 160* F or 71*C Can this extreme temperature damage the jeans
  5. Pure Blue Japan

    hello do PBJ Raw jeans need to be hot machine washed like the flat head to see maximum shrinkage before wearing??or just soak?
  6. Samurai Jeans

    does the 510xx have a higher rise than the 710xx or is it only the taper that is different
  7. The Flat Head

    Well I am curious as to if the taper is around the thigh/knee area or more around the hem... I am 6'3" and sometimes my knee protrudes into the lower section of the jeans so I would prefer the taper to end more towards the hem if ya see what i mean
  8. The Flat Head

    is anybody rocking to 3012 model ?? seems like a rare one... I need the high rise though
  9. The Flat Head

    inside out??
  10. The Flat Head

    ^ Well.. I have this front loading washing machine and Im not sure if that is going to cause them to get twisted like you would see normal garments.. Has anyone used a front load washer
  11. The Flat Head

    Will 2 separate hot soaks (at least 100*f), heavy agitation by hand inside out, separated by hang drying get all the shrinkage out of the 14.5 3xxxx denim? or will i have to go for a third. I dont want to use my washing machine.
  12. Samurai Jeans

    Can anybody comment on the cotton on the current lot of 710xx? I had a pair of these back in 2013 and remember them being literally perfect... not sure what lot number it was back then... just looking to see if samurai has made any major changes
