  1. What's the best way to achieve a low-contrast vintage fade? I'm assuming just machine wash often but would love to hear from the pros.

    Does anybody have fit pics of their TTS Momo 0105SPs?

    Thanks for the sizing help so far. Do SDAs continue you shrink tighter after subsequent washes through the leg?

    Ahh I see, on the upside, at least the denim sounds stable. But does it continue to shrink smaller and smaller like one user suggests?

    Estimating where the jeans will sit, my waist measures 32". The waist of the OW jeans measure 31.5", so I think I went pretty TTS. Unless of course you think I should size up.

    Does the waist not stretch out as you wear them?

    Mie from Denimio measured an actual pair for me. Haha, I like the vintage fade but a vintage fit has never flattered my body shape or height!

    Thanks! About to pull the trigger on a pair of SD-108s. Being only 5'7" I think the cut would be less slim on me given the hemming would cut a chunk off the aggressive taper, and that the rise would actually come up higher for me. Interesting thing is that I was quoted a 12.2" thigh measurement for a pair of 31s, which is similar to your 34s. Hopefully they'll fit they way I envision them to. Fingers crossed.

    Are SDAs good for vintage fades?
  10. Any real lifters cut people can recommend with high rises that is also premium quality? I think PJB XX-019 is too slim for me.

    Buying my first pair of Momotaros but I've got two questions; hopefully you guys can help me. How much more shrinkage can I squeeze out the waist and length from a "one-wash" pair? How much do they stretch in the waist for the 15.7oz house denim? Thanks guys!
  12. Hi guys, Does anybody have any recommendations for quality skinny jeans, and by skinny I mean super skinny, like close to paint on?
