    Interest check: Denimbridge contest

    Seems so as the only numbers that have changed from @Bobbo‘s posted numbers are the waist measurements, which I think are a result of measuring the inside circumference of the waist. The waists seem big. I’m waiting on @Bobbo to post his measurements this weekend before ordering because going up +2, as recommended, yields a bigger waist than I’m looking for... Getting a size 35 would bring the washed pants to a waist of 33.8 instead of 33. Jeans look great though and I’m excited for them. It’s also worth noting that if you want your jeans raw you have to state so or else they will come one wash.

    Oh I really shouldn’t but I think I’m in. Luckily we are the same size so I’m looking forward to those size 35 post-wash measurements @Bobbo!

    Generally speaking I wouldn’t think the one ounce would help much but i’ve read that the banner denim wears pretty light, maybe a bit of a looser weave.

    @jsky808080 The 800s are 14.5oz and I also found them to be a bit heavy for warmer climates. I don’t own a pair but I think the 1001 might be a good option to check out. It uses their banner denim which I think is 13.5oz and is a tad roomier than the 800 throughout.

    I sold them pretty soon after as I found them to be a bit heavy for my climate so they didn’t get much wear. I’d listen to @Maynard Friedman on that, his advice to my questions has always been spot on.

    @heyson I’ll add that I like a 32.5” waist after shrinkage and before any stretch and a size 33 in the 800 model fits me really well.

    @goodrain on the R01 I think you can very safely size down one. I’m usually a 33 across the board but these 32s still leave plenty of breathing room. Not sure what the cut difference is but those big bro 2’s in a size 33 look great on you!

    Lately, on my warehouse 800 c/l’s, i’ve been liking a larger single cuff cuffed a bit higher for sneakers. I’m thinking about going the same route with these but will still need around 3 inches hemmed off. Short legs.

    Finally got around to washing the Roy x Self Edge R01's I picked up a couple weeks back. I washed them twice to get all the shrinkage out, once through the machine on warm/delicate and once hot/normal. It seems the hot wash was overkill though as the measurements were the same pre/post that last wash. Roy x Self Edge R01 tag size 32 Measurements after Roy’s 15 minute soak. Waist - 32 Front rise - 12.5 Back rise - 16.5 Thigh at crotch - 13.5 Thigh 1” down - 13 Knee 14” down - 9.5 Hem - 8.75 Inseam - 35.25 Warm machine wash Waist - 30.5 Front rise - 12 Back rise - 16 Thigh at crotch - 13.25 Thigh 1” down - 12.6 Knee 14” down - 9 Hem - 8.5 Inseam - 33.5 Thanks to everyone who helped me size these, the 33s would have been too loose for my liking. They could definitely still use a trip through the dryer but I'm going to wear them as is for a bit and embrace the extra air flow.

    I settled on the pair I snapped pictures in, the 32s. I’m planning on giving them a warm machine wash later this week and i’ll be sure to follow up with the fit.

    Thanks for the feedback @ecsong187! I’m glad I checked in with you fine folk before sending these back for a bigger size. I’ll update the fit when I get a chance to wash these next week. Again, much appreciated everyone.

    @mpukas I decided to follow through with my gut and size down after reading that you did the same and liked the results. There is definitely room for shrinkage in these 32s and I do like a fitted top block. If it weren’t for so much information about how much the black seed denim shrinks I wouldn’t think twice about keeping these 32s. @FeloniousMonk they are in deed similar to the OA01 and good to know you sized -2 going from the ooe to the roys. Seems like either way would be okay, it’s just hard to say how much shrinkage is left in these after their initial 20 min soak. @goodrain, @Broark, @Maynard Friedman, @FeloniousMonk, and @mpukas I appreciate the help!

    Here is what the fit of the 32s look like. If they were raw I would say I need a size up. With the 20 minute soak already in I'm not sure what to expect. I am kind of leaning towards a size up and hot washing them and if need be a dryer session or two, although I'm not big on the dryer.

    It’s a really wide cut so it feels like it could use some shrinkage all around but I can tell I am going to like the cut a lot. I’ll get a picture of the fit when I get home later.
