ive read through the thread but i still haven't been able to get a conclusive understanding of the somet cuts.

looking at BiG there are:

003: slim straight?

005: straight?

008: slim fit?

noogsahoy

looking at the BiG measurement 003 is almost the same as 005

just that 003 is indigo and 005 is black

also from the measurements on the site the 003 is very slightly longer and i mean very slightly

dammit okay why are people confusing me now

so im looking for a pair of somets 008 that will fit me. id like a waist simular to KMW rockers in 26 (im a natural waist 26.5-27). i thought somet 26 would be fine, but people are telling me i gotta size down some : (

suggestions?

since they are low rise

you should measure around the hip area because that's where the jeans will sit on for low rise

and looking at the measurements chart on BiG for 008, it shows that the tagged size is 3 sizes smaller than the measurements example: Tag 28" = 31" and Tag 29" = 32"

ok, so i got a 34 in APC NC's, but i could've easily done a 33. it was a safety purchase. a 31 in somet has a 34W, but since they're lower rise, should i go 32 which is a 35W, or even a 33, which is 35-36W?

i dunno how stretching is, and i'd like them slimmer than my APC's are.

Somet's are sanforized

so they don't really skrink nor stretch much

they stretch.

Ive been looking towards a new pair of indigo for awhile now and after seeing the fit pics in here, the 008 slims have been catching my eye. Just curious, I wear about a 27 in DH 19s and those seem to fit me fine. Perfect fit to be quite honest. Should I be looking towards a 26 in these?

a 26 would be good. I wear a 29 in SExIH01s and 27 in dior too, and 26s fit me really well.

i wanna sell my sz 26 008 slims in case anyone is interested. id also trade them for a sz 28.

How much? What is the actual waist measurement? I have a pair of 008 in a 29 and they're waaay too baggy in the wiaist for me.

After my NCs have been slaughtered by me with not even 3 months of wear, I'm looking for a new jean similiar to them, and am falling in love with Somets. I just really want to see some more fit pictures/wear pictures. If any of you could contribute, that would be awesome.

i completely agree with this. i'm still confused about sizing. the BiG site says that a 32 is a 35W... should i assume that they'll stretch much, or can i safetly order these without them being too baggy or too skinny?

the rise is really low, you don't wear these on the belly, but on the hip, hence the larger tagged size.

so im around 35" at the hips... would a 31 or a 32 do the trick? i dunno, im sorta oddly shaped... no torso and whatnot.

I am a 29 in pretty much everything else (nudie, samurai etc) and I just bought 29 in my somets. The sizing was fairly normal for me, I would just use your waist size...mine fit fine although i did sell them because the rise was just too low. I sag mine and still my balls were crunched...plus the pockets are way too small, you can't even get your hand in, even worse than the my NS (I take a 27 in APC's)

i think the actual waist measurement was something like 38.5/39cm, i can reameasure if you want to. i just tried these on, and i still have the somet canvas bag they came in, so maybe 205$ shipped worldwide, which is 50$ less than retail at big. too bad you dont have a 28.

this does not apply as a rule of thumb though, i wear a 28/29 in nudie and 29 in samurai too, but i could fit a 26 in somets without much pain because i have small hips.

Yeah, my natural waist is a 28.5, and I have pretty wide hips so I thought i'd be ok with a 29. It fit just right for the first couple weeks, now it's too big. The thigh is also a bit too big, but that's maybe because I have the 003 and I have really small legs. I would definetely been better off with the 28s, but stretching them out would have been painful, the waist band on mine is still stiff as hell after almost a month.

Hey, looking for the 008's in a 28 to stretch out about an inch to 32 inches, think I'd have any luck? From what I'm reading, it looks fine.

Thinking I might get an inch or two off.

Early days but should I have gone a further size down?

that's the 005, same cut as the 003 indigo but black.

My pair of 005 stretched about 1.5-2" but since I sized down ~3.5 sizes, I really needed them to stretch so I wore them damp etc.

Jeezus...your's look pretty baggy and they're sized down by 2??!?!??!?! They don't look bad...i'm just saying I've never seen that with sized down Somets. Shit, if you can, size down one more (the waist must be retardo though).

Thinking I will have to pass these on ... by the waist measurements I've seen on BiG and on the somet site These shoulda been really tight in the waist(/hips). They are tight enough but nowhere near what I expected/hoped for ... especially since they'll stretch.

If anyone wants them p.m. me; be in the supermarket soon too. Maan.

Just ordered a pair of slim's in a size 28 (w31). It's been a long time since I've broken in a new pair of jeans, but I'm ready to retire my Skulls.

Stoked.

Jesus, you sized down 2 and 3.5 on your 003's? I took my normal size and the fit is better than any pair of jeans I've ever worn.

actually, I was a bit confused about my true waist. I sized down about 2 (not 3.5), and yeah, that was a mistake. My proportions are a bit off so I thought those were better fitting in the legs which is why I decided to get them. Would've been perfect if I went up one size.

^only if you don't mind showing pube. the rise is just too low to slouch, at least in the smaller sizes.

These jeans are an incredibly tight fit, but I managed to button all the way. I really like the stacking:D
