Pure Blue Japan

Recommended Posts

I believe I'm ready for the slim straight cut, all the measurements I've taken seem to be alright going by BiGs measurement chart.

I don't have big thighs or legs in general so I should be alright. Thanks for the heads up though!

smart, you didn't size them to be super skinny like I did. Now I'm stuck with tight thighs and boot cut looking legs below the knee

yeah, I'm pretty happy with the fit. Would've liked the legs to be a bit skinnier, but I'm not complaining.

now I'm just thinking about hemming them a bit, cause the inseam's definitely a bit on the long side.

Hey guys, I need your opinion on this. I'm asking for a lady. She recently just got a pair of 1069PP from BiG. I understand that BiG 1069PP are one washed. Are there any stretch in there? Cos she's unable to even zip the jeans, other than that the thighs/legs are fine. Stretch or size up?

depends how huge the gap is from top button to button hole. if less than 2", it's tweakable. since they're O/W, no need to soak. however, for the waist to stretch out, it needs a little manipulation.

wet the top block__ when half dryer, step on 1 end of the waistband & tug on the other end. apply just enough force to stretch them out slowly [little by little] without ripping them apart. wear while wet.

down the line when you need to soak, chuck a stick or hanger that's about the same measurement/equivalent to where you want the waist be. do this every time you soak [until they dry]__ this will temper & prevent the waistband from snapping back to pre-worn measurement. once they've broken in, the denim would be more pliant.

have a minor crotch blowout starting to form (its about .75 cm in size right now)... should I bring it to get it fixed right now or wait till it gets bigger? I mean, if its small and I fix it, will that even help or is it going to inevitably get bigger anyway...

Measures 15.25" waist, crotch out is 11'' 9.5" rise, 35" inseam, 7.5" knee, 7.5" leg opening.

I just received a pair of xx011 OW in the mail today. They're size 33 measuring 34" in the waist and button easily. My best fitting jeans measure 35" in the waist stretched. Should I expect these to stretch well beyond that? Will these just end up ill fitting by the end of the month or is a inch of stretch the maximum? Anybody have two cents to give me?

The general concensus for PBJ is that if they fit in the theigh, you'll be ok. There should be enough stretch in the waist to accomodate that, but PBJ tends to cut the theighs tighter than other brands, so if they fit there, you should be golden.

Does anyone have any experience ordering from the PBJ site? BiG doesn't currently have my size in the pair I want and the official site says it does. Is there any other costs besides what is on the site since it's international? Have people had problems communicating? Etc..any help is appreciated. Thanks.

So I got my PBJs (XX-005s) back from being hemmed, so I figured I'd show a new fit picture.

Perfect fit. Are those tapered? My bad if it's already been answered

Yeah, I sent them out to be tapered because they were just a little bit to loose in the legs. I love the fit now.

Good fit Nigma, you could have gone another two inches at least.

2" on the hem? Yeah I realize I could've, but this was my first time hemming and I wanted to be on the safe side and have them be a bit longer than have them end up too short.

Thinking about picking up the 24oz 005. If I was to order from BIG without a hem, Would I be able to send them back if i don't care for the fit?

      Cleaning out my closet for stuff I don't get to wear as often!  Willing to accept offers.
      1. Himel Bros. Brimaco Raider Cafe Racer - $1750 plus shipping
      This jacket is absolutely insane. Tagged size 36, fits like S. Made with 100% genuine Shinki tea-core horsehide that will gradually fade from deep black to a gorgeous brown as it ages. Weighs in at around 5 pounds and is built to take an absolute beating. Deadstock Lightning zippers, bi-swing back, and of course the absolutely unparalleled quality that David Himel is known for. If you know leather jackets, then you'll know that this is the creme de la creme. Retails for $2450.
      Worn lightly and still has plenty of breaking in left to do. It's a shame that I have to sell this as it's just slightly too small for me. Would totally be interested in trading for another leather jacket of similar quality in a larger size.
      Description from Himel's website: 
      "The Raider jacket is an homage to one of the greatest café racer jackets ever made. Brimaco or British Mfg. Co of Montreal, Canada designed this iconic jacket in the 1950's after attending motorcycle races on the Isle of Man. The jacket has a distinctive British feel with a longer straighter torso and a simple clean back with bi-swing expansion gussets and a long chinstrap. We own so many originals of this great design that it barely required any tweaking, and this model uses our limited supply of original 1950's and 1960's Lightning zippers."
      MEASUREMENTS: 
      P2P: 20" 
      Shoulders: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.5" 
      Back length: 26.5" 
      Front length: 24"

      2. The Real McCoy's M-422A Flight Jacket - $1150 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/mcslLUs7SuOKnR9V2Rdf[/img]
      Absolutely stunning M-422A flight jacket from The Real McCoy's New Zealand. If you know The Real McCoy's, then you'll know that everything they make is of the highest standards, from the material to the construction. This jacket is made with the finest goatskin and mouton fur and is built just impeccably. Faithful to the original details, but superiorly made.
      Measurements: 
      P2P: 21" 
      Shoulder: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.75" 
      Length: 25.75"
      3. Needles/Nepenthes (Engineered Garments) Horween Shell Engineer Boots, resoled by Brian the Bootmaker - $1500 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/ePB7rWcfRrKeG75LT7SO[/img]
      Needles (Engineered Garments) Engineer Boots made with genuine Color No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan in tag size 9UK. I'd say they fit pretty TTS, although there is plenty of room for one to wear thicker socks.
      These were picked up from the Nepenthes shop located in New York City. Needles is the sister company of Engineered Garments (both owned by Nepenthes). This pair has also been re-soled by Brian the Bootmaker (Role Club) and converted to his signature hand-welt. They're really fresh too - worn under 10 times. Truly an amazing pair of boots. Shell cordovan engineer boots are pretty hard to come by, especially ones made with Horween (most other shell engineer boots are made with Shinki cordovan).
      4. The Flat Head 6002W Type II Jacket - $350 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:90/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/RINrxGgSFazJbCpUp1cI[/img]
      Classic Type II jacket by The Flat Head in their Pioneer denim. Gently worn, practically new. Retails for over $500 at Self Edge.

      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5

      Pretty sweet Type I jacket by Evisu. Sick details all over, well worn and faded.

      shoulders 18.5 inches
      6. Iron Heart Indigo-dyed Waffle Work Shirt (IHSH-96) - $225 plus shipping

      Worn a handful of times, not really my style. No damage and in excellent condition. Fits excellent as either TTS or slightly tight as it's a slim fit with a hint of stretch due to the waffles knit pattern, though it's 100% cotton. Shirt is sold out in this size last I checked.
      Beautiful indigo dyed waffle fabric that we think will age amazingly 
      Black cat's-eye buttons 
      Chain stitch run-off 
      Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads 
      All felled seam construction 
      Rinsed, so there should be no appreciable shrinkage 
      Model Sam wears a Medium, Giles wears X-Large in this shirt (rather than his normal Large)

      Shoulders    17.2 
      Length 27.8

      Hey all,

      Welcome to Rivet & Hide. We are a London based premium raw denim store starting life online with plans afoot for a bricks and mortar home in the future.

      We offer free shipping worldwide and our UPS account will ensure a fast and reliable delivery around the world.

      I have been a SuFu member for years sharing thoughts, ideas and countless questions about denim and clothes that are made with heart and soul. This inspired me to set up and finally bring Rivet & Hide to life.

      Some of the brands will be familiar to you but part of the concept is to bring new and less well known denim producers into the sphere and we have worked hard to get that balance right.

      It has been a lot of fun meeting many of the people behind the brands and seeing their skills at work. We have clocked up many miles visiting them around the world making new friends along the way. A shorter trip through the Welsh valleys to beautiful Cardigan Bay to meet the Hiut Denim guys was just as rewarding. A special thanks for all the help and support from Giles & Paula at Ironheart UK and Anders Helseth of Steel Feather.

      We struck gold with a Union Special 43200g which was sourced from California. It’s in mint condition and dates back to 1950. Any hemming requirements can be consummately fulfilled.

      We have measured all our stock individually. We have not relied on suppliers or anyone else’s measurements. Our HOW WE MEASURE guide is based on BiG (thank you) with the addition of a hip measurement.

      We offer a 28 day returns policy with full refunds. Shipping included.

      The launch brands are:

      Railcar Fine Goods
      Steel Feather
      Flat Head
      Real Japan Blues
      Hiut denim co
      Nudie jeans
      Obbi Good Label.

      As we go into the Autumn we will be adding to our launch stock including some more great shirts from The Flat Head’s Winter collection, and introducing you to a new Japanese brand.

      We are planning a launch party hosted by our friends at Kaffeine, Great Titchfield Street, in Central London in the Autumn and will give you the heads up closer to the time. You will be more than welcome to join us.

      Feel free to ask any questions here or contact us at danny@rivetandhide.com or info@rivetandhide.com
