Thanks for the advice, guys. I'll try it out and see how well this goes.

If everything's as planned, I'll see you guys back here in about a month with some fit pics. :D

[email protected] isn't that 8th grade?

Yeah. Which gives me another idea, since I'm graduating.

Good luck on that kiddo, if you do succeed you will be the most swagga-rific 14 year old of all. I wish you luck.

Yet on the other hand, PLEASE be sure you know which size to get on these because I REPEAT, the thighs are KILLER if your thighs are kinda large-ish. BE WARNED.

I'm very confident about a size 30, because I usually buy 29's and they stretch out, so a 30 should help with the tightness of the thighs.

Well, the problem is that my dad is the one in charge of all the orders, so I can't really do anything on my own. But I doubt I'll have that much trouble; I just need some good convincing.

Besides, when I go into high school next year, I'm going to be the snazziest guy around.

Dude. buy cheap ass raw denim from your nearest gap and hold your wallet untill you stop growing. Seriously

yeah, considering you're only 14, you're bound to grow couple more inches and gain some weight also. i would wait until you've grown to your max height so you won't have to throw away $225 just because you grew out of them.

so size up 1 on xx005 if you have considerable thigh mass?

you will need a serious amount of thigh mass to do that. I'm sitting here in a pair in size 29 which fits perfect on me, and i'm a 30.

personally i think sizing up is good even if you dont have big thighs. i found getting my normal 28 (dior, nudie etc) was too tight for too way too long. 29 would have been more comfortable.

but i've assumed for nudies you would size down one from your true waist

after searching the forums about the pbj store in harajuku and to my disappointment they're all one wash in that store. any other store that sells them raw in shibuya/shinjuku/harajuku area? i'm hoping to get them raw so i can stretch out the legs when i soak them.

i'm pretty much stuck in that area since i'm going with a youth orchestra that's playing in that area. can't really go all the way to ueno without having to drag a chaperone over there.

I think that it's safe to go true to size on the 005's if you have small thighs, or to size up one if you have slightly large thighs. You'll be fucked if you don't. Also, my 008's in a 29 have similar measurements to those of a 005 in sz 28, so if you're going to get a pair of 008's sizing up at least one won't hurt at all.

The models are out of order, should be AI-001 first, and so on. Also, there are the women's slim straights and women's slim flares. Also, the models are all misnamed, it's xx-00y.

I like the thread though. will dig up some xx-007 pics.

Midnight, the AI-001 is easily one of the most slubby jeans on the market :P

I have pretty muscular thighs from running, biking, and swimming, and my size 29 Levi's 511's fit me well, so I'll just go up 1 to account for growing and I should be perfect.

Fit pics of my xx-007s, sz.33, leg opening tapered to 18.5cm(7.3"), because they used to slip over my shoes and i didn´t really dig the pseudo-bootcut.

(sorry for crappy quality pics!)

Wow so i think you convinced me to buy the 007s..... those look amazing. Do they fade pretty slow because the massive amount of indigo. :)

They actually don't seem to be taking too long to fade. Pretty average, I'd say. I highly recommend them. Definitely buy a pair if you can find some in your size or are willing to proxy em.

Truthfully, I was pretty disappointed in how my pbjs held up. The crotch has busted in two spots, going on three and the back pocket stitching has completely come off one side. To make things worse, the denim has become so thin in some areas that the horizontal stitching has completely disintegrated. Granted, I have had these since mid october, but i would hardly consider the wear I gave these "hard" and have had other jeans with similar/lower pricing that have held up considerably better. I don't want to continue repairing these because as one spot is fixed, another spot shows up within weeks. Very frustrated with the fading, as I didn't begin to see noticeable wear until around 6 months and a second hot rinse, which at first I didn't mind, but grew old once the rips and tears came before the fades. If i'm up to it i'll post some pics. These are the 005 model and were purchased at BiG
