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.

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.

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.

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

      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.
      Size: 40 (no such thing as S/M/L) 
      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5
      5. Evisu No. 2 Type I Jacket - $130 plus shipping

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

      opening 19 inches 
      sleeve 24.75 inches 
      overall length 23 inches 
      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

    • By Danny @ Rivet & Hide
      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 [email protected] or [email protected]
