But we can expect about 2 inch shrinkage and how much will these stretch?

Hey Tilmann, would you kindly add leyori to the back-up list? Thanks a lot!

^Indeed, I expect a shrinkage between 1-2" from the raw size, so that they shrink to tagged size, give and take a bit. And with consistent wear, they should stretch back, maybe almost unto raw state, if they're pushed hard. But this is not what I would recommend.

Not confirmed, if it's free. Hemming + chainstitch is possible and we try to get it for free, but we have to wait until the final deal + contest package is packed.

For the length, would shrinkage be around 2" as well (based off of b-F's measurements)? For some reason I would expect more?

Like I said earlier, a total exact prognose will be hard, depending on the different lot characterstics. But I am almost 100% sure, that the inseam will be at least 36-36,5" post-soak. So yes, around 2" seem likely. LVC for example shrink more than Samurais in general.

i'm down with a sz 28 guys. and if hemming is possible. 32" hemming would be the best. :)

looks like everything is falling well into place!

edit: woah. wait. it shrinks about 1-2 inches. then i suppose 33 inseam would be better.

Just to increase the excitement, I took these lines from the BiG site:

"About Samurai's Texas Cotton Denim:

The S0500XX uses 100% Texas cotton which is famous for being a "rough" cotton due to it's high amount of short fibers. Normally, the short fibers are removed to make a smoother fabric, but Samurai adds more short cotton fibers to make the yarn even rougher. The result is a yarn that is highly uneven in size, making the woven fabric very "slubby" (irregular). Moreover, while most jean manufacturers mix different cottons from various areas, Samurai uses only 100% Texas cotton in the S0500XX. Even the thread is made of 100% Texas cotton. This creates a jean that captures the essence and spirit of this tough Texas denim.

Like all Samurai jeans, the S0500XX uses 100% pure indigo with no fillers, using the maximum amount of indigo that the yarn can hold. Weighing in at 15 ounces, Samurai also maximized the tension of the weave, so that after washing, the denim actually becomes even more stiff and the weave even tighter. This is the first time Samurai has done this, resulting in a jean with unprecedented "atari" (fading). "

If SE does this on pairs, that weren't purchased there, no problem.

You bet I do as well. It's hard to keep your hands from touching these jeans when wearing them.

And the girls can throw away their ladyshavers...

(Edit: Now I wasted my 1000th post for this proof of my rapid brain cell loss. Oh well, so be it.)

Hi Guss. I will answer your pm later or tomorrow. For the shrinkage. 2" in The waist cann happen especially with more washes. Inseam will end at 36. Maybe even less with washing.

I am set on 29 now. As for inseam, I am totally undecided if I want stacks or not. These would look good though since they are relatively skinny, no?

^no...well a 29 maybe but a "normal" size +31-32 they pretty much are a straight cut imo!

Cuffs it is...

+1 on that. With a 9" leg opening (in w 34) they are more like a regular straight cut, even if it's one of Samurai's slimmer fits.

Yeah, well thats what sucks, it is literally a skinny cut if you go with a 30 and down. I mean if the L.O. shrinks about .5" that is a 7.25" leg opening on the 29, which would mean it is a pretty skinny cut. You know what I am going to have these hemmed but enough so they will stack. All my other jeans are straight leg jeans so when stacked they don't look as good.

So where are we getting the jeans from? Can we go and buy them from wherever and whenever? Or is this package thing being set up with a shop..

^I believe this is going to be sponsored so it will be through a shop in japan (yet to be announced).

Indeed, we will announce it soon, maybe in the upcoming week. but unfortunately you "must" buy the pair from the sponsor which is a professional store). Yet, if everything works out the way we planned, it will definitely be worth it and come with good arguments not to get the jeans elsewhere.

(and even b_f buys the same pair a second time, to be in the contest!)
