DenimProject - The Deviants 2013 Contest

Recommended Posts

I'v not received my invoice yet so not paid up but I'm pretty excited to start this contest!

Trying to size them has been a little tricky with the different size charts but given the thighs seem larger than I first thought I decided to go with a 32 which is what I take in virtually everything. Think I'm just gonna have to be careful about only cold soaking. The measurements are very close to my beat up warehouse 1001's so I think they will be okay (fingers crossed).

I was thinking from the beginning, if S01XX is strictly repro of 1946 501XX including texture and shrinkage property, size up 2 is recommended according to the sizing guide. Anyway, raw measurements still useful for sizing once you can easily stretch back to the original size after the soak shrinkage.

How much will it stretch is based on how tight the fit after the soak shrinkage. If the fit is comfy the jeans will not stretch that much, if the fit is tight after soak the jeans will stretch more. But you will suffer the stretch period. Bear with it B)

 

So, the key is whether you feel comfy when you put on your jeans raw state. If the waist and thighs are tight not comfy, sorry for you :(

Most of the stress in my life is not caused by career or family but sizing decisions, Luckily for me (and Eddie) those days when i can buy those beige slacks that you see advertised in the back of the TV Guide with the elasticated waist are not that far off.

Got mines… Best $200 jeans in the world.

 

Fabric feels like vintage XX denim, like how Denime tired to do back in the day. Beautiful.

 

Fit is what I thought. Tighter waist, large legs and tall rise.

^Beautiful! If worst comes to worst on my sizing choice, I'll leave the top few buttons undone and have my belt hold them up haha

 

Also, I'm kind of liking the contrasting color of the "horizontal line" on the back pockets. Who's planning to take them off?

If you guys who received your jeans could post a photo and say you received it.

I'd apprecieate it. as this will tell us who's really in the contest and who's not really.

 

people who have posted saying they're jeans are in customs or received the jeans will have their names with a link in the top thread.

it seems too loose for me..

After hot soaks, the measurement is still loose.

i am size 30 as usually, and size up to 32 for it,

i think i should be 30 on it :(

the waist is 80, width of bottom is 22

i think i am wrong size :(
