DenimProject - The Deviants 2013 Contest

Recommended Posts

First day of wearing them, i'm liking the post wash fit, reminds me a bit of how my Sam S510 fit.

The waist is, like i expected, no problem at all, definitely made the right decision to go with my regular size dispite the somehow a bit confusing measurements.

The denim is still super dark post wash, and i love those little white naps, Taichi really outsourced some great denim.

Im giving my jeans another hot soak and lets see how they go. Im abit reluctant to put them in the wash again as I dont want them to go all soft on me.

Thanks, yes double cuffed, they had less shrinkage yet than i expected at forehand.

I had been planning to wear these no cuff or with a single small cuff.

thanks Aho.  i dunno, my fit looks similar to Mich's.  Mich how tall are you and how much do you weigh?  I've lost some weight since placing the order (and plan on loosing a few more gut pounds) that's why I think a 32 might work better.  Ranon posted some of his other jean measurements and those were pretty similar to mine.

After second very hot soak, inseam was 34.5" raw, shrunk to 32.5" now.  Seat and overall fit, tighten up by not much, but makes a better fit than before this...

I've decided to just run with this pair and make it work along the way, hopefully the fit gets better as the denim soften up

LC, i'm digging that fit.

it's nice to see a variety in fits in these, and will be interesting to watch the differences in fading due to that.

 

^^ best fit so far!

 

Yup, fully agreed.

I'm 1,85m./87 kg. so about 6ft./191 lbs, wear a size 34.

let's see a fit pic tv.

Throwing my pair in for a second wash, hoping it'll get more inseam out of the way! Based off LC, it looks like they get around 2 inches...

Oh my, I am not a contestant, but reading through this thread and seeing the fit pics, I couldn't resist. I purchased a size 32 today. I will do my usual dual hot soak when it arrives and post pics. You guys are looking to be in for a great ride with this contest. I look forward to seeing the updates.
