Post soak fit looks spot on! It's crazy how much this denim is shrinking

Some quick crummy post soak fit pics. I went a tad small with these since I hate having to pinch extra fabric with a belt (ahem.... xx012), this will also serve as a motivator to lose the 5 pounds I've gained in the past few weeks shoving my pie hole. I rotated the pics, sorry guys.

Edit: thanks for rotating the pics. 

 

The angle makes it hard to tell how well they fit. Did you take measurements pre/post soak by chance?

Sorry for the angle. I didn't take any post soak measurements unfortunately. They're a tad tight in the thighs right now as a motivator to lose some damn weight. It was close according to the size charts online and I didn't want to size for my thighs when it was doable otherwise.

nothing really new to report here, but hopefully a bump will inspire those lurking in the shadows to post. 

 

went to see my blazers play the pistons (and lose)

in the process of stepping and stretching up an aisle after we got busted for "upgrading" our seats, i immediately heard some threads start to blow. oops. not too bad, thankfully.

i've been using this wallet for ages now, but it used to be a natural waxed canvas, now indigo from being the goto wallet for breaking in jeans.

the jeans are still bleeding quite a bit, and some fading is starting to happen. not sure what to expect here, but i'm stoked to see what transpires. i'll post some detailed pics in a week or two.

Hey guys, super excited to wear the shit out of these jeans. Unfortunately I'll be traveling in a hot climate for a little more than a week and won't get to wear them then but I'm still looking forward to breaking them in.

it's beatle's call, but fwiw i don't mind, as long as people "post" their commitment. def send a private message, though.

a crude representation, but you get the idea. when you can't get out of either end of the aisle, you gotta stretch!

 

the indigo sheds constantly on these-- i've been wearing 'em 3-4 times a week, a few hours at a time. i think things should start to get interesting quite soon, however. they'll be hitting the wash soon. shout out to william aka rodeo bill and tender. about to grease up this patch with some tallow.

Just got the green light from beatle about joining the contest!

Here are my fit pics. 

 

Picked up the SG SD009LTD yesterday from SELA.

Size 31, warm soak, then hemmed to a 30 length.

Sized up 1 from my normal size. Also got the tab stitched back on.

Pretty stoked on fit. What do you guys think?

Got a pair of these in from sesf over the weekend, the blue looks amazing. Haven't gotten around to soaking them yet, hopefully I sized it properly, I went one up. After trying SGs on, I put on my 301s and they felt like sweatpants in comparison. Definitely looking forward to breaking them in. Hopefully not too late to take part in the contest!

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, how could a company have any influence on participation other than incentivizing via a price (which Self Edge has done)?

I was looking back for the "sales pitch" comment by a former member, it seems they have been censored and deleted.

 

Hoggreaser went back through every one of his superfuture posts and deleted them all after getting upset in the Strike Gold contest thread. I can't imagine how long that would have taken given his post count... It's now shitted-up a lot of older thread conversations though maybe that was the intention.
