samurai denim contest [pics]

A midterm tomorrow, and several MSN and AIM convos going on at the same time. I'm scared that the waist is gonna get too tight. Oh what to do what to do. I think I'm gonna be the only one who soaks with me IN them.

AFK warm soak for an hour while I study for the midterm, book sitting on the toilet seat.

I just hemmed mine up two inches and I think it looks a million times better. The stacking just didn't look quite right. Also for anyone wondering, if you use the Singer brand 'blue jean thread'... its perfect. It matches the samurai inseam EXACTLY.

Not a good idea dude. Your skin will start to get wrinkly and nasty after about an hour or so. Better just stick the hanger in the waist to prevent them from shrinking.

Poly,

The fit of those jeans is great. Are they pretty snug all around or does it just look that way.

Any of y'all rub your legs raw with that stiff ass denim yet?

Yeah, definitely looks like a nice fit. Anyone with post-shrink measurements on a 32 or 33?

I soaked mine today, no camera though, I'll come up with one before I start wearing them. I wore them in the tub for an hour, hot as the water would get. Maybe that's not enough time/heat? Should I re-soak with the hanger trick? anyways I'll grab a paper tomorrow and borrow a camera and either soak some more or take a pic of the standing denim, to show they havnt been work prior to now. Hope this is alright.

The reason why I decided to soak in the tub was because I probably shouldn't have sized down.

I'm becoming less and less of a fan of the fit on my jeans. I feel like the thigh is so big and the taper so intense... I'm getting an oompa loompa effect.

Out of everyone so far, i like your presoak fit the best! It would be awesome if you retained a similar fit after the soak.

I agree, azn8oi's fit was the best in my opinion

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what Samurai's are being used in this contest? Is it the S0500XX Ltd. Ed. (100% Texas Cotton)? If they are, I was wondering how they felt because it seems like the shorter fibers could become annoying or itchy. Also, how do these compare to the S5000VX in terms of fit and type of denim used?

I just wanted to get opinions first to see if I needed to soak again?

I soaked Tuesday night for about an hour while wearing the jeans in the tub, I was afraid I didnt get them completely shrunk so I stuck them back in the tub for another 2 hours yesterday and wore them as they dried. I'll post pictures of the fit later today.

Looking good ! All of them....

Just an opinion - since somebody asked for comparing S0500XX / S5000VX

The Texan Cotton feels way more slubby ( especially after soak) really amazing texture...

The cut is not that different - slightly more tapered - maybe a tad higher in the rise.

Hard to say which I prefer - but I am amazed that the SO500XX feels as stiff and thick as the S5000VX - 15 oz verses 17oz - but it feels just as thick

I am talking to 386 and some other guys about the website - will get back to you on this one....

emaze, my s5000vx did something kinda similar. i'd just stick with it. i got a really cool diagonal line that goes across my crotch now, and after the 2nd wash, it just flattened out and went away. kinda weird, but it looks cool in my opinion. shows off those cool buttons
