Hey xchen, any progress to report here? Excited to hear about it!

I'll probably order them in a few weeks - half waiting to see if there is going to be a restock of the straight leg cut in the lighter weight denim. The super full cut is worrisome to me, but we've pretty much got a full roster of people for the tour.

Great news. Thanks for the update. The 1101 looks awesome too, and maybe a more versatile fit.

flannel shirts are truly amazing sorry bad iphone photo i'll take a few more when i have time. i think this one is my favorite color they have made so far

Why not just exchange it for a size up?

Would love to, but this color has no more size XL. That orange and blue is pretty nice though

Got my heavyweight :) I'm hoping they'll shrink a lot cause right now they are pretty big. I'll post more pics later after work.

Alroght, I am going to go in order. FIT PICS will be in the last post. Or last part of the post..

This is when I first received them (no soak yet). I didn't want to take pre-soak pics of the fit, because it was just... not pretty, Looked about 3 sizes too big.

@ Laxlife: Those fit you perfect imo! Don´t soak them a second time just yet. Let them settle first and then decide...that´s my opinion and my advice...

Great pair though!

I concur with Alex, dont touch them for another couple of weeks and see how they settle. If you're not happy with the fit after that give them a hot wash (no spin).

Lax, I'm envious of your bodytype, your fit pic makes those jeans look very slim. Must spread before repping again.

lax, I wouldn't worry about the fit....If you are just 15 you have a lot of growth within you yet so just keep and wear!

yeah, I wasn't planning on giving them another soak to be honest. the only shrinkage really left is in the inseam, other than that if they look big its cause I sized up one so they'll still fit in two years.

And I'm glad the inseam isn't THAT long. but I still have to wait for these to settle so they are still very stiff so yeah, they arent going to look that great.

Just give them another boiling hot soak and you're all set. That's what I did and I got all the shrinkage out of the way.

I'm going to just let them be for now, I'm more than happy with my fit at the moment, if they are too baggy once everything settles, or I don't like the fit in a few weeks I'm either going to give another hot soak, and if I still don't like them, I'm going to get them tapered.

But, for now I'm not worrying about anything so nothing is going to happen for a while. And thanks to all the compliments, forgot to say that before.

that'd be great.

what would anyone think between their 1105 14oz and 1105ex 23oz?

i actually like that thought of 23oz extra heavy denim. :D

maybe sound weird but i love that feeling.

I don't own either, but I have the 1103ex, and I love the denim. It's really stiff at first, but I wore it all yesterday, and it isn't soft, but I would've thought that it would have taken longer to loosen up, and soften up. /it's stiff, but it's not as stiff as I would have expected it to be. If you decide to go for the 1103ex (even though you didn't say you wanted it), go TTS. That's my only regret, cause I am thinking I am going to give it another hot soak, and if I still don't like it then get mine tapered cause it is flaring out in the hips too much for my liking.

tapering won't help to much with the fit on your hips unless you get your whole leg taken in. on top of that. you're 15 and the plan is to wear that pair at least 2 years (heavyweight contest). your body will change.

and from the pics it doesn't look too bad

^^ yup you have a good fit and i would leave it as is, its better to have a few pairs of denim with different fit's instead of 4 pairs that fit the same..

Thanks guys, I just did another hot soak though, and now I am in love. The length is perfect for either a big single cuff, or a small double cuff without any stacking really. So, I am going to leave as is for now.

Nope, just been wearing them.

Loving the denim and fit.

I've never had the arcuates on a pair of jeans come off so quickly, they're just starting to come apart and it's been 4.5 months.
