Nice. Repped. Denim really is pretty sweet, huh? I think Kiya's FH/Sam Texas cotton comparison is right on the money.

Glad you were able to to get the 32s in NY. I kopped the last 32s on the website. Sorry :rolleyes: Looking forward to getting these.

Post up soak and measurement info if you can. Would love to see if inseam shrinks the full 3" on the first soak.

Re: red tab - Skull and others cut them off for the American market after production, and have to stitch the dagger on there to patch the cut. I'm pretty sure the tag you've got was never sewn on, so if you really care enough, a tailor can do that for you. Other jeans Ive owned have come with the uninstalled tag in the coin pocket.

i think im gonna go 6 months before doing a soak, see what happens

Mine should be in tomm :)

a.khan, I would at least do a 30 min soak to get some shrinkage out of the way. Looking at your fit, you have some room to give and also keep in mind that they will stretch.

i find it crazy that you didnt do your homework on raw denim and soaking before buying a pair of $300 jeans

raw fit looks good though

unsanforized denim is unsanforized denim...regardless of the brand..they should always at the least be soaked or even washed before you start putting serious wear into them.

but i agree..pre-soak pics look good..im sure post-soak will look even better.

I bet you're going to like the fit far better after they're fully dry, if they're a hair snug it'll stretch back out within a few wears.

Kiya were u involved in the design/manufacturing process for the strike gold, or is self edge acting only as a retailer.

Not sure that "Kiya" and "only as a retailer" should be uttered in the same breath.
