Haven't updated these in forever.. They are in some serious need of repairs especially on the front pocket and crotch area. Love them so much. Soon they'll get their 3rd wash (when I get them repaired).

Ugh those look so good.  How long have you been wearing those?  Seems like you got them ages ago.

I just realized I've had them for 2 years. Got them in May '13 from SENY. 

 

I also have my SG2105's on the burner because the crotch and back right pocket both need to be repaired.

Looking awesome LAX!

 

Funny, all of my jeans (4 pairs) are in for repairs right now and I'm very tempted to head to SELA right now and pick up the 5109...

Been to SE PDX the other day - looks like I will be back next WE in order to get a pair of SG5105.

Not sure about sizing & shrinkage.

Managed to fit into a raw W32. Based on what I read and what the friendly staff told me it is possible to get them to stretch back to original waist measurement...

Any opinions?

My 2105 (same cut, different fabric) are TTS. I think either would work, it just depends on whether you would prefer them to be a bit more fitted.

The 5105's shrink A LOT. They stretch easily enough, but if you're on the fence between 32 and 33, get a 33 for sure. The waist stretches easily past raw measurements, but it's not so easy to get the thighs stretched back out. I went with a size 32, and they shrank way more than I expected, and they are slimmer all the way down the legs than I was hoping. They still fit, they're just a lot slimmer than I was going for with this pair. I wish I would have went with a 33.

^ What he said above, the 51XX fabric does seem to shrink more than say the 21XX fabric.

I have both in the XX05 cut and I feel like the thighs and everything else on the 5105's are slimmer than the 2105's in the same size.

+1 to these comments 

 

The only thing I'll add is that in looking at the size charts, I don't think sizing up will get you much extra room anywhere except the waist. Increases in 1" increments in the waist size only add 1/4" or so to the thigh & rise measurements. The waist will stretch a lot, but I've found the thighs, etc. will stretch minimally, and the rise none.

Many thanks for the advice - will be going into SE PDX to check out size W33 before I'll make a decision...

@Foxy - if you decide to go for a size 32, my 5105 with 5 days wear are still for sale at a very good price. All the shrink is out.

Was contemplating this earlier...

If I decide to go with a W32 I will certainly reach out to you!

Check out Rawrdenim's fade of the day of 5105's: first serious evo we've seen, I think, of the 51XX denim.

there is still lots of indigo left in them, 4 washes at 8 months isn't really frequent at all. the texture is really nice!

That 51xx denim looks incredible and comfortable. I wish the thighs weren't so snug on SG cuts. 

 

I'm selling a pair of SG1109 size 33 if anyone is interested (hot soaked, worn 3 times).

New SG cut is coming out this fall which has more room in the thighs with a medium rise!

Seems like this is the cut of the past few years, like the 633s, stevenson valencia, etc

From the sample I saw, it looks like it's going to be closer to the 633s than the 714 valencia. I'm very excited about this cut. The 633s cut is great.

Is the new cut going to be accompanied by a new denim? Sure hope so!
And I agree with Young, the 633S cut is gold.

Can't wait to wear this with faded jeans or shorts.  It's a bit dark, but here is fit pic of the polo.
