the first pair i bought fit like yours seafinch, but they were tight on the waist. i wish now i had just stretched them out.. would have saved a lot of money on my part.

Yeah dude.

These fit perfect.

I just wore them out for the first time and the waist is already pretty comfortable.

I'm so stoked on them I mightget the black ones.

I sized 2 from true waist. My problem with the 0500 is that they seem to continue to shrink even after second wash. I would recommend to size 1 from true waist.

so you've washed more than twice already?

and just to get it straight, you sized DOWN 2?

My 710s were bought slightly second-hand (only a few wears). When I got them in the post they were still pretty rigid - although had been hot soaked - but I soaked them cold in the bath for 5 minutes just so they'd dry stiff and then shape more to me than the previous owner. After a couple of weeks they've really softened and the stacks I had have now become pretty... unimpressive - non-existent, particularly above mid-shin.

I assume this isn't normaI as I remember 78 having posted the pics of his after 8 weeks or so of continuous wear and they'd stacked all the way up the thigh ... even when he showed them sat on the floor unworn! Other posters have also shown impressive stacks despite weeks/months of wear.

Think I need to starch or give them a longer cold soak? Or even try something else? It's all about the stack for me so I'd appreciate any advice to bring these back to life.

I sized down 2 inches from true waist. My waist measures 36 and i got size 34, thats how i buy nearly all my jeans. I usually wash after a month of use or sometimes earlier or later depending on how dirty they are.

Looks good seafinch, it's always nice to see size 34 dudes on here.

Thanks.

I'm with you.

I'm always stoked to see good fits in a 34.

I am in the process of trying to stretch out my Jins right now. I have wet them, rammed a coat hanger into the waist, and am waiting to see what effect this will have.

i'm sure it'll sound kind of lame, but i bought this plastic waist stretcher deal off ebay and it works great.

After they've been soaked i just put it in the waist and crank it out to where i want them then let them dry and they're usually perfect.

I was thinking of doing the same. How much did you score one for?

My USAs are already starting to soften up at about a week and a half. I think those Jins might be my next purchase.

On my left thigh right at the end of my pocket, a rogue knot because undone and I had to sear it off, exposing only white threads

I am worried it's going to become a hole due to the friction that occurs there, do you guys have any advice? I don't really want to patch it, because it's so small.

Just leave it alone...if it becomes a hole, you can patch it then.

It was hard to get the last button done, but that was mostly just cause it's so damn hard to button them out of a soak. Once i wore them for maybe 6 hours they were perfect.

Yesterday there was some pain in the backs of my knees - but that wasn't cause they're too tight, just really stiff.

Around $15.

It was worth it - i've used it a few times.

indeed. i've worn mine on and off for about 4 months and everything above the knee is so blue, while below the knee the denim still looks brand new.

That did not go well. I stretched them by hand and rammed a hanger in them, and they seem smaller now.
