I´m about to buy me a par of S5000VX 21oz. What size would you guys recommend me to get? I wear size 33 in my S0500XX and size 34 in my studio d'atisan 103. And do they stretch alot?

I have no personal experience, but from what I've read, you're going to want a 34. The heavier weight Samurais (such as the 21oz jeans you're going to purchase) usually measure about an inch smaller pre-soak than the size chart says.

And the 21oz denim doesn't stretch a ton.

I'm an actual 34, and my 21 ouncers were tagged 34, actual 33 pre-soak. Post-soak, they shrunk to just over 31 but stretched out to a comfy 34 after a few days.

Well worth the few days discomfort :)

ok, I´m a 34 too but why do 2nd:s site say that size 34 will shrink to 86-88cm when washed wich is about 34 inch?

Mate, couldn't tell you why. All I can say is my own experience.

Maybe that's the size you'll get after shrink/stretch, which is about right then.

Those look pretty sick dick danger. Are they covered in dust or something, or is there simply not too much contrast? Or are they not even black?

Just out of curiousity - do ALL 710BK 19 oz have the hidden arcs? I got mine from 2nd along with a pair of 5000VX21's, and while the VX have stitched arcs, the BKs are hidden.

Just curious.

I'm 99% sure that all of them, indeed, have the hidden arcs.

They were really dirty, I just washed them for the first time today. In the right light they kinda look black.

I believe VX denim stretch more than regular denim. No?

that is typically true, but most of samurais 21oz denim doesnt shrink or stretch as much as some of its other weights. i think ed can back me up on this.

That's a pretty damn good fit. I wouldn't suggest you size up. They shrink a bit, but they won't be skin tight.

i think he has enough room there for shrinkage so theyll look proper after a wash :/
