really depends on the fit you are going for. I would say no.

to anyone looking for sams. i cant recommend 2nd enoulgh. after 40oz's great looking fit pics of the 526XXII i went and bought myself a pair (have to wait for soak and fit pics until i finish off my current IH 634s, which may take a very long time), and i cant say enoulgh good things about this store. spent a bit on some shirts and jean and a new wallet and they sent out a free FH sweat shirt with the order (with a nice letter in japanese of course).

No doubt. The easiest ordering experience I have had with Japanese shops. Cheaper than buying in the states, and you get arcs and tabs.

Yes, they are 5000vxs. I bought them from 2nd. Ordered using Google translator. Came out to $320 shipped. Got here (Canada) in under a week. I can't be any more pleased. Soaked them last night and they are hanging to dry. Will get some soak pics up soon.

how much cheaper are we talking going through 2nd vs. BIG after shipping? there's definitely the desire to keep our "local" stores alive and well, but keeping your wallet alive ain't a crime either.

Its probably pretty close in price tbh. I just wanted the tab and arcs.

I dig. I was lucky enough to get my sams before all the BS with Levi's. I like to pretend like I could get another pair and not care about the arcs/tab, but I'm pretty sure I'd be lying to myself. It's the details that really make Samurai stand out from all the other companies in the first place.

i'll get it up in the next few days when i get back home with some pre-soak fit pics. nothing special really, just a plain off white crewneck sweatshirt.

710s owners.

From what I understand they fit true to size, but I like to wear my jeans without belt, should I size down 1 or stay true to size?

Thanks, I know those fit questions are kind of boring.

I didn't get a sweater but I ordered 3 pairs of S710xx's and a FlatHead chambray and I placed the order at like 2 AM Saturday morning and they arrived Tuesday. That's fucking amazing.

And I got 3 mousepads, a fan, a tote bag, a few stickers and a freaking 2nd Air Freshner.

I thought 2nd didn't ship FH stuff. Weird.

Are you planning on trying on all 3 and then selling off the 2 that don't fit, or were you buying for friends? CURIOUS.

They feel rough right now.. waiting for them to retain the same feel/fit from before the soak.

Friends, one for someone in Texas and another for someone in Canada so he didn't get raped by customs.

And yeah they shipped me my Chambray no problems. I think the mousepads were like one for each pair or something :dunno:

Then I realized I didn't want to put $920 worth of clothes on the ground, so I went into my room.

My completely unnecessary Flathead Chambray (navy)
