All - do you think it is possible to remove a chest pocket from a one-wash Samurai chambray shirt without living a trace? Talking specifically about removing the left pocket (and button) on this:

I would guess that after removing the pocket fabric patch you will have a spot in a different shade - especially, considering the shirt is already washed.

also, there are a couple of bartacks - those will be hard to remove and often leave holes.

Yea i'm also not completely happy with the 710 fit. I'm gonna give mine a machine wash end of Feb and see if i change my mind, but most likely I will be looking for new heavyweight black jeans with a better fit for me

If IH is an Option - the 777 will be released as SBG Version in a collab soonish, as far as I know.

Those look great 1fookntitefd, and they've stayed amazingly dark for S710s with that much wear (though I realize they haven't been worn daily for those two years.)

Thanks guys. The jeans are actually a lot lighter in person and a little more contrasty in person (it looks darker in the pictures because of lighting and because I'm using my iphone)...

@1fookntitefd, @Niro - what do you guys not like about the fit of the 710's?

^ I think that they were too baggy for me especially for a "slim tapered" jean. But then again, I think I simply sized wrong. I usually wear a tag size 36 for all of my raw denim (IH, strike gold ,etc...) so I bought a pair of size 36 for my 710xx. I did not bother paying attention to pre-soak measurements since this was one of my first pairs of raw denim so I am chalking it up to a beginner error and have since learned my lesson. In retrospect I could have gotten away with a size 35 or even a 34 and it may have fit better. As it is, I ended up getting my pair tapered at railcar...

My BKB and DMO 710s were size 35 and 36 opposed to 34 in the 710 XX. I gained some weight but also the waists ran smaller on the last releases. Unfortunaately thii ruined the slim silhouette - both pairs fit like a regular fit. Even though the 710 never was considered super slim I feel like that might be the problem here. Maybe the 711 would work bettere.

^ yes the next pair of samurai I buy will be the 711x....maybe by the time I'm ready they will provide it with the 19ox denim.

I have had 2 pairs of 710's and both i have tapered. The actual hem width was fine on both pairs but there always seemed to be too much excess on the actual shin area.

It's supposed to be tapered but there's just so much extra material in lower leg. I did give the legs an extra hot soak, but didn't really shrink it that much further.

i wear it in winter with thick shirts and bulky jacket, so the look fits ok, but just doesn't feel right for me.

I love my 710 but agree with you guys, there is a sort of bagginess (although they are not "baggy" in the traditional sense) that sits somewhere between slim and regular which surprised me.

My memory from looking at Samurai fits was that the 711 was tighter through the top block as well as tapering more below the knee compared to the 710. Is that correct? I also sized up in the 710 compared to my normal fit, and have definitely found them feeling closer to a classic straight-leg fit than I typically wear.

For the other guys looking at black jeans that might work like the Samurai 710 but with a bit more taper below the knee (without going to the super-tight ankle that's become more fashionable nowadays), it might be worth taking a look at some of the double-black options that Momotaro / Japan Blue have been putting out. Their natural tapered fit is pretty good if you go TTS at having a similar top block to the 710 with a slightly cleaner look from the knee down. Also the Charles Atlas fit from Left Field is available in the 18oz Collect Mills double-black if you want something heavier. Nothing that I've seen can really match the faster fading or texture of Samurai's black denim though.

^ if I remember correctly, the 711 is a slim straight fit with no taper. Having said that, it still has a slimmer profile than the 710 assuming you are getting the same size.

Hey guys I have been following this thread for a while now and I was wondering (and sorry in advance) if y'all could help me out? I am looking at getting a pair of Samurais (Samurai Jeans S711VX Zero 17oz Tight Straight) and I don't want to mess it up on account of the price point. I was thinking about getting a 33/34 but I am not sure about how it stretches out after wash. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

PS I wear a size 34 in almost all Levi's 511's!

OK so after measuring this is what I got

 

Waist = 17 / 34

Front rise = 10.25

Back rise = 14.5

Thigh = 11.5

Knee = 8.25

Leg opening = 7.5

Inseam = 32

 

The above measurements are from rigid dragon 511's in the tag size of 34X32 thanks again I really appreciate it

If I were you I would take size 34. But keep in mind that the leg opning of the 711 will be a tad bigger than your Levi's 511 and especially after you have hememd the 711 (if you are doing this though)

Oh that's perfect! :D thank you so much! I am totally OK with a wider leg opening, especially when I wear boots I could stand to gain a some extra room!
