Skull Jeans by An Alchemist

Recommended Posts

Most of the problems people have with fit come from asking the question, "Should I buy my jeans one size too small or four?" Considering that people might not be shrinking their jeans completely or that they might just suck at using a tape measure I'm not convinced that there's a problem with BIG's measurements. My jeans matched perfectly for what it's worth.

i have a pair of 5010 6x6's in size 32 for sale if anyone is interested.

they have only been soaked and worn inside a couple of times, before i decided they were just too slim for my liking. they are basically new except for the soak.

asking $200 + $5 for shipping.

I am tempted as my 31s are pretty brutal right now and I am not wearing them until I decide whether I need to size up.

My question is: If Skulls are sanforised why do so many people soak them?

Because they're pretty darn uncomfortable unsoaked. At least I feel they are worse in that respect than virtually any other jeans.

Do you think that they will stretch more than 2 inches over several months?

i dont know which ones you have, or how long you have worn them,or soaked them or washed them?.....but they will stretch a good 2/ 2.5 inches at a push if their under alot of strain at the waist. if they hav'nt been soaked or washed this could be quite brutal / painfull though. if they have been washed, their gonna shrink, but stretch back alot easier, and be more comfy.

shurley you know if you need a bigger size....theres heaps of info on this site about it, its finding it:)...hope this helps?:o

So are you saying that the denim of these Skulls stretch almost as much as APC? My APCs stretched 3 inches over several months. I didn't think Skulls were like that. But if they are then my 31s should be fine albeit brutal at the moment.

So for those of you who soak your Skulls do you size up to account for shrinkage or just wear them damp?

3 Months. Worn everyday.

No just get them true to size. They are sanforized so soaking doesn't shrink them that much.

Fashunhor = I went true to size. 28.

Fallen Angles = Actually they shrink a bit even though they are sanforized. Not a lot, but a significant amount compared to all the other sanforized denims.
