Sweat will only help those thigh and ass fades! So if i wear a sz 27 in diors and a 29 in 45rpm, what size 5000's should i get? Basically in the end after they are soaked and they stretch, i want them to measure 30 inches or so (.5 inches more is not a big deal)

My 5000's are from lot 9, tagged W26 but they were actually W28 since sizing was messed up on that lot. The waist has now stretched 2 inches to a W30.

If the new lot of 5000's fit true to size, then I recommend buying W28 if you want them to stretch out to W30.

so's florida..

Truth. Obviously you are more dedicated than I am (or haven't had to deal with a summer in them, yet, ha).

I really liked the USAs a lot in person. Taking them to get hemmed tomorrow. Will post some fit pics when I get the chance, but it may be a few days...forgot my camera.

i didnt know lot 9 was sized wrong and by being too big at that.

out of the wash/soak/partial hot dry I did. lots of shrinking, they are fully buttoned now, though. trying to decide if I want to get them hemmed. I kind of think they are slim enough for the stacking to look good. Plus I'd like to not lose the wicked roping I will get how they are now. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

For the record I'm between 5'11" and 6'0, so after shrinking the inseam is still a bit long, but not much (at least how they are being worn up around my natural waist right now)

Well not "sized wrong", but they were tagged 2 waist sizes smaller than what they actually were (at least my pair).

the seat looks a lil too loose, but i mean thats me, if you like your fit and you like it loose then you should be very happy.

i want to buy from big but is there any way i can get it with tabs? and arcs?

You can get the Jin's (S0110XJ, S0210XJ), but they were never a part of the Levi's lawsuit.

I like the fit, but yeah, they do look baggier than I would expect for going true to size in lot 10. Look nice though.

too true dino.

i find my BKs get a little itchy when im hot and sweaty, but other than that they arent too bad at all. have you washed them?

not wash, but hot soaked them twice. im used to panzy dior denims and the 19oz or whatever they are is a bit intense. im riding it out though.

I am surprised. I have been wearing my 5000bks for a month everyday. Comfortable as can be and have never itched. I am in the cold country though, so maybe that's what I have to look forward to when it warms up...

hot soak everything except for the waist. or put a hanger in the waist and make sure you try them on when they are still damp.

With Tweedles go-ahead, a new Samurai thread has been started:

http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk/showthread.php?t=48318

I assume this thread will be locked in due time, as it was with the APC thread. I guess you can keep posting in here until that happens.

It would be great if we could come up with a sizing guide (continuing what was happening in the model line-up thread). I'm still unclear on what happened with the USA's. I stayed true-to-size and it worked out great (sz 30), but I thinkt he larger sizes in the 2nd lot were sized differently. What's the concensus on that one? Experiences please.

Size up dude, for definite, unless of course you like wearing really tight denim. Theyll stretch out a little (can you clarify the model please) with wear.

Yeah a sized down pair of USA's (size 31) is really slim. Sort of like those 710's in the marble mirrors posted up above...raw. The thighs were quite slim...and it gave me the impression of sizing down 2 with 5000vx's (the cut the USA's are supposedly mirroring...cept a size smaller).

I would say true to size for a nice slim straight leg fit...size down 1 for a slim fit.

Samurai has a sizing chart for all the models on their website, and most places that sell them show the same chart.

Why don't people use these?? I've never asked a sizing question...

The charts on their website are pre-wash, so there are a few underlying factors that come into place, like shrinkage and stretching, etc. after they're soaked/washed. Its the most common question asked in this thread, so having a general overview of sizing up/down would be a helpful guide for someone new to Samurai.
