They look good on you jeffy, but I'm sorry to say that the 0500 you ordered will probably be two inches smaller.

0500 worked out exactly the same as the blacks..

Hey, so this question was pressing enough for me to finally register a supertalk ID. I just got a pair of Neighborhood rigids (overpriced yes, but the narrow fit is no less awesome) and I'm now resolved to get a pair of japanese repro-style jeans. I want a mid-low rise, slim straight leg style. I'm deciding between PBJ xx-005 and the SD-103/203 (203 because I think I prefer the idea of a sanforized denim). Since I also know that Sammies are so popular in this forum, I wondered:

1. What the Samurai equivalent might be? I read previously the S0505 but I hoped they're might be a similarly low-rise style without the zipper fly.

2. What the difference was between the samurai/zero/jin geisha models was? I assume the Geisha is a 'ladies'" jean, but the others

Also, has anyone found a rakuten storefront that ships PBJ's to the US?

thanks so much!

i think the pure blue 005 is much slimmer than the SDA's. SDA 103 is fairly slim, but not pure blue thin. why not go through BIG to get a return policy on SDA, PBJ, Samurai?

The PBJ xx-005 does look significantly slimmer, which is why I'm leaning toward that choice, however, I prefer the back pocket design of the Samurai's, so I was hoping to discern which was their slimmest fitting, straight-leg, lower rise style.

What will the inseams shrink to? I imagine they would end up around 33inches after a couple of washes.

what's the cut on the BK's?

they appear to be boot to me, but maybe that's just an illusion

The BK cut is the same as the 5000VX, straight leg.

Hey everyone. I was interested in getting the S510XX19ozll after I saw the pair on the BIG homepage. I was just wondering how much does the inseam shrink after multiple washes? I wear a 30L regularly. What length would be good to have them hemmed to? Also, I am currently breaking in a pair of nudie regular ralf dry selvage jeans, and I like the fit on those. What pair of Samurai's would have a fit that is similar to the nudie rr ds?

Hey guys I'm looking to get a really nice pair of Japanese denim, and I'm leaning toward some Samurais. Currently I have a pair of 36 APC rescues that are waaay too big and a pair of 36 Nudie SS that fit nicely. I was looking for a fit between these two jeans. I have narrowed it down to Sammurai S5000VX, S0500XXLE, and PBJ XX-003. What would you guys recommend, and also, what is the main difference between the

S5000 and S0500 other than the denim weight?

The s0500 has a higher rise than the s5000 and is also slightly slimmer throughout. The so500 also tapers slightly in the leg where the s5000 is completely straight.

On a side note Ive been interested in apc rescues for a while but the biggest size they make is 36 (im big). Could you do me a favor and measure the waist so I can tell how much they can stretch to? Thanks :)

What is the width of the thighs for the s0500 like? Is it similar to APC new standards? Or are they looser?

I normally wear a 32 and im thinking of going 2 sizes down due to my skinny legs. But im worried that i won't be able to button them up. Has anyone experience any stretching in the waist?

It's quite a bit looser. Samurais are more like a classic cut also...

'Quite a bit looser' as in something similar to canes 47?

Don't know about this....

My S5000VX's fit very similar to my new standards only without the tapered leg. My Samurai's are definately not a classic fit, but slim without the anti-fit ass. I would say Sugarcanes are more classic cut, not samurai.

Check out how they fit in the "how do jeans fit" thread...
