they used to put crosses on them too. skull cut off the red tab it originally had and put a cross where it was because of the whole levi's lawsuit(in america).

Obviously there isn't going to be a cross or tab if it's from BiG. lol.


Skulls used to have the cross when you bought them from BiG. Not having the cross anymore is something new.

I have a pair but haven't had a chance to do fit pics. I'll try to do some if I get a chance. In the meantime, here is a fit pic of those jeans from the Self Edge website.


Sorry for bringing this back up, but I am wondering if you do? Cause I am possibly trading for a pair. Also, how did you size?

Sorry, still haven't had a chance to yet. I sized down one on mine, the waist measurement runs about an inch big on this model.

Alright, no problem I found some fit pics anyways. But, I am trading for a pair in 29 which is TTS for me. So if the trade goes through, I will just give them a long hot soak then.

Skulls are partially sanforized, so they won't shrink much, probably only a fraction of an inch in the waist and inseam at most. If you went TTS, you're probably going to have to be OK with wearing them a bit loose.

Yeah, I don't have much of a problem with that, I am sure theyll fit me fine though.

selfedge is clearing out their skulls stock. There's some 5000xx and 5507xx left for decent prices!

We've dropped Skull due to a combination of quality control and inconsistent product, it's a sad departure but it's honestly not worth our (and we'd hope our customers') time any more.
We've dropped the prices of remaining stock 30% to 50% off retail, all sales final:

Stretching and shrinking info is on the product page.
Sounds like you'd be a 28.

Just got my 5507's--I have more pros than cons, the 2 things I just don't like is how lightweight they feel, and that they have a zipper fly smh Other than that I love the way they fit!! They are skinny and nice, I am maybe going to give them a soak.

Here are fit pics:




I will try to take better pics tomorrow and with shoes on.

It looks like you got a different model of 5507 from most people. Most people, myself included, got the 6x6 5507, which has a button fly, a black leather patch, and heavier (14.5 oz.) denim.

Yours has a lighter color leather patch, and if the denim feels lighter and the jeans have a zip fly, you might have gotten the 7x6 model, which is a lighter jean. Where did you get yours from?

Well, I took detailed shots..im hoping they arent fake, cause im going to be real pissed otherwise... But the selvage is gold if that helps identifying the exact model? I think these also might be one wash but dude said he also never did any soaks, and the person is from malayasia.

I think they're legit. They're not the 6x6 model though, I think they are the 7x6 model of the 5507.

Nope, they are the 6x6. The person showed me a link on rakuten and they are older version of the 5507. They are also one wash.

Interesting. Older model would make sense, though, they don't look like my 6x6 5507s.

Yeah, they definitely are a bit older. But, I am confident they are real, I actually decided on selling them though. Don't need another pair to not get any wear on, especially since I most likely wont fit them in 2+ years.
