Did it shrink as much as the first 2 soaks? And did the boiling damage the patch?

nope. shrunk a little bit. looks slimmer knee down after 3rd soak. patch is fine, i didnt pour boiling water on them and i kinda left the waist from being submerged in the water.

1st soak - didnt even try it on, too much starch on them.
2nd soak - most shrinkage + no more starch
3rd soak - slimmer from knee down.

It's really easy actually. Just measure your waist and go true to size. And if you don't know how to measure your waist.. then here you go buddy!:

I don't know how to size on 710's, but you get them by figuring how much they will shrink, then stretch. I've seen people SDO, and go TTS... but I don't wanna recommend anything though since I don't own 710's.

BASED ON THE SIZING OF OTHERS
go tts if you are average build, down 1 if you have skinnier legs
some ppl have sized up to achieve a baggier fit, but still with a decent sized leg opening

Maybe. But they could also be lot 14. The 13 and 14 are identical with black arcs and red tab.

most likely Lot.14 as Lot.13 was already sold out at Samurai. The newest restock from Lot.14 was produced in February.

you could always ask 2nd to verify the Lot#

They still got some #13 left I think, because I got one. This was about two weeks ago. But most likely you'll get #14

Samurai's cuts mostly run looser than Flat Heads, and I'm not sure that anything they have is as slim as a BSP, except for maybe the S003JP. But the S003JP is straight, not tapered like the BSP is. Samurai denim tends to be slubbier than Flat Head's.

From my experience, about 1-2" in the waist for a hot soak, and probably a fraction of an inch for a cold soak. They'll stretch back out pretty easily, though.

QFT. I didn't get 2" but about an inch or down to tagged size (29). I threw mine in the wash yesterday for about ~50 minutes with warm/cold setting and they shrunk back to tagged size but stretched out almost as soon as I put them back on.


Alright, I gave mine a wash, and couldn't help it... I was planning on washing every 2 months, but couldn't wait so I jumped a bit early. No pre-wash pics.

They are the S500JX-LR.. About a good month and a half if not more wear.



No combs for some reason... Everyone else in the contest on SuFu, and MyNudies also do not have any combs. Maybe since we don't wear them hard enough, or it could be because of the different weaves..

The atari fade (correct term? ), or vertical fading on these is insane! I love the way it looks.
