Flatheads fade very very well. Almost everyone's looks good, except for lucky.

i just got some 710xx in the mail today and i got a couple questions

1.) When should I soak or wash? Better to pre-soak?
2.) How can I avoid bleeding on shoes?


Pre-soak. Cuff to avoid bleeding on shoes.

does premature soaking fux with the contrast of the fades?


No, just soak if you feel like it needs a soak.

i cant think of another denim that fades better than samurais.


Yeah. Flat Heads and Skulls fade nicely too.

Lollll.

I've been wearing my skulls for a bout a week and already seeing a little whisker, calf, and butt fades.

RIP my 710.(they're retired)

I love the way Samurais look compared to other denim brands. Well I like that grainy look compared to the shiny jeans.

Is it possible for tagged size 32 Sams 710's to measure like a 29? Nigg on sufu is selling a pair and says they're like a 29.

Just ask him to take measured photos, if its 14.5 inches across then its a size 29.

He says it's 15.5.
Meaning 31 inches measured. Being a 29? That's what it says on BiG.

Sorry but I don't have any exp with Samurai denim. I'm 5'7, 130 pounds. True waist is measured too a 29. Would this pair fit me well?

Thats tagged on BIG.

If he hasn't soaked or washed, and the denim runs 31" measured then it'll still run a bit large (about 30) even after a soak, since your a size 29. If he soaked/washed already then don't get it, it'll run 2 sizes to big and won't have much more room to shrink, maybe .5.

I kept saying I would post an update, but I kept procrastinating. My gf left for college and I'm trying to keep my mind off of the fact that she left, so here's the update.

Samurai S710xx2nd 15oz, one pre-soak, one soak, approximately 3 months of wear.

mine is 17 oz, because i bought from BiG.

2nd's 710s are 19 oz because they have arcs and tabs.

the 2 arcs weigh 1 oz, and the red tab weighs 1 oz

so 2 arcs + red tab = 2 oz

and 2nd's 710s are 19 oz(17oz + 2 oz)

I bought mine from BiG and they only weigh 17 oz.

Also traffic is bad when it comes to the inter, sigh m whats the deal wif airplane food?

Ok so each arc is .5 oz.

And they have 2 arcs so .5z + .5oz is 1 oz

that means that 2 arcs is 1 oz, if u do the mathetmatics son?

also the tab is red, red is heavier so it is 1 oz.

so all and all you have .5oz arc + .5oz arc + 1 oz + 17ozdenim = 19 oz

yeah they streched out everywhere really and pretty quick. Hopefully these dont stretch that much


That sucks, same thing for me. Kinda makes me not want to wear my zero denim anymore. I should have enough saved up for the Black Knights hopefully and start a new pair of blacks =o

Nah they weren't washed/soaked already. So if I got them they wouldn't really be true to size then? It'd be like sizing up?
