Just bought some XX-005s true to size(31) I still have tiny space and it's comfortable on me. How should I soak them? Hot or cold?


If you don't want the overall fit to change, you'll have to soak them cold and keep all of their washes cold. If you feel that you have room for shrinkage, then go ahead and soak them hot.

You should probably go with either a 28 or a 29, depending on how tight you want them to fit. personally, I would probably go with the 29 in your situation.

It is unsanforized, so it will shrink when you soak it unless you buy the one-wash. But I looked at the sizing charts again, and you are right, the 28 will probably be better.

i have a question for you guys with pbj 005/007. does the leg opening really bother you guys? because i've owned APC NS and Samurai 710, and am used to a tapered leg opening, i am worried about how the untapered leg opening will feel.

I don't mind it at all. I had new cures before, and going into 005 was fine. I don't have any leg flare at all, but I did wear mine when they were slightly damp and I got all the stacking right.

Depending on what size you are, if you are talking about going from a 7" leg opening to an 8" leg opening, you will definitely notice a difference. It will take some getting used to at first, but when I went from slim fit jeans to loose fit, it was odd at first but I like the fit better. The one thing is that the wider the leg opening is the more messy the stacks tend to be.

The PBJ cut closest to the APC PS is probably the XX-005. The XX-007 and XX-010 have the same cut as well.

i think that the Pure Blue Japan XX-013 are closer to the apc ps, wider thighs and tight taper

I'm bout to cop the 005 since that's pretty much the only ones I can afford. These are gonna be my first raw denim so can you guys tell me what to expect? I've read that the 005's are slim with a bigger leg opening and that I have to soak them in hot water to shrink or cold water to have them stay the same for an hour. Anything else I should know?

If I buy them of BiG can I send them back to get them tapered? Or do I have to find my own tailor

As far as I know, BiG will hem but not taper jeans, so you'll have to find someone on your own. If there is no one local to you that can do this, try Denim Doctors at the Hollywood Trading Company. They do a great job, and they accept mail-ins.

Plenty of PBJs come raw. I think more of their models are available raw than one-washed.
