question about dry denim

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
I may want to try dry denim brands when i get some more money and i have questions about sizing. I read that these shrink when washed and will stretch 1 to 1.75 inches in the waist.

I wear 30 waist in diesel and I cannot button up 29 waist. If I wear 30 in diesel, what waist should i get for brands like nudie, skull, flathead, dior, imperials etc? Im guessing that i need to go a size smaller but would I be able to button up? My waist is like 33 inches so I can only manage to button waist 30 in diesels.

EDIT: Also what brands should i consider and which ones to avoid? I hear good things about flathead and skull.

Sizing depends a lot on the brand and cut.

You might have to decide which brand you want first then we can look at the cuts.

im looking at this one. SE05BSP - Slim Tapered - $315.00 : Self Edge : Japanese Selvedge Denim

what size would i get? I can only wear waist 30 in diesel so im not sure about this one. It says that it is 2 sizes smaller than other flatheads

My best guess would be to measure yourself and compare with the charts, really. They are pretty accurate in most cases.

i am 33 inches in the waist when i measure myself. So if the jeans are 16 across aligned, i won't be able to button up. Has to be like 16.25 or 16.5 My 30 waist diesels are 16.5 across on average.

so does this mean a waist 30 in this flathead is really 15 across?

if you have sizing questions, and a lot of them it seems... call self-edge and talk to kiya. guy is cool and more than happy to help you figure out what you need... especially if youre looking to buy from him.

ya sizing/stretching depends alot on the brand (as brands use different denim)

since youre a new person u should go for sanfornized raw denim...so u dont have to play the "buy raw jeans...hot soak em...and they dont fit as good as people told u they would.. and u cant return and u have to sell em used for $80.00 less then u paid for em..game"

after u get exp..then u can buy unsanfornized (shrink to fit) jeans..like flat head, samurai,etc


go to sufu and read all the topics on the various raw/dry companies...read every post and usually by the end of the topic u will know what cut and what size to get

i guess i will give the guy a call. Im basically looking for a tight fit with a tapered look that will stack nicely like thanaz. So any premium raw denim that fits like this would be great.

Look into Somet, Skull 5010 6X6 and the new slim Flathead then. Tapering PBJ 005/007/010 (purple selvage is awesome) works too. The super long in-seam which come with all those models should provide you enough stacking. I was in your shoe about a month ago.

don't measure yourself, measure your jeans and compare them to the ones you are looking at.

yeah the diesels that i can wear are 16.5 across aligned. So this means i get a 33 or 32 for flathead? does Kiya answer these questions by email?
post #12 of 72
yes he does. but call him anyways.

Are you suppose to hem a flathead? I heard that these are like 39L long.

dont hem them, mine came w/ a 36in inseam, & they are almost too short for me after a wash. They may have fixed this problem w/ the 1001 however

So i emailed Kiya and told him that my waist is 33 and he recommened that i get a 34 for the BSP. I guess these run true to size. But what if I got the 33 and put a hanger in the waist and soak it? Will that work? I want these to be tight as possible.

nah, size up 1, they'll still be slim post-soak trust me

I just ordered the BSP in waist 34. Can't wait for it to get here. Hope this raw denim thing works out for me. Should I use boiling water to soak it? That might take ages to fill up the bath tub with boiling water.

I just got my BSB and the guy was right about my size. I definitely would not be able to button up in a size 33. Problem is that the jeans seem baggy as hell and this is suppose to be a slim fit. They are in the tub now, and i used the hottest water from the tap. There is not too much extra room in the waist though. This denim is stiff and feels like cardboard.

These better shrink a ton or i just made a $310 paper weight.

They shrinked nicely. Will post some pics. Im soaking them again to get the extra shrinkage. Wish these were a lower rise though.

Nice... soaking makes a dramatic difference in the size of FH. I have a feeling they will fit nicely for ya

These are post soak pics. I wish there was not so much bulging near the crotch and back thigh area. But other then that, these are comfortable slim jeans.
