    it surely will take 2-3 weeks till it's comfy....or did you want to know how long it takes till you see fading?:confused:

    I think I'm not carebear enough ;-)

    btw, I wouldn't go down to a 28 without trying or considering the 29...
    maybe go try on the 28 if it's REAL tight in the waist, get the 29

    No your right by your first answer i just wanted to know how long it will take before its comfy. Ive now found out by looking at cultizm.com that the jeans i tried on were the Selvage. IMO the Selvage looks a better fit and looks a nicer colour Denim too. Maybe i should send the AJDH back when i receive them and go buy the selvage. I didn't get the opportunity to try on a 28 at the shop i bet they don't even stock it. The website i bought the AJDH from has a 28 although i will not be able to try it on....

    ok...just looked at cultizm.com and the AJDH seems to be very blue. maybe the lighting was different by taking this picture (check the background at the 2 pics...it's much lighter at AJDH as it is at the AJDS)..my AJDH und my SSDS have nearly the same color so will be the AJDH compared to the AJDS. (propably) :lol:

    it's always tricky to order online

    Yeah i notice the backdrop lighting now you mention it well spotted! Well at 100.00 i hardly think the shop was selling AJDH it must have been AJDS i tried on a pair of Slim Jim Dry Denims and they were priced at 70.00.

    When i receive my AJDH i will make my judgement as what to keep but as it stands im leaning towards the Selvage!

    If I do decide to keep the AJDH by how much will they stretch in a size 30 x 32? I want to maintain that Context look so judging by your posts I best try a 28 if they have it otherwise im stuck with a 30

    for 100 pounds it was surely the AJDS or the shop-owner is a criminal ;-)

    it's hard to say how much it will stretch..but in general it will just stretch so much as it have to. when there is no stress at the waist because it's loose enough it won't stretch furterh. and remember BOF's post..wearing a belt will reduce stretching.
    and don't forget the alternative..you could buy a 29.

    so..now say "good night" to me ;-) hope you know now what to do and if not..there enough guys around here who do! :-D

    Well i just received my AJDH ill post some pictures up later today on how they fit and you guys can comment :). Im happy with them although they are a slightly lighter shade of blue as opposed to the AJDS the AJDH didnt seem as stiff as the AJDS will this mean they will lose their shape quicker?

    How they fit on me now is how id like them to stay do you think they will stay that way or change due to stretching? Anyway ill post some pictures up later.....

    they will surely stretch out a bit and the fit will change a bit. maybe they will go a little bit lower on your waist. i dunno what do you mean exactly with losing their shape :confused:

    Well at the moment theres about an inch loose in the waist so hoping that wont get baggier otherwise they will drop. Im not really a fan of wearing belts but will be willing to wear a belt at first to avoid stretching in the waist. And the overall fit is a really nice slim straight leg and how they fit me now is how i want them to stay I.E Tight in the waist and a Narrow Slim leg. So what i mean is will they lose their shape because and get baggier otherwise they will become like my Levi 501's. If getting a size down or two avoids losing their shape then id rather do that.

    if you like sagging your jeans then i think the size will be ok. otherwise go down one size. but it's easier to give you some advice when you post some fit-pics.

    then you'll get probably more opinions from other members and i believe that would be better. don't rely just on my opinion ;-)

    AJDH (Heavy dye DOES make them look almost black out of the box) They lighten up after the first three months, and the contrast in the fades look awesome :)

    stretch on gray coated

    Anyone know what the stretch is like on Average Joe Gray Coated? (Cultizm has em)

    I don't really have experience with coated denim, or denim with 2% Elastane, so I was looking for some expert opinions ;).

    I'm about 99% sure there aren't any worn in pics up aside from the AJDH's, maybe some dry selvedge ones too, but I don't think so.
