    I'm 5'9" as well and I just washed my 34s and they shrunk perfectly. Probably about 1 1/2 inches. I had to cuff them before or just let them stack. Both looked good though so I would say go 34.

    Exactly how "green" is the graycast. I really am looking for a pretty blue jean so I would assume that the SJDJ is the best option for me correct?

    I am kind of leaning towards the 30x32 because I do not want the jean to be long to the point where I have to cuff them and they will just restrech after that wash any way correct? The only problem is I don't want to buy the 32 and have it look like a girl jean and be straight through with no stacking occuring. A 32x30 has seemed to fit me well length wise in both levis and J.Crew slim jeans so wouldn't the 30x32 be the better option as far as length goes? Also take into account I do not like to wear my jeans at the waist. Gah I need to stop thinking so much and buy a damn pair of jeans.:roll:

    Check out the photos to see how green they are. But after your first wash they'll become blue.

    Buy the 34 length. They'll be stiff when new and stacking will be easy so you won't have to cuff them.

    Is buying the Slim Jim Comfort(stretch) a better idea than the regular Dry Japan. Reason I am asking is because of all the crotch ripping problems I am seeing I certainly don't want that occurring in $140 jeans.

    EDIT: I just measured my inseam and realized it is around 30 or so so would the 32 be best over the 34?

    i prefer the stretch to the dry japans. i've owned both. the dry japans stretched out like crazy. the stretch ones not so much. i'm 6' tall and sag my jeans a bit and wear a 32" inseam. if you're shorter than me you should be fine.

    Ok so i managed to sell this sjdj
    http://mynudies.com/gallery/files/5/5/9/1/2.jpg

    http://mynudies.com/gallery/files/5/5/9/1/1.jpg

    Which i think were to loose for me. They were 30x32 and i'm going for a slimmer look
    I'm planning on ordering a pair on 28x32 in either dry black or greycast, not sure yet.

    So the sizing sound right?

    When i last measured this jeans after a week they were 16" in the waits. When they first arrived they measured 15" which felt about right, no need to use a belt but not too tight either.

    Also not sure if i should post this on the thin fin forums, but i'm also planning on getting a pair of fins dry comfort, i received advice that i should get them on 29 waist, but i read on this forums that the top part was the same as slim jim. So should i go 29x32 or 28x32 on thin fin dry comfort?

    Thanks!

    So should I not be sizing down a size on the waist like was recommended with the SJDJ? For reference my waist is a 32 and I was planning on buying a 30(actually 31 waist)

    I'd still size down. They'll still stretch just not as much. I sized down one for my Dry Organics and they're almost too big now.

    Dry Comfort

    So I finally got my jean size sorted out and am ready to order. However after reading through some threads it seems like crotch ripping on the Dry Japan is an epidemic and if I am going to be paying $140 for jeans I am not letting that happen.

    However I heard that they released the dry comfort(on kitchener) as a means of fixing this problem and reducing the huge amount of stretch that occurs on the Dry Japan. I couldn't really find much info about this Dry Comfort model so I thought I would make a thread.

    Is this is a better option than the DJ if I am looking for long lasting jeans. Is there anything bad about these I should know before purchasing. How do they feel?

    they're very soft and not very stiff at all. after a week or so of wearing there's barely any indication of honeycombs setting in. i think these will be very hard to fade and get looking like a normal pair of dry blue nudies.

    Ugh. Yeah, don't even worry about the crotch rip. Just reinforce, of something. You don't want to mess around with the fade lines. They're they best part.

    But then, I'm big, big, big into rigid.. And not so much into comfort anyway.

    So consensus is don't by the stretch? Not trying to be rude by my post got moved, what exactly qualifies as a thread here without being put in the Misc?

    Everything I have read about the stretch seems good. More comfort, way less stretching, and way less chance of crotch and back pocket ripping(i saw that picture of yours rolaids) which is my main concern. What are the negatives of the comfort.

    Thanks for the help I really need it because I am making a purchase today.:-D

    i said elsewhere on this forum that the negatives of the comforts are that they're very soft and not stiff at all. after a week or so of casual wear i have barely any creasing setting in on the jeans. i'll take some pics later.
