    It's perfect - doesn't hinder me in any way, not too tight anywhere; bit wrinkly (cause of the one wash I was told), but that'll disappear with wear...

    I'll be wearing my altered 634S'es for 5-6 months after temps go down (soon), but these will be perfect for spring/ summer 2k12...

    Good fit. I am sure you will enjoy wearing them like I do.

    I got my XX-011s today. They look fantastic - the only problem is that I bought a size too small, these things are tighter than I expected in the waist and thigh. I should've gotten 31 instead of 30. I'll send them back for an exchange; the new pair should be a perfect fit.

    Damn !

    Can you close top button?

    You said it's a one wash, maybe it would stretch?

    Yeah, I can get the top button closed but they're too tight. They're much lower rise than my Grim Tims and according to the measurements (on BiG for the XX-011s, and Context for the Grim Tims), they shouldn't be. The main thing though is the thighs, I don't know how much if any they'll stretch out. The calves and lower leg are fine, though.

    They look great, I'm just worried about the rise and thighs, mostly. I'll post some pics when I get home.

    Okay, so I packed them up and sent them back to PBJ to exchange for a size 31.

    The main thing that threw me off about these jeans was just how low the back rise was. I compared them to my size 29 Grim Tims and holy crap, the PBJs were an inch longer in the back. To get them up to the same height that I usually wear my jeans (which is not super high), I obviously need more room in the thighs. Are Tims really long in the back compared to most jeans, or are PBJs just unusually short?

    Since I'm such a skinny guy, I never imagined the thighs would be an issue for me. Usually stuff is too loose somewhere.

    We'll see how the 31 will be, but imo the 30 would have stretched: It's just normal for new jeans to feel unconfortable at first.
    Where are the pics? :p

    Apparently the XX-007 has a really low rise as well... I'm glad the 009 doesn't suffer from this, cause that would render them useless to me...

    Weird thing is that the XX-013 is supposed to be the lower-rise one, so I would've though the 11 was just right. Probably because of the small thighs, which kept me from pulling them up more. In a size 31 they're a little looser in the leg and with slightly more rise, but that will probably make all the difference, especially after they stretch.

    Since I packed them up and sent them off quickly after I got home from work yesterday, I didn't have time for pics. I'll take photos of the new ones after I've worn them for a few days and they've stretched.

    I really like how the gray weft on these jeans look, and I'm not exactly sure how a "left-handed weave" is supposed to look, feel, or age different from regular jeans, but I'm left-handed so it automatically appeals to me.

    I got the new pair of XX-011s and they fit perfectly! I'll see about taking some pics soon.

    PBJ xx-005 tts sz 29.

    Just received them today from a trade with decades777 (excellent trader). Always wanted a pair of PBJ's never thought of owning these though always thought of owning a pair of deep indigos those will be next though.

    Anyways here is the fit sorry for the horrible expression, I have tons of homework, PSATs, SATs, and im sick but w/e.
    I'll get a proper WAYWT up soon.

    The denim is great on these! I initially bought these thinking they were going to be more of a full cut but when I got them and realized they are actually slim that made me a bit more happy. These also remind me of a lightweight slubbier version of my S500JX-LRs. Actually they almost look like the same denim.

    I will get much better pictures up in a couple of days when I don't have to use flash.

    They look good! I'm thinking of getting some XX-005s since the Flat Head F310s were too short, but maybe I should just focus on wearing the PBJs I already got instead.

    Hey, you can never own too many pairs of jeans ;-)! But the xx-005s are a pretty nice cut though, the photo I posted though doesn't do the fit justice haha.

    ^ Nice fit. The stacks looks good from the front.

    Nice!
    How old is that pair?

    And to Cold Summer, you do know you should focus :p
    Yeah yeah easier said than done.
    Ah, I'd like a xx-011 too, and a FH, but the right thing to do would be to wait at least 2 years :(

    the fit is spot on. You're the kind of guy who can wear this, I would kill my fertility. And the denim is really nice and crispy, ain't it?

    Thanks! IMO They are perfect in the front... the back... not so much.

    Honestly I didn't ask. I really didn't even care, just wanted my Edwins gone since they didn't fit at all. My guess is maybe 2 months at most 4?.. If it is 4 months though I might as well give these up cause there is minimal fading.

    Hahahaha thanks flo! Honestly I might be able to but I just wish my inseam was maybe 2" longer? Then I wouldn't have to worry about MAD stacks bro. As for the denim no, it isn't crispy still.. its actually very comfortable and soft, but nice it is.


    Here is better pictures. If anyone wants detailed pictures i'll put them up but I don't think it really matters.

    The back is a bit sloppy but it'll settle over time.
