    Pre- and post-soak measurements

    Samurai S5000BKB W32
    Waist 34" / 32"
    Front Rise 11.25" / 10.5"
    Back Rise 14.5" / 13.75"
    Inseam 38" / 35.75"
    Thighs 13" / 12.5"
    Knee 9.5-9.75" / 9"
    Leg Opening 9.25-9.5" / 9"

    I guess they will stretch back to 33" in the waist with some wear...

    Are the 710s the slimmest/skinniest cut Samurai make?

    They'll stretch back to at least raw size, if not more.

    My s710xx in size 31 stretched out to 34" in the waist =/


    xEnvy, I believe they are the slimmest cut that samurai produces. Pretty sure I read that somewhere in this thread :)

    the length will be more than enough. it will fit you but keep in mind that it is a WWII model so it is a wide straight cut. not modern slim or tapered.

    what other jeans du you usually wear?

    Tnx mate
    i usually wear evisu straight w32, d weight fits me just fine. Neva tried a raw denim before though, honestly 400 something on one pair is a bit much, so jus wanna b entirely sure that they fit before i make my move.
    tnx for d info mate, what does a WWII model mean!

    if this is your first journey in raw denim and I'm not sure if a 24oz denim is the right point to start. but as you wore Evisu before I can see why they appeal to you :p

    WWII means, they are inspired by a Levi's 501 and how they looked in the 1940. Also that's the reason why the arcs are painted and they have less rivets and other details a Levi's 501 in the 1940s had

    puh...that's not too easy to answer. first thing you have to decide how they should fit. you like regular straight you said? just measure your most favorite pair of jeans you own and you could start from there and look for similar fitting jeans. as denim weight. 14-15 oz is a good start

    no, not at all. you really have A LOT to learn :lol:
    it refers to the weight of the denim. e.g. : 15oz per square yard or 19oz per square yard.

    stick a bit around here and use the search option. or visit www.rawrdenim.com it is rather superficial but a good start for you as you really new to all this

    I actually just had to drop my 24oz'ers off at a tailor. I think it's related to the material being so stiff/thick and putting pressure on itself, because they're developing a hole around the middle of the shin (not exactly a high-stress area...). After the initial soak it looked like a single popped thread in the material. Now it was about 1cm across of frayed material without actually becoming a hole. Hopefully it'll be rewoven nicely... I don't think I'd go for another pair of that weight for this reason.

    The 19oz 512xx is turning my head though. I know the VX denim is supposed to stretch like hell, but I haven't heard much of the properties of the XX. Any insights here?
