First Dry Denim Attempt ... Samurai s710BK II

After consulting with the nice people on myNudies and Superfuture, I decided to pass on Nudies and go straight to Japanese denim.

If you don't love the fit, return them. Raw is meant to be worn day in and day out for a long time. Don't buy a bad fit to save money.

QFT. Its better to spend couple hundred more on the perfect pair you will love for years or at least many many months to come than to nickle and dime on a pair you hate.

I actually did that. I was waiting until I was sure I had the jeans I was going to stick with before updating the thread. It looks like I'm going to be starting with the Samurai s710BK II and the Flat Head 3009. The Samurai is set - I'm doing the first soak today most likely. It's still possible I might change the Flat Head, but I'm leaning towards keeping it.

Original Post updated with Pre-Soak fit pics of the Samurai and Flat Head jeans. Samurai getting soaked now. Flat heads possibly tomorrow if I decide to keep them.

Nudies were sent to eBay if anyone is interested. They weren't for me.

Here are some pictures of my 710 BKII's before and after it's 1st machine wash with an air dry. (2 initial hot soaks before this wash) This pair has 159 days of actual wear, however, since I lead a very inactive lifestyle, there isn't as much progress as people who have worn theirs for fewer days. I spend a great of time sitting in front of a computer and it shows - the most contrast was in my ass
