Geo - this is going to be SDA thread in general , right ?

On this particular pair - a guy on sufu bought these for the heavy weight denim world championship - they are looking good...

black pig, post soak. they´re still very stiff and need to strech back a bit, as you can see:

no worries - long term it will make sense.

so yes, as far as I know Atzec really loves his pair. Given the fact that SDA is one of the oldest Japanese Repro brands I would assume that these are on par with the rest of SDA garments, seriously great denim

i REALLY like the look of those Black Pigs. i've been trying to resist buying them ever since they came out. I am a retailer so i only really wear what i sell or may sell.

the zip is doing a good job of keeping me away.

I own a pair of those SDA chinos. They are really nice, definitely the nicest pair of chinos that I've ever owned, though admittedly they are my only pair of high-end chinos so far. They fit on the slim side, I recommend going TTS with them.

Below are fit pics and some Rakuten detail shots of another SDA model, the D1496. These are 23 oz. LHT with a zip fly and some Lee-inspired details. I am wearing them in the same heavyweight denim contest as Aztec (the Black Pig guy).

Thanks! I love the cut, it's supposed to be based on a vintage Lee model, but I find that it fits highly similar to the SD-103.

The chinos are on their way to me from BiG, should arrive today. The sizing seemed a bit odd, I ordered a tag 28, BiG measurement 30.5 in the waist, that's the smallest they had... I'd prefer a waist to come in around 29-30 allowing for stretch, but we'll see.

They're supposed to be raw (sanforized), did you soak yours initially, and if so did they shrink at all?

I'd be careful about trying to stretch these, because the top button is sewn on, not riveted in. If you try to stretch them too much, you're likely to pop that top button off.

Also, I recommended TTS on these, because even though the waist measurement looks like it runs big, these chinos fit pretty narrow in the hips. I was considering sizing down due to the waist measurement when I ordered mine, but I'm really glad that I didn't.

I did hot soak mine, but I didn't really notice any change in how they fit me afterwards. The inseam might have shrank up a fraction of an inch, but I didn't measure before soaking, so I can't confirm it.

Would it be recommended to soak these prior to wearing?



My concern is if I don't soak them, it will wear out a lot quicker,and if I do, they will shrink to a point that I won't be able to put them on....they just fit

I was waiting for the stretch before soaking
