SE suggested i pick up some Real Japan Blues 105BSP for a similar fit to the 634S... until you posted this i never really realized there were two brands so similarly named. I'm pretty sure i've seen both brands out there but thought they were the same thing. Didnt really pay close enough attention i guess. Following your link... man i really dig some of those shirts. The red/blue plaid work shirts are awesome.

I like PBJs a lot, I'm currently wearing the XX-007 as my primary pair of jeans. That's the model with the same cut as the flagship XX-005 model, but with the weft yarns also dyed with indigo. They are super dark but should fade nicely.

Now if only there was an easy way to get a pair of PBJ's in the UK!

The XX-007 is really a nice model, here is a faded pair (not mine):

Thanks for that shoque! I can look forward to good things as I have expected. So on my last trip to NY I finally decided to grab a pair of PBJ xx007's (W32). I have been lusting after them for some time and made the decision to grab them while I could try them on in person. Thanks to Gordon and the BIG staff, I was able to do so right before they closed so I could avoid the crowded nature of the store.

I am jsut afraid of the thighs, they are tight.

Landon, rest assured that these will stretch out easily. They have probably the most stretch out of all of the jeans that I have owned.

Right on. Thank you both for the reassurance. They will be getting another soak and hang dry in the sun tomorrow. I could definitely use another half inch or so in the length as well so I can wear them with vans. Yeah, great denim/ jean so far...

Isn't PBJ just a Flat Head sublabel?..

Seul, Real Japan Blues is, not PBJ though.
