I am just a dash under a 32 in normal weird guys so if the 32 has a decent waist size I was planning on getting them and then just a cold soak, or I could do hot and just suffer for the first month. I'd say get them and do just a quick cold soak. Mine were snug when I first got them and I made the mistake of giving them an hour long hot soak.
If you can fit a 32 weird guy you should be fine. I'm usually the bad influence. Having it turned around on me is weird: P and Ty for the advice. On the 33s pre soak I had a solid inch of play in the waist, and I wouldn't mind a slightly skinnier fit. Only problem is I need max shrink on the legs seeing as I'm 5'5". After pre and post soak I noticed that the black 32s were bigger throughout the waist, thigh and inseam.
Take that as you will haha. The other part of it is though, if I get these I'll also cop either the samurai 25oz type 2 or stevenson engineer to round it out to a solid 1k.
I can either go this route or finish up my comp that I have been slacking on for the past year. The only reason I'm leaning denim is because the 32s and samurai may be gone by the time I have enough again in a few months and the comp parts won't just need a case fittings and tubing. I'm pretty amazed there are any 32s left at all, I'm mean there were only 50 pairs of the blacks made.
I was drunk at the bar when they were put for sale online and bought them immediately on my phone haha. When I bought my x when I was first getting into denim they have been thoroughly destroyed since I was plastered off my ass wandering around krakow in Poland at 2am with some friends.
It's amusing how alchohol makes you more willing to spend on something you already want and just can't pull the trigger on. Just chiming in that I love my samurais as well. I have the red hawks instead of the black because I preferred the way the contrast stitching looked and I already had a black on black pair of jeans. The denim is super awesome on them. Have some fading pics on the redhawks? These r my BH. Sorry just saw this.
