Can anyone recommend a pair of black (preferably raw) jeans as similar fit to New Cures as possible? Would get the selvedge Petit Standards when my money finally comes through but I can't find them in stock anywhere. Not a denim head so ain't got a clue where to look.

What waist PS are you looking for?

Petit standards look a similar fit to Edwin ED-71 Selvedge, are the black raws the same?

Got some new raws, they have a weird little flare at the hem opening. A taper job would sort them out, probably a stupid question but should I do this right away or wait till they are settled/worn a little?…

I had that with a pair of new cures and got them tapered straight away. Didn't do them any harm.

should i soak my brand new 1947 501's? will they shrink much? i'm not enjoying all my calvins turning blue

They do shrink a lot, wear then whilst the dry though.

whats the full procedure with soaking then? proper denim n00b

my 1947 501 shrunk 3" in the leg and got a lit slimmer an tighter at the waist.
put them on, get in a normal temperature bath for 20-30 mins, wear them whilst they are drying so they don't get too tight

Wearing them whilst they are drying is a pretty impossible task for any normal human being living a normal life id say?
Even on a lazy Sunday indoors it would be hard as you would make anything you sit on wet and stained with indigo.

yeah takes a while and is uncomfortable.
got pissed off with mine ended up hanging then in airing cupboard

Wear them in the bath,
Take them off, lay them flat on a towel with another one on top. Roll them up, step on it a few times, unroll, put them on again. they'll be dry on you in a couple of hours.
