@chipshot Try Momotaro. You can pick them up fairly reasonably from Denimio.com ($185 shipped from Japan). Their fit is excellent if you want a slim, not skinny, fit. Their 0702 is 15.7oz which is a good mid-weight jean that you can wear year round. In other news, amazing boots. I am quite envious of everyone who got in on those! I'll have to give Ed a call to get on the next list. How long did it take to get those boots?
