Currently selling Samurai S0130XJ in my sig. But I would also possibly consider trades for Levi's LVC 1915 501, Nom De Guerre classic fit grey selvedge (or possibly other colors), and Warehouse #700s in size 30 and new or similarly worn condition.

I was told 4-5 when I ordered (near the beginning of the sale) and we should be coming up on that soon. What leather did you order? Someone mentioned they are doing them in batches, so maybe some of the leathers are taking longer than others.
What constitutes a high or low rise I believe also depends on your height. My most comfortable rise seems to be between 10.5" and 11", which might seem kind of high to some people. But I'm 6ft with naturally longer legs and rise. When I wear something around 10.5" they fall low enough that they look like a mid-low rise on me. What sucks is that I'm only a 30/31 waist, which makes it difficult to even find a 10.5" rise. I don't know why rise is tied exclusively to waist...

Great color choices as well. I feel the J.Crew 1400s have a much nicer shape than Chinese made 574s. vs 574 always look too stubby and short for my taste. But purportedly the new US made Custom 574s are an improvement on that shape (may order...

I don't care for a low rise jean. 501s fit me great except I wish they were slightly slimmer in the thighs and more...
That's a bummer about the delay. I wonder what leather order they have in mind? I ordered on like the second day of the sale and was told about 4 weeks, but it sounds like I might have to contact them to see if that has changed.

You might think about removing the insole if there's one in there. If not then you need to sell on ebay and go up a .5 size. 1907 run small compared to something like the GT. My experience with them is true to size as well. While I have like an inch of toe space in my 11.5D GT, I...
I think part of the reason there is so much sizing confusion is that people are comparing sneakers to boat shoes to boots to whatever else. I don't really feel sneakers are ever a good frame of reference for sizing a pair of boots. Imo, take your standard dress shoe size or brannock size and go from there. What you fit in a pair of sneakers without any width options is not going to always represent what you might fit in a boot or dress shoe with different widths available.
