I've got a pair of these shipping over. I've already got a seam ripper waiting for the cuff tag, and I was actually thinking about darkening the coin pocket leather patch too. I'll have to see it in person, of course, but I suspect that the orange leather will be a little too gaudy for me and that I'll want it darker. Any opinions? I was thinking of just applying a bunch of neatsfoot oil, which is the cheapest/simplest way to darken leather.
I'd like to register my very strong interest in the violet fans (which I assume is the first picture you've posted there)! If you can get those back I'll buy one of those as well as the pink cherry blossoms.
I don't think it's as useful or accurate to say that you've got to learn the rules and then you can break them. Like someone said earlier, rules are to train your eye.

Frankly, if I didn't already have a pair of Levi's Hurricanes and a pair of Martins I'd be looking at the Sunset Hotel too, because I have a real thing for black waxed. That said, as for the Hazlewood, I've got two specific questions: a) how would you describe the rise, and b) how have the jeans faded?
I am generally a real big fan of Blackbird's stock, and their taste in collaborations"”their boots from Alden are some of my favorites around.

But does anyone have any experience with this jean, or with the other...
