Having worn my 0705SP's through two Texas summers, I can confirm that they are in fact a bad option for hot weather.

The 1705, on the other hand, looks really interesting. May need to pick up a pair.

The fit is the same as BOM004, measurements are very similar but not exact as they are a different production run and different fabric.

Not sure if I should grab these BM005s or wait for the BM006.... love the deep indigo on these!

Updated measurements on BOM005 reflects a tapered cut as it was intended. 

 

@Rightyow77.  I understand your dilemma. I am ordering BOM005 and will try to resist BOM006, but probably end up getting both.

Picked up the 1705 from Blue In Green for a light weight summer jean.
Waiting for the BOM006 for my next pair.

How did you size your 1705's? Looking at BiG's measurements, I'm thinking size down one, possibly 2, from 0705SP / 0701. Also wonder if these will stretch more than the standard vintage label denim.

if you dont own any deep indigo or grand indigo, i'd say get both. i have the bom003 and love them, and have the bom005 coming tomorrow!

they both do very different things and are premium examples/executions of both...

I actually went and got my normal size since I have pretty big thighs. From the measurements though I would assume most people would size down one. I'll let you know how much they stretch.

I recommend eventually trying both Momotaro's vintage fabric and one of the indigo/indigo style fabrics. Both are so different in color, fading, and wearability and totally different experience.

Japan Blue: Introducing a new denim....."Zimbabwe + Memphis" 14oz selvedge.


The fabric is a unique blend of 100% Zimbabwe cotton for the warp yarns and 100% Memphis cotton for the weft yards. Zimbabwe cotton is incredibly soft, pure luxury, and fades fabulously. Memphis cotton is very durable, rough, and has nice texture. By combining the two cottons and controlling the tension, the resulting fabric is one that has a soft hand and smooth surface with a touch of slub and a lot of character. It is also a fabric that will fade extremely fast (much faster that the vintage series 0200sp, 0201, 0700sp, etc.)

I know you were just trying to be a smart ass in your comment, but the statement "the exact same jean with black denim (in straight leg)" has greater linguistic economy than "another jean made with 15.7 oz. denim, woven w/ Zimbabwe cotton, with pink inseam and selvege line, black battle stripes and black denim."  As a general rule, when attempting to make a smart ass statement, it helps to first make sure said statement is smart.

You ment to say similar, smart ass.

Where you been, CalTex? We might need to wager on a game or two in the UCL, depending on who plays who in the next round.

How are you liking this pair? I am about to move to a hot climate and am regretting buying 705BIGs when I should have used the money for the 1705 instead. Size 32 anyone? smile.gif
