...very nice... thanks...

Mistral - what's the inseam on those babies? Curious to know how much wider the leg opening would be for someone with a bigger size (34) and possibly shorter inseam (app. 31)...

Reason I ask is that one of the reasons I'm looking for a looser fit is because I want something that will compliment my RW GT's...

If I do get these, I'd have to cuff... Peach selvedge is too cool not to show off...

I got one of the 39 inseam batch, after the hot soak they shrank aprox. 2 to 2.5 inches, after that I've gotten them hemmed, probably taken around 2.5 off. So it's kind of safe to say these are about a 34 inseam. Maybe a tad shorter, but not much.

About the leg opening. The 0201 tapers down from the knee. It's a small taper, so I doubt it's really that noticeble, but when you decide to hem it is going to affect the leg opening.

If you have any more questions, I'll be glad to help you if I can.

Many thanks, Kind Sir... Will ask if I think of anything else...

I think, for this model, I would like that little extra in the opening... So these may be a go...

Still haven't decided, but narrowed it down to the 201's if I do indeed decide to cop... Was thinking of other brands/cuts before pin-pointing this one as thee one...

big might be able to order them for you. they might even have a new shipment coming in soon ... you never know, so you might want to ask. can you go down a size? if not, and you need something right away these guys have your size http://www.nordicdenimhouse.com/inde...&product_id=25 but i bet big can help and would be cheaper.

Where do you buy Momos from on Rakuten that has free shipping?
post #479 of 3347
...a shop called And-Japan... they advertise free shipping to the US... TBH, I'm kind of sketching... Have you guys ever ordered from the english version of Rakuten? Placed the order yesterday evening... did the paypal invoice thing... Haven't recieved the invoice yet... Does anyone know how long it takes the merchant to get back to you? I'll keep you guys informed...

Oh, OK, I've ordered from AND-Japan before. They are legit, and they do have free shipping to the US. I just wasn't aware that they carry Momotaro, I had only bought Skulls from them before.

I paid by credit card, not PayPal, when I ordered from them, but I'm pretty sure that they're closed on the weekends, so I wouldn't expect to hear back from them until Monday in Japan (late Sunday here).

You're pretty safe ordering from the English version of Rakuten. I've done it probably 25 times or so, and I've always received what I ordered. The only thing that is a potential problem when you order from Rakuten is that they don't accept returns or exchanges internationally, so make sure you know your size before you order.
