Thanks for all the great feedback, and thanks to everyone who ordered! We're shipping out your jeans today. To get to the questions...

Yes, that's right. But you should expect much less stretching from these.

Sure, I can take them later today.

The EP's do look excellent. I'd love to try them, but I'm not near NY and the return policy doesn't offer a refund.
Oh, we do! All SF members have a 14-day refund policy with us. You can always send something back if it doesn't work for you.

Well, we can't give too much away, but these guys have been in business for a long time. They produce quite a few lines of premium denim and do a lot of work with the Japanese.

Hah, I never even thought of that! I've actually only heard of 5EP through the SF collab jean.
EP's is meant to be a short version of Epaulet's. And our proper name is "EP's by Epaulet"

Shipping to Asia sorta sucks though
Yes, 30 should be right on!

Thanks Jason! The contrast stitching was a tough call. I wanted to set these first jeans apart from the pack. I knew that no contrast would turn some folks off, but hopefully an equal amount of guys like it as a detail. It helps them jive well with our shirts and sportcoats.
That said, we'll surely make a contrast stitched model in the future. Our goal is to establish one or two signature fits (like the shirts) and introduce a slew of special editions and design tweaks.
