Are you talking about the same batch of denim or just the same jean? There is some variation within the manufacturing process and Blue Owl measures every pair. I have always found their measurements spot on to what I have received.

so I have these united dry and n&f jeans and both have hems 0.25" bigger than blueowl's measurements. I haven't got a chance to measure the other parts but I won't be surprised if they're a bit bigger too. of course there's a chance that I just happened to receive the bigger ones in the batch. to be honest I didn't buy them from blueowl so I couldn't ask blueowl to measure each item in the stock, I was just using their measurements shog[1].gif

0.25" varies just by how you measure it

not to mention, generally within industry tolerances.

Was going to say this - most e-retailers' site measurements are from an exemplar pair, or the average of many different pairs in stock. A quarter of an inch is a very, very small amount of variation and to be expected from pair to pair.
post #2376 of 2437
All measurements on the site are an average. We measure every piece that comes through the door, and find an agreeable average between them. Some brands have higher variance (.25"-.5" on same tag size, in the most extreme cases), and some such as Momotaro normally are so exact we usually can't find even a tenth an inch in difference. When restocks come in we remeasure and readjust the site based on the pieces we have. Sometimes measurements are so different it warrants adding a new item to the site (see Unbranded new vs old fit, and United made in America vs made in Canada). We can't ever vouch for measurements on a pair purchased elsewhere though, as we haven't measured the pieces they have!

United stuff looks great in general, and a nice price point as well

We liked the fabric and fit so much on the crew neck of The West is Dead's basic tee that we immediately ordered the v-neck version in two colors! The fabric on these tees is a light and super soft tri-blend that has a great textured feel to it. At $70 for a pack of two tees, its the perfect summer basic.
1250530
The fits are slim and long, with a healthy but not extreme vee. The marbled texture gives it an interesting look compared to most solid color basics.

Railcar denim has arrived at Blue Owl! First up is their two women's fits, the Viper and the Donna. Both are very slim/skinny fits that hug the body throughout, but the Viper is a low waist and the Donna a high waist. Both denim use a 100% cotton 13.5oz raw red line selvedge from Cone Mills. The men's denim we will carry is their classic Spikes fit, which is a slim straight with a great silhouette. The model we picked up is their heavier 14.75oz cone selvedge. Some sizes have already sold out from in store purchases, but we have restocks on order and all sizes will be available mid May!

The Stanton version of Rogue's Indigo/Black has arrived at Blue Owl! The "Dark" fabric is a nice medium weight denim, coming in at 13.5oz. Indigo/Black denim is known for high contrast fades, and Rogue's "Dark" fabric is no exception. We expect to see some great things out of this fabric! The Stanton is newly online, and the SK is now fully restocked, both available sizes 27-34, and 36.

We love both Rogue's patch design and their choice to use natural leather, which will become more beautiful with age, just like the rest of the jean.

Rogue uses a custom branded waist band button.

Small details like the lined fly show the care and attention used to make Rogue Territory's denim.

The red and white selvedge is a nice contrast against the black weft. If you look closely you can see the difference in color between the warp and weft at the hem.

Any updates on the Japan Blue x Blue Owl collab?

Been some production delays on the Deep Indigo Monster, we'll release more info soon. In the meantime, here's a new collab!

1274997
We hinted at a second collaboration when the Deep Indigo Monser was introduced, and we are finally ready to announce it! Blue Owl Workshop is happy to bring to you the Japan Blue x Blue Owl 12oz "Hanpu" Sulphur Dyed Tapered Selvedge Chino. This chino is an amazing mix of Japanese history and modern design. Hanpu canvas has its roots in Hyogo Prefecture, where in the late 1700's the first cotton canvas was hand woven as a durable, light, and inexpensive material. The fabric was used as sails for ships, as bags for workers and children, as canvas for art, and mawashi for sumo wrestlers. During the Meiji period the material was widely used to support daily life of the common people, some say it bore the weight of Japan's rapid industrial expansion.
1274998
The chino we have created with Japan Blue uses a light 12oz Hanpu fabric from a blend of USA and Australian cottons. The chino will be available only in a tapered fit, in a limited run of 100 pairs. The driving force behind this collaboration was Jay's dream of a perfect summer pant: a lightweight and sturdy chino that can be worn like raw denim. The fabric's dye has been sulphur stabilized, meaning that it will age very gradually without any bleeding. Our friends at Rampuya likened the fabric to gold rush worker's wear, saying that it will gradually become softer with very nice fading.
1274999
The fabric itself is very comfortable from the first wear. With a standard 5 pocket design and the exceptional material, these will feel like a pair of well-loved jeans. Here you can see the copper rivets and peeking selvedge on the coin pocket.
1275000
The chino uses our Japan Blue x Blue Owl standard collaboration patch, made using a natural cowhide leather.
1275001
Custom Japan Blue branded doughnut buttons, and indigo chambray pocket bags.
1275002
The selvedge line of this fabric is very subtle and clean. Japan Blue's blue inseam detail adds a bit of color while keeping it subdued enough to wear at any occasion. The chino is in production now, and will be available online in 4-6 weeks!

Chino looks awesome! In for a pair for sure
