here's my long-overdue experience with the Jin...
Loving the denim straight out of the box; has a real nice hairy texture (not really a rough hand, though) and is super crunchy. The denim is a real nice dark blue, though if I wasn't told before, I wouldn't have suspected it to be "natural" indigo.
Really neat details as well. I'm loving the donut buttons and pocketbags (though you can't see the fish design without turning the pants inside-out). Only gripe is the leather patch thickness, though that doesn't really bother me so much.
I like how it also comes with this neat set of instructions...
Somewhat troubling that they even suggested "creasing" the jeans with fingers!
I sized down 2 (TTS = 30; jins are 28). This is after a couple of hours of wearing them around the house.
These really are a true "straight leg." Had to double-cuff as a result (no stacks to save me!) since I'm only 5'6"-5'7".
My honest opinion: you will enjoy these the most if your true waist falls somewhere around 32-34.

Didn't mark the days, but 7-10 sounds about right.
