Thanks for the compliment! I'm a FB fan now, but I won't publish the pics from my account. If you want, though, feel free to post them yourself!

Quick question for you: obviously JS does a LOT of customization, but does that ever extend to custom fabrics? If I wanted a pair of rockers with a slubbier denim, or an overdyed denim, or anything else... is that level of customization possible?

Unfortunately not threeman. Aside from one limited edition Skinny run we did, all of our jeans have orange selvedge woven custom for us. To get that requires a large fabric minimum at the mill and thus we cannot do just a pair or two in any particular denim.

But if there's a fabric type that you really like, send us pictures and we'll keep that look in mind when we select our next limited edition fabric. We tend to do one every year or so these days and we're selling through the last of our limited gray fabric now. So by all means, send us some pics.

I know you all are into a bunch of different brands and whatnot, so I thought I'd let you know about huge denim break-in blog that was recently launched. 22 brands. 22 bloggers. From raw to ruins. They are inviting comments and discussion on all things denim. If you have some time to kill, check it out. www.denimdebate.com

You guys still have the grey denim?

Just to clarify how much stretching should I expect with the Rockers?
I am a true waist size 32. I tried on the size 30 Rockers and they were too big....didn't look good.
I then sized down to the 29 and can button them up but they are snug. The girl at Jean Shop said to go with the 29s. They measure 31".

Yes we do, limited sizes in the Skinny and Rocker fits.

First off, there's a big event on Saturday at Ron Herman in LA. We're launching a shop within their shop.

Second, we are also in American Rag in LA and a couple others. I'll get back to you on the others as soon as I can.

If they button and you're not dying in them, they are a good size. They stretch between a half and a full size and run at least two sizes big to begin with.

I'm normally a 31 or 30 and here I wear 28.

My wife purchased a pair at Jean Shop-SoHo last Saturday. Yup, we braved the storm and spent the whole day out, thoroughly soaked, cruising for denim.

Her jeans look great, and the sales guys couldn't possibly have offered better service. Or company, for that matter. Let me set the stage: Ren spent the better part of an hour helping my wife with different cuts, sizes, finishes. She was dead-set on purchasing that slightly distressed pair, but didn't want to haul them around in the storm all afternoon. I was dead-set on making my way over to Levis to try on those Japanese selvage 514s.

Any custom denim salesperson would be forgiven for feeling a bit crushed when told "we'll be back later to pick these up... heading over to the Levis Store now". But Ren's great humor and engaging personality didn't waver a smidgeon - a truly nice guy who in all likelihood assumed he wasn't making a sale today.

I got my 514s (highly recommended guys!), and we eventually made our way back to W. Broadway. Ren (and Pete?) were there to greet us, and we couldn't have been happier about spending our money there. Let's face it - dropping over $300 for a pair of jeans is never easy to do, but I can guarantee we'll be shopping there again.

It was indeed Peter and Wren. I passed this link along to both of them and the owner Eric Goldstein. I get very happy every time I come across something like this.

Thanks for the support,

Does anybody own or have any experience with the Rockers in the Khaki Twill?
Thoughts?
post #209 of 233
Anyone know how the classic fit compares to the RRL straight fit? After a year and a few months of constant wear, the RRL strraight fit is blowing out, I'm gonna replace it with another pair of RRL jeans in the same size plus another jean to alternate, I'm thinking about a Jean Shop classic

Just bought a pair of classic fits. I'll update you guys throughout the break-in / fading period
