Really like them - the cut really works for me, and am surprised by how slim they are.
What do you guys think?
What model is this?
Is this selvedge outseam odd?
Pretty dumb/bad hem job. It's a '67 505. It's not odd because the previous owner had the jeans tapered, most likely by a tailor who didn't have much of any experience doing that with denim. I say that because the hem looks uneven and he chose to stitch it with blue thread instead of the original gold.

The problem I've had with PBJ is that while I've loved the denim, the fit was a little off for me. I sized down to account for the stretch but the waist still ended up loose while the jeans were tight in the thighs/knees. I'm not a big dude (maybe a size or two smaller than you) and that was feedback I also got from friends with the same model. But ymmv.
