    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What's wrong with the workmanship?

    Had to go in on the rainbow nep... just too neat to pass up. Now I just wish I could get in on some greyxgrey's, pink ID, purple ID, etc. I like the unique stuff. 31 slim... here's hoping it fits!

    seams were really crooked, not parallel to eachother. loose threads everywhere, untrimmed. looks like someone rushed the hell out of the sewing.

    should've taken pictures but it's off to someone else now.

    One of three hit with VAT and charges so far. It would be the jeans that got caught too! Worked out about 30% of the price of the goods

    Is getting jeans shortened by 4-6" a problem?

    Mine came in, and I'm not sure what I think yet. The rise seems really high, the slim cut isn't very slim, and I would have liked to have sized down 1-2 more sizes, which unfortunately wasn't possible because the smallest size they make is a 29. I'll get them tailored and see how I feel about them.

    After seeing how much my Heavy Japans have relaxed, i'm really considering going down a size. Anyone willing to trade a indigo/indigo size 32 for a size 31 (preferably another indigo/indigo)? Mlech415 (at) gmail (dot) com [i might even consider a size 30, if someone got their size really off]

    After wearing them for a day, I'm warming up to them. The fit around the thigh isn't too bad... I don't think I could have sized down 2 and still fit my legs into the slims. I think a straight standard fit (instead of slim) in a 27-28 would be perfect. Slim in 29 is not bad with a belt. The other pants I have in rotation are Gap selvage slim jeans in size 28. They are quite snug around the thigh, but HUGE around the waist.

    For size, I'm 5' 6.5", 125 lb, 28ish inch waist and I spend most of my free time running, climbing, lifting, or playing ultimate frisbee so I'm fairly lean. I apologize for the crappy photo. The lighting is poor, but the Blue Line2 is DARK.

    Edit: A 27 in the standard fit would have a 20.5" thigh a 14" knee and cuff opening, and a 27.5"-27.75" waist that would stretch to around 29" which would have fit me just about perfectly

    Just a heads up for anyone looking for a belt, I have a size 36 that I am going to put up in the classifieds. Wore it for about an hour, PM if interested.

    How do these slim fits fit compared to the Levis 511 rigid dragon? I am a size 34 in the 511s because of muscular thighs and ass. Thanks

    My pair are fading ridiculously fast... like some of the creases are showing evidence of fading after 3 days of wear... I may have walked 6 miles in the rain on one of those days.

    Hadn't checked in on the website for the longest time as I am in no need of another pair of raws but I just saw this as sold out.
