    I just bought a pair of SL-100x in 32. They we're pretty tight at first and I was admittedly a little worried that they weren't going to work. However, 3 days of wear have gotten them to a wearable state and I'm sure they'll only get better with time. I have to say, these jeans are extremely well made and feel great to the touch. My only gripe, as I believe others have pointed out, are the back pockets placement/size. They run a bit too far down my leg and are much deeper than any pockets I've ever had before. This makes for a bit of discomfort when sitting on hard surfaces for a long time, and getting my wallet out is sometimes a pain.

    I'll post some picks in a few days, but just thought I'd share my excitement.

    Agree withe the back pocket comment, however I'm sure I'll survive with that. Only current concern is that they may stretch too much.

    Is pocked moving/resizing a common jean tailoring practice?

    Does anyone else with indigo/indigo get a little mental about fuzz and dust showing up?

    A quick picture of the honeycombs of my SL-100x. Seven months of wear. Just had their first wash recently by accident. Had them on the floor of someone's place and they decided to do laundry in the morning. Using regular detergent (probably too much) and they weren't even turned inside out [​IMG]. oh well

    I just read this a couple hours ago and he makes some valid points. I'm seriously thinking about getting a pair soon.

    Don't worry, I think they still look pretty good.

    I'm considering grabbing a pair of the SL-120x shadow denim when blueowl gets them back in stock. Since this is a new run will there be any changes to the overall design/shape of the denim?

    I've read that 3sixteen has a tight denim weave and you can only get .5-1" of stretch in the waist? Is this accurate? I have to order online as there are no stores near me that carry 3sixteen and want to make sure I get the right size...

    Can anyone compare the 3sixteen denim to that of Naked and Famous LHT? Those are my only other pair of raw denim and I love them...but I'm excited to get a second pair to rotate in. The shadow denim should differ in color from the LHT from what I see in pictures, correct? What about fade pics?? I haven't seen anybody post a legit fade pic of the shadow denim...

    Thanks!

    as far as I know, no one has posted up any sort of significant fades on the shadows. As far as sizing goes, you'll definitely need to size up at least 1 from a N&F Weird guy. If I recall correctly the LHTs ran pretty big as well, that on top of the minimal stretching, I'd say possibly size up 2, depending on the fit youre going for.

    I'll figure out the fit based on the measurements on blueowl and self edge once the new denim is in stock. I just need to be sure i account for the proper amount of stretching.

    Is the shadow denim relatively new? Is that why there aren't any real fade pics yet?

    I just read something saying that 3sixteen is extremely soft denim...it's still rigid enough to form creases and get decent fades correct? I mean I've seen fade pics but reading that it is super soft sounds kind of strange for raw denim...

    I have a pair of st-100x from 2 years ago that stretched a good 2" in the waist (no more than that though). so i'm not sure about 3sixteen struggling to stretch much.

    as for shadow denim, it came out 8 months ago. they just posted on their tumblr several days ago some fade shots.

    a few runs ago they tightend up the denim weave i believe. everything from late 2011 til now seems to say .5" - 1" of stretch max I think.....hoping to have somebody in the know confirm that.

    thanks for the fade pic.

    Can anyone tell me how the Slim Tapereds compare to APC Petit Standard? I have the APCs now, but I'd like something that is a drop bigger in the leg but not too much. I am worried that the STs will be too big.

    the STs are similar in the thigh I would say a size smaller PS, but has a bit larger rise (thankfully), the taper from knee to leg opening is not as drastic as the PS I would say, but its not massively different. All in all, the ST is a better cut imo, the rise on the PS is just brutal for a tall dude like me.
