    I'm looking to get a pair of these (deadstock, I know they're discontinued), but I've read some disparaging remarks about the fit.

    How do these jeans fit?
    How slim?
    Are they a true straight leg?

    If anyone owns a pair, can you give me the dimensions of yours? (f&R rise, thigh, knee, hem)

    Thanks a lot

    Hi,

    I have a pair in 28 - true to size actual waist 28 too. They fit like a levis 501 - relaxed in the seat and thigh, straight cut I feel they are a mildly wider knee down. WIll try and get you actual sising later, wearing them now.

    Thanks Haresh

    I'm really hoping I can manage to get these... as soon as I'm assured on the sizing, I"m pulling the trigger on them.

    So are they pretty much just sorahikos with natural indigo?

    maybe a tad bit slimmer- but i'm comparing them to my worn/stretched out sorahiko's. not nearly as slim as the jomon's though.

    Could you give me the measures on your Sorahikos then?

    (I know I"m being picky, but it's $500 on a pair of jeans)

    bottom leg opening (laid flat) - 8.75"
    knee width 9.25"
    rise 11"

    keep in mind these have been worn for about a year on and off (maybe actually 5-6 mo. of not very hard wear) and they've stretched out a bit- haven't washed them yet.

    not sure where the standard is to measure that.

    but about 2in. down from the crotch, measured across - 11.25"
