    So, assume for a moment that Styleforum was doing a collaboration with 5EP, a slim (but not super skinny), straightleg jean with a mid-low rise, in the rigid (raw) state. Would you be interested? If so, vote for your size. Requests, ideas? The jeans would obviously be in the 5EP denim, with 5EP details and a special limited edition 5EP x Styleforum stamp.

    This would be your chance to play designer. Go nuts.

    34, mid rise (worried about back rise as is my biggest qualm about 5ep) button fly straight from knee down, not too slim

    Don't really need styleforum stamp but maybe a couple little details signifying they aren't run of the mill (if that's even possible) 5eps

    If I wear a 30 in the washed boot, what would my raw size be? Tell me and I'll vote.

    I'm a 33x32

    I'd like to see a straight leg, mid rise (10.5in), not very slim jean. I don't like them big and baggy but I want some room in the thighs. I think I'm in the minority here though, most of the people on this forum seem to wear jeans very skinny.

    I don't care about the button vs. zipper fly but most are going to choose button.

    yeah. I've got a bit of a hangup about that too.

    29, longer inseam for tall people/cuffing/hemming/"stacking," button fly. I would definitely, definitely, definitely buy it.

    As far as details to make the jeans distinct from other 5EPs are concerned, I'd prefer they be at least somewhat subtle.

    Depends - if you consider the boot slim (which most don't), I'd be all for it. If not, I'll have to take the fat-ass-pass.

    button fly, mid rise, but maybe a little tapered for some nice stacking on smallish shoes......and 5ep has hidden rivets right? those are a must

    And as said above, something marking them as not standard 5eps.

    come on guys, you know you want a diorx5ep jean! LOL

    mid rise and smaller back pockets. i have the straight low downs and while i love them, the back rise is a bit too much to handle and the big pockets arent particularly flattering.
    maybe a slightly different top button as well to signify styleforum, or changing the backpocket stitching slightly, in a different colour maybe?

    Cool idea. I just made size 30 the dominant size.[​IMG]

    I have to say......I feel like a fucking king every time I put my resin boots on. I think my only gripe (although one I can overlook with all the outstanding merits of this jean) is the lack of a contrasting J stitch. We'll have to rectify that.

    32, same size as my Low Down Boot Resins.

    I'd possibly buy a pair if they were quasi-relaxed straight. Not tapered. They'd probably have to be a little bigger hem than the Ande Whall Grifters.
