    Back rise looking nice...I don't typically wear jeans with such a small hem, but I might make an exception.

    Also, where can I get one of those 5EP tees?

    Were the size of the back pockets reduced? I can't tell by the pictures.

    These aren't the type of jeans I'd wear stacked, but I'd like to see it sized down one as well, maybe the legs would be slim enough then.

    We are actually decreasing the hem by 1". So, the jean will actually have a hem just slightly smaller than the knee. The reason for this is that, with the cut and material, a true straightleg balloons a little too much in the calf, and we would like a slimming profile all the way down. Also, the front rise will be dropped a fraction of an inch, and the J fly will be slightly shorter, and the shape of the rise will be adjusted so that Barry is not given a wedgie, and so neither will you, which will fiz the comfort problem as well as the slight pulling at the crotch and butt. The back pocket will be slightly smaller than in the current pictures. Also, the yoke will be a little less angled, and the body of the jean will go over the yoke (like a pair of Levis) rather than the other way around (like a pair of Wranglers).

    Anyway, I think that you guys will like the final product. Denim will be amazing, obviously. I'll post pics and measurements for the finalized sample (size 32) once we have it, and have done all the last minute adjustments.

    If they're slightly tapered, they'll work perfect with my dressier kicks. Good job Fok, I had my doubts about you.

    Can I also get an imprint of your lips embossed on the crotch?
    Hmmm, no can do. I can do a permanent imprint of my Chucks up your ass though, if you'd like [​IMG]

    they look quite nice. i'm impressed.

    i think that reworking the shape of the back rise is a very good idea though. that denim wedgie look is just bad for everyone. i think it puts the pockets at a bit of a strange angle as well.

    i'm excited to see the sample.

    What you guys see as a denim wedgie looks more to me like a nice contour.. I like the fit as is, except if it were up to me the rise would be a bit lower (already being done though, so..)

    I have been trying to explain to the factory in Japan...that " up the crack is whack " and never thought of explaining it as a " wedgie "...thanks. I must add this to denim factory terms for future reference. Never fear, we are lowering the Front Rise and adjusting Back Rise as I type...

    Way too excited for the finished project, it just hurts my bank to know I'm gonna have to buy these and either the SExSC or SExI.

    In any case, I'm trying to ask if is any proposed price-range info that can be leaked?
