    No rush.

    Alright, alright. I'll get to this in a day or so. Write up some press package just for you. Hugs and kisses [​IMG]

    I just checked the pair of 29s I still have here, and they are closer to 10.75", so the 28 will be slightly smaller. Trust me, these jeans are cut pretty slim, especially at the smaller (30 and below) sizes. One guy who wears a size 26 APC NS found the 28 5EPxSF too small.

    i am looking for a pair of 5ep low down boot cut in rigid raw denim size 33w x 34. can somebody help me out?

    thx


    every once in a while, it could be helpful to read some posts in a thread, instead of just the title, that way you don't end up making posts that have nothing whatsoever to do with the thread.

    Alright, punters. I have less than a handful of pairs left in my possession, and they are for the skinny bastards out there. Skinny dudes, step up. As you can see in the pictures thread, these babies will look good on you.

    For whodini:

    The jeans are made of 5EP's proprietary denim, from a mix of natural and pure indigo, blended by Godmother and a Japanese national treasure (yes, an official one.) The denim is a 13.5 ounce right hand twill woven on a selvedge loom. The hardware is solid brass. The shank buttons are set by hand. The entire construction is done in Japan.

    The jeans themselves were designed by Godmother of 5EP, with input from Mauro and me and the rest of the Styleforum. The purpose of this special project was to produce a slim (but not skin tight) jean that would work for a variety of body types. I think that we've done that pretty well.

    [​IMG] Very cool. I found this on SuFu posted by ringring that helped explain what we're seeing with the pure indigo (synth)/natural indigo mix:

    I have plenty of jeans left for those who want to step up and take the 5EPxStyleforum jean plunge.
    I will have them up on my web site next week for sure.

    I think StyleForum jeans discriminate against people who need bigger sizes.

    I'm going to boycott them.

    Unless of course you happen to make some 38s. [​IMG]

    They were supposed to get a shipment. I don't know if they have yet. You may want to contact godmother directly about the jeans, since the 5EP offices are in NYC.
