    I really doubt they'd do a good job...

    I saw this company on Canadian version of 'Dragon's Den', U-Jeans, for $140 you can do MTM jeans with a bunch of optional features. It seemed like a good idea and decent pitch, looking at the website I'm not sure the execution is there though... but in theory, I would think it makes sense. Probably best for 'off the curve' bodies and such

    Honestly, the $90 raw selvage sound tempting...

    Karl of Rogue Territory, does bespoke jeans in LA. I'm more than sure he mentioned in his thread on Superfuture that he can "clone" your favorite pair of jeans. He's pretty pricey ($500+), but from what I've read and seen the quality of his work is excellent.

    if you read the site, it says their jeans are fowarded from their NYC offices to India, where the actual jeans are reproduced..

    i saw his stuff last time I was in american rag, very impressive operation he's running there.

    ^^^ +1 although I'm not sure how well business has been (rumors).

    I've mentioned this before but Crate does mtm stuff a la carte through Secret Service. I don't think they can "clone" for legal reasons but you can still get closer to what you really want that regular otr stuff. Pricing is around what you'd pay for otr, too (around $150+ depending on the details and such but it's best to just call and get legit pricing info).

    I didn't read the entire website, but if they're reproducing silhouettes, then I'm all for it--thumbs up!

    However, if they're "cloning" branding marks as well, then that's just a knock-off and I give it two thunmbs way, way down.

    I kindly refer you sir, to the dumb like a doorknob on my previous post.

    Anyways... the jeans came in today, pics to come later when I get home.
