    however, if you fall into the other category (95% of people), and want a low-priced, well-fitting, limited-edition jean, then by all means, add this to your cart.

    Pretty hard to add them to your cart when they're sold out. [​IMG]

    Hey Guys,

    We received a box from Farinelli's yesterday with jeans and they are currently being repaired. People who sent jeans direct to SS should have received them back by now. I will update again when the jeans get shipped out.

    thanks,

    Chad

    Bobby,
    just send the jeans back and ask for a refund. it's that simple.


    Sorry about the delay. we have shipped out all the jeans for the most part either back to their owners or to chad for more serious repairs.

    if someone could please post chads address just in case anyone needs repairs they can send them straight to him.
    Best,
    Mauro

    Just received my pair and I think I'm in love. I bought TTS and they probably couldn't fit any better. A little tight in the hips/upper thighs but I'm sure that'll stretch out in no time. Well done, Mauro!

    Would you guys say the CvF jeans fit similar to KMW jeans in the waist (accounting for stretch)

    Love my pair, debating whether to pick up one of those 31's, only thing holding me back is I don't like sizing down. and for anyone who has complaints, you should just call.

    I'm surprised there are 31s left, they were the best size out of all of them

    Hard to find a jean that fit's you really good (obviously in this case it does for me), and them discounting it makes it more appealing. what sz did u get? Maybe we can do a trade/cash for something (I believe you contacted me about some stuff I had for sale?) pm me if interested.

    hm. now some PM has me thinking. how much should these shrink out? my true waist is around a 31, the waist for a sz30 CvF is 32 listed on the site... should i pull on a pair of 30s? would these shrink up any with a soak?

    They're coated. Why would you soak them? Anyway they'd just stretch out again. Buy TTS or at most down 1. It ain't rocket science.

    Shrinking will be minimal, you'll stretch them back out with wear, etc. Also, even if your true waist is 31 I sincerely doubt that when you measure any jeans that you've worn more than a few times that they'd come out to 31". More than likely they measure 33" which is why the jeans have been sized and tagged the way they have. People have been more than happy going TTS. People have been more than happy going one size down. If you haven't noticed it's because they'll basically stretch out to roughly the same size either way.
