    there is part of me that does want to drop $200 on a single garment

    and another part which could not refuse something described as dollar for dollar the "finest jean on the market" with only 100 made

    It's a slim straight that should fit most. I can't promise the world. Chad and I are only human.

    The patch is badass but the leather guy is doing his stuff so chad couldn't snag a pic.

    I am very proud of this jean and so is Chad. For the die hard it must be made in Japan this jean isn't for you. It's made in the USA !!! No japanese shuttle loom will replicate this denim. The denim has a beautiful unique look with special characteristics that only a vintage american loom can produce.

    there is 108 jeans total. I hope you guys like. I left out two things that I will do for the Spring Wolf vs Goat collection.

    Best,
    Mauro

    PS- the pics are for artistical purposes that jean looks much different and I promise you will have a shitload of fun breaking these motherfuckers in!

    A tailored belt loop is a more expensive more secure way to sew beltloops. IMOP I think ALL premium jeans following a certain genre should have them.
    APC and KMW have them. The belt loop os sewn on the top of the waist band on the jean and then tucked under the waistband.
    I will have more pics coming soon.


    acutally it is tappered but it's not a skinny jean. I need my boys like JQBOMB to rock these!

    The rivets and shanks are all black and they fade bronze ( just like the denim fades from black to blue and if you wear them long enough to white). The company is the same company crates uses.
    The thread is 100% cotton.

    Clothes hanger loops is a pretty clever idea. Is that original, or has it been done before?

    Surprisingly, BR does it on their shorts. Its pretty handy considering I don't have a ton of clip hangers.

    I'm SOOO tempted to post the pic of him working over the grill with the little piggy flashlight. I may be an asshole but he's actually a cool guy so I'll resist.

    I say go ahead and do it , Albert. Justin has a great sense of humor and can grill with the best of them.


    The jean will be ready next week at the latest. I want to put it on the web to make things easier for you guys and my staff.
    I am still on the fence about pre-selling them. I don't want to run in the same situation like the wings and horns boots.[​IMG]
    Those will be here next week for sure probably sooner.

    I'm really, really interested as I'd finally like a pair of go-to jeans. $200 seems like a pittance for these babies.

    I assume they are, but I have to ask: are they versatile? Do they dress up and down?

    I made promise to you guys. when i say it will be limited it will be limited. There was only 4,000 yards made of that fabric and most of it was bought before I met up with Henry to talk denim.

    everytime I do a limited edition it will be just that. Nothing drives me more nutty than a designer that says here the limited edition and oh by the way it did so well we are addingit to our collection...WTF!?!

    You can go ahead and set aside a pair for me in 31 or 32, pending measurements. They sound pretty sweet.

    PLEASE do preorders ... no way can i wait on these if there are only 108 of these.

    whats the sizing like? did you do size 28 to like 38 or something? im probably the smallest size you made.
