These seem pretty damn hard to find, at least for me online. Does anyone know where I can find a pair? I think they look absolutely fantastic. I know one person on this forum owns a pair, if you want to see how they look check out the "Post pics of your denim thread"

I kinda doubt the raw half-selvage ES are going to be found on sale at discounters. The only reason ES have been on sale rather frequently was a little bit of overbuying especially by Saks in the last season.

And you never see the raw stuff on sale, only the really distressed stuff. The Patriot was was the only raw-ish one I ever saw on sale, for some reason that didn't go so well (maybe because it had too much distressing for the raw crowd, not enough for the AmJack crowd).

so how exactly do the kyrre's fit?

i didn't like the fulton's and would have to go with something slimmer if it was going to be earnest sewn. are they the same type of fit as the rotton's or is one slimmer than the other? and is it a skin-tight type fit, or just a nice taper?

sorry for the questions but appreciate any help

I am the one who posted those pictures on the post pics of your denim thread. There are some issues you might want to note before buying these. They are realllllly long. They come pinned up in a huge cuff, where you have to cut the threads to make them plain. Even with the 5 inch cuff they were bunching like crazy and I am 6' 2". I just took them to my tailor and told her to make them 34.5 inch inseam and they came back perfect. I dont know how much was taken off, but I assure you it was significant. Their length is probably something like dior homme.

As far as the difference between these and the Rotton's the Rotton's are like a slightly slimmer 501 and they aren't selvege. The Kyrre's are far slimmer. I tried on both.

These jeans are great though. I wear them more often then any other pair of pants than I own.

Earnest sewn has a limited availability online. I live outside New York so I was able to just go the shop to buy mine. It is an amazing store, if you are in New York it is worth checking out.

Here are some pics of them on me that I took a while back...

so for earnest sewn jeans, are they typically true to size? i wear a 32 in most everything.

the kyrre jeans sound like they'll be a nice slim fit, so i guess it's just determing what waist size to get
