    I feel like the grey silks have a lighter feeling texture in addition to lighter weight. My knock around pair are Japan Standards which are 12.5oz and the Grey Silks felt lighter then them too. I can only imagine the difference between those and the HAs

    Does anyone else find there to be a pretty big variation in the same size? I have 7 pairs of 31 slims, and none of them fit quite the same. My 101s currently fit the best, and my BlackXBlacks I can still barely wear without feeling like my legs are cast in concrete, and this is 4 or 5 wears in. My naturals almost felt big on me when I first put them on.

    Anyone else have similar experience?

    And I'm gonna have to lose a bit more weight... These things are tight, despite having the same measurements as my Tellasons.

    Same here. Brown Slubs are tight and like iron, Silks are way large. Both 34 Slim.

    While the "stretch" is different (I have 6 pairs) the actual measurements seem pretty close.

    I have 8 pair of Gustin jeans, and each was within 1/2" of the spec size in the waist. Of course that represents a 1" difference between the biggest and the smallest. But I am happy with the fit in all of them.

    They seem pretty damned solid. I'll let you know when I can get them on comfortably.

    Are you rocking a sub 33 waist? Noticing that on the small waisted ones the button loops line up perfect to the yoke seam. On the 36's, just a slight bit over the seam bugs me me it is not consistent on sizes.

    Pulled the trigger on the unsanf cone denim that just went up. $91 is a hell of a deal. I'm hoping they gain a little weight post soak like the loomstates

    Fit pics from my recent HA purchase. I ended up re-cuffing to adjust the stacking.

    Well, not gain per se, but the relative weight per yard will change as the denim shrinks and more "mass" rests in the same measured space.
    Similar to how the loomstates say they start at 13.5 but go to 14.5oz post soak

    Ahh yes that makes sense I see what you mean. That would work until waist thigh stretches?
