    FWIW I think the jeans you're wearing already fit great, why do you need a new pair? Going the raw route?

    Also, as an aside, is bespoke denim really necessary? I don't mean to hate, but I find it very hard to believe the time and effort is worth it for a casual garment. Especially considering there are a billion different brands/cuts out there. And that's coming from someone who wears jeans probably 4 days out of the week...

    Couple of reasons;
    - Many of my favorite jeans are no longer made. Although LVC makes the same model the details and fabric are not the same. They no longer make the 38-40 inseam.
    -I have a long inseam and it is hard to get jeans that can be washed and remain long enough
    -There are certain details that I can't find currently in stores that I can get with bespoke
    -I need a new pair of dark jeans
    -Jack Knife bespoke jeans start at $200 so they are actually cheaper than most of the jeans in the better specialty shops.
    I just wrote about my bespoke experience this morning on this thread. It was fun. Urban is going over today for his first visit.

    Forgive the paraphrase, but is that a dagger I see embedded in the earth? [​IMG]

    Whoa, 38-40 inseam? That is ridiculous. How tall are you? From the pictures I would have guessed 32; 34 at the longest.

    I can understand, now with your measurements and your source for jeans, why you would go bespoke. As a 31" inseam, athletic build, I can grab most any RRL pairs off the rack for a great fit. I suppose I should count my lucky stars. :)

    Do the math. 38-40 inch inseam of Levis STF 501XX shrink 4" making them 34-36. Then, if you want any cuff you need another 2". I'm usually a 34.5 - 35" inseam in a jean. So not at all ridiculous.

    You forgot one of the buttons on your cuff...


    Your victory is complete.

    Nice jacket. I'm having a hard time imagining the top and bottom together. Any chance of a full-length?


    This is a maneuver with a high degree of difficulty. I am pleasantly undecided about it.


    You've been led down a blind alley, SG. o/o's action shots with the missus suggest that Old Woo has a bit more hair on top.
