    Here is a pic of that fabric. Urban, I was thinking the exact same thing about a shirt. It would be amazing.

    ^ thats gorgeous

    i may have missed it but whats the usual turn around time for a pair? Do they offer multiple fittings? Lastly, when do you expect to receive your pair?

    I seem to remember them saying the second fitting is in a week-ish. They have everything done except the waistband. If adjustments need to be made, they'll have you come back; otherwise they attach the waistband and hem the pants while you wait abt 15 minutes.

    If I mis-remembered, maybe PSG or Parker can chime in.

    thanks UC. I foresee a pair of bespoke denim in my wardrobe in the near future.

    They said I should expect 3 visits. The first for measurements and to discuss specs, select fabric, etc. The second for a fitting. The third for the complete jeans which they will hem for me while I am there.

    I saw them Tuesday for my first appointment and they needed a week before they would be ready for my second appt, so I go back next week. They are just getting started. So, after a bit of time perhaps they can streamline some of the process for the out-of-town visitors?

    I'm going in for my second appt tomorrow where, as I understand, they will have jeans without a waistband ready for me for a first fitting. I will take some more pics and post them.

    I heard about Jack/Knife for a while and just saw this thread. I thought it's a great sf made denim but bespoke too!? I'll sure chk it out soon :slayer: btw that fabric above looks so nice. Could they do a custom shirt in any fabric too?
