    About 1/2" of stretch along the waist after 1 month of wear.

    great lf posts.

    One more coming, we also received a new version of the Left Field White Oak Cone denim. All 3 of our denims use the same details and fit.

    All of the Left Field denims as of this season are made in a new factory which also makes denim for LVC and RRL. Looking at these denims compared to previous seasons, I do see noticible enhancements to the quality of construction such as a simple bar tack on the chainstitched hem to prevent the thread from unraveling if snagged on something like a boot hook.

    Also, the Left Field denim fit has been modified slightly from previous seasons. The fit runs true to tag size now and inseams run long at 38". Fit still is slim straight with medium rise.

    Yes, they brought it down off the waist line and I think this is permanent.

    Yes, the rise is slightly higher.

    Final denim of our recent denim shipment from Left Field - - White Oak Cone. This season the fit has changed slightly including a longer inseam at 38", slightly higher rise (but still a medium rise), and a more defined slim straight silhouette. New factory as well which also makes denim for LVC and RRL. Left Field's denim has always been the highest level for a USA made denim, but the new factory has made some enhancements to the overall quality of construction. We have already sold out of a few sizes, but more will be coming later this spring of this model.

    I received the Left Field Nisshinbo Mills 15oz about an hour ago and tried them on.

    They feel like they were made for me. The attention to details of the sewing, the feel of the fabric, the pockets etc. all are of the highest quality.

    Thanks Jay for the great service and fine hemming.

    I'm a style newb. Are you supposed to buy your pants 3 inches too long, just so you can roll them up?

    some people prefer to double-cuff, but for those that like to stack or prefer to have a small single cuff will need to have the jeans hemmed. most of the high-quality raw denim comes with really long inseams, so most people have to get them taken up. jay's group at blue owl does an excellent job with hemming them.
