    Finally got my pair back from the tailor! I'm really happy with how they turned out. I don't know what it is or maybe since I've been wearing an almost new pair of N&F x Oni while these have been gone, (which feel like cardboard/sand paper) but WOW. I do not remember these being so soft already! They are already so comfortable. Sorry for shitty pics, it's finals week so I didn't put much effort, plus my dog wouldn't leave me alone. I can post better pics and details of the taper job that I had them get. A size 32 003 that I took to a 7.6" knee and 7.0" leg opening.

    Looks pretty good. I don't often advocate denim tailoring, but when I do...

    Mind if I ask where you had your tailoring done? I'm also considering getting my new BOM003s tapered. Also keep the pics coming guys, they're great for giving me outfit ideas!

    I sent them here: http://www.railcarfinegoods.com/

    Although warning, the pink inseam used was a slightly lighter color than the original. I don't mind it, but it may be a big deal to others. There's only about 3 inches of the original pink seam left, right where the seams begin at the rise. I could take another crotch pic if anyone would like to see.

    My tailored er007-2bs didn't like them at first when I first got to them, but they have conformed better after a couple of wears. He didn't hem them to the length I wanted though. Still haven't heard back from Cal about the contest entry fee.

    Anybody else find themselves rubbing the BOM003 patch randomly? It's so soft!

    They get that greasy kind of look. 2 weeks in.

    they definitely do get that greasy look....i got in a fight with a denim designer who was telling me that they must be "coated" to get that kind of sheen on the creases.

    I am wondering what they will look like with some decent wear. The sheen really is a sight to behold, glowing over the indigo that is peeking trough the high friction areas. I bet all of our pairs will turn out amazing with time.
