    Looking good!

    Any idea how long the 0702s will continue to keep crocking/spreading indigo onto other clothing? I'm at ~2 weeks effective wear and still get indigo showing up on my beater shoes. God forbid I got indigo onto my suede Aldens[​IMG]

    TBH, I soaked mine the night before their first wearing, and I've had no bleeding whatsoever. May be worth a shot.

    I don't get a whole lot of bleeding out of my 0702s...at least compared to my 0701s. I soaked them when I first got them though.

    You should be able to get the stains out of your suede shoes though if you use a good suede cleaner. Just needs a bit of elbow grease and some Saphir.

    I will try giving them a good soak. Luckily I meant to write "God forbid I get..." instead of "God forbid I got...". I haven't gotten any indigo on my suede as I haven't worn them with jeans yet [​IMG].

    The electric blue fades coming out are beautifully. Will upload some pics once I sort through my camera photos.

    Also...ladies love the pink inseam [​IMG] I paired the jeans with a striped pink OCBD and they all swooned.

    Edit: Apparently I forgot how to write grammatically correct sentences.

    Got a pair o PBJ XX-012 and they are great. Can't deal with the BOM003s low rise anymore, don't think I'll be wearing them again for a good amount of time.

    what part of the rise is bothering you the most? unless you low ride then the crotch will always be at the crotch even if the rise changes. the rise just changes where they sit on you, how high or low on your waist/hips

    I wore them as low as the waist would allow me but my thighs have gotten bigger and everything's just too tight up there now.
