    Registration is still open so I haven't done an official list yet.

    Plus I'm still waiting on some participants to send their payment. :plain:

    Market this context guys, we could use a few more participants.

    We may even extend registering to the end of December.

    How many so far? Maybe someone can post on superfuture.

    Sending mine to get tapered tomorrow. Going to take the knee measurement to 7.5 and the leg opening to 7.0. I look almost bootcut like on me if I don't cuff them, and even then they still flare too much. (BOM003)

    curious to see the execution on this. I'm considering going down that route, but if I do I'm going to wait a month or two till these get broken in a bit more.

    I sized...up? i wear (edit:wore) the apc Petit standards in 29 and 30, and got a ton of stretch out of them. these are 34s. i got the 33s at ffirst but the top two buttons were legit impossible to close, and while Jay was able to stretch them out over time, i didnt want to take the chance given this is my first pair of momos (can't wait for the BOM midnight warrior in tapered fit).

    for fit reference, i'm 6'4, 185lbs.

    I think most companies have some ease built into their fits. for example, jcrew's 32 tagged waists often measure much closer to 17 inches laid flat. Paul Smith does this as well. Momos clearly are actual measured waist, or true to size.

    I also sized up, while I got my 0701 TTS... I just couldn't fit into them when going TTS.

    [Edit: I see you are talking about BOM3, never mind, thought you were talking about the 0702]

    I haven't posted fit pics yet since I knew the whole time I was going to do this. I will post them when I get them back but your fit looks pretty spot on. Did you soak them yet? I've already soaked mine and there is still too much room from the knee down for my liking.

    Was in the library all day today prepping for finals. I was (dutifully) wearing my contest-702s. I am amazed at how soft the denim is (not light, not flimsy; soft). I've been wearing these since the 6th, about 3 weeks, and they're breaking in the fastest I can ever remember any raw that I've owned. My PBJ's felt crisp and scratchy for maybe 6 weeks at the start, but these are very quickly breaking down into the most comfortable pair I own.

    Getting a bit of Iphone fade, and a bit along the hem. Nothing else too substantial. Need to start rotating my phone so it doesn't wear through so quickly.

    +1

    I've noticed the same, I was wearing mine with a pair of white achilles I just bought and I have come to the conclusion that these jeans do not look good with all white sneakers, too much of a contrast. Will be going back to my black achilles tomorrow and hopefully a tan pair of MMM Gats in the future.

    Iphone fade: I probably wont rotate my phone.

    RE: leg opening

    These things are not as now as they were when I first got them, over time the "flare" has gone away and I like how they look. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I think the fabric has relaxed and isn't as flat as it once was.
