1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Shoot Jay an e-mail (sales@blueowl.us) or visit his shop in person or online at blueowl.us. Jay can work something out for you, I'm sure.

    I checked out the measurements for every model on blueowl, BiG and denimio, and it seems only the BOM006 are a skinny jean? That and G007 but the knee is still too loose. I'm looking for a cut that's kinda close to the APC PS, or just a skinny or tight w/e tapered jean. I was told to avoid samurai/sugarcane/mccoy/SDA due to their fit, not quality. I think the PBJ xx013s are the closest ones I can find to my measurements but they're sold out everywhere.

    Don't forget, Momos use topstiched inseams so you can get them tapered to fit at places such as Railcar without losing the selvedge.

    My 0202 in 30 arrived. They fit much better than the 0702. Only the leg opening is a bit wide, but I knew this before.

    Just giving them a hot soak. Interesting: They don’t seem to have as much starch as other jeans. Recently I soaked a pair of Jean Shop Slim Fits and the water turned dark yellow brown immediately. That’s the suff I don’t want to have in contact with my skin. The Momos just lost a bit of indigo and the water is still clear.

    My BOM006's after about 3-4 months of wear. 1 soak, no washes. I've basically worn them to and from school. Nothing too hard. The crotch have blown out and been repaired once.

    Thanks! :) And yes, all my jeans do. I don't know why, but it doesn't matter if it's Nudie, Lee or Momotaro.

    Are you sure you're wearing the right size?

    This sounds like an expensive exercise!:)

    I've tried both tight and loose fits but the crotch always blows out. I usually fix them once and then they hold up pretty well. So yes, it's more expensive than if they wouldn't blow out, but I don't seem to find a way around it... My BOM006's are the tightest fitting pair I have atm, and my 0701's have blown out too even though they are a bit looser.

    I wouldn't go for too tight fitting jeans if you're blowing the crotch in 3-4 months - unless you want to wear Iron Heart 21oz denim!

    Very expensive exercise!:)

    Haha, perhaps. Though I wish to think that I don't.

    I would just guess that you're wearing jeans a size too small..

    Try sizing up one and see if they last any longer..:)

    I'll try the 0201's next time, and I'll try a bigger size as well! Though I have a pair of JB0412 to work on first as well, so a new pair of denim isn't planned until winter. :) Thank you for you help!
