    11/16.5" rise is low? Wha?

    I don't know about you guys, and this is not intended as bragging, but that's barely enough room for me. If I'm not careful even these can end up causing the dreaded MCT syndrome.

    I can't even imagine wearing those Levi's Skinners with the 3 buttons.

    ok, well i've did a lot of legwork for you guys today...

    i LOVE service in japan, the sales people are amazing. I took care of some orders today, and while I was getting someone's jeans chainstitched- I asked them about pure blue. the guy whipped out a magazine and showed me a magazine spread- which included their address and phone number. he got someone to call them for me and try to ask for directions- but in japan addresses aren't very helpful and directions are hard to give.. so he got the number of someone that supposedly spoke english that knew where it was. anyway i tried calling and they didn't answer... but i walked around and ended up going to the 45rpm store.

    and guess what? they have jomons- they have almost a full size run but they are low on stock- so if you want them they still come out cheaper with shipping and my commission than getting them in NYC. i asked them if they knew where the pure blue store was (haha i guess that wasn't "proper" though, since they split off from 45rpm). but they actually looked it up online and printed out a map for me to find it...

    i found it after this 4 hour adventure- but they were closed. so i might go back tomorrow or in a few days and see what they got. so if you asked me about pure blue jeans previously- we'll see what they have in store.

    Id really be interested in seeing what the natural indigo pure blue's look like, since they don't seem to have any pics online.

    Heh, I think I may have to order in the next 2.5 months solely because you are being so helpful :p

    Did they have the SD-103XX? The natural SDs in the pic look like the aniversary models and those aren't on SDA's fit chart so I don't know how they'd work out.

    They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more;
    the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.
    For the Eternal in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
    and Studio D'Artisan will guide them to springs of living water;
    and 45rpm will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
