NWT/NWOT Helmut Lang Jeans
3 pairs! Size: 31,32,33
Exact measurements pending.
Tag reads: Classic Vintage Bootcut
Dark Wash with minimal distressing
Labeled "Boot Cut", closer to a full, straight leg
(see picture #1)
Made in Italy
MSRP: $210
My Price: $65 + shipping ($7 conus)






Measurements:
Size 33
Waist: 33"
Inseam: 34"
Rise (F): 10 7/8"
Ankle: 9 1/4"

Size 31
Waist: 32"
Inseam: 34"
Rise (F): 10 7/8"
Ankle: 9 1/4"

The jeans are straight leg, so the ankle measurement appears to be the same as the knee, etc.

Actually I forgot to check when I was buying them. They are, in fact, (possibly?) selvedge. Or have the little red line across the stiching. I'm not much of a denimhead other than I like plain washes with minimal detailing a la HL, APC, and Nudie.

edited: To include selvedge pic

I don't believe it's actually selvedge, by that picture. Still, a good deal, and I'm looking forward to the measurements!

Definitely not selvage. HL in selvage is a rare beast. I've been looking for a pair of raw selvage in ages.

Those aren't selvage, but HL denim is still very, very nice. My non-selvage one-wash HL jeans have been much more durable than my raw APC Rescues. Still after very hard wear, there's no fraying at all, which is not the case with the APCs.

Size 32 HL jeans sold!

I might be able to get ahold of more pairs, but in these limited sizes only. Please send a PM if you wish to reserve a pair.

I might also be able to get ahold of a few John Varvatos casual, five-pocket, cord pants for $45 + shipping. In olive, gray, and maybe a brown. Please PM for interest.

Can you get me a measurement of the true waist size on the 33? Knee, ankle, and thigh measurements would also be nice if you're getting out the tape. Thanks in advance.

Matt, I just measured the waist of a few pairs I own, and it would seem like the 33 would fit me better. Is there anyone else already going to buy them?

If you are interested in either size 32 or 33, please send a PM, I may be able to snag a few more pairs.
