    Introducing: Paulrose Products [​IMG] In Montreal 1960, Paulrose Products originated as a Canadian-made workwear label named after the two owners, Paul & Rose Svarc, and through hardwork and perseverance Paul & Rose built a family business which continues to operate today. Paul and Rose Svarc are the grandparents of Naked & Famous designer Brandon Svarc. Paul Svarc recently passed away, and when searching his office for items of sentimental value, the above brass die of the original Paulrose brand was found. Paulrose products was abandoned many years ago for other product lines, but now, in memory of his grandfather, Brandon Svarc is rebuilding the label. Introducing the new Paulrose Products. [​IMG] The new Paulrose Products is a modern re-imagination of the original. Paulrose Products are all made in Canada using Japanese selvedge denims and Japanese shirting fabrics, thus the concept is very similar to the Naked & Famous label. The biggest differences is Paulrose Products will focus exclusively on unsanforized denims and more vintage fits. For example, the above denim is a 17oz heavy indigo slub selvedge and offered in the 1947 fit. [​IMG] The 17oz denim has a hairy surface and slubby texture and a deep indigo color. The contrast stitching along the back pocket was a nice detail. The denim will offer all of the features expected in the best premium denim such as hidden back pocket rivets and chainstitched waist bands and hems. [​IMG] The first denim production of Paulrose Products will feature 2 fits which is the "Heritage" 1947 fit and a slimmer fit which we think is close to the Naked & Famous "Weird Guy" fit. There will be 14.5oz unsanforized fabric in indigo, a 14.5oz unsanforized black slub, and a 17oz unsanforized indigo. Several oxford and chambray shirts will compliment the line. Our first shipment is a few weeks away and more details will be availble upon arrival. More details can be seen on our latest blog post: http://blueowlworkshop.blogspot.com/2011/10/introducing-paulrose-products.html.

    The Paulrose jeans look really impressive so far. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on how the quality compares to, say, the Japanese N&F collabs and Momotaro, Jay-D.

    Anyone have any idea about sizing these? Are they vanity sized like regular NF or are they more a TTS? They are out there for sale some places, but no where with sizing.

    When will Blue Owl have these for sale?

    They measure true to size, but I would size up one if you're going to presoak to get the shrinkage out of the way. www.tateandyoko.com just launched and the jeans and shirts up.

    We have them now. I will carry 2 styles of the denim to start, both of the 17oz. We are doing shrink tests now and getting more information about the fabric. Once we know how to size them, we will get them up. Probably get them online by Friday.

    I want to pick these up. I'm right around a true 31 and I was wondering what size to get. I saw the sizing on BlueOwl, and with a tagged 30 being 30.5 and a tagged 31 being a 31.5, knowing that the shrinkage will be small, which size should I go for? I wear 29 in weird guys, but they've stretched to the point where I have to wear a belt, my 30 weird guys fit better in the legs but the waist has stretched too big without a belt. I want a comfortable fit (not too tight), but I also dont want them to stretch so much that they fall off.

    I am 6' and 165 lbs and typically wear Weird Guy 30 and Skinny Guy 31. On both the Paulrose heritage and slim fits of the 17oz fabric, I am a tag size 32 which runs fairly tight in the waist line, but can still button all the way with a little effort. After a soak, I will not be able to button all the way which is ideal for the fit I woulld want as they will be slimmer throught the legs and the waist line witll stretch back out after a littel wear. This fabric is dense, tightly woven, and will be a challenge to stretch, so do not get aggresive with sizing down. The fabric is tough, but very comfortable and I would be 100% comfortable wearing dry. If you choose to wear dry, just be carful about hemming as they will shink a bit in the inseam which we have found at about 1".

    I would recommend a size 31 for you in either fit. If you want something slighly roomier and will defintely soak, you can go 32 in the slim cut, but definitely stay 31 if you choose the heritage fit as it will be too baggy in the seat and thighs to size up.

    Above only goes for the 17oz fabric. I may give a different opinion on sizing for the 14.5oz fabric once we get them in stock.

    I'd love to love this but the rise is too low for me. I find the 1947 to be a pretty good match for my needs except for the fairly low rise. Then again I'm not knowledgeable on historical 501 cuts, but on a pair of jeans with 13" thighs, I would love to see a higher rise than 11.25".

    All measurements are from unsanforized denims (not soaked/dry).

    I'm a 33 in the N&F Weird Guy (and Paulrose seems like an offshoot of N&F), but I'm starting to feel it's a little tight on me in the thighs/ass/legs. The waist is at least an inch-and-a-half big. I'm guessing I'd be a 33 in the Heritage cut here, judging from the measurements, at least?

    These run true to size, so the sizing is way different then regular NF.

    If I get weird guys to fit in the waist I'm a 28, in Paulrose I picked up a 30 and it fit about the same. They were relatively tight presoak. They are drying right now, but from what I can tell, I'm going to have to stretch these out to get them to button up.
