    Here are some pictures of the PBJ-001s. I shot all the pictures in natural light without enhancing them. I wish I could post more pictures wearing them, but the person who took the photos shot photos of my jeans from the knee up. Enjoy.

    Those are schweet.

    How pricy are those, anyways? Aren't they upwards of 500 semolians or something?

    So did you order true to size and how does it fit in the waist?

    The texture on those is insane. They're beautiful!

    I'm not jealous either.

    Wow, the fit is amazing on you, so much better than on me (I think my legs are too skinny). I'm considering having a skilled tailor take mine in from the inseam to make them a lot skinnier through the thigh. Is this crazy talk? Can it be done? I was interested in them for the quality of the denim, not specifically the fit. Love to hear some opinions.

    they're different- the okinawas aren't nearly as 3D as the PBJ's

    yeah, it can definitely be done, and you wont be able to tell that they've been altered. just make sure you get a good tailor, maybe go to a clothing store and ask them where you should go.

    Roland, nice fit! I thought they were much looser than that.

    i think normal tailors might have trouble with the AI-001's fabric though- hell it takes PBJ 3 days to hem a pair of jeans. and they'll have to match the stitching on the AI-001 it'll look weird if they don't.

    What do you mean by this? My Okinawas appear to be at least as hairy, with probably more color variation(little white slubs woven into the material), although it's really hard to tell from the photos.

    What's the weight of the AI-001 fabric BTW?

    i've handled both. the fabric is very different. okinawas aren't nearly as "slubby" or "wobbly". reposting pictures here: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] sorry, pics were taken quickly in shop.

    I see what you mean by "wobbly". There are sort of natural peaks and valleys or puckers to the fabric of the PBJs that aren't there at all with the Okinawas, even though from your pictures the Okinawas seem equally as "hairy", or even hairier.

    Okinawas (afaik) have sweet sorghum woven into them, which will cause them to be significantly hairier, and hence the little white slubs you are referring to, MC#4.

    Both are really great fabrics.

    BTW, OP: those jeans fit you really well.

    coldrice, a tailor should have no problem with hemming / modifying these jeans as they would any other pair of trousers. They wouldn't be able to match the sewing because they don't have the same machinery, but as far as tapering and such goes, it wouldn't be noticeable from the outside. I wouldn't rely on time required as a factor regarding the work input required when tailoring/hemming.. I don't think PBJ has any higher amount of work in hemming their jeans as Nordstrom does. After all, Nordstrom takes a week or longer to hem a pair of jeans with a simple lockstitch!
