    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.

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

    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!

    What caught my attention whilst handling PBJs in person (at Blue in Green, 8 Greene St, NYC) is that the thread thickness in the outseam stitching is really thick-------REALLY THICK. Floss-like. Wide floss. It made me excited.

    Not to hijack, but that hip bag looks really cool. I was looking at them thinking, "Who the hell could pull that off"? So, *golfclap*.

    I think I may need to lose a few pounds to fit into these bad boys. Kinda tight around the crotch at the moment, definitely don't want to be developing a "moose knuckle" [​IMG]

    Good thing i'm on a diet. This will be the best motivation EVER, heh.

    How's the fit on the AI-001's? Would you say they are slimming?

    I don't know how I'd describe them. Not loose, not slim. Regular, I guess? Kinda remind me of my old Rag & Bone RB6 as far as fit is concerned. Rather fitted seat also.
