    On pricing, I am afraid that we will not be able to offer the usual SF discount on PBJ. Hopefully when the US dollar recovers, this will change. So, our pricing will end up being the same as BIG for the time being.

    Thus, for our first shipment:

    Indigo Dyed Scarves = $85
    XX-005 One Wash = $225
    XX-010 One Wash = $275
    L-1088 Women's Stretch Deep Indigo = $175

    I have seen a few questions on inseams and I believe all new models will have 35-1/2" inseams after soak. Here are measurements of a couple models as an example. For those who are not familiar with our sizing system, click on the link for an explanation, http://shopatsui.blogspot.com/2008/0...and-pants.html. Please PM with any questions.

    XX-010 One Wash Size 32
    32" waist, 9-1/2" rise, 35-1/2" inseam, 8-1/4" knee, 8-1/4" leg opening

    XX-005 One Wash Size 32
    32" waist, 9-1/2" rise, 35-1/2" inseam, 8-1/4" knee, 8-1/4" leg opening

    I stopped into Atsui this morning for a few minutes to check out the PBJ's and I was very impressed with them. The XX-010's (the purple ones) were also much cooler in person, and both have a nice slub feel. Can't wait to see what the clothing will be like. Here are some of the indigo scarves. [​IMG]

    Cool pictures. My girlfriend and I went to the PBJ store when we were in Tokyo a few months ago. The jeans are, of course, really nice, but I was more impressed with the non-denim items, to which I'd previously had much less exposure. I wound up buying a pair of khaki chinos for myself and a scarf for my girlfriend. The quality and construction of both is unbelievable.

    The only aspect of the store I didn't enjoy was the rocks sticking out of the floor. They contribute to the overall rustic ambiance but I kept tripping over them. [​IMG]

    Robin, regarding the scarves, how warm are they? From the pics they don't look too thick and seem more a transition scarf than for colder weather. Also, are they fairly long or about standard length?

    Probably more of a transition scarf (they're cotton), so good for fall and spring. They're about 13" x 72" or so. I have seen some nice looking wool ones online from PBJ and I wonder how they compare.

    What kind of thread do PBJ jeans contain? (cotton, poly?)

    Is going through Rakuten worth the trouble for PBJs, or is it best to just get it from a US retailer?[​IMG]

    I got mine from a U.S. retailer and love them. I think there should be some pics of them in the post pics of your denim thread.

    Those scarves are unbelievable, by the way.

    If BiG or Atsui has what you want in stock I'd get it from them. Those are the only 2 US stores that I know that stocks them.

    Before I pull the trigger on a pair, how would you guys rate the durability of these jeans?

    I'm having a hard time figuring out sizing charts for PBJ for XX-006. Here's BiG's:


    [​IMG]

    Now from PBJ's website:

    [​IMG]

    waist, front rise, back rise, thigh, inseam, knee, leg opening is the order going down.

    So, for a size 36 BiG says it will shrink down from a 39 to 36. But PBJ just mentions 37 inches (94.5=37).

    What exactly is PBJ listing: what it measures raw (so it will shrink down one inch from 36 to 37), what it will measure down from 39 (39 to 37), or are they listing a one wash (even though it's listed as shrink-to-fit)?

    Does anyone know of any retailers that still have that indigo scarf in stock? I don't want to wait another 1-2 months for another run.

    I believe PBJ sell their jeans one wash to everyone but BiG, because folks in the US enjoy putting cardboard rigid pants in their bathtub so they can put pictures of the "process" on the internet.
    So I assume their measurements are for one wash.

    SharpService is offering proxy services for this from PBJ @ 30% off retail - think they come to about $50 a piece with the discount.
