    I am about 6 months in on the 003's. They are the most incredible pair of jeans I've ever worn and to this day I've not seen another pair online, in store, anywhere, that I'd rather have in terms of styling, cut, color, details, anything. I have a big gripe because the fly has distorted, but it's getting tacked at the tailor now, and it's probably my own fault for wearing the jeans too low. So, hopefully, that gets fixed and when I get them back they'll be perfect. I honestly expect to wear these for years.

    These jeans are also the biggest secret in online denim forums. I have yet to see a worn in pair.

    Isn't that the truth. I've only seen, "hey, I just got these in, hope they stretch" photos.

    I'll probably get a pair of slim fits at some point. The sizing looks a little strange though if BIG is correct. Do you really want to size down that much?

    Somet denim is the shit! Spent an hour or so getting lost in Aoyama looking for the little hole in the wall last December, and ended up with a pair of 008s in size 28 (usually wear 30).

    yea I did.. mentioned that i usually take sz30, but had to get sz28 for the somets.

    could button them up with just a little trouble initially, and they've stretched out just abit to make it comfortable but not loose... still stiff enough to give me lines on the thighs from the weird darts! great stuff [​IMG]

    not sure about initial measurements, but the waist measures 15.5" laid flat now. do note that they're really meant to be worn at the hips (no bullshit, we're talking 8" front rise)..

    In comparison to APC sizes and sizing down: I wear a 31 in a rescue (31 ns would barely fit my legs). I tried somet straight leg at BIG and I was a 32. I tried a 32 in the slim/taper and it was too tight. Unfortunately, they didn't have a 32 in the indigo and I held off buying them. When I go back in July, I am going to get a pair, they were awesome.
