    Perhaps Mr.ToJ can be kind to refund those risk fees once the safe delivery is confirmed? :devil:

    I am content with the domestic hand delivery discount option :embar:

    there is no risk, it's called labor.

    Alright, preliminary size chart, take a look at the size that reflects your size, and don't worry about anybody else's size, and chime in with your opinion for the next day or two as we settle on the final size chart. The WAIST across reflects the waistband laid flat, actual, and should be the same as your stretched out jeans or something you'd wear at your hips, not your actual waist on body. These ride lower than that.

    Rise front and back is all the way from thw top of the waistband to the X seam at the crotch;
    Thigh is straight across, all fabric that can be measured, is; (the back panels are slightly larger than the front to accomodate your butt there)
    knee is straight across;
    hem is straight across;

    Pants look great, I'm glad they're out now, too. Assuming everything works out I'm going to need some bis-cas stuff for internships this summer.

    The size 29 is pretty close in measurements to my size 26 new standards except for the back rise and leg opening. That's something I think I can be happy with. Because I'm too blind, can I ask what the buttons do, they don't seem to be holding anything together from that image?

    size 32 - 33 look good to me.

    I wear size.29 (APCs) - 31 (vanity size) and my waist always measures about 16 - 16.5"

    And these pants are suppose to sit higher than where people would prefer their denim, but lower than actual MC trousers, correct? So for me, right at or a little above my hip bone rather than all the way on my waist.

    correct, higher than low-rise/sagged jeans but much below MC trousers - but not above the hip bone, especially not if you're talking hip bones at the sides. They should ride below those points stil, maybe by an inch or so. keep in mind there's only about 10" or so of rise between the crotch seam and the top of the waistband, so not particularly high rise with these.

    the buttons are just a decoration of sorts, they are on two floating tabs that give the impression of sidetabs. The elastic is in the back center panel and not visible from the outside, and the front panels are clean.

    after reading the measurements, seeing updated fit photos and "reconfirming" the fit and where exactly the pants sit, i have realized i've been wearing my uniqlo / +J trousers too high, for 4+ months now.

    :fu:

    the rise is even smaller than what you are putting out and i've been pulling them up around my true waist. damnit i have been sitting in discomfort for so long. the good news is that i now know i need to get them all hemmed some more, and my gut will not be in pain after lunches.

    i learn something again from the older and wiser members

    :worship2:

    :eek:

    and everyone stealing my idea!! jk

    :lol:

    but for all those who have been saying leather + trousers
    this, but decked out in ToJ: toj leather, toj ocbd, toj knit, toj trousers, toj shoes?

    :devil: :nodding: :slayer:
