    Ken, they look good on you. Once they break in a little more I think they'll look better.

    Yeah, these definitely have a lot of softening up to do. After they start to fall more naturally, I might end up hemming them. I hate doing that, though, because it isn't the jeans' fault that I'm short. If anything, I ought to have a tailor let out my ankles a couple inches.

    Am I the only one who feels like th dropped pockets make the rise look super high? I'm only going off the Peasant pic here, mind you, but it looks kinda off to me.

    I thought the same thing from the pictures. They look like a higher rise jean (something like 5EP LDB, sort of). Even when I first got them, I said to myself, "Self, that looks like a very long front rise." But when I put them on, they fit really well and could be slouched without looking sloppy. The dropped pockets are groin-grabbingly nice.

    Since it wasn't Ken who linked them I wasn't sure if Arethusa was correct, just double checking.

    They are these: http://peasant.mesv.org/shop/product/483
    Which isn't the same link as above, I believe. Now I owe Arethusa and Who dinner for besmirching their good name. If all goes well, maybe we'll be having breakfast, too.

    Great summary. I'm very very close to purchasing a pair of these. Any other opinions?

    I wanted to carry wings and horns but they didn't think my store was cool enough.

    yup.
    I thought being one of the best store in the U.S. carrying some of the most favored gear I would be in the running but I guess not.

    I don't care what W&H think, in my book, your store will always be cool.

    And they said the owner came to Berlin once and decided he didn't want to do any business here. So I guess my whole city isn't cool enough. I like a company with conviction[​IMG] .

    Got my pair of blacks today. They're really cool but seriously stiff. The stiffest pair of jeans I've ever touched. Feels like wearing cardboard. I should probably soak them.

    I've got them in the brownish-khaki-whatever. Very nice details, super stiff.

    I just got a pair of blacks too. I think I'm going to soak them before I wear them. They are ridiculously stiff.

    Soda Punk: Yeah, I've been wearing them every day since I got them. After the soak and a few wears they don't feel very stiff at all. They're really really nice.
