    I've been thinking about that site for a very long time (about a year now). Always wanted to get some custom cut jeans to my specs for a good price, but always been too scared about it not coming out right.

    Someone should def try it and let us know :p

    What also makes me nervous is the measuring process. It just seems so wrong...

    Perhaps measuring for denim is slightly different than measuring for a pair of pants?

    Seems like jeans are on the few things that made to measure wouldn't be superior, most of the time when I buy jeans they don't fit and after a few weeks they feel like they were made for me.

    I'm fine with giving them a rise, thigh, and inseam (although they want outseam). What bothers me is just the waist measuring process and having to worry if it will come out right. If they are so experienced in making jeans/pants I believe they should just have their version of tag sizes for jeans, from 28 to whatever (44 I think they go up to?). I don't understand why that is so hard for them and they require a measurement.

    If you read the red blurb, there is a part that says "also the true measured waist size should not be more than 37" for the selvedge jeans. But using their process of waist measuring I got a 35.5 while I was wearing my size 29 Nudies. So are they trying to tell me that only size 29, 30, and maybe 31 can wear their custom made selvedge jeans? That just does NOT seem right. I don't know if I'm not measuring properly but according to their picture/description I don't see how I couldn't be.

    Something just doesn't seem right.

    most people wear jeans on the hips, so your true waist size isnt really going to be the same as where u wear your jeans

    i think :o

    I know this. On the site it says to measure at the height where you wear your jeans. This is what I did, at the hips/sagged.

    Point still stands. My jeans are all 29 or 30 tagged size, and that came out to a 35.5 "true waist measurement." I find it hard to believe that they can only cater to someone up to a ~31 tagged size. Something just doesn't seem right.

    It also says that you measure and they will make the proper adjustments.

    So maybe they add an inch or so to the waist because its common practice.

    Who knows, right?

    It would be interesting to find out..which is why I posted it. Someone be a guinea pig!

    Yes it says they can make proper adjustments, but that was under the rise information (front/back) wasn't it?

    I'm just saying the method they have you measure seems to be off. They clearly state that with the selvedge technique they can't go over a 37" true waist measurement, by their technique. Seems like that would exclude a whole lot of people :dunno:

    Yeah, did you see the option where you have to pay more if your waist is larger? With that option would it open it up to a lot more people?

    edit - its the "Add In" Drop-Down box near the bottom of the page.

    That's the option for EVERY jean, its a standardized drop box of add-ins. It is not specific to the selvedge, just the standard thing they put in there for every custom made jean on their site.

    Read the text, it pretty much sums it up:



    It spells it out pretty simply...

    fucking serious? you'll get what you pay for. having personally put together many pairs of jeans, not that i'm any sort of pro but its more than just getting measurements.
