    Hi guys! Yesterday I got OK from Kuniyoshi-san, he can hem your jeans if you want it. To sort it out, write a comment on your order at Göteborg Manufaktur of your desired post wash length and that you want Kuniyoshi-san to do it. They did stress that you should measure them like Shingo does http://denimbridge.jp/gbg as that is kow Kuniyoshi-san will do it. + Shingo says the shrinkage is still a bit unstable so the numbers will be approximate.

    Hi @Sharik Get it in the same size. One wash basically means they give the jeans a good hot machine wash to get most of the shrinkage out of the way. The raw version will simply shrink to the same measurements once you've washed it.

    Double posting ftw. Have a piece up on the jeans on my blog now if you want to learn more of the patch design and some other stuff: http://indigoveins.com/indigo-veins-collab-jeans/ + Denimhunters did one as well the other day: https://www.denimhunters.com/indigovein-jeans/

    Rivets will be the same as in the pics! A Real mashup, haha. You beat me to it @Broark Like them a lot!

    Yeah, I think that will work fine @JohnM My Ooes are a little more snug than the new collab jeans but I wouldn't advise to size down.

    @JohnM I was lazy and didn't align them like BiG does. Just buttoned them up, put them on the floor and measured them. Sadly the jeans are in Göteborg Manufakturs store now so people can see them and try them on, so I can't measure them myself. But it's easy to just send the boys a message and I'm sure they'll sort it out if you want it BiG-style!

    @maharu If I go by how much the first sample stretched (4 cm-isch) 33 could probably work, though it will put more strain on the jeans. I'd say it depends on how slim you want your jeans. @Babaron Welcome to Sufu! What a great way to kick it off! About the contest prizes, all the details are not 100 % yet, but the winner will get a pair of Denimbridge jeans and also a prize from the boys at Göteborg Manufaktur. So definitely a good haul for the winner! How long do you guys think we should run the contest? The usual 18 months? And are you guys OK to let the Japanese dudes and instagrammers in on it like with the TCB contest? I think that would be fun. Bonus denim pics:

    Hi guys! I'm waiting for an answer about the hemming and we haven't decided how to handle the one-washing yet. Of course you'll be able to change your mind later on if you forgot to mention it, Kuniyoshi-san starts sewing in August after all. Here are measurements after a hot rinse and now a 40 degree machine wash. Waist is measured flat (not aligned) and the rises using Shingos measuring method. So it shrinks a little more than the chart says. But then it stretches out. Size 35 Waist: 42 cm Thigh: 32 cm Front rise: 31 cm Back rise: 36 cm Inseam: 83,5 cm Hem: 20 cm

    Thanks for noticing @beautiful_FrEaK Yes, Shingo measures the circumference which adds about 1 inch. That's why the chart I posted a few days ago differ a little bit. Thanks @Maynard Friedman ! We will change the top button though for the final jeans. It will be a special Denim Base-branded iron top button. Sadly it's not finished yet so we don't have it on the samples.

    Depends on the pre-order! So it will be quite exclusive.

    Until June 15th. It's quite short but not much to do since we have already booked production slots quite some time ago.

    Haha, so sorry Maynard. But I'm glad you like them! No it hasn't. We've cut our margins quite a bit so the price will be 229 € for the pre-orders. Thanks for the comparison John! I'm picking up the final sample today, so after I have washed them this weekend I can do some comparisons as well.

    @volvo240thebest Yeah mate, I'm a 33 in TCB. Goes for 20's, 50's and 60's.

    @Hendsch I would go for a 30 if you want a 29 inch waist in the end. The test lot shrank a tad bit more than what the size chart said so the 34's I got ended up a little over 33 inches with max stretch.

    Sorry, forgot to answer you on this one! The first sample jeans stretched about 4 cm in the waist. Though I did take one size too small on that pair, haha.
  21. Bobbo

    @unders Yeah, they stretch quite a bit. I stretched the first sample jeans at least 4 cm.

    Quite close but with more room in the thighs.

    ^ Yeah, I'm a 35 in these just like my Ooe. When we're talking about the tapering it is pretty close to OA02 so they won't feel that tapered. The difference being ours taper more from the knee than Ooe's that starts their tapering earlier in the thighs.
