    I don’t have PBJ AI, but in other makers, true AI tends to shrink less or not at all, due to a the nature of the dying process, multiple extended soaks in natural indigo. Edit to add Self Edge Disclaimer from AI-03 description: Disclaimer: These jeans are made of unsanforized denim, when washed the denim will shrink 1" in the waist, 2.5" in the length (inseam), and approximately .3" in the thigh/knee/leg opening/rise. Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1" after approximately 30 wears.

    Great write up @Broark!

    Roy.’s work is great. Roy and SE both deserve to profit from their efforts, experience, and expertise. $415 is very fair, but when compared to the offerings from other makers, $415 is very high. No need to defend the price Kiya, it can’t go well. Let it die down. Value is in the eye of the beholder, it can’t be forced.

    Thank you. I always forget to look there.

    Picked up a nice pair of RS01. They look minimally worn and washed. No roping at the hem, no cuff creases, and denim is still uniformly dark. I’ve been looking for worn in pics of other RS01, but can’t find much. Anybody got pics here? The denim itself is nice. Reminiscent of my Levi’s that I wore in 70’s, just after the starch washed out. Crazy, but this is my only pair of Cone.

    If you like the piece, and you get a time guarantee you are happy with, his quality is great. I don’t own any Ooe or Roy, so I can’t compare, but I have with both purchases been pleasantly surprised by the fit and finish.

    While his wait times got horrendous, he did also win the DWC artisanal challenge. I feel this thread belongs here, praises and criticisms equally.

    A lot of us denim freaks are looking for exactly that, style and construction of our parents and grandparents.

    $395 for delivery by 1/31/3020. If you like the shirt, with the guaranteed delivery date go for it. He is a craftsman, his craftsmanship on his heritage line is second-to-none. I’m a critic of his previous wait times, not at all of the finished product. That said, I don’t own a cowboy hat, or boots, and from his beginnings that has been his target demographic.

    Yes I did. It turned out great. I like the fabric more than my Filson. It will get a lot of wear during the wet months.

    First order - 6 months Second order - 2 years, 9 months If the wait time ever gets back to 6 months, I would order from WH Ranch again.

    Samurai Jeans

    Send them to Railcar. They can taper at the hem, or from knee to hem.
