    SOMET Denim

    these are my Somet 005 black jeans size 30 that I got on sale 60% off at BIG... I just mailed them off for a taper and hem, I want them to be like a slim straight fit that stacks on the top of my boots instead of draping over the boots towards the floor. so I measured some other jeans that stack just like I want. hopefully they will turn into my favorite black jeans when they come back

    I looked all over and now this is my Somet collection 008 (blue) in 3 sizes (27 faded, 28 faded, and 29 new). 28 fits the best and the other 2 are my skinny and fat jeans 005 (black) in size 30 which feels really close to the size 28 or 29 008 in the hips and upper thigh, just with a higher rise. from mid-thigh down it's wayyyy too big for me though so I'm going to get these tapered and hemmed, and then they'll be perfect. I might want to buy: 018 in size 28 or 29 with 34" or longer inseam. for sale because I didn't check the measurements carefully enough: brand-new Somet 003 in size 27 with tags. Can't even get it over my thighs and hips. I feel like 008/018 is roomier in the upper thigh and hips, and 003/005 is roomier from the knee down. But upper thigh and hip is where I need room, so whoops. I also ended up with an almost-new Flat Head Balder in size 31 that fits me perfectly, apparently those shrank so much in the first soak that the previous owner couldn't keep fading them, but they're perfect for me ...couldn't resist that while I was looking. I buy too many jeans geez

    I actually have momotaro 8005sp in my closet (thighs are slightly bigger compared to 7005sp) ...I don't wear them much because they didn't stretch during break-in as much as i thought they would, but yeah proportionally they are nice for me and would probably work if I could find those in a size 29 or 30.

    the jeans I love the most have these measurements after they're done stretching or shrinking (measured like Blue in Green measures): 7.5 - 8" front rise, 11.5 - 12" back rise, 32.5 - 33" waistband, 11 - 11.5" upper thigh (thigh measurement is usually the holdup if jeans don't fit me, I'm a lot more comfortable with the upper end of that range and can't go below 11" at all) inseam minimum 31" if it's a skinny fit that fits like leggings, 32-36" inseam if it is a slim straight or "cigarette" fit that stacks on top of my shoes even if I'm wearing high heeled boots (like the 008 size 27 does in the picture above), 34-35" inseam if the leg opening is wide enough to cover a high heeled boot and fall down to the floor ...and I always prefer inseams longer than these just in case it has any shrinkage left in it when I wash it Somet 008 matches those measurements so nicely. and so does Samurai Geisha. and Baldwin Ten Skinny. Flathead Balder maybe...I keep an eye out for that on ebay but usually I only find it with inseam too short. Inseam too short, thighs too small, or rise way too high in the size that fits my thighs, are usually the issues when I try to look for jeans. and I've had really bad luck sizing up then getting the waist taken in (got at least 1 pair of jeans ruined that way, they came back looking completely asymmetrical) so I don't do that any more.

    I saw that but that inseam is going to be too short for me after it shrinks in the first wash plus the 003 and 008 measurements aren't the same and the 008 fits me like it was made for me....I wouldn't expect the same if the measurements are different.

    if anyone wants to sell me used or new somet 008 or somet 018 in tag size 27, 28, or 29, please pm me. I want to stock up because it's so hard to find jeans that fit me this good. I love how much freedom of movement I have in these but it still looks slim. I love actually having room for my thighs...and having room in the waist too without feeling them creep lower and lower (which is probably because they have enough room in the thighs). who knew the best women's jeans on the planet would actually be men's jeans!! (and when I ask stuff like this I usually get PMs about other brands or other cuts....the answer would be no thanks, I'm only interested in somet 008 and somet 018)

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    I wore my previous Taos sneakers to shreds and just got this new pair today to replace them...I love them to bits. they are my work shoes and I'm on my feet all day at work I think what I like about these visually is the laces go so close to the toe it makes my feet look cuter. and the color looks good with indigo stains. and they're so comfortable with good arch support.

    I think you're right they did start to feel too big after about a week of wear. But they can be my fat jeans. I seem to change size a lot during a normal month because of water retention and whatnot. and there are some days when I am not able to fit into any of the other jeans that I currently own, except I can fit into these. BIG had them on sale and 29 was the smallest they had. but that used size 27 that I got from Poshmark fits soooo good, so that's the size I'm keeping an eye out for if I buy another pair of 008, or maybe the black 018 (which I really want now that I know how this fits on me!!) a couple of days ago I put them a hot water gentle cycle in the washing machine without detergent. They shrank a little but they still feel like they're going to be my fat jeans.

    cross post from Somet thread, this is a used & faded size 27 Somet 008 that I got from poshmark, the new ones above are also Somet 008 but size 29 I love both so much!! they fit so perfectly.

    this is a used and faded pair of Somet 008 size 27 that I just got from Poshmark (the slouchier brand-new ones above are size 29). I love them so much. They fit better than any of my other jeans and they're so soft. I did a temporary crotch repair. It would be funny if someone here faded these for me! I think I am going to soak those size 29 new ones in hopes of shrinking them just a little....if the inseam is the only place where I get any shrinkage it would still make them a little more likeable.

    I want to find a size 28 or 29 Flathead Balder...if anyone is selling that let me know. I still have size 27 Flathead Balder jeans from ebay and they're probably my favorite jeans on the days when I fit into them but they were always borderline too tight. This is Somet 008 size 29 which I found in a measurement search tool, technically a men's jean but I love it and it has a low front rise, low back rise,and waist/thigh ratio similar to Flathead Balder...it's satisfying my urge to wear something that isn't skin tight and I love how it stacks over boots

    Somet 008 on a female...it came up in the heddels measurement search tool that these have the same proportions as my favorite discontinued Flathead Balder jeans that are slightly too small for me, and BIG had them on sale so I couldn't resist. I'm unsure if I should soak them though because I really like the fit exactly how it is in the hips and thighs and waist....they're just a little long, but heels will fix that. What do you think?
