    Congrats, @Broark! Another vote for a suit—something navy or charcoal that you can wear to other formal events in the future. Put This On has good advice on this.

    I am. The fit is similar to my indigo S40s, like @srudy mentioned. If it's helpful, I have roughly 20.5-21" thighs and the jeans fit nicely in the thigh. Not baggy/loose but certainly not tight.

    Insane! If it's any consolation, the S&S email newsletter did mention more Ooe to come We've got more Ooe coming down the pipeline as well, with several new styles planned for release next year. So, if you do miss out on these, don't fret, pre-orders will be launching soon, and we're really excited to share what Ooe have planned with you all.

    No more new jeans for me for a while

    My non-TCB jeans are all too loose on me because I mis-sized and lost some weight, but I'd say my "correct" size is 31. The S40's have a very high rise, which throws off the waist measurement. For example, my true waist is 31" or 78.7cm, measured right above the navel. I went TTS with a size 31 in the indigo S40's and sized up to a 32 in the black S40's. Both fit tight in the waist after a wash, but stretch out just right with wear, despite having a measured 29.1" or 74cm waist (before stretch). I've found I usually take a smaller waist measurement in high-rise pants because they sit on my waist, rather than on my hips.

    Got the black S40's today and took some detail shots before throwing them in the wash. Excited about these.
  7. Sizing on the S40's is tricky because they have a very high rise and fit slim through the hips. I have a 31" waist and wear a 31 in the indigo S40's. The fit works for my build so the waist is just right, if not a little snug after a wash. I wear them without a belt. For the black S40's, I went by TCB's (one washed) measurements and recommendation and sized up to a 32.
  8. Bears has pretty good stock of the black S40s: https://bears-tokyo.myshopify.com/products/tcb-jeans-s40s-jeans-black-black-40s-black-denim-straight?variant=39732026376251. I have a pair on the way myself.
  9. What measurements are you looking for? I spent (too much) time looking for denim westerns some months back and landed on a MF Appaloosa, but those run rather small.

    Definitely hoping to pick up a pair of the S&S NYC jeans, depending on the fit. I wasn't able to make out the patch on their latest post. Maybe strategic?

    I have a pair on the way in the coming weeks. I'll follow up with sizing notes when I have them.

    Drinkwater's Cambridge is the only authorized repair store for Paraboot in the US, so they know their stuff if you have questions about sizing or want to special order a size/style they don't have in stock. Totem Brand Co in Philadelphia also carries Paraboot. If you know your size, you might be able to save a few bucks by ordering from a European retailer.
  15. Mister Freedom Lot 64 or Warehouse 1001? The measurements are similar, so any comments on fit or thoughts on the two would be helpful!
