Thanks so much for the suggestion. I double checked and the message I sent to Ooe was on 1/9 and they started taking reservations on 1/7. Because I didn’t request a specific size in my message there was some confusion. Long story short, they were able to squeeze me in for a size 33!
So bummed I missed this! I literally messaged Ooe the day before they started taking reservations to see if I could pay in advance for a pair of size 33. On Jan 31st I saw their post stating that reservations has closed. I messaged to see if I could still reserve a pair and they responded I can’t. I wish I would’ve had alerts turned on this thread. I literally have the worst luck, as I’ve been waiting a year to purchase a new pair of Ooe jeans. Oh well, such is life.
