SOMET Denim

beautiful!

keep them away from wine please!

then again, they may end up with full of battle scars and end up looking even better.

hmmm.. how you intend to wear them? trash them?

I haven't deciced yet, but do i really have a choice?

I could choose to baby them and be utterly dissapointed when i get something on them, or just choose to trash them but then end up looking homeless after a few weeks.

Any superdenim addicts who can help?

I picked up some Somet straight legs. However, they seem awfully tight to me - especially in the thighs. I'm thinking of returning them (although they are nice jeans). Does anyone have any input on how much Somets stretch? Does this fit look ok? :confused:

Any thoughts much appreciated - it's my first pair of Somets.

Here are some pics.

I think that's a damn near perfect fit. I wouldn't size up any. They're sanforized so they won't shrink but they will stretch out a bit. Not sure how much in the thighs though.

Dilettante -

dont return them! they fit really well. serious.

dont worry about it being tight at the thighs they will stretch out eventually.

if you size up it maybe more comfortable at first but they will stretch and in the end become too baggy.

Is it possible to order SOMET denim directly from their website, if I'm not located in Japan? Do they ship overseas? Help would be much appreciated :)

read the beginning of this thread.

it's not impossible, but it's very difficult and expensive.

BiG carries them now, and you can also order some styles via own-magazine.com, making the efforts associated with directly ordering pointless.

but the jeans are awesome.

I'm trying to decide between Somet blacks and s5000bk's. I prefer the fit of the bk but the clean aesthetic of the Somet's. Would it be possible to size up on the Somets to get a fit similar to the bk, or would they just be baggy in all the wrong places if I sized up. What size shoulf I get to achieve a similar fit to the s5000bk in a size 33?

Holy shit... the fit on the Somet's are spot on. But damn Somet is expensive brand though.

Thanks for the input, guys.

I've been breaking them in & I'm pretty happy with them. They're still on the tight side for my taste, but any bigger & the waist wouldn't fit right. The denim really is amazing quality & I've gotten some compliments. I'll see how they wear in after a couple of months. Right now, I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who can pull off the tight jeans look.

bapelolol - I'm 5'10. The Somets are the 29 inch waist & I'm a 28 in APCs. 1 size bigger than APC seems to be pretty standard. Somets are pretty low rise, so the waist measurement is more like a hip measurement.

anyone who has been wearing their somets for a long time notice lots of stiches becoming undone? I feel like my somets are falling apart.

Sorry if this has been asked before,

but 28 (31") is the smallest size they make?

BiG is supposed to be getting in smaller sizes. I'd call or email them.

Ok cool, I think a 26-27 (so 29"-30"?) would be perfect. Might make these my next pair.

I'm thinking about getting a pair of the 14.5 ounce straight fits. I already posted this in the this or that thread with no avail; so im wondering if anyone knows the fit of those compared to 47' lvc's. I currently have those and i just want to know so i can decide on the correct size. my 47 lvc's are a 36X34 and are unfortunately to loose for me now because i lost weight.

i went to the somet store in shibuya a couple weeks ago and it is insane to find. completely unmarked from the outside. it's just a door in a back alley w/ little or no other stores on the street. the people there were super cool though and they had all of their products there. anyone in the area should check it out.

fit is going to be very different -- lower rise, no anti-fit seat, straighter, slimmer leg.

my recollection is that somet's biggest size is a 35. you can get actual measurements on their website, or read back through this thread for sizing info.

How much do these stretch? Do they stretch like APC's?
