i have a natural waist of 26, about 28 above the ass crack, 115 pounds / 5`7

i'm a 28 too, and a 26 fit me really well

i'm 115 pounds and 5'5

haha makes no difference to me.. i gave it a lot of thoughts.. and in the end, i still decided to pull the trigger.. the unbleached weft is simply a feature that i can't resist... they will fade with beauty....

i thought about getting a pair of somets as well, but decided against because of the super low rise. but i wrote a email to somet whether it is possible to order from them directly. (before i decided against them).

just got the reply. they are super nice and really trying to help you...

just thought i would post the mail as it may be interesting for some of you:

"Hello,

My name is Mami Akasaka. Nice to meet you.

I’m sorry for this late reply.

Thanks for your order by email.

The first, we recommend you to measure your size correctly because if you

want to change the size (although it is possible),

I have to let you pay a postage, so the best way is to find the correct size

in the beginning.

We are willing to help you with the matter.

Please refer to the attachment you will find how to measure your size

correctly.

Could you please measure your size according to the way in the attachment?

And, We can ship to (add your country), so please tell me more details about your

address.

By the way, the payment for your first shopping should be overseas transfer,

but form your second shopping, you may use your credit card,

Because credit card service center says that it is a little risky if there

is no deal before between any overseas customers and us,

I’m sorry that you have to do the transfer from bank at the first time.

I’m looking forward to your reply. If you have any questions, please tell me

any time as you like.

Best regards,

SOMET staff

Mami Akasaka"

I can post the measurement guide which they sent me as well...just let me know if you want...

this thread isn't even that long... read it ;) and don't bother trying to reinvent the wheel.

also, fwiw, at least on the 003 and 005, the rise is not prohibitively low.

somets fade EXTREMELY slowly, from what I've seen...

Amen. I will finally be posting some pics in a few days...long awaited and fronted on...my straights are approaching at around 6.5 months now...I've decided to try to go for 7 (for a 2nd month wash, after washing monthly).

They are just now starting to show some "whiskers" and shit around the knees (the most prominent)...plus combs (though I don't know how faded they are).

Definitely not easily broken in, but it's been a fun ride thusfar. The indigo is STUCK to these shits.

ok, just looked at it again and it is basically just a guide to measuring your body:

haha alright you caught me...I admit I didn't do any research yet. But still, it'd be nice to get an official guide with all the measurements. Ok nevermind scratch that, they have it on BiG....

Just got the somet slim in size 30 today.... all i can say is the fit is fucking awesome..... i was choosing between DH 19cm MIJ and this... and good thing i made the right choice.

The fabric is stiff and.. a little slubby.. very nice to look at.. the weft is unbleached, have a dirty tone to it... this can only means a beautiful vintage fade on the jeans..

Construction wise... for me personally, i will rate it above my skull..... excellent stuff by Somet! Just not sure what the knee darts do.... but they are pretty interesting....

The hardware like the gold rivets and white leather patch are pretty impressive too...

The rise is actually not that hard to live with... its fine for me...

somet2.jpg

Beautiful "dirty" weft... (the pic don't really shows the true color)... this is going to make the jeans age beautifully....

somet4.jpg

It says on the tag about special dye being used on Somet jeans.... anyone have any idea??

All in all... if you are procastinating...... time to take action.....

That's a good looking fit man. It looks like the jeans were really designed for you, nothing's too tight or stretched out.

Thanks man! This is really a solid pair of jeans that i am going to spend a lot of my time with....

I just got back from the Big Apple today

and I picked up a pair of sz 27 008s

I would normally fit 26 or 25, but none were there

so I guess I sized up big time

I am unsure if I like how they fit so let me know what you guys think!

The thighs look mad loose, but below the knee it looks fine. What are your dimensions? I was thinking about pulling the trigger on a 27, but it looks like a 26 would be a much better fit for my skinny ass.

those look pretty big. i'm about the same height/ weight as you and i tried on a pair of 27's like a month and a half ago or something and they felt way too big on me. that cut is supposed to be a little more form fitting throughout the entire leg. i ended up getting the 003's in a 26. the waist was a tad bit tight for the first 2-3 days. now i've got about a finger-width gap after they stretched and they sit perfect.

Shoot Gordon an e-mail. He's always been very friendly with answering my questions.
Did that and received a timely response from Gordon. They will restock eventually.

BiG just restocked size 26 008s ... too bad I arleady bought SEXFH05s. Maybe I won't like these after the soak, and I'll end up getting those instead haha.

how do you guys cope with the low rise on those 26s

I bet if you sized up one it would help a lot. They look very tight at the moment. If you are going for that fit though, by all means keep them.

Does anybody have any pics of faded somets? Never seen any. The denim almost feels coated so i was wondering how they fade.
