SOMET Denim

Recommended Posts

INTEREST CHECK:

suppose i'm able to order directly from SOMÉT with my credit card for cost + shipping + 10%... who would be interested? this would work out to about a 25% savings over what i paid to order initially. i wouldn't be able to do returns, so you'd need to figure your own size out, and i'd like to get maybe 4 or 5 pairs ordered total...

it would probably work like so: you paypal me a deposit of actual cost +10% to fund the purchase, then follow up with actual shipping costs once i get everything from SOMÉT and i ship them to you.

if i get enough interest expressed here, i'll confirm w/ the SOMÉT folks that they're still willing to hook me up and we'll press on...

i would have to recind my no more denim rule

ok, here are some photos of them on me. excuse the janky photoshop levels adjustment - it's dark out and this is all the time i've got. the color you see isn't accurate, but you can get a pretty good idea of the fit.

Will we get a toiletry bag?!

quite possibly(!?) my homegirl jamie is leaving at the end of the month, so i don't know if we'll still get presents, but we'll see...

updates on the wear?

they're being rotated along with the rest of my jeans, so they've only got about 3 weeks of total wear... plus, they're black denim, so i'm guessing they'll take a while to show anything major. don't worry, though -- i'm not going anywhere and neither are the SOMÉTs... you'll see more of them when it's worth the time.

price-wise, the basic straight jean is 21000jpy, the black is 23100, and the heavier model (14.5 instead of 13.8, i believe) is 24150. i'll email jamie tomorrow and find out what the deal is...

that's my plan... it's just a little more complicated since i can't walk into a store and grab them, and it involves sending my credit card info to japan. i'll update as soon as i get everything set up - hopefully next week?

from jamie at SOMET:

Regarding to the stock of each item, I've checked our stock already and

found that there are some sizes not available. Please refer to the following

data to check if the size you and your friends want still available now.

(1) we have them in 26''-35''

(2) but 34'' is out of stock.

Basic Men's Straight Jeans(13.8oz)

(1)we usually have them in 26'' to 35''

(the sizes which are out of stock will be coming soon by the end of Aug.)

Of course, some of them are very few, so if you and your friends want to

Thanks in advance!

to figure out your sizes, these measuring instructions from SOMET might help when used in concert with the size table available on their website:

black straights are 13oz.

indigo straights are 13.8oz.

indigo straights (from the powerpush section) are 14.5oz.

the cut is the same.

[btw - $240 is a little higher than you'll probably pay through me, but not too much. it's a fair price.]

because of all the fees associated with an international bank transfer (initiation fee on my end, SOMET's fee, jacked exchange rate, etc.)

for this order, they're letting me use a credit card so: no fees, no jacked rate, etc.

I'm really tempted but with BIG purchases and pending boot purchases, i'm way over my head in debt. But thanks for the hook up, i'm sure i'll regret this down the line since i don't have black denim.

so i'm measuring myself sidebone for these and am kind of confused, when you ordered, did you just pick your size from the site or did you send measurements, my sidebone measurement is 33" but almost all my jeans are a 30" waist, even the studios 103's which hang low, how low do these hang? i'm thinking i should just get a 30 and let it be, let me know what you did and i'll probably follow suit.

you can message SOMET and ask them if they will help you with size but I usually wear a 28 and i did the measurements and they came out to be a 30 but they said that i should get the 28's. The sites measurements are confusing.

poly,

i sent my measurements to somet and they recommended a 31 which was perfect. i'm a 30 in APC NS, 32 in imperial, 32 in nudie, etc.

they're fairly low rise, so they will sit lower than your SDAs, but honestly, that size chart on the website is spot-on. measure a low-ish rise pair of jeans and compare and you'll be fine. alternately, the somet folks are awesome and will recommend a size for you based on measurements.

everyone who's PMed me about ordering: i'll contact you this weekend with my paypal and we'll hopefully get the order placed next week.

jeans won't disappoint...
