No love for Somet lately? So sad...here's a few fit pics of my 018 I just picked up.

Sized down to a 30, I'm a true waist 32...definitely tight but I'm diggin em haha. Gonna hem them a couple inches though.

Thanks to Gordon at BIG for being such an all-star to deal with.

I've been enjoying this forum for a while, but here's my first bit to share:

Somet 030's. About 10 months, 3 soaks. Picked up at BiG and mending help from Denim Therapy. Giving these a break while I work on my SG2109's this winter...

Somet is the most underrated denim and fit out there, it's like if Dior homme made quality denim but even better! Best kept secret

Was at BIG trying on a bunch of stuff this past weekend. Really want another pair of Somet. My thighs are too big for 008/018. :( I might go with 030 next go around. Just gotta sell these 018 with only like 5 wears!

How much stretch is possible with Somet jeans? Not how much are they likely to stretch...but how much is possible?

 

I landed on a gold mine a few years back when Context clearanced their Somet stock and I picked up the 008 and 003 for $150 each. They are both size 27. 

 

The 008 is pretty spot on for fit. The 003 is definitely tight (even for me), but button-able. 003 reminds me of the 0702s from Momotaro, which I had some success stretching out eventually...

Do you mean the 003 as spot on and the 008 as tight? I believe the 008 is the tighter fit.

anyone know what the secret buttonhole inside the waistband is for?  it's on the interior only.  a little window to see the canvassing?

 

these are 030 'writers pants.'

Somet 008 (size 27)

7 months of wear

 

Crotch repair (preventative) last week, leading to 2 hour hot soak with a little detergent in a bathtub. Enjoy!

"Basic Straight"

Got them in Tokyo ~2 years ago. Lots of washes.
 
First two pics are natural sunlight, second two are with flash.

Looking good.  So many options for blue I had to wait until I wanted some in black before trying them out.  Don't know why I waited so long, 005's are my new favorite fit.

The kicker is they were actually chainsticked at Big to my exact measurement. Big thanks to the guy who sold them to me.
