SOMET Denim

Recommended Posts

I looked all over and now this is my Somet collection :)

008 (blue) in 3 sizes (27 faded, 28 faded, and 29 new).  28 fits the best and the other 2 are my skinny and fat jeans 

005 (black) in size 30 which feels really close to the size 28 or 29 008 in the hips and upper thigh, just with a higher rise.  from mid-thigh down it's wayyyy too big for me though so I'm going to get these tapered and hemmed, and then they'll be perfect.  

I might want to buy: 018 in size 28 or 29 with 34" or longer inseam.  

for sale because I didn't check the measurements carefully enough: brand-new Somet 003 in size 27 with tags. Can't even get it over my thighs and hips.  I feel like 008/018 is roomier in the upper thigh and hips, and 003/005 is roomier from the knee down. But upper thigh and hip is where I need room, so whoops.

 

I also ended up with an almost-new Flat Head Balder in size 31 that fits me perfectly, apparently those shrank so much in the first soak that the previous owner couldn't keep fading them, but they're perfect for me ...couldn't resist that while I was looking.

these are my Somet 005 black jeans size 30 that I got on sale 60% off at BIG... I just mailed them off for a taper and hem, I want them to be like a slim straight fit that stacks on the top of my boots instead of draping over the boots towards the floor. so I measured some other jeans that stack just like I want. hopefully they will turn into my favorite black jeans when they come back

Are there any alternatives to Somet for their low-rise fits? I got myself a pair of their black low-rise straights a few months ago and that low-rise top block fits like an absolute dream. I wouldn't mind a pair with more of a taper and no thigh darts.

Unfortunately there don't seem to be many other producers that make quality raw denim jeans with that low a rise. Somet themselves seem difficult to find outside of Blue in Green, which is where I got my previous pair. BiG themselves are sold out of most sizes and models as well.

So...where's a good place to buy Somet jeans (online or brick and mortar stores) these days? Blue in Green used to have a bunch, but they've sold out of most models at this time. The official Somet webshop has some interesting models, but I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere, not even on Rakuten.

"Basic Straight"
(I guess these are the 005 003?)
Got them in Tokyo ~2 years ago. Lots of washes.
 
First two pics are natural sunlight, second two are with flash.

 

Year 6, +/-, many washes, many blowouts.
