Kind of amazed at how soft and comfortable these are already. I have pretty much only been wearing them around the house after work and a bit on the weekend and they are already quite cozy.

FWIW, IMO, nothing wrong with any of the fits on here that I've seen. Keep in mind these probably have more shrink in them yet, and speaking for myself personally, looser is always better than too tight especially when it comes to comfort! With more wear they'll also soften up in the seat etc. so no worries there either

yes, the same thing happened to me with my Resolutes and they quickly became my favorites. My taste is changing to this type of fit as opposed to a shorter rise and a greater taper. I am looking forward to the next phase in the evolution when they soften and drape better.

I agree, everyone's fits look very good. I am surprised at how varied they are, these jeans are obviously very versatile. Curious to know how much everyone sized up, I only sized up 1 from what I would normally go for. 

 

Also!   lsaylor, those look great, like the way those fit you a lot.

My waist is about 35" (34" on a good day) and I went with 36.  This was the right choice but 35 would have been fine too since this denim will likely stretch where it needs to.

 

I was a little surprised when I saw 37 on the tagged inseam since the target was 34" after wash, but maybe Ooe plans on 3" of shrinkage.  What are you all seeing? ... or maybe it's too soon to tell.

I didn't measure pre, but I had stock ~36 or 36.5 inseam and am now at 34" after washing 60C hot 3 times.

Waist 3rd time was exactly 33 on a sz 35.

Could have probably gone with my original sz 34 but I have now lost 20lbs and will probably lose 10 more in the next 12 months due to marathon training.. Would have been pretty hard to fit had I not lost that weight. Really like how they fit though, if jeans are too tight they give me back pain and heartburn issues (lol)

I asked for a 33 inseam and my pair says 36 so I think that they expect 3" of shrinkage. I haven't really measured it but pretty sure my pair shrank somewhere in that vicinity.

My pair have cleared the swedish customs and is on its way to me now! If I'm lucky I will have them tomorrow!:) I plan to wash them two times in hot water before I wear them!

Edit 15/4:

I hate the swedish postal service. They haven't even shipped them to me yet. Just cleared the customs. They have do much to do they say..

I couldn't agree more, especially since I've never had the chance to own any OY

Surprised at how fast these are crocking in some areas, particularly the back pocket where I put my cellphone. Took a bunch of photos around town today (denim no vis) but will try to get something up here on sufu. Threw the jeans in the wash in the meantime (3rd wash).

^re: dryer creases, I am getting it a slight amount on this pair (not usually an issue for me), especially evident when inside out but I'm honestly not worried about it!

      Time to officially kick off the contest now that the jeans have reached at least some of you!
      Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy. Should get some nice vertical falling. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project.
      If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 
      You can read more about the jeans on my blog indigoveins.com and also a piece on the guys behind the jeans.
      The contest length: The contest will run until January 31th. After that you will all have until February 28th to post the final pics.
      The prizes: The winner will win a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and the runner-up gets a €200 voucher from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      The jury: A jury of 5 will judge the contest winner: Shingo-san, Kuniyoshi-san, Jonas and Olof that runs Gbg Mfg and myself.

      Hey guys, I have some very exciting news to share. Soon I will release a collaboration I’ve done with my good friends at http://www.goteborgmanufaktur.se and Shingo-san of Denimbridge, sewn by the one man army Kuniyoshi-san of Double Volante in their new project Denim Base. 14 oz greatness made in Japan with a really nice vintage vibe to the fabric and a lovely olive herringbone fabric for the pocketbags. 
      Measurements:
      Size W26 W27 W28 W29 W30 W31 W32 W33 W34 W35 W36 W38 W40 Waist/inch 25 26 27 28 29 29.9 30.9 31.9 32.9 33.8 34.4 36.4 38.4 Front rise/inch 10.6 10.8 11 11.2 11.4 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.4 12.6 13 13.4 Back rise/inch 12.6 12.8 13 13.2 13.4 13.6 13.8 14 14.2 14.4 14.6 15 15.4 Thigh/inch 11.1 11.3 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.5 12.8 13 13.2 13.5 14 14.4 Knee/inch 7.5 7.6 7.8 8 8.1 8.3 8.4 8.6 8.7 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.2 Leg opening/inch 6.9 7 7.1 7.2 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.8 7.9 8 8 8 Inseam/inch 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 Shingo measures the front and back rise a little differently which gives different measurements from the BiG-method.

      Since there's been talk about doing a Denimbridge contest for a few years now I was thinking now might be a good time with a special release. The jeans will be made in August so a contest could be possible to start late September.
      The prize: The winner will win two prizes: a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and also a prize from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      Pre-order: The pre-order is running until June 15th via https://goteborgmanufaktur.se/brands/goteborg-manufaktur/goteborg-manufaktur-x-indigo-veins-x-denimbase-gbg001-jeans-pr.html
      I'll have more info to share in the next couple of days and will post more details about the jeans. But for now, what do you guys say, shall we put up a contest?

      And here we are everyone! It's been an amazing ride with this pair of jeans, and I'm sure you've all enjoyed yours as well. But unfortunately as all good things must, we are now at the end of the contest.
      The Rules: The poll will remain open until October 25th, 2017, at which point Neil and Jeremy at Standard & Strange will choose the winning pair out of the top three highest voted. That said, the earlier you post your pair, the higher the chances of you getting more votes! 
      The Prize: Our lucky winner will receive a brand new pair of Ooe jeans! The details of the pair are not yet public, however, it will be an OA01 cut exclusive to S&S.

      I want to thank everyone again for their participation and camaraderie during this contest. I'm excited to see how they all turned out after this past year and a half of wear, in which we've all undoubtedly become connected with these jeans and experienced so much. Thank you so much to Ryo and Hiro for willing to do such contests and limited runs for jeans we couldn't get otherwise; Thank you to Standard & Strange for sponsoring the contest and supporting the denim community with overall awesomeness; and Thank you all for your participation and viewership of this thread, which helps the denim community make the world a little bit more of an interesting place!

      Note: Please keep this thread devoid of comments until after polling ends as we'll want to focus only on pictures from the entrants!
