So, I'm sure we're all curious about this, but being understandably coy about it given how crazy this whole situation is: do we have a clear sense of what Inoue intends to do with the arcs for the new pairs? If he goes "cat ears," would we be looking at lemon/orange contrast stitching or something more "stealth" like what showed up on some pairs of 60s recently? 

Orange, I should have a pic tomorrow.

hello everyone!

Inoue is receiving the parcels, and yesterday he contacted me because he already wanted to start production of the new batch, butr I had to stop him because the data I'm gathering are not complete.

at this stage all of you were in touch either confirming all previous size info and adresses or changing them, I only miss info from @spunkey he doesn't get back to my emails and PMs... I don't know if he sent the jeans back or not. The guy seems to have disappeared from the internet, either that or the email adress I have for him is no longer used.

I hope he will soon surface on planet earth...

 

Will they have to ensure a full count of all the returned pairs before this can draw to a close?

 grazie mille!  The next TCB contest better have a patch with a flute-playing cat driving a 240DL in your honor!

I'd definitely buy a pair of jeans with that patch, although I would still be more partial to a patch sporting two volvos 240 trying to tear apart a cat (or at least a pair of jeans)

No tearing apart cats, please! May I suggest two strong cats tearing apart a Volvo 240? Or would that be just as cruel in your eyes, @volvo? B)

Key word was "trying" I think ;)

Hooray for not stealthy arcs!

Arcs are nice - my cat got teeth & claws, too. How about 2 smaller spikes in the lower line?

Continuing my trait for tardiness, but I have also posted mine back (through Royal Mail) last Monday. The nice lady said they would take up to two weeks. Really looking forward to receiving a new pair and getting started again.

lets hope that all will be well

^ sorry my bad, a couple guys asked via pm and have been added to the list, let me check if i can still add you.
To be honest the logistics of the whole thing were so complicated that I didn't want to add further complication to it by advertising the opportunity of joining the contest in public.

By the way dear @spunkey please reply to my messages and let me know what you want do with the jeans (exchane or return). I know you saw my pm's, you're the only person who didn't reply...please play nice.

I know people would be missing out on the cat ear back pockets but maybe they could buy a  standard pair of 20s from Inoue-- the more the merrier.

Maybe Inoue would be happy to make more jeans. I'll ask. To be honest in the last couple months I've been so busy with work that it's been hard to keep track of everything.

I'll let you know.

Also, just food for thought, we don’t have to rely solely on our Italian peasant to be the only source of communication. As far as I know Inoue speaks to people higher than peasants as well. Maybe worth shooting Inoue a DM or email if we have questions.

No worries. If it over complicates an already stressful situation, I'll sit it out. My wallet/wife would probably prefer that anyways.

But on the other hand...
