I have two questions:

1. As hemming is ok, may I request to add to my pair denimbridge arcs? (I like them)

2. Is there any limit for preorder? If it happens that a lot people would like to buy/participate - will everybody have a chance to hop a pair? Will Double Volante be able to sew all the pairs?

Thanx

Hi mate! I don't think we'll provide that service. It will be hard to keep up the schedule if people can change the details, hemming is a little easier. I will check with the boys though, to see what they think. If it's possible I would be happy to provide the service for the community.

It shouldn't be a problem, unless we get a massive landslide of orders, then some pairs will of course take a little longer to finish. But fabric-wise there's no problem.

@Bobbo how were the front pocket openings on your pair?

Pretty well accommodating, I'd say. Definitely not as horridly tight as The Flat Head for instance.

Hm, I'll check with the boys. Probably just an order confirmation. I'll get back to you.

^ Happy to have you mate!

@srudy It was just an automatic confirmation. You'll receive a new one when they're actually shipped!

@dau We won't accomodate tweaks on the pockets. Of course it doesn't stop you from doing it later on yourself. ;) No hidden rivets so it's not very difficult to re-stitch the pockets.

Hey @Bobbo

Sorry to bother you with a sizing question but would you mind posting your waist measurement now that it's stretched out a bit. Just want to be completely sure since I'm in between sizes.

I appreciate it.

Hey @ALB! My jeans are at Göteborg Manufakturs shop and has been there since the photoshoot on last thursday. I'm sure they can measure it for you. Shoot them an email to [email protected] or a dm on Instagram.

I'm torn between a 30 and a 31. The 30's measurements are perfect beside the waist which I'm worried might be a bit tight, although Bobbo did mention there is a good amount of stretch. Decisions decisions...

I’m right there in the same boat as you. I’m currently waffling between a size 34 and 35. Not so much worried about the waist as I am the half inch thigh discrepancy between the size chart and what Bobbo posted for his size 35... Worried if I go for the better waist fit with stretch the thighs will be too small on the 34.

When I'm in between sizes these days I go for the larger one, if the waist is a little big there's always a belt to solve it. Not much to do if they come up too small. Done that mistake too many times before...

Yeah, that’s definitely the way I’ve been leaning on this one...

Order placed! I also had problems with choosing size since I'm quite a small guy weight wise(64kg 181cm), but after emailing with Jonas at Gbg Manufaktur I decided to go with size 31. 

Looking forward to this!

Order placed! I made a note for my pair to be raw so I can wash them at home and have them hemmed by Kuniyoshi-san.
Very excited for these, quite the price considering these are made by one man. :D

Order placed.  When you can't decide between a 35 and 36, order both!

Look forward to seeing which fits better, as well as where my waistline is in September.

Well played John! 

Edit: Might as well spam with some more pics.

Jonas, the skinny one of us is wearing the old sample which is slimmer than the final jeans will be. Don't think I've mentioned that, but might be good to know!
