Fit pics. Definitely a bit more tapered than I'm used to but I don't think they look bad?

Looks more tapered on you but I still think it looks good @Broark. Maybe even better with just a tiny turn up?

Thanks! I’ve been fiddling around with the cuffs, will probably make them a little smaller once the denim settles a little bit. I’ve even thought about no cuff and stacking them for a change.

^ Great success! They stretch a lot so it should turn out great.

After driving the whole day with my jeans in his truck, the delivery guy thought it would be nice to take them back to the sorting station. So now the estimated delivery day is tomorrow... 

Hopefully he really brings them to the 24h post station this time.

^ sorry to hear this b_F.  We all look forward to hearing more about the jeans when they make it to you.

Thankfully, research has shown that extra time in the delivery truck enhances vintage appeal through fade acceleration, though your mileage may vary ... ;-)

Thanks John! 

The eagle has landed. Picked them up from these convenient "DHL Packstation". Now fingers crossed they fit!

Mine also came today! Super stoked to wear them. They'll probably fit great once they're washed.

And they fit! I'm really glad. Still room for some shrinkage. Quick and dirty pre soak fit pics.

I shrunk mine up with a hot soak and then a warm machine wash and here are the pre and post wash measurements for a size 34.

Waist - 34.5 / 32.5

Front Rise - 12.5 / 12

Back Rise - 16 / 15

Thigh @ crotch - 13.75 / 13

Thigh 1” down - 13.25 / 12.5

Knee 14” down - 9.25 / 8.75

Hem - 8.25 / 7.75

Inseam - 36.75 / 34.5

No fit pics as I already packed them up to get hemmed but they fit great!

Give it a go - or stretch your feet. I think it’s best to size down with Birks.

Hello guys! 

Mine was waiting for me when I got home on thursday! Picked them up on friday and washed them to get some shrinkage out. 

Wore them the first time yesterday and they fit like a glove(in a good way)! Super happy with them.

Going to post some fit pics later on,  seem to have a problem uploading at the moment.

Thanks to @Bobbo, denbimbase and  the Göteborg Manufaktur crew for creating these!

Little update after a week of wear, creases are setting in nicely.
Had a company boat party this week, the jeans were not worn on the boat. :D

I think the smaller double cuff works, but I'm trying them out uncuffed this weekend.

They look great b_F -- perfect fit, just like I told you ;-)  Love the shoes too.

P.S.  I told him to get a size 36 and the 35 looks perfect.

A couple of days ago we visited Malmö. If someone visits Malmö I can recommend the restaurant Bastard.

      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. Here you can see how he measured them if you scroll down: http://denimbridge.jp/overseas
      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 (which you kind of can see in the pic above). Should get some nice vertical falling, going by the washed samples. 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 
      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?
