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.

Look like they’ll fit well b_F, although your Birks look a bit big!

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

After a week of wear the creases are setting in nicely, still trying to figure out the cuff situation.

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.
