Very excited to get my pair! Reminding myself to be mindful that our friends at TCB are shipping 200+ pairs of jeans with hand-signed pocket bag numbers to people all over the world :happy:

If I can get access to the laser cutter in the next few weeks I probably will, yeah. If not, no fuss—my main priority's wearing the jeans, and I'd rather not put that off just for the sake of decoration…at least not by more than a week or two. If I do, I'll be happy to send out templates to anyone interested.

I know it was discussed earlier on in the thread (or maybe in Blunders), but does have good vectors on hand for a template?

I also got OW but I can't remember if I asked for hemming or not, and I can't find any mention of it in the order info. But, no big deal, I'm good either way I think. The last pair I got took 16 months so to have these so soon is incredible.

Rigid, hemmed at TCB cause their machine is fine tuned by the rope god himself. Just got my shipping notification, or that it will be picked up.

Yup. Rigid. No hemming. I'm a control freak.

Lucky me, tracking number was emailed on Monday and through some miracle received them at 9am today!?

I only had time to take a quick look, pocket bags are black on one side, and olive green on the other. I was able to put them on for a minute. It will be good.
