Looks like these Black n’ Blue indigo canvas jeans were released in late 2011 @chicote

Thanks for finding that Maynard! They’re a bit slim for me but i hope they go to someone who will finally wear them :rolleyes:

Gosh, I wish Roy would make shirts again. I’d throw all my money at him. I’ll be patiently waiting...and praying :rolleyes:

I did end up winning the BnB’s for the minimum bid. More than I wanted to spend but again, a grail pair for me(seems unlikely I’d ever find a unworn pair in my size again). I’ll post pics upon arrival.

@chicote, I am so envious. I have been watching out for a large for a long time now. But, I am also happy it went to a forum member. Keep us updated on how it evolves.

Speaking of the BNB1’s, I recently picked up a lightly worn pair off Grailed (size 31), however I unfortunately misjudged my pandemic pants sizing and they are too small and will be back up for sale. It does look like the previous owner has added a lining to the rear pockets. The fabric is pretty cool though, would love to see it after some heavy wear.

I don’t think the previous owner added the back pocket lining, I’m pretty sure that’s how Roy made them.

Thanks @Maynard Friedman I couldn’t see any stitching on the rear pocket in the original SE pictures, but now that I zoom in I can see it.

I feel like he has been doing lined pockets for a while. I have the first Ducks and they are lined to the same point too. The OG Ducks are before this release for sure.

Haven’t taken the RTs off - one machine wash hang dry one soak.

Nice fit. Still keeping my eyes peeled for a size 36. :ph34r:

@goodrain Picked them up from someone on the IH forum who didn't give a whole lot of info, but they seem to be a sample pair from just before second round of Big Bro jeans, the BB1002, which probably makes them one of the first pairs ever to use the Black Seed denim (!!)

The cut, fabric (incl. pocket bags & linings), and patch seem to be the same as the BB1002, but the rear pockets are the same as on any other Test Lots (mid-century Levi's shape & styling w/ hidden rivets) and the rivets are standard punch-through rather than the two-prong saucers that went on both production runs of Big Bro jeans

Really looking forward to these—the rise is gonna take some getting used to, but I figure if anyone can make a low-rise cut work it's bound to be Roy, so tomorrow morning it'll be into the washer with 'em

More photos forthcoming eventually

@julian-wolf ok I thought they looked like my BB1002s but didn't understand the the Lot 00 part. It looks like maybe a different type of (better) leather was used for the patch as well. Nice pickup!

They are slimmer than the Test Lots though so I would say don't put them in the dryer.

@chicotethat shirt looks great on you! I don’t have any of his shirts (yet) but agree that his bottoms seem almost tailored to me. All the different cuts that I have are very flattering to my body type.

@longshanks I was eyeing that pair too, but decided they were too big and I therefore wouldn’t wear them. 
Here they are with a pair of the SE ducks.

Lookin’ good! And yes, with the interesting but awkward to access in public inner coin pocket. It’s been a long time since he’s made bottoms in something other than denim, would be cool to see something new in that vein.

I don’t think coins are the sort of dime he had in mind when adding the extra pocket…

Honeycombs on my XVUS are looking kind of wild for Cone.
