    since he can fit a S5000 in 31, a 33 might work. I sold my S5000 in 32 because it was to uncomfortable and I feared the first real wash

    i'm still on board, but subject to post production results. i can't shake off my apprehensions about the pronounced hip flare. i mean, i don't mind [it] on higher rises__ i can size down. but, for mid rise, there's not enough room to play with [for my body type]__ either get the right waist & the "saggy ass"__ or compensate & just deal with the long bout of tight-waistedness :redface:

    btw, i SU1 @W34 with 33 inseam, post soak.

    i dropped by BiG this afternoon to check out the BiG811 contest jeans. they had only partial delivery & mostly smaller sizes. fortunately, there was a pair of W33 [w/c i tried on]__ raw waist measurement was 35" & [according to Gordon] it'll be 33" post wash. i ordered a SU1 [@W34], but i'm re-thinking of going TTS, instead, to compensate for the slight hip flare. the weave is not as tight as the Momos, so i can prolly keep the waistband from shrinking too much.

    following BiG's prices they are still 254 $. The normal pair costs 255$

    Japan retail is 19 740 Yen which equals 230$

    If you wanna join better ask Gordon ASAP. 9 pairs and a lot of people are intersted (as it seems)

    there's about 50 ppl on the waitlist, including me [for a W33] cuz the W34 will be too big on me. but, he said he'll be increasing the order due to the high demand. btw, the price would be about 280 retail.

    that's what I meant..you gotta be fast..but it seems you're already too late.
    damn, 66 regular contestants and 50 on the waiting list? and they only produced 75 pairs (according to beatle). He could have let them produce 150 pairs. It would have been cheaper for him (I believe) and he surely would have sold them all.
