So pissed. I ordered a pair of N&F Suvin Selvedge and Selvedge Duck's from classroomshop and UPS said they delivered the package and nothing ever got here. I checked 10 minutes after they claimed to have dropped them and nothing. Fucking lame.

Got my UB206's and UB207's today. The 207's are darker beige than I thought they'd be but they're still a good color that I'll wear a lot, also glad I went one size up on them (34 instead of 33). The 206's were also a little darker but still look great. I sized one down (32 instead of 33) on them and shouldn't have, they're a bit tight. I had them hemmed before shipping so I'm just going to have to wear them till they stretch some (or I loose a few pounds, lol).

Just ordered some UB206's and UB207's from blueowl. Sized up the 206 and down on the 207s. Turns out the sizes vary by style, thankfully Jay caught it and let me know so I didn't end up with a pair too big and too small.  On another note, Last week I wore my heavyweight UB221's through the security scanner at both SFO and MEM and both times they couldn't see through them very well and had to pat me down. That's some thick denim if it blocks a little radiation!

[Quote]Should have sized up a pair of Skinnies - the inseam is about an inch and a half longer on average.

What I want to know is where the tapered chinos are. I really want a pair of beige. I heard they were going into production in early December but haven't seen them yet.

[Quote]I put them in the oven damp. Sounds crazy but after trying everything with no luck, and having had them hemmed and no way to return, I decided to experiment. The extreme heat - hotter than they'd get in the dryer on high, fixed the smell 100%. They also shrank a little in the process, despite being sanforized.

[Quote]The pair I have reeked of sulfur. It took awhile but I got the smell out and wear them a lot. They haven't faded much at all, still look a lot like when I bought them over a year ago.

[Quote]The denim is dark indigo, no purple to it. Pretty much the same color as the 14.5oz but the weave looks better. The diagonal pattern to the twill seems more defined. So far they're breaking in well and should produce some great fades. I'll try to have someone shoot them outside in natural light so you can see better.

[Quote]With tapered I go TTS. They start out a little tight but loosen up over a few wears.

Pick up some Denim & Canvas Waterproofing Wax and do your own, any color you want.

5'6" - normally wear 30" inseam but couldn't get the heavyweights 34.5" hemmed, so cuffed and stacked 'em.

[Quote]Both Blue Owl & Rue and State carry them and are sold out. Blue Owl is doing preorders for their next batch that will ship in January. Not sure where else is carrying them.  My 221s get here today. I'll wear them tomorrow and post my impressions and some pics.

[Quote]Yhea. All the unbrandeds are sanforized.

Since I'm short I was going to get the 21oz unbranded hemmed when I ordered from blueowl but after they broke a few needles on a pair I don't think they'll be offering the chain stitching service on them. I'm just going to have to cuff and stack them which isn't that big of a deal.
