Urgh, cheers mate. They won't be ready til Monday so I'll have to go in again tomorrow and tell him. I just don't want to ask him to keep the selvedge the same and for him to go "yeah I know, I'm not an idiot", think I'd be too embarrassed to ever pick them up.

I did go in the next day and told him to keep the selvedge line the same. His reply? "yeah I know, I'm not an idiot". Got them back today, of course he's fucked them up. And I think he misheard me with the other pair of jeans, when I said I want them to be taken up he must have thought I'd asked him to turn them into denim shorts. Cry

The trousers and chinos I had tapered are bob on. One pair of jeans are far too short and the LVC selvedge ones I had done yeah, the selvedge is about three times the width it was before and the red/white selvedge lines have been replaced with big fuck off black stitching. They're a light blue pair of jeans. Laughing out loud

Too true. Just dropped a pair of APCs with a crotch blow out in at lunchtime. First time I've met him. Really, really nice bloke too. Cool

67' 505s are probably the closest you're going to get I think.

I'd say a 34" as they fit an inch small IMO

Edit: Am thinking of washed LVC, just realised you are after raws.
