The so called slim/tapered of the Sammies were still too loose for my liking. I had them tapered further, but still too much room in the thigh. So I moved them on

Admittedly the 710's were not as slim as I was expecting, but I think you've got to bear in mind that the fit will change as the denim shrinks through washing, and softens up with wear.
You couldn't have a pair of skinnies in 19oz raw denim from the get-go, you wouldn't be able to move in them.

S003JP are the slimmest, as Delfor, had to get the taper done a touch more from around the knee to a 7.75" hem. Size 35 had a hem of nearly 8.5" once shortened Could have gone true to with a 34.
Tapered selvage side so the rise was unaffected, fit is good for me personally although the selvage has been spread which I asked to keep the top shape. Left wide on the inside its going to fade pretty shit unless I cut it back in to shape (anyone done this?). They're breaking in relatively quickly compared to the 710's and 5000 in the past.
Pair of PBJ XX013 on order via denimio which look like a slightly slimmer cut unaltered.

I'd be a 28 or 29 inch waist, so the taper might be ok for me on the 710s

My 710's are a 31 waist. The hem started at 7.75" and, after hemming to a 31" leg, the hem is still only a millimetre or two over 8".

Anyone got a pair of full counts?
And how much do ONIs stretch?

the secret denim stretches pretty easily. It's a super loose weave

Wanting to taper a pair of selvage denim from the knee down. Asked the doc a while back and he said this could only be done from the selvage side (full taper only from the inseam). Reluctant to fuck the appearance of the selvage though - any way around this?

Any decent local tailor should be able to taper jeans from the inside seam, the only issue would be that they probably won't be able to re-do the chain stitched hem so you would have to end up sending them off to someone for that. Try Son of a Stag or maybe Rivet & Hide.

Get the full inseam done with absolute minimum from the top.

Are any local tailors decent when it comes to denim though? I've yet to find one even half decent enough that I would trust with mine.Specialist job every time for me

Had thought it was odd the Dr refuses to taper from knee on the inside.
19 Nov 2015 08:35
don't think it can be done, you need to replace the seam unless they can double needle stitch?
19 Nov 2015 09:19
Looks like they do exactly the same as the doc with the inside seam.

Yes the Colab. The geisha denim is meant to be great.
