    yeah, I guess you are right. But it´s good to know it works from the knees down, thanks for the information! And you definitely said to the tailor 16,5 cm right?

    I wanna bring mine to the tailor as fast as possible and will post the results here.

    Hmm perhaps it would be, I was just trying to picture that in my head. But then again if you were to do that, in the end you'd only be taking about 1cm off each seam, which seems more trouble than it'd be worth. Tapering that from the knee down would require accuracy in the millimeters, probably a pain in the ass to attempt.

    TheRedeemer - If you like them, I'd bring them to your tailor and give it a shot. Just make sure your tailor sticks with working just one of the seams so you don't loose the twisting effect. Thought I'd include a pic of what mine looks like.. the alteration is hardly noticeable.
    thanks for the pic, Snake!

    I was also thinking about tapering and was confused about the 4 seams... So, your tailor did taper only 1 seam? I thought, if tapering all 4, the twisting would be better.... ?!?

    I also thought about bringing mine to the tailor but am not sure if the twisting still gonna work if I let them taper from the knees below.

    Seems there are two versions of how to wear this jeans. Some just tuck them into the boots and the others twist them until they are really tight around the calves and ankles to tuck them into the boots and stop them from untwisting.

    I prefer the second method but doubt it´ll work that fine with less fabric

    In general I also prefer the wax from the AW09 to the SS10...

    Meh, a few nice ones but that's about it.

    I really don't think the issue of the wax matters unless you wear the jeans only once a week or so during cool evenings... it won't last very long with repeated use.

    I'd imagine it's the same as any taper...open seam, remove a certain amount, close seam.

    TheRedeemer - note that the waxed/distressed treatment on the f/w 09 jeans is more intense than on the s/s 10. in my opinion (i have both) a lot more intense.

    so, as BBSCCP says, you might just want to visit a tailor.

    In case it comes to a sale someday I might be interested in those...

    I like:
    - Cotton Silk Satin (297shm9)
    - Cotton Jersey (297cum7)

    But I wonder if anybody tried them on and can comment on how wearable they are (e.g. with the length)? Also, are they sheer (I could image the first being sheer due to the silk...)?

    And with always - sizing... I got measurements for the first shirt and found out that they fit - simply taken by the measurements - large. Is that in fact the case or shall I still go true to size for they are designed for fitting a dash larger?

    Any input appreciated, as always
    I have the silk/satin shirt in size 2 and love it. The shoulders are a bit big on me but everything else is pretty much perfect. I think if I had gotten the size 1 it would have been a bit too slim. Keep in mind that shirts aren't supposed to be "tight" and the fabric isn't going to give like the jersey ones might. Sleeves are a bit elongated and, on me slim wrists, the cuffs often fall over my hands so someday I will get around to bringing the button in a bit. Fabric is super soft but I don't think it is entirely sheer; mine is black, though. It could be different for white. Either way, I just wear a tanktop underneath.
