I like the pocket bags and patch idea, not sure how I feel about the arcs unless they were tonal. I’d of course prefer the 666 cut if we had to pick a cut but I imagine a poll would be the way to go to determine which cut. But super cool pocket bags and patch would be awesome.

I imagine a forum-specific denim (available in a few different cuts like 555-666-888) rather than a forum-specific model would be out of the question?

It would be tough to have a cut that was accessible to all.  I can't squeeze into the thigh on 666, and hang out of the top of a 777...everyone has their story.  For that reason, I'd say go with a classic 634!  The cut is the most universal (though current iterations have gotten slimmer in the thigh...ouch.)  The hipsters who can't hang with a straight cut might learn a thing or two if they could bring themselves to buy in. (And this from someone who strongly prefers a good taper).

Model/Lot number for the forum jean could be IWHWIH  :D
This is my favorite idea yet.

I’m definitely a 555 guy,but maybe the answer is jeans and a shirt,or jacket or CPO from the denim. Similarly to what was recently done recently with the special black denim. This way one or the other might work for you. Also maybe some kind of incentive to get the set.

I'm in for any cut of a forum jean, so long at it's the 888.

Also, let me state that I have little interest in patches or pockets.  If these are the special tweaks a forum jean gets, and I don't yet have that fabric, then I'll buy of course, but it won't do anything for me.  I'd be far more interested in a special treatment, or fabric.  Like, a loomstate but with a post dunk in Giles' bathtub or some such.  Or an overdye in boddingtons or whatever you brits drink.

Let me also say that you should absolutely not listen to a word I say.  9 times out of 10 my favorite items end up in the outlet (I still buy them 3 min after release), so I'm about as #unpopularopinions as you can possible get and still be interested in coming back here.

I would totally go for something overdyed in Boddingtons :D

The bitter taste of low quality lingers long after the sweetness of the low price is gone.

Since it is clear no one cut will suit all of us, maybe we can agree to start off with a widely accommodating cut (is 634 the right one?) and we each get our pair modified to our own preference.  If we do it with a really unique fabric and details (arcs, pockets bags, patch, GAH rivets) it will remain ‘the forum denim’ regardless of our individual tailoring. It may provide a good basis for a thread showingcasing different combos, fades and evos.

Just my 0.02!

Pick the cut, that's the bastard....

If the goal is to address a wide range of customers with a single cut i would guess the best thing to do is weed out all extremes (high rise, low rise, super slim, wide hem, ...). This would leave a jean with a medium rise, some room in the thigh (not like recent 666 iterations!) and a moderate taper. Something along the lines of Pronto's tapered cut models (PIHXHS, PIH5DCT, PIH10ANT). Here are the numbers for my personal pair  :D

W:   33
FR:  11
RR:  15
TH:  12,25
KN:  8,5
H:   7,5

heavyweigth fabric (20oz+) with special character, indigo wabash pocket bags, tonal stitching and a forum patch  8)

I think we should have some different coloured arcs not just tonal. Tonal has been done. Also what are the chances of having some kinda GOOD ART buttons or at least the top button. If we are going to do a forum jean lets make it proper special.

^^ with 'tonal stitching' i was referring to the overall constructional stitching  ;). Arcs could be coloured or left out or whatever ...

Regarding the custom patch design: how about adding the member's forum name or a custom name on the patch for every order? That'll make each pair even more individual and really special. BTW the 555 cut has my vote.

More thoughts on the forum exclusive jeans as I seem to have woken up in the middle of the night for no reason with these thoughts rolling around in my brain:

  • since Giles is the face of the forum and the 666 is his cut, this should be the cut. OR...
  • pick a cut that came about with significant forum input (888 comes to mind), OR...
  • if we’re trying to find a happy middle ground cut, what about bringing back the Beatle Buster? A slightly slimmer 634 cut with a slightly higher rise, named after a former prominent forum member.
  • the forum should collectively brainstorm a new denim into existence.
  • whatever the outcome, IWHWIH positively HAS to be the model number.
