I’ve been wanting a pair of these for a while. For some reason I didn’t hop on the last S&S batch when they opened up the Santa Fe store — I really have loved seeing the way people’s have evolved. Gonna most certainly get a pair next time they have em available (505 iirc).

Seems that Ooe is rarely doing standard blue jeans lately. Glad I got this pair last year  :)

I managed to snag a pair of those Mechanic Overalls S&S put up — anybody else get some? First pair of Ooes, stoked.

EDIT. I stand corrected. Just got an email refund notification. Too many people trying to place orders at the same time, didn't actually end up getting a pair. Shit. Oh well.

Bummer!  I heard a few people ended up missing out.  OOE makes some phenomenal pieces, definitely worth the purchase.  If you're not on their mailers I'd consider getting added just so you have a heads up on pre-orders for their gear.

@BloodnThunder yeah it's a bummer but really I think it's probably for the best — those weren't my faves by a long shot, but I was kinda just scrambling for whatever I could get. Pretty lightweight denim, buckle back (not bad but I'd rather not have that tbh). I really want something like the S+S collab 505s they did, more of just a classic 5 pocket. Mari's got me marked down to be notified, but frankly I just have zero idea of when they'll be making anything like that. Sigh!

Did anyone else pick up a pair of the new Standard & Strange NYC Ooes? I got some — they're really, really killer.

No fit pics yet because I haven't soaked em — they're pretty big at the moment. That said, I ended up getting a slightly smaller size (35) than I may have normally gotten, because Mari recommended doing an on-body soak. She said it's good to aim for these being pretty trim post-soak, as they'll stretch back out — sounds like a plan. 

The concept of wearing jeans in the tub has always been a ridiculous concept to me, but alas the denim disease has gotten its hooks fully in, haha.

Anyway, guess I'll wait until the weather's back in the 80s to do that. So in Texas, probably January.

I found that this recent Ooe x S&S pair shrinks predictably but you will need to do it twice to get all the shrink out.  I bought 36 to get a 34 and that's right where it is.  They are still pretty loose but the fit in the thigh and knee suits me well---much like IH 634.  I put my in the wash on a no spin cycle and hung them up.  I prefer a heavier weight denim for most of the year----I get 7+ months of very cold weather---and my daily go-to is IH-XHS.

ahh nice @profdbrk thank you! That's super helpful. I usually need a pair of jeans with a 12" rise to be about 33" post soak, then they'll stretch out a bit, so the fact that you lost about 2" seems perfect.

I've heard the bit about them shrinking again after the first soak. Pretty interesting, and good to confirm that it happened to you too. I'll definitely keep that in mind.
