    Thanks so much for the continued posts! I loved reading about the whole process, fraught as it was (I admit it, I LOLed hard at the pair you got in the mail), and can’t wait to read about the bodyscanned pair. I’m assuming you’ll link to it from this post? If it’s REALLY awesome, I may have to take a trip to Emeryville when I’m in the Bay Area this July…good things are worth waiting for! 🙂

    Can You please let me know wether the scanning machine took the measurements in different way – was it in the end Your error when You were entering the measurements and is this error going to be common with everyone else as well who try to order without a scanner? What is Your opinion on entering measurements without getting scanned?
    You write: “I was curious whether the error was mine or the company’s. It’s completely possible that I screwed up my own measurements or answered one of the subjective fit questions that accompany the online ordering questionnaire in a misleading way.”

    • Hi Heiki –

      The scanning machine is definitely a more accurate way to get measured, I think. The technology takes your measurements with precision that I think it’s difficult to achieve on one’s own, especially without the help of a 2nd person to take the measurements – that said, I do think it’s possible to submit accurate measurements and end up with a pair of jeans that fits without the body scan – that method just didn’t work out that well for me when I tried it. It’s important to note that I didn’t return the jeans and make fit adjustments in order to get a new pair – the company allows you to do that for any order – and as I recall, all you have to cover is the shipping….so it’s not like you’d end up stuck with a pair of jeans that don’t fit. You can keep adjusting them until they do fit….

      Hope that helps…

    You must have received the new pair of jeans by now…  Did I miss the post with the results?  I’d love to hear how they fit!
