We’re all about the little shops here in Brooklyn, but when there’s another place somewhere with really good deals, our readers should know about it—even if it’s in Mumbai. So a few months ago, for an article in one of our favorite magazines, we did a test-shop at MakeYourOwnJeans.com, an online store that creates men’s and women’s made-to-order jeans, based upon your own measurements and design specs. It’s an involved process because not only do you have to calibrate your knee circumference and front and rear crotch heights, among other unmentionables, but you must choose virtually every aspect of the design, such as the weave, rise, leg flare, button and stitch color. (Not every option is a winner, so let not temptation lead you to some of the Goth-inspired pocket embroideries and stylings like “super hand ripps.”)
But so perfectly fitting are these jeans that we now have five pair, and we talked our new Mumbai friend Harry at MYOJ into giving us a coupon so you can try them too. (And no, this is not sponsored content.) Now through the end of the month, you can get 15 percent off of Harry’s impossibly low prices (most styles are under $50 to begin with). Just type in yourstyle at checkout. And be honest with the tape measure—these people have definitely seen bigger butts than yours.
