Got one of two pairs I ordered direct from the site. This pair arrived in a flat-ish square cardboard box which was a terrific touch since most of our denim ends up in our hands via polybag mailers. Kraft paper wrapped the jeans and a nice hand-signed thank you note was included with a swatch of denim.
They're unfortunately too small for me but the build quality is very good overall...some loose threading here and there but that's at the seam ends.
Take a look through the album and let me know if you have any questions or want photos of something I missed. I really wish these guys fit as I'd have 'em on tomorrow but I'll be sure to rectify that quickly...speaking of rectifying it...I emailed Ciano regarding the other pair I have in their pipeline to see if it'd be possible to size up and got an immediate response saying that they'd recreate this pair for me in the next size up and send my way with a return label. I'm declining the offer as best as I can since their measurements are spot on and should work for me but my weird ass/thighs have an issue with some slims. Great service all around.
Was hoping to see another fit pic or two before ordering to get another look at placement and size of the rear pockets. You guys keep giving us photos of great looking products you can't wear (thanks for being early adopters)
They've promptly answered all my inquiries, but sometimes I get an answer the next day. I feel that they are quite busy, and don't get to the e-mails until the end of the day sometimes. Their fit is different than Gustins, for sure, but I think you will get much closer to spec with CF, than you will with Gustin, as Ciano makes them in house, and has total control of the sewing.
I got great customer service from Ciano too. He offered to slim down my 20oz because I made a small comment about the word "loose" here....
if that's being violated, violation is pretty awesome.
i got two pairs from another company lately that were too big even though i asked for them to be reduced in size prior to production. ouch. had to say it.
you can send them to me..we can take them in for you...since you are a current customer we offer this service FREE of charge..we only ask that you not abuse this service.....no need to send us 50 pair to take in... Cheers Ciano
