I just saw a ‘super early bird’ became available if someone from the higher reward level wants to switch to the cheaper reward! ;)

@Ken If you wanted to exchange your pair for a different size, you would pay for the return to us, but we would pay for the new pair to be shipped out to you. (Please refer to "Risks and challenges" part for details.) We inboxed you. Thanks:)

Oops I thought I have asked this but couldn’t find the info - if the size turns out doesn’t fit me, do you do exchange for another size?

@Ken Thanks for your comment. We are very proud of the flexibility and stretch retainment of our fabric but it is not easy to define the range of our denim because what people value in jeans always differs from person to person or situations. We use one of the innovative fabrics from ISKO who develops and provides technologically advanced denim for the world’s high-end labels (you can check it on their website if you are interested). Hope this info helps.

Hello @creator. Speaking of uniqlo jeans, I have a few pairs which ultimately I have kept them in the deepest wardrobe because the material that they use are cheap-end. Not to complain becoz I paid cheap as well. For Flyte, how would you comment on the materials? I owned a few Japanese branded jeans (eg J-brand). I hope yours would be similar to mid-ranged at least.

@Kaniawati Thank you for supporting our project! We use 13.5oz stretch denim. Compared to ‘miracle air’, you will probably feel less light or breathable on our denim, this is because ‘lightness’ was not what we featured on this product. Speaking of uniqlo, we think their ultra stretch denim has a close feel and cut to our jeans.(+our jeans have 4way stretch.) Hope this info. helps! If you have other questions, please just let us know.

@mamembrado Thank you for backing our project! Inseams shown on the chart are max length and extendable inseams are not available this time. Instead, we use traditional chain stitching on the hem. Thank you for your feedback anyway.

@Heidi Thanks for checking the sizing chart and we’re sorry the inseam length you were looking for was not on the chart this time. We will consider to offer a wider range of sizes in our future products. Thanks so much for your feedback and please stay tuned.

Hi team, can you share approx what type (in sense of lightness & thickness) is the jeans material. Something that i can feel or imagine how the end product will be. The closest ‘japan’ material i use are from uniqlo and i only prefer their ‘miricle air’ material as its light and breathable but durable too. Meaning also less space when packing for traveling. Thanks.

Hey guys, quick question, do we have a some leeway with your inseam size with something such as extendable inseam accessible by removing a few stitches? Or is it already the max inseam / length ?

Review from Kickstarter
@creator 13.5oz sounds good to me. Thanks for quick reply!

Review from Kickstarter
finally checked the sizing chart - looks like even the men's inseam of 30 is far too short (7 cms) :(
Really want to back, but I don't like short legs for several reasons, so will have to skip this time.

@Shinya Thanks for supporting our project! The denim comes with 13.5oz stretch fabric. It is between the average~light weight range. Please just let me know if you have any additional questions.

@creator, what is the weight of the denim you’re planning to use? I went through the product description page but couldn’t find it. Thanks

@creator, while waiting for your your response on the vanity sizing, just want to make further comments. I hope you won't mind - after all, that's the purpose of Kickstarter, which is different from e-shopping model with backers to contribute ideads and improve the potential of the product. So apart from vanity sizing, just want to say that this is indeed a very cool design (would have been better if it's water-proof / with coating but I understand the constraint), I know sometimes people cateogize their products slightly differently - just noticed that you put this under "Product Design", while I think lots of fashion lovers might miss this. Any idea how to cross-promo so that we could reach more backers for you to develop other stretch goals?

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks @creator. Btw r u using actual waist size or market waist size? Branded jeans have a tendency to label it shorter (eg 30 actually = 31).
Flyte Denim
Review from Kickstarter
@Ken Thanks so much for your feedback! Since the fabric is very stretchy in 4-way, we considered a slide zipper was the better choice to keep its shape and function.
The denim comes with relatively thin, 13.5oz fabric with average breathability. The weight itself is between the average~light range, but you will feel lighter than other jeans because of its flexibility and thinness. Just let us know or DM us if you have further questions.

Review from Kickstarter
@Flip Thanks so much for your suggestion! Yes, stain / odour resistant coating is technically possible and we could add it for our next stretch goal, but we also think that setting a stretch goal that seems too high to reach isn’t a good idea for both of us. However, we’ll make it sure that this idea will be taken into consideration for our next product as a default feature. Just let us know or DM us if you have further questions or feedback.

Review from Kickstarter
And can you share more on the type of denim that you use (eg weight). Given its travel jeans - outside of weight (which matters a lot to jeans ), what about breathability?
Ken Lau
Review from Kickstarter
Also wanna make one suggestion - instead of YKK zipper, have u considered buttons instead? While I have both kinds, I personally prefer buttons.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I’d like to bring up the idea of stain / odour resistance again. Earlier you said “Since we focused on maximizing mobility and comfort for our first product, unfortunately we cannot make it onto this production run of jeans”. I have looked at other jeans and clothing companies that have used some sort of ‘nano coating technology’ to create a stain and odour resistant product, and they have all said that this technology does not affect the mobility or comfort of the product. They have said that you still have the exact same feel and movement in the fabric. Therefore this is not a valid reason not to incorporate this into your product. It adds durability and longevity to your product and is a very appealing and worthwhile feature that consumers want. Could you please please consider adding this for your next stretch goal? Best regards, Flip

Review from Kickstarter
@Heidi Thanks for your question and feedback!
As for different length options, it is unfortunately not yet quite feasible for the size of our company. But we will take your feedback into consideration for future production. Thanks for your understanding.
Yes, we're working to make our sizing chart available as soon as possible. Will let you know once it is ready.
Please just let me know if you have any additional questions.

Review from Kickstarter
Ove the concept, but: Are you planning to offer more length options? plenty women are like me: tall and skinny (my usual jeans size is 28/29 waist and 36 length), so the current sizes don't fit.
Also I'm not a big fan of skinny jeans (I live in Spain, it gets hot), but I can't check if the men's might be an option as the size guide is unavailable. Any chance it can be made available now rather than after the campaign?

@Syed Thanks for backing our project!
For the moment, mens 38" will be the biggest size we will offer. The fabric is very stretchy and it will accommodate most body types. The waist is the only part that does not have much stretch - This is on purpose so that they stay properly on your waist. Hope this info helps!

Hi, are you guys planning on offering bigger sizes ?

@Mike Thanks for supporting our project!
We will have 32 inseam for 28-32" waist, and 33 inseam for 34-38". 30 inseam will not be available for this KS production run. Thanks for your understanding. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

@Benita Thanks for backing our project and reaching out!
It looks you backed the super early bird. Because the number of super early bird rewards is limited, just 1 pair is available to 1 backer. Sorry for the inconvenience but this is also to maintain fairness for all our backers.
The best option for super early bird backers to add another pair is:
1Super Early Bird(¥10,800) + 1Early Bird(¥12,800) + 2 pair shipping cost(¥2,500) =¥26,100
(This is ¥2,200 less expensive than normal 2 pair package.)
If this would be ok with you, please add an extra ¥13,500 to your original pledge amount for an additional pair.
I hope this answer helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

@Desmond Thanks for backing our project and reaching out!
We are considering jet-black color as a stretch goal. If it became available before the campaign ends, we will let you know in Update!
Please feel free to shoot us a message if you have any more questions or feedback for us.

Review from Kickstarter
@Flip Thanks for backing our project and reaching out!
We considered the option of ‘free shipping package for super early bird reward’, but because super early bird price is as low as we can go, free shipping could not be offered. But it is still the best deal you can get for the pair.
As for different colors, we might offer jet-black as a stretch goal. Stay tuned!
Thank you for the idea of stain / odour resistance. Since we focused on maximizing mobility and comfort for our first product, unfortunately we cannot make it onto this production run of jeans, but we will definitely take your feedback into consideration for future runs!
I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any additional questions.
We love the denim ice cream too! Hope you enjoyed Kurashiki.

I backed the early bird, can I add another pair at that same price?

Agreeing with Flip for more colors. Will definitely get more if there are more colors

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I have three comments/questions. I see you have a ‘free shipping package’ option for backers. I think it would also be a good idea to offer your ‘super early bird’ backers with free shipping too as a reward for getting in first! Are you able to offer different colours? It would be nice to have a choice between a few different colours like a washed out light indigo and a charcoal black. Another idea possibly for a stretch goal. Could you offer stain and odour resistant jeans? BTW I live in Ehime, Japan and have visited Kurashiki. I loved the denim ice cream there!! Thank you (ありがとございました)
