      I really would like to replace my two Dillon Montara jeans that were in my luggage and bag lost/stolen. These are the only jeans that fit me well and are my favorite. I have been searching high and low to find them to no avail.

      I am still waiting my jeans, i was wondering who can i talk to about receiving them?

    3. James Park on

      After having worn the two pairs of jeans I've gotten since August, I can say I am most impressed with their quality, comfort, and great looks. I haven't worn any other pants since! Thank you and great job to everybody on the Dillon Montara team!

      Hi Guys, I don't mind we're doing things slowly. That was the point from the start. And I imagine you have your reasons, no big deal. But please keep us posted. It helps.

      I got my Jeans, the look beautifully simple. I love them. They unfortunately don't measure what they should going by the sizing chart. You have my PMs. Please respond.

      Does anyone have a phone number to contact Dillon montara since written reply has been so weak?

    7. Benjamin Holmes on

      Long shot. But anyone in the UK got a Chore Coat in XS and want to trade it for a Small?

      Hi All,

      I have been trying to contact these guys for several weeks now with an urgent request, and have gotten no reponse. Is there a reason these guys have gone silent? I am slowly getting pissed off about this.

      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Hey team, just got my jeans. They're beautiful, and snug. Bending your legs is overrated anyway.

      Are these jeans that should get a good soaking in warm water first, or should we just throw em on and get to fading?

    15. Les Campbell on

      Just wondering if it me but I can't get a response for anyone. I returned my american's back in the end of July due to sizing issues. Still waiting on them to send me back the jeans..check your inbox, all the info you're waiting for is in the email.

    16. xkaichaix on

      Got my Japan Blue & Chore Jacket today.The fit was great but the Yukata & Jacket need a higher armhole.It's just a wee bit low.That's the only downside.The Jeans fits perfectly,just need to hem it down.

    17. John M on

      Got the Japan Blue, fantastic fit! A little tight to start, which is what you want, and now that I've been wearing them a couple days they are really starting to wear in great. Great with the yukata shirt!
      Great quality, great style, always attentive responses to my email = A+ in my book. Happy to have been a backer, even happier to have some sharp clothes and a new fave brand.

    18. Alastair Crosswaite on

      The American arrived today. Perfect fit. Amazing quality and finish. Well done all @ DM for making this happen cheers

    19. Joeroen on

      Today I received my Chore jacket and Japan Blue. They are really great and fit perfect.
      @DM, thank you very much for this quality product. I will definitely keep an eye on your Brand and great products.

      I have yet to receive any part of my pledge and all my private messages have went unanswered.

      I understand you are trying your best for production, but it would be great if you could at least reply the private messages or comments.
      I am not trying to rush the production but some updates would be proper.

      Received the Noir today. Construction is really nice. Fit is good, personally I'd like a little less taper because it's hard to wear most boots with them, but I knew to expect that. Great jeans overall!

    31. xkaichaix on

      So,the rest of my items will be shipping end of this week?

      @Michael Tay:

      Hi Michael,
      The Japan Pure Blue jeans are coming off the line this week. We'll try and get your order off to you straight away. Sorry for the long wait.

      Tyler on

      Hey guys,
      I just wanted some clarification on the update. Is it just the single orders of chore coats that went out? Or all of them including if you got a bundle? I'm just very eager to get the coat as well as the jeans! I love the shirts especially the yukata and the keychain is awesome as well. Hope to hear from you fellas soon!

      I received my jeans this week and the sizing is off from what is listed. I ordered a 31 and the sizing chart says it will be a 32 but it measures a 31. Its says the thigh will be 22 3/4 and it measures closer to 21. Thats kind of a big deal for a fitted jean. Not only did I have to wait months for these jeans the sizing is way off.

      Just received my American jeans today. Perfection to say the least. All that I can say to everyone else is that the wait will be worth it. You'll be wearing yours for years to come.

      Just got my jeans today and I must say, they are amazing. My first pair of handmade jeans. Some people don't get how it works when artists work. It takes time and it was well worth it.

    41. Les Campbell on

      @Dillon Montara
      HI I received my jeans today thanks however I think there is an issue with the sizing. I ordered a 38 and I just measured the waist and the pair that I received are measuring at 17.5in across that equates a waist size of 35. I'm more than happy to return this on my own dime to get a correctly size pair if that's not possible than I would like a refund.

      Greetings all! The balance of the Noir jeans are under the needle now. Won't be long. Sorry for the long delay.
