Sits at the natural waist. Relaxed...
the front rise on those red's looks painful
RRL vest any day the Ironheart is very boxy looking in person.....and RRL has much better details see the fit pics on their blog to see what I mean: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3396.0 In addition, the current generation of Wabash doesn't fade very easily, so it will look stiff and new for years before you get any real indigo development (I'm talking from experience with my pants made of the same fabric and washed a lot more than I would ever wear/...
