Seems I read a lot about the thigh-waist disproportion in the Mellor, and right now it's the only thing keeping me from buying a pair. Does anyone else have experience with this? Is this something unique to the older models?
Any one with new feedback on this brand? They seem to best fit my need for a no-frills all-american jean.
Does any one have fit-analogies for these?
I am 31 in the J Crew Urban Slims. I cannot comfortably wear a 30.
I wear a 32 in Levis STF, which should now be about a 31. They're a bit roomy.
I was thinking a 30 in these, what with denim stretching.
I too am looking for my first pair of raws.To add from my search, some models from Tellason run a bit wider--I believe the Ankara is a straight leg with a roomier thigh. If price is an issue, Levi's has a sale that ends today; I got a pair of USA made 501 for $125 with free shipping. The construction has a lot of the features advertised on other brands--selvage coin pocket, single-fell inseam, chain-stitched hem, single-needle waistband. the pocket bags are nice heavy...
Thanks for the response. I received them today and compared them to STF 501s I'm wearing at the moment. The quality is far superior, as one would expect. So that's fun to see and a nice confirmation that I get what I pay for. Good to know there are indeed factories in the USA; that's just peace of mind more than anything else. My attention now has shifted the Rogue Territory Stanton. I think Ill keep up the search for a bit.
Does anyone know anything about Levis mainline made-in-usa manufacturing? Is it USA or USA (And territories)? Google's failed me much.
Just ordered a pair of cone mills 501s on sale, but am starting to second guess myself; thinking maybe I should get something a little more artisan for a little more money. Knowing the process is an appeal for me, but the Levis were 125.
Picked up a pair of selvedge made in the USA 501s during the current sale. Anyone happen to know where they are made? Is this a made in the USA (And Territories) made in the USA kinda thing? That matters to me, for whatever reason.
Also, thoughts on those? They were 125 on the discount, but I'm having second thoughts and might save up for a Tellason/3sixteen.

I'm at a point where I buy slowly and of quality, but I also know I'll never be at the point where I only buy nice things--just a few items here and there. Where do chinos rank on the versatility/durability spectrum? My perception of that spectrum goes something like this:
Shoes and outerwear I'm good with at the moment, and I'm not going to replace my shrink-to-fits until I have to. Where do...
