As a buyer I would say they're not on my "hip" list. But if they look good on you then why not? Pepe is one of those jeans brands that nobody knows what to do with. I saw a great collection two years ago. Then after that nothing of note. I think their problem is the image...they just don't seem to have one; and sadly this is sometimes more important than the product itself as far as being considered "hip" is concerned. I can't tell you how they fit or how the quality of the denim is, though.
