How are the cheap monday jeans?

post #72542 of 102446
Wearing my pair right now. Dig 'em. Softer than my Nudies, as these have a bit of elasticity, but not too much, so that they still feel like jeans. I'm usually a 30 waist, tried on a pair of 29s which I could button, but they were too much painted on. They had no 30s, but the 31s fit nicely. A bit looser around the waist, but nothing visible, longer 34 inseam stacks nicely. Haven't washed these yet or wore them too much, so can't say anything about durability.

Cool, I was thinking of picking up these ones because I've been looking for a decent pair of dark gray jeans for a while. There's a pretty nice pair of Dior Hommes on yoox which I would obviously prefer to have, but I don't really have the money and hopefully these'll be a decent non-baller option.

 

Is that the same model you have?

Weekday is riddled with crap anyway. The store smells funny and every piece of clothing there somehow has a crusty feel. Only the Cheap Monday jeans are bare ok.

Always loved the grey that april 77 uses... though I guess it's not a dark grey

You can get them from the cultizm site for a bit less, and they have a 10% off code for newsletter sign up. I've had both those and Cheap Monday, and I can never go back to CM now... feels cheap. I don't think the pictures on april 77 or cultizm do the fit justice.

I love Adjustable Costume, and these guys rule.

i always thought all the uniqlos sold the same stuff, but i found out things are actually cut smaller in korea. you're probably right. i've only tried on the suits at the soho uniqlo

Pretty cool how well this kickstarter-project has gone, they were asking for 20k, they have 317k right now, and they still have 9 days to go.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/weargustin/gustin-redefining-premium-menswear-starting-with-d

Cut is kinda bad, but they've said the first cut they will do as soon as they're done with kickstarter is a more a slim model(or you could just get a pair and have them tailored, 100-120$ is still a good deal for a pair of selvage jeans)

 

All reviews have been positive too so far

idk what took them so long

HLorenzo ships crazy fast. I'm very impressed
post #72553 of 102446
reading the kickstarter page, aggravated by the paragraph about "we only make what we want to wear. A perfect slim straight leg. A timeless look that will never go out of style"

Timeless is the worst clothing buzzword ever

Clothing copywriting has me thinking of doing away with words altogether
post #72555 of 102446
^^ Words are timeless yo
