I got a pair of Routes at about the same. I wear them with about the same frequency and I have even less in the way of fades, except for my wallet fades.

I'll see if I can post some pics tomorrow. Nothing at all exciting though.

did you wash/soak these?

no soak/wash.

Head's-up to anyone in/passing through New Orleans - saw about a dozen pairs of Crate jeans (some NWT, some NWOT) in a Buffalo Exchange (Garden District), all $40ish. Have never handled the brand before and found the fit/sizing on many odd, so might be factory seconds...

Just got a pair of Journals and they're a bit too relaxed for my taste, should be in B&S tonight, PM if interested before then

My routes reeally started to fade after the first soak. I think Im going to start doing an initial soak on my future pairs of denim.

Is there a Crate model similar to the Routes' cut but with a lower rise? I think that the Crate Routes rise is to high for me, I'm (5'7). I love the cut on the Routes though.. I was thinking maybe the Crate Journals have a similar cut and a lower rise? If anyone can answer thanks.
post #308 of 360
Yeah I'd say journals are pretty similar. Rise is too low for me though.
post #309 of 360
I thought Routes were tapered? Journals are a true straight leg (the Journals I have [sz29, for sale ] are 7 7/8" from the knee to the hem). Then again, it's easy to get legs tapered and impossible to increase the rise

So I acquired a pair of Crate hamiltons. I'm too fat for my LVC 1947s now, and I wanted a selvedge jean in a more traditional cut, and the price was right. Here's fit pics:



I'm satisfied. Takes a bit to get used to after two years of only wearing slim and tapered jeans though.

Yeah, those journals really suck. But the Squires are gold.

anyone know of any places in Los Angeles that carry crate products?
