anywho, i tried on the james's and they were ok . . . it felt like the front rise was too high or something, like it was just as high as it was in the front as the back. i had a weird puff in the front needless to say, so i guess these guys aren't for me.
i can vouch for the sketchy quality. seeing them hang on the hook just by one belt loop it looked like it would pop off any second!
i like the aesthetic overall though. the thoughtful thumb holders on the back pockets look really cool without looking gimmicky, because they maintain the classic shape of the pocket. i also like that the pockets were long like nudies, but i think i'll stick with my svens for now.
They also have rag&bone now, and they had some apc stuff, but I didn't see any jeans only cords. I was also told they would be getting cheap monday for guys in a month or so. It's nice that houston finnaly has somewhere to buy jeans other than the typical seven and true religion.
