JONES in 30 arrived yesterday and they are sweet. My other pair is THIN in 29. I sized up one because the THIN are definitely skinny, rock star style and I wanted something slightly more "normal" in the fit and cut. They aren't significantly different in the top block as far as I can tell, but the leg is definitely more of a striaight cut as opposed to a tight taper. I haven't taken any measurements, but if anyone is curious just ask! nod[1].gif

I've had my Original Thin Fit jeans for about 20 months now. They've held up pretty well, I had a pretty significant crotch blow out during the winter when I was frolicking in the snow. I had my seamstress repair it, and they've done fine since then, but the crotch does have considerably more wear than the other parts of the jeans. They have faded very nicely over the months, I have worn them pretty consistently and washed them 4-5 times now. The jeans are quite slim fitting in my opinion, and I've been contemplating moving on to another pair of jeans that are looser fitting. If anyone is interested in buying a used pair of Original Thins' in size 28 message me.

Hey guys,

Anybody know what the difference is between the Nash and the Nash Tencel Selvage Raw. Are the Tencel worth getting? They are currently on sale for 200 bucks.

Im not sure about the blue colour. Ive never seen Tencel denim before. Im stumped....

@Burt Bondy I've never seen tencel denim either; looking around online did not help answer things I would want to know--weight and fading properties, primarily. I'm not big on the starting color of those in the online pics, but they're so different from place to place, so who knows on that front. You could always call Raleigh and ask them about that fabric. I guess if you got a pair, it'd be an experiment.

I carried out an online serch as well and came up blank. Its certainly a mystery this 'tencel' denim.

Becky at Raleigh Denim mentioned the Tencel briefly in an email to me about some other things. This is what she said: "Tencel is made from woodpulp and is one of Cone Mills' eco-friendly denims. They are 10.5 ounces, which is lighter than the 12.5 Original raw denim." Hope this helps a little. I've no idea how they would fade or feel.

Somewhere on SF someone compared it to silk; the (usually not to be believed) fabric write up about tencel that I read on a producers site somewhere this morning said it was good for hot weather. These may be a summer jean in concept. Of course, that silk comment was just from some random guy, and the clothing writeup talked about tencel also being good for hiking trips in colder weather. But at 10.5, that sounds like a summer jean to me.

Tencel is the brand name for lyocell.

Anyone have experience with the Alexander? Webshop says it's a 15" leg opening on a 32" but unionmade has an Alexander (called "Alexander Work") with a 16" opening. I'm looking for the closest thing to a new standard fit as possible.

Alexander aka Alexander work is going to be a fuller cut than new standards. It's still a slim cut however.
