yeah met mauro after lunch and have been wearing them all day till now (although my experience has been limited to sitting in the law library all day in them)
fantastic fit and just really comfy ... again want to stress that the weight of these are great. maybe its cuz ive been used to wearing really thick 20+ oz denim from self edge but these are just great. slim through the thigh and through the leg but not ridiculously skinny
in terms of sizing, im typically a 28 or a 29. i tend to go 29 for formal/business trousers and 28 for denim to account for stretch. i took 28 in these and its perfect. tight at the waist button but not uncomfortable. length is a very manageable 35, which mauro thinks is long, but again i had like 37 or 38 length from SE that im used to, so this is a good length
noticed that mauro did not put a leather patch on these. i typically dont care either way but makes these have a really clean look
cant wait to see how these age
lastly (arguably most importantly especially on SF) is price point. if your a tote holder, these going around 125ish is a no-brainer ... no better bang for your buck. even if your not a toteholder this is still cheaper than MOST SF approved denim lines AND again more bang for your buck with all of the little features that denim heads can appreciate ... hidden rivets, button hardware, quality jap selvedge, etc.
