I'm thrilled to announce that the final Hoyt sample has been tested and approved. I wore it out last night to Andrew WK, got sweat, beer, and dirt all over it (hit the floor twice), washed it when I got home, and put it on this morning. The fit is right on, and the sanforized denim didn't yield any change in the top block after a wash. The length shrank a full inch.
Here are some raw, right out of the box shots. You'll notice that I never model any of the pants or jeans on our site - because I'm an awful model for them. But, these have been the best-fitting jeans that I've ever put on - just as the Rudy was the best-fitting trouser.
Like the Rudy, it's a tapered fit with more room in the seat and thighs and a higher rear rise that still maintains an overall slim profile and a small-ish leg opening. If you generally need the larger fit of jeans like the APC Rescue, KMW 1950, and select Japanese repro models, but you wish that the legs were slimmer and the overall fit more tailored, then these are for you.
Also, this is the same new Cone selvedge & contrast stitch that we'll use for the new delivery of Smith jeans. So you can expect the Smith to read the same. We've also tweaked the waist so there's no more sizing down one.See LargerSee LargerSee Larger
Note: these are doing a bit of "grab ass," but they were fresh out of the box. After a few hours of wear, they loosened up.See Larger
