No idea what season, I'd guess current though. Cut is Detroit and color is pearl.

I have a pair of Detroits from a couple seasons ago and while I've never bothered to measure them, your thigh vs. hem measurement look about right. The taper from the thigh to bottom hem is so excessive that I cannot wear them. They are made for someone muscular who wants the semblance of skinny jeans. If you're actually skinny, I would avoid them.

Also, quality is not very good. I've worn mine only a couple times and there's already stitching that's pulling apart on the seams.

I like how they fit, but that last part has me worried now. Luckily I haven't taken any tags off yet.

I have a pair of berlins? I think - bought them used off sufu for like $20 in some guys closet cleanout, so sans tags - and they've the weirdest cut I've ever seen, and more in a poplin than a denim. Thigh measures something like 10", rise is 8", back pockets are hilariously tiny, but then the hem is 7.3" or something. Put me off Rick pants for the longest time.

 

Have only worn them ten times or so, but quality is what I would expect from Dick; hems coming undone, but major seams and stuff in decent shape.

tiny back pockets and 8 inch rise sound like women's jeans.

They're definitely from his men's line, Rick pockets are just weird:

i've noticed a lot of drkshdw that show up in sales threads on sufu and sz are considered mistagged. are you sure that wasn't the case with these?
post #32122 of 45007

Positive, since I've handled the women's cuts as well and they're completely different and even shorter. I think it's just an issue with how he scales the patterns down to babysizes, or a mistake made on my pair.

oh rick, your quality control is so loveable.

But the garment has undergone a craftmade treatment, specific ecological products to give him an experienced aspect. Therefore every imperfection is to be considered as a product feature and must not be considered as defect or cause of complaint.

Some ideas of possible problems to look for....

On the darted leg seams the stitching started unraveling right where the bottom of the dart begins. (I had a pair of KZO jeans with leg darts that did this too). I would suggest turning the jeans inside out and carefully examining these seams. Pay particular attention to how the beginning of the seam is fastened.

And on the rear pocket a hole developed right where the corner of the pocket connects to the jeans. Examining it more closely revealed that excessive stitching reinforcement on the corner of the pocket weakened the fabric in the area. Basically so much stitching had been done that there was literally little to no fabric remaining in the area. So what at first glace looked extra sturdy was exactly the opposite.

I also think that the wash / distressing treatment of my DRKSHDW jeans played a role. While the washes are really cool looking, I suspect this process greatly compromises the integrity of the fabric.
