cut is kind of tricky on the xx005 cut (xx007, xx010 ?is purple face i think).
it is 'straight leg' but it actually technically is a boot cut. very slightly. hem is about a quarter wider than the knee.
the thigh on these is one of the slimmest amongst the japanese brands. the thighs may be too narrow on even sizing up one .
the top block is one of the lowest rised top blocks there are.
i would say pbj is more unisex than most brands.
ive had the purple face before and although i never ended up wearing it, the denim is a nice purple slubby stiff fabric. lighter than usual i thought it would be deeper/darker more prone to an indigo but it isnt. it really is a purple.
ive seen it faded though and worn. it absolutley looks fantastic, simply one of the more unique jeans out there and if you got the body to pull it off, it looks terrific. it really turns heads.
