Yeah, 5EP's are great. Actually, in my next top 10 jeans list, I will probably include the 5EP bootcut raw in place of the 5EP Straight downs. (The resins are great too - the color on the raws is a little more vivid though. The resin makes the color just slightly more greycast and a little flatter, imo.) I like both models, but I think that the slimmer thighs of the bootcut are more flattering on most men. Of course, bigger dudes with really muscular thighs would generally (there are always notable exceptions) be better off with the Straight downs, provided they are tall enough to pull off the higher rise and dropped crotch.
