Amazing, really. I took a 28 because the waist runs a little big on the 003s. The fit is really slim, super low back yoke, really great denim that gets slubbier as its worn, and very comfortable.
Quality compared to APC, denim is better, stitching is a little worse. Quality compared to 5EP, denim is equal, hardware is not as good, stitching isn't as good either.
But damn, the fit is stellar. Really. And at $150, it's a bargain. They're my favorites right now simply because the fit is just so on point.
