Hard words to type, but I have to say that I'm overall disappointed with the coated D02s after a few months' wear. I've not washed them yet, but have had them dry cleaned with no noticeable difference. I really didn't expect the knees to expand so much. I ended up hemming the jeans as the material stretched there as well, causing the stacks to go farther down my Hedi 30s than I wished.
This was my first time with D02s so I'm glad to see that this isn't a consistent feature. I may return to them in future seasons. But for now, if you are looking specifically for an ultra-minimalist pair of black jeans with a super skinny cut (the main reason I turned to SLP), I recommend the Rag & Bone Fit 0 jeans. I've washed them without any change; they haven't bagged out or stretched as absurdly, and the leg opening is distinctly smaller than the D02s--I find they actually pair better with the Hedi 30s than the D02s. Really wish I had a pair of 40mm boots to pair it with. I'm getting the 30s Topy'd at B. Nelson, but will post a photo of the pairing when I have them back.
