I'll report back on the socks when I go.
I just got finished trying my new jeans.
I bought a pair of AW 15 mid waist in 29 because I think I've maybe gained a little weight recently, and when I tried my 28s recently they were a little tight in the waistband. The 29 looks great and is a good skinny fit, just nice and comfortable in the waist and seat now. Love these jeans and will probably by a second.
Also got a 28 and 29 in the raw hem SS 16 jeans. I really like these a lot. They have baked in creases in the front of the hips, and the back of the knee, and the edge is subtly frayed (look the same as SS 15 from pictures I've seen though). The code inside them is D01 MSK MW so a mid waist D01, however they are quite skinny, just not tapered much beyond the calf. They are a higher waist than the mid waist from AW 15, and slightly looser. I'm kind of in two minds between the 28 and the 29 but I think I'm going to go with the 29 for a looser fit. The 28 kind of just looks like any skinny jeans because they're quite tight, whereas I can see more of the intended cut and details in the 29. Length is pretty short and I don't even need to hem them. I probably will have them shortened into a cropped length though. They look great with Wyatt Chelseas, but also pretty good with cracked shiny French Chelseas and cropped jodhpur boots.
Also bought the light coated jeans, but these are very similar looking to my leather effect ones from SS 13 which I don't wear all that often, so I'm going to return them. The details are nice though, baked in creases and texture, and the stacking at the bottom is quite baked in too. Good value for all the treatment, I just prefer plainer models.
It's quite easy to crop them yourself. Just cut the hem to the size you want and fray away at the hem. Looks the same as the original. You can actually make them look nicer like the sample pic frays.
