I've owned two pairs of 1980s, and after five years and some weight gain, I'm looking for a new pair of slim-straight raw selvage. Since I can't go back to KMW, I was just wondering what people here chosen that lives up to pairs of KMW's they've owned.
What I loved: denim quality, quality of fades, metal buttons, overall fit and finish, minimal branding (esp. the patch).
What I didn't: the price (I wore the hell out of them, but they're by no means cheap), and like a lot of KMW wearers, I could do with a slightly smaller pair of back pockets.
Anybody have any suggestions or testimonials for someone who would buy KMW 1980s again - in a heartbeat - but can't due to present availability?
