Good call - same company as N&F but with lower quality hardware and construction in somewhere China-ish but not China. I'd guess the denim quality isn't as good either but that's a great price.

How's the fit on them? I'm sure they will loosen up in a week or so. As for N&F jeans if u ever want to try a pair www.*********.com has a great sale on right now 30% off .
I have done that many a times wishing I bought a pair one size down. I now tend to buy mostly things I can read up about or try on in person. The key with most raw denim or any denim for that matter is to expect some stretching. In the past iv always bought my waist size but noticed they eventually stretched so much I hated the fit. I now generally go with a waist that's 1 down that stretches to my normal waist.
I'm resurrecting this thread to say that I just bought, online, two pair of jeans from Jcrew:
a pair of wallace and barnes slim selvedge jean in white oak cone denim for 70 dollars, and pair of jcrew something or other bootcut jeans for 25 dollars. So, two pairs for under 100 dollars, one of which is made in the US. So, we'll see how they fit and whether or not I keep them. But, 25 dollars for jeans... had to take that risk. And 70 dollars for US made jeans... I also had to give those a try.
Jcrew has never failed to accept a return that I brought in to a store.
