Thanks, Gus!

 

I have a pair of classic fit Cone Mills 13.5 oz. in a 31 waist. If I could add a slight taper below the knee I would but other than that they are great, and the pricepoint makes them even more awesome. I was able to visit their manufacturing facility and they are not cutting any corners with these jeans. The material and construction quality are just as good - if not higher - than the other $200-250 jeans made at the same place. 

 

My full review is here.

Like Gus mentioned, I also saw Josh Gustin wearing the first pair of slims and they looked good on him. A bit too slim for my tastes but it still worked.

Were the slims similar to apc petite standard? Are the standards similar to j brand Kane?

Super Heavy & Overdye

Each has been worn a few times. Excuse any cat hair.



Closer look at the texture

It's tough passing over so many nice fabrics but I just couldnt take the risk without first knowing the fit. I have a pair of slim italians slated for month end delivery but I think it's gonna spill over to July.

Didn't even know they sold Overdye.

 

Damn, I missed out.

I think I heard the overdyes weren't really overdyed. They just had the same color warp and weft.

Correct, or at least that's what Stephen at Gustin confirmed for me. I had suspected as such, but even if it was true overdye, I wanted to know what the base color of the warp and weft was. He said that they realized it probably wasn't actual overdye because the selvedge still showed and wasn't dyed over, which is what got me wondering to begin with. This is what I would expect for an overdye:



Oddly enough, I'm seeing a number of jeans labeled as "overdyed" that have real crisp ID colors. Even if they didn't submerge the entire fabric, I would expect a less crisp edge. (The fabric would be hard to stir in the dye vat as well.)

They were part of the KS campaign. If I remember right, they sold out almost immediately. I refreshed at just the right time.

I imagine the slims were similar the petite standards but I'm not speaking from direct experience with either. Measurements for both are easy to find so I imagine you could compare them pretty easily.

Its too bad they don't make size 28s. Their jeans look good and seem to be excellently made, especially at those prices.

HAL9000, I'm usually a size 28, so I skipped out on the Kickstarter. These guys were right down the street from me and I really wanted to support an exciting up and coming local business, so I emailed Josh and Stephen and they had me come by (they're currently working out of a loft apartment in downtown SF). They told me that they do even less vanity sizing than most of the premium selvage brands, and lo and behold, I was very comfortably able to fit into one of the 29s. Did a quick size comparison and their 29 is actually slightly snugger than Naked and Famous's 28.

Just got my pair of slim Heavy Japans today and I love the cut. Like brillopad said, they are easily comparable to jeans 2-3x the cost. I love the attention to detail , like the buttons and rivets, patch, and selvage beltloop. If I'm not mistaken, these are made in the same factory alongside Tellasons and 3Sixteens.

I guess I'm the first one on the forum to get my slims, so I'll post some fit pics. Also added a comparison photo with a pair of Naked and Famous Weird Guys - the cut is pretty similar.

Also, I must say for 15 oz denim, these are already pretty damn comfy (for raws, anyways).

Looks great, drift3r. I'm looking forward to trying the slims.
