The three layer sleeve detail is KILLER.  Instacopped.. Surprised it hasn't sold out in any size yet

Anyone want to sell me the cast 2 cropped white in a 32? Will pay retail and throw in a 15% off code to JE.

They're supposed to drop on Roden Gray at some point, you're not the only one waiting for a pair lol

Just got the black cropped denim in. Got my normal size 29, they are extremely tight compared to other JE denim. I have a few pair of the cast 2 and the zincs to compare and they are the tightest denim so far. Anyone else feel the same way?

Good to know. I have the scarabs and zincs in a 32 and wouldn't want them any more right than they are. Even after the stretch.

Yeah, they look extremely tight. I want a pair of the cast 2 white cropped—but I have concerns about the upper thigh and leg opening.

 

Does anyone have a pair in a 32 that can tell us how they fit?

Paging @jbidwal. Did you go TTS on the cropped denim? (I know you're not a 32, but trying to get an idea of sizing). Thanks

You can tell they are tighter just by looking at the cut.  They are way more slim cut but they also have more stretch than any other denim JE has made.  My white cropped are actually a size 28 and my other pairs are a 29.  All of my 29's are obviously loose now but I knew that going in as I prefer a looser waist on jeans that aren't super stretchy.  I'm not sure how the cropped will stretch out but I don't have any issues fitting into them and the waist is comfortable due to the extra stretchy material. 

 

IMO base your purchase on how you want them to look rather than what fits.  If you don't want a skinny fit, you will have to size up and will have to wear a belt.  true to size will fit but they will be skinnier compared to anything else you bought before. size 28 is my true JE size and these fit me fine at that size.

Agree, waist fits fine. The thighs are tight. On a quick glance it didn't look like the raw hem was reinforced. Did you notice this on yours?

You could buy the stretch mica in 32 with your discount and cut the bottoms off. You'd save some money too

I don't think it was but I never seen any pair that was.  All of my SLP raw hems are the same way.

he can do this but the material isn't the same incase that's what he is after.  The normal don't have the stretch and the color is different as well .

To add on to the second part of this, it is deceiving that Cast 2 Stretch Mica is stretchy. They are fairly still, but have enough give that they won't tear in the crotch or anywhere else that is more fitted. I am on my way home to try my black cropped on, got my TTS 29 that I take in all my JE denim. Coast shorts are awaiting me as well.

@jbidwal thanks man. Makes sense.

@nsubrmnn - yah I don't like messing with $300+ jeans, I'll let the pros do it. Appreciate the thoughts.

Thinking about these layered Crews... but I dont own any crews yet.  I wear a size XL Mercer (5'10", 185, athletic build).  XL crew as well you think?
