Hmm, those are pretty flared and it looks like you are wearing them a little baggy. That isn't necessarily bad for a casual look but IMO it looks a little bit sloppy with a jacket. The worn version of the 5EPs are going to be quite soft, but still much better denim quality. I guess it's kind of a Attolini vs Brooks argument that I'm making in formalwear terms
AGs are decent jeans, I own a few pairs that I'd wear for more casual outfits, like T-shirt/jeans etc, but generally I like to dress up my jeans to 5EP/Rag & Bone when I'm wearing them with blazers/jackets. Yes the one washes are going to be slightly more rigid and less soft than washed jeans, but you begin to like the look a lot more once you start wearing them, it's like wearing canvas suits vs fused
The RB1 would be another good jean to look at if you want something looser, Hefjina stocks Rag&Bone and I think they're actually in Chicago on N. Milwaukee so you may want to check them out.http://www.hejfina.com/details.asp?t...gProductId=383
