    I agree I don't really like knee rips on Nero or Bianca prefer the cleaner knee rips like on slp denim or the more pronounced blowouts am gonna try to blowout my Nero more by myself

    Got mine from grailed some guy had it brand new ...only used for photo shoot he also had a medium and a small as well ... got for 1k it's on amiri website for $1550 ..,which sucks cause initially wen I considered buying it a couple months ago it was $1350 ...guess because it was popular with some celebs wearing it the changed price to $1550

    6', size 32, and the knee rips on the Neros match up perfectly. Favorite pair of denim.

    It's all really dependent on the length of your legs. Where do the knee rips fall when you sit? Sometimes if they are perfect standing they will be too high when your sitting.

    If you think about how knee rips occur it's due to stress on the denim, they will be stressed the most when you're sitting with your knees bent/flexed. So technically for them to look legit they should be slightly below your knees (at the distal patella) when you're standing and at your knees when you're sitting with your knees flexed. So if it's like that you're ok and they should blow out fine, but you may not like the look asethically.

    If they don't line up at all then you might consider buying the Siena denim, it has high knee blow outs, which is a little strange IMO, because it's not natural. The lower knee has amazing fades where there would be normal stress but than above it it has rips which seems strange. I think they wanted people to see the quality of the fade At the knees. I have a hard time believing that's actually where they ripped on the pair they were based on.

    TL;DR: do the rips align with your knees when you sit down with your knees flexed? If they are still below you're knees than the neros aren't for you, consider he Siena denim.
