    Does anyone here have any experience with the Choctaw Ridge line? It's a little pricey just for a trial run so I was hoping for any hands on experience.

    Yeah the waists are a bit tight for this current season. Mine are still a bit tight but that just means I need to loose a bit more weight.

    I love the color of those pants. Too bad they don't have my size. I'm a 29 waist. Are they baggy. Their measurements seem to imply they are.

    The cut is tight upper area, fuller thigh than normal and then a slim straight leg. It's cut a little baggier like J. Crew classic slim fit (a little slimmer). The color is one of the main reasons I got them. You could ask Christian at leftfieldnyc (at) gmail dot com if he shipped 29s anywhere you could buy them.

    Need a gift for yourself? I've got a pair of BNWT Cone Indigo Selvedge chinos, size 32, that aren't gonna work for me. Yours for $160/shipped (gift or +4%).

    PM me. I'll post in B&S on Monday.

    anyone have an opinion regarding whether I'm SOL on Left Field chinos? I'm 6'5", so pants are always kind of a dicey purchase for me.

    Must find some caramel chinos, they are beautiful. SOMEONE must be selling a pair of 34s somewhere...

    I've been eyeing a pair of Left Field denim from Context and was wondering if anyone could help identify this model:

    http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=2181

    Is it the Nisshinbo Mills model? Natural slub? Something that is out of season? Thanks.

    How would you guys rank the Japanese denim from LF to say, Kicking Mule Workshop's? And quality-wise... compared to, perhaps Raleigh Denim and KMW?

    Reason is, I have a pair of KMWs that are a bit too tight to wear, so might pick up a pair of the LF raw indigo denim (non slub).

    Left Field denim is great. All American components is awesome construction. I have never worn KMW but I would say it would be on par.

    How much did they stretch waist wise? Got a pair coming in as I had some credit and they fit everywhere except the waist looks good for me right now.

    Agreed. Don't have time in a pair to comment on fit behavior but construction is top notch & materials are awesome. they use different fabrics, though, so be sure you explore which denim you are interested in.

    While I have not had any experience with their denim, their chino quality seems to be lacking. Recently picked up a pair of chinos from context, tried them on once then washed them once in the washer, and two buttons fell off :/

    Hey bud,

    There was a production issue with batch a of chinos where the buttons weren't properly secured. E-mail Christian at Left Field and he will take care of you. He actually hand sewed the buttons on the ones for his web shop because he didn't want them falling off on people, but some stock lists may of got chinos with loss button stitching (or someone tried on a pair that was too small...)

    Just received my Cone White Oak Greaser denim, I was wondering if they were unsanforized or not? I ended up purchasing a size 34 due to the actual waist measurements being 33.4" and I have a waist measurement of 34" so I was taking into consideration the 0.5-1.5" of stretch, however they actually a bit looser than I'd imagine. Shot an email to them already but hoping for a quicker response

    Edit: Yup, they're sanforized

    Context has a full size run of the Japanese one on sale:
    http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=2181

    My cone oak ones stretched out well in the waist (ordered a 33, I'm a 34 waist) and the fit is really good for me now. Like the tighter top block but still having room for thighs
