I am looking at these jeans on the Aero site and wondered what you guys can tell me about them? Does anyone have a pair and if so what are you opinions on the quality and fit?

They're nice....a good alternative to LVC

I think the denim is thinner than Levis and even tho it's sanforized it shrinks more than you'd guess (about a full 1" off the waist with a rinse)

Fit-wise, it depends on the model year, but IME a tad looser than Levis. I *think* the Lee 101z are slimmer fitting with a half selvage.

I have the 101B Euro and have just ordered the 101Z's. I normally take a sz 32 waist and i ordered these in a 30 and they fit perfect in the waist and are cut a little loose in the legs. I havent washed them yet so i cant tell you about shrinkage but they are a very light and soft denim, not the stiff nudy or A.P.C. selvedge that many are used to (which is what i expected them to be). I like them alot and keep them in my regular rotation. I ordered the Z's in my regular waist sz because they are said to fit a little slimmer, i will report back when i get those in.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
