Anyone checked out jeans from 2(X)ist? Any good as a basic? Worth $50-60?
I have a few 2(x)ist jeans (probably half a dozen pairs) and I am very happy with them. They underwent some transformations in the fit and design and the more recent models are pretty good (the early button-fly versions were hideous with some really odd measurements). They are not fussy and good as basics, though I wouldn't pay more than $50 for them even new. They can be easily found discounted at several online stores and currently amazon.com has a clearance sale on several models, they have been reduced from $120-$150 to $20 per pair. They are all low-rise, with a very comfortable seat, the fabric seems to be good quality, on me at least they look good and I get compliments. The pair of "Road" 2xist jeans I am wearing right now are my all time fave for casual wear - supersoft, relaxed without being baggy and all around comfortable. The recent models come with a little note inside the pocket with the signature of the person who hand-washed and finished them, which I find rather amusing. Mine are all made in Canada.
P.S. another added bonus - I have never met another person wearing 2xist jeans, they aren't that common.
You gotta be damn skinny to buy a pair on Amazon right now - waist sizes go to 33 on one pair and 31 on all the others.
Good price if the sizes will fit you.
Amazon had many more sizes just last week, but I guess the word is spreading. The thing is, they are eligible for free shipping and if you sign up for an amazon credit card during checkout you get $30 off your first purchase. Essentially you can get two pairs of jeans with a total MSRP of around $270 for $10 instead - still in sealed bags, with tags and no sales tax. You can't get such bargains even at Walmart. www.sierratradingpost.com has a bigger variety of sizes, their prices are in the neighbourhood of $40-$45 USD.
