    I was looking at those and the Morrison the other day. After a quick visual of the tapered cut on the Morrison I didn't even bother with them. Tried the Gough in my normal 31x32 and the waist was too big. They unfortunately didn't have a 30x32, so I tried a 29x30. A little tough to get on and button up, and a bit too short, but after some intensive stretches in the dressing room they weren't too bad. I still would want to go with 30x32, the 29's were just too tight. The selvage seemed decent for a $98 retail and I think I'd probably buy a pair if I could score them for less.

    denim quality seemed decent, but the cut was pretty loose, sized down 1 to a 33 and the legs were still rather loose on me and I have pretty large theighs.

    I sized down 3 from my measured waist size and wasn't feeling the cut. Selvage everywhere, though.

    I had trouble with 2 down, 3 would take a work of magic to get into in my case.

    i dunno i think i could have sized down 1 more to a 32 but it would have come damn close to cutting me in half i cant imagine going down 3.

    I've been losing weight (217 in Jan 06, 189 this morning) and haven't really measured myself recently, so that may be slightly inaccurate. I tried on a 35. The legs felt too loose.

    Couple of questions for those that have a pair of these.
    Did anyone else find that they run long? I got a 33 x 30 and when I got home I measured the inseam and it's 32"!

    The tag says "rinsed denim" but the wash instructions say "dry clean only". Does anyone know if they'll shrink a lot if I wash them? I thought since they are "rinsed", they wouldn't shrink.

    Last question, anyone know a good tailor in San Francisco that can hem these?

    Thanks for any info/ advice.

    I get the impression they oversize the inseams on these. Whether that's for shrinkage or just some flashy cuffing trend, I don't know. Perhaps both.

    I saw a post on these over on SuFu, and at least one person seemed to indicate that they're oversized to accomodate for shrinking. Whether that's accurate or not, again, I don't know.

    I never saw these on the site before... http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...389&pid=445263 Are those real selvage denim? $70 for selvage denim is a pretty good deal!
    It is, but notice the selection's limited. A few SF'ers have also complained of the boxy fit of the slim selvage so you'd probably want to try before buying.

    That's true...
    I'll check it out next time I head to Gap.

    Yes, those are real selvage. Are those the Gough? When I was in-store they were $99

    I believe I tried on the 30s, so I guess I "sized down" 2. (all my other jeans are 30 so whatever that tells you.)

    the goughs I tried on were redline not that funky selvage that the one on the website has. From the picture those seem considerably slimmer than the goughs but pictures can be decieving I guess.

    Those straight legs don't look that bad. I've never seen them in store though, but I haven't checked for a while. I'd get a 30" inseam instead of the usual 32" so I don't have to cuff to show off that funky selvage crap. The thigh could be a bit more fitted. The Morrisons have the same selvage, but a tapered fit. They were heavy, and I had to size down 3, and they still fit like crap. The Gough had better denim, better selvage, but again, I would have had to size down 3, maybe even 4 to make them look good on me. Also, very boxy as noted. Could be good if you like looser fitting, straight leg jeans.
