Today, for the first time, I saw some Barba chinos and jeans. They were so poorly made and of bad taste that I will question all their other products in the future. Why don't they just stick to shirts and ties?

I have some Barba dress pants which I like and which are well made. Some of the more casual pants and denims looks pretty bad. The stuff with 'Jomud' on it.

I have a pair of Barba chinos that are super nice. Very heavy fabric and excellent detailing.

Barba jeans are hideous, indeed. Look like dad jeans. Have no experience with pants, but LOVE Barba shirts and ties.

Yes, it wrote Jomud. Terrible stuff that looks like clothes from Primark.

With a name like Barba Jomud, how could it be wrong?

Barba jeans are merely a pale imitation, a shadow, of the real thing.

Disagree in part. While not pretty, they are well made. Have many Barba shirts and last year had a pair of black Barba jeans. They were well made; but, similar to Incotex chinos, not stylish. Have since moved on to stylish Japanese denim and Cucinelli jeans.

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.
