    If anyone is interested, here's some shitty fit pics of the Squires in size 32.

    Thanks breakz.
    I like them. The stitching is kinda shitty in some spots and I have a problem with one of the prongs not coming through the top button, so it gets caught on the button hole sometimes. I might just file it down.
    Here's some more denim porn while I nitpick relatively inexpensive jeans.
    nice denim, iffy construction

    see the prong on the bottom of the button

    and 2 good buttons with the 2 prongs going through them

    ^ Pics aren't shitty by any measures. Thanks for posting.


    Interesting observations. The buttons on my Hammies (in black, btw:inlove) don't have the same issues, I'd agree, however, that the stitching is not perfect. Then again, I like imperfections here and there, having (and loving) a few Engineered Garments pieces taught me that.

    These are also hand-sewn garments made in limited numbers in a factory in the US...

    PM me if the buttons become a real problem for you.

    seriously tho, the jeans look good on you. me, I'd file the prong down...I've found many garments need a bit of personal attention, regardless of make, to get all the issues sorted to one's content

    Well, seeing as how Friday was the sale and Chad isn't in the office over the weekend, why not shoot him another one?

    ^ they look good. I have a few pair on the way. I wanted to get them hemmed but account for shrinkage. Anyone know much much the inseam will shrink on these after first wash/soak?

    They look a tad big. Did you get them in your usual size?

    They don't look bad, though. Hemmed I think they'd look really killer for an anti-fit look but I'm just making sure that's what you're going for.

    Rioni, they're sanforized so shrinkage will be minimal. Like I tell everyone else, while your jeans are wet be sure to pull on the legs to stretch back the shrinkage.

    I think the Routes actually work better as an "anti fit relaxed" jean because they're kinda slim as it is and the lightweight denim just gives it that 'relax' vibe. I like a heavier stiff denim for tighter fits and the Routes are great for a comfortable casual jean, imo

    i am usually a 29-30 and i got a 30 because that was the only size left. yes they are somewhat loose but do you think after hemming the bagging at different places will get better? i thought routes were more of a relaxed fit anyway correct me if im wrong.
