    Can anybody comment on the fit, styling, and quality (for the Hutch cut)? If I wear a 32 in PDC, should I go for 32 in ES as well? And are there any fakes circulating yet?

    It's a pretty slim and low-rise cut, definitely moreso than PDC's GTO. I wear a GTO 32 and had to sell a pair of 32 Hutch's because I felt it was a little too tight, mainly in the thighs. I do like my jeans slightly relaxed though (I prefer their Hemingway cut), but then again I haven't compared them to a 33 Hutch.

    I am pretty sure that there are fakes out there, check out this site and tell me it doesn't raise your BS flags. I would also recommend purchasing one size up from PDC.

    $70 shipping. That is just outrageous. Also, gottal love the Terms and Conditions:

    "...the company does not have the ability to physically inspect goods offered for sale by their suppliers. While the company believes that all items offered on funkymonkeyunltd.com are Grade A, authentic and licensed brands, this can not be guaranteed. The company will be held harmless in the event that the goods received are not as represented. "

    In other words: We are selling fakes and if you are foolish enough to buy from us, you have no recourse.

    I can confirm what aybojs says since I am the one who bought the 32" Hutches from him. The thighs are quite slim and the rise is very low. The cut is excellent for me as I am thin: 6", 160 lbs, 31.5" waist, 32" inseam and long of torso (if that helps you make up your mind). From reading the board I gather that the Earnest Sewn denim is on the thin side. I don't have anything to compare it to but judging from the pair I have, that is true. I've never seen the PDCs, unfortunately, so I can't give you any comparison there either.

    The ES are slimmer, but I feel pretty comfortable in a 33 in both the Hutch and the PDC GTO. Otherwise, the Hutch is pretty damn cool: the wash and detailing are more sophisticated than the GTO, which says something, and the denim is a little more rigid, rather than the sublime softness of its PDC counterpart. My only real gripes with the Hutch are the slightly lower placement of the honeycomb whiskers on the back of the knees and the lack of a coin pocket--the GTO's is perfect for stuffing my phone or keys into.

    Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with either.

    I would agree, great jeans. I have the Hutch09's in 34. In hindisght I could go with a 33, but still great. Slim fit and low rise is true.

    The Hutch is a really good fit, although the boot cut is a little too much for me (as with the GTO). I have skinnier legs, so it wouldn't seem out of the ordinary for a big bootleg to look odd on me. I am especially interested in the selvage jeans that they apparently make. I am curious to know if the denim is heavier than the normal jeans.

    I have never seen the Filson in person (only seen Hutch) - can anyone else tell me if the fit is as slim as Hutch, and if the denim is heavier? I assume Earnest Sewn uses Kurabo denim, which is fine, albeit a little light.

    I have a pair of the selvedge earnest sewn's. They are the filsons and they are not as slim as the hutch. I don't know if they will shrink or not though when they are washed. I'd say they fit more simmilarly tp the hemmingway with less of a bootcut.

    Really? I found the Filson cut as slim as the Hutch's. Maybe a little more so.

    I haven't tried any filsons that weren't raw. Maybe these will shrink up a lot when washed. I hope not though, these fit about just right.

    They won't shrink very much at all, they're sanforized I'm certain.

    I just recently tried several Filsons that were not raw. They look like shit on me (as does the Hutch).

    If they don't shrink then why do they make the inseam like 40 inches? (I don't know exactly how long they really were, but when I tried them on, I had to roll them up like a foot)

    Isn't that just the style usually associated with raw denim? Super-long inseam so you either bunch them up or roll them?

    The length will shrink up about 2" on sanforized jeans.. sorry if I misunderstood, I thought you were talking about the fit of hte legs or the waist (which will barely shrink at all). 40" still seems incredibly long. 35" or 36" is typical for selvage jeans because a lot of people like to cuff them up at the bottom to show off the selvage.
