    So, what's the general consensus on them? I assume there is one, though given that there were only three thread on the forum that mention the brand, perhaps not...

    I actually like the Edun line more than the Loomstate line for clothing. The jeans are quite serviciable, but not spectacular, imo.

    They're pretty cool. There was an "organic fashion show" at my school and I got a look at a lot of Edun stuff. Damn that shit is HUGE for its size.

    As might have been guessed, I asked because I recently bought a pair. Two, actually, though one is going back. I was looking for some lightweight summer jeans - I abhor khakis, and linen/trop wool aren't always the look I want - and Saks recently had a "secret sale" for cardholders so I went to look at their jeans. I ended up buying the Eclipse model in a dark wash. On the way home I stopped at Off5th, where I had a 30% off coupon, and found a pair I like better, something worker pant with ur-PDC style slash front pockets - and, alas, a 5th pocket that like my HL classic cut raws is too small for a Razr - and nicely done distressing. They were also $50 and not $120. So I'm keeping the Off5th ones and returning the Eclipse. Also, I figure (perhaps stupidly) that with the small amount of spandex in the worker jeans they might last longer than other lightweight jeans.

    I'll have to get used to the back pockets, because the fanciest design on any of my other jeans is the PDC flying J stitch.

    And big is right! I normally wear a 36 and in the Eduns I needed a 33.

    They won't break either way, unless you do some really intense activity in it. They're good quality, regardless of hte spandex. I'm not familiar with the names of the washes but the price sure is right.
