The more I wear this jean, the more I love it. What I like is the skinny jean lines, with just enough extra thigh room for me. Doesn't look baggy, but is comfortable, and gets just skinny enough at the bottom. I'd buy another pair, but I'd really like something a bit heavier. I also kind of like the higher rise, but that is negotiable. Anything from Kicking Mule maybe? Also, to someone whose had Earnests for a while, how does the denim wear over time, what with it being that light and all?

Hm, how high a rise do you want? Do you not like the 501 repro aesthetic, like the 5EP straights?

As far as durability goes, I think they wear fairly quickly. I have a pair of Fultons that I bought when ES first came out and they started to need repairs after about six months of biweekly wear.

i have a pair of ES hutch....they have stretched considerably over the two years or so that i have had them, but i think i've grown a little bit as well!

as for wearing, they hold up pretty well, i just wash them inside out after a few wears and hang em to dry

Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but I have the same question as the OP. I'm looking for a jean with a Fulton-like fit (reasonable thigh room with a slim straight leg), plain backpockets and raw or one-wash/rinse, but with a heavier/more substantial denim, preferably full selvedge. Was considering A.P.C. but I don't want a tapered fit like the NS and the Rescue looks too baggy. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Since this thread, I have actually discovered such a jean: the Acne Mic. I will tell you right off the bat, it's not selvage, and it doesn't get much love here, because it doesn't have the quality to price value ratio that most here require. It is definitely more in the "designer" camp, but without the annoying aesthetics of jeans like RR, TR, D&G, etc. It is as plain as you can get, and the fit is perfect for me: higher rise, fitted shape, straight leg with some thigh room. I would at least try them.

Also, I have seen the Kicking Mule 1980, which I tried a long time ago but they didn't have a 34 length, and I remember having a similar fit though a tiny bit looser than the Fulton.

Ive also fell in love with the Fulton cut. I've been wearing mine for 2 days now and they're great, I could have sized down I guess but for $45 I cant complain
