    Maybe you should buy them, take pictures, and then decide that you don't want them any more and return them.
    Eh, too much work... they weren't really anything special -- just a very solid, well-made raw denim like RRLs or something... Nice and stiff, deep blue color, selvage... but the patch shouldn't add $500 to the price, if you ask me... it was a cool patch though. Just imagine no patch at all, but then orange thread sewn around the perimeter of where the patch would be if it were there. Like a "ghost patch" or something like that... the good thing about the jeans is that you'd be the only one wearing them -- you'd never run into someone else wearing a pair of Hermès jeans. So you could have the excusivity factor going on... but if you really want exclusivity, you could plunk down $1,660 USD for these: http://www.japanblue.co.jp/denimhouse/item/50.html

    Bottega Veneta did a lot of jeans this season...passed by their store in Landmark mall and the menswear mannequins wore jeans in a loose-ish straight leg style that was reminiscent of workwear. Interesting to see somone present such a contradictory fashion statement...high end material used to produce something of a low end aesthetic. Something about the duality of something like that I find interesting in fashion, even though it doesn't exactly generate a feeling of authenticity.

    WTF? That's a lot of bread for a pair of jeans that maybe two or three internet nerds will give you props for. There's got to be a thousand more useful applications for that money, get real. $250, 300 bucks for a pair of premium selvage jeans, fine. $750? Give me a break

    +1,000,000. What the fuck.

    I had a quick look at these jeans at the Sydney Hermes store today. I'd echo amerikajinda's comments - they are nice quality denim although they were nowhere near as rigid as APC NS; they almost feel as though they have been washed. No arcuates or any branding other than the silver rivets to distinguish your A$940 (about US$880!) Hermes jeans from your A$200 APC jeans.

    The selvedge on them however looks weird compared to most other jeans I have seen - very thick, long orange stitches. They almost look fake, as though they've tried to make them as obvious as possible, but at that price I'm sure they're not.

    I picked up those jeans 4 weeks back. My personal opinion is: They are a shade better than LV jeans. I love both of them, though.

    Awesome!!! That's what I'm talking about -- the "hidden" patch -- with the Hermès leather patch on the inside and the orange thread on the outside where the patch would be... awesome! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    sounds a bit like Jean Shop, with their very blatant orange selvedge that inner tag is cool....the cut is probably very relaxed I'd imagine

    They have them at the Hermes near me on the mannequin, and they look pretty relaxed. The cut looks like something a typical 50 year old would wear. Maybe they look different in person, or they have different cuts, but what I saw wasn't appealing at all. I keep meaning to go in there, but the store closes before the mall does, and I never seem to make it in time.

    Let's be real; less than 5% of all Hermes dollars comes from buyers under 40. Considering the average young Hermes buyer buys a single $150 tie, and the avg 50 yr old Hermes buyer buys a $5k bag, it might be closer to 1% The jeans are for old men
