    I've got a pair of their relaxed fit, and they are unbelievable. A month in, and I've worn them every day (even to bed, twice). Whodini has it right on page 2 as to the details. Really thoughtful fit (perfect rise and proportions), great denim color and quality. The orange details are absolutely great, and from the worn in pairs I saw in-store, they age gracefully. The service in store was really good. Every one I saw received expert advice. Sharry and Eric (the owner) were attentive, without being obtrusive in any way. They advised me to size down one more size, and they were right on. I'm a 34, bought a 33, and probably should have gone 32, maybe 31. The belts are also really well done (I'm buying one this weekend), and I wish I could afford the aged leather shirts and jackets in store. This company flat out deserves your business, and I"m a quality freak in every respect.

    I'd tell you to buy the jeans, but I don't want the secret to get out!

    I'm sure you'd size down like you normally would with the same cut: 2 for stretch to fit, 1 for fit OTR.

    I bought a denim jacket from their store in January. I love it. Great fit, same sort of detailing mentioned by Who about the jeans. The orange contrast stitching really pops out and at first I was a little unsure about it, but it grew on me and now it is one of the jackets' best features.

    Again, you'd need to size down. I'm usually between M and L in shirts/ts, and usually go L on jackets, but I got an M. I was seriously considering S, but it was just a bit too high and tight in the pits ... still, it would have probably stretched out and worked, giving a slimmer fit. Even the M is slim on me, but not tight.

    The belts are also really well done (I'm buying one this weekend), and I wish I could afford the aged leather shirts and jackets in store. This company flat out deserves your business, and I"m a quality freak in every respect.

    So true. Their leathers are AMAZING, jackets, shirts, belts ... just damn expensive. Definitely a business that deserves love and support.
