@tommo and anyone else who can chime in with advice

1) How is the fabric thickness of the Carbon compared to the Obsidian? I own the Obsidian and felt like they were slightly thicker than the Graphite which is the only other pair I have in JE. I live in a hot climate, so generally love fabrics on the thinner side
2) If I wear a size 30 in Obsidian and Graphite, what would you recommend for Carbon? I heard the Carbon stretches a lot but I don't know how to benchmark it relative to what I have which is the Obsidian and Graphite.
carbon is thinner than obsidian by a while. Very soft and comfortable.
Ive gone true to size with all my denim but some people go down 1 from TTS on carbon.

Ah thanks. Yeah that seems consistent with what I heard. The tricky thing with going on size or not is still what throws me off. Do both the carbon and obsidian start off the same size width length? I notice some jeans have irregularities

Stick with your tts on both. Obsidian will stretch more with time though. Carbons have good bounce back. I would not size down on carbons, you could consider it for the obsidian due to the inevitable stretch in the waist and seat.

@jclark216

They dont hold a candle to the washed graphites, which are the best grey jeans on the market imo. I find they fit a tad slim, the white paint splatters can look pretty cool with white shoes. The wash on them almost resembles more of a pant then a jean. Nice to have in the rotation especially if you picked them up for a good price

Ahhh make sense. Never had grey jeans on my radar until the price. Let me look into the washed graphite’s too. Thanks for the info

Yep I have them. Don’t sleep it’s a fabulous wash, unlike any other grey wash I’ve seen. These and odeons are grail pieces. Took me an age to find a pair.

With respect to the other guy, they’re a lot different to washed graphite’s.

Buy them you will NOT be disappointed

Appreciate the Feedback. I mean they are dumb cheap. Going to cop them and get on a hunt for the washed graphite

Just wrapped up shooting a small editorial for my shop featuring the FW20 collection - would love to hear y'all thoughts!

Shoot was shot on medium format film and double exposed to blend nature with the product.
