Anyone have the field trouser cargos here? Trying to gather some data and decide whether to go with those or find another cargo

Just got in my newest purchase. Cast 2 coast 2, love the wash but they fit a lot baggier than my other cast 2 I have (nimbus) especially around the calf/shin area. Both same size. Anyone know why this is the case? Is the coast 2 meant to be a slightly baggier fit, not as much of a fan. Pics below comparing the 2.

Really appreciate that JE included 28s in the Daze restock. Looking forward to seeing the new washes in hand!

I think that the nimbus are known to fit significantly slimmer than other Cast 2 washes.

All clothing has acceptable size tolerances
Here is a good article from Hamilton shirts
For example, in denim in general, the accepted size tolerance in the waist is usually +/- 1/2 inch. What that means, is if you went to the Levi’s store and tried on two pairs of the exact same 501s, they both would fit slightly different. This factor is just taking into account variations in the cutting and sewing process. You also have to take into consideration the processes that occurs after the piece is cut & sewn, specifically the wash process. Remember this denim is made by hand, so every piece is going to be unique. And as was mentioned certain denim washes (coast vs nimbus) and certain runs end up fitting tighter or looser than others. If you are really in love with the cast 2 coast 2, it might be worth trying another same size and one down. If you can get to a store that carries it, even better.
From your picture, I think they both look good and honestly the the way your coast 2 fit is more in line with denim trends currently. 🤷🏽‍♂️

Thanks for the reply man, definitely understand that. However the difference is extremely noticeable when u lay them on top of each other. Waist fits pretty much exactly the same however just honestly seems like a different cut all together. The nimbus is literally tight around my calf where as I’d say this feels like baggy round there not even fitted to it. And yeah get that most people would probably prefer the baggier look nowadays but I don’t so yeah. Got these proxied from someone as I live in the uk so can’t return and try another pair and wouldn’t size down as the waist I don’t think would allow me to. Just disappointed🤷🏻‍♂️

Put that sewing machine in your pic background to use and stitch up some calf huggers!
