I bought these jeans last week and received them yesterday. Tried them on but felt that they were just a bit too baggy in the thighs for me (I have skinny legs its horrible). Anyways I felt the cut on these was similar to the new standards and the the quality seems excellent and I would love to keep them but I am more interested in something tighter. I wear a 28 in APC New Standards and the 30 in Julian Reds seems perfect for that waist. Tight but will definitely loosen up with with wear. Looking to trade for: Nudie: Slim Jims 29x34 (will consider 30x34) Acne: 29x34 or 30x34 And other slim fit jeans around 29 or 30 waist If you have any questions feel free to post. I dont have pictures right now but after countles threads you should know what these look like. If you realllllllly want pictures I will do my best at getting a camera.
