Hey everyone,

it seems like Loomstate isn't mentioned in as many threads as some other brands like APC or Nudie, etc. but they're still premium denim right?

there are 2 items on eBay that are extreeeeeemely well priced -- $54.99 & $59.99. the sales end in like 2 days or 1 day, so i'll need some feedback ASAP!

the seller is an online store called "Dress in Style" they seem to be reputable.

i hesitate to post the actual links as i don't want someone here to buy them before me. haha. hopefully that wouldn't happen though. but ... my question is this:

1 - Are "Loomstate" good quality jeans?
2 - How are they sized? If I'm a typical 34" waist, will their 34" be right for me?
3 - The styles: "Mission" and "Hectare". Does anyone know anything about these styles -- how they fit, are they loose/fitted, etc. do they stretch alot? will they be pre-washed, etc.


thanks soooo very much to anyone who can give me a hand here!

Overpriced jeans. They may be environmentally friendly,but the denim is paper-thin and "filmsy"

Ridiculous. I found the pairs you're talking about in under fifteen seconds.

okay -- so then since you're looking right at them, could you give me some advice about those jeans?

i've already ruled out the Hectare style -- i think they're pretty loose-fitting looking.

Loomstates are not bad but not great either. I'd hold off, you're likely to be disappointed.

Loomstate are well built and use good quality materials yes ..
They are about 1" bigger than the tag says .. Then again maybe not - I put mine on after taking a shower in them and let them stretch ..
so in referance to #2 - yes they stretch a little lol
Dont know about their styles - they are all prewashed except for one or two raw that they make ..
