    There's something unwholesome about this site, like undressing the dude...why?
    That part is awesome.

    I initially liked the idea of another affordable jean and I thought that I'd be able to get past the company name if the jeans were great. Now that I've seen the site, I must say I'm pretty disappointed.

    Comments:
    - They offer nothing out of the ordinary in terms of cut
    - I like the streaky denim, despite the fact that it looks ugly on their pictures on the site.
    - The logo selvage is really lame.
    - The selvage coin pocket is overkill
    - I like that they offer a natural indigo jean
    - The vintage indigo is ugly
    - Hardware looks very uninteresting
    - Leather patch looks pretty crappy on most of the jeans.

    They seem like they would be a good jean to get people started for cheap though. I'd love to see how they fade.

    I'm keeping an eye on the Army Denim coming in the Fall. I should check out their store when I go to Canada in a few months.

    I saw it perhaps where Denimbar saw it, at Blue [trade show] in Jan.

    I am not the most sophisticated denim guy but I liked it, esp the irregular weaves.

    The proprietor said he was going to be in Blue in Green (I have not verified this). This would be their lowest priced denim, I think. He was from a Canadian clothing family connected to Bon Marche [what is this in Canada?]. He said one way he kept the price low was by avoiding all distressing. Everything was raw or one-wash.

    So even if it doesn't have every one of the details you want, it's a kind of gateway drug to the heavier stuff in Japanese denim.

    Did they get those nasty shoes from the Yoox model? Ugh.

    Some of the cuts look decent so if the fabric and construction is okay it could be an all right beater pair for the price. Not loving the brand image though.

    the slim model looks like the nudie rr or ss fit but with more traditional pockets

    something about the crotch looks a bit weird on all of them

    i'd buy a pair, but i hate exposed selvage on coin pockets

    The hardware is Not Japanese and Brandon wouldn't specify where it came from the patch on one is recycled paper and the rest are leather.
    There is NO natural indigo but one jean is a veggie dye.
    All and all would you wear this or APC?

    PC, tho it looks like they increased their prices just recently.

    I love my new standards.

    How sure are you that it's Japanese Denim? From what I've read on this thread at $25 USD a pop for FOB, it sounds like it's Chinese or possibly Turkish.
