    I'm sad the cut on these didn't work for me! The pair I had woud up being way too big in the waist and seat, but great everywhere else. A properly fitting pair would have been too slim in the thighs.

    These will most definitely fade like jeans, but not as noticeably. I have a pair of NdG khaki fine twill jeans that probably have ~4 months of wear, and they are fading pretty well.

    Longtime lurker, infrequent poster, but I'd be in this if a 28 is still available by the time you get down this far.

    Funny thing, I tried to get a pair of these through Context, thinking "those would be my go-to pants to wear all the time" but 28, 29, 30 were already gone...

    I was told 28-30 were sold out company wide by an SA at RRL in NY. I asked him to check the stock in all the stores

    No real surprise, they are seriously cool.

    I'd try 29 too (my true waist) if those aren't all spoken for, but according to the guy at Context these run large, so doubtful of the fit.

    I bought two pairs in size 34 but only need one. If anyone wants a pair right now, pm me. Looking to sell for what I paid. I plan to return one pair but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    They fade in a similar fashion. The tan canvas will turn lighter at the points of contact (wallet, cell phone, pocket openings, etc)

    I feel that they generally run about a size big. I am assuming there will be shrinkage, but not as severe as a unsanforized raw jean.

    Gentlemen,

    Expect them to stretch out a bit in the waist after some wear.

    I am a 29 waist and I bought a 28. At first the waist was very snug and now it's a little loose.
