Been looking at the Acne Mic or Max in raw or rigid. Think they're worth the money? If I'm looking in that price range, what others should I be checking out? Looking for a fit like this:

excuse the slight derailment:

Mauro please let me know when 5EP comes out with a raw (post wash measurements)/OW:

low waist rise (9inch or lower),
slim thigh (11 inch upper thigh +- .25 inch),
straight leg (8 inch knee/8 inch hem +- .25 inch)
inseam 34 inch or longer


or is 5EP always going to stick with more classic styles?
or is the next collab hopefully somewhere in that ballpark of measurements above? (i know they are not sf type measurements)

thanks.


or if Spurr has something like this please let me know

I doubt they will ever come out with a jean < 9" rise.

we will make a jean more toward your like-ing.
It will be similar to the SFX5EP jean but the rise will be an inch lower in front.
The legs will be tweeked as well .

I have both and the Mic is probably my favorite pair of jeans at the moment. I would highly recommend the Mic - it is a great low rise, straight leg jean. It is very versatile and easy to dress up or down.

The Max is a bit too skinny for my liking but it has cooler stiching than the Mic.

Acne denim is more of a summer weight which is great living in Australia. If you live in a cooler climate it might be worth looking into something with heavier denim however.

Not exactly, but the Spurr Pipe Rigid that mauro carries has very similar measurments:
size 31: waist 16, front 9.5, back 13.5, thigh 10.5, knee 8.25, hem 8, inseam 34.25

It's going to be near impossible to find a jean like that with a <9" rise -- seriously, I'd start looking at women's jeans if you're set on that.
