    I know they have a bad rap for being overpriced, having horrible washes and cuts, and just being a little too gaudy in general.

    However, I really like the looks of these. I LOVE the coloring, and the back pockets. The stitching, leather patch, buttons, snaps on the waist, and camo pocket are also pretty neat details, although probably not things 'normal' people are going to notice while you're wearing them.

    How 'bout some pics?

    I can't get over how much I love the rich fading and coloring. My concern, however, it the cut/fit. Most models on factorypeople (and most other sites) don't wear their jeans well, in my opinion. I like my NS, Sven, Mic, and Jim. In other words, fitted from the thighs up.

    I tried on a pair of the slim PRPS and thought the fit was perfectly fine. The wash was too extreme for me though (it wasn't this wash).

    What would you compare it to? How tight was the thigh? Did you size up or down? Details, man!

    Well, the website selling the ones pictured are in the state (damn sales tax!), but are about three hours away. I like them, but they are pretty damn expensive.

    Eventually I might try them, and return them if I don't like them. I'd only be out shipping I guess.

    That wash is seriously cool. I have a feeling it will get better with age.

    I'm not really a fan of the dirty look. I don't mind distressed, but I don't like big brown spots :p

    That's one of the coolest parts man! It blends so well with the different blues. You're just not as [​IMG] as Brian and I [​IMG] EDIT: Upon reading factorypeople's site further, they list the waist on the 32 model as 17.5". If that's accurate, their smallest size (30) will be WAY too huge on me.

    I find it hard to believe that a 32 would measure 35" :p

    And I'd hope you'd remember if you had to size down by three when you tried them on...

    Oh, finally a pair I can wear 30. They're about $100 something on ebay. How much are they for retail?

    $300 bucks for those.

    I thought Superfuture decided that all those PRPS on eBay were fake? Even if they're not, they're still a different cut.


    Well, I'd remember if they were 3 sizes too big. That's some APC stuff right there :p I'd say that I probably went for true size, heh.

    What Onistukas are those? I was not aware of the existence of the Italian flag colorway!
