    Maybe they are meant for big guys. I picked up a pair of these at shopjake, and I like them. They don't fit quite as well as my Earnest Sewn Fulton's (my gold standard for fit,) but fit better than my 5EP straight rigid and much much better than all the other premium jeans I have tried, which is a LOT. With a touch lower rise and a slightly slimmer lower leg they would be perfect. The denim is pretty unique too.
    I was tempted to pick up a pair you had but it was a size or two too small. [​IMG] Back to what LAG said, I forgot that the "THIS IS SELVAGE" details to the jean also turned me off a lot. Could you post pics? I'm curious to see what it'd look like on a skinny guy since I'm more with Harris that it was probably meant for bigger guys.

    Costs $168.00 at J. Crew, got on ebay for $42.00 shipped. They are new. I know they aren't AE's or anything but they are going to be everyday beaters while I am in college.

    He goes to a commuter college though which apparently is nothing like an undergraduate university. Mostly older guys on their way to or from work. It should be fine for dressing business casual which seems to be the norm there.

    I've never understood why people buy watches from clothing companies. It's like buying condoms produced by Coca-Cola or a canoe from Honda; sure they may work, but why not just buy something from a company known for their experience in the field? [​IMG]
