    IMO, they're screaming "metrosexual." The button on the fly is HUGE! The distressing also doesn't seem very practical to me - I couldn't see jeans ever fading in that matter. Can't tell much in terms of cut as I've never seen these before in person, but I would stay away from them.

    The back pockets are also way out there. And not in a Corpus-cool sorta way.

    Yep - I already decided they looked kind of stupid. Plus, the seller doesn't take PayPal - what's with that?????

    Just surprised they hadn't been discussed before if Beckham was wearing them.

    If Beckham was to jump off a bridge, would you...nm...

    Honestly, those jeans look like crap. I wouldn't wear them even if you pay me.


    If you paid me with a new Spruce hoodie, a really cool spring jacket I've been looking at, and a pair of 5EP bootcuts to erase the shame, I would. But I'm a cheap(ish) clotheswhore.

    Sorry, bad pun. Could not resist.

    Well no, but seriously, some like Beckham, for example, could start wearing them, then all of the sudden popularity picks up and they're in every store and then of course the first thing a shopper does when they see jeans they've never heard of is hit up the SF! So yeah, it surprises me too that they've never been brought up.

    I’ve been seeing a lot of Take Two lately. There is only one store in my town that carries Nudies, and they have tons of Take Two. Much of it seems to be on sale. I just kind of assumed they were some cheapo crap housebrand that was intended to be marked down from the beginning. Haven’t examined them closely though, so I have no idea if they are any good.
