I came home today to find my new jeans had arrived. Upon their arrival, I was super excited. They're the Straight Legs. The only other raw denim I have had has been Uniqlo S-002's (current), APC Rescues (years back) and APC NS (for less than two weeks, bought too tight).
After opening these and inspecting them, they are fantastic. The amount of detail that the folks at 3Sixteen put into them definitely shows. From the gunmetal rivets to the super-thick Tanner Goods leather patch (I love it!), these are pure money (....and they don't even know it - haha).
My waist is in between a 33-34, closer to a 33 and I ordered a 32. My thighs are pretty big from lifting weights but I find the fit to be spot-on. While they are a little tight in the waist and thighs, I know they will stretch up to an inch and a half and am not worried about being able to sag (ya gotsta do it).
I will try and take pictures at the end of the week so you guys can get an idea but take my word for it, these are great. The denim is heavy, stiff and the quality is exceptional. The pocket size is great and they definitely have got their signature model at great sizing and pricing points. All in all, this is a great pair of denim. It's my first piece from 3Sixteen and I now am sold. I've always liked their designs, approach and quality of work put in but now that I see first-hand, I will continue to check for new releases, etc.
Also, Self Edge - easy ordering experience, thumbs up.
