Hi Everyone - Today Cultizm delivered me a pair of jeans I've been waiting patiently since the SS14 preview came out. Belther 828T Blue Eyecon.
My initial thoughts when I first opened the pkg is hmmmm its just a typical medium blue jean. Which is true to certain extent. But on second look at the jeans I start noticing the little details to this pair. We will get to that later.
The jeans are made out of 65% cotton and 35% Lyocell. I got my typical size 28x30 and it fits nice right out of the box. I guess if you like your jeans super tight you could size down 1 but it will be uncomfortable to start, but i think will stretch out nicely. my 28's now I guess fits me nice but I'm scared it'll stretch out once I wear it longer. I'll keep you posted when I start wearing them next week.
They feel similar to Tepphar 804k because of the Lyocell mix, but they are at no where near as loose as 804k is. The thickness of the denim I would guess is around 10-11oz. Its neither thin or thick. Quite standard. Its thinner than 817H or 888P, but thicker than 804K. Its similar to 818v, 824e and even 801A that I also own.
As you can tell from the photos - this pair is quite contrasty between the faded distressed part vs some other parts of the jeans. Initially I thought they have a very very slight rust patina like 824z or 811p. But after further inspecting I take that back. its barely noticeable so I'd say they don't have it.
The jeans comes pre wrinkled and pre stacked. but it does not have the 3D logo. Comparing to my Belther 824E they are not nearly as wrinkly and unfortunately they do not fit as nice as 824E does. Belther 824E and Shioner 801A ultimately are still best pairs in my opinion when it comes to hugging and wrapping around your body. (here's a review I did on Belther 824E: http://www.denimblog.com/c/t/198780/diesel-belther-824e-black-jeans-detailed-review)
The jeans also have very slight black whiskers similar to what we see at Thavar 886B and 801C.
Overall I do like the jeans but I must say its probably the least loud of the 3 blue eyecon's this season. I believe Krayver 827x & especially Thavar 829B will be much interesting pair to look at.
If you're missing medium blue jeans in your collection I think this is a great pair to own. This pair is quite subtle and it has a very quiet 'wow' factor to it. I will be keeping this pair.
Thanks for reading guys! Let me know if you have any questions about this pair or like me to compare it w/ something else.
