Due to the intrigue I decided to set up this thread using @Denim Collectors reviews as a template (minus the wall - you know which one) 😉
So when I initially saw these, I wondered why the hell they were £300. Then I managed to have a look in store and it was clear that they were pitched at this price due to the material. Upon first view, they appear to be another dark ash similar to that of 886A and 8W3 but it is only when you look at them in a different light that you manage to see the details.
Here are some pictures in varied lighting.
The composition of these is 95% cotton, 4% elasterell and 2% elastane. I took my usual Tepphar size which is a 30 and I am happy with the way they fit. They have an onvious stretch but return to their usual shape after wear. The wash feels almost like it has a waxed glaze over it, very similar to the Superbia 60E from the Black Gold collection. You can see that on close inspection, these are not just your average dark wash. The website pictures show a dirty tint to them, which is evident, but not overbearing when you see them in a good lighting. Too much and I think it may kill the wash.
They feel substantial (not too thin) and I particularly like the details such as the fading along the outer sides of the leg. These are an ideal pari of dark jeans that will go with most top half pieces. Im wearing them at work today with an All Saints Denim Jacket, DBG Henley and a pair of ASOS Chelsea Boots. I feel these could also be worn in a more casual or formal combination. Depending on the occasion.
These ones really show how the lighting affects the colours....
Overall, I really like this pair. Having said that, I am a bit of a sucker for jeans in my cut that are expensive as long as they are not too loud. As soon as I saw these in store they went onto my list, so I probably would have paid as much as £200 for them during the sales. £300 is too much IMO. As it turns out, I got them for around £100 on ebay.de (Sorry @Quettingen) and I am happy with that price.
Any questions - get in touch. Hope this has been useful.
