Left Field – 1 Month In

Left Field Basic Straight Slims | 1 Month In

Seriously, these jeans are like a gift that keeps on giving. Every day the fit and feel is better than than it was the day before, despite the fact that both were pretty much perfect from the get-go. It’s like a freaking perpetual motion machine of awesome. I’ve been wearing them nonstop since my last post, short of one or two pant-free Sundays at home. There is already some very nice fading happening in the crotch, particularly the marks caused by the button fly. The wallet indentation is also coming in nicely, as are the creases in the back of the knees. Also of note is how unbelievably soft these things have already gotten. Historically, my experience has been that it takes at least three months (though usually more) for raw denim to feel, well, not terrible. Amazingly, at only a little over 30 days in, these already feel great against the skin. Not to come-off like a total shill, but these really are the best jeans I’ve ever owned.

    these are certainly going to be my next pair of denim. I’ve been oggling over them for months. DD should get some other people to wear the slub denim, and the other 70′s style raw

    Wow, those are looking nice. I’m currently working on some New Standards and looking for a new pair of denim. Did you go TTS?

    Question: Those pockets look REALLY big. Is that true or do you just carry a small wallet? It looks like the pockets are large enough to have some sagging.
