What I really loved about this jean was the added flex. It’s a slim style, but the added flex made this style incredibly comfortable to wear. I’ve tried a lot of straight leg jeans and they are either too slim that they resemble a skinny jean, or they’re too straight that the overall look is baggy. I liked how roomy this pair felt, yet it still had a refined look. It didn’t give off a baggy look at all. This jean is comprised of 11oz Italian soft hand denim – 92% cotton, 6% poly, 2% Elastane. It has whiskering around the front pockets, and is hand sanded & stonewashed for a medium indigo fade. I really loved the fading down the legs.
The jean has a 10” rise, 18” at the knee, 16.5” leg opening & 35” inseam. I usually go for the 34” inseam when purchasing jeans but prefer this inseam a lot more. I’m 6’4 and I thought this length was perfect. The ankles of this jean have a little flex in them too, which helps wrap around your shoes.
I’m wearing a size 34 waist, which is my usual size in denim. I did notice that the waist was a tad big, and not as snug. I usually wear a belt whenever I wear jeans, so this loose waistband wouldn’t bother me. I also prefer to have a looser fit around the waist, as opposed to a tighter fit. I don’t like when my denim feels too tight in the waist or crotch area. It just makes me feel uncomfortable. I feel a size 33 would’ve been too tight for me, and uncomfortable. That’s just my personal preference though.
The wash is a medium indigo fade and it’s named “Big Drakes Flex 4 year”. Props to “Big Drake” whoever he is, because he designed a pretty rad wash. I like the medium indigo wash more than a light-blue wash. I always feel a medium to darker wash looks more put together and expensive than a lighter washed jean.
Agave Denim is made in America and hand crafted in California. I always prefer American made products. An added bonus is that they were hand-crafted in California, where I was born (San Diego to be exact).
