Very Impressed with the Ezekiel 303
The 303 Dark Indigo is first item I've ever purchased made by Ezekiel. I just got these but I have to say I'm impressed! The 303 is definitely a slim fitting jean throughout, but still plenty comfortable and looks killer.
Fit: I'm 6 feet, 150 lbs and always wear a 32. The waist on these were tight at first, which had me worried. No need for a belt, that's for sure. But after a few hours it loosened up and became comfy. They have a low-ish rise, which isn't uncomfortable but can be constricting when running up stairs. Definitely not enough room in the crotch for my taste. I imagine skating in these pants would be tough. The 2% stretch is a lifesaver though, really making these things comfy.
Finish: the Dark Indigo color is a heavy over-dye and looks damn near black. A little scratchy and not soft on the outside. I imagine after wearing them day after day, which I tend to do with jeans, they will wear amazingly. Gotta give em some time. Very high quality denim and the details are killer. Good riveted rear pocket details and double-duty coin pocket that you can't see in the pictures.
Overall I'm super impressed with these jeans, and I've worn A LOT of jeans - both good and crappy. These will be in heavy rotation for sure.
