Best jeans I have ever bought!
Get off your ass...

...and get some Matix Miner Pants. These are guaranteed one of my favorite pair of pants. They are unbelievably durable. I fell skating downhill on a part of really rough blacktop, and skidded across these pants. I thought, for sure, there would be a huge gash. Instead, my skin underneath was torn apart and soaked in blood, but these pants still looked brand new, minus the dust. Shocked! Just don't wash them if you don't need to. They do shrink 1-2 sizes after washing and drying, so size up if you wish. The button fly isn't at all that bad, I actually prefer them over zipper.

No lace belt? Do they still have stretch at least?
There is no lace belt on the newer Matix "Miner" Denim Jeans this year. At least, the pairs I ordered did not have them. The Fresh Deep and Harvest Raw washes are made of 99% cotton and 1% spandex. The Dry Stress wash is 100% cotton
Also, if you go to http://www.matixclothing.com/ you can download their Fall 2012 Catalog (you may have to right click and go to "Save Link As..") and it breaks down their new clothing line down for you (sizing, etc.). That should help
dude, sooooo chill....
I bought these jeans last fall, ( 2011 ), and have worn them any where from 3-4 times a week. They are worth $50 easy. I've been looking for another color of these exact jeans in my size, so I can have two different colors of them. Best pair of jeans I have ever owned.
These fit a little baggier than I expected but I still like them.
These fit great and look better. Made very well too, nothing has even started to fall apart in close to a year
Button Fly You Say?
Button flies are cool. Don't let anyone tell you any differently. Perfect fit, opens a bit at the cuff, and the deep rinse is smoove.

Hey Mike 3970707,
The New Deep Rinse color of the Matix Miner Denim Pant does have a mix of 1% spandex and 99% cotton.
Climbs well too
I can't get enough of the Miners. (Skrizza color)
Can someone plz tell me the leg opening...
Can someone plz tell me the leg opening on a size 34?
Great...just add some spandex, please?
Love em. Unfortunately I got used to the Analog Dylan jeans before these and got used to the stretch that spandex provides...but these are great. Solid fit, and its raw denim so it will wear into something perfect for you after a few months.
Edit - they're not all raw denim. Just the ones that saw raw are...the rest are either a slight spandex blend or 100% cotton.
Would just kill for a spandex blend of these, but I'm very happy with them.
I bought a couple pairs of these for my guy who is about 6' 170lb(?). They are a slimmer fit but def not skinny. They hug the bum just enough to show it off :)
Love the look, the fit, all of it. And they are his new favorite jeans now! He says they're very comfortable and he too likes the look. Good all around! I definitely recommend these pants, especially for the price found on w.m. - doesn't get better than that.
BUT if you get these - beware of stares and butt grabs. Yeah. Your butt will look that good.
5 star quality
Comfortable, breathable, durable, fancy, casual. Basically sums it up.
no pure black 38?

the only jeans I wear
I've been rocking Matix since I got my first pair of relaxed fit Triumphs back in 2004. My GF urged me to try the Miners since they were the next "more fitted" fit and they are perfect-loose enough that you don't look like a girl but not baggy enough that you look like a Canadian ledge wigger. Just regular-fit man jeans and now that they've added the 1% spandex they are even better for skating. I'm up to about 7 pairs of Miners. Buy with confidence, worth every penny.
It's a given that if a pair of pants comes with a shoelace belt, the comfort level soars into the upper levels of relaxing bliss. Comfortable, loose fit, and durable, any pair of Matix pants guarantees satisfaction. Hell, why not use em for pajama pants?
Loved these so much that I came back for another pair in a different color.
Got a pair on Whiskey Militia. I was so excited when they came (2 whole days after my order was placed - awesome in and of itself) that I ripped off my pants in my kitchen and tried em on. I loved them so much I kept them on instead of putting back on my regular pants, which are now no longer my regular pants. Now they're my "Not-As-Good-As-The-Matix-Miner" pants. They fit true to size, I think: I'm 5' 10", 155 lbs, and the 31' is the cat's pajamas! I only bought one pair since I was nervous about buying pants online, but now I know the error of my ways. Next time they come 'round, I'll buy a pair for every day of the week. Or 2 for each day, since no sooner than I put on these glorious trousers do I make a mess in them because they're so damn comfortable. And oh how they stretch! They look way sexy, and they're comfortable, and they're stretchy enough to show off your moves to all the lady gymnasts. Did I mention how sexy they are?
Not skinny jeans at all...
Alright.. to all the people complaining about them being "skinny hipster jeans".
READ! Do some research. Know your body.
I wear a 32 in Levi 501's and that is a perfect straight leg fit, but most of my pants being 4 or 5 years old they are more for urban exploring and painting then when you are trying to look at least some what presentable.
I got a pair of these in 32 and they were a little too snug on my thighs and I knew they would only get worse with washing.
Easy fix! Size up to 34 (I could have went with 33 probably) and they are nice a loose without falling down my butt.
Quit whining and do your research. Not every product is going to be made and designed for JUST YOU.
The best part of retail is that you can ALWAYS return something. So there is really no loss.
Thanks to dogfunk for the easy exchange and to Whiskey Militia for the great $19.99 price tag. Clothes are usually the last of my concern in today's economy so its nice to be able to get yourself something decent at a good price.
What's that smell?
I really like the jeans, they fit great (not so skinny), however they stink like vinegar. I thought the smell would go away after a couple of washes, but after about 3 months of owning them, not the case. In fact, this seems to be the problem with both pairs of dark colored denim I've purchased from dogfunk. Be aware, if this happens to you, don't be optimistic and think the smell will fade cause it doesn't.
