So many people have hated on Element, and yes i am guilty of it too. However, recently they are starting to change their image, at least i think so. They now have Nick Garcia, Boo Johnson, Mark Appleyard, Evan Smith, all really gamazing skaters. I have the Element team pant which is what i wear 90% of the time..so comfy. And when deciding on a pair of denim by Element, i really researched the fit because its somewhat difficult to tell over the internet. I got the Ry denim not too long ago now and i could not be more pleased with this choice i got the Rock color, i think that's it. I absolutely love these pants. Its difficult to describe the fit but they look so sick. I went skating with them for the first time yesterday and dude, i was so stoked. Dylan Rieder said "Comfortable clothes lead to a comfortable life" something like that. I 100% agree. I felt comfy and natural, so, not to brag but i did really well for my first time on a board in a month. I felt good. good vibes in the air, good pants on my body, bad-ass session. They fit kind of like the Arto Quiksilver pants if anyone remembers those, baggier in the thigh but they slim down at the ankle, that might sound weird but they are an amazing fit. Again with all Element pants i wear a 34 normally but get 1 size bigger i promise you. i now wear a 36 and im only 160lbs and 5'11. so yeah, any questions...post em.
