I'm a bit on the heavy side...5'11 and a half and 200 pounds.... so I don't rock skinny jeans. Period. I've worn them once,and the horrid memories still remain with me to this day.
I was rocking a pair of WeSC Marwins for awhile, but was looking for a new pair of fresh denim to cop...something in a different fit from the standard straight jeans.
I get on Dogfunk awhile back, and I spot the RVCA jeans in a raw colour (The ones with the Gold stitching, not the Mr. Right Raw) ones...and I think...wow, really good jeans. But I'm not sold on the slim fit yet...I still am apprehensive, and was considering getting just another pair of WeSC's.
I decide to take a chance, and I ended up buying the RVCA Romero jeans...And I wait awhile for delivery. UPS guy comes in, I eagerly open up the package and try on the jeans.
I am mindblown..these fit snug everywhere they should fit...they fit regular where they should be. No skinny ass and calf huggers here...it's more of a slimmer straight fit..and leg opening is perfect. 16.5 I think, and it perfectly goes behind the tongue of my Nike SB dunk Highs, and Vans, and goes over my Chucks. I gotta say...the fit is spot on, and I just can't take em off.
I wear them outside often, and I always get alot of compliments from everyone about how plain awesome these jeans are. I just love them. I think I've gone at least 30 days of wearing them straight...dumped them in the wash, hang dried, and almost no sign of wear.
The colour is steadfast, and the jeans themselves holdup REALLY well for such a light denim. I'm probably copping 2 more pairs in black and grey and probably another one in blue. I won't be wearing any other jeans in a long time...
So, if you're still thinking about getting em...GET EM! I did, and I never have been happier.
