This is my 2nd Grand st pair of WGC jeans, 1st one being in standard dark indigo. Love the fit and found it a relief that it's identical to the 1st pair. Construction & stitching is spot-on from an inspection before and after the first wear. Love the inky blackness and the copper hardware - no buttons and rivets out of place, zipper too (they look clean and shiny) . At 13 oz it certainly feels much beefier than the 11.5oz standard, and it came out really starchy and crisp out of the package. Pretty much hit all the nails here. If you're looking for an inky black version of your Grand St fit but with slightly beefier fabric look no further. Thanks Maurice, that's 2 for 2 with me!
The rivets and button are copper, not black as the product description states. At least not on the pair that I received in January.
These black Japanese denim jeans are roomier overall than my Grand Street Standard pair, making them seem more like a Regular Fit than a Slim Fit. At first I was a bit put off, but after wearing them several times I came to like the extra bit of room.
The style is so clearly different from mass produced Levi's or high end styles (AG, GStar etc...) in the way the cut transitions from the thigh down the calves, which is almost angular or squared off. Very nicely done. It seems most jean brands don't give as much attention to the shape of the leg from top to bottom. They just create a generic tube or very slight narrowing at the knees. This brand devotes careful attention to every aspect of the pants.
Perfect fit, perfect length, awesome quality can't say enough
