First Impressions: Right off the bat I fell in love with Brave Star’s Slim Tapered Fit. For me it fits like a bespoke pair, in other words, Perfectly. I really like this denim, It’s not your standard Cone Mills. I’ve actually never seen a Cone denim like this. It’s got a red cast that you can see when the light hits it in just the right way and there is a cross hatching in the weave that looks more Collect Co. than Cone Mills. Still very rigid for a 14.5oz with a nice roughness to it. I can tell these are going to fade quickly as one day of wear is already showing signs of fading already. Solid craftsmanship with well executed stitching. This pair would definitely be selling in the $200 range at a retailer. Almost no shrinkage but will stretch out. I would recommend buying nice and snug. Even with the very skinny cut of the jeans they were not restricting at all, as you can see below.
