Anonymous asked: I noticed you had a lot of Bonobos in your last post. How do you like their denim?
I have two pairs of denim: the Bonobos pair that has appeared on here a few times and a pair of 3Sixteen SL-100x that I snagged for cheap on ebay. When I’m reaching into my closet for a pair of jeans, I almost always grab the Bonobos pair because they just fit better. Wardrobes tend to be self-selecting like that; the quality of a garment’s material and construction will probably be overlooked in favor of something that is easier to wear. Both jeans are made out of high quality materials in the USA; the 3Sixteens are made of thick raw Japanese selvedge and the Bonobos are made out of a significantly lighter White Oak Cone denim. Both have a lot going for them, and I like them both. In terms of fit and comfort though, the Bonobos take the cake.
When I bought my Bonobos denim the prices were a bit lower and I was able to get them for free with a discount code and store credit, so it was a no-brainer purchase. The slim fit works well for me, but the straight leg might work better for a huskier guy. Consider sizing down one in the waist as they will stretch with wear.
