Last week we showed you Eric’s take on his red straight-leg OPENMARKET jeans, and this week it’s Raffael’s turn. Self-proclaimed denimist, this are his first pair of men’s colored jeans. He opted for a pair in “dirty mint” wash (which is more on the pastel side of olive green). His reactions are below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
Smooth denim and nice fit! I also like the pocket shape and clean finishing. The pocket is actually double (an inset pocket with a patch pocket sewn on top, but it’s not bulky). The top stitching in red is a nice touch.
Where/when would you wear these?
Since spring is around the corner, I’m thinking I’ll be wearing these all the time! To picnics, the beach, the park, around Brooklyn. They’re comfortable, I could wear them pretty much anywhere.
How’s the fit?
I like the way fits me on the waist and the legs. I’ll use our tailoring service to taper them a bit, so the cuff looks more clean (I always cuff my jeans). Speaking of which, the white merrow stitch on the green denim that’s exposed when I cuff them is cool too.
Love these jeans? Check out OPENMARKET!
