DT’s Eric recently pulled on his first pair of OPENMARKET jeans (the K1 tailored straight leg jean in red), and he’s here to tell you all about it. OPENMARKET is an LA-based men’s denim and knit basics brand—we showed you their rugged lookbook last week. Eric had been searching for a pair of red jeans for a while, and now that he has himself a pair, he’ll tell you what he thinks.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
They seriously kick ass. These are my first pair of jeans that aren’t black, blue or gray… so I was extremely excited to get them.
Within an hour of wearing them, I received compliments from customers who demanded to know where I got these awesome jeans. I’ll never forget the day I got them- it was a Friday. On the way to the bar, after work, people couldn’t help but stare at them as I passed by on the sidewalk. It didn’t stop there. Everyone at the bar was asking about my awesome new pair of red jeans.
Where/when would you wear these?
I will probably wear these all the time. They are surprisingly versatile forsuch a bold color and they go really well with my favorite blue sweater. I wore themto the bar, the beer garden and some non-alcoholic venues like work. They are sharp looking for a night out and comfortable enough to just wear around the house.
How’s the fit?
I’m 6’6 and pretty tough to please when it comes to size and fit, but these jeans look and feel amazing. They are a slim fit, but they don’t feel tight. I really don’t think I’ve ever had a pair of jeans that fit so ideally on my stature.
One of the best things about the jeans are the back pockets: the intricate detail in the stitching catches the eye and let’s you know that these are quality. I now know the joy of having red jeans, and look forward to adding more color to my wardrobe!
Stay tuned for Raffa’s review of his OPENMARKET jeans in dirty mint.

Polarn O. Pyret slim fit, skinny color denim.
Just out: color denim by Swedish children’s clothing label Polarn O. Pyret (a.k.a. PO.P) is now 20% off through April 8. Better yet, they are skinny jeans for the kiddies! Why would that be important? Have you tried to find the perfect-fitting pair of jeans for your kids that are both stylish and don’t fall down to the ankles when your progeny runs around the playground? The fact is, skinny jeans for kids aren’t the same denim legging, body-hugging kind they make for adults. These jeans are generally cut slimmer overall and narrow in the calf. With 3% stretch, your kids will still be able to run, jump and do cartwheels to their heart’s content. With so many stand-out colors to choose from (availability depends on size), your kiddies will be oh-so-stylish this spring and summer. Bonus: it will be easy to spot your wandering toddler in the crowd. Sizes range from 2 years to 11 years.
