I purchased a pair online over the weekend. I really wanted to stop by SESF and try it on before purchasing, but I was too impatient considering it’s an hour and half drive for me. I’ve been eyeing Roy’s work since 2010 ish; however, I was never able to afford any of his products since I was still in high school. This is my first Roy purchase so I’m pretty excited to own a piece of his creation.
I am contemplating whether I should double up and keep one archived considering black seed denim’s near extinction. I may just wait and see what Roy drops next, but we shall see how fond I am of the denim when I see them in person.
I personally like the straight taper fit as I usually lean towards looser fitting jeans/pants with cuffs. I will provide fit pics when it arrives.
I am planning to do an initial cold soak just to get the shrinkage out of the way. I am curious to know what everyone else is planning to do: an initial soak prior to wearing, or just wear it right out the bat with the just the rinse-state?
