Today a friend brought me to a Jeanerica sample sale (Swedish fashion/denim brand). Thought I wouldn't buy anything since most of their jeans are pre-faded, but in a small pile were a couple of raw jeans reduced from $200 to $50 so there wasn't much to lose really. Would describe the cut as 66-ish (straight but with a slight taper), denim is about 12oz and made in Portugal.
It's clear that these weren't made for a denim-enthusiast market but on a discount they're not bad, it can be nice to take a break from all the japanese stuff once in a while.
Next to my TCB 505s.
