When I first tried on the slim jim cut, they were the stretch denim, which are totally different than these 100% cotton. The stretch slims were way too tight! Would not fit me. These on the other hand, fit PERFECT! I really love the color a lot, Gorgeous! 46 Dips is so impressive. Very deep indigo with a slight shine to the fabric. Runs true to size. I wear 32 and bought a 32 and it fits nicely. I would not recommend down sizing on slim jims. Too bad I will have to return these because 32x32 is a bit long on me. I had to order a 32x30 directly from Nudie.com because Revolve does not carry 30" lengths. I really wish they did...I hate hemming a new pair of jeans. If you like Slim Jims, these are a must buy! The slim jim and hank rey are my two favorite cuts of all time.
