The cut seems more of a slim straight than a classic straight leg?
Cool how different it looks on the different participants.


They were always pretty slim actually; here’s how they fit on me the first time around:

I think they must have shrunk a bit because they fit me two years ago, but they were tight on me back then so I don't think they were ever too large.

Took the Leroys for another spin this past weekend; weather has cooled down now so I’ll take some proper photos with them on this weekend:

Thanks Broark!

Coming up on my last week with the Leroys, wondering who’s next in line?

Went hiking in them today and gave them a thorough wash afterward:

It took quite a bit longer than expected and Leroys even spent a week at the Customs but finally came through. I had them first in the Spring 2018 and they were still quite dark indigo but since then they have faded to perfection! The fabric feels great and has so much character. Leroy's stitching is impeccable and the single needle stitching is holding up well. Inside the seams without overlock are unraveling but that was happening already in 2018. I will post inside pics later but here's an outside shot. 


The crotch rivet is starting to get some nice patina


Belgium is in a lockdown 2.0 so my posts will probably consist of detail shots and some random walks around the park. Nothing much happening at the moment...

...don't we all. All I want for Christmas is that someone who is friendly with Roy persuades him to make a small Denimbro run of these or something similar.Embarrassed
