    Oh yeah, and as part of my original refund I got the $17.50 I spent over the Groupon and the first50 put back on my card. That means I really spent $37.25 for all of it.


    I kind of feel like I ripped them off, but I'll definitely make some more purchases in the future.

    I just ordered the Flatirons, which I picked up after I returned a pair of the Blue Ridge to size down, so that kind of worked out.


    The previous jeans were my first purchase, so I used the first50 code; the code wasn't working for me this time around, but since it was still technically my first purchase, a ninja comped me $50 in the form of a credit. So with the Jungle Cents, the Groupon, the first-time $50 and the ability to use the 25% code, I picked up the jeans and a gingherbread shirt for a grand total of $54.75.

    @hdm haven't noticed any color transfer, but it will be quite a while before I wash them.


    @grasking you might want to even consider 28 in the Flatirons, if you have a belly that would reflect a larger waist with the higher rise pants. If you are slim then yeah I would still at least go down to 29.


    @AJ25 I'm not quite sure what to say about that, maybe try asking [email protected]?

    @ Sal Orlando


    That is the only way I can think to describe it. I don't have them pulled up too high but the yoke of the jean in the back seems to billow out which pulls up on the wedgie part of the jean giving it the appearance of being worn too high. Not really sure what causes the yoke to billow out as opposed to laying flat. Perhaps my junk in the trunk is not sufficient enough?

    I wear a 30 in their chinos and cords. Would you suggest I drop to a 29 in the Flatiron?

    I noticed the site mentioned "color transfer." For those who have them, have you noticed much of this? It seems they're rinsed, not raw denim, so I'm assuming it's not very much, but I thought I would check anyway.

    Wedgie? I wouldn't think there would be enough material for that to be able to happen.

    The only thing I can imagine is that they are too big and then you are pulling them up too far?

    I recently received my first pair of Bonobos denim today and was also pleased with the much darker wash than the pictures on the website. However, when checking out the fit in the mirror I couldn't help but notice that as opposed to flattering my backside the jeans appeared to be giving me a permanent wedgie. I have never had this trouble with any of the khakis I have ordered through them and was wondering if anyone else had this problem or a remedy to fix it. Size up? Size down? Not fixable?

    Jon, I definitely think you should send them back and size down. I never buy size 33 pants, so I took a bit of a risk but it paid off.


    Not sure what's up with the length though, mine are what I would expect from 32 inseam.

    I got my straight legs (the darkest wash) in the mail today, and I'm warming up to them, but I was a bit let down at first. The wash is a lot better than in the online pics, as has been said before, but these are a little longer than I expected and don't really seem that fitted. I wear a 32 regularly, so maybe I should send these back and size down.


    Regardless, I paid $42.50 for the jeans, so I'm still feeling pretty good about the purchase.

    My Flatirons just arrived. I normally wear 34-35 and I sized down to 33 in these. Haven't had them on that long yet but man these things are awesome. They are snug but comfortable, I love the feel of them. If they just stretch a tiny bit in all the right places it will be absolutely perfect. Length is perfect too, and the pockets are nice and deep which was one thing about the bull denim, the pockets were a bit shallow.


    I've never really splurged on jeans so these are probably the nicest ones I've ever owned. The denim is amazing. At first when I saw how small they seemed when folded up I was a little apprehensive but they feel very substantial yet still soft. The color is dark indigo just like I hoped, I know there was some question because there light shining on them in the website shots. The stitching is really nice and doesn't have those big ugly bunches of stitching on the hips like my cheaper ones, just one perfectly stitched line. The fabric seems to have a little bit of stretch to it too.

    Yeah, my seem to fit well. I'm a 34" but I have the body type that Bonobos targets. Mine were tight in the thighs but not constricting. They are really perfect, because as they begin stretching, they won't seem too baggy. Also...ditto the post about the washes. They are darker (better) in person and not very well represented on the website.

    Did you guys size down? I have to size down 1" on all Bonobos pants it seems, was wondering if their denim was the same.

    I returned mine for a smaller size; they stretched pretty noticeably after a few hours test wear. Reference: I'm a 36 in 501's. Got a 35 in bonobos. Thighs were snug, waist was right on/touch loose. Basically, within 6 hours of wear they seemed to have stretched into roughly the same size as my 36 501's. I'm losing weight though so wanted the B's for next size down/visible weight loss reinforcement. Returned for 34's.


    If you're not losing, I'd say go down 1", and wear em around the house to stretch before going out in nutcutters.

    Wesman is right. They will loosen up. This happened with the pair of Todd Sheltons I bought. While they still fit well I almost wish I went down a size.
