Montauk Slim-Jim Jeans
What attracts me to Robert Graham is their use of color. My first purchase was a belt with a design that was understated but if you look at it carefully, the colors and details of the images on the exterior were absolutely amazing.
I decided to try their Jeans, so I bought three pairs, one at lastcall. The description of the material was true to what I received and the interior around the pockets and waist was very colorful and well done.
What was incredibly disappointing was the cut of the jeans..in all three cases. The legs were far from "slim", the seat had so many folds it looked like the sail from a boat, and the crotch area was long and baggy. I wear a 34 waist, weigh 156 lbs and have a 'normal' build so I don't know what criteria Graham sets for their patterns but these big boys cost me almost as much to have tailored as the jeans themselves and certainly more than the savings on lastcall. There is a Graham store in Venice, but I decided to save time and buy online. Big mistake.
