I do love the cut and fit of these jeans. The details are very cool, and the pair I received looks just like the pictures on Amazon. The black parts are a dark black with a slight shine effect. The material and stitching are high quality.
The only reason I am not giving five stars is because the denim isn't so much dyed black as "coated." On close inspection, the denim is blue and has been coated dark black. The coating has a plastic like consistency. If, for example, you drop water on them and blot it fairly quickly, it will not be absorbed into the material. This gives the jeans a stiffness that I don't care for and that is uncharacteristic of ETO/ENZO jeans. I have three other pairs of ETO or ENZO jeans that are crazy soft and comfortable. I expected these to be the same. Not sure I would have bought them had I known about the coated coloring, but I intend to get plenty of wear from them.
Due to the heat trapping finish, I don't expect to be able to wear these pants during the warmer months.
I have washed them a few times without any problems. I threw in a sacrificial white sock, and these jeans did not bleed at all.
So in summary, these fit well, have a great look, and are very easy to care for. The color is a dark black with a sheen. The coloring makes them a bit stiff and causes them to trap heat making them unsuitable for warm weather wear.
