Studio D'Artisan SD-103 5 months
Repaired, thanks Anton!
Compared to 6 months S0500XX.
This picture doesn't belong here, but anyway, it's the S0500XX compared to Rickard's S0510XX(15oz version).
I like the denim and detailing of these jeans a lot but I'm not a big fan of the fit, in fact I think that's the biggest flaw that Studio D'Artisan has, the cuts aren't that inspiring.
In my opinion he SD-103 is unproportionate, the rise is too low compared to the width of the legs. The rise should either be higher or the legs should be a little slimmer and perhaps taper.
But this is only in regard to how they fit me, they might be perfect for someone else.
If I bought another pair of SDAs it would be the SD-101 which is a 50's fit with the same great denim as these have.
I had to get these repaired after four months but don't let that I scare you away from Studio D'Artisan. The denim is/was quite starchy and coarse and I wore the jeans fairly snug, which was also a contributing factor.
The quality is definitely there in every part of these jeans and you need to remember that you are in fact not buying jeans that will last you years and years, you're buying jeans that will wear out beautifully.
If you're European aolhnd like Studio D'Artisan I have great news for you. You'll soon be able to buy the brand's products in stores in the UK or order from there, which is easier and might feel more comfortable than having the stuff shipped all the way from Asia.
