Menswear: Hidden In The Seams

Hello, my name is Lucian.  I am the newest male intern here at ECCO.
Today I will showcase the Matchbox from Adriano Goldschmeid in the Robinson wash. Featuring both yellow and orange contrast stitching, the jean is a slim straight leg with a tailored fit.  This wash of the Matchbox is medium blue, with some distress around the front pockets and knee.  These whisker marks give a slightly distressed look to the jeans.  Along with this there are several smaller details on the jean such as the 5th pocket zig-zag design, as well as the mirror image back pocket stitch, which is specifically designed to flatter according to the size you wear.
I wear a 34 waist 34 length comfortably, with the AG Matchbox I was able to go down a size on the waist due to the 2% spandex added to the denim for a slight stretch.
Here is the Robinson in a size 33/34. The jean will lightly stack at the front and back of the knee, as well as at the thigh and cuff.  The soft denim is high quality, feels incredible, and is very functional.  A great jean for a formal night on the town, and a casual jean for the day after.
I suggest the Matchbox to those in need of a comfortable jean to wear on the regular, with a slim and sophisticated look.  AG has created a pleasing addition to any male’s closet.
