Not bad for jeans from California.
The Benchmark Jeans are a good pair of jeans if you are not looking for a pair of work jeans. Being only 12 oz per inch they are not going to last very long if you are branding cattle, but if you work downtown they are probably the best selvage jeans for the price. The fit is a little bit bigger than I have found in other brands but for the overall quality of the jeans it is no big deal. I have bought jeans from other high end catalogs and the Benchmark Jeans are the best when it comes to price and fit.
They are Premium
Greaet pair of geans, extreamily soft and comfitable not hard and stiff like most geans. The inseam sizing is a bit off, I ordered a 34"" inseam but I received probability a 36"". That okay I had them altered to 34"". Still a great pair of geans.
Ordered a 30 inch inseam and got a 32-33 inch length even though the tag says 30. These jeans were simply way too long. They will go back. Not sure if these are snowflakes or if every one is like this.
Don't care for it
I dislike buying clothing that appears ""used."" e.g. wrinkled and worn, etc.
The denim is light weight but the fit in the waist is OK. I kind of like the look aslso, slightly different from regular jeans. However, they come much longer than the 34 I ordered and on the label, at least 35 or 36. Might be able to wear them with boots but that is about it even after washing them. Have not had much luck with jeans from TA but like everything else.
