What is it? According to the Mizzen and Main website, their new Abrams Advanced Denim, has, “. . . the look and feel of selvedge denim with just enough performance to fit that athletic build. Our denim maintains the appearance and texture of selvedge denim but gently breaks in for a vastly more comfortable wear.” This new product, made in Ohio, is just another of their designs that merges both fashion and function.
What do I think? These jeans looked and felt “too fancy” for me when I took them from the box. I wasn’t sure what to think about them and I certainly wasn’t sure how I’d like the button fly. I was incredibly impressed with the feel and movement of this product. These don’t stretch and expand like some other stretch denim jeans on the market. However, the Abrams jeans do definitely mold around your legs and backside the more you wear them.
Why do you need it? If you want some nice jeans to wear out to social events, and you love American made products, the Abrams would be a great fit for you in every sense of the word.
When should you use it? I wear them to work, out to dinner, when I travel. They are definitely the nicest pair of jeans I have. I probably would not wear them just around the house or doing yard work though.
