Not like the original travel jeans
Old lightweight version was awesome, some of my favorite pants. These are super heavy and have a much tighter fit. Have been waiting for the lightweight travel jeans to come back but these definitely aren't it.
another poor quality product!
travel jeans fall apart, belt loops keep coming undone and the color wont hold-
Jet blues fade in color fast- even when you don't dry and wash on cold---
all done with Bonobos!
How Low Can You Go?
by just me
These were the first Bonobos I ordered.
Time for some numbers -- I'm 55.
Waist is now 32.5. For many, many years, it was a 30ish waist.
When I ordered the first pair, I had planned to order 31, but was encouraged by a Ninja to order down, so 30, it was.
I really, really liked these pants.
In fact, probably wore them at last three days a week.
My educated Ninja friends tell me that denim will eventually stretch out some.
I guess I knew that, but I never thought about that when buying pants before . . .
which I guess is why I have jeans in my closet (from other companies) that I don't wear any more . . . because they don't fit as well in the waist as they used to.
Well, to make a long story longer, my fav tan Travel Jeans seemed to be gaining a bit of stretch in the waist too.
You know, that, when you stand up and feel the need to adjust the waist in the back.
So, my Ninja friend (seems like I've made more than a few), encouraged me to try a 29 waist!
I have not been a 29 waist since I was 29 years old!
Why, am I telling you this?
Oh well, with this extravagant -- no shipping, keep returning policy, I figured, why not?
So, now, I'm wearing a size 29 Travel Jeans -- for the past several weeks.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
'Someone' once said, "what's in a name?"
I guess here at my new great -fitting trouser supplier,
the question is, "What's in a number?
Just know, that I will not be informing anyone else that I am wearing a size 29 pants.
But now, I know what size to order in Travel Jeans.
Fit is different than before
Like the previous reviewer, these travel jeans have a different fit than the previous one (Baja). I have an athletic build (e.g. cyclist thighs) and these pair of jeans are just too tight compared to the previous travel jeans.
Just the jeans I was looking for
Ordered a size down from my usual khaki size and they fit great. Good weight for fall/winter and nice color.
They've changed everything that made the previous version of travel jeans fantastic and different. No longer lightweight or stretchy, the denim has 50% less stretch than before, is thicker and kind of cheap looking. The fit was off in the rear, which is supposed to be where Bonobos puts the "magic". Take a closer look at the pics above and you can tell the rear is full of sag. And a very weird thing: the front pocket lining is almost thicker than the denim, so the silhouette of the front pocket is visible, looked like I had two thick handkerchiefs in my front pockets (not like the pic above). Total bummer, I bought two pair because I loved my other travel jeans so much, but have to return these. Please return to the other denim!
"fitted" straight jeans
The new travels jeans fit slightly different from the premium bonobos jeans. The new travel jeans straight fit like the slim fit of the premium bonobos jeans, which I absolute love. To be honest, I originally ordered these jeans in slim fit, and they fit on the borderline of skinny jeans. So the straight jeans version of it fit me perfectly. Overall, this pair has a fantastic color and great athletic fit.
Really like them
These fit great, look great, and are comfortable to wear. Definitely happy with my purchase.
These are a lot tighter than the old travel jeans. I ordered my normal size (32x34) and those were too small. I returned them for a size up (33x34) and still way too tight. Not buying travel jeans again even though I loved the old ones.
