Ministry of Supply Chroma Denim Pant Review
A few great pairs of jeans should be a style stalwart in every man’s wardrobe. Trusty denim pants are meant to get us through the days casually cool and comfortably. Ministry of Supply’s Chroma Denim Pant is out to do just that.
The indigo wash has a traditional rich, dark color that you’d expect from a pair of indigo wash jeans. They use an innovative reaction dye that uses 1/2 the water of traditional dyeing methods to create vibrant tones meant to last through countless washes.
How Do The Jeans Feel?
The Chroma Denim Pant has a pretty standard 2% elastane stretch that feels comfortable on the first wear. And while there’s adequate stretch, the fabric has plenty of give and always retains its shape after wearing for long periods of time. Just for fun I wore them for several days straight and the jeans never got stretched out of shape.
On the plus side, these jeans are not only stretchy through the thighs and legs, but there’s ample stretch in the waist area which is always a bonus. Your movements won’t be hindered wearing the Chroma Denim Pants.
Also notice the jean’s stitching, it’s subtle and blends in with the indigo wash as opposed to a contrasting golden stitch that you see on many other popular jeans styles. It’s neither good nor bad, but a detail worth noting since some men prefer the subtlety of a non-contrasting stitch.
How Do The Jeans Fit?
The Chroma Denim Pants fit me quite well, on par with some of the better fitting jeans in my closet. Not only do they fit well, but they’re equally as comfortable too. It’s got a standard mid-rise with a zip fly and button closure.
And as for the length, the inseam of this pair is 30″ which is a few inches longer than my usual 27″-28″ inseam and so you’ll see me cuffing them up. The good news is that they now carry 28x28, which would make for an even better fit.
The slim fit is true to form and fits like a slim should. The taper towards the ankle is generous and flattering, leading to an overall solid fit. These are great everyday jeans that you can literally wear 5 days a week if you wanted to, not that I’d encourage it.
What I Like About The Chroma Denim Pant
Here are a few things that I really like about the Chroma Denim Pant.
- They offer a slim and standard fit
- Now includes shorter that 30″ inseams of 28″
- The jean’s stretch lives up to the resilient ‘smart-stretch’ advertising
- The dark indigo wash stays consistently dark through many washes
- Comes in 3 classic colors of indigo, dark grey and black.
