    I bought a bunch of Agave jeans at one shot to sample the higher end jeans in the market compared to say Levis 501s. I bought the same cut for all of them which was Gringo - Classic fit. They are made in the USA which is rare today. Realize the cut is low rise, they are a good 2 inches lower than Levi 501s. That means they ride lower on your body and this can be good or bad. It means you will be pulling them up all the time so no one sees your butt. They do not have 5 belt loops in the back, just 3. Full retail is very expensive but the Sierra Trading Post as always has great prices. The quality is very good including real copper hardware but I think the material itself is on the thin side despite saying 11.5 oz denim. Also they will need to be hemmed as they come unhemmed.

    Very nice jeans. They fit well and of the Agave styles these have a slim fit.
    They are distressed and as another reviewer pointed out these tend to have the back pockets distressed.

    Agave denim make fine stuff. These jeans are nice in what I would call a straight leg fit. Not skinny legs, but not relaxed or boot cut either.

    very well made, fit is like the older USA-made 501s (especially in the thighs).

    Be careful when buying Agave denim. The Gringo's ride lower on the waist, have a slightly narrower leg opening, and have a much slimmer cut through the leg area than the Waterman's. Both are virtually identical in sizing in the waist. If you wear a 33 in the Waterman, you should order a 33 in the Gringo. The Capistrano wash is cut a little slimmer than some other Agave washes, but I like a very slim pair of jeans occasionally, and these are perfect! Also, bear in mind that "vintage" in Agave language means that there are likely to be a few places in the fabric that have been sanded through. Here, it's likely to be on one of the back pockets.

    I have been buying more Gringos than Watermans lately, which are my two favorite Agave "fits." Gringo for tight and slim which looks great with shirts untucked, Waterman for a looser fit that rides high on the hips and looks great with shirts tucked in. I have two pairs of the Capistrano Gringo's. I love 'em.
