Didn't Jim Bridger and Kit Carson shashay across mountain ranges in similar outfits?
Workwear is the new Black.
BTW, anyone seen the new Mister Freedon range (not that I'll ever be able to afford anything from it)? Looks likely that we'll be seeing French workwear repros from RRL > J Crew > Gap at some point, if developments in US-style repros over the past year are owt to go by. Y'know, the trickle-down effect!
Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane SPRING 2011 Collection: "Les APACHES"
It looks like he may be wearing them too low and/or wearing the wrong size.
Alternatively, maybe the cut is odd: the pockets appear to be located too low, the yoke too big, the cinch too low.

Yeah, unfortunately, we still don't have a digital camera so I can't take pics. The shots you'll see by putting "Cheap Monday" and cowboy into Google image search are all similar to the one I posted as an illustration, i.e. some model wearing 'em in an unbecoming manner, but they'll surely appeal if you like Lee 101 cowboy, Levi's 1920 201s/1933 models or anything that halfway between a 'normal' cut and an ultra-high-waisted workwear style. I haven't washed my pair (I usually give it a year or more) but the denim is conforming nicely, even though it's not really, really stiff, it's quite a soft but substantial weave, with the 'weft' going horizontal as opposed to vertical which, along with the inner seam selvedge, makes me think that they're gonna actually look pretty darn nifty the more I wear 'em.
One word, though — the inner leg measurement is s'posed to be 34" on mine but they're actually around 32 1/2", which makes me feel that Cheap Monday reckoned on folks wearing 'em in a baggy-crotched manner, as opposed to pulling 'em up to proper rise height. Prolly won't affect those with shorter legs or if you don't want turn-ups/cuffs... They're just right for me, and it's actually a bit different for me not to wear cuffed jeans, which I usually really like...
Just to chime in about the selvedge LVC'S I believe that they have them at the malibu Levis store as I was told by a worker at the santa monica store. I havent been out there yet so I can't vouch for sure. Cultizm is a good bet iv'e ordered from them before. Coincidentally I have 2 pairs of selvedge 501's (not lvc) that im thinking of parting with
