Circle of Friends COF M7 Taper Review

Circle of Friends COF M7 Taper Review

Author: Scott Beairsto

For many of us denim enthusiasts there are numerous elements that we look for in the perfect pair of jeans. From the brand that produces them, to the fit and wash, a good all-around jean can be hard to find especially for those attempting to solve the athletic seat and thigh conundrum. How do you find that perfect pair of jeans where it doesn't look like you're squeezing out of the top block? The Circle of Friends M7 Taper is great option for those looking for an athletic fit.


COF M7 Taper Fit:

With its mid to high rise, the C.O.F. M7 Taper allows for more room in the top block of the jean, while tapering down to the ankle. This jean is obviously ideal for guys with an athletic body type, but it can also work for those interested in a slim jean with a little extra space in the thigh. If you're into a skinny fit, this jean isn't for you.

As for sizing, take into consideration that the jeans fit slightly smaller than your average mid-rise men’s denim. I recommend staying true to size. If in between sizes, go up one size. 

Circle of Friends Fabric

This rinsed 13oz 100% cotton selvedge fabric from the famed Candiani denim mill provides a comfortable all day wear. With its minimal branding, neutral stitching, and tapered fit, offers a great deal of versatility. Comfortable and neutral enough to be worn to work in a business casual setting, while also fitting the more casual street look as featured - its all about the styling. The indigo selvedge pair maintains its vibrant true-blue colour throughout wear and works great for those looking to add a more uniform wash to their rotation. 

The high cotton percentage of these jeans makes them durable and breathable, but if your biggest concern with jean is comfort than the 100% cotton may not be what you're after. 


Final Thoughts

A staple in my closet, the C.O.F. M7 taper in rinsed indigo selvedge is a versatile, comfortable, form fitting taper that is well worth adding to your current denim rotation!

For those enjoying the fit and specs on these jeans, the C.O.F. M7 taper is also available in a 9x washed pair as seen below. One of the most accurate and authentic vintage washes, the 9x wash colour is a great quality 100% cotton selvedge alternative if you are shopping for something more casual. 

Ps. Stay Tuned:
