Hey guys I'm new to this forum been reading a bunch of stuff on here, a lot of cool threads. Saw some cool responses to threads like this thought I'd give it a go. Just got this jacket, was gonna buy some pants with it what do you think I should go with?

This is the jacket, the Holden varsity.

Holden makes a denim pant in different styles, too. Although the Burton pant seems to have that worn jeans look.

Here's what the Holden Standard looks like in Black Denim for example:

The Genuine Denim Skinny (Denim Raw):

Genuine Denim Raw:

I might have mislabeled those...Holden's descriptions are pretty similar and require more focus and brain power than I have atm haha.

Varsity style jacket, denim style pants, and nike ZF1 boot would look sick

dont ever buy the jean snow pants. i guarantee you will look like a tool
Personally, I wouldn't be as concerned with how they look. It's more in how they feel.

I've seen that Burton pant in a shop and the material seemed thin and almost vinyl-like (for lack of a better description).

I've also seen Holden's denim variations in person (tried on the women's versions) and the raw style denim felt stiff and didn't have any sort of liner (if you care about liners). The Standard versions seemed more comfortable and have liners. However, the fabric is not as close to a true denim as the Raw versions are.

That said, the Raw denims seemed more rugged of a material.

OP, are there any particular colors you like?

Haha I was trying to decide the same, They are kind of cool. Idk if I want to look like I'm in street clothes on the slopes though. I realize that's slightly hypocritical with this jacket but wtv. haha

The burton ones are gor-tex, which is basically waterproof nylon type material. The jean pattern is sublimated on like any other print that goes on snowboard pants. They arent actual denim at all (which is a good thing cause denim sucks when its wet)

Color wise, that Volcom pant works. Imo the only thing that might not work is if the Holden jacket is slim cut and the pant baggier.

Yup, I saw they were Gore-Tex. I was just surprised they were thinner than I expected.
