It's undoubtedly nice for customers to buy high quality jeans...

I found this thread, which was helpful, and contained this link. Sufu is down, btw. I was thinking of getting something from Denime. I'm tall and athletic, looking for something raw with a relaxed fit. My favorite jeans are 5EP straight downs. If I could change anything, I'd decrease the rise on the 5EPs by...

Wow, sometimes Styleforum is worse than superfuture. What do you even know about jeans and retail? I don't even need to ask because it evident from what you just said. Bunch of know-it-alls is what you are. Don't come calling anyone shady when you're dumb as a rock yourself and have no...

As I stated in my post it wasn't even directed at Rye, but at those who're complaining that the jeans aren't made in Japan or USA when they're $300.
I dig this brand. I would like to buy like 5 pairs of pants, one or two shirts and the overall jacket, but unfortunately I have to save my money for later.
First APC collection I like in a long time. Well, I like it a little bit, at least, and am not bored out of my mind looking at it. And yeah, APC's shoes are ridiculously priced, and I believe its the same with all fashion brands. I saw a pair of the APC suede chukkas from fw07 on which the leather had just ripped, not the seam, but the actual leather, from stress.

If you need to look at the inside tag that states where the product is manufactured to determine the quality...
