I'm 100% sure they aren't fake though.

thanks for the correction... i was reading this thread on my phone and thought they were the grassy hills.

Haha that's how I made the initial assumption too - damnnable (tiny) phones screens!

Not RRL.

But you can get these from Levis LVC stores. They stock them as part of their Made Here program.

Yes. True to size. Great jeans.

If your looking for US made, Left Field, Raleigh, and a few others are at least if not better. Japan houses a good share of brands that top them as well, but you'll be paying a good premium for those labels as well.

 

I disagree with this slightly. RRL is one of the few brands that develops its own fabrics and doesn't take stock fabrics from the mills. From what i know all those brands above buy stock fabric meaning they share it with other brands. I've heard RRL spend a lot of time and money developing  their own. Couple this with only making small quantities compared to other brands this leads to the high pricing structure. I've heard some interesting rumours about RRL denim for Spring 13 but haven't been able to find out if its true or not.

I don't know how many there are in Texas, so that workshop could very likely be the successor to Julian for RRL. 

Good find.

I haven't seen those at all but I wouldn't have been looking for them. I would think they are from a past season and not currently in stores. If this is your desired size and color I would suggest purchasing from eBay.

Like this a lot. Would need to buy a Brough Superior to go with it though. The lining seems identical to last seasons Oilcloth Hunting Jacket, but the waxed fabric itself looks like it might be more durable and less washed.

I see that you must have hit outlet gold recently dude. How many pairs of two-toned, brown, Murdock Engineer Boots did you get your hands on?!
