JC...this thread can be really gross sometimes. If someone can only afford one pair of jeans then they probably shouldn't be so expensive that someone would choose stink over fade.

P.S. Would you wear your underwear 100 days in row w/o them?

In my experience, there's no way to get rid of the smell aside from washing....soaking still won't remove the smell. You also risk premature breakdown of the denim fibers from all the dirt and oil by choosing not to wash....so I'd go ahead and wash the jeans. Well-timed washes also don't make the fading any "worse."

Word. I went rock climbing in my jeans for 5 months without washing, and they didn't start to smell until then.

If you want perfect fades, you're going to have to put up with smelly jeans.. It's nothing to do with being able to ''afford'' more jeans, it's a labor of love.

I think that looks ridiculous but if I were trying to get that look I would do it with high-end denim and not RRL.

With the exception of hand dyed jeans RRL is among the best "high-end" raw jeans on the market.

 

Don't know what you're talking about those jeans look so much better than any predistressed "vintage aged" fabricated jeans you would buy at a clothing store.

Those jeans are flawless and for the cost/availability on discount, RRL denim is by far the best value. The quality is mostly outstanding and while it may not stack up to the highest tier Japanese denim, it also comes down to 100 on sale whereas boutique Japanese self edge stuff does not ever go on sale.

They're also one of the few brands whose washes are actually worth purchasing.

I think I was misunderstood. I love RRL. They make great quality products from a mainstream brand that regularly has sales. I'm wearing both RRL jeans and a sweater as I'm writing this.

However, they are still somewhat main stream and the quality is not on par with true high end stuff that has even better construction and better materials. If you are going to live in your jeans and risk alienating humanity, why would you not start off with a better base product to create your masterpiece. A top chef who is creating their signature dish will use the best ingredients available.

Who is buying that? Define "looks so much better". I personally would never wear something that looks like that-aged or created. I think it looks very "skater boy" but I guess some people go for that look.

These are purely subjective arguments, and really can't be "won" Besides, any victory would be pyrrhic; do you really want everyone to conform to your personal tastes? Everything would end up dull and uniform.

Make it interesting. Post pictures of your respective looks and share the rich range of possibility within this brand that we can all admire. What is most enjoyable about any well-made brand is how it can used to express an individual sense of style. This thread is a great place to express it, especially with pictures. nod[1].gif

Got my RRL shipment today.

Star Iron Shirt is unreal. The fabric is amazing. Fit feels like my Spellbound shirt - fitted like an old school workshirt.



Also got the wool buffalo-check cardigan and the zip-front trapper shirt. I love the wool on these - thick and soft. I really want to like it, but the trapper shirt is just a funny cut. The buffalo-check is awesome, but not sure if it's right for me, either.




Then was in a store today and scored this Black Label water resistant, hooded biker jacket on sale. This is really an amazing piece with a lot of details. Feels like oil cloth, but it's a water resistant cotton/poly blend. The cuffs are zip and snap with leather trim. Adjustable cords everywhere. Removable hood. Really awesome jacket

I agree. Back to my original point that if you are creating an original work of art there are better quality canvases to start with. RRL makes a great everyday jean.

Wearing the navy zip cardigan and the smoke grey jeans. Go Penn State!

...if not just call your local store and ask them to help you find it in your size.
