You do come off like a jerk on this thread. There's really no need for that. What high-end denim and not RRL are you referring to?

If there's a denim that's higher quality than RRL and offers that sort of fit (which I haven't seen with any of the Japanese brands), I'd like to hear it. I think RRL Clothing's denim is a job well-done, and almost-certainly will look better while he's wearing it.

I like RRL denim a lot, best fit for me that I have been able to find. And the Japanese denim is very nice I think. That being said, construction isn't the best. I've seen some sloppy chain stitching and have had a rivet fall apart on me. Not terrible, but not up to par with the best Japanese brands. Still..great denim, great fit, decent construction, and reasonable prices even at full retail....they are my favorite choice right now and when I wear mine out its likely I'll just buy another pair.

Anyone know how the measurements differ between the low straight rigid and the slim straights? I saw on context clothing the low straights tagged 32 have a hem of 8 in and a knee of 8.5. I'm hoping the slim straights are a bit slimmer in the hem if not the same. I'm def grabbing one or the other this week. The fit pic on context of the low straights are surprisingly a slimmer fit than I thought and look great on.

Very nice. I agree the new stuff is pretty cool.

Just picked up the Redon Jacket, the Rennes vest and a Lee Workshirt. Can't wait for the rest of the Spring line. Loving this maritime, south of France look.

I don't get the hate for RRL jeans either, especially when you can get them for pretty cheap. I have a couple pairs and I paid around $150 for each of them (1 off ebay, 1 here). I couldn't find anything in that price range on ebay or here that was better.

Haven't tried on the low straights in a long time but I have a slim fit 1 wash size 31x32 and the leg opening is 7.5" and the knee is a little over 8". Maybe 8.25"

I get really mad when I see that other people find this stuff in tjmaxx/marshall haha...I have about 8 within driving distance of my house. Never seen a single piece of RRL, PL or BL in the 10 years I've been going to them.

 

in NY (north of the city)

There seems to be some reading comprehension issues in this thread. No one is "hating" on RRL. I actually just picked up four shirts, a cardigan, and two pairs of jeans, and a pair of boots over the last week. (I even posted pictures of me wearing the stuff). Not exactly hatred in any sens of the word. RRL is a decent value especially with the sales.

I simply mentioned that if you are going to wear jeans as a matte of wearable art there are better products to do it with. I don't care for such things but others do.and I understand that.

I would recommend The Strike Gold SG1109 for such wear. I have a pair and the quality and construction are outstanding and the price is not ridiculous. They have hidden rivets in the rear pocket folds which is a very nice touch. The rivets are all custom made for the jeans and have a copper outer ring and an iron inner which will start to rust with time and sweat and show through adding to the patina. The antique looms that they are woven on leave a lot of chatter marks which fades amazingly (if you are into such things) and looks different than most other jeans. They are quite heave so that may not be for everyone. I do have quite thick thighs so they are a little tight there but have started to soften up and break in over the last 6 months.


Anyway, those are some of my favorite and I'm sure other members have theirs.

I understand ur argument but for me fit is always better than quality. iv said this before high end Japanese denim looks like shit on in most cases for me atleast. I also made a lot of mistakes early on because of inexperience .that said I prefer modern cuts over the repro cuts.

Strike Gold is about $100 more per pair than RRL and doesn't fade that great. It also won't last any longer than RRL jeans. You think that if it's found at Self Edge it must be great and that's just usually not the case. RRL raws are a quality bargain. You won't find anything comparable at $250 or less, unless you're willing to wear Naked and Famous.
