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.

No, they aren't. They're only $100 more per pair from Self Edge. From Okayama they're only $30 more per pair and direct from Rakuten they can be had for $30 less than RRL.

Fades of SG look fine.

Alot of jeans won't last any longer than RRL and vice versa. Just look at the jeans you cited in image - they were obviously worn quite bloody tight. Fit is going to be a pretty big determining factor in whether you get those crotch blows.

Nothing comparable at $250 or less? At all? Nothing that even registers on the radar? PBJ, SDA, Sugar Cane? (BIG and SE aren't the only places to buy these), Left Field, 3sixteen, Japan Blue, etc, etc. They're all that bad (or RRL at $250 is THAT great?)?

Hell, I've tried on two pairs of Edwin nashvile that I'll put on par with my RRL straights.

I'm not going to import jeans from Japan or scour the net for months looking to get a deal on Rakuten, if you're going to go based on discount prices then you can get RRL raws on ebay for $175 or less and twice a year $40 at outlets. SE and BiG are both readily available and the pretty much the standard for US pricing so I'll go by that when making comparisons.

 

Hate Left Field and 3sixteen. PBJ and Sugar Cane are both great and generally more expensive.

 

RRL denim and construction IS that damn good, and you get higher prestige and brand cachet than going with unknown repro/heritage brands.

 

The crotch blowout and poor fading on the SG jeans just shows that they're neither "high-end" nor "masterpiece" jeans, they're just like most other Japan made jeans, overhyped and overpriced.


Edwin/ Big John are nice "value" jeans, but you'll have to import the good models from Europe/Japan. Very few US shops even carry them.

Was at Woodbury again yesterday. Still had loads of belts - mostly at W40+. Nothing as far as clothing is concerned unfortunately.

RRL CLOTHING - what are the 2 times a year that you can get RRL Raws for $40 at outlets? Significant holidays?
