As far as high end washes go Portland is pretty basic/bland. I don't know if it's the new wash labs or the new cone denim.

Yea my favorite is still the Canyon Creek wash although I had only seen it in pictures. Wasn't a fan of the washes with small holes/tears on the jeans. What was your favorite?

I do have Canyon Creek and I think it's fine, but it's certainly not my favorite. I will post a picture later on.

I wonder how you define high-end washes? I know some jeans retail for as low as $220, whereas some--like Portland--start at $360 and up. What makes Portland more expensive than, say, Spring Creek and is it worth the premium?

The best wash is the one you make yourself.

 

But if I had to choose, I like the dirty washes. Great Plains, Nevada, Carolina, etc.

Most RRL jeans retail at $360 to $420 now. That's because they know they will have a sell down at 50-60% off. No way I'm paying $420 for cone denim there is just nothing to substantiate it. Spring Creek was a $300 wash. The only ones that are $240 now are Rigid jeans.

 

A few years back the nice washes retailed for $265-320, all Okayama denims, very nice washes (like PRPS Japan) and worth paying MSRP.

Many thanks for the helpful insight!

 

May I ask you what's your opinion of the rigid and once washed denim? I got a pair of once washed just a few weeks ago, and like it a lot, especially given it's half the cost of RRL's premium washes. Also, did you have any experience with the RRL cords? I haven't seen them in person and I wonder if the quality/look justifies the $220 retail.

 

Btw, by looking at the RRL website I can't see anything priced north of $360 (Stillwater wash) at this point.

i finally got the chance to check out that "cat 13" jacket, and i hate to say it but the quality feels better than the indian patch one from last year.

PSA: i have one more size XL in the overdyed pocket t and just looking to get rid of it at cost ($23) so i can get it out with tomorrow's shipments. if anyone is interested you know what to do.

Personally my favorite wash was the Antique Indigo from a few of years ago. Was no distressing - was pretty similar to how raws fade after about a year.

I agree with RRL Clothing - the best washes are the ones you do yourself over a year or so of hard wear. My slim "one wash" are looking pretty nice now - I wear them on site constantly.

Does anyone know how to size women's RRL jeans? Looking for a pair of slims for my better half in an actual W28/29 X L31/32.
