SilvioB has them BNWT for a really good price. You'll never find these so inexpensive. They will fit a 34-36 waist.

Don't miss this.

Nice find, apparently I moved to slow and since have already sold.  He suggested I buy these instead,

Are there any real differences between these and the one's that just sold other than the buttons for the braces?  The denim looks different.  

post #15707 of 20052
The denim probably is different. The ones that sold may have been Japanese denim, whereas the ones he's suggesting are American Cone. Every time I've handled Cone denim I've been disappointed so I would avoid his suggestion (but that's just me).

I could be wrong, but I believe the ones that sold are the straight leg version of a slim fit buckle back which I have (R21's), which are amazing - really hairy, slubby Japanese denim. I know that a season after the slim fits were released, they released a straight leg version made from the same Japanese denim, and these look similar. Again, I could be very wrong.

^ Yeah the new rigid overalls suck compared to the last ones.

 

The ones from last year were Japanese denim and Slim Fit.

 

These new ones popping up on ebay are all Straight Leg of Cone denim.

 

You can distinguish them from the MSRP, which is now $300 down from $340.

What about this?

post #15710 of 20052
Those Boss limited edition buckle backs were the best raw jeans RRL ever made. There's no comparison with the buckle backs he's suggesting. However, those other one's are really nice as well and are def worth the price he's asking (maybe he'll cut a better deal on them).

Unfortunately they are in just not comparable to the Boss of the Road denim. They are truly unique. So many RRL SA's snapped them up as soon as they were released.

It makes me wonder how stuff like that even ends up at outlets.

 

The problem with Silvio is he buys all the denim at outlet prices for $45-60, so he prices everything $210, regardless if the MSRP is $300 or $500.

 

$210 for the Boss jeans was a steal. $210 for the Cone bucklebacks is meh, since they were all over the SH sale and ebay for the past few months.

I think those were the R27 cotton / linen blend, straight leg buckle backs. Also great. Very slubby Japanese fabric that looked and felt a lot like SC 40105 Okinawa's.

You were correct these are of the Cone variety.  He posted another pic of the inside pocket which reads Made In the US of the Finest American Woven Selvedge Denim.  Bummer

I blew it with Sil, we agreed to 190 shipped and I balked.  Serves me right for dicking around....

Are these the ones you are speaking of?

These are similar to the ones that sold, but with a few subtle differences.  The ones that sold the attached white label at the top reads R27 but these read lot R36.

 

Here is the link to the pair that sold for reference...

No. The blended R27's were from their RRL Overalls line. Japanese blue line selvedge, loose weave denim made from a 86/14% cotton/linen blend. They look to be natural dyed as well. They have a deer skin patch and all the bells and whistles that the Overall buckle backs have. They are very, very slubby. Wear and fit great. You can occasionally find washed/worn versions for sale.

I want those jeans with the cinch and suspender buttons so bad. Is that a style they release often?

How's the stock in terms of variety and larger sizes at the Flagship store at Madison?  Passing by NY for a day, and its much closer to my hotel than the downtown RRL only stores

Go to the store on W Broadway they have a huge selection and great staff. I found the store on madison lacking compared to w broadway and there was one associate who spent the whole time on the phone.

Interesting, I went to the store on Madison last Sunday, and there was just one associate (an Asian looking guy), who spent all the time I was there on the phone. I was pretty pissed and thought I would complain, but then I gave up. Now I am tempted to call them and formally complain--that's pretty unacceptable. 

 

Fwiw, there was a lot less stuff compare to the RRL Bleeker street store.
