Yes, they are, although I think Epaulet has a similar model..

I was hoping to roll them up to wear with my AE longwings and Alden ranger mocs.  

Got my Portland wash in the mail today. Beautiful wash! I must admit though, they fit tight compare to the other RRL that I have. Not sure whether this is due to the Cone denim (all my other RRL jeans are made of the Japanese denim) or to the cut. What's your experience with them? Did they stretch a lot after you began wearing them. I actually never had Cone denim so I am not sure how it tends to behave down the road, 

 

Fwiw, they are also noticeably shorter. I typically wear 32x32 but I got these in 32x34 thinking I'd be able to roll the cuffs. However, the inseam is identical to my 32' jeans.

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.
