I just got a pair and they def dont feel 16oz. Which makes sense since I just looked and the website description is switched to 14.5oz now.

I guess people will try to sell anything.

Is there an official RL thread? looking for a utility jacket that is displayed on the site with the "Bring it back" Polo bear knit. However, the jacket is not shown anywhere on the site for sale.

whats so limited about those limited edition raw slim fits? the fact that its japanese and not the new norm of cone denim? lol thats ridiculous

at least those olive/grey ones are a unique color but these are just what the old original slim fits were or am i missing something?

I wonder the same thing. It's not numbered, so it's kinda hard to tell how many pieces are produced.

 

I mean everything is limited, so why not put limited edition on everything they sell?

Its a different Japanese denim than what they used to use. Much rougher and more slubby. I havent done a hot soak on them yet but theyre going to wear/fade totally differently then the old ones. Different dye process too. Heres a side by side comparison. LE ones on the bottom, a pair of unworn regular Japanese Slim Fits on the top

Given that almost every size sold out overnight online and everything in store sold out under size 31 in one day, id say they didnt make many.

Denim looks really slubby, would love to see nicer shots of them in real life. Probably made only like 50-100 of them since they sold out of most sizes so quickly.

 

If they were numbered they would run for more $$$. $300 vs the usual $240 isn't a huge jump in price either compared to most of the other L.E numbered pieces. You can see from stock photos the denim is definitely higher quality, more interesting than their usual Japanese/Cone denim.

 

I like seeing more Japanese fabrics on their shirts and jeans being marketed as "Limited Edition" to showcase certain must have pieces vs the rest of the Polo-esque collection they keep rehashing every season.

 

ETA: Dave pretty much summed it up.
