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?

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

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

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.

Good for you Dave on scoring a pair.  I called around and got the same story. Although all hope is not lost, according to the Bleecker St. store it see's 3 pairs of 36" in transit to them.   On another note this this seasons parka is really starting to grow on me.  I was going to pick up a Buzz Rickson Parka, but I think this looks just as nice if not better and is much more friendlier to my wallet. What do you guys think?

Wearing the olive ball cap and N-5A vest. The vest is such a warm piece with awesome detailing.

Must be a vintage piece or something. Because it's not part of the new blue label groups explorer nor country gentlemen that I have seen thus far.

the website also mentions that they use natural indigo dye...I was under the imporession every RRL denim used natural indigo ? If not, that;s disappointing.

100% natural indigo jeans run $800+ and are only dyed 75% to save indigo and to differentiate the denim and are extremely rare.

 

All jeans use synthetic indigo (or very tiny % of natural indigo blend) No brand (including RRL, Levis from 1897+) has used natural indigo.

 

If words like "true" and "pure" indigo have made you buy overpriced jeans thinking they use natural indigo, then you have been duped by clever marketing.

Just received two pairs of denim from RRL Clothing, thanks dude! Got a pair of low straight Midlands and slim fit rigids. Makes sense that RRL keeps making the Midland wash, not an extreme wash or anything and looks even better in person. Slim fit rigids are stiff as cardboard, do you guys presoak for a bit? Could use some shrinkage in the inseam.

Try to go as long as you can without soaking first... After the first 2 weeks the jeans should be broken in a bit, and you'll love the turn out after the first couple months without water touching them with consistent wear.

I recently bought the limited edition olive raws in slim fit.. And don't plan on doing anything to these for awhile, excited to see the fade progression in this weird olive-like color
