Pretty funny that these J Crew Wallace and Barnes chinos appear to be an exactly copy of the RRLs down to the 60 days without washing recommendation:

I like J Crew but they can be shameless sometimes

LOL, that is exactly what I thought! even if they were cheaper it would be very hard to convince me to move from RRL.

Speaking of which, could anyone recommend selvedge rigid chinos from another brand? I know Levi's made and crafted offered a couple colors. Wondering where else I can find a pair for sub $175ish. I really like the feel of the 10.5oz and 11+oz LE chinos offered a few years ago but the newer season fabric is underwhelming

could just order a bunch of pairs and hope to get one from the 10.5oz lot like I did

Totally agree with the J.Crew sentiments. To use another members description, they're so "shameless." Don't get me wrong, they make some good stuff now and then, but ultimately they're taking (some of) RRL's image and charging more for it! That just boggles my mind.

N&F has a few in different colors and fits--made in canada, japanese fabric, you can find them on sale for $70 range. However, they are semi-soft and not raw like RRL (you can try starching them up).

I bought these two Shuttle Notes shirt from J.Crew and I happen to like them a lot. They have a nice slim fit. They are little long but that works well for me since I'm tall and they are really well made, they have a triple stitch runoff which is an interesting detail. I would highly recommend these shirts to anyone who is a fan of RRL.

They're not exactly the same... different buttons, different stitching, different sized belt loops, different color selvage, doesn't look as rigid either.

 

They say to go some time without washing because that's what you're supposed to do with selvage, isn't it?  Are customers not allowed to know because RRL did it first?

 

There are so few entries in the selvage chino market that I, for one, welcome a little competition.

they're such a clear rip off though based on the details, even the pricing...and then they have the audacity, as j crew does, to charge more than the original

don't disagree with the last comment necessarily, but if you're going to enter the market, add something, don't just poach what already exists

Are the J Crew ones made in China?
post #16365 of 20082

J crew is moving up there in the world.

 

I think it was either Nudie or LVC that pushed the whole "don't wash raw denim for 6 months" thing back in the early 2000s.

 

6 months is such an arbitrary number.. it all depends on how hard it's worn (or how smelly.)
