Quality and Fit is fantastic so they are staying but seriously it is disturbing how many of their descriptions wind up containing inaccurate information.

Which buckle backs are the Chinese ones? I bought a few in the last few years and they all say Made In USA of imported fabrics. There is no mention of China on any tags, all the tags say USA.

It's called bias tape, and it's probably there for a reason - likely to hide some loose ends of the fabric

That's the pair I got.  Like I said, very happy with them otherwise, but definitely tagged as made in China.

Hopefully they will keep doing the Japanese stuff for special makeups and limited editions. My slim fit slates are 14oz Japanese, made in the US and badass.

Pardon the ignorance, but how would one typically tell the origin of the denim?  I know previous pairs of RRL jeans I've had have indicated on the pocket, but these appear unmarked.  I would think that maybe the fact that the description online says 'imported fabric' that it may be Japanese but then again I think it's been shown time and time again how those descriptions cannot be relied upon.

For $390 it's definitely China. The USA bucklebacks that are distressed like the ones I recently bought have a $590 MSRP. Most of the 1936 washed ones made in the USA of Japanese denims are $490-590 as well.

 

Regardless, they are some sick looking pants.

Not really. I noticed some very minor itch late in the day, but nothing to be concerned about

It's not on the website currently. I haven't seen it on other reseller's websites either. Not sure what they plan for it for the future.

Picked up this sweatshirt Friday along with a few other things and some sale items for my girlfriend. I was looking for something casual and it arrived better than expected, liking the heathered center and feel.

I was told the fabric for the Yuma pant is from Amhot - Japan. Construction must take place in China.

Thank you very much for the info.  As I mentioned the quality seems great, so that is good to know.

Ahh I was unaware of the typical pricing of a pair of USA made buckle-backs.  That would have been a giveaway for sure.  Very glad I got them, here is a really bad picture of them paired with the Dixon Jacket...

I don't think they are one sale, but if you're still in the market for a Dixon jacket, American Rag in Los Angeles has a full run of sizes (as of yesterday afternoon). You can call them for an order.

Before you say that, check out Red Cloud jeans. Small manufacturer of high quality, high end jeans made in China.
