I had the opportunity to handle and try on the new Limited Edition Roe Bucks recently, and I have to say, they're pretty awesome. The texture of the denim reminds me a bit of the "Boss" buckle-back jeans released Spring 2013. If you're looking to cop, be sure to buy your size, as they're sanforized.

That would be my guess too. In China, a factory contracted to fill an order for an international company will often have leftover materials after completing the order (for 500 shirts... or 20,000). It is common practice for the workers to continue producing the item, sometimes in a simplified form, until they run out of the material / trimmings / etc. These extra garments are then sold through many different channels. Taobao is the defacto online site, while the brick and mortar chain Hot Wind excels at getting these garments sold directly to the public for cheap.

I don't know where this shirt was manufactured, and it doesn't really matter. It seems like this practice has become increasingly widespread. Personally, I think it's an interesting form of resistance to the inequalities of globalization, but I do love selvedge gussets. And they skimped out on that detail.

It's been awfully quiet and bicker-free recently. I just can't put my finger on what's changed...:puzzled: .

I'm looking to get my first pair of RRL's and the once-washed denim is what I'm itching to buy. Has anyone had any experience with them so far in terms of fading? I have been wearing APCs and N&Fs so far, so I'm looking to upgrade.

My only raws are RRL and LVC. I wear the LVC constantly and they don't fade for shit. I wear my RRL straight legs probably half that amount and I can already see better fades. the RRLs also leave plenty of indigo on my car seat

Here's my straight leg that started out as the "rinse" model: I'd say they're pretty middle of the road in terms of fading speed; not fast, but not slow either.

12 months, 3 washes






16 months, 4 washes

Wow white balance issues.....I'll take accurate pics soon.

Anybody have any slims in a 28 waist they want to sell? Preferably something heavily washed/distressed/destroyed. Preferably a 30 or 32 inseam but open to whatever. Thanks!

post #21207 of 21552
Yea rrl are slow faders. Nothing like apc or naked and famous but the material and construction is far better. I've had my pair for almost 3 years without a lot of fading. Might just buy a washed pair from them.

after weeks of going back and forth with RRL to honor several orders for this vest that they kept cancelling, I finally got my Posadas vest

much darker in color than their webstore picture (real color below), and the buffalo nickel buttons are also muted and tarnished and not shiny whatsoever, so it's perfect as it is.... and doesn't require further antiquing

I love it

I wish that had kept that the way it looked in the lookbook for the season

^ too costumey for me, but to each his own

are you sure that's not a Ltd Ed piece they made out of it?

they used those pockets on the women's Posadas jacket and they came out awesome on that one

here it is:
