couple of questions for denim gurus...

couple of questions for you denim gurus....

1. does this look like a legit source for reasonably priced Nudie jeans?
http://www.jepboutique.com/Merchant2...ory_Code=nudie

2. recently bought this diesel 'jubeth' jacket in vegas-- one of my favorite casual items ever purchased. i really like the zippered sleeves, and can wear it with a t-shirt, buttondown, or even with a shirt and tie [if you're weird enuf to try it]



any ideas for something similar to this jacket? would like to buy something kinda like it.

3. what are the general thoughts on Rock & Republic jeans? also while in vegas, liked them so much i ended up buying two pairs (both in the 'henley' model, to different styles). I know, overpriced and already broken-in/ various washes, but what do you think of the brand, etc.?



thanks!

I think R&R makes very elegant jeans, fitting and flattering. Also their washes aren't particularly far out and overdone in general, which is always a good thing. Leave that kind of thing to A&F.

Can't find a stock photo right at the minute, but I have several different versions of G-Star's 'Studs' jacket - one in distressed denim, one in black, and one in army green. Slim fit, like your Diesel jacket, but with a cafe racer style collar. And, luckily, almost logo-free, except for a tiny tag on one arm.

I'll take some photos when I get a minute.

Isn't rock&republic victoria beckham's brand...?

Yes there is a VB line in their products, however those are crap, their more standard Roths are way better. Judge not the company by the dirt that VB wears (while looking slutty and not-hot in the process)

If Rock and Republic tone down on the logos, they would be pretty good.

I'm thinking maybe if i could find a cool jacket in tan or olive, that might be good to wear with jeans-- thoughts? gotta love the zippered sleeves, reminds me of a motorcross/ cycle jacket

actually, what do ya think of this one?

The Nudies look legit, but you should try to find them from a european shop.

oipolloi.com (uk) has dry selvage ralph's for almost the same price as you are paying there.

As for the rest, I wouldn't.

If you want a good take on a biker jacket, take a look at a brand I am repping www.michaeljkrell.com. Check out the pics on the site. It has the arm zips, as well as a really interesting pocket detail. As luck would have it, a couple of samples he sent me were a little too big in the shoulders for my liking, and I asked him to redo them for me, but I've seen your build (you are a shorter, muscular 40-42 R, right?,) and the samples (they are in a great chocolate brown - I have a version of the "denim" jacket in the same material and color) would probably be right for you. They retail a little more than the Diesel jackets, but are really a lot better constructed, with Italian made buttons, full bemberg lining, and terrific finishing and trims. Probably as well constructed as Rag & Bone jackets, though the cutting is still being played around with. If you are interested, PM me, and I'll see what I can do.

I like that jacket, though.

Urban Outfitters is a good store for odd items. A lot of the times, I found a couple of White Label Nike Tees. If the shipping was monsterous, I'd buy one.

I like the look of the 555 Soul jacket you picked out. Side vents - it's very you.
