The RGT - I was able to save a lot of money in production for the following reasons, which allowed me to pass along those savings to you.
1. I bought over 1,000yds of this Cone Denim
2. I took out a lot of the details that are on my other jeans. Hidden pen pocket and patch, hand silk screened pocket bag, single needle back pocket detail, lining in back pockets, no contrast fabric on fly, un-branded buttons on fly - when you take steps out of the production process it cuts costs, it's that simple.
3. I made 250 pairs of RGT jeans. the first run I did on the Standard Issue, Sk, and Stanton was 120 in total. That adds to the price per unit.
I hope that helps.
All in all the quality of fabric, construction, and overall final product was not at all compromised I just wanted to make a simple jean at a lower price point.
