I have the RK grey castes in a 31 and they seem to fit the same as my Natural Statons that are a 31....hope that helps

Will the Stantons stretch in the waist? I usually wear a size 28 in all pants and am worried that it will stretch.

they do stretch. I got size 28 and they were extremely difficult to button up the top two at first but now they fit perfect.

I normally wear a size 29/30 depending on the brand.
I have a review of them at http://sewnthroughaperture.com

Dark Stantons just arrived. Need a chainstitch hem, but can't wait to wear them. Color and fit are awesome.

Anybody plan on picking up the slubby stantons?  I'm about to place an order.

Honestly, $265 is a lot to ask for considering that PBJs only cost slightly more than that.

I've owned both brands and I doubt there will be anything between these stantons and a pair of PBJs that would warrant that price increase.  

 

Edit - just to add, for a lot of Japanese brands you're paying extra fees to have it imported and sold in the US.  You can find tons of brands on rakuten (like PBJ) for sale between 200-250 dollars.  Stores like blueingreen and selfedge are able to put a huge mark up on some brands, even more so if they have a contract with them that allows them to be the only retailer.

This implies that the PBJ are somehow markedly "better" than RT. I'm not sure that's entirely the case. Fabric and fabrication on the RT jeans is excellent, and fit counts for so much. For ex, there is in fact no cut that PBj makes (that I'm aware of) that will work for me the way I'd like--straight taper, w/ some room in thighs but small leg opening. So, it's irrelevant that the price is similar. For a hand made, unsan JP-source fabric jean, that's made in the US? It's on par w/ excellent offerings from 3sixteen+. What's the problem?

If you like another jean, great. Buy it. But that comparison as to why the price for RT isn't justified is flawed IMO.

I agree, I'm not sure if you understood me correctly though..  When I said "warrant that price increase" I was referring to the difference between the more expensive PBJs compared to Rogue Territory, as in the PBJs aren't better, not the increased price of the slub stantons.  I could see why what I said could be easily misunderstood though.

I don't mean to take anything away from RT, in fact I like the company. However, the fades and slubiness that PBJs produce are proven, while the RTs look great on paper, but we have no idea of how they'll fade.

 

I'm not saying that the Slub Stantons are bad, I'm just saying that for an extra few bucks, I can get a proven performer (also indigo/indigo PBJs if that's your thing). Nothing less and nothing more.
