Also, in your opinion, are these a good alternative to a second pair of RB6?
I would phone Mauro (DENIMBAR at Denimbar) and see what he has in stock. fos5.com, revolveclothing.com and matthewizzo.com also carry Nudies.
I personally really like Nudies, their increasing ubiquity and the ridiculous stateside prices for the selvedge models notwithstanding. The cuts of the SS and Ola are both very different from the RB6. Both are lower rise and the Ola, especially, is considerably slimmer in the leg (same size comparison, of course.) Nudie and Rag & Bone also have very different aesthetics overall, so yes, I would think that a pair of Nudies would be a nice addition to your wardrobe. It's nice to have different jeans for different occasions.
