I'm pretty sure Volls does, but Zoovillage doesn't.

at kitchener.ch you can get RRDS for about 174 shipped.

at revolve you can get them for 184 shipped with the 30% first time customer discount. i didn't attempt to use any other codes, and i had to call revolve up to make sure they applied the 30%.

Volls ships to the US for about $25, IIRC.

That would have been great but I don't think I ever got a 30% off code; I signed up for the newsletter, too; nothing.

Have you considered any Japanese brands? Studio D'Artisan makes the sd-105 which is a slim, slightly bootcut jean (check them out at rakuten.co.jp/bears). There's a wealth of info on the other SF about Japanese denim and a sticky about how to order from Japanese stores.

Frankly I am a denim n00b as outlined in my first post. I have heard of the SD105 but I did not know it was bootcut. Me wantz flar3z, you see I'll look in to it, thanks! Edit: Woah, cheaper at Rakuten that the RRDS over here! How do they compare quality-wise?

Infinitely better denim, noticeably but not incredibly better construction. The fit, however, is not as modern. I don't think any of the Japanese brands fit as well as Nudie, though some of them do come close (and Studio D'Artisan is at the forefront of them).

Thank you. In regards to the fit, what do you mean (sorry, you know I am a n00b )? P.s. someone in an older thread mentioned the Wrangler 47's. Are those shrink to fit? How are they quality/size-wise? (Will Fok bitchslap me if I keep saying "flarez"? I cannot help it anymore, I have developed something akin to message board Tourette's )

The Nudies have lower back pockets, a more contoured waistband, larger front pockets, a flattering seat and overall a more European aesthetic (obviously this shouldn't come as a surprise).

The SD's, which are great, do not attract attention in such a manner that the Nudies do - when I say attention, I don't mean "Wow thats fancy pocket stitching." I mean, "Wow those jeans look great on you." My ralfs are pretty much the only pair of jeans I have that I've been complimented on the fit so much.

I see, thanks Brian. I am still at the stage where I can sort of see differences between cuts but cannot point out exactly what those are. That helps. But this forum has been pure suffering for my credit card, lol.

I had to search on google. I found a link (but I forget exactly where) that you paste in and then add your email address to the end. There are instructions. Just keep googling "revolve discount codes" and the like. I think it took me about 20min to find it. Though if you are ordering during business hours, just call them up and ask for it.

Update:

Got in the RRDS 30x32 yesterday from Revolve. While I was just barely able to button them up all the way (good sign, right ), something just did not look right. Plus there were some areas that were, uhm, applying undue pressure in the wrong direction. Anyway, cannot justify paying that much for something that did not look & feel right. Oh well. Maybe I will give the Ola's a whirl, don't know. There were also some selvedge dry RRL on eBay, I'll see what those are like.

Thanks for all the advice

rrl are very nice. id reccomend them to anyone. be aware that there are sizing issues with the made in japan ones, but if the ebayer is worth a shit they will give true measurements. for the going price on ebay, you cant beat them.

(the above statements are my opinion based on the 2 pair of made in usa rrl that i own. i doubt the quality could have changed that much, but you never know)
