I'm tempted to get one myself. Maybe later this year. Sounds very cool.

Yeah i saw them down at the blue bee here in Santa Barbara. The leather is beautiful. Remember to leave it out in the sun for a couple of days to tan it. I wonder if there is any way to get a belt to be made of saddle leather. Hmm.

red moon makes some amazing ones, but they're obviously very pricey.

I was thinking of one that was hand tooled, but not dyed to accentuate the tooling.

jeans that last 6-8 months?
that fits my definition of flimsy.
i personally think rogans are overpriced junk.

anyway, it seems im late. this thread has evolved into wallet discussion.

Is the wallet the one that is available at bluebeetleonline.com
post #22 of 36
Yeah, the Natural is the one we are talking about, but there is another that isn't quite as big as that one, that runs about $125 and isn't listed. My only question would be on the durability... the leather seemed a bit thin when I looked at it. How does yours look BlvdDandy? Does it seem like it will hold up stuffed with tons of cash? Not that I have tons of cash, but just in case.

The one I have is like the black one selling for $150 on the site, only in the natural leather. As far as thickness is concerned, I'd say it's pretty thick (for example, thicker than my Mulholland Bros. wallet which has held up really well).

What this I hear about a sun tan?

Rogans are overpriced (isn't all premium denim?) but they aren't junk. For what they are, they are good. Interesting details and cuts, if they're your bag.

yeah if you leave it in the sun for a few days the leather will tan itself and become slightly darker brown. Then you can begin breaking it in by putting some leather conditioner on it.

RNRSWITCH- you can get a very, very nice handmade unstained leather belt here. http://www.leathergoodsconnection.com/ i know the site looks kind of poorly done, but i promise it's legit. Check out the "evolution of leather goods" thread of superfuture if you want to see one of their belts

LA Guy- Rag and Bone uses selvage liberally too. My RB6's have a selvage coin pocket for gods sake.

I'd go with the Rogans. People keep refering to them as flimsy, but I've had mine for close to four years, apart from some repatching of the back hem they have worn quite gracefully.

I've been supporting the skinny jean movement for a while but my balls love Rogans!.

As for Jeans Shop, aren't they a part of Red Tiger Trading, basically there expensive Lucky Brand, uuuuccccccccccccchhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!. Go with RPM 45 if selvage is so alluring.

That's funny because I have been looking at their ranger belts for some time. I was wondering if the leather is an actual saddle leather. I know they have bridle leather for the ranger belts. I am almost ready to bite on one of those. Wow I just noticed they updated their wallets section. I am seriously considering buying the ponderosa or some other natural shrunken grain leather wallet from them. The price is about right.

The Ponderosa wallet resulted from when I mailed Henry (leathergoodsconnection) a photo of a Red Moon. I think he did a pretty good repro, especially since he also went to the trouble to find someone to handle the leather braid. I previously ordered a belt through the site, which turned out very nice, too.

I wasn't aware that the RB6 had selvedge on the ticket pocket (never checked, I'll have to), but that's besides the point. Rag & Bone is pretty mcuch the only game in town in it's particular niche (sort of dressed up denim). In the "Western" style jeans, which is the market Jean Shop is going after, 5EP is much better in everyway (better construction, denim, cut,) as is Kicking Mule Workshop, although, as someone else mentioned, they have to work on cuts. Any number of Japanese repros also beat Jean Shop. In the updated Western/urban vibe, Nom de Guerre uses better denim and trims, and imo, have better cuts. And for rock bottom prices, APC is a better bet.

That said, the leather goods (especially the bags) do look very nice, if really expensive.)
