First Jeans: Nudie or RB? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to check out Villian right now. They had the RB6 for $200. I think this is the regular price for the non-Selvedge. I think Rolo has both the RRDS and the RB6 also. I'm going to check out Rolo on the way to Villian.

Only problem is I actually bought the RRDG from AB Fit yesterday and they only do store credit. I'm not a big fan of store credit.

Hey Steve,

I don't think Nudie fits overall one way or another, but they offer a pretty wide selection of cuts; see the fit guide at their website. Also a good representation of their aesthetic--distinctive pocket size/placement/stitching, emphasis on wearing them in/fading them. Most cuts are intended to be worn low, on the hips.

The most common cuts stateside are the Regular Ralf (bootcut, closer fit in the thighs, but not tight), Straight Sven (straight leg, lower rise), and bootcut Ola (low rise, slimmer, slight bootcut)--someone correct me if these are wrong, I haven't tried anything other than RR in awhile.

Their waist sizes run true to size to an inch or so big (so, size 34=34-35 waist).

Okay, LAST question before this thread dies.

So I've read all the negative stuff about PDC lately. Well 3 weeks ago, before I started reading here and really learning about denin, I bought a pair of PDC from the Rack for $70. Not the best price right now, but not the worst either. I bought them because they are REALLY soft, comfortable, and fit well. They are obviously not raw denim like the RRDS I'm thinking about getting. They are the 2-GTO-00. I know you guys used to like 1-GTO. So, should I return these (haven't worn them and still have tags)? Am I going to regret purchaing them 6 months down the road?

Thanks for helping out an aspiring denimhead.

Yes, I would return them. The new PDC are really low quality and will fall apart quickly. Spend the $70 on high quality jeans IMO. The PDCs that we used to like were made 3-4 years ago. For $70 you can buy ES Hutches from Nordstrom Rack or Saks Off 5th if you want distressed jeans of that type, or you could put it towards Nudie/RB/5EP.

Not to mention that once you get a pair of dry jeans, you basically won't ever wear any predistressed jeans again--at least not for a looooong time.

Thanks guys. Thats exactly the feedback I was looking for. Even though they are really soft and really comfortabe, I will be returning them tomorrow morning.

If you want to order before the weekend is up, fos5.com is selling the RRDS for $199 shipped, but the sale ends after the weekend. Just a heads up.

Just saw the replies (Monday night) and checked both oipolloi and fos5. Apparently I wear one of the more popular sizes, 30W. All the sites that I have looked at (including the sites with SF discounts) do not have 30W in stock. I am currently trying to get it from an e-bay merchant www_cultizm_com who seems to own a store in Germany and has 100% feedback with 970+ replies. He would be ~230USD shipped. He had my size a couple days ago but I didn't pull the trigger fast enough. Anyone else have any idea on where I can get these for that price or below? Thanks.
