any opinions?

The SS has a pretty unique cut that no other jean has, to my knowledge. They are the perfect fit, in my opinion if you have a relatively lean body type. The RB15 are really cool too. Try them both on and see which one fits you best!

where can you get the rb15s

Go with the Nudies (or if you want R&B, go with RB6).

I'd say go with the R&B. The Nudie fit is good, for sure, but R&B is in a different league in every other regard. Plus the R&B fit *is* really good. I just can't say if I like it more than the Svens.

I'd say that it depends on what you are looking for. Both jeans fit well, the RB15 considerably slimmer than the Svens, and with a slight taper compared to the true Sven straightleg. If you are looking for a beat around jean that has a good fit and will give you a good fade, go with the Sven. If you are looking for a more versatile jean (Nudies, with their orange stitching and back pocket design, are, imo, strictly casual) and want to keep the darker cast for a longer time, go for the RB15. I would say that the RB6 is actually more versatile than the RB15. Best thing is just to go to a store and try them on. Where are you located? Both brands have pretty wide distribution.

I love my rb15s. Period.

I have both of these jeans and love them both. I think the Sven is a slightly better fit for me, but the R&B is a bit higher quality, which is not to say that the Nudie isn't a very high quality jean. For $130 or whatever some ppl were paying for the RB15s, they're a no brainer, as the Sven can't be gotten too cheaply for the most part, $160 or so is about the lowest.

Um, Ian, Scott Kuhlmann, and Blackbird, to begin with? Is there a Barneys? Dude, just look up shops on citysearch or in your local yellow book.

Those Rb15s sound killer. Do they come in a 30" inseam?
