Treat em rough it's written on the jeans, website, adds. Everywhere. I babied my jeans and after wearing them for 6 months and not every day they are falling apart. DO NOT INVEST 200+ for these jeans they are cheap and garbage

I got a pair cheap offa Gilt when they were still MIJ and had the multicolored button fly; I've had them since 2010 and they're still going strong. Now they're made in China, so I'm not surprised quality has gone down. What's more, the latest jeans lack a lot of the details the old pairs had (including multicolored buttons).

Do not want.

Also, there was already a thread for PRPS, which you would've found if you'd bothered to search for it:

PRPS has several lines: PRPS Goods & Co (made in China), PRPS Heirloom (made in USA), just PRPS (made in Japan), PRPS Noir (made in Japan as well).

 

They're identifiable by the model number. If it starts with an E, they're made in China. If they start with a P, made in Japan. Not sure about Heirloom and Noir lines, though.

 

AFAIK the denim in all of them is japanese.

BTW, I have been wearing a raw pair of made in Japan PRPS for well over a year and I've had no problems with them other than a small crotch blowout that I repaired, but that happens even with top repro brands.

 

They're on the lighter side of the scale when it comes to denim weight, though.

Purple and orange, yes (I've seen purple and white in other models).

 

 

BTW I like the denim and how it's fading. I don't know how it compares to other brands, though, as this was my first pair of raw denim and I thought PRPS was a good choice given that I got them for around 150€, and they are made in Japan from zimbabwean cotton and bla bla bla.

 

What I don't like a lot is the cut, they're too straight for my current taste (they're Barracudas). I would like to have a pair of Ramblers (the tapered model) for my next raw jeans.

Is it really that bad? A couple of days ago, I ordered a new pair of PRPS raw denim in the Fury fit. It's not higher-end PRPS, but I hope the quality is still on point. I already have a pair of predistressed PRPS in the Fury fit, and I'm loving how it feels on me. The fit is perfect.

I picked a pair of these up the other day.  I think I like them but because I keep my wallet in my right rear pocket, the folded of the pants is starting to bother me
