My 2 cents. I saw these at Context a couple weks ago. I hadn't seen a pair of Nudies that I liked since I bought my Staight Svens (quite a while back) until I saw these. The fit is spot on for me and the heavier denim feels much nicer to me than that used on the RR's. Due to the heavier material they feel more substantial overall which gives them a leg up when I compare them to my Japanese denims. As was mentioned before, the color is deeper than other Nudie denim which is another plus. I haven't purchased them yet because they are at the bottom of my "want list" right now, but one of these days I'm going to pick them up.
