Not sure why you'd recommend APC to the guy below when he's clearly asking for RT help or for anything dark/overdyed but...
So I am looking into to getting a nice pair of denim. I'm new to this. My go to jean right now is the Levi 511 skinny. I don't consider them to be skinny just fit well. I am really looking into Rogue Territory jeans, they have a great mission statement and from being from CA I like that they are made here, it coincides with my moral philosophy, buy as local as you can. I can't seem to find any reviews on the fit of the jeans. I am looking at the Dark Stantons and want to know if anyone has any experience with them? Are they a really heavy weight jean, how is the fit, tts, when the say slim fit is it really slim fit (so many jeans I have tried on claiming to be slim fit are far from it) and would this be a jean to that can be carried over into summer?
If anyone has any other suggestions for a dark selvage jean under or around $200 let me know I am open to hearing ideas. It's hard to judge a jeans fit from pictures on the internet. Unfortunately I am not around anywhere that sells higher end jeans and therefore can't try them on. Thanks.
There's a Rogue Territory thread that you might want to look at, both on here and on superfuture. If you don't know denim outside of the 511 then yes, they will feel more substantial (heavier.) There are quite a few fit pics of Stantons online, as well as measurements on the RT website, so you can figure out for yourself how slim they are compared to your 511. The basic advice is to go TTS but it depends on body type. I feel like I could size one down in the waist but then it might be a bit skinny in the legs.
The summer question is subjective. Do you wear jeans in the summer? Good. These are jeans.
