I need some help to id this PRPS jeans http://www.bluefly.com/PRPS-black-se...301/detail.fly I can't tell if this is the impala or barrucada fit. it doesn't give the usual PRPS style number (which I can't decipher anyway), but it says "relaxed fit". Anyone familiar with prps knows the measurement of this jean? i'll pass if the hem is wider than 8.5".....
Ha, thanks. I get their e-newsletters all the time but totally blanked. They usually have good sales, too.

I think I've become too much of a snob to wear something mainstream like ES regardless of how great their washes are compared to anything else in that price range/aesthetic. 5EP makes great denim but oddly I can't say I've ever seen their washed pairs in person. KMW, however, is really nice in person. Nudie makes a wash for every man, woman, and child. I'd also recommend RRL for some subtle washes. I think Mauro is/was carrying the raw/one wash and light models but there are still quite a few pairs of the older stuff on ebay, a good chunk of them under $100, that have very subtle whiskers and distress. They're a total bargain.
You'll have to look around but RRL doesn't really make anything that's as slim as the NS and with as high of a rise. You might have to compromise but since they'll be more "beater" jeans than anything else I don't think it'll be that big of a deal, especially for the price and the quality.
