I hate them because there is absolutely nothing about the jeans to warrant the price tag they get, other than the "OMG DID YOU SEE MY TRUE RELIGION JEANS???"-factor.
I really dislike their artificial distressing. If you compare mall brands to distressing like 5ep or Earnest Sewn you can see a pretty big quality difference. Also the huge branding all over the jeans is an instant deal breaker to me. The R&R back pocket stitching is a joke.
I wonder how sales would be if TR or R&R released a pair of denim that was exactly the same as one of their top selling pairs, but with no branding. I bet it would bomb.

I've always disliked Nudie, but for good reason. They have way more blowouts than any other brand, imo they are overpriced (not by a ton though), and I think their back pocket stitching is pretty ugly, one of the worst of raw denim brands. The neon orange thread they use also doesn't help at all.
