Thanks for the reply. Interesting.. That seems counter-intuitive, but is also what someone else told me. Looks like I'll size down one.

Just tried on some fit 1's. I love the aggressive taper. Surprised there isn't more talk on the RB denims..

It's a brand we used to discuss a lot.  Just has sorta fallen off the map, in terms of being "ahead of the curve".  In about 2003-2006, it had really strong design and was a very strong concept.  These days, it makes good pieces that are not exciting, and I would say the same about the jeans.  Still, a good choice for staples.

I'd say it took a dive in terms of quality when Theory bought the company. Now, few things other than jeans are made in the USA and those have gone from being made in NC to NY to now LA, CA. The jeans used to all retail for $200+, were made from great, elegant denim (most were resin-rinsed, one-wash; some were raw; none had pre-distressing or 'stretch') and had construction details otherwise only seen on Japanese-made jeans. Now, I'd consider them great go-to jeans if you'd otherwise buy 7s, Diesels, Hudson, or other department store jeans, but they are the best of that breed, rather than in a different class altogether.

LA Guy turned me on to 3sixteen recently, and in terms of denim they seem a bit more like what RB used to be (but they're all raw; some even unsanforized). Quality and ability to dress up seem similar from what I've seen thus far.

anyone got fit pics of the denim? The Fit 1's are highly praised for their fit in the other trendy brand threads

just received a pair of the Rag & Bone Archive Fit 2 black selvedge denim for 30% off at East Dane. I figured the Archive version would be better quality since it's 100% selvedge. The denim does seem pretty nice, on the thin side. Construction is just okay, I can see a few loose threads from the get go. Fit is similar to APC New Standard (so slim straight) maybe a little more taper at the hem but I can't tell cause they're so long. The front rise is pretty short though (9" on sz 29) so I'm returning them. 

 

I think if you're okay with shorter rise, the Archive jeans are pretty good raw denim, especially on sale. Fit 1 looks like it fits similar to Acne Ace or SLP whatever (super tapered).

Just got a pair of Archive Fit 3 and they are phenomenal. Perfect denim choice for lifters fit-wise, and the denim is great.
