Among other things. The importance of chainstitching is of similar importance in life, apparently.

I know how that feels. I feel the same way about my vanilla icecream. between an RB1, Imperial King and a pair of Eternals in a similar cut, though, which would you go for? Just off the top of your head.

you guys are so funny.
The things about it is that the best or favorite jean is based on personal opinion.
VERY VERY few people including people on this forum still don't know that much about the denim to wear they can smear another person opinion. In that I mean the combination of cottons to the little mom and pop mills that really make incredible denim if that helps. I am not the best typer or speller and this discussion will take way to long so in short.
It would be like comparing fine wines.

I don't think think I've seen Eternals in a cut that would really be me, but I would go for the Eternals if such a cut existed. It would be a tough choice between these and the RB1s, since I really like the Rag & Bone back pockets and minimalistic details (the crotch stitching is quite well designed, for example), but he deciding factor, given similar fits, would be the superior denim quality and durability of the Eternals. As it stands, however, the RB1's are most flattering to my physique (although I am partial to the slightly slimmer RB6 and RB8 cuts as well).

BTW, vanilla icecream is a good base, but you need some embellishments. I actually had a decent cinnamon/vanilla with walnuts ice cream recently that blew my mind.

I agree with this completely.

i prefer mine more mundane, like plain vanilla root beer floats or ice-cream topped waffles. :P there's a understatedness to vanilla that i like, though vanilla-cinnamon with walnuts sounds fantastic. I'm just shooting off eternals because some of their jeans i've seen have worn beautifully. I've seen Geowu's APC pictures but there's this guy with 6 month old eternals that i am in love with.

Eternals are really well made and fade magificiently, but the cuts I've tried on just look funny on me. If you want a super dark, repro style jean that will take significantly longer to wear in than will a pair of Eternals, but will give you great pay off in the long run, try Samurai. Of course, AFAIK, there are no stockists for either brand in the US, and you will have to pay reamage fees to get them shipped from Japan via a middleman unless you have a Japanese hookup. Sugarcanes are also very nice repro jeans in a variety of models and interesting fabrics. Unlike the other brands, however, they are available in the States. I think that Mauro's Denim Bar does carry these, as does history preservation.com.

Finally got to try on some Rag Bone RB11s this weekend....they were surprisingly slim, not skin tight, but very trim straight leg. Selvage denim reminded me of Nudie's dry non-selvage in weight/texture/feel. Tried them on and the butt area was a bit odd, not saggy but didn't seem to fit right, at least on my nip ass. The detailing is very nice but for $300+ retail it seemed too high for a pair of jeans that fit a bit off.
post #309 of 364
where did you buy them?
I am selling the RB-11 for $275.00
post #310 of 364
I didnt buy them but I tried them on at Barneys. The RB11 dry selvage was $315.

I love Barney's they will keep me in busniess for many years.
The Rb-11 dry selvage should be $275.00
I have them if you want them and as always shipping is free.

We have recently added Agave Jeans to our product mix as well as t-shirts from Lambretta. The jeans are the Waterman model in the Cortez finish which is a slightly sanded denim. LaGuy can be more specific about the wash but the fit is the best I've ever worn. They are $185.00.

They are a pretty decent jean for someone who is a little more conservative and wears jean strictly on the weekends - very comfortable, though not a denimhead jean. Very suitable for Gary's customer though (updated American Trad?) Check out the site: www.agavedenimsmith.com.

Im looking for another air of Jeans, particularly in a grayish/blackish tint. What do you guys think of these: http://www.revolveclothing.com/produ...s/PDC-MJ52.jsp . I tried them on at Bloomingdales and liked the slimmer bootcut fit but was scared off by the price (though now on sale). Also, I kinda like that its an odder blue/black type sheen to it

Down side is the Zipper fly
