As much as I LOVE the way the Dior's look, they are 1) out of my price range and 2)will be way too tight, and I don't necessarily like the baggy look either.

ICR is no more, I believe it was a husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend operation and they split so the company folded to. Heard this through the grapevine so don't hold me to it. There denim sucked ass but everything else was topnotch!.

This jackets probably three years old, still love it!.

Yeah - boyfriend, girlfriend, AFAIK. They split up, and apparently tried to work it out purely as business partners, but well, we know how these things work. I really hated their gimmick, and that biased me against the line from the onset. I never really got past that. I have to concede that their clothes were well designed and produced. But... well, I never liked their graphics since they always centered on the one gimmick. And yes, their denim sucked ass. And was severely overpriced.

Rye, what do you think of the newish Spurr line? I just got a pair of their classic cuts. Very well constructed, sort of plays on the "heritage theme", but the cut is definitely modern (unless they had 10" rises in the 1930's, and I have never seen that in person nor in the old Sears catalogues.) Lots of unnessary gimmicks (selvedge fly? Really?) But the construction is definitely solid, and the denim is amazingly saturated. They bleed like crazy though...

Spurr Jeans.

I've only seen the "raw classic fit".

From a professional standpoint it's a well made product but not distinctive enough considering it's competition, especially at $325, I don't think it's a realistic price point considering the financial climate this country is in and the bleak financial outlook for high price retail items in general.

From a personal standpoint as a denim customer the fit looks clumsy, the back patch is a turn off and for $325 I would purchase a better made product from RPM 45, or buy two pairs of APC and have some beer money left over.

The product is definitely not competitive at $325. It could definitely lose some gimmicks and retail at $200-250 or so, at about the same pricepoint as 5EP and Kicking Mule Workshop, which is where I think they ought to be thinking of as their native competition. I actually sort of like the back patch. It's very Western thrift. Sort of reminds me of those no name brand patches from random jeans you might find at Lo-Fi or something. As for the fit - I was skeptical at first as well - the rather wide true straight leg paired with a low rise seemed sort of incongruous. But after a nice hot soak, and some judicious stretching and shrinking (stretching while damp and blowdrying hot, repsectively), I made them fit pretty well. I do think that they need to change up their pattern if they are going to do well. Either a slightly higher rise (even a 1/2" would do) and slightly wider thighs, or keep the lower rise and tighter thighs and taper the jeans down to the knee, and peg leg them from there. Either would make the jeans significantly better.

As for APC, I was actually taking a look at the Rescue, and decided that it could probably use a redesign as well. My impression from both these jeans (Spurr and the APC Rescue) suffer from being too straight a leg...

You misunderstand me man. I don't think that there is anything wrong with the Rescue. I'm just saying that it could be better designed. Definitely, I think that they generally look more balanced than do the New Standards on a bigger guy - and for the money, it's definitely one of the best jeans out there. However, pretty much every design can be improved upon, imho. I personally think that the Anglaise, which the Rescue replaced, which had a little more of an antifit shape in the top block, and were just so very slightly tapered (they looked not unlike the old Diesel Kratt) was just a better designed jean. Now, whether it would look better than the Rescue on a specific person is something else altogether...
