    Wow. A seriously small operation. Is there a price list anywhere online? Any idea of the prices for their raw denim? Obviously this is in the sub-$200 thread, but still.

    Thanks!

    Huh?

    Grab Roy's jeans for $150, while you can. There's no other jean made with that kind of attention to detail, and such a good choice of fabrics at anything like that price.

    +1.

    Hidden rivets aren't bad. It's a full cut, but not everything needs to be slim. Definitely worth trying on.

    Is the sizing on Roy's closer to an APC NS or Rescue?

    personally all the detailing and stuff are interesting, but it's just the brand on the leather patch. might have been better if he put his initials instead? I dunno..

    he means "the unbranded brand" denim. i think they sell it at one of the mall shops you guys have in the states. basically no frills raw selvedge. think naked and famous but lower quality and price.

    i'd be interested in pics.

    Oh I see, pardon my lack of knowledge. I did some google search just now and found that the denim is 14.5oz? for $78? gosh that's cheap!

    do you think it's a good brand to recommend to a friend who knows nothing about raw denim? I'm not sure though. Personally I think you have to invest money in your raw, since then you'll be investing your time as well.

    I think it's a good brand, especially for the price, and you can easily get them cheaper than advertised because UO runs sales/coupons all the time. I have a pair and they're holding up really well. They aren't going to stretch out a million sizes, nor are they gonna shrink a whole lot. The denim is nice and thick, the stitching looks good, they fade fairly well, and in my experience, you can just order your true (vanity) size, so if you wear a 32 in most everything, you can get a 32 and not worry. The copper buttons and rivets also add a nice touch, as they should oxidize with wear, giving them a nice vintage look as the denim itself fades.

    There's a sale going on at Albam right now. The code 'grazia10' will give you 20% off until midnight [GMT]. With a weak pound, a pair of jeans are a steal at around ninety dollars! Hope someone see's this and benefits!

    Showing up as $103 for me before potential customs. Is there a chart somewhere that has full measurements for the straight leg and regular jeans? Need waist/thigh/rise/hem measurements before I can even consider them and I don't see it listed anywhere on their site.

    Need something for <$100 or on the lower end of the $100 range...

    Uniqlos were selling for <50, if you can find a proxy or live near a store.
    Cheap Monday isn't selvage, and usually runs skinny, but they're under a buck too.

    Check out Four Horsemen. They have Unbranded at a steal in Canadian dollars. Not sure exactly the price, or if they're even online. But call Guy and he'll give you all the information. Really helpful and informal. Also a lot of Naked and Famous at a really good price level.

    Unbranded seems to be getting some good rep here. Mall/chainstore brands were left off this list in case anyone was wondering why Unbranded doesn't appear, but glad to hear.

    Roy owner pics would be welcome. Seems he could use the love from us here, like Ande Whall. Craftsmanship should be recognized.
