    I have only had my RB15s for about a week, so I wouldn't know anything about fading.
    The denim is nice and somewhat streaky.
    They are not stretchy and will not strectch much in the waist due to the lining.
    They are slightly vanity sized. I bought a 32w and my natural waist is 34. To put things into perspective, I wear a size 30 in APC. The model I bought is selvedge and the denim between a light-weight and medium weight. Certainly softer and lighter than my APCs or Nudies. The details are really nice though and seem to have solid construction.

    If you are speaking about the Blade which is very streaky and skinny (rb 20 ), try calling blackbird; else I'm clueless.

    Are you talking about the new RB15s that are on Farinelli and Revolve? Do you mind posting fit pictures? Thanks.

    I would also like to see fit pics. I am a 34 at my waist where I wear my jeans. Is that what you mean by "true waist"? thx!

    He's trying to say that the Rag & Bone 15s this time around run a bit bigger than the tagged size, makes fat people feel better about the expansion in their waistlines. About 2" bigger?

    Cone mills makes the fabric for LVC . Taylor togs was a factory the constructed the garments but went out of Business.
    Cone is very much a live and making denim for a lot of people.


    And these days, Rag & Bone denim is produced at their own facility in NYC - using equipment bought from Taylor togs.

    I too have the R&B 15s (the new lightweight ones), and I love them. I'd post a pic but they're at the tailors right now being tapered. They're vanity sized as much as any other jean; I went with a 32 which is what I wear in pretty much everything. No real stretching so far even after like 2 weeks of wear.

    The rb-15 can be compated to a NS or the ksubi dee dee maybe a KMW rocker ( not as tight)
    rmember the weave is loose and the fabric is under 12.5 oz

    ^ really, i was under the impression that the hems on the NS and rocker were significantly smaller than on the rb15.

    so why is Rag & Bone so fond of using lightweight denim?

    I'd say its more relaxed than the KMW 1980 and the RRL Low Down Boot.. but its hard to judge because the denim is so soft and lightweight.

    I've gotten a few PMs/questions about what my R&B 15s look like. I took some shitty pics. I sized TTS and I had them shortened an inch and the leg openening tapered to 7.75" from 8.5"

    i got a pair of selvedge made in NY Rb11s TTS and they stretched a bit but fit great, with a belt.
    i have had them for 6 months now and they have faded a bit but not tons. no honeycombs either prob cause they are so loose.

    i love how light and soft the denim, i dont love the huge back pockets.

    can post pics if someone really wants.

    No the rb11s are straight leg. Probably like a rescue. 23s are the skinny fit.
