    Website pics show hidden rivets. I don't have a whole lot of experience with cone denim, but the times I've handled it the fabric was definitely softer and less substantial than the Japanese stuff. Not to say it's better or worse, but definitely different and a thing of its own.

    I'm waiting on some fit pics and measurements of these. Is the rise the same as straight leg model?

    i wasn't aware that Cone made denim that heavy. I thought the heaviest they went was 14. Carry on.

    Except they have got to be 12 oz. I have seen/felt plenty of 14.5, 16, 17 and 21 oz denim. These are light. Salesman said they were 12. Site must be dead wrong.

    Also, everybody that has tried them on this thread has said that they feel much lighter than the standard denim RRL uses.

    Cone Mills do make 16oz but this fabric for RRL is an exclusive. Most of the fabric produced at Cone is available to all brands that's why some of it is quite generic and a little boring. I believe
    Levi's have the exclusive on the Cone Mills Shrink to fit fabric but other fabrics in LVC are generic open source fabrics.


    They are definitely 12oz, i checked instore today. Definitely a mistake on the website.

    Yeah, it's kind of a tease... I don't believe RRL has made a 16oz before, would have been cool.

    I got in my head that I was going to see if my store had the Roper wash denim in stock. Then I looked at the website again. Didn't realize these are $390! Yikes. Guess I'll try to see them in person anyway, but doubt I'll buy.

    I had the same reaction to the Black Blue jean. They did a very similar wash back in the day in slim fit and I've always thought about it. But at $390, that's just crazy.

    I saw the Black Blue jean, as well - I have the old slim fits, and it's a great wash. I didn't notice the $390, though...

    Anyone notice how much the Yen fell in recent weeks? Now would be a good time for RL to stock up on Jap denims...

    Good idea. I don't think there's any hurry, though. Their finance minister claims there is more devaluation to come.

    But does this make it harder for resellers in Japan? i.e.: more outlet merchandise stays in the States?

    Definitely and not even just "outlet" but Retail stores will have a harder time moving merchandise because Japanese will have less money to work with and less money for travel expenses.

    I'm curious to see RL's profits next quarter seeing how much Japanese tourism impacts their sales.

    Give In Style starts April 4th but RRL is excluded. So says Dastig to me.
