I am pretty sure that AB fits does not have SBU right now... However, Theodore Man in the Golden Triangle area in LA does. If you like that styling, I would recommend Gilded Age, which, imo, has better finishes and comparable to better denim. Same price range.

oh, thanks for the heads up. The reason I like SBU is due to the lack of back pocket design and general discreetness of them. Does the Gilded Age ones have clean back pockets like the SBU's? thanks so much!

Yes, AFAIK. Why don't you take a look at Helmut Lang, APC, or 5EP? All these are cheaper than SBU, and do not have back pocket designs...

I saw a few pairs of SBU's at Wilkes Bashford in the Stanford Mall on Saturday (May 13). $425 a pop.

SBU .. Strategic Business Unit. The worst name for a denim line in the history of humanity.
