    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    hmm.. if I'm a 32 in the RRDS and a 30 in the Rescues, which size should I opt for in the dark worn low down boot? I see some places are selling them for under $100 now, so I figured I should finally pull the trigger on a pair.

    Um, for the same fit, a 31 is probably closest, but a 30 will work as well.

    Does anyone know where 5ep sources their denim? The pair that I saw had an interesting selvage seam, similar to ones I've seen on 45rpm.

    Yeah, in the straight down zip but I haven't seen any sources for the the low down boot around $100?

    I'm not at all familiar with 5EP. Do they have a website? Also, I know the styling is more contemporary, but what makes them "better" than R&B?

    I wouldn't say that the two lines are really comparable, nor would I say that designs 5EP are more "contemporary". Rag & Bone jeans are dressier, I would say, more urbane, while 5EP jeans have a more western, classic, aesthetic. 5EP uses better denim, more durable and with more complex color, but the denim used by Rag & Bone is not at all bad. The price points are comparable. I would say that it comes down fit and to how your tastes run.

    Is it just me or the washes 5ep sell, especially on the site Babar posted, are really bad? IMO, they're fake looking and obtrusive. Also, I just got my 5ep Low Down Bootcuts. I just wish the coin pocket was smaller, but other than that, they fit great and have nice details. Really cool selvage outseam, too.

    It's www.denimafia.com The site isn't really helpful in showing you their collection. It's pretty disorganized.
