    Questions on two brands of jeans:

    Rag and Bone
    - Do these jeans come in 29/32? Online and in stores, I have only found the jeans in 28 and 30 waist sizes.

    Joe's Jeans
    - What are people's thoughts on the Rebel jeans? I just purchased a pair and I find them to be very comfortable after wearing Earnest Sewn Hutch's for a while.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure Rag&Bone does only even waist sizes

    Not sure myself. I hate Rag&Bones sizing system. I'm a 29/32 as well and Rag&Bone's 30/32 is the closest I could get.

    Money. It costs more to make a full size range, obviously.

    Dude, I have no idea what that means, but the Rogan Original cut, the Rag & Bone RB1, and the Nudie RRDS are hardly "tight ass jeans" unless you buy them 3 sizes too small (something I find particularly stupid.) And the NS can be worn loose, regular, or slim, depending on preference. Actually, hardly any one of the the jeans on my least can be considered "tight ass". Unless you have a huge ass. In which case, I can't help you.

    is anyone able to give some sort of indication as to how much baggier the rag and bone RB1 is than the gstar ruger straight?

    much appreciated. [​IMG]

    It's a bit baggier. Last I recalled, Rugar was on the slimmer side of things. Say 4 out of 10? RB1s are probably a 7 or 8.

    Brian I was looking at the RB1s, but I usually wear a 34 inseam but can handle a 33, do you know if the 32 a but longwith Rang and Bone or should I look elsewhere?

    thanks brian.

    what jeans would you compare the RB1's to in terms of bagginess?

    also, how much baggier, if at all, is the RB6 as compared to the gstar ruger straight, or say, the nudie slim jim?


    unfortunately the nearest stockist is a 5 hour flight from me, so web purchases are the go!

    4. Eternal 811, Studio D'Artisan SD-103 - Slim straight-leg Levis-based jeans from Japan. In many respects these two jeans are very similar, so they're occupying the same spot on my list. The main difference between the two is that while the Studio D'Artisans have a little more of a true blue fade and are rope-dyed, the Eternals have a slightly green-casted fade, which has made them famous. The fit is slim, though not painted-on-tight, and the rise is middle-low. As expected from a Japanese company, the denim is superlative. They're very starchy and stiff, and thus will fade quicker than the more Americanized jeans listed above. Depending on how you get them, they can vary in price, but the mean is about $250.


    Good info Brian, do you know which one from Samurai is the equivelant cut of those two? Interested in one of those

    Don't even think about it, heh. I've taken that road and it didn't quite work out for me.

    I really don't know much about Samurai jeans I'm afraid. If you browse through the Samurai models, some web pages (I think C.Point) have a 1-10 scale on how tight/loose the jeans are, or maybe 1-5.

    the SD-103 and Eternal 811 are rated at 2/5 typically.

    RB1's are pretty roomy in the butt and thighs, but slims down somewhat in the leg. Think the old Diesel Kratt jeans.

    The RB6 is considerably slimmer, but not as slim as the GStar Ruger straight. It is actually difficult to compare the two because the cuts are quite different. The Ruger has a considerably lower rise and thus a straighter cut than the RB6.

    thanks brian.
