    in my last correspondence from R&B (Nathan Bogle) he said that the RB1 inseams all runs short, because with the longer rise they're intended to be lower.

    BUT he said they are adding 32x34 for teh fall line

    Just ordered the RB1 light blue that's caught my eye for weeks (with some discount, thx stylefourm). Can't wait for it to get to me and hope that i don'thave to deal with the inseam problem..i'm 5'11 and a true 32/32...for the record.

    Would anyone make a quick comparison btwn the RB6 and earnest sewn Hutch Maz Dark(i.e fabric..cut..etc)? I own and love the latter and wonder if i should go for another pair that looks just like it...else Rogan Stasis and 45RPM Umii are the next and last (hopefully) two down on my list...

    just received my "RB1" light blue today from active endeavors. It's actually RB1890B, hence the different outlook of the jean itself. Feel free to ask any questions.

    Here's a quick look overall -

    Fit - It's on the slim side, a bit slimmer than an Earnest Sewn Hutch, but not Filson (now Fulton) slim.
    Fabric - very light and thin. Good for summer use. Then again it can also be bad news for those who wants to wear it hard.

    width/length - i'm a true 32/32, and it fits me just fine..my pair seems to be a 32.5 in waist. Inseam is also 32..i would love to have it right around 33 but hay an inch won't make a huge difference.

    Detail - it's not a flashy design yet there are interesting stuff to be found. the side-seam is doube-stitched..there's actually rectangular stitch just a few inches underneath the button-fly..given the thiness of fabric..i am happy to see that R&B has decided to reinforced that part of the jean so that...well it's less likely to be ripped and exposed our family jewels..

    Deep slash front pocket..another good detail that worth mentioning.

    now, here is my only concern and its not even anything major..there's this opening that sits right behind the front pocket, with a button there to seal things up. I can only assume the openings are there for ventilation purposes....i know guys occasionally go commando with their jeans..with those openings..well.. u know..

    Overall i'm very happy with this purchase. My first pair of R&B and it makes me wanna go for another pair..the pics at active endeavors is fairly representative to the actual thing..and the buttom looks even better in person..

    hope this helps.

    Glad that you like them. Im not sure about that little ventilation thing, but I would probably keep it buttoned up. And I never go commando. [​IMG]

    What're deep slash pockets? Terminology always escapes me.

    Is the denim similarly lightweight across all their models?

    Commando in jeans always escaped me. It always feels a bit...uncomfortable. [​IMG]

    slash pocket is basically the pants pocket in jeans..with a staight rather than round opening..i personally perfer slash pocket since i can actually put little things in there.. old PD&C, earnest sewn and Rogan

    I guess my pair is probably the thinnest of all 'cos i can imagine it gets any thinner..

    Going commando in jeans...my estimate is that it's probably harder to go commando with a pair of raw, unwashed pair for the obvious reasons...i guess some day i'd get to testify for that myself but not now.. ask the mods..they should know how that feels[​IMG]

    Is the Rogan Original available in a 28/29 waist?
    if you have a 29 waist you would probable wear a 31 in rogan--which they do make

    one of my favorite SUMMER jeans is by 120 lino (the denim contains 36% linen)--so comfortable.

    He does, but gets inundated with emails. There is a thread on this forum dedicated to just this subject. I would look through it, and if you don't find the answer there, post your question, before asking Mauro for a million measurements. He just got some Rescues in, and I've tried on several sizes of Rescues from the newest batch. If you are a smaller size (APC 28-30), I can probably help you.

    i'm a 31 in nudie rrds, and could even go a LITTLE tighter. what size for the rescues would you say fit the same in the thighs/waist? the waist probably won't be too much of a problem though, as they will stretch out alot

    Based on this information, I would say that you are probably a 33 true waist. With that in mind, I would probably go with a 30 in the APC Rescues is you want a looser fit, and a 29 if you want a tighter fit. Note that the rise in the Rescue is about an inch longer than the rise in the RRDS.
