    The ones I saw in store were bright white, possibly the lighting at your store was bad? Unfortunately they didn't have my size so I wasn't able to try any on

    yeah, you could be right. I kinda prefer just a little off white, makes them a little more versatile and not as standout-ish. I guess I could run them through the wash with my dirty laundry. also, they fit true to size i thought.

    Uniqlo sells white jeans in season. I bought a pair for $15 on sale last fall.

    Just picked up RL Black Label jeans on sale from blue bee. They have a size 32 left, but from my limited research, these run a tad large.

    Too bad I didn't look at their site a little bit ago, those Earnest Sewns would have been perfect. As for a 32 in RL Black Label, any idea how they compare in the waist to Rag & Bone (current run, less vanity sized), or to their own slacks (in which I am a 32)?

    yes, I actually just recently picked up the same pair and they are very nice, the only thing that pisses me off about the NDG classics is how high the back rise is! but I suppose they are meant to be worn sagged a bit, atleast that is how they look best imo.

    I hate the size of the back pockets

    The back pcket size actually isnt as noticeable the larger up in size you go... I am guessing you are around a 31 waist from the pics? (prob. wrong) but I noticed the pockets looked really big in the context pics as well. I take a 34 and they dont look that huge on me... I think they fit you well though, especially with a bit of hemming.

    Well, I think I found just the right pair for what I need (pretending to be Eurotrash/Caribbean pimp wannabe a week at a time):
    http://www.agjeans.com/The_Teddyboy_...24/p/1339.html

    However I just don't see paying retail on those (better than the Helmut Lang jeans on Revolve for more even with discount, but still overpriced). Anyone seen these on sale anywhere, or know of a coupon for agjeans.com? Long shot on this board, I know, but figured I'd better ask.

    I tried on the Gap selvedge white's yesterday and liked them. Unfortunately they only had 31 - 32, which were a good fit, but after a wash or two would shrink up and be too short.
    Have to say I liked them.

    I would feel like a tool in white denim, or like I was about to paint someone's house for them.

    Maybe this is obvious, but I'm not enough of a denim nerd to know the answer: what happens if you buy a pair of white jawnz and then overdye (or I guess just dye) them indigo? Sick fadez? Blue stains everywhere? A pair that just looks off?

    I went with the Gap jeans. Very nice fit - not too tight & low-rise. Not unlike a 514 fit. I found that a 31 fir me best, though I wear a 30 in most Levis. The colour is just a little off-white: not cream but also not Miami Vice Pimp Daddy refrigerator white either.

    I bet these will be on deep discount soon enough, but I needed mine now - so I can play James Bond while in Barbados! [​IMG]
