    Ha, it only makes senses that cotton is cotton and it'll stretch. My pair originally measure 33" tagged 32 and they're out to 34" now, a bit too loose for me to wear them now.

    People think Cone is Cone is Cone when really they do so much product that you can't corner them. I think it's because people are used to seeing their standard blueberry Levi's stuff and think that that's all they're capable of.

    Edit: Adam, I did.

    Holy shit I think I finally made sense on the internet.[​IMG]

    Just talked with Mauro for a while on the phone and I half expected him to have a thick accent based on how he types. Was I wrong... [​IMG]

    ^^LOL. I just don't express myself well and my spelling and typing is shit.

    Zissou was on the phone with me because we a doing a "versus" together it was his contest idea that has got everyone all kinds of nuts so he gets first dibbs. We are doing a shirt and it will be BAD ASS and it will be LIMITED edition.

    The jean contest will be really cool because the winner can go to NYC to source everything.

    This is gonna be fantastic! I've got a specific idea in mind, but need to think out all of the details. You all know how I like workwear, but I'm hoping this will be something anyone will want to wear...

    Thanks for setting this up, Mauro!

    Here's what's left online:

    34 - 4
    36 - 1

    I'm going to hold off posting what the in-store stock is for now. We are in the process of figuring out exactly what was sold and I'd feel bad promising an in-store pair to someone if they were all spoken for. Stay tuned though! Jeans should be arriving soon!

    yes, Zissou idea is very good and it will be a blast.
    Payman is putting up up sizes now.

    We have pulled some sizes as reserves just so we don't over sell. So if you want a size and you see its sold out you might have a shot at snaggin a pair.

    It depends. Rag & Bone likes to use different types of denim that vary from model and season. There have been streaky rb15s and flat rb15s. Your best bet is to ask for pictures before you buy.

    Possible workwear themed collabs sounds intriguing, I am very excited to see what comes out of this. Good stuff on more collabs!

    Speaking of streaky, are the CvsF as streaky in real life as they look in the photos? If they are I'll be a very very happy man.

    Also what's the weight of the denim?

    they're 13.25 ounces I believe. It's somewhere in this thread. It's 13.xx for sure though.

    ^^ you are correct 13.25
    the jean is kinda streaky but it won't last. The streaky-ness and sheen is a result of the overdye. It will fade and the sheen will fade. you will like it it's very multi-directional.
