    I'm looking for a pair of dressier jeans to wear with dress shirts, blazers, and maybe chelsea boots. No holes, minimum fade, dark colored, straight leg. Any ideas?

    Do you want one wash? or some pre distressed ones. One wash can look pretty good with dressier clothes. And if that's the case, you've got lots and lots of choices, look in the Japanese denim thread for some high quality stuff. APC is a good cheap (relative term) alternative. Nudies back pockets might be too loud for a dressier outfit.

    Rag & Bone makes some nice stuff that would fit, IMO.

    Yeah, pretty understated backpockets also.

    I'd go with the Rag & Bone as long as you aren't too tall. I think the RB11 has trouser style pockets that raise makes the denim a little less casual. Rogan might also be another one to look at.

    Not at all, about 5'11 and 160-165lbs.

    Another vote for Rag & Bone.

    Yet another RB vote. Depending on your build and how you like the jeans to fit, I'd try the RB6. If you do like some stacking on boots, I'd check out the new ones they'll be bringing out, because they will make the smaller waist sizes available in 34in lengths. I also have a pair of Nudie Regular Ralf Dry Selvage that I'm going to wash very quickly, so they keep the plain, dark blue color. I happen to also like their stitching, but have heard of some people removing it if they don't.

    Rag & Bone works well. The resin they put on their jeans keeps makes fading rather difficult, which can be a bad thing. Also their slash front pockets and soft left hand twill fabric make them feel like trousers.

    Rag and Bone works best, although some dark Cloak jeans may also work... APC, Crate, and Helmut Lang, although both having minimal details, are cut little too "hip" to be dressy. Forget about the repros, LVCs, etc...

    I wear my jeans in a regular fit with slight bootcut, which rb's would be to my liking? The RRDS has a slightly slimmer bootcut than I like so something just a tad wider would be nice. Thanks fellas.

    I don't know if RB even makes any bootcuts. I think they do, but it probably won;t be an easy to find model. I think I've only ever seen them on a Japanese website

    Um, none of the RBs are going to be to your liking, unfortunately. They are all true straightlegs, to the best of my knowledge. The Crate James has a slight bootleg, but it is also more of a straightleg than anything else. Why don't you give the RB1 a try? You might like it the straightleg.

    If the RRs aren't enough of a bootcut for you, but you are otherwise happy with Nudies, why not try the Bootcut Ola?

    Bootcut Olas, despite their name, are actually more of a straightleg than the RRs. The Glenn Flare is the only Nudie model (it's been discontinued though) with a larger hem to knee ratio than the RR.
