I want to buy a new pair of jeans. I currently own A.P.C. New Standards, Nudie Slim Jim, and Nudie Average Joe. I wanted something roomier, or more relaxed, than the jeans I currently own. I can't decide between:
1. Imperial Denim King Raw
2. Nudie Regular Ralf Dry Selvage
3. Kicking Mule Workshop 2010 Japanese Edition

What are your thoughts as to the price/quality ratio (they are all 275 approximately) of each of this jeans? Which one would you choose and why?

Many thanks

i only have experience with japanese denim and the nudies--

for that price u can get a great japanese product and it seems that its reputation for quality is better, so why go with subpar items?

I love the regular ralf, though, for nudie I think you should pick up the non-selfvage to save some dough, and then buy yourself the KMW.

Just so you know there is no "Japanese Edition" all KMWs are made in Japan now

echo what others have said...the nudies are the least of the 3 that you mentioned by most qualitative measures. all 3 jeans listed are roomier than your current pairs so give some more information on what you're looking for in terms of what you're looking for in terms of fit, fading, etc. and people might be able to help you out more.

also +1 for ande whall being thrown in the mix.
