    Tried using the search function, but the brand name itself yields no results.

    Can anyone tell me about this brand of jeans? Advertised as raw selvedge.

    Quality? Source of denim? Weight of fabric?

    Available here:

    Thanks!

    It's an Australian brand. The denim weight is about 12-13 ounces, at least the pairs I have seen. The construction is decent, but not worth $200+ in my opinion, especially with brands like 5EP and Rag&Bone, and even Nudie, at the same pricepoints. The back and back pocket detailing is interesting, cosmetically not unlike the detailing on Dior Homme jeans.

    Thanks for the info. The site I linked above is running a 55% of sale, so I was thinking of trying them. Would definitely not pay list, but I think I might give them a try at a little over 100.

    The denim quality's not great, but the fades are sometimes pretty nice. Oftentimes, the blues are just TOO blue though. The fits in the ladies are very nice, but the guys are nothing special.

    I tried on a few pairs at about $60 and couldn't convince myself to pull the trigger...

    I actually picked up a pair of grey Nobody's - fits well and quite light. Perhaps I overpayed for them when I bought them in HK but then again the color was nice.

    The back pockets are quite simple and unobtrusive - another reason why I bought them.
