    Few pics I found in my folder, about 3 months of wear. Not serious wear though, about two to three days a week. These go for about $80 bucks, and are on sale for $60.


    Decent jeans.

    Anyone have any experience with the Albam selvage jeans? Would you recommend sizing down?

    I know mentioned above, but what about Uniqlo, The Gap, and The Unbranded Brand (Urban?)
    Uniqlo?
    Was kinda thinking no chain-store/mall brands. Most are common knowledge. Looking here for more unique, under-the-radar stuff.

    Will add. Thx. Do you have a link for Rogue so I can put in before morning coffee?

    LVCs are available for under $200. My favorite of the jeans that retail under $200 (although with shipping, they press the limit. They're $170 from cultizm before shipping). RRL is I think $180. Engineered Garments is $170 or so. R&B can be easily had on sale, although I haven't liked the direction their jeans have taken the last few years.

    Ohh damn sorry Myygnard

    This is a very good topic btw, you listed pretty much every 200 and under denim I can think of.

    Awesome call(s) on the LVC/Cultizm site. Added. Can you link me on the others? Never looked at RRL or EG. Agreed on R&B

    When I tried the slim leg on i went tts and they fit well, my mate who's had his pair for a while went this route too but feels he could have sized down one easily. They aren't super slim.

    SF Common knowledge != general common knowledge. I was just thinking this might be a nice, helpful reference to n00bs. But it's your thread, so you call the shots.

    Great thread, but I don't know of any Rag and Bone models that retail under $200 or even $250.
    Yeah, all R&B jeans retail at 250-275 in my experience. LVC shouldn't fall into this category either, they're pretty expensive Left Field: 200 retail Natural indigo Hidden rivets Slubbiness
    Do they still do the made in China KMW?
    They haven't made KMWs in China for years.
    Really? Got mine for like 175
    Ebay/market/sale prices shouldn't count or you could throw in any brand since there will always be those popping up on B&S for <$200.
    -Rogue Territory -Gilded Age for Barney's Co-Op
    Aren't all Gilded Age jeans sub-$200? If you want to get into brands that can easily be found on sale: W+H NdG Helmut Lang all come to mind

    Liking what I saw in the Rogues Territory thread. The hardware especially caught my eye. Sounds like the January releases will be pretty affordable, too ($160-$180, IIRC).
