    The SS has a pretty unique cut that no other jean has, to my knowledge. They are the perfect fit, in my opinion if you have a relatively lean body type. The RB15 are really cool too. Try them both on and see which one fits you best!

    Go with the Nudies (or if you want R&B, go with RB6).

    I'd say go with the R&B. The Nudie fit is good, for sure, but R&B is in a different league in every other regard. Plus the R&B fit *is* really good. I just can't say if I like it more than the Svens.

    I'd say that it depends on what you are looking for. Both jeans fit well, the RB15 considerably slimmer than the Svens, and with a slight taper compared to the true Sven straightleg. If you are looking for a beat around jean that has a good fit and will give you a good fade, go with the Sven. If you are looking for a more versatile jean (Nudies, with their orange stitching and back pocket design, are, imo, strictly casual) and want to keep the darker cast for a longer time, go for the RB15. I would say that the RB6 is actually more versatile than the RB15. Best thing is just to go to a store and try them on. Where are you located? Both brands have pretty wide distribution.

    I have both of these jeans and love them both. I think the Sven is a slightly better fit for me, but the R&B is a bit higher quality, which is not to say that the Nudie isn't a very high quality jean. For $130 or whatever some ppl were paying for the RB15s, they're a no brainer, as the Sven can't be gotten too cheaply for the most part, $160 or so is about the lowest.

    Um, Ian, Scott Kuhlmann, and Blackbird, to begin with? Is there a Barneys? Dude, just look up shops on citysearch or in your local yellow book.

    Those Rb15s sound killer. Do they come in a 30" inseam?
