    Only thing I hadn't anticipated was how the trouser pockets on mine affect the wear patterns.

    Would love to see how yours are turning out. I'm considering another Rag & Bone purchase, if they make something slightly thinner than the 6b (I think the 11s is).

    Those Canes are looking great.

    How do you find they fit in the waist? Pretty true to size, or should I size down? I'm thinking of getting a pair of 1947 Hawaiis.

    Rag & Bone RB6b, hey are a one wash as far as I know. Bought back in January, no signifigant wear. These jeans are so thin that I'm not expecting anything drastic, should turn out great though.

    The denim on those Rag & Bones is incredibly beautiful. With most raw/one-wash jeans I look forward to seeing what they look like after they've been broken in for a while, but Rag & Bones always make me want to keep them in the original state. Nice jeans!

    They fit true to size in the waist after a nice warm wash. They were rather baggy after a cold soak, but after a warm wash under delicate they shrank down to tag size. I am a true 31 and these fit slightly tight around the waist after the wash and then snug after a couple of weeks due to stretching.

    Sure thing, when I can get my hands on a digicam. And I dunno if their jeans come any lighter than 11.5oz, but doesn't hurt to e-mail them.

    I meant cut thinner, not the weight of the denim [​IMG]

    no not much at all. The waist stretched probably about .5 inches. But stretched back within a day.

    After soak it shrank about .5" in length, the leg opening actually became smaller as well (which I like coz I thought they were a tad too flared to begin with).

    I don't like posting pictures of brand new jeans, but I know there are a lot of questions and curiosity about Rag&Bone jeans, so I'll post pictures of mine to give you guys a better idea than what you already may know. These are RB11 selvage jeans, with the lighterweight denim (Feels around 10.5-11oz). Fit from the front (Size 30x32, my Nudie size is 29x32, Nudies are significantly longer on 32 inseam). Also, my legs are pretty skinny, and I (and my girlfriend) consider the fit on these jeans to be pretty much perfect. Sorry guys, no aggro stance on this one [​IMG] Boots are Jil Sander. I apologize for the bad lighting, Im still learning how to use my camera. http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/3656/rb11fit5sh.jpg This next picture is a close-up of the braces button. The hardware on these jeans is fucking unbeatable. http://img47.imageshack.us/img47/747...sbutton6bg.jpg This next one shows a couple of things: the button-fly which has only 3 buttons on it, slanted buttonholes, a brushed cotton waistband interface, hidden rivets, and the "Handmade in North Carolina" tag, although its barely visible here. Also, the leaf logo on the back of each rivet is really fancy. The white hanging ribbon is not visible, but its in there. http://img47.imageshack.us/img47/1958/rb11inside5wu.jpg

    What function do the slanted buttonholes on the fly serve?

    BrainSD, have you tried on the RB6 before? Wondering how the 11 compares, since they will probably replace my RB6.

    Whatever the function is, Kicking Mule has the same feature, and similar great detailing to Rag & Bones. Denim quality is also good. I tried a pair on at Denim Bar the other day and thought they were outstanding, except for the fac that they were too short (damn you Kicking Mule).

    i've always understood the slanted buttonholes on the fly to be an engineering feature to make it harder for the fly to become accidently unbuttoned

    the best i can recall is reading something about this and that by putting the buttonhole on a slant, the stress across the fly region is spread out differently against the fabric on the diagonal of the buttonhole as opposed to a horizontal one, whereby the stress is such that it will release the button through the hole easier than on a slant

    then again, it may simply be easier to button the damn thing through a slanted one than a horizontal one

    but your guess is as good as mine

    They're cut slimmer and the rise is lower.. other than that I cant think of any differences aside from the details.
