    Just wanted to see if I could get some current info on this one. Does anyone know where I can get the Rag and Bone RB1's. I basically wore mine to death and it's time for a new pair. I love the fit on these but I am having a lot of trouble finding them. I am not too sure of the similarities with the RB6 so I am avoiding ordering those at active endeavors. I like the RB1 because of the relaxed fit (damn my wide legs).

    i carry the rb6 and rb15

    the rb6 is a loose straight leg, the rb15 is just straight

    the rb1 is a relaxed straight if i remember right, so rb6 would be pretty close

    Thanks for the help. Yeah, it appears that the RB6 and RB1 are pretty close. Hopefully the fit will be the same.

    The original RB6 was slimmer than the RB1, however the RB6s that have come out since the 1's discontinuation have been looser, making them more like the old RB1.

    I am wondering how the sizing is for the waist of the RB6. I have the 5EP LDB in a 34/32 and the waist is perfect. Would the sizing on the RB6 be similar and how would the thighs on the RB6 compare to the LDB. Hopefully a little roomier.

    This might be slightly off topic, but are Rag & Bone jeans sanfordized or preshrunk?

    Which wash are your 5EPs? I think RB stretch very little, because of that cotton waistband. So, if they have stretched a shitload to become perfect, then I'd up from them. However, in general, I'd go with the same size, maybe even one down, as the RB tend to run a bit big.

    My LDB are the dark worn but they fit perfectly right away. I think I might try the RB6 so hopefully they aren't too slim.

    i've been seeing varying information on the rb15s...is it just straight or is it pretty slim? i used to think it was slim until i saw some pics online...

    i own rb16s, which are basically skinny...and i thought the higher the number, the skinnier the jean, so i figured the rb15s were pretty close to the rb16s?

    If you like the LDB, I'm sure you won't find the RB6 too slim. I actually think that they are a bit wider than the LDB.

    No problem. I would say that through the leg the RB6 of late compares to the 5EP SDZ, but with a slightly shorter rise and no tapering at the bottom (definitely a more modern cut, in fact one of the most modern/flattering loose cuts around).

    Brigade (a new affiliate) has them. I'm not sure what their return policy is, but as long as it's good, you should be fine. In NY, you could always try Barneys. There's also a store whose name can never be mentioned here again (srovaedne evica, read backwards) which sells them and I know has free shipping. However, they are pretty bad with regards to time to credit returns back.
