    What is Rag & Bone's approach to denim in general? What are the different models of Rag & Bone jeans? Besides Denim Bar, is there anywhere else to get them?

    Their jeans are supposed to be THE dress jeans. The bigger the number in the model the slimmer/tighter the jeans are. Revolve and tobi also carries them.
    The number system is just a rule of thumb with several exceptions.

    Do they have any plans to go back to using selvage? Their selvage was so light that it'd make a great summer jean.

    Yes I only bought selvage this time around it's all retailing for 275.00
    They offer a varitey but thats what I choose I think it's more special.

    The denim is very nice. It comes from the same mill as RRL and Engineered Garments denim, Cone Mills in North Carolina.

    Interesting story about R&B and Cone Mills.

    Also Barney's has a few models.


    Cool article, thanks for posting

    To Bad Taylor togs went out of business due to rising health care costs. It's a real shame.

    Glad you got the selvage. Yeah, I guess the factory closed down last year but r&b bought all the equipment, right?

    Is it the same selvage that was available last season, or is it a heavier variety for Fall? Is it in-store yet, or will it be a few more weeks? Now that RB is finally making their jeans long enough for me, I can't wait to get a second pair.

    Another thin I noticed about Rag & Bone jeans is that some of them have strange back pockets that may not be flattering on all people. I happen to like the "normal" looking ones though.

    Just bought a pair of RB11 on a whim... hoping they fit okay, particularly from the knee down (would prefer not to have to taper) and in the seat. The limited info I have on the 11 is that the seat can be a bit baggy on some?

    (Turns out there was an old catch-all thread about R&B: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=12412) So what models of R&B are currently in production? RB11 and RB15 get mentioned most frequently. Apparently an RB15 is about as skinny as APC NSs? RB16 and RB17 are currently on Denim Bar's site; both are described as "tapered" and "slim".
