    ^^^ Just to clarify, I haven't measured the waist on those RB1s.

    Does anyone know what weight denim they're using for the spring/summer RB6s? They felt pretty light to me, but I can't tell.

    Is there only one weight? I thought that the selvage stuff was heavier, is that not for this season? I am just trying to figure out what exactly Nathan is going to send me, because he just said that he'd swap out my RB1s that had the belt loops untacked for some 6s. Either selvage or 11oz, RBs are such amazing looking jeans, not sure how I'll ever go back to something else.

    Yeah, I was pretty sure the selvage version of the rb6 jeans were heavier than that too. What's your source, LA Guy?

    Anyone know if longer inseams will be offered in the future, such as a 28x32? The rb11s are so tempting, but for the price they command I need them to be perfect in all aspects.

    Um, personally inspecting them. There are (or were) heavier selvedge rb6's as well (13.75 ounces, IIRC). Rag & Bone have the most confusing system there is out there. Probably internally consistent, but to a consumer working without an order sheet, really confusing.

    anyone know how RB14 runs compared to RB6 or RB8? i heard that R&B denims get tighter as the model number goes up. never had a chance to try them on here, stocks around Tokyo(where i am) are pretty limited.

    looking at the waist measurements here, it looks tight. W30 is comparable to W32 in RB6.

    The cuts getting slimmer as the number goes up is only coincidence. It's not meant to be that way and I think the 14s deviate a bit from this. As of now, the 11s are still the slimmest AFAIK.

    Hey guys, I finally got my Rb1's back from my friend and he did a great job distressing them for me. He stone washed them, added some wiskers, and put some grindings on it too.

    I can post pictures later if people want to see them.

    Well, I just got mine from Nathan today, and they are awesome. I haven't put them on yet, as I just opened them, but they are so cool looking. They are the regular RB6, with that deep indigo color, a little bit of shine, and some very subtle streaks. I am going to see how these wear over the next month or so, but if they wear as well as I think they will, then I will go back for the selvage version as well, as those also look really cool.

    How do you go about getting a pair from "Nathan"? I presume you are referring to Nathan Bogle. I didn't know rag&bone does its own online shop?

    If you read back a bit, you will see what I am talking about. Long story short: I got a pair of RB1s from AE. The belt loops weren't finished right (not tacked on three of them) and they didn't fit. I emailed RB, to let them know about the problem, but also telling them I'd likely just return the jeans to AE, as the style didn't fit right. They told me to send them to RB, and that, despite the price difference, they would send me a pair of RB6 as a replacement. So, while they don't have online shopping from their site directly, they are very good about stepping in when there is any problem with one of their products and doing whatever they can for the customer. That said, I have no idea whether or not you could order a pair right from them if you couldn't otherwise find what you wanted.

    DGP, it takes a *long* time to get wear on Rag&Bones. Just letting you know so you don't get discouraged.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear what I meant. I meant to see just how the denim holds up and, more importantly, how they stretch and shrink over a little bit of time and a couple of washes. I actually wash my jeans pretty soon, as I want to keep that dark, un-distressed look for one or two pairs of dressier jeans. I simply meant that I didn't want to just rush and buy a couple pairs before I'd really gotten a feel for how it was to wear them.
