    WOW, Nathan at Rag and Bone is awesome! Though someone else responded to my initial concern, he emailed me as well. He told me that, despite the price difference, he would exchange my RB1s for a pair of RB6, and appologized for the problems with mine! That is amazing. LA Guy, you were the one who originally suggested the 6, I have not actually tried these, but you say that they are a similar cut to the 1, just less baggy? Thanks.

    How true to size does the RB6 really run? There is a pair on ebay that are listed as 34X34, but the measurements seem to come to 36X34. I'd take them if I knew they were a true 34, but 36 is just too big.

    They fit pretty true. The RB11 fits large in the waist. A 32 RB6 fit perfectly, and I couldn't close a 30, but in the 11, the 30 was a good waist size (though the leg was too tight for my liking). I would guess that since some of the 6s are lighter weight denim that they may have stretched, or else the guy didn't measure right.

    Baron, the current season of R&Bs seem to come very true to size. They switched factories for denim at some point recently (from Kentucky to North Carolina). I have heard of the older R&Bs running a bit bigger than tagged size - this may be related to the change in the factory.

    For reference, I wear a 28 in APC New Standards, a 29 in Nudie, a 29 in 5EP, and a 30 in S/S06 Rag&Bone - all of which fit me exactly the same (same amount of comfort, basically) on the waist.

    Hey Baron,

    I'm actually selling those RB6's. I had a pair from last season in 32X32 and the top button fell off. Apparently, Rag & Bone had a problem on their production line last year, and this was a fairly common issue.

    In any event, I contacted them about the problem, and Nathan Bogle (sp?) sent me a new pair a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, he sent me 34X34 instead of my normal size 32X32. Rather than trying to return the jeans through Nathan, I just bought another pair in my size on a recent trip to San Francisco and decided to try to break even by selling these on ebay.

    I have had 3 pairs of RB6's in size 32X32 (from both last season and this season), and I assure you that they are all cut generously in the waist. They fit true in the hips and thighs but generous in the waist. For your reference, I am a true 32 ... My 45rpm Sorahiko's, Rogan Original's & Nudie RRDS are all 32's.

    As much as I'd like to sell you the jeans, my measurements are accurate, so I would suggest not bidding if you are looking for a snug fit in the waist. Sorry.

    My RB6a (32x32) measured almost exactly 16" across the top

    I found my RB6's and RB8's to be about a half-size large in the waist.

    Thanks deadstock! I'm just about fed up with the whole online denim buying experience. There's really no telling how jeans will fit from brand to brand. You're getting some action on that auction as it is, so you should do alright. Thanks for the honest appraisal though.

    Baron, No problem at all :), happy to help. It's difficult ordering online, you can end up spending so much $$ on ill-fitting jeans that you could have flown somewhere and purchased a pair that fits in person ;-).

    PG2G, Strange, maybe the selvage RB6's run bigger?

    FYI, quoting tiger02 from the "Post Pictures of Your Denim" thread:

    "RB1s...umm, 10 minutes of wear, no washes. These just showed up yesterday (in Kuwait) from Active Endeavors. I'm throwing myself at the denim experts for fit critique. I'm pretty happy with them so far. Sized down; these are 32s and I measure between 33 and 34. The waist is a perfect fit, they sit right above my hipbone. I'm expecting the hips to stretch just a little; fit through the thighs is great."

    ^^^ 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.
