    I am interested in them but I really want more images of fit over time and fading.
    I'm sure it won't be too much different than ande whall cone denim, lvc, or roy's seeing they all use cone. I remember someone saying they use some black seed stuff and maybe some special stuff from cone, but my thought for the most part was they used standard cone. http://denimdebate.com/tag/raleigh-denim/

    MORTAR started carrying these a few weeks ago. They aren't up on the website, but they have a decent selection in store.

    I stopped by to check them out and they look really nice. The details are fantastic. They do a wide variety of washes - some are good, some not. Of course, raw is an option as well. Stitching is super nice. Owners sign the inside of each pair, which is pretty cool IMO.

    The coolest thing is the numbering of each pair of jeans on the back. They do a ton of limited runs, and to have "39/50" or something like that is pretty cool.

    FYI - they produce different lines for different store sizes. The offerings at Barney's are very different from the offerings at small boutiques.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to swing over there and check them out. After reading about these jeans I'm intrigued. Although I've got to admit I'm a fan of plain old 501s, to me they're simply hard to beat.

    Yeah, they have a nice selection. About six different washes from what I recall.

    Every time I go in there I have to remind myself that I don't need another pair of jeans...

    Beautiful collaboration jeans with much-respected Amsterdam-based shop Tenue de NÃ[​IMG]mes. Selvedge indigo canvas... whoa. Someone on sufu copped a pair of their indigo canvas and it looked like pretty amazing fabric, cut, and construction. http://www.tenuedenimes.com/shop/pro...ollaboration/#

    some Cone denim close ups on my Raleighs--around 3 months.

    btw I went by the Raleigh Denim HQ recently and they said they were now making all their jeans with a new collaboration with Cone--a denim that's a little chattier and with a little more horizontal white lines than the previous denim--it was White Oak before, I think.

    The guy explained their Nash v. Lincoln, etc; straight v. slim identifications: Nash and Lincoln are wash types: Nash is raw, Lincoln is washed (not sure if it's a consistent wash) It got complicated, but I found out they do not make a slim leg raw jean, which is too bad. However, it was explained to me the previous time I went in there (back when they were south of downtown Raleigh, not in their new location) that the slims and straights are identical except for an inch of tapering from the knee down.

    I also told them I was a 28 and they said "we don't even make that size sometimes!" So small dudes, good luck with these.

    and some of their girls ones are great looking--bright aqua seafoam blue jeans and inside-out-looking jeans.

    Bought my first pair a couple of months ago and absolutely love them. I'm biased being from Raleigh and everything, but after trying on a bunch of the standard names, the RD's just fit the best and the customer service is top notch. If you are in the area, I highly recommend going to their new space at Designbox.

    After wearing these jeans for two months, I gladly admit to being a convert. Excellent construction, great fit, and I like the way they've begun breaking in.

    Side note - if you're in Houston, Mortar is an amazing shop. Outstanding service and a solid selection of goods.

    Do these jeans shrink after a soak or a wash?

    i saw no noticeable change when i did my soak @ 5 months. the waist did not shrink back to original prewear size; if it shrank at all, it stretched back out really quickly. I don't know if the length changed at all; I've just been rocking big stacks on these since day 1.

    I think i'm gonna do another soak in a few days now that i'm at 7 months.

    I just bought a pair of the herringbone denims from the barneys sale. Tried on in store but ordered online as they only had 33 in store and i guessed a 34 would fit better. Great, different denim. Will report thoughts once i get em.
