    I give up on my RRDS. Given the dress code at work, I don't wear them often enough for them to develop any wear. It's been close to a year and they are like new. I'm relegating them as my dark jeans, rather than project jeans, and I'm fine with that.

    Now, I'm looking for a pair of medium blue lightly distressed jeans. I love all things esoteric, so help me give coldrice some more business and hit me with something that's not readily available in the US.

    Regarding fit, I like the leg of the RR's, but the thighs and seat are a little tight. I don't want butt-hugging jeans (please forgive my terminology). I want a relaxed fitting jean, or at the very least, nothing tighter than the Nudies. Straightleg only please.

    I liked these prps jeans but probably want a little more of a saggy butt and thigh. What say you? I'd like to be in the $300 range.

    I'd look at the Natural Indigo Pure Blue Japan - I think it's AI-001? That's esoteric, regular cut, exquisite quality, etc. May by a little pricier than $300 - not sure exactly. I'm pretty sure you can get them in a distressed wash.

    distressed Denime looks good.
    I agree about the non-distressed AI-001.

    Gilded Age may suit your needs. Look 'em up.

    Very good distressing.

    I would imagine in the $300 range in Japan (about $400+ in the States).

    Is Denime in my price range? Do you recommend any models in particular for my specifications? Finally, are there any better pictures than this:

    anyone else? I think i'm looking for a 4.5 out of five or so on the baggy scale. The only thing I found in that range was 19oz denim (too heavy for me).
