    I saw the Red Ear made in china jeans, and did not like them one bit. $360 for a pair of jeans manufactured in china? I could pay $250 and get a pair manufactured in Japan.

    well, the only thing that compares to the paul smith jeans style-wise that are coming out of japan are the john bull and maybe a couple of other brands.

    rnrswitch, you seem to favor the repro brands (like i do) so i wouldn't think that those would fit your style.

    so how do red ear compare to sugarcane? 45rpm?

    i don't think they compare easily. sugarcane and 45 rpm, i would say, are repro type brands. the red ear has a lot more deliberate styling.

    I agree, their is some great denim coming out of China.

    But I still disagree with you on the designer denim thing. I see desinger denim being jeans like, Prada denim or D & G denim. I consider designer denim as a poor excuse to be labled as a jean. I just see it kind of gressy...This Red Ear is not like these in terms of fits or detail. It is made in real looms with real indigo with real( original fits etc...) Its identiy, I believe is really cool.

    I would never buy a designer denim brand. I am a 501 guy. I have rockabily attributes and listen to hardcore music to fall asleep. Let me tell you that I would buy some more Red Ear.


    to me designer denim doesn't necessarily mean bad jeans. i just think it has that reputation because many designers sell expensive jeans that are not high quality.

    i say that paul smith jeans are designer because paul smith is a hot designer right now. but you are right, the jeans have a lot more classic themes.

    it's very interesting to see how much you love those paul smith red ears, considering that you are a 501 purest. i'm sure paul smith would be happy to hear this!

I heard they were claiming old levis (cone) looms. I don't buy it. Also, I did like the rivets, especially the hidden rivets. I think all jeans should have them. Sorry for the 1.25 post. Edit: when you say real indigo dye does that mean natural indigo. THe ones i saw didn't look like natural indigo.

    natural indigo is actually chemically identical to synthetic indigo, but this is a topic for another thread....

    Hi,

    I like the sugercane but they are a little to heavy for me. I actually love the idea of surgercane mixed with cotton. Is there a hemp jean out there???I very much like the 45rpm. I believe Red Ear and 45RPM denims are made in the same factory but not sure about this?? Does anyone know????

    AFAIK, they are *not* manufactured in the same factories, but the denim is from the same mills.
