    I'd definitely go with APC. It is much superior to Reiss in cut and denim quality at only a slightly higher pricepoint, and is of only marginally lower quality than Miyake, while being much more reasonably priced.

    LA Guy, do you know of any stores in LA that carry the unwashed indigo APC jeans?

    Is Reiss readily available in the US?

    I tend to find that Reiss is expensive for what it is.

    KBond in LA carried APC jeans as does the HTC (Hollywood Trading Company) section of Fred Segal in Santa Monica. Not sure about the Melrose location. Barneys also carried the line, but I'm not sure about the jeans. There is also a new store, opened after I left, on the Westside, that carries the line, from what I've heard.

    I think that Reiss is exclusive to the UK, or maybe has some outlets in Europe. I've never seen it in the US.

    They have just opened a store in NYC; however, previously they were predominantly in the UK. Reiss Website They tend to have nice, designer style stuff, at less than designer prices.

Worth the pricepoint? Thanks, Dan

Thanks, Dan[/quote] That's a tough one, they are high quality (like Prada, Dior, or McQueen, not Kiton and Brioni) However, they are cheaper than Prada etc. And their styling is just as good. Certainly good stuff.

    tough because I have not owned any of their products for a long time, but they seem like very high quality for the price.

    Do you know if US prices are consistent with what's on the website?

    I can't say for sure, because I have not been to the US store yet, but I would expect so.
