    Weather is cooling off and I'm looking forward to putting my dark stantons back into rotation.
    I was going to wash them at the start of this fall but took them out yesterday and they aren't even dirty, so I'm just gonna riiiiiiide these out until next year, they'll have about 8months of true wear by that point.

    awesome, thanks Karl! Sounds like some really cool improvements over my last one. The forearms on the old one were really tight on me and the canvas was still pretty crunchy after a ton of wears. Pumped to see the shading of this Italian canvas! I've got an Apolis coat made from Italian wool that has been great.

    Hey RT guys. I just received my first pair of RT denim, and I have finally found a pair that isn't too restrictive in the top block/thighs while also maintaining a slim bottom leg. I'm pretty short at 5'9" and my lower legs are definitely runner's legs and skinny, but I have some decent thighs due to cross fit/insanity type workouts. In fact, given the good fit up top, I can't decide between the SK and the Stanton - both in a size 31 over-dyed indigo. I really, really like both fits.

    Anyway, I sent RT an email late last night, and I'm sure they will follow up (customer service has been good), but take a look at this picture and let me know if the back belt loop is supposed to be slanted/diagonal like this. It may just be a part of their style, but it seemed a little odd and I wasn't sure. I would appreciate your feedback!

    Based on random pics I looked at online, that seems to be normal

    The slanted belt loop is normal. I have several pairs. One of the many things that sets them apart from other jeans. I'm jealous, those over dyed are sick! To me, the main difference in the two fits is the SK has a smaller opening at the bottom. There are other slight spec differences(i.e. rise and knee), but for me it comes down to the opening.

    Thanks guys! I think it's a cool feature as well, but it looked odd at first so I wanted to make sure. breck81, which do you prefer? My wife/boss told me that she really liked both fits, so it's my decision now. I have never been a "skinny" jean guy, but I really like the tapered/slim look. My lower legs are so slim that I'm leaning towards the SK, but at the same time I don't want someone to immediately say "man, those are some skinny jeans" - if you get my point haha. I've even considered keeping the SK for these darker indigo jeans and picking up a pair of the desert wash (more casual) in the Stanton. I know it's my decision in the end, but I keep going back and forth.

    My 14.5oz Stantons' are my favorite jeans. I don't have the smallest legs so those work best. I also like the Stanton opening for the foot wear i primarily wear.I also cuff them a bit, which closes the opening of the Stanton. With the SK, I wouldnt cuff them like i do the Stantons. All that said, for me they are both "slim" fitting because i sized down to account for stretch. To me comes down to leg opening.

    Hey guys, new on here. I recently purchased my first pair of RGT, my first pair of premium denim at all for that matter, a pair of SK 12.5 oz in the Rough Wash. Now I am hooked and want to expand into some raw denim, any suggestions on where to go next? I am looking at the SK 14.5 Tonal or the SK 14.5 Indigo, but would actually be open to any of the RGT SKs even the SK Stealth look amazing, I just want my next pair to be a little different than my SK 12.5 Roughs. I am also pretty dead set on the Raw Denim Workshirt and would like some contrast in the denim...

    Thanks for your suggestions...and keep up the good work Karl, your work is amazing...

    Just received my first RT Stantons in the Graywash. Love the legs, but the waist isn't quite cutting it. According to the site, the 28 waist measures 15.25" across and mine measure at 14.5". Damn shame, as I love the fit of the legs but really need that waist to fit more. Right now, it hurts my fingers just to try and even close the top button. I'd hate to have to size up and lose the great fit on the legs (not to mention they don't have any 29s in stock right now anyway). Think I got a miscalculated pair? I really love these jeans, but if I can't wear them ... ugh.

    Anyone with experience with the graywash denim? Can I hold out hope it'll stretch out another inch? I'm guessing no since it's not raw denim... Emailed the company but haven't heard anything back in 2 days, so I'm not sure if I'm returning them or they'll tell me better news.

    Check it, and this is with the jeans stretched out as wide as I could make em.

    Well, for one, you measured it "wrong".
    Go to the RGT site and go to sizing guide, they'll explain how they measure their denim. So if you measure them the same way you'll likely find the measurements they have are accurate. Diff brands measure diff ways so if you're comparing measurements to something you already own you gotta check and make sure it aligns with that brand.
    For ref, I'm a 33 in all Stanton's (dark, greyscale, overdye). All measurements were pretty much the same, the only diff was in how much each pair stretched.

    Thanks man. The wife said to keep the SK, so I kept the SK haha. I really like both fits though, so my next pair will probably be the Stanton. I really, really love the fit and quality of these jeans! This is definitely my favorite brand now.

    Welcome to the RgT Fam! Wear the hell out of them. Rogue is my favorite brand out there overall. Their shirts and jackets are top notch as well. I always feel like the coolest kid on the block when wearing my Rogue gear.

    Thank you sir! I'm already eyeing a few of their jackets, in particular the lined waxed canvas supply jacket. I believe the lined version would be perfect for some of those colder, wet days in South Carolina this winter.
