Looking for another pair of jeans.. I like the RB6 because it allows for my ample seat. o_O

Needless to say.. I'm looking for recs on jeans with a similar fit. I was looking at Sugar Cane Edo Ais and Nudie RR - I'll need to head to the Denim Bar to try the RRs.. the others, I probably won't be able to try before I buy.

When I was looking for my first pair of nice denim I was debating between the RB6 and RRDS. I tried both on and the fit is very similar. I ended up buying the RRDS because I loved how they looked faded and the stitching is more urban/noticable while the RB6 stiching is more dress/quiet. I'm very happy with my RRDS a month in and can't wait for 6 months to go by.

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

Anyone else care to chime in? Any Japanese dry that's similar.. or no because most of those are repros (besides SCs)?

The only one that has a somewhat similar fit that I've found is the Uniqlo greenlines, but they are a bit wider in the leg and have somewhat higher rise.

kicking mule 1950 dry will be a good try if you head into denim bar, as will the chip & pepper dry 87 selvedge, a little slimmer but a good jean to try

They made this season's rb6 a little wider thankfully after getting rid of the rb1s. Now I need a pair.

Rehashing an old topic here, but I got a couple of questions. What is the actual waist and inseam measurements on the rb6? I'm a 30 waist and can do a 32" inseam but wouldn't mind them a tad longer.

If these don't work is there anything out there in sub $200 dollar range that has a comparable fit and construction in dark indigo?

Is it me or do the sc002 look a little slimmer than the rb6s or is that just because the inseam is 36 inches?
