    I have both the selvage Ralfs and the greycast Ralfs. The selvage ones are getting washed soon (after about four or five wears) to keep them "dry" looking, for dress. The grey ones are being broken in the right way. I think both feel very high quality, and while I think the selvage are worth the extra $70 when you compare both at full price, the sale price of the greycast ones vs. full price on the selvage at Context is a good deal.

    Awesome, I think I'll go try and pick up a pair of those greycast Ralfs then. Hopefully they still have my size. At at 50% off that makes them just under $100? That seems like a pretty good deal.

    Yesterday I didn't have any pairs of dry denim and by this weekend I'll have two! [​IMG]

    I hope I have the patience to break in both pairs [​IMG]

    Here are the pricings from the Context post at superfuture:

    RR Greycast for $92.50 is a damn bargain. I'm thinking about buying a pair as a backup. I feel like such a hoarder. [​IMG]

    Woah. I feel Satan nudging me towards more denim. And I have not even settled yet on my first dry denim. AAAARGH! [​IMG] P.s. do you know if they have any very dark/black dry denim on sale (the Hiro Ito looks too skinny for my tastes. I have skinny legs relatively but I, uhm, don't feel like showing them off like that [​IMG] - plus I am not a fan of straight jeans)?

    How do we get a hold of Context? Do they have a website or are they on SF? Damn those are some good bargains expecially on the RRDG.

    I don't know what else they have on sale as I'm not in the area. But it sounds like the Slim Jim is a good candidate for you. It has a 16" thigh andleg opening (according to revolveclothing), so it's not as tapered as you might like.

    Now that I think about it, I want a pair. Must....r-e-s-i-s-t...[​IMG]

    Thanks guys, I went and tried on some straight svens today (since I'm looking for a straighleg) and I loved the fit of the 32's, so now I'm really stuck.

    Would you guys recommend sizing down to a 31 on the nudies or would a 32 be best? They have a great price on these at Oi Polloi so if I got them I'd be getting them there. You guys have any experience at that place? Do they just automatically convert the british prices into dollars or is there something I have to do?

    Thanks again for all the advice [​IMG]


    I've been into the actual Oi Polloi store as I used to live in Manchester. It's a great little place with some awesome clothes. I spoke to the dude there about dry denim for a good few minutes and he was a really nice guy who knew alot about jeans. They're completely legit and definitely worth buying from. Highly recommend them.

    2. sugarcane 1947- this is the second best choice for your starter jean. has a fit similar to 501, straight-cut, low-rise and button-fly. a great levi's repro and a great buy at $175

    Next time before you copy paste someone else's posts, make sure that the prices are still the same now as they were six months ago.
