It looks like OAK doesn't have any more 30x32. Is this the size I need? My RRDS are 30x32 and fit awesomely. Also what are the pros/cons of the resin wash? Should I look for the raw instead? Thanks!

Get a size 29/32 for a similar fit to the 30/32 RRDS. Get a 30/32 if you want a looser, more relaxed fit. They will still will be large, but shrink to size (length and waist) after a few washes.

Places that carry 5EP:
American Rag, LA
Rolo, SF
MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing), SF
Leo Miami
Steven Alan (I think - not sure about this one)

There are more, obviously, but I am drawing a blank right now.

Thanks. What about the resin wash? Would you recommend them over the raw or vice-versa?

I believe 5EP's standard inseam is 32-33, though there are some 34's that pop up from time to time.

Factory People's sold out...and I'm kicking myself for not doing the deal yesterday when they had a pair of lowdown boot dark worns for 70 bucks.

Leo Miami only has washed...
Steven Alan has nothing listed.

Stuff is pretty hard to find at the end of sale season

Yeah, I'm seeing that! I'm really ready to pull the trigger on these in another week or so, too. I'd like to buy from outside NY to avoid taxes as well.

1st post but i have lurked for a long while...

The only downside to the resin wash is that they take so long to fade. Also, if you are in NYC, try Underdog East or Famous Friends. I have been awaiting their new line because of the superb quality, but have not seen or heard anything lately. I emailed them in the summer and they wrote back saying that they were doing a fall line, and spring line, and a women's line...nothing yet.

See, I don't mind that; I want them to stay dark for a long time. My RRDS are going to fade quickly enough, so I figure I'll supplement them with RB6 and 5EP.

Hey guys - I Just opened up a shop called DressCodes, not to many people have heard of us yet, but... I have some 5ep's left. Both the "Boot Resin One Wash" as well as the "Boot Dark Worn". I have pretty much one left in each size - 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 36. Here are some pictures of the "Boot Dark Worn", and I will also post pictures of the "Resin One Wash" tomorrow. You can PM me, or call up the shop - 404. 343. 2894.

Damn, I just dropped that much on some RB6s. Maybe I can find another $160 in the couch cushions.

You have the ever elusive 34 inch inseam?
