What are peoples views on white jeans? I know a bit euro perhaps but really into them. Was wearing them yesterday and they seem to get the strangest stares.

? No problem with them over here. I think they go well with a lot of lighter colored shirts.

I like them too, but in a more limited range of fits/cuts than indigo jeans. They look a little bizarre and are more difficult to pull off when they're very loose or very tight, as well as when they have a pronounced bootcut or taper. 501's look good in white, but even better would be something with a little lower rise. It's too bad APC doesn't have a white New Standard; that would be a kick-ass pair of jeans. I also like some of the treated white denim from Helmut Lang and Diesel (at least the more subtle variety, rather than the kind with huge amounts of fake dirt splotched everywhere).

I personally like them if you have a thin build. I wouldnt mind a pair myself but the gf has put her foot down that I will not wear white jeans, at least in her presence.

I just bought a pair recently. I can't really see wearing them at home in San Francisco, but outside of the city they should be fine. Wife was skeptical but really likes them now that she sees them.

I have three pairs, 1 Levi's 501 and 2 Diesel Raboxes. I wear mine with light color button down shirts or polo shirts. I have no problem wearing them in the spring or summer time.

It is pretty suitable in golf courts I guess...but it is pretty unusual and the stares you get are justified.

I had no idea there was ever an RRL model that came in white. Where did you find them, and what is the fit like?

are white jeans made out of denim that was dyed white instead of indigo-dyed?

I think some are died optic white from the raw 'greige' colour which makes them really bright. A lot of companies seem to make them a cream/white these days so they look close but then don't get that extra bit of whiteness that sets them apart.

Who does pure white denim I am not so sure anymore
