I *believe* the fabric is a small batch from cone, I think it's RHT. 

(Q, Did Cone ever make LHT?) 

The same fabric is being used on the LeRoy world tour (type-thingy....) 

This specific Jean wasn't on sale ever, just gifted to a couple of people. 

I'd be keen on these, I like the silhouette, build and the fabric.

Don't quote me on any of this....I'm just an idiot...

Cone has made LHT.  I posted some (now sold out probably) Wranglers that used LHT in the WAYDT thread.

@MJF9Yeah, you would have to call the Wrangler popup shop in Greensboro to see if they still have any.  I wouldn't be surprised if they're all gone as this was back in February when I went by for helming by Evan.

^ sorry mate I wasn't very clear... I meant 5 of those Roys... a bit of a coincidence with the Wrangler numbers then!

Cone also used to make the LHT denim for Lee I believe.

Does anyone have fully shrunk measurements for the RS00 in a size 34? I’m kinda nervous about the rise shrinking below 11” if I end up putting them in the dryer. Usually I wear a 32 or 33 but given how I wash and how the black seed denim reportedly shrinks, I figure I’d size up.

I wouldn't size up. Buy your usual Sizing with Roy's. The RS00 is a fuller cut than previous models.

In your case a 33 might be the way to go. Not likely that the rise will shrink to less than 11".

Ideally don’t need any more jeans and the inability to dial in a fit with either the Ks02 in 34 or 36 frustrates me....but the 35s ...on Saturday.....

I'm too lazy to measure but I'm pretty sure my Test Lot (which I think is the same pattern as RS with a couple style changes) in size 32 has a 10.75" inseam after several machine washes and air dries. The raw measurement was 11.42".  The waist will stretch back to raw, not sure if you'd be OK with that in a size 34.

if you are worried about the rise just wait for the memorial/peanut cut which will be made again

Does the peanut have along rise than the current rs offering ?

Thanks so much...are the memorials the same as the RS00s, not a lot of fit pics stating RS although there are some in the last ttow pages of memorials?

I was lucky enough to get in on the RT1002 drop yesterday.  By "lucky" I mean I wear the only size he's making (38) & happened to interact with someone on Reddit who was kind enough to bring the drop to my attention.

 

Sometimes everything goes wrong and the world seems out to get you, and sometimes things just fall beautifully into place.  Yesterday was one of those days.  Now I wait.

Honestly, they seem to be holding up pretty good.  Previously, anyone that wore "work wear" to "work" came back with pics f tattered jeans and busted seams after a few weeks.

They’re holding up incredibly well.

Most accurate photo I can get of how they actually look. Now that they’re dry

It'll be interesting to see what your Roys look like with 1 yr of usage with the construction job!

      Great jeans, just not getting the wear they deserve.
      Washed a couple of times. Very little wear.

      Indonesian brand, retailing around $150 to $210 depending on fabric weight.
      Pretty nice details all things considered, I think.
      Denim is from Okayama.

      Perfect condition. Worn 3 times. Soaked warm twice. One Machine Wash Col- NO SPIN. No Shrinkage left. Chain stitch by Roy. These are just too big for my slim frame. If you are reading you know how difficult it is to obtain a pair of Roys. Particularly with Cone shutting down. A chance for some "unabtaninum" denim

      Would also consider trades for something slimmer.
