Roy. (expurgated edition)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the KS1001 and RT1002 models are made with the same black seed denim?

I thought I read somewhere that the denim is slightly different. The thread color in the selvedge line looks different to me...could be that it’s just faded. Just curious

Correct, the KS1001 is not Black Seed Cone, it was another Cone Roy used back in 2014 or so.

^ What denim was used in KS1002?  A little heavier than that of KS1001 ...

Cool, thanks @Broark. I have the RN1, RS2, RN4, KS1001, and RT1002. They are all made with a different denim correct?

Sounds like it @81611, I believe all those models used different denims. I have some overlap in my collection, lots of Black Seed Cone. But I’ve also got a few of those earlier models before he started using that denim.

@JohnM I think the KS1002 used the same denim as the RS/N04, leftover Cone Project denim. I could be wrong through.

Thanks I actually wasn’t purposely buying each pair for the different denim. I was looking for a pair that fit right but I’m glad they’re all not the same Cone

If I’m not mistaken, KS1002 was a 14.5oz Cone while the KS1001 was a 12.5oz Cone.

^  Thanks Shorty Long.  14.5 oz sounds right for the KS1002.  Didn't realize the KS1001 denim was only 12.5 oz.

I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure the Black Seed is around 13.75, and the denim on the KS1001 is lighter. I seem to remember it been listed as 12.5 when it was released, but it could have been 12oz.

Of course, I’m going by memory alone, so I can’t say I’m 100% certain on those figures.

I stand corrected. My apologies. Roy thought they could have been 12oz. He was even more wrong than I was. :)

super stoked to see in however many (2-3?) weeks what comes of the Leroys... new fabric & new details seem especially groovy. I feel like the cut has to err on the side of tapered(?) since it would be hard to go straighter and wider without becoming a pseudo-farmer. At least, that's what I'd look like. Pocketbags look like they're returning to a natural undyed fabric as opposed to the duck of late... time to speculate wildly i guess

Two Jeans. Both R01. Two different Cone denims.

Damn, I guess this means I'm going to have to buy both pairs. :rolleyes:

As soon as I saw 12oz I knew I was in. The R01 is not a fit I would normally wear but if it doesn't work for me I know there are plenty of denim tailors that could help me with a bit of taper.

Very excited and looking forward to seeing more details.

Everyone will be able to justify getting these as "summer jeans." These should move quick. Still curious what the LeRoy details will be.

Wait, they were supposed to be different denim AND cut, no? I remember seeing it somewhere, or am I losing it? Not that I’m complaint if it’s the regular R01, just confused.

Also, that previous pic form IG with two different boxes with belt loops makes more sense now.

Same cut, but due to the different denim the fits may be very slightly different between the two denim styles.  We'll have measurements up for both of course a few days before the release in a couple of weeks.

I could go for another pair of R01 in a different denim. Even if I haven't worn the ones I have yet. As tempting as it is to get both denim's, I'll prolly opt for just the darker color. It's Roy. 'nuff said.

We’ll see how the measurements and details shake out, y’all already know I’m a Roy collector so. B)
