I have a pair of R01 XX20 size 32 I’ll offer up if anyone wants them.  
 

Hot washed twice, worn once for a couple hours.  They were hemmed to 33” and are 30” now so doubt they would shrink anymore.  
 

Comes with pocket flasher and raw hem cutoffs.  
 

PM if interested.

@UkeNo seems like good amount of leg twisting?

Yeah the leg twist is quite strong. Probably the most of all my jeans actually. Doesn’t affect the wearability though.

I'm selling my Roy R01 LeRoy from 2018, size 32, w/ cloth patch and... well, you know... Black seed denim. Soaked, washed twice, hot dryer, steam ironed. Fully shrunk. No fading, crocking, creasing, marbling at all. Unhemmed, has Roy's original chain stitch hem. They're a size too small for me. I've only tried them on and wore them around my home for a couple hours. DM to discuss. I'll sell them to whomever is most interested, not necessarily the first offer. Pics upon request. 

 

Measurements, raw / washed:

waist, straight across: 16.5/33.0 / 15.5/31.0 - after wearing for a couple of hours there isn't a significant change in the waist, but it will stretch with consistent wear. 

wasit, aligned: 17.0/34.0 / 15.875/31.75

front rise: 13.0 / 12.25

back rise: 17.5 / 16.25

thigh @ crotch: 13.5 / 13

thigh 2" down: 12.875 / 12.375

knee 14" down: 9.625 / 9.125

hem: 8.875 / 8.5

inseam: 38.5 / 34.75

Whats the consensus here on black seed? I only have one pair and I have the XUVS Leroys. Seems people aren't crazy about black seed but my pair is pretty new so I haven't really seen how they evolve. Just from what I'm picking up seems like people aren't crazy about it.

I wouldn't say people aren't crazy about it, I think Roy just made a lot of pairs with the same denim. So people are more likely to be interested in different denims.
I think Black Seed is a great denim, I sure own a lot of it...

Black Seed is top notch—it’s just all Roy had been using for a long time, so I think folks who already had 2 or 3 pairs might’ve been less excited for more releases in the same denim

Another big fan of the Black Seed denim. I think the denim really suits the R01 cut and assume that's why Roy made so many versions of it with the Black Seed.

Love my black seed test lots.  I'll try to post an evo shot soon (front only, unfortunately, for the usual reasons).  They look, feel, and fit great.

Thanks for the input guys. My only pair is the indigo lovers but I like them because they are very unique compared to my other pairs.

I love my black seed R01s. I think the main gripe about the denim is that it is not fast fading. I have worn these everyday since March when the pandemic started and am just starting to see major signs of wear. The denim is super comfortable and has a great texture but IMO a lot of people want instant fades.

I love it, but it is a slow fader and the post-wash electric blue is probably not everyone’s cup of tea.  

For the initiated, its about as good as modern American denim gets (RIP Cone).  The vertical fade and slubs are interesting without being exaggerated like a lot of Japanese denim and while the overall fabric looks saturated and keeps its color longer, the edges pop for nice fades on seams, and even the shell stitching, rather quickly.

Roy cuts aren’t tight, so while you won’t likely get a stereotypical high-contrast “SuFu fade,” you do get a good-looking, comfortable, and hard-wearing denim that looks better with age.  

Here are a couple pics, will try to follow up with some better ones in natural light tomorrow.  

Fair to say there aren’t enough or as many Roy fade photos as other brands, I think given there just aren’t as many pairs floating around!

how steadfastly cone denim holds on to the indigo is the best thing it's got going for it, doesn't go white so quickly like many japanese denim

Same seller has a pair of slightly worn Memorial Jeans up in 33, bid starting at 1 dollar. Hell of a deal.

Will definitely be keeping an eye out on both the Test Lots and Memorials on Ebay. I already have 2 pairs of Black Seed Roys, but maybe 1 more wouldn't hurt :rolleyes:

@Broark - Do you know what was the retail price for the 2018 Roy Test Lots and Memorials?
