Roy. (expurgated edition)

Recommended Posts

I have two pairs on ice that I picked up during the pandemic, Big Bro 1 and Kinda Special 2. Not sure when I will get to them. Since the pandemic and WFH I pretty much only wear pants with elastic waist bands now. But it's not like I need the money so I guess I will just keep them in case I go back to wearing jeans in the next 30-40 years.

Not great mirror shot, but hopefully this gives some idea of the fit. Definitely slimmer and the white fabric is pretty gauzy. I’m 5’10” and 135 lbs, slim/athletic build. Went with a small which is what I take in all tshirts I can think of. It’s a 50/50 cotton poly blend, so hopefully no shrink, but it feels like it’ll stretch right back out too. With the TCB WW2 contest pair and their very high waist.

Big Bro Peanuts (size 34) listed on a popular auction website, pre-owned & price adjusted for scarcity.

A pair of the duck work pants (size 34) also available at a more popular price.

I prefer the £1127 Grateful Dead T-shirt to the Roy ducks listed ;)

Super accurate, I just had a guy message me about an old jacket I have for sale that’s listed for 90 bucks. He said “bro can you please drop this to $40?” Yeah sure, after fees and shipping I’ll take the 25 dollar sale. :rolleyes:

Sooner or later the bigger fish will bite, just takes a little time sometimes. But in this situation (the Roy’s for almost a grand) I don’t think there’s a market for that. If I ever sold any of my pairs (which I don’t think I ever will) I would only list them for a small percentage over MSRP depending on the state of them. I think this is roughly a 300% markup.

Beautiful @tewsday. How tight/loose of a fit are they on you?

Thanks @heyson. They honestly fit me perfect and is a relatively loose fit (what you’d expect from a R01 classic straight jean). They did shrink a bit from the washes/soaks, but nothing significant. I’ll be sure to post an updated fit pic when I get the chance. To get an idea, I posted a fit of me wearing them new a while a back (link below):

I see you also have the same pair. You’re making good progress on them. Keep wearing em hard
