Huh, this is a bit of a curve ball from RRL. Ralph’s most coveted sub-brand for Americana aficionado’s, readers of this site, and even 2013 Johnny Depp when he was in his ‘western vest and too many scarves phase’, makes its fair share of limited edition items. But where RRL tends to draw the limited edition line in the sand is when it comes to tinkering with its core raw denim assortment; you just don’t see much of that, making this pair all the more special.
The made-in-America Ridgeway Jean takes their rigid slim high-waisted jean and re-crafts it with their exclusive Ridgeway twill, a raw Japanese 13.6oz. split-selvedge, left-hand denim. The pair features a haircalf “RRL”-embossed leather patch, is X bar tacked, and has spade pockets to go along with a hand-set chainsttitched waistband with tucked belt loops, for added durability, and a zip-fly. The turquoise-cast denim gives off a bit of a 1950’s vibe with an obvious Lee vibe. The Rebel Without A Cause would be proud—as would Johnny Depp at the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids Choices Awards (do yourself a favor and Google that).
