Only at Kohls?

Are there two lines of R and Rs now? Or are the remaining R and Rs at designer denim store just "old stock"?

I am totally confused.

Just one line. Khols bought the brand, and are producing their own, lame line.

Technically, there are two lines.

Kohls did not buy R&R. R&R filed for bankruptcy and then sold it's brand and trademarks to VF Corp. VF is behind all of the "new" R&R, which are cheap knockoffs made overseas.

The original R&R were high end jeans Made in the USA. The company operated for around a decade and its jeans were completely distinct (and much higher quality), than what you see at Kohls. These are the jeans that were so often counterfeited and that you sometimes still see in high end department stores.

Essentially, nothing about Kohls R&R has anything to do with the original R&R other than the name.

Ok, well then Id better stalk up while I can.

Ive been wearing the real R and Rs for years. My problem is that I sit cross legged allot, and I always wear out the groin eventually.

So I have 6 pairs sitting in my closet with holes in in the groin under the back pockets.

Are the Colburg ones suppose to be made in "Guatemala"?

Colburg is a fit that were made as a full retail and an STD pair. Unfortunately, the Kohl's line also includes a Colburg fit. You have to know the wash to tell the difference. You can always post photos here and members could tell you which one it is.

I'll take some pictures of some of my Rocks and post them tonight. I have some legit Henleys and Taylors that I have only worn a few times and don't like the relaxed fit. I bought them at Schad Blue which is a designer only denim store here in Ottawa Canada.
