Reposting this since it was in the wrong section and I can't delete that thread.
So I've been out of the loops on denims for the past couple years and haven't been on this forum for a while. 2nd time ever I've been to Kohl's to look for some travel luggage on sale, and to my surprise, I saw some Rocks here. I was sure they had to be fake since I wouldn't think a "generic" store would sell premium denims. After closely looking, they seem to be real.
After a bunch of sales and coupons, it was $45 + tax. I bought a pair with very mixed feelings. I got a good "deal", but if these are truly real, that also means the end of R&R as a premium brand. I was half hoping for them to be fake.
Anyways, I got home, looked this up, and apparently the news that Kohls is the sole distributor for R&R has been out for 2 years.
Here are some pics. It doesn't feel the same as my non-Kohl's pairs, but I'm not completely disgusted in how they look for feel. Return or keep?
For comparison, Left pair is from Nordstrom many years ago, right pair the one in question from Kohl's
I also bought a shirt there from the sale. It was $30 so I was going to buy it anyways regardless of brand.
