I've known of Rag & Bone for some time, I just hadn't gotten around to buying any. Remember Sleeping Beauty? What has always interested me about the duo is they started the line with basically no previous formal fashion training, yet have a deep understanding of form & functionality. In a nutshell...what works well. Whenever possible they produce the majority of their garments in U.S. factories that still sew clothes the same way they did 50 years ago. Known for their basic pieces, I decided to purchase what put them on the map - denim. Upon trying them on I noticed immediately that these are grown up jeans with a great mid-rise, and not too slim fit. My new pair of Bell Heritage will make a nice addition in my closet to their denim brethren.
