Rag and Bone Jeans Size Review – to Size Up or Down?

Recent reports (2018) have shown Rag and Bone running a little big, so keep that in mind when looking. One thing to note is that the different fits are made of different material. Any blend material — that includes synthetics or elastic — will be more forgiving.

If you don’t want to go through the work of breaking in a traditional fabric blend like Rag and Bone, check out DL1961. They have a similar price point, are famously comfortable, and have the same NYC aesthetic.

Are Rag and bone jeans worth it?

In the early 2000s, Rag and Bone established itself a one of the top “premium” denim brands. Since then, as we all know, there has been a huge boom in the amount of premium denim out there, so there are definitely more options to choose from.

With all these options, you must be asking, “Are Rag and Bone” worth it? Our answer is yes, with a few things to consider.

  • β€’ Their jeans are great as basics — they are neutral enough in wash and fade that they can go with a lot of outfits, making them one of the more versatile premium brands.
  • β€’ Know thine self! Premium denim is all about fit, so if Rag and Bone fit you well, wear them all you want.
  • β€’ Rag and Bone are still fashion forward, so you will be chic wearing their denim — just ask Charlize Theron, Jennifer Garner, and Ariana Grande.

    Our favorites from Rag and Bone’s women’s denim line.

    Rag and Bone Black Jeans


    Rag and Bone Black Jeans

    The high rise skinny are a cropped classic high rise skinny made in Japanese denim with a faded black wash. These black jeans are our favorite of their skinny jeans.


    Rag and Bone Jeans


    Rag and Bone Ankle Dre Boyfriend Jeans

    A cropped mid-rise boyfriend fit jean – there is also a “Dre” which is a full length vs the ankle shown above. I prefer the ankle as it makes your legs look longer and you don’t have to worry about your cuffs hitting the ground.


    Boyfriend Jeans


    Rag and Bone Chester

    Lowkey this is my favorite fit from their entire collection. The “Chester” is a 90s throwback – comfy, workman inspired jean. I would put this pair first, but it’s not the most versatile look, so I don’t know if it’s the right buy if you are looking at getting your first pair.
