From its origins in New York in 2002, Rag and Bone instantaneously distinguished itself by combining British heritage with directional, modern design. As one of the original premium denim brands, Rag and Bone has been a longtime favorite among the NYC, celebrity and so-chic crowds. Their commitment to high-quality in material and design has kept the brand relevant, even after being established well over 15 years ago.

This is due to the fabric technology they use in their collection. Though it sounds like marketing talk, the truth is that their entire collection is very, noticeably comfortable. Check out the sizing details below, including a link to their fit guide.

Rag and Bone 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.

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.

  • • 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.
  • • Know thine self! Premium denim is all about fit, so if Rag and Bone fit you well, wear them all you want.
  • • Rag and Bone are still fashion forward, so you will be chic wearing their denim — just ask Charlize Theron, Jennifer Garner, and Ariana Grande.

    Black Skinny Rag and Bone Jeans

    Black Skinny Jeans

    A cropped classic high rise skinny made in Japanese denim with a faded black wash. These are an NYC classic look and could work in a casual work environment or a night out.

    Dre Ankle Jeans by Rag and Bone

    Dre Ankle Jeans by Rag and Bone

    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.

    Chester Boyfriend Jean by Rag and Bone

    Chester Jean by Rag and Bone

    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.
