Happy September everyone! Can you believe Fall is almost here? Have you bought your new Fall jeans yet? If not, here is the final part of our 4-part series on the best denim brands you’ve never heard of. Don’t forget to read the posts on Nudie, Sugar Cane, PRPS, Kicking Mule and Naked & Famous.  Today we will introduce you to two more selvage denim brands –  RLL and Iron Heart.

RRL_JeansRRL - Surely you’ve heard of mega brand Ralph Lauren. But did you know the luxury retailer has selvage jeans? RRL (pronounced Double R L) jeans are vintage style – inspired by cattlemen and ranchers in Colorado. This fact may sound surprising, given the fact the jeans have become a celebrity favorite. They have been seen on stars ranging from Kanye West to Tom Cruise to Twilight star Cam Gigandet.

These jeans are offered in a wide range of styles from slim to boot cut and colors from reds to yellows. While they can be a tad expensive in stores, check out Polo Ralph Lauren outlets to find a deal!

While most jeans are made with 13-15oz denim, Iron Heart use 21 oz, making them one of the heaviest brands. Though it is heavier, the long threads of Zimbabwean cotton are loomed together in such a way that they are still soft to the touch.

It’s not surprising that these jeans are popular with the biker set. They range in price from $265-$350. While this might seem high, the jeans are meant to last a lifetime. A small price to pay for a reliable product that you are sure to love.

Don’t forget you can save 25% on your Johnny Patch denim patch order with code B2S2010. Now through Sept. 6th. Happy shopping!
