The Official Roy Denim Thread

Jun 25, 2010 @ 15:06
Roy Denim is an interesting up-and-comer in the US denim scene.

He focuses on one five-pocket straight leg denim style.

A great alternative to APC and a cheaper alternative to SC or FH.

i already got my pair, he's not selling them anymore cause he's on vacation i think
Jun 25, 2010 @ 17:25
actually, it looks like he is taking orders until tonight at 11:59 for the $150 deal.

it looks like a pretty great thing, what do you think of the denims? i may get a pair.
Jun 25, 2010 @ 18:27
I decided to pull the trigger, these look like the perfect replacement for my APC's which are now totally destroyed.

Bump for 11:59 pm!

for fit pic references just hit up sufu..the ROY thread is boomin there. didnt ever expect HB to take an interest in roy seeing as its mainly vintage cut denims. shits are definetly nice though. plan on picking up a pair once he returns to production,
Jun 25, 2010 @ 20:04
they feel nice, i only tried them on. i purchased them knowing that i'd get them tapered, so they're at the shop right now. btw don't size down on these
Jun 25, 2010 @ 20:16
well the cut and everything looks relatively similar to APC NS's, which are, for many people, the entry point into raw denim. but roy is definitely not really hypey type dude lol.

I hope the prices don't go up when he comes back but it probably will.. I need a new pair of denim.

I've been eyeing Roy's for a little while. Seems like good stuff and everyone I've seen on sufu looks happy with the denim.

same here, been contemplating on getting a pair of Roy's. but waited too long, and "the ship has sailed". he's kinda corny, no?

his video is pretty cool. i really dig that fitted orange zip hoodie. check out that spike on the hood! it's like an elf hat, sweet!

Roy made this pencil case about three or four years ago for Cone to be given to their best clients or friends.
The two metal rivets are my initials, i'm guessing he got a list of people they were giving them to before they were even made.

I use mine as a travel yoyo case.

Roy's Jeans - The Nihon Straight Leg

We've got a new release from the one man show that goes by the name of Roy.

Working with what he describes as one of the best looking pieces of denim he's seen yet, Roy has produced a run of 100 pairs of a new straight leg jean. This jean is made up of a 15oz unsanforized denim made by the Nihon Menpu mill of Japan. It's a straight leg fit, slightly different than the past straight leg fit and with new stitch patterns including a vintage style waist-band that's chainstitched and single-needle stitched.

Also, for those that missed it the first time around we've produced a video showing off some of Roy's skills, it was difficult to show what takes two hours or more compressed into a three minute long video, but we hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse into the world of Roy.

ROY - The SE-DUCK Pants

Roy's newest creation is a pant made of a selvedge cotton duck fabric woven by Cone Mills in North Carolina. The fabric is a medium weight duck with a black selvedge id.

The details he's included on this pant are quite amazing and he's gone a bit over the top with the pocket bag design. The pant doesn't have a coin pocket on the outside so he's put it on the outside of the inner pocket bag. Multiple thread shades and gauges are used through-out the pant and even utilizing the selvedge edge of the pocket bag material.

Here's a short video of Roy explaining the construction of the pocket bags:
