Red Cloud & Co.
« on: August 15, 2011, 03:43:43 am »
Red Cloud - reproduction standard jeans from China



Made by a jeansmith located in the city of Shenyang, China.
100% Chinese long-staple cotton selvage denim, with the last dip of the dyeing process using natural indigo. The findings and threads are from Japan, because the Chinese ones couldn't satisfy his standard of quality.

Some Red Cloud impressions







Some cosmetic/constructional issues (loose threads)





Not a real problem and I've seen this on other jeans too. But can be done better

Denim





The fit (they were very tight but stretched a bit...still not the most flattering fit IMO)



(yes I'm wearing an IH tee here ;) )

you get a "like" for the IH t and the macros and all but that fit isn't my cup of tea at all and I think you have way better fitting jeans. it actually does look quiet ok but they still need to stretch an inch or so in the thighs!
maybe it will look better when cuffed and worn with boots...

damn...you got me..haven't prepared such a picture.

I think it looks worse from the back (although the small and tight whiskers already show a tight fit)

no duoble cuff, just make a bit smaller cuff so they the cuff sits a bit lower

While I was in China I tried most of their models - this cut is not my cup of tea.
Nice brand - doing their own thing in China - all the right intentions.
Fullcount is having on of their current models made by their workshop/factory in China is using their Chinese denim (made of Chinese cotton)...

Where do you guys get your Red Cloud stuff? I only know the Singapore based Tuckshop, are there any other online retailers?

There are a few others by now, at least one in US and even one here in Moscow, Russia.

You can also try to get it proxy-ed from somebody who can buy from TaoBao - probably the cheapest depending on proxy fees, shipping fees and customs (+other hassle)...

Red Cloud have a China domestic price and an international price.
In order to get an idea about the domestic China retail price as well as a wider range of their products, check out the TaoBao shop - Red Cloud is working closely with these guys.
If you happen to be in China or passing through you might find a retailer or can visit the TaoBao-shop (which is located in the Guangzhou/Guangdong region).

Prices outside of China are certainly higher, but you will get great service (from most retailers) and hardly any hassle. I can only recommend TuckShop and the gang!
