I still have my rag city blues jeans that zip from front to back from 1979. I have kept them in my closet all these years just because they were different from anything I'd ever seen! I guess they still make them from the same company!!!

Loved my RCB's! Had 5 pair, but at 15, my mother refused to buy the zip arounds for me! The 80's were the best! $17. for a concert ticket to see JP, the Crue, Scorps, Ozzy, Kiss - learning to play quarters, trying quite a few illegal substances... Now that I have my own 14 year old daughter- all I can think is "What the hell was my mother thinking!?!" Thank god I made it out O.K., but great memories in my RCB's!

Rag City is still manufacturing these Jeans. Bought my wife two pairs and whenever she is wearing these she gets a lot of attention ! Peter (

I have a couple pair of the original ones from years ago and my husband purchased some more of these just recently. I think I have 8 pairs in all. I wear them skin tight and I get more attention than you could ever imagine whenever and wherever I wear them. My husband likes it when I wear them with heels and when I take two different colors and zip them together. For a woman in my 40's I still have the body of a twenty something and these jeans are the perfect way to show it off. However, my husband always insists that I do not go commando (aka no thong) as he is afraid that over strained zipper may suddenly spring open! Now, how about some other colors besides denim blue for these jeans? Terri(

Hello fellow zip around owners. I'm looking for size 15 or as close to it as I can find. I live in Reno Nevada, and twenty years ago we had a clothing store that carried Rag City Blues and the sizes she had was 0 to 15 in all the colors. Now after looking on R.C.B. web site they don't make the larger sizes any longer that I can find. So if you have any hidden in your closet that need a good home please email at Thanks!

I had a pair like the first pic, only in blue denim with tan trim. I had them for 5 years until they wore out. They were one of my favorite pairs of jeans. I wish they were still available.

Does anyone know what happened to RCB? All jeans on their site seem to be out of stock, and whatever is left seems to be a liquidation sale. Their site says that they will be back soon. Anyone know when?

ATTN, Chuck Miller. Thank you for making the jeans that heed me meet the man of my dreams. In these jeans I was a knock out. Met my hubby at 15. (1985) we have been together since. I always wondered the history of the jeans. I used to purchase mine from ONE store in town called Honeycombs. Which is no lo her around. KRISTEN: You said it right, the 80's rocked!!! Your comment rocked, it was like I was telling the story. In fact just saw Ozzy 3 months ago at the Shoreline and wore a pair of jeans I purchased from Stacey Crummet. (I must admit, I can still rock the RCB's) The new owner/manufacturer of RCB's. I have her email, and since the website is down I will email her to find out how to order more.

Hey, stumbled upon this. My father is Chuck Miller, the original owner of Rag City Blues, and the man behind all of the designs you ladies seem to love so much. I've been trying to convince him for a while to start making more of them, since I believe he has most of the patterns lying around somewhere. Maybe with your help I can convince him to make some more.

I absolutely loved my rag city blues, excepts the guy's use to call them "MY ZIP TO DO IT JEANS", they looked and hugged by bottom so perfectly. They were of course my all time favorite jeans, I sure hope I find another pair just like them. Start making these jeans again, every girl would buy them, because they were, Magic Jeans, guys acted like someone put a spell on them, when I wore them, SOOO HOT !

I have a pair of Ziparound Jeans for sale. Size 13/14, 32 waist, 32 length. Would post pics, but not allowed here. They will be going up on eBay, but would rather circumvent paying their fees. I have a 750+ 100% positive feedback.

Anyone selling a pair? I’ve been looking for AGES with no success. I’m driven mad by the desire to own a pair. I promise they’ll be going to a good home.

Maybe you can convince your father knowing that a pair of Veronica Beard button fly jeans go for 300.00! I wore these jeans often in the '70s and the lace-up front and back ones too. Chemin De Fer 29 Blue Lace Up Flared Denim PLEEEASE MAKE THEM AGAIN!! They were the coolest jean ever, I'm 60 and we still talk about them!

Miss Hippy, Tell your father he would bring back many, many, many smiles if he made the zip around again. Those jeans actually stopped traffic. My original partner in crime text me about half an hour ago asking what ever happened to our zip around jeans. I replied, “long gone” and I started searching for them on line. I’m 40 years older, a hundred pounds heavier but I would love another pair and I know “MOPIC” would also. Please father, please may we have more.

CORRECTION: Not Miss Hippy. Should be Andrew Miller. I guess I got too excited about the jeans.
