Any ideas when we'll see the next round of markdowns? 
Thanks for the feedback, dude. Is it super rigid? Trying to decide between Dawson Denim's neppy Japanese chore jacket and RRL's.
Anyone see/handle this in person?
Not much experience with Mike Amiri denim, but I'd check out RRL if you're looking for nicely distressed (Japanese) jeans. Much cheaper than Mike Amiri (especially when they go on sale - could be purchased for $110 - $200), the quality is superb, and they have a variety of fits to choose from. Hope that helps. 
I have a brand new pair of Red Wing Iron Rangers Hawthorne Muleskinners in size 8, if anyone is interested. Feel free to shoot me a holler. Happy Holidays, folks. 
I wouldn't say there's a "big" difference, but there certainly is one. In my experience, Slim Narrows are slimmer below the knee and have a smaller leg opening. Hope that helps. 
Anyone know where I might be able to get the sleeves of my RRL jean jacket hemmed? I live in NYC, but I'm also open to using an online service that comes highly recommended. 
Picked up the Indigo Cotton Sport Coat online in a medium, however, it doesn't fit. Paid $285 (includes shipping and NYC sales tax), and willing to pass it along at cost to anyone interested. Feel free to shoot me a holler if you have questions.    http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=99309766&cp=11588650.62131416&ab=ln_men_cs_tailoredjackets&parentPage=family  
Ralph closed a few RRL stores within the last two years because, as I understand it, rent was too high and sales weren't quite justifying keeping the locations open. Now they're in Williamsburg, BK, an area that continues to gentrify and attract many young, well-to-do, fashion-conscious folks. Not sure what kind of numbers they're doing at that location, but I imagine it'll only improve as the area continues to change. And to echo what many of you already have said, I hope...
A very dear friend of mine who designs for the company informed me that it has less to do with management and inventory, and everything to do the fact that people just aren't spending money like they used to, leading to lackluster sales for most if not all divisions of RL. From what I understand, RRL will continue to exist, despite barely breaking even.
