Absolutely loving the Southwestern-Inspired Cardigan, but $1025 USD???? http://www.ralphlauren.asia/en/men/rrl/new-stock/southwestern-inspired-cardigan-623277/646522?country=HK¤cy=HKD Looks like they don't ship to North America?
Found this thread when searching the topic - I'm thinking about picking up an unsanforized flat head jacket (type II - 6002) and doing the initial hot soak in black dye. To effectively overdye it myself before breaking it in. Any suggestions? Anyone done this before?
The waist on the two pairs you mentioned will stretch 1-2" after extended wear, so try to size for 34 or 34.5" raw measurements.As for the inseam, I agree with you. 34" raw will be too short after a wash.Better to go with longer (37") to begin with - you can always hem after the first wash if you don't like the length. Or just leave the length and stack - or cuff - like most folks do. Your call.
If those are a bit loose now, they'll be parachute pants in a month. The waist will stretch at least an inch. And will stretch out again after shrinking from washing.The 30 fit was on point - and didn't look tight at all imo.
