Well, I was able to find some great RRLs after all; acquired several pairs in the last week, some cheaper than others. I have two questions, though: 1. The color for one pair was only available in a straight leg, which is a fit I'm not crazy about (I prefer slim boot or plain slim). Would it not be advisable for me to try to have a tailor taper them at the leg just a bit for a better fit? 2. I'm wondering if someone can break down the full care for RRL selvedge...

The brown they have at Fillmore is amazing. It's straight leg, though, which is a bummer (for my tastes, anyway), but the color is fantastic.

Also.... I found some RRL 28s on E-bay that I really like...however, the length is 34 when I'm usually 30. Now, I've sometimes bought them at 32 and had them tailored, no problem. However, will cutting the hem down from 34 to 30 make any difference in the fit because I'm taking a larger chunk out, or is this not really an issue? Thanks!

The brown was similar...
I've been shocked by how difficult it's been to find a 28 waist pair of slim fit RRL jeans...far less in a color I would want. There are a precious few on E-bay, but none in, say, the dark brown or olive. I stopped by the Ralph Lauren store in San Francisco listed on the first page of this thread (the store on Post, Crocker Galleria), they had no 28s (or 29s for that matter) and only had two generic pairs of the boot cut in the standard blue. Very little RRL,...
Hey guys, I already have the kind of peacoat that is usually discussed here - the warm, navy type for winter - and am very pleased with it. I wasn't really planning on having any other type of peacoat (no point, right?), until I saw the lightweight one below from French Connection. Really like the color, which is refreshing in contrast to the darker ones J. Crew is offering. Opinions?
Apparently, one can order Uniqlo and have it shipped over the phone even though they technically don't have an online store, correct? Two questions: - Would Uniqlo, which is a lower-end brand, have a very thin/lightweight sweater? - They have many varieties - would it be the cashmere, cotton, cotton-linen, etc? Thanks again. Any other suggestions??
Hi, Any pointers would be much appreciated, as I've exhausted many of my usual places. I'm looking for a V-neck sweater, but I'd like something lightweight....much thinner & more fitted than a woolly one meant for colder weather. I'd prefer something in black or light gray. I've looked at many of the standard places - J. Crew, Club Monaco, etc - but they don't have anything of this sort, more of the slightly thicker sweaters. My previous one, which has now...
