TTS, but slim. I think if you're in the middle, probably safer to go up.

It looks like a stiff work fabric, but it's really a soft knit.

did you size up one or stick with your workshirt size? i remember most people size up on t shrits and polos cuz of the short sleeves etc.

got this off of the bay for 725 ... really nice. pricey but nice all the same. leather is soft and supple and very sturdy. surprisingly carries a lot (enough to fit a 15" mbp). this thing will last me forever. wish the back zipper access part was larger but its a very convenient way to get stuff quickly

I did not size up - stayed TTS. This one actually has room in the waist, even though it's still a trimmer fit. The shoulders seem right on. The other short sleeve button down - the striped one I would say is slim - the waist definitely tapers on that one.

Well done Mr Simpson! I also got both military polos and the green material is very impressive...I found fit to be TTS.

True dat. I was concerned about that exact point, too.

Otherwise looks like a great jacket, though, with the detachable railroad style buttons and otherwise a nice cloth, too.
 

Does anyone have experience with the size/fit of both the pants and the jacket. I guess I should be 32 (I'm a true waist 33) in the pants and a M or L  in the jacket.

 

And how do you like the wabash vest and jacket?

 

And does PRL generally reduce prices further?

Going to be in NYC tomorrow. I saw a couple of RRL shops when googling. Is there one that is preferred? Or both the exact same? If they are different does one cater to denim more than the other? I'd be looking for that one. Thx

Theyre all different and different sizes. I would suggest going to all of them (the Mansion included) but if you have to pick one go to West Broadway

Not sure who, but its stamped on the inside of the boot "Made In The USA" The leather feels so much nicer. Size up due to narrowness
post #10737 of 20052

Go to the one on West Broadway. It's the flagship and has the largest stock of both in-season and sale items.

if you're in a time crunch, def hit the west bway store, the flagship on prince st has some RRL and is within walking distance, as is the one on mott st.

I've never bought a piece from RRL before, but they seem to have the best denim shirts/chambrays for what I'm looking for.

Thinking of getting this Chambray as its been insanely hot and humid in the midwest. Comments on fit? I'm a medium in band of outsiders, between S/M in Gitman (small is pretty tight).

I'm thinking of grabbing a small but not sure.

245

Thanks

For reference I'm 5'10" almost 150 lbs. I take a small to medium depending on brand. For some reason I feel like RRL might run larger/more TTS, which is why I was leaning toward small.
