Anybody else have this problem with their low straights where the waist is loose but the legs fit alright? Not sure how it would work with the waistband construction, but has anyone had the waist tailored?

I haven't had that specific problem. But I have noticed that the fit on the low straights is wildly inconsistent, or they change it up somewhat often. I have a pair of Spring Creek wash from fall 2010 that is somewhat wider below the knee, and then a pair of Tobacco wash from fall 2011 that tapers a lot, almost as much as a slim, but not quite. It's still one of my favorite cuts but I've experienced a lot of variation across seasons/washes.

Has anybody purchased any new Fall gear yet?

So far the only thing I copped was the Crosby Chinos.

These pants are insane. The Japanese Cotton Moleskin is so soft and comfy. They feel like sweatpants. Highly recommended!!!

this is pretty great - where is it available for purchase?

Yeah, my older rinsed pair is smaller in the waist yet roomier in the thigh compared to my newer pre-washed low straights even though they're tagged the same size. The new ones are too loose in the waist, but fine with a belt. Just afraid they'll stretch out even more in which case they'd be falling off.

I've had that same experience across different fits, especially the straight leg. I've never had jeans altered in the waist, though I've been tempted to do it with a pair that I mistakenly sized up and is now too big. I've talked to the guys at denim doctors in LA about the process. basically what they do is detach the waistband completely, cut it right behind the center belt loop, and also take in the seat so it's all proportional. The only thing to be concerned about is that you don't take in so much that the back pockets get too close together.

 

curious if anyone else has done this...

I'm going to ask my tailor about this. I guess if the new seam is hidden behind the belt loop it wouldn't be noticeable at all, though it might be a weak spot.

Not really I'm working on a pair of low straights... I'm usually a 33 so I sized to a 32 and they fit perfect.... But I soaked them the day I bought them.

Have you washed or soaked them at all yet?

So if I wear a 29-30 waist in Rugby/PRL, what size in RRL should I be buying?

Does anybody have an active 10% code that they would be willing to share?

Thx in advance.

They look good. Any measurements? TTS or did you size down?

I don't believe they are currently doing them, hopefully they will again later. The last 2 orders I did in July, after completing the survey it only gave me a chance to win a daily $25 gift certificate....no code.

Anybody here ever had a cowichan sweater? I just got a pretty good deal on last seasons RRL war eagle vest off Ebay and wondered what other owners thought.
