The little store in North Park has very little RRL with that being the main reason I buy so much online or over the phone from Robert or Melrose.

I go to northpark mall... mind telling me the store name? or there is RL store? that I never noticed....?

There is a RL store in between Neimans and PF Changs. Barney's also has RRL but I have never bought anything there since the associates are very inattentive and cold.

It is rare in terms of % of outlets that get RRL. Its almost always previous season items, and a bunch of resellers usually go to buy them. I know Florida is a hot spot for it

Sounds like Japan. That or they thought you were going to steal something.

Thank you for the info!

I agree with you about the barney's...
it's a bit obvious they are super attentive to their "regular" customers, but...

anyway, thank you for the link, too... i sure will go check it out sometime this weekend!

ah.. got ya!

I have been to outlet in Allen (it's by dallas) before, and i don't think i have seen RRL, so I was curious when I read about people talking about finding RRL stuff at outlet store.

I've got a pair of RRL from ebay, and I wear them all the time during fall/winter.

I'm pretty sure they work on commission at Harry Rosen so they do it to everyone. It's really obnoxious when you are just there to browse. It's really obnoxious no matter what but its especially bad when you just want to look.

Interesting, those actually look selvedge to me. And they even look chain stitched, which I don't think I've seen on the black label jeans. I prefer the RRL black slim fits, but those do look solid.

This pair says straight.
it feels like straight slim, and quite thick/heavy.

it got little shine to it, so I guess... it's waxed/coated..

So, this is RL black line? and is selvedge, you think?

Black label has definitely been upping their denim game lately. I remember seeing something about them moving to being made in the US recently.

To nobopyon: Straight fit in Black Label is probably not the same as straight fit in RRL. Black Label's aesthetic is slim, urban cuts. Think trim suits, motorcycle jackets, etc... So it is going to be slimmer than the RRL straight, which is a true straight leg cut . I'm also not surprised that they are coated - probably resin. I've seen those before on Black Label.

RRL: think western style. Black Label: think New York City

And those definitely are Black Label jeans - although we'd already established that.

In short - not the same fit as RRL, but still very nice jeans and high quality. If you like how they fit, there is nothing to worry about.

+1 though if you paid over $80 or so it's probably a bit too much as I see them at Last Call NM all the time for $45-70 depending on current sale, though all the ones I see are Morocco / Tunisia...

Also those with the Nantucket Red chinos, do they fade anymore with wear or do they stay similar to the current state they are in new? Have a pair sitting in my closet for a long time and not sure if I want to keep or not. Would prefer it to not get any more distressed

Thank you for all the info!

I learned so much just by asking this pair of jeans, I'm very appreciate to all of you guys who answered me.
and I'm def. keeping this pair now... thanks to you guys! (but I still will go check out RRL store this weekend XD)

I have a few question that, on the website, black label of back label (belt loop) actually spell out "Ralph Lauren", and this pair is just "RL".

Is it because this is season old?

Do you know, if they also use japanese selvedge? or it's unkown where?
