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?

In what sense? I'm pretty sure it's the same denim and design, just different location of manufacture

Does anyone wear the cargos and how is the fit? Several at good $ on Ebay and I have never tried any on. I wear 33 in regulation and 34 in straight. Should I order some from online in both sizes just to try for fit?

So, I bought a new with tags tube t-shirt on eBay for $15. The seller left the original RRL tags on it along with the Goodwill tags (it cost him $3.99). I was surprised to see Goodwill selling NWT RRL stuffs - people should check it out.
