Nah, namor's right. Short version is lexol+obenauf's deepened the color a lot (probably needs another shot of lexol now). I detailed what I did in this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/286264/obenaufs-lp-on-an-rrl-leather-jacket

As for outfits, it's pretty versatile. You can go all out with the Americana (pretend-cowboy/railroad-worker/soldier) look (Red Wings, chambray, denim or RRL-type cargoes, etc), which I've done from time to time, but more often just it works just fine with the minimalist uniform (white v neck, denim, chucks). Goes well over shirt+sweater/tie, too, but all well-cut bombers do.

Nice jackets! If I didn't already have four leather jackets clogging up my closets I would consider it.

I rock the red chinos with white oxford shirts. Sometimes denim/chambray blue goes well.

Went by the Mansion in NY yesterday. Wanted to see this years Roper Jacket, not impressed. Didn't like what they did to the collar, was hoping for it to be similar to last years. I did see that $595 new charcoal cardigan, you think that'll be around for a sale?

Fine Gents:
Was hoping some kind peoples could give some advice.

I popped into the RL store yesterday to check out some chinos and lo and hebold they had one pair of RRL denim that had been returned. They were the slim fit rigids, in 34x32. I fell in love with them.

The fit was nice, but the 34 seemed more than just the normal vanity sized. I took them off and asked for a tape measure. When I measured them, they measured 36.

When I asked the 2 sales people if the denim was sanforized, they looked at me a bit odd.

Did some reading of this thread and it seems that the denim is indeed sanforized so I shouldn't expect any stretch.

My true waist is a 35, so I'm thinking of ordering the 33, which I would expect to be a 35 measured. Or would anyone recommend a 32, which I would guess to be a 34, and possibly stretch out to a 35?

Do these stretch?

Would appreciate any advice from those who know. Thank you.

I believe from what i have read from this thread and other RRL threads elsewhere on the web is that they stretch quite abit along the waist. Sizing is all over the place. Since you got to try them, i would say go by the fit. In your case, i would recommend getting them slightly tight to compensate for the stretching once you start wearing them. A belt would help to keep them from stretching out too much.

As for the others, is it true that the slim fit rigids would stretch out on the thigh after wear? My waist fits perfect, but the thigh area feels skintight.
