post #11581 of 21982
See my post 11569. I have straight fits in raw and they have stretched a bit in the waist. I did not take a measurement on them before wearing but right now the size 32 straight's waist measures 17 inches. I do not wear them a lot because I do not like the rise so that 17 inch waist is with minimal wear. Again, I do not have a measurement from when I bought them a year and a half ago. If I had to guess I would say I've worn them between 12 and 20 times ranging from an hour to all day. I guess the take home message is: the raw denim stretches.

Nah, I'm just griping, obviously this guy is a douche. I don't know what it is about RRL that attracts this kind of behavior. I seriously don't see it with any other line. The ebay situation with RRL is really uniquely shitty.

Talking about these if I sound confusing

Any help/guidance on how I should size on these? Still debating on which one to get. Thanks for the help, as usual.

You're in SF, so your best bet is to swing by the Ralph Lauren store on Fillmore to try out your size. The raw or 1-wash will stretch a little, but only as much as your legs will stretch them, so I would say size down one from what feels comfortable in the store.

thanks for all the feedback. Haven't had a chance to visit the Fillmore store yet. The store associates at the LA RRL location told me otherwise after I insisted that the 'fashion' washes had stretched on me which is why I resorted here to get any other first hand knowledge. Granted, it may have just been that one associate who helped me but who knows. Been reading the measurements on Context's website also.

I feel it depends on who I interact with at an RL store (or any store for that matter) on whether or not they're trying to really help me or blow smoke up my ass to get commission $$$. I'll try to go this weekend and test my luck I'll get an associate who knows what they're talking about.

Looks like Blue Present is going through his relisting

Noticed a Rugby Skull Polo for 90 Dollars...wtf! Who in their right mind, it's 29.99-39.99 on sale, otherwise fullprice is $55, or Make Your Own for $59.50.

On another note, I see that shit happen with RRL way too often, it sells for a low price, buyer relists - sad thing is some people I'll message and offer them a higher price than what it closed for after I see them relist - one person claimed," I do it for the fun of the auction... "

PSA:

Don't be fooled by this, anyone.

Looks like its a regular Polo Ralph Lauren Leather Jacket (the kind from a Factory Store), with RRL Patches snapped on.

You can see the Pony logo on it and the Polo tags, not sure how seller thinks anyone would be fooled.

That eBay listing is messed up. You should report it if you haven't already. The seller must be an absolute crook! I particularly like the line, "Got to pay for kids private school so I'm having to sell off a big part of my collection". Twat! It looks like a shitty $10 jacket too - really grim.

My two cents:

All our denim stretches, whether it be the washed ones or the rigid/rinse/once wash. To defend the sales associate, in our internal product knowledge books they explain the denim in depth and state the prewashed denim shouldn't stretch as much as the rigid/rinse/once wash. The idea behind it being, the prewashed denim has already been washed and broken in and shouldn't stretch more.

However, I believe denim will stretch .5" to 1". Some might just stretch more than others.

Also, our denim is sanforized, so it shouldn't stretch or shrink as much as other denim that is not sanforized.

I think it comes down trying them on in person and figuring out what works best for your body. I've had countless people try on the exact same cut in the exact same size and them say one fit better than the other.

That being said, I've both gone true to size and sized down. You just have to go with what is most comfortable for your body.

Hi,

I'm just wondering why you bought a cheap RL Polo leather jacket, stuck a load of RRL patches on it, and are now trying to pass it off as a vintage (and expensive) RRL leather? It seems like very suspicious and manipulative behavior to me.

Him / her:
I bought this at an estate sale 3 months ago... I didn't add anything to the jacket.

Him / her continued...:
and by the way, if you know this jacket and don't like the patches that I guess the guy I bought it from then don't bid on it...

Me:
I'm not entirely sure what you were trying to say in your last garbled message. Rest assured however, that I have no intention of bidding on this item. I do hope that you either take the listing down or edit it so that it's no longer misleading though.

Him / her:
I bought this jacket at an estate sale and am posting it for $10 ... and your saying I'm trying to pull a fast one... your saying the jacket is not worth $10? you make me sick

Me:
Firstly, you know there's nothing "rare" about this jacket. You're trying to flog it off at a ridiculous price in a very shifty way. The only thing which might be construed as "rare" are the patches which you, or someone else, has sewn onto a crappy, probably outlet-bought leather jacket.

Secondly, the fact that you have it listed for $10 unimportant. When you use words like, "Rare Vintage RRL" and "Limited Edition $1200", you obviously know what RRL is and are exploiting the brand.

Believe me, it's not that I really care either way, I just wanted to know whether you were doing this maliciously, and from your responses it's clear that you are.

Oh, and your grammar literally makes me sick.

And it goes on...

Wow, reported the seller, but yeah, it is very clear that ebay user 072771 is just taking people's knowledge for granted. 072771 is clearly trying to pull a fast one, especially after you posting your convo

i have one and have been debating whether to keep or sell. it fits me a little big and was thinking of having it altered. is tailoring a denim jacket, esp. the roper jkt, wise?

if i do decide to sell, i will message you.
post #11594 of 21982
Thanks for all of your advice gents. I went to the RRL shop on West Broadway in NYC and tried on many models. The Low Straight ended up being my fave. I went TTS.

The 33 probably would have stretched in the waist over time to fit me, but I remembered the advice on the tightness of the thighs. The thighs were indeed tight and I didn't want to take any chances with that so I walked out with the 34.

Denny, the sales rep, was excellent. Polite, helpful, good listener to what I wanted.

Not crazy about that back pocket stitching but I guess I can live with it. Anyone ever take theirs out? I'm afraid it would leave ugly marks.
post #11595 of 21982
Sazon, I've thought about removing the stitching. My thought was that it might leave a cool "shadow" (can't think of a better word) where the stitching was.
