post #11611 of 22059
The Walnut street store staff have some knowledge about RRL. AT KOP, Matt, the mens manager is very well versed in RRL. Also, he is a really nice guy. I do not like the Walnut St store. The manager (Liz?) is very pretentious. Marty is cool, he used to work security there and now works for Polo. He's decent. The rest of the crew there are hit and miss. I definitely recommend the KOP store, they do not carry a lot beyond Polo standards (ocbd, knits, sweaters, chinos) but they do have some RRL denim. I have ordered items from them before that were in stock at Walnut St and they have arrived very quickly. One time I wanted to buy a pair of shoes and Walnut St did not have my size. They checked on the system to order them and told me the size was sold out. I went to KOP to check, they were in stock in the system, ordered, and at my door in 3 days. Sorry for the digression, my main point is ask for Matt at KOP, he can help you with any RRL questions.

Yes but either of those stores you would have to order it as they don't carry it. I have had terrible service at KOP with some shoes that I had to return--very disappointing. I usually go to Walnut Street because of it.

Thanks Franky....considering whether to do it or not.

last time I was in Walnut and KOP, they had several sizes in all of the fits. I got to try on low straights from size 30 to 33 to see what worked best. Sorry to hear about your KOP experiences.

Really? A few months ago I was up there and I asked them about RRL and they said they were going to get some but they had none in stock. I have some pants coming in at BB so I may go upstairs and check them out when I go there.

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.

This was very helpful, thanks for the advice and insight. Going to use this when I go into the RL store.

I work for Ralph Lauren so I had our Taylor do it... I believe he did it with the seam ripper. I have 2 pair of Raws so I decided to have one diff from the other by taking out the stitching. Mine left NO marks at all

So, is there a consensus about if the raw stretch more than the once washed?

Do you mean a tailor or a man named Taylor? or a tailor names Taylor?

I'm pretty sure he means 'our Taylor' who is his man servant and is quite a tailor.

From my experience, I noticed that the raw (slim-fit) stretched in the waist slightly more than once-washed (slim-fit).
