post #11881 of 21767
Does anyone have the black on blacks? I have the slim fits 1 wash in 31x32 and the waist stretched out to a little over 17" and the thighs are about 12". I have maybe 1.5" extra room in the waist and quarter to a half inch extra room in the thighs. Wondering if I should size down to 30 waist on these.

I take it they don't shrink in the wash?

One more thing..

In terms of sizing, how would you compare size 30 waist in Field Officer chinos vs same size in Twill Officer chinos?

cheers
post #11883 of 21767
SD1 in Twill Officer compared to Field Officer.

i.e. 29 vs 30 respectively.

You're welcome, cheers.

I'm kind of stuck in choosing between the RRL Wool Varsity jacket with the Indian head, or the officer chinos rigid...

What do you guys think I should get first, or better yet what do you think will sell faster ?

Grab that Wool Varsity Jacket. When that's gone there won't be any more. It's an heirloom piece.

Also, bags are included in the sale. Grab those as well.

I have the Washington Boot in tan suede with Cats Eye heels and soles and love them. Really, really comfortable. I'm not liking the dark oil tanned version. They look clunky. Thinking they might be made by Al's Attire but not sure. They sure look like his boots though.

+1

Btw, what's up with all the "polo black" officer chinos and spring creek denim flooding ebay? I thought icons never hit outlets?

Anyone know the vanity sizing for the spring creek 2 low straights? I used to think all RRL was tagged + 2" but two of my size 32 RRL jeans measured 35" and 36" when new and ideally I need a 34" pre-stretch. Seems a lot of sellers aren't lining up the front and back waistband when measuring so if anyone has a pair of these please let me know.

I just got a pair of black on blacks. I actually sized up from a 33 to a 34. I wear a 33 in every fit but I literally could not get the black on blacks in without sizing up. The thighs were way too tight and they went beyond "slim" for me. I actually tried on two pairs in the same size and same issue (so wasn't just random variability). no idea if that's helpful, just my experience.

At the end of the day though, you have to ask yourself if you'll truly be happy with or w/o the designer tag.

I also was served in the military and true military issue is just that and not intended to be fashion. I later left the military with hopes one day I could afford something better and IMO RRL does a good job at reinterpreting of bygone eras (military, woodsman, cowboy, hunter, worker) with that still a manly, yet modern slant.

Has anyone seen the indigo polka dot shirt in person?

http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13088125&cp=11588650.12138271&ab=viewall&view=all&parentPage=family

and can comment on how it compares from the jack rabbit workshirt from the Heartland collection a while back?

I was at Woodbury Commons yesterday. Got there just after they opened at 10:15am or so. There was an rack with several pairs of Black Icon RRL Officer Chinos (non-selvedge) so I bought 3 pairs. If anyone want's one I have W32, W33 and W36, all with a 34 inseam. I am happy to send some pics if anyone interested. Retailed for $185.

There were other things on the rack - 3 shirts which I almost bought but couldn't be bothered with in the end. 1 was a nice thick grey chambray in XL, and there were 2 striped dress shirts (from a couple of season back I think) in a size 16.5. There were also around 30 pairs of jeans - all massively faded and in low straight and slim boot. Had various sizes. I didn't buy any as they looked gross.

It was the first time I had ever seen RRL in an outlet though, so I was really quite excited haha.

If anyone is interested in a pair of the officer rigid chinos with some wear, let me know. Selling sz 32, purchased from Context last year.
