The waist will probably stretch like a bugger too.

Hmm can't go lower than 28. confused.gif

Then get the 28. Worst case is you'll have to get the waist taken in slightly. I'm contemplating those faded greys - they look pretty sweet.

Hi - Would appreciate any thoughts on the RRL chambray workshirt ($195).

I have the J. Crew chambray and am generally happy with the fit. Tags are still on it, so debating whether to keep or possibly replace with the RRL version.

(from what I can see, they're both made in China of Japanese selvage chambray.)

Is there a big difference in the quality of the two?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ebay

RRL Gambler Jacket reappearing on Ebay, size Small. Anyone seen these hitting the outlet? Style seems darker than the FW11 one

The $195 RRL chambray is not selvage, if that matters to you. The raw selvage one was $245 from last season.

The JCrew chambray feels like paper compared to the RRL. The indigo color on the RRL is also deeper and richer.

That's the FW11 one I'm sure. It's also the eBay account of a SF member called Stu00a. You should PM him if you're interested.

Haha, I kept that to myself, since I was slightly considering it in case I didn't end up getting a down jacket and chinos. I say you go for it. He is a great seller and highly recommended

The Jcrew one is pretty nice, and the buttons on that are MOP (on the season i bought it).

RRL fabric is slightly nicer (not much) and does not have MOP. They fit pretty much exactly the same. Construction on RRL is a bit better, (triple chain stitch vs. double chainstitch seams). The RRL is NOT selvedge, where as J.Crew is. WOudln't be worth the upgrade IMO. Good enuff.

Also bought my first pair of selvage twill officer chinos. I went TTS - I figure I'll get them tailored when the waist stretches, as I didn't want to size down in the thighs. I think this was asked, but I didn't see an answer: do they shrink in length? I'm not much for the rolled look and will likely get the length tailored.

 

will be interested to here how you go sizing the rigid twill selvage officer chinos TTS, i am close to your size and whilst i think i could get away with the tighter waist (and let them stretch out) i am more concerned with having enough room in the thigh.

 

i'll be interested to here how things go with them, so do report back to the thread re: stretch and shrink!

Just in case you didn't know, there was a competition on SF using the officer chinos. There's a lot of useful information in there.

Holy cow, isn't that above retail?! Oh well, maybe someone sees the value - they are hard to come by.

Great jacket. I love the lightweight and that you can just grab it and throw it on without too much thinking. Perfect for warmer climates.

These are not low rise, so you don't need room for the hips. But if you need thigh room, don't size down too much. So I'd say 29 if you are a true 31 waist. But it's only $8 for return shipping, so you could consider ordering both sizes (and if my math is correct, ordering both will bring your total over $185, so you'll get free shipping to you, which will offset return shipping).
EDIT: Just noticed they raised the free shipping threshold from $185 to $195.

Agreed. The officer chinos just get bigger and bigger the more you wear them - and be ready to have to tailor the back as it'll start to look like a diaper.
