In the meant time got me the Garment Dyed (Burgundy) Officer Chinos in 28x32, and a white plain Pique Henley.
Here's to hoping the 28 fits the way I plan on it to...

I just noticed on my new officer chinos that the waistband is alterable. So should be an easy job for a tailor and will look right.

Ah yes, one of the qualities of the officer chino is this, didn't think about it. Its construction partially made to allow easy alteration. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

kmdsimpson - what size did you go for in the rigid?

post #11945 of 21635
Yeah the Officer's Chinos are very alterable - save for the button fly area which is pretty finely constructed.

Anytime I've gotten the waist altered on cotton trousers, the old stitching lines look horrible. Anyone ever let these chinos OUT and have good results?

I've noticed a few of the RRL items are currently described as being made of "Shaker Wool". I can only imagine that this means wool made by Shakers in the USA?! Does anyone know if this "Shaker Wool" is particularly renowned for some reason and if so, what are it's qualities?

I went 32 x 34. The waist measures maybe a tad less than 34.5. Inseam is about 34.5. Thigh is 11.75; the thigh is why I can't go down a size.

NYC'ers, recommendations on a good tailor in the city? good work, reasonable price?

i scooped a vintage RL jacket, something that's been a grail of mine for a few years now. finally saw one brand new with tags and a decent price. i've heard the fitting is weird on this jacket, so i will probably have to take in the sides.

Uh, you can't post the word "grail" without pics!

question:
are the low straight's much roomier in the thighs than the slims? I find the slim's to fit great in the thighs but a bit too big in the waist - if I'm sizing down (from a 30 to a 29) the thighs are just too tight for my taste. will the low straights fit me better throughout? unfortunately i have no chance of trying them on myself atm...
