post #11956 of 21983
Has anybody seen this seasons officer chino in store? The website lists them at 11.5oz and I ordered a pair that showed up today but the pocket bags are stamped as 10.5oz. I know 10.5oz was used in the past. Not sure if these are old stock or if the website is wrong. Emailed RL but not sure how long they'll be to respond and figured somebody here who has access to a RRL shop has maybe checked them out. Not a big deal, but I already have a pair in the 9oz range from last season and was pretty excited about the extra heavy fabric listed for this season.

I just bought a pair. Mine are stamped 9.23. Mine are from a store; are the web ones different?

I think that they're all considered the same selvedge chino, just different runs with varying fabric weights (9.23, 9.75, 10.5 etc.). For example, I noticed on ebay that the washed black officer chinos come in two weights, 7.93oz and 8.65oz.

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.

I always use the Tailoring Room in the LES. Awesome service and great prices. Only issue is that they can get backed up so its worth phoning to see how busy they are.

Nice. But hold on... It's an XXL... What are you going to have it altered to?!

I found them much roomier, yes.

I felt very constricted in the thigh in slim 34 while the waist was too big....but the low straight 34 was just perfect in the thigh and waist.

I use Wagner's Tailoring on Fulton street, but not sure if I would take a vintage piece to him. He does the alterations on all my pants, shirts and suits, but I don't really ask for anything too out of the ordinary.

haha, that was a google image... i got a L brand new with tags, the length will be fine based on the measurements, but it will be a little wide.

alright, thanks for you answer. tho I'm still under the impression I should go down one size...


do you guys buy your low straight's in the same size as your slims or do you go down one size?

can someone give me a quick breakdown between the one-wash slim fit vs. the raw slim fit. how much do i size down, how much shrinkage, how much stretch? thanks a lot

I size down from a 34 (slim) to a 33 (in low straights and straight legs).

They are the same denim, the one wash has just been washed and bake dried. I have the one wash size 31x32 and the waist stretched out to a little over 34. It started around 33". The thighs stretch out a little bit too but not that much, maybe half an inch.
