There's quite a lot of interesting stuff on the UK site actually - differs considerably from the US.
Edit: Another highlight - the Cowichan Zip Cardigan...

And, the Jackson Wool Jacket is awesome.

i saw the bottom 2 jackets in the catalog last week and the SA said they will be getting them, so i'm guessing that the computer nerds in the UK are quicker than the lazy Americans in posting photos haha

Since found on UK site and assuming 1330 was in British Pounds and not the Euro, after the conversion that jacket is almost $2400 US. "OUCH" that makes last years Gambler a bargain!

That UK price includes 20% VAT so probably under US$2000.
Still OUCH-worthy.

I just wanted to say thanks and give a hearty endorsement to Robert aka Dastig for help with my RRL needs. Somehow he both found me this shirt in the size I needed and was able to get me the Give in Style discount after the official dates of the sale.

Build relationships people, it works nod[1].gif

If I didn't already own this I would buy it. Nice opportunity for someone.

When I get home, I can measure my 32s and let you know how they measure up (granted, they're a bit stretched, etc.)

Appreciate the help and info my man.

UK site gets three diff colors for the slim fit chinos :/
Still want to know how these fit in comparison to officers, no response from RL about them.

Much like E.A.'s request above, I stumbled across these. They're marked 32/32 and have some extra room in the ankles as if they are a boot cut. Do the belt loops say anything special (like...women's? eh.gif ) or are they just a basic western thing? Actual color is a light chocolate. First pic is best color. Thanks in advance.

That belt loop has been used on other pants. I think the last I saw it on was the Bedford pants from the Deadwood collection, so a basic western thing seems about right. I don't know the particular pants you stumbled across, but I like them. Enjoy.

I don't know, I'm not that impressed by them. I really like the cut and have some officer chinos in other fabrics like ticking stripe but those are all thicker, more substantial. 
Compared with those these are rather thin and not as rigid as I had expected.
Any views from people who have experience wearing them in different weights?

The Spring 2011 Officer chinos from the Blake contest without end were a 10.5 oz. This was the Spring weight mind you, but they were still substantial. I also have the RRL officer chino in 11 oz, and that .5 oz makes them even more substantial, in a great heavy twill cotton. This season's 11.5 oz makes me really want to check those out because I would think that weight would be even more impressive.

Regular chinos, not the Officer version have typically weighed less, generally in the 8.5 oz range. I can't help but wonder if you didn't get a pair of regular chinos affixed with the tag of an Officer version. This might explain the discrepancy between the tag weight and the stamped weight on the pants.

PSA- These pants are awesome. They are like an updated and slimmed down version of the Charleston buckle backs from a couple of seasons ago. Basically a buckle back Officers chino, with a weight of 10.5-11 oz (pants are not stamped). The great improvement on this version is the use of posts instead of sewn on buttons. Anyone that had the officers chino from the Blake contest knows that the buttons were a pain because they just couldn't keep up with the wear and seemed likely to pop off at any time.

unfortunately the ones online that say 10.5oz are actually only 9.23oz. If you order them then you'll see!
post #12088 of 21954
All this weight discussion had me actually check the pair I bought during give in style. Surprisingly they are 10.5oz, when I thought they were 9.23 oz

oh really... i stand corrected. When i bought mine a month ago I asked the store to order them in for me to try on... both were 9.23oz.

Has anyone seen both of these to compare?
