They are terrific, and the Sz 28/29 does exist, but a bit harder to come by especially after a sale... try to call a few stores, or Customer Service and see if they can help locate what you are looking for.
Thanks a lot, I'll do that. I'm very happy to hear they make my size since they're pretty much number one on my "to buy" list right now. Also glad to here that they're terrific.
How's the fit? I think I read somewhere they wear a bit like raw denim and will stretch a bit as they loosen up. Should I consider getting the 28 even if I might normally get a 29?

If you get the selvedge chinos, then yes it will stretch, if not then you might be fine with a 29.

I like the thighs and leg opening of the 28, but the waist was a tad bit tight on me (non-selvedge), so I went with a 29. Easily one of the best purchases I've made all year.

I've had the arms shortened on all my jackets by about half an inch to an inch. I haven't noticed any issues. I'm away from home at the moment but will take a look when I get back for you.

The officer chinos are generous in the waist so you usually have to size down from your regular size. I am a size 34 but in the officer chinos I am a size 33. Actually the OC waist in a 32 fits best for me but then they are a little snug in the thigh.

These look good...I don't see them as tight at all.

Not against the rules if its not in B&S, though a bit dubious to request it from someone you don't know. If someone puts out their cash to get someone something, "gift" would be a completely applicable way of repayment. If the SA wants to make a profit, then you'd need to add the 4%, but if its not through B&S, whatever should be fine.

I have the selvedge officer chinos in a 31, I'm usually a 33 in most stuff. Got mine from Context, cause even the RRL store on West Broadway didn't have my size.

Does the RL site have another price drop or no?

If so, when would that usually be?

Thanks guys!

The Gambler isnt included in the current sale as far as I know. I asked about it.

I just got a card in the mail today that things are going 60% off soon but it seems to imply only instore only? And doesnt say if RRL is included

I think the next sale is the RLBL/RLPL included one. So RLBL suiting should be included, and I think its probably not going to be 60% on those, but maybe 60% on the items from previous sales.

Does RRL make a lighter weight officer chino? I thought I remembered handling a pair when I was in Barneys once. I just picked up the Field Chinos in black and I like them but they are a very heavy weight cotton.
