Just received these in the mail and was hoping someone could shed some light. Described as "RRL Cords", I noticed they had the Officer Cut which I hadn't seen before so I snagged them. Inspection shows that they're a gray overdye (true color is somewhere between the color shown in the pics), they are indeed Officer's, and they were bought from an outlet which had reduced them from the original price (of ?) to $220. Very thick, substantial material and totally awesome. I highly recommend them to others. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I bought a pair of those from Barney's about a year ago.
I have no other insight to add.
