Has anyone tried the Chambray Steamfitter Shirt? Look awesome!



Also, what the deal with the Medium Straight Denim? Significantly different from Low Straight?

Interesting looking Cafe Racer.

Kind of like the look of this Khaki Denim in Slim Fit too... Think they got the price right at $220?

Has anyone picked up the Naval Wool Shawl Overshirt? Any comments on the fit?

Another vote to get therm from me.

I agree, the sweatpants are great. Although in this instance, sizing down is probably a good idea.

I missed out on the pants from the Spring collection. Bummed about that. Did you size down in those as well?

Medium straight is a new fit which has the rise of straight leg with same overall fit as the Low Straight. Good for those who wear shirts tucked in. Also they are switching to Cone denim

How do the Buckle-Backs compare to the regular Straight Leg fit jeans? Size up, down, the same?

Everything about this jean looks to me like a Low Straight that has been mislabeled. The pocket stiching, the lack of back pocket rivets (that did exist on the Low Straights a few years ago), the double reinforced stiching on the fly attachment.

 

I am surprised though that they are using a lighter weight denim (12.5 oz) and switching another (non-Japanese) supplier. And by surprised I might somewhat disappointed...

Lower weight denim is only due to the fact these are for SS13. Not too thrilled about the switch to Cone either but they are supposed to be custom fabrics and not the same used by every other brand using Cone

Can someone explain what is so bad about Cone?

I have a pair of Rugby Cone denim, made in USA - North Carolina, I believe. They seem to be great, about a year of normal use and they seem to be great to me still. They are still Rigid, keeping a good shape, and some nice pine cones (which I enjoy) around the knees.


The pair of jeans in question: http://www.selectism.com/2010/08/20/rugby-slim-denim-with-necktie/

A nice little parcel arrived this afternoon at our office in Boston. The folks at Rugby sent over this package containing a limited edition pair of U.S.A. made selvedge slim denim with matching a (Italian made) necktie. The denim is produced domestically at “Cone Denim’s White Oak Plant, one of the oldest denim mills in the United States.” 100 pairs of the denim were produced and “rendered in ultra-dark indigo-wash.” The necktie comes in a mid width silk finish with a proper skull hit (the same hit is found on the matching patch on the denim. They toss in a “Rule of the Game” stylebook to remind us of how gents should be. Well done overall.

I did but I generally size down with all sweatpants and pajama bottoms.

There's nothing bad about Cone's denim, it's just that almost every "Americana" brand to pop up in the last 4 years is sourcing denim from them, mostly from their normal stock and not custom made fabrics despite what the descriptions may have you believe.

post #12885 of 20952

Nothing against Cone specifically either. But what I think makes RRL special is the combo of Japanese denim at the same level as the big boys plus classic American styling and manufacturing (in LA). I'm not hating on the Cone. Yet.
