Slim Straights are back?

 

They made them about 5 years ago as a womens cut, I still have 2 or 3 pairs laying around somewhere. Obviously these new ones probably have a much higher rise and looser seat/thigh.

Lots of Bowery boots..

Personally speaking I think the Bowery boots with the brogue cap toe are one of the best looking boots around.. Iv probably looked at RRL CLOTHINGS eBay store a 1000 times just for those. Unfortunately my wife would divorce me if I was to ever pull the trigger on a pair.

Iv been toying with grabbing the Viberg service boots for a lil while. What are the construction like for RRL boots? I ask because iv bought yves st laurant and Dolce Gabanna shoes which had a great look but made like a pair of Aldo shoes.

The first couple of Bowerys were made by Julian Boots in L.A. - but they current crop are made in England.

I thought all RL shoes made in England are made by Crockett and Jones?

Yeah, they're made by Cheaney.

$800 is way too much for them.
They were on sale for around $450 when I bought mine last year.
They're nice enough for that price but that last is kind of odd. Very wide/high volume but kind of short.
It kind of reminds me of Tricker's 4444 only shorter.

That explains a lot. I have a pair that I thrifted about a year ago and the rise is shockingly low. The fit in the seat/thigh is very similar to my slim fits with a wider calf and 8" leg opening.

No, some are EG, some C&J, and some Cheaney (But I think that's limited to RRL for now)

Yeah, I was told by one of the guys in store that the Bowery's were made by Cheaney.

How does this seller have so many of them? Where they on sale on the website or hit the outlets? In years past, it was hard to find previous versions at retail.

The bowerys were on sale in store and there was a ton of stock now that it's a bigger shoemaker making them but as zippyh said fits a bit weird and I wasn't too impressed by quality / build

I have about 10 pairs myself. They were on sale down to about $380 at their lowest in store and all disappeared as soon as they went on sale.

They are Cheaney made. I had a pair of factory 2nds that had Cheaney insoles instead of the RRL ones since they never made it to RRL.

Anyone looking to get a pair should size down half a size from their normal size. (7.5 for me when im normally an 8)

As for your question about the rise on low straights vs slim - the slim fit is a slightly lower rise. 

Maybe I'm wrong, but in looking more at these, I suspect they're actually Low Straights that have been mislabeled. They've done this before, only to correct it later. All the new seasonal styles adhere to their existing fits (straight, low straight, slim, slim bootcut) and I can't imagine them coming up with a completely different cut but keeping the details the same (in this case as the low straights). Like I said, maybe I'm wrong but wouldn't be surprised to see them change the description soon. 

 

As for the 16 oz American denim, I'm very curious to see what that feels like.

$400 is well worth a purchase but at $800 to over $1000 I'll just keep looking at them. I need to start taking trips to the stores and outlets to find some of these deals. I have developed this obsession for RRL of late. I love how a single piece can carry a look. I use to look at their prices and think no way but now that iv got into Japanese denim the price seems reasonable.
