The Official RRL Thread - Page 90

post #1336 of 20938
Just glanced through the thread. Yea so they are vanity sized.

Also, are there not any RRL online retailers; I have to call the stores for specific items or just visit a location correct?

No other online retailers that I know of. Best bet is to call a store or physically order one.
Not sure where you are located but if on the East Coast call the store in the Hamptons and ask for Jessie...she is awesome. Tell her Eric from Philly told you to call her.

does it sound plausible that a new pair of slim boot raws in 30x34 actually measure 34" in the waist?? I have found some severe sizing discrepencies with the slimboot but this seems like a bit much...

For instance I bought a pair of the distressed slim boot in 32x34 and the waist measured 36-36.25... which was way too big. I bought another pair of of 32x34, distressed and they measured 34" and fit great...

I have a pair of slim boots in 28x32, that measure 32 right now, and some slim fit's in the same size that measure 31

I've found the sizing is all over the place, even from pair to pair in the same tagged size, and especially between models. I've had slim fits in 32W, which fit well, tried slim bootcuts in 32W, which were way too tight. I finally found a pair of the straight leg natural denim, but got 33W based on the fits of the other models I've tried on. I think I definitely could have sized down to 32W, but I wanted to try something with a little more relaxed fit for summer. I'll see if I can put up a pic later today.

Can someone post comparison pics of the Officer chino in ghurka and khaki? TIA.

Yes that is plausible. I have a pair of 30x34 slim boot which have a 34" waist. That's the reason I don't bother with eBay anymore for RRL denim unless I'm familiar with the wash and know it's a recent model. With older models, the sizing is all over the place and the sellers can't measure waists properly.

Even a few posts back someone had asked about straight leg sizing and just today I bought a pair from a boutique which had different sizing compared to one I had bought and returned on eBay. The eBay pair were a washed pair tagged 32" and they were true to size, but the rest of the jeans fit insanely large and I felt like I was back in highschool wearing huge ass skater pants.

The straight leg I bought today were a washed pair of pink line selvedge tagged 30 waist, with an actual 32 waist. Both had the non-upside down levis arcuate.

Does anyone know how the sizing and/or fit of Rugby jeans compares to RRL? I have a pair of Rugby rigid vintage slims. If I were to move up to RRL, should I expect sizing to be similar?

Also, these are low and really slim in the leg. I'd like more legroom. Is my understanding of RRL correct as:

Straight leg - least slim (this is the one that is cut like 501?)
Slim Boot
Low Straight - most slim

If this is correct, then I'm guessing my Rugbys are kind of like the Low Straight up top, but with slimmer legs?

Thanks.

I have both the slim boots and the low straights and I think the slim boots are quite a bit slimmer.

Had some time to kill today so figured it might be helpful to have fit pics of the slim boot, low straight, and straight leg. All are tagged 30 with 32 actual waist except for the slim boot which measures around 33. You can click on them for larger size.

I think ghurka == khaki.
Head over to the RL store at Ala Moana. I remember there was a really helpful guy working there who knew quite about about RRL.
