I would think almost anything in the tan/brown family would work well. Black indies would probably look alright also, but I don't wear black shoes much. Going back and looking, if I didn't know the color of those chinos IRL, I'd swear they were brown also!

I have those AE Strand's in Walnut, basically your 'tan' color, and to clashy. So far Black seems safest, I just need to expand my footwear selection.

I'm not saying it was junk, but there's tons of American brand denim companies out there right now making okay stuff out of cone denim. I always liked RRL because there were doing something different and imo a higher level. I really hope this doesn't represent the new direction of their denim line. 

I have been sitting on a pair of RRL Low Straight Once Washed...debating on keeping them since I have the raws.

I love this Japanese denim. Guess I'll keep them if we can't expect the same going forward.

I have the 1 wash and haven't experienced any shrinkage in length. The rigid will shrink in length.

Hi. I think I know the answer, but just in case...

 

I got a pair of RRL Low Straights in Spring Creek 2 wash. The thing is that the fades in the butt area are like too much compared to the rest of the jean. I got before another pair which was too big for me (up for sale on eBay, BTW) and the fades in that area not nearly as extreme.

 

 

My question is, in those fades the indigo is gone and that's it? Or is it some kind of coating which could go away if I wash them? I've had some pairs of jeans in the past (not RRL, but Diesels, PRPS and the like) which had some product to make them look dirty/used and that went away after several washes.

 

I mean, look at the difference (it's more noticiable IRL), they are both Spring Creek 2 and brand new:

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Because of the wash process, no two jeans are the same. In my experience, those kinds of marks are mostly permanent. They will fade over time, but so will the rest of the jeans. When buying rinsed jeans of this nature, I always compare multiple pairs if my size is available to pick the best one. I think what you're pointing out looks fine, but realize that for RRL jeans none of them are identical.

I have the dark one from recent winter collection and find the hand tooling amazing.....it hold tons of stuff.

 

 If Ralph would ever offer a matching Ipad cover I would be all over that.

It was that notepad holder that gave me the idea. I may have a vintage sense of style but I would not hand write notes in a pad when I have a tablet...that is simply to antiquated a concept for me. mwink[1].gif
