That's my main concern right now I look a little ridiculous with it on and won't really get any wear out of it in LA

I tried one on at the last Soiffer Haskin sale. It was a double breasted, charcoal pinstripe. It was very nice - made in Italy by Caruso I believe so yes, fully canvassed. I was tempted to buy it but I would never wear a DB suit. It looked (and felt) a bit "costumey" too - kind of like I was on the set of Boardwalk Empire.

On another note, I just bought a charcoal suit by Polo. Made in Italy (Caruso again I believe) and it's amazing. Fully canvassed, wool / cashmere and very slim with narrow lapels. Really amazing quality. Got it for $350 reduced from $1700. Jacket fits beautifully considering it's off the rack, but will have to get the trousers hemmed. Also, the trousers have internal brace buttons, so it looks like I'll be investing in my 1st pair of braces soon icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I wish I could look like I belong on the set of Boardwalk Empire at all times.

Most likely the PRL suit is Corneliani, I haven't heard of Caruso doing anything other than RRL, RLPL, RLBL, and Rugby (for Ralph Lauren at least)

Yeah, it's the Black Label fit. Now I think I remember someone saying they are Black Label suits with different detailing.

Haha yeah - it's a cool show.

Is there a way of telling who (Caruso / Corneliani) made it - maybe from the interior labels? Just curious is all.

This is the thread to check. You can post the label and see if someone can identify it. Caruso and Corneliani are popular, so it's likely the answer is already in there somewhere, too.

That's awesome... With our RRL addiction I'm surprised nobody owns at least one suit haha.

I think this year I'm switching to RRL chinos and henleys. Last year I was in denim & indigo at full affect... I bought the brown ankle boot to get ready for the spring.. Gona be a comfortable season transition for me, can't wait.

I own a pair of these RRL Rigid Low Straight jeans and have been wearing them since this past summer without washing or soaking. I must have worn them over 50 times and I'm at a point where I feel that I should wash them to minimize crotch blow-out and because they're beginning to smell a little funky. I already froze them in a bag a few times to cut back the odor, but I'm ready to either soak them in the tub while wearing them, or wash them inside out in cold water with little detergent and then hang them to dry. I'd like some feedback with suggestions as to the best way to go about this, along with pros and cons. Your helpful feedback is much appreciated! smile.gif

Holy crap that sounds really gross. Wash your jeans jeans already! They are only jeans.

Thats not really helpful. Thanks anyhow.

post #13631 of 23129
Only 50 wears and they already smell that bad? What are you doing in them? I'm 4 months into a pair of slim rigids and that is probably 100+ wears...they still smell fine.

If they stink...wash them inside out and hang dry.

What are you missing? Do you want friends? Turn your jeans inside out and wash them already. They are not made of platinum.

I love people who think freezing their jeans will make the bacteria go away. Did you read that on a denim blog? Thawing them out and wearing them the smell will return immediately.

 

Also washing them won't prevent crotch blowouts, if you let your jeans sag and wear them too tight the friction and tension is primarily what causes the blowouts.

 

If you want to keep going and not washing try febreeze... or soak them.

I hang my denim of all makes in the bathroom when I shower. The steam seems to do a good enough job of keeping them fresh. Somewhat opposite concept to freezing them but its working for me.
