They'll probably stretch out so that they'll get about .75" looser. Mine were exactly the same. I was able to button them all the way up but it was a bit tight, though a few weeks and it was relaxed and comfortable. I like it this way...I'm sure you'll be fine

Also stretched in the thigh? That would be perfect.

So the question is what proper sizing is. I was able to button all the buttons (without holding my breath or anything), but the fit felt really snug, hugging the thighs and legs (not like the pictures posted by El Duderino, which look looser). I thought I wouldn't be able to sit down, but that was not really too bad, either. So snug, but not crazy tight.

So my question is whether this sounds like the right sizing to accommodate stretching. I'm not really sure where to draw the line on how tight denim should originally fit. I think their being rigid added to the feeling of tightness, and they will loosen up later.

I stupidly did not think to take a fit pic with my phone. Maybe I'll go back and do that later.

These were $220 in store. I guess I am willing to pay that to get a really good pair of denim that fits right. But really, I was won over by the cut - just looks really good. The rest of the denim was $325; I asked the SA why that was, and she did not know. She thought these were current season.

Anyway, thanks for your help.

I bought slim bootcuts (30x34) from sharwood a year ago (for $49--awesome! ) and at first I thought I made a mistake. I tried them on and while they were fairly loose around the waist they fit almost like tights from the crotch down. I could barely sit down in them and damn near couldn't pull them off my calves. But they became my favorite jeans because they stretch out wonderfully and after a few days fit slim but comfortably. If you like 'em, don't get too worried that you'll look like you're wearing womens' pants. By the by, you can get slim bootcuts on ebay or here for about $100, typically.

That sounds almost exactly like the way these fit. Good to know from you and King Leer that they work out well. I've been keeping an eye on here and ebay for the ones in my size and the rigid wash (32x34). Haven't seen any here. The problem on ebay (besides not seeing the ones I want) is being able to tell whether the sellers have measured correctly and are giving out the right information. Also, most of them are charging ridiculous prices. I'll keep my eye out, though.

Thanks for the clarification! Ordered a Ghurka from the Melrose store and it should be arriving any day now!

I got the name Gavin from the Melrose staff. He sounds fairly knowledgeable when I talked to him over the phone.

not an expert on the ID'ing, but those strike me as ladies jeans based on the tag--no length, just the waist size. could be wrong tho...

Umm, i don't disagree that the sizing can be a bit off, but wearing a belt with pants is not exactly
post #1376 of 21955
hey theres nothing wrong with wearing a belt. i got fucking sweet belts from rrl. i just think its weird that its soo loose at the waist but fits all through out.

I've never seen a Jackson Pollock RRL jean, and I don't know what it has to do with the painter, unless it was intended for something else.

So, I finally found a pair of the straight leg natural/ivory jeans in what should have been my size. I wanted something with a little more of a roomy fit. I feel like I have a lot of butt sag going on, but maybe I am too used to wearing jeans that are slimmer. ^I feel like they are crazy high rise. Of course the Ebay seller sucked at taking measurements. I'm loving the denim on these. It's hard to make out in the photo, but they are fairly slubby, with a lot of brown flecks.

I'm curious to hear what the experts say about the fit. These are supposed to be like 501s, right? I actually don't like the look of 501s that are too tight - it just looks funny. I think looser is better.

I was curious about this color. Do you think they're going to stretch and/or shrink the same as the indigo denim?
post #1380 of 21955
Actually, I would argue that the 501 has a slouchier fit than the RRL straight leg. The 501 also has a lower rise, more of a tilted waistband and a slightly narrower leg than the RRL jean. That said, the straight leg is my favorite RRL fit.
