The rule is wear it the way you feel comfortable, the look can be pretty versatile. If you want to go bigger maybe 1/2 to 1 inch bigger in chest/shoulder of your measurements. Although nothing wrong with getting it spot on to your measurements, that's the way I prefer it. As a general rule the jacket should fall a little below the waist

I pulled out all my other RRL button downs to compare fits. I have a one of the slim Western shirts from a few years ago and a slim selvedge, and this is slimmer than both, except in the shoulders.

I'm having second thoughts and will see how I feel when I get the large. It's possible I return them both. For $320, as you say, I'm feeling like it needs to be perfect.

I'll report back.

Ha...glad to see you and the OP understood what I was trying to convey and that stature has nothing to do with it when opinion is coming from one person of an obvious static height  colgate.gif

I actually just lined the shirt up against a selvedge workshirt from this summer, and the tails are about 1" shorter, but the sides are even more - about 2" shorter.

It's an odd but beautiful shirt.

Anyone know...

I don't believe so. No evidence of that. So far. I have come across denim washes in fits that we're part of the season. I don't know where those came from or why. Maybe they were made for different markets but not sure. Or maybe they're just a lot older than I'm aware of.

I'm positive they don't unlike Polo. Regarding the cashmere i have 2 shawl collar cashmere sweaters from different seasons (about 2 years apart) and they are completely different weights. Its likely they adjust the weight for winter/spring collections.

I love his optimism on $195 for a pretty poor t-shirt.

I had scooped up a pair of white selvage RRL denim from the outlet.  They fit like a dream, but they were bootcut.  I had an alterationist taper them and get rid of the bootcut, but instead, she just made them highwater as hell.  I only paid $40 for them, but I'm straight up brokenhearted on this Valentine's Day.

Sorry, that comment was not directed at you but at a previous poster who I was too lazy to quote.

Can anyone speak to its quality and fit?

JTL-Dev.Inc.

Boots arrived yesterday and they are pretty damn awesome--especially for $200. Jeans and PL tie are getting returned though.

Question regarding RRL western shirts.  Some people have said not to pay retail.  Frankly, $250 is a lot for a shirt.  Where would one not pay retail besides eBay on occasion?  Does RRL send western shirts to the RL outlets?  There's one in Carlsbad, CA, which is south of my current location in Orange County.  Any help is appreciated!

This is a listing for some RRL jeans a few years old described as straight leg.  I see they have detailing that looks like the slim boot cuts.  However, because it is an older style, I am not sure - seller thinks they are straight and there is nothing on the inside pockets saying anything. Does anybody know about this?  Thanks in advance.
