I would say "jorts" go below the knee and are baggy. These are jean shorts that likely fit similar to khaki shorts. I've seen it pulled off in NYC in recent summers, but it's not my style so I won't be partaking

Love that he just appears to be randomly lying in a patch of dirt in the corner of some park.  Fits perfectly.

Might not be denim but they sure look like they are denim, which is --- in my view (though I am generally biased against shorts --- not good.  I was in JCrew the other day and they had nice light indigo shirts with patterns, including a few that were kind of reminiscent of those on the star iron shirt.  Not bad and definitely cheaper.

 

Not to offend, but I find the "officers shorts" thing a bit silly.  What is next?  Officers swim trunks?  Officers slippers?  All right, all right, I'll get off it...

That made no sense --- nice light indigo SHORTS.

there's a button you can use to edit your posts, also see what i did there, instead of commenting on each post i multi-quoted, nice features to avoid 3 different successive separate posts

No need to feel offended...I just thought it was helpful, considering I see it happen so often (i probably have done it too), and its a good reminder to those who are new to the forum.

Also, one of the points of multi-quote is to avoid several separate posts, that way you can respond in one post to avoid clogging up the threads.

Just following up, there isn't any info in that tag to really help. Just so you know, the RN# is a Registed Identification Number, just about every garment has one on there, and RL has had that on their tag/printed on the garment since as far back as I can remember. He did mention that he never noticed Made in Macau items really float in until early 2000s, so its possible its from that time frame 2000-2005. But like everyone else said, kinda tough to figure out...you might as well email Doug himself, and even he might not remember.

I always wondered why there is no digital master library of all RL pieces, or even with other retail clothing companies. It would be neat to browse collections from previous seasons.

How do the sales work during the year? Do items get down low only once a year around holiday time?
post #13916 of 23138
Clearance sales twice a year. The spring/summer items will be cleared out toward the end of summer.
post #13917 of 23138
Other sales interlaced in between but they dont reach the big markdowns as the twice a year ones

F&F and the Pink Pony are twice a year ones everyone is referring to.

They did this short summer of 2007, here:

 

All the tags from that season had this cool tropical look with a palm tree:  

 

 

 

The name of the line was "Indigo Isle."  If it's the same fabric (which it looks like), t's definitely an indigo-dyed soft twill, not denim.  I had these, but eventually sold them on eBay because they were cut too baggy and wide in the leg.  IMO, the officer cut is much more masculine.  Still, it's a lot of look to pull off in a short.  You pretty much are limited to white t-shirt.

This jacket has the same pattern on the front and back as the item you've seen, although i prefer this particular style. I bought this off the RRL website Nov/December 2011. Hope that helps some. Best wishes
