Correct. That style is oooooollllllldddd. No real hope of finding out when though.

Who cares.

 

Lets talk about Jorts... or sweatpants.

Is it actually a matching waistcoat? It's hard to tell from the crappy pics. Also I would have thought that a 40R would go with W32. Will be a very well constructed Italian made suit. Jacket has no vent though so keep that in mind. Maybe 1940's styling with its seemingly wide (but nice) lapels?

Okay, I see what you mean. Just noticed some other tags and the differentiation.

Looks like late 20s, early 30s to me, but my eye for distinction between prohibition era and post prohibition era suiting is wane

The line was only around from 1993-1998 then it went away until 2001 when it was re-launched

Yeah that's what I meant (1993 - 1998). I always get the dates of that confused.

Terribly cool, and I had no idea about that time frame, learn something new every day.

I'm kind of hung up on the fact they no longer make the straight cut raw/rigid jeans.  Since they're gone (one wash just isn't the same to me), does anybody know what - if any - style that cut was based on?  Some model of Levis, maybe?  Many thanks.

Isn't there currently a rigid, straight leg buckle-back available on the website?

You are correct.  But buckle-backs are not for me and I'm not about to get them and see if I can have it removed.  The denim is beautiful, though.

Buckleback is easy to remove. I have done it on my Slim Fit ones from last year.

 

Pretty sure their Straight Leg is based on 501s.

These are straight, raw, and no buckle: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=17408786&prodFindSrc=cart&sProdEvar=Shopping+Bag

Thanks for that.  I guess I could go that route, though paying $300 instead of $240 (assuming no sale) apparently for the buckle-back, only to then pay more to have it removed by somebody who knows what they are doing, kind of just makes me want to find another option.  Plus I am not quite sure that those buckle-backs are the very same fit -- I think they may be slightly more relaxed and/or have a slightly higher rise.  But maybe not.  Anyway, appreciate it.
