It was an apparent poor seller for RRL's demographic

Won't the slim-straight be at least similar to the straight?

Yeah, having recently tried on a pair of 501s and owning the RRL raw straight in the same size, I really don't equate the two. The RRL is noticeably roomier everywhere. Maybe if you sized down one - a 34 straight might be eqivalent to a 36 501.

On the other hand, having recently tried on two Edwin Nashvilles (34 and 36), I can say that the Nashville (36) is practically identical to the RRL straight (36) that I have in just about every aspect of sizing. I'm on the hunt for a 34 straight raw or rinsed (don't really care)

This is all very helpful.  Thanks everybody.

 

I tried the slim straights in the store not too long ago.  First of all, the denim is Cone denim (U.S.) rather than the Japanese selvedge used in most other pairs.  Second, while the website says that these are 16 oz. weight denim jeans (which is a bit heavier than the normal 14.5 oz. I think they use on the other pairs), they felt very light and the guy in the store said they were only 12 oz.  Confusing.  I'm not really a slim fit jeans kind of guy (large thighs, large rear) and the Cone denim did not blow me away (esp. not at that weight), so I passed.

Interesting sweater on eBay in XL. It's vintage 90's and still has the original tags attached.

Yeah the straights are def roomier than a 501. I think the Slim Straight is narrower with a lower rise, but I havent tried them on to check on that. And pretty sure all the raw stuff is going to be Cone now so you dont really have much of a choice on that one

I have the straight leg they used to make, and I think RRL denim does soften up quicker than other raw denims on the market.  The whiskering around the crotch is pretty nice, but the combs on the back of the knee are pretty much non-existent.  I have the feeling that no matter how hard you wear your RRLs, the lack of starch in the denim is going to lend a more vintage, subtle look.  For better or for worse.  I think that is also why you don't see too many pictures of RRL fades after several months.  The contrast on mine is in no way as strong as APCs and N&F Indigo and Deep Indigo pairs I've worn.

No.  Why would you think you could?

Got my hands on some pretty amazing belts in sizes 34, 36 and 38. Also some accessories. Will post them in B&S later today or tomorrow.
post #13963 of 21431

We don't have VAT in the US, and there are no rules for refunding sales tax to foreigners. Are you having it sent to someone in the US who will forward to you? The tax will be determined by where they live and is not refundable.

Basically, you have to pay what it shows on the site.
