It makes sense, really. RLBL is cut for skinny people, so the demand for it in skinny people sizes would naturally be pretty high.

high, but still low demand and low quantity compared to the other sizes.

Or you can do mtm. Right now it is the spring trunk show. We waive the cutting fee (around 150-300 depending on the item). Black Label starts at 1750 for a 2 piece. Not too bad considering most rtw BL is 1600-2300 anyways.

Sorry if someone already commented on this (can't remember), but has anyone seen this in person? Thoughts?

That's about 2 years old.

I handled it,if I can recall. It was medium weight, itchy wool but very warm.

I think it runs a half size bigger than tagged size.

Thanks, guys. He does say in the ebay listing that it runs large, and I think he has it listed both under M and L.

I didn't mean black label I meant mainline Polo. It's odd because even in the latest catalog I got in the mail it doesn't list an size 36 for any of the blazers.

Perhaps you need to wear them harder. these were mine.

Nice job!

At what point is it worth having raw jeans repaired? I have some straight leg rigids I've been wearing for about 11 months. I've never washed them and they're only beginning to shows signs of breaking in. Except for the crotch, which looks like it's developing noticeable holes. I'm all about getting them distressed, but I don't want a crotch blow-out either. Any advice?

Those are sick, kudos.  But I personally don't think that you could have done that with the straight fit.  I'm going to get a pair of slims like yours, I'm sure they'll fade better because of the increased tension.

Did you buy those true to size?

It would definitely be harder with the Straights for sure. I have some Low Straights currently on the go and they are looking good as well.

And yes i bought them true to size. They did stretch out quite a lot.
