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.
Definitely check stores or call flag ship stores.They should have it, I've seen them previously.
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.
Perhaps you need to wear them harder. these were mine.
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.
