Not mine, just a progress thread I've been following.

I just got this shirt in a size Large - too big for me!

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.||B2||T0JKX0lEPTVjYTFhYjFlYTY1YTAyMTQwNTEwZTllNjhhMWZhYzA1MTFlODNmYjBmYzljfHxPUklHSU5BTF9FQkFZX1FVQUxJVFlfU0NPUkU9NHx8Q1JFQVRJT05fREFURT0zLzEvMTMgMTo1NSBQTQ==

Usually a couple of times a year iirc. Friends & family is one sale - cant remember when it is exactly.

For some reason I keep looking at the Slim-Fit Roper-Wash Denim. They seem awesome. Has anyone tried them on?




Oh, and the Roscoff Windbreaker look pretty sweet. Nice details.

I like that Roper-Wash denim. I think I have to stick to straight and low straight for fit, unfortunately.

I have them in a 32 waist. they are awesome. quite a bit more distressed than the web image suggests. fit seems fairly standard for a slim fit. they are quite rigid - definitely not the softest pair.

I am tempted by the jacket too. I want to know what the weight of it is, as I picked up the Nelson jacket from the fall navy collection, and it doesn't seem too different.

the whiskers are more established. The fading is more obvious. overall, the colour is lighter. they are fantastic though. totally different to any of the other rrl denim pants. If in doubt, I'd say for them.

The selection of straight leg models is lousy this season. There's only two online, and one of them, the bright sky, looks like an 80s wash.

Yeah, I think they are moving to heavy reliance on the slim straight. I guess the straight legs don't sell well. Selection does suck lately.

I've been tempted to stock up on ebay finds, as I sense this fit is going away, along with the Japanese denim.

RL, as a company, does a lot of trend analysis. That includes sales at their stores. If they see a certain fit is selling higher numbers, they'll push it. Probably won't get rid of straight legs altogether, though.

I sense this too, I believe they'll start making jeans in China eventually and eventually OE denim. Polo jeans come from China, Black Label from Tunisia or Turkey. Most of their bottoms are made in China that were once made in the USA. People don't want to pay $400 for a pair of RRL jeans and at 40-50% off they don't make enough profit. It's almost inevitable this will happen, once the label becomes more mainstream.

 

The raw/rinse jeans might stay based in the USA but made entirely of White Oak denims. They will probably release "limited edition" jeans that are made in the USA and of Japanese selvedge. Price will probably be somewhere in the $500-600 range and made in small batches of 50-100. Just my theories.

 

PRPS also switched production of jeans from Japan to China if that's indicative of anything. Their washes are still as good as anything I've ever seen so there is high hopes RRL's China made washes will still look great.
