Does anybody own the Regiment Ripstop Cargos in the Offier Fit and can comment on sizing?

I have some questions for you experts here:
  • Firstly, whom makes the shoes/boots for RRL? I see the Wingtips are crafted in England (C&J?) and the Chukkas are made in the USA.
  • Second, how do the shoes compare to the standard RL offerings - and sizing?
  • Lastly, what would be the top 3 must-buy's from RRL? (I hear the Officer Chinos are great!)


Thanks so much! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Some speculation about the longwings.

Thanks a bunch for the link to your post. What do you think of the quality if they were to be from Cheaney/Church's?

My favorite piece is a pair of rigid or one washed jeans. Pick whatever cut fits you best. I like the Straights or Low Straights.

The quality would be very good. The Ralph markup would be spectacular. If you're looking for calf, you'd be better off purchasing some longwings from Cheaney / Church's / Alden directly, without the RL markup. However, in a sale the RL could be a very good price indeed.

Just my $0.02.

1 x slim-fit rigid
1 x slim-fit once-washed
1 x slim-fit rinsed

All Japanese denims.

Thanks for your suggestion - yes I may have access to some good discounts coming up but... I'm unsure about sizing.

I can't find a size chart for these, do you know where I might find it? It seems like Context used to carry them...

slightly off topic, but do you still size down 2 in this one like the older ones (my old officer chino got black ink stain on it that I can't get rid off)? Are these a bit pre-distressed or it was just there for the photo effect. When I bought my old one new (28x32) it looked like it was pressed with a steam roller.

If you have a large calf, skip slim fit, go for low straight or straight if you like higher raise. I haven't bought any RRL in a long time, but it used to be I always size down 2 i.e. if I am true waist 30 I will buy 28. Looks like it's not always the case these days though...

Agree with what Hoit said.

I got a pair of the Cheaney RRL Bowery boots on sale for something like $450 last year. They're nice enough for that price but I honestly wouldn't pay much more for them.
Sizing is kind of funky on them too. It's a fairly high volume/wide last but also short.
I went Barrie last size in them. I have plenty of width but length is just barely enough.
The bulbous shape of the last also makes the Barrie look sleek in comparison.

Does anyone know if these guys are stockists in the UK or just outlet resellers?

They're an SF affiliate.

Ah yes, I was just under the impression RL doesn't allow their authorized resellers to post pictures/listings up on ebay.

 

Nice selection they have BTW.

Yeah they're great huh. Awesome photos. I think they're a brick&mortar somewhere in London Town. I guess the RL lawyering machine just hasn't caught up with them yet...
