oh and once you know what you like, you can always find slim boot on ebay for cheap, low straight somewhat for cheap, though raw slim fit never goes on ebay for cheap (at least not in my size when I was still searching for it back then)

If you taper the Slim Bootcut, how close in fit are they compared to the Slim Fit?

I have no ass and i'm I a skinny mofo but i prefer the slimfit.

 

Buy some chinos, but then again you get into the Officers/Regulation discussion......

I've done that once on the Wheat wash from a few years back. It worked really well. It's kind of up to you on how much you want to taper - I brought in my low straights and told the guy to match the leg opening. So I'd say it's a little wider than a slim fit would have been, the extreme effect of the flare is gone. It's probably one of my favorite pairs of jeans now because it's a more balanced fit for my build. In general, I find slim fit too tapered for my me because I have enormous calves..

Slimmer than slim fit. I have 3 pairs in slim fit. All in 32. and one in slim boot, in a 32. it's quite a bit tighter all over.

Hmm. I wear 29 in both Slim and Slim bootcut and the Bootcut ones have a little more room in them than the Slims (of which i only wear rigid). Even broken in the rigid doesnt have as much room in the waste/thighs as the bootcut ones.

While we're on the subject of slim bootcuts...

 

What's the difference between the Dark Rinse and the Once-Washed

Did your tailor taper it from the inseam? I want to taper a pair of slim bootcuts but want to keep the selvedge outseam. Not sure if tailoring it from the inseam would throw off the shape of the lower leg.

Does anybody know of a private sale going on at RRL?

My SA seems to not be helping me lately.

I purchased some low straights wore them about 5-10 times and the stitching in the pocket is already coming off, she said she'll talk to her manager, called her today and she said we would call back.

 

I need the Slim fit Khakis should I size up on them (Slim Fit Faded Khaki Denim)? Im a 32X20 Low Straight, I love the fit, but kind of too baggy. 

 

 

 

Please Somebody Respond :'(

I tailored from the inseam. That's obviously the only way to do it and not mess with the selvedge. I did it at denim doctors in LA who are terrific, if a bit pricey (I believe it cost me around $60, but it was a couple years ago). I don't notice anything being off about the shape of the leg. But I didn't extremely taper them - just did enough to remove the extreme bootcut flare. My experience was good and if I ever came across a pair of slim bootcuts in a wash I like, I'd do the same thing again.

The stitching that connects the pocket to the body of the jeans or just the pocket detailing? The detailing comes off eventually, in fact on some of the extremely distressed washes it's gone/fraying in certain parts. That's kind of part of the RRL "look." But if you're unhappy with it, I'm sure a SA will replace - they've always been good about service when it comes to those things.

 

No experience with Khakis.
