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.. 

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.

Right, my stitching on my Spring Creeks is almost completely gone and I like it that way, it gives them character. I agree that it's a part of the RRL look. You're supposed to wear the shit out of them. Then where the shit out of them some more.

Thanks Trimalchio. I'm only planning on hemming to a 7.5" leg opening so I guess it should be ok like yours.


Joserosalesz, I agree with the 2 posts above mine. I have a pair of clear blue wash jeans and the back pocket design was "worn" when I got it. It has frayed and unraveled more and more and now it is barely visible. It is intended, not a defect.

Can anybody comment on sizing for the Solid Oxford Sportshirts? I like the plain no logo-ness of it.  Any help finding it on the site?  I swear I tried looking...

If you're a medium custom-fit in Polo, you're probably a medium.  I for one cannot abide a $145 cotton oxford shirt made in China... and here you go:

Do the slim fits have the same rise as the slim bootcuts?

I have several Epaulet oxford cloth shirts and several RRL oxford cloth shirts. The fit of the Epaulet is much nicer and the fabric feels just as good.
