Any chance those are going to be available in Japanese denim?

The naming of the jeans is confusing then. I thought the low straights were the straight legs with a low(er) rise. And the slim straights would be the slim fits with less of a taper. Haha.

Can someone tell me the exact difference between Rinse/One-Wash because after all these years I still don't get it.

 

Used to think Rinse and One/Once-Wash were just interchangeable for the exact same thing - Raw denim put in a machine with water and then baked dry to give it a softer, slightly aged appearance.

so there are 5 basic fit now?

Straight (higher rise, straight leg)
Low-Straight (low rise, straight leg)
Slim-Straight (low straight with higher rise)
Slim (low straight but more tapered)
Slim boot (Slim but boot cut, or closer to low straight with a bootcut?)

They did away with straight at the beginning of the year

One wash are rigid ones literally washed one time and thats it, nothing else done to them.
Rinse ones have the works done to them, mutiple washes, aging, dye, etc

They still have Straight Leg - they just discontinued the Rigid one. They still have other washes.

I believe he's specifically referring to the two almost identical washes available on website right now (which I asked about a few pages back too):

I have low straight rinse from a while ago, it's still "rigid" on first wearing, I don't remember how long it take to break in. It also stretch quite a bit after wearing (not to the point you re-size, just comfortable). I think I asked the same question 2 years ago, but never got an definite answer...

Washed or soaked denim can still be very rigid after doing so, but it's not to the extent of an unwashed pair. The rigid and once-washed denim from RRL are basically the same, but you'll get slightly more contrast in your fades, and different fades with the rigids, since, well, they're slightly more rigid.

Which makes NO SENSE.  This was just an awful decision (keep the rigid, kill the one wash) but I know they say it is demand.

I was told by an employee that they are the slim fit (rather than a low straight) with a straight leg rise.  But that said, (1) I don't second guess you and (2) I tried them on and they did not seem that slim, supporting what you say.

Do you guys know if it's the same officer chino as the one they had in older season. The one I had had retail at $220, hard to believe RRL would actually "lower" the price over the years. My was 9.23oz, I believe this one is probably 8.5oz, but besides that what else is different?

Another related question, do I still have size down 2 on these (on the old one, my true waist was 30 and I bought 28). Seems like some of the guy who are selling the new ones on B&S are saying they're TTS since last year. I am trying to replace my old one (got black ink stain on it, and I can't get rid of it!!! )

Based on your description (cost of $220 and 9.23 ounce) and that you were asking questions in the Blake x RRL officer chino thread, I think the older officer chinos you are referring to our the selvedge officer chinos, which start as a darker brown, selvedge, and tend to fade like raw denim. The officer chinos you linked are not quite the same (the khaki is much lighter, I think the material is a bit lighter, and they are not selvedge).

From a sizing perspective, I typically size down 1 additional size for the selvedge chinos than I do for the other officer chinos.

These are the Officer Chino cut, but they are not the Selvedge. Just regular chino material in the officer cut.

This is the price they've been for the non-Selvedge. Selvedge was $220, as you say.

The triangle on the side of the front pockets is the indicator of officer chino cut. But doesn't tell you about the fabric.
