post #14326 of 22055

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the slim fit is slim throughout and tapered at the leg opening.  With the slim straight being slim through out, but with slightly wider leg opening starting at the knee on the bottom.

My understanding was the slim-straight is a higher-rise low-straight. Does the slim-straight have more tapper than that?

This is correct. Slim st. was a new model introduced this spring. They are essential low sts. with a st leg rise.

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.

post #14332 of 22055
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):

and...

I'm interested 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.
