post #14956 of 23986

Looking for a little help. I tried a pair of the RRL rigid jeans (I think slim straight) and they fit pretty well but I have a question about sizing. The SA suggested I try the 32 X 30. The fit was perfect but that raised a question. I understand the need to size down in the waist as the denim will stretch out but when I questioned if I should size up in length to 32 X32 he said he wouldn't recommend it. He seemed to be saying they would stretch in length as well and as long as I washed them by soaking them in the tub and drip drying the length will remain perfect. I need to add I told him I was looking for a nice "clean fitting" pair of denim to dress up (which was why he recommended them in the first place) and was not interested in stacking or anything of that nature. These will be worn mostly with shoes/boots for "grown up" events.

 

Question is, is his info accurate? Common sense tells me they will stretch out but lengthwise...?

Jeans never stretch out lengthwise unless you actually pull on the legs when they're wet. Since they're sanforized you won't get much shrinkage in length either. Sounds to me like the SA thought the 30 inseam looked better on you than the 32.

A new batch of Limited Edition buckle backs just were listed. Anyone who missed out on the last Boss model should pick these up. They seem to have the same fit and denim as the last batch with a few more modern details. They look amazing in person. Highly recommended.

Have you seen them in real life? The denim looks a bit different from the pics. Nice pair, though, definitely.

I have. The weave looks to be the same. Maybe not as slubby with a deeper indigo color. It looks to be natural dyed as well.

This line is every bit as good as the Japanese high end brands. The quality and attention to detail is really impressive. And they fit well. Not at all baggy like the early 20th c. repros.

I'll be surprised if they are the same denim. While I never got to handle the Boss, the denim was described as being very slubby.  The new ones, on the other hand, feel very smooth and soft.

I tried on the first gen yesterday. The cut, while not baggy, is certainly relaxed by modern standards, and the high rise and 9" hem (on a size 30) are not going to suit everyone. Having said that, the details and denim are great.

Interesting. I'm wondering where they got the denim from. I find the first one very similar to Oni denim.

And fit of the newer one is basically the same as the first one?

Yeah. I have it in a medium. The fit seems typical of a genuine hand knit, in that it's a bit unusual compared to standard knitwear.

My medium fit wide on the shoulders, high on the arms, slim through the chest, short in length, and roomy round the waist.

The knit is loose; where it's tight it gives.

It's a Mitsui fabric (Japan).

They're not the same denim as the Boss Jean but still very nice.

Mitsui? The Sogo Shosha (Trading Company)?

Do they also mill denim fabric?

 

And is the fabric of the newer ones smooth or slubby?

post #14969 of 23986

And is anyone familiar with the "candle stick" jeans by RRL?

Apparently they were made in the same slubby denim as the Boss jeans.

I have it in small and its perfect fit for me, which is to say its cut different than other RRL sweaters as said above. Im 5'6 and it comes down to my waist instead of hanging over my ass like almost everything else. Snug fit in the chest but not too snug (only because i havent worn it enough to stretch the hand knit). Arms are tight, again because i havent worn it much. Its def a piece that woudl stretch. One of my favorite sweaters
