Can't speak for W&H. My Unis chinos are amazing though, and definitely better quality than similar RRL. Construction and fit of Unis is spectacular assuming you like a slim fit.

There are some great deals on both the US and UK sites at the moment. On the UK side they have the regulation chinos in Olive at half price for some reason. Thought they were a stock item and I paid full price for a pair in store a couple of weeks back. Really loving the looser fit on them though.

Also noticed that they seem to be selling off Slim Fit rigid denim with a 32 inch inseam for some reason. The 34s are still full price but the 32s are down to £135. Had to double check at first as I thought it may have been the new slim straight in cone but I'm fairly certain it's the standard slim fit as it states that's it's made in the USA of imported fabrics.

There are some great shirts at decent prices, especially if you're a large (I am). I just pretend spent $600 in about 5mins. Now to decide if I want to/can afford to follow through on any.

why does the rrl site never seem to have many 33x30 denim?

Did you guys notice on ebay all the listings now show the amount of Watchers? Pretty awesome bit of info that will help resellers for sure.

Do the regulation chino and officer chino use the same fabric? Is one lighter weight or softer than the other?

Surprised this is new. Definitely makes sense.

thanks

Slim fits don't have too low of a rise. I actually found the rise better than the J Crew "484" chinos I have which have a ridiculously low rise.

As previously stated, and unless they've changed sizing, the 501 is significantly smaller than a RRL straight in the same size, in a 36 at least. The 501 has a lower rise, more taper and less thigh room. I need to get a 34 RRL straight, and I'm pretty certain they'll fit no problem. A 34 501, OTOH, would barely get over my ass. I would say that for a RRL straight in the same fit, buy one size down from your 501 size. That should be close enough. Obviously, I can't generalize across all sizes, AND my RRL straight are the old arcuates.
You definitely have to size down but I thought that was for every fit from RRL right? I size down two sizes on straight leg. Once sized down they are slimmer than 501's.

There is a flip side to that coin.  It could also help buyers ascertain how much interest is in an item which might give them a little more leverage when trying negotiate a price with with little to no interest.

I wear a Custom fit Large in PRL shirts. What size shirt should I get for RRL? I have tried on some sweaters from RRL and Medium is what I liked. Thanks.

What would you say RRL's quality is on par with then? Debating whether to cop a pair of their skinny chinos or just go with Unis.

I mean, based on these two posts alone, and common sense, quality is obviously slightly subjective.

Price for RRL items is less about quality of construction for me than quality of details. You simply don't see the attention to detail with a lot of the RRL stuff elsewhere (makes sense, given it's Ralph Lauren's baby).

That said, fit still trumps all, so great construction and details doesn't mean a thing if the fit isn't good (still default to RL polos because they fit me so well even with potentially better quality options).

Haven't owned any Unis pieces, but in my experience W+H quality is prob in the same ballpark as RRL stuff, just not as interesting in most cases.

It's all a trade off between fit, construction, details, and cost; just a matter of deciding what you care most about.

Thanks but I wear Large shirts and Medium sweaters in PRL. The neck is too small on medium PRL shirts for me.

If you wear medium sweaters in RRL then you're also a medium in shirts.
