post #15556 of 23714

I have 2 pairs of slim fit and one pair of slim bootcut all are in different washes and all are 33 waist. I have noticed that the slim bootcut are noticeably tighter in the thighs. Is this the norm concerning Bootcut compared to slim fit or is just these particular washes.

The opposite is true for my Slim boots compared to my Slims. The bootcuts wash one have more thigh room. Although theyre at the tailor right now getting their bootcutness eliminated.

Remember every pair of these jeans is going to measure slightly different from one another so standards arent going to hold true to every pair. I have two pairs of Rigid Straights right now both with a 32 inseam, one measures 31.5 and the other 33. Waist measurements on the same sizes are off up to a half inch sometimes from each other

Anyone taking advantage of the online RRL sale?  extra 40% off, seems like decent prices on great basics.

anyone have thoughts about the sale and if it's much better than eBay or other sources?

There's no goddamn rhyme or reason to the sizing differences with RRL jeans. Think about all the variables - the washes, the finishes, the different denims, the different factories they might be made at, etc etc to ad nauseum. Basically you need to either try the jeans on or know your own waist and legs well enough to know the exact measurements you need for the fit you want.

I'm sympathetic to everyone buying off ebay but sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. This forum is mad boring seeing all these posts about "gosh, can you complete strangers tell me exactly what fit and cut I need?" No man, we can't. Sorry.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, are slim rigid and slim rinsed actually cut to different size patterns from each other??

Go to store or contact Dastig here, it's cheaper than online

My understanding was that for the rinsed, they just took the rigid and washed it.

Measure a pair of jeans that fit you well, compare measurements and problem solved. Not that hard to do
post #15563 of 23714
Right, but finding the measurements are near impossible. The fit guide on RRL is pretty much pointless (doesn't tell you what size it's based off, only gives you hen and rise numbers), calling RL they don't know anything about RRL, looking at other pairs only tells you what that particular pair measures, not what another wash or past season is.
The fact that there is no just straight up measurement table is insanely frustrating.

Thanks for the advice!

post #15565 of 23714
If you need sizing advice I would have thought calling a store (rather than asking strangers on a forum repeatedly), would be a more sensible option.

THEY NEED A RRL STORE IN SOUTH FL GOD DAMMIT!!! >.< . . . .censored.gifmad.gifrevolve.gifdeadhorse-a.gifalien.giflookaround.gif.....ok...ok....im done cool.gifrevolve.gif

Your right, but it never works out that way. Calling into the RL customer service they don't know anything about RRL. They usually forward questions to RRL and then you never hear back. Calling a RRL flagship (I've called Bleeker st and East Hamptons) and they can't be bothered. Dude at the Hamptons store just said "I dunno man, I'm not measuring anything".

post #15568 of 23714
Really? Surprising as whenever I call a store they're more than happy to provide measurements. I would call Bleeker before anywhere else - seems to have very competent staff. Alternatively, Dastig in Chicago has been very helpful for me in the past and will hunt down items. I'm sure that he would be more than happy to help if you contacted him.

They had a store in SoBe. It sucked. Nobody cared. Sales guys were horrible, they found them from the Diesel store they were clueless and arrogant and only cared about upselling and commissions.

 

Polo store went out of business along with the second floor filled with RRL. Bal Harbour shops still have a Polo store, they might carry some RRL. Never bothered inquiring about it. Call them up and let us know if they have any RRL.

That's awesome.

 

I get about 150 questions a week inquiring about measurements. They usually go something like this.

 

"Hi can I get the waist, rise, thigh, knee, hem measurement? Do these stretch over time? How much percentage do they shrink in the wash. I wear 32 in LVC, 31 in APC, 30 in Polo. I hope that makes sense.  How do these compare in fit? Are they made in the USA?  If they don't fit right can I get a full refund? Oh no? Then i'm gonna only offer you half because it's a huge risk on my part. Also can you price match another seller who has 2 pairs of pants and 3 feedback? He has them cheaper.  No why not? Why don't you take returns? The Polo store takes returns? What's that? Go buy it from the Polo store and pay full price? HA! You're an asshole.. you're not getting my money!"

 

Honestly if ebay allowed I would tell lots of people to just ''fuck off.''

 

Then there's this:

 

"I received the jeans from you today. Thank you for the quick shipping. However, you said they measure 15.5" but they actually measure 15.75" or 16" using the BIG method (http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=30&Itemid=41) Since you have given me wrong measurements I have no choice but to leave appropriate feedback if you do not give me a full refund along with return postage. If I don't hear from you within 5 minutes I will open a dispute. No on second thought I already opened a dispute. I want my money back and I want to keep the jeans, chalk it up to bad seller experience. You're a greedy vulture reseller, you can afford it. "
