Wasn't there a suede bomber last summer ('12)? Pretty sure there was but I don't remember it having front chest pockets like that.

Ok, so I picked up two pairs of the rigid slim fits, one from silviob and one from polo.com. The inside tags as well as the leather patch were different, one was almost distressed suede with long fibres (silviob), the other had much shorter fibres. However, the most noticeable difference to me was the denim. The pair from silviob what lighter and much less stiff while the one from polo.com was heavy, stiff, and slubby, which is what I would typically associate with Japanese denim. Also the selvage on the polo pair has a darker red thread that is more spaced out when compared to the silviob pair. They both say Japanese denim on the pocket bag but I'm guessing they've changed producers?

I also picked up the Jackrabbit Red Chambray in medium which fits great. Having bought two pervious RRL work shirts I thought I would end up returning it due to the fit but I was pleasantly surprised. Do all the RRL Chambrays have a trimmer fit?

Along with the denim and chambray I picked up two jackets which did not fit me properly, too short and wide. Both fit very similar despite one being a small and the other a medium. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I also picked up a RRL peacoat on eBay for a really good price, love the quality. Too bad it's a large.

Which ones did you buy from polo.com? The website says all the slim fit rigids are made from American fabrics. Maybe they sent you an old one. Do they have back pocket embos?
post #15727 of 21193
On the site it says:

"For best results, wear 90 days without washing. Dry clean or wash inside out. 100% cotton. Made in the USA from imported fabrics."

I thought "imported fabrics" meant Japanese denim. No back pocket embossing, only the "RRL" on the coin pocket.

Has anyone picked up/seen the Lewis Patrol Chinos? Thoughts on fit and quality? Any actual pics?



RL fits in general are so hit and miss. Also website pics sometimes misrepresent the item, color, distressing, or little details are sometimes off, maybe they take pics of samples. Always paying for return shipping is so inconvenient.

Also, I have a NWOT Black Officer's Field Chino in 32x32 if anyone in Toronto is interested in trading/buying.

Hey,

 

I recently purchased my first pair of RRL denim in a black selvedge raw Slim Fit denim in a 30 (sized down 1, usually a 31 in most jeans). However, these are quite tight in the waist, I can barely get the top button up, I think I should leave it unbuttoned. Is that normal? I'm hoping they will stretch as much as Naked and Famous jeans. They fit perfectly through the legs, and somewhat on the thigh just a bit tight Do you guys think I should stick with these and hope they'll stretch atleast an inch? or should I return them for a 31 which is TTS?

 

Thanks

They aren't going to stretch much, go TTS for the black on blacks it's cut a lot slimmer than normal

I'm not sure, I think those are old stock. I was referring to these.

I see. I believe those are a different fit. I was talking about these.

Regardless, the two pairs I received were the same fit/wash/fabric origin with noticeably different denim. I found it interesting.

Edit: stu beat me to it.

Okay thanks! I'm just stuck between sizes cause I've read so many people size down atleast 1 or 2 in RRL jeans.

post #15735 of 21193

So are they keeping the Japanese denim another season(s) or is that old stock leftovers?

 

It's redundant to offer 2 Slim Fit Rigids simultaneously.
