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.

 

 

RRL changed the rigid fabric a few seasons ago between 2 different versions of Japanese denim. What you have is probably these versions. I personally preferred the earlier fabric before they moved to the slightly heavier, slubbier version of the Japanese fabric. 

 

The new Cone Mills Rigid is slowly filtering through the stock system. I know the store in London has some sizes in Rigids in Cone, some in Japanese fabric. I guess it will take time to work through all the older Japanese stock. It will be interesting to see how the cone will wear after a few months wear.

That's weird, I bought my girl a pair of Raws and she's normally a 26 which is the size i bought her, but she wanted a 25 because of the waist & the way it made her butt look but the thighs were too tight lol.

Kept the 26 for her, the denim will adjust as the wear & tear will.

Here's some pics of the Lewis chinos for those who requested it, sorry no fit pics I don't have a full length mirror. Fabric isn't too heavy an has a nice texture to it.

This was mentioned earlier in this thread but got lost in the shuffle. But, does RRL still make the jeans in that oxblood red of a few years ago? Haven't seen it in some time.
TIA

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

The one you posted was slim fit straight which I believe is their new fit. The one stu posted was slim fit. The new model is confusing and I wish they never made it.

No but they do have a Maroon/deep burgundy corduroy pant that's pretty sick in a slim fit

Nice. Any out in the wild pics?

They have a pair of olive green rigid herringbone chinos in store....

We should do that fade challenge for some fun and post pics of the progression. Would be very dope to see the fits and turn out like the last Officer Chinos challenge

damn, all the sale items are gone from the website!!! Had two shirts in my cart I was going to pull the trigger on last night and i got lazy and today they're gone.

Anyone know how to find any of these sale items now??? Thanks.
post #15749 of 21462
^ I thought it was mentioned before that when the sale was over all unsold product is sent to some stores (Hamptons?) and then off to the outlets? If you could find the store then maybe you could find your shirts.

I think all the sales items from stores get sent to one store. And then they will send all of them to warehouse for website listings.

And when website listings are gone, it means outlet...
