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

anyone know what year/season this suede bomber is from? any other info would be great too. thanks!
That jackets from the 2010 AW Alaska concept. It was called the Juneau Suede Bomber - retailed in Europe for €1200
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.
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.
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
