Maiden voyage for RRL rigid chinos (bonus alden navy CXL wingtip boots). Double cuffing until I can put a hem in, which I guess will be month or so of sporadic wear

post #16322 of 21301
Just picked up 2 pairs of the limited edition slim fits.

The denim is remarkable. Loose, slubby Japanese woven similar to the last limited ed. buckle backs. These fit pretty much the same as regular slim fits. But a little more room in the thigh and a tad shorter in the top block. These seem to be the same cut as the "New Fit" from years ago. They will stretch more than others as the weave is looser. Amazing details. They appear to be natural indigo dyed as well but not sure about that.

At $ 300 a pop they're pretty expensive. Just so much better than the regular RRL stock jeans. I would recommend trying to find them.

wore the rigid officer chinos out with the tags still on because I wasn't 100% on the 36s over the 34s yet

went to pet a bermese/newfoundland and she drooled on the chinos

36s it is then lol8[1].gif

in addition to the 34s being 10.8oz v the 36s 10.5, looks like the weave on the 10.8oz is listed as 92x60, while the 10.5 at 127x57. meaningful diff? that to say the 36s are a finer weave?

Funny how much of a difference 0.3 oz can make. I still need to pick up my 9.23oz (100 x 50) Rigid Officer's Chino and compare them to my 10.8oz (92 x 60) which I've been wearing quite regularly.

lol8[1].gif dude, why didn't you just size down in the first place rather than tailoring a pair of chinos?

I really like my RRL officer's chinos, so I've been researching other selvedge chino options as I could see myself always having a pair or two on hand.

Pretty funny that these J Crew Wallace and Barnes chinos appear to be an exactly copy of the RRLs down to the 60 days without washing recommendation:

I like J Crew but they can be shameless sometimes

Seems like Jcrew has become Bizarro RRL. On the other hand they're just following trends. Practically everyone is doing slim selvedge chinos and White Oak jeans these days. Jcrew has really stepped it up a lot in recent seasons and the Womens stuff is pretty good. They still make $98 selvedge chambray workshirts which is a huge plus in my book. Some of their jeans and footwear are $500+. I would never spend that much on Jcrew's high end collabs when there is RRL, I wonder who buys all those expensive pieces and Chimala jeans, given Jcrew's affordable mall brand image.

Nice and a good slim fit also but I still prefer the RRL British officers chino I bought from the RRL shop in London. I can not wait to go to the RR shop in NYC in November! My wife is after a pair of good sitting slim jeans so we may also take a look at the J crew stuff but as they are similar prices I am better off just sticking with my very much loved RRL!
