post #16816 of 20946
I recently picked up some selvedge officer's chinos and deadstock road chinos, and am happy with both. It's been a struggle to find trousers, especially the officer's chinos, in 30x34, but both pairs have turned out to fit great. Both fit very similarly, but the deadstock road chinos have a higher waist. The details and denim are quite nice, although the outseam is a little goofy with the flap...

Just received the Limited Ed 1922 15oz Japanese buckle backs..They are a sight to see & even better than I imagined.  I actually like that they have the navy pocket stitching which I know most take off.  The only thing that surprised me is the thigh being slimmer than I expected.  I thought they were going to be more of a vintage cut?

Do the black low straights stretch? I got the same size as I always do but they barely button. Should I just size up or fight through the pain?

This also depends big time on what size you need.  I always end up missing items by trying to wait for further markdowns because I need 29s and smalls.

 

I would say very few items actually make it to 70% off on RL's website.

Can anyone comment on the leather quality on both?

 

And how does RRL fit? Is it slimmer than RL usually is?

 

Thanks!

Generally, yes it fits slimmer.

 

Some of those repro leathers fit more old-school though.  The black leather Cafe Racer mentioned above for example fit me pretty boxy in my usual size small.

Anybody have the slim-fit olive faded olives or the v-neck black indigo cardigan?

 

Thinking about pulling the trigger on those, would love to get some feedback if available.

Trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on the navy version of the sale piece or buy one of these (which don't appear to be on sale):

The Shaker in black is the way to go IMO.

Thanks for the suggestions on the sale strategy everyone.  Wound up picking up the Dixon Jacket in Large along with a  pair of the Yuma buckle-backs in 32X34.  They were the last ones so I figured I'd pounce on the things I liked for which there appeared limited quantity, and anything else I'm good with a wait-and-see approach.

But where?

post #16825 of 20946

Loving these right now but also was expecting them to be a bit more loose in the thigh area.  Either way they are staying with me,

 

Got the last pair in a tagged 34 waist & measures 36 exactly

looks good man. recently picked up the 9.23oz officer chino off ebay and the thighs are fairly tight as well - should loosen up. and the gianni boot:

Looking good Namor, love the trouser boot combo! Have they reduced the weight to 9oz now? looks like these are getting lighter by the year!
post #16828 of 20946
thanks farhad. the 9.23oz (red selvedge, slightly darker) is from a couple seasons ago, found on ebay. current chino available online is 10.5oz (selvedge, no line) and is significantly stiffer and feels course to the touch. wore the 9.23oz for a couple hours and theyve already loosened up comfortably. the 10.5 will need a couple days more

Nice! How's your other pair looking from that old contest? Would love to see how those are looking now as well.

I think I've washed mine once lol literally have been treating my officer chinos like a pair of raw denim lol
post #16830 of 20946
so I ordered like 15x pairs of RRL chinos in different cuts and sizes during this sale.

Conclusion: fabric on the slim chinos right now is pretty shitty. stretches a TON, like the selvedge chinos really. which is crazy. much prefer the regular officer chino with a taper below the knee.
