post #16846 of 23384
What did you guys think of the A-2 that came out last year? How does it compare to other brands? It wasn't something I was interested in at the time but find myself really wanting an A-2 just now and there are quite a few on ebay. Any sizing advice from those that tried the RRL one on would be appreciated. Normally I'm a L but there's an XL up at the moment for a bit of steal compared to the others.

Thanks

It was the first item to go during the sale last year.  I tried on both the L and the XL and went with the XL  and I'm normally a Large when it comes to outerwear.  I found the sleeves to be very short with L  and far too fitted up top.

I hate inside white plackets with a passion. Can they be removed on the RRL oxfords by simple destitching or will doing so reveal an inside placket where the oxford cloth isn't fully there?

I recieved the RRL slim straight rigids, says finest american denim... thats what i expected to get. which has japanese denim?
post #16851 of 23384

Slim Straight Helm, says "Imported Fabric" on site.... Thought I would take a shot.. Was told by SA that RRL were no longer going to be using Japanese denim this season on. The others that I have are Japanese fabric.

Haven't decide if I will keep or send back, am deep in RRL anyway and may be time to move on.

Is the Shaker in black only available in-store?

Picked up another pair of Slim-Fit Rigids. If they aren't Japanese Denim they'll be going back with a FU note.

Also for those interested 10.8oz no line selvedge on the left - 9.23oz red selvedge on the right

Cheers, sounds like the XL will work. How was the length on the XL? Does it it hit right on the waist or between the waist and hips? I tried on an Eastman Leathers A-2 this afternoon and it was gorgeous but I may need to go MTO and get a long due to the length. I'm just under 6" as a reference. Might just get the Eastman to be honest as I really liked the Burgundy cuffs and hems but the price on the RRL one is really tempting.

It hits between waist and hips on me.  So being just under 6' you should be fine.  I hope this helps.

I called and bitched at them for their mistake and they gave me a 20 dollar gift cert. you should do the same.

 

Yeah just got my buckle-backs in on Saturday, and the website definitely lists 'Made in the USA from imported fabrics'.  The tag on the interior of the jeans clearly notes that they are Made in China.  Kind of a surprise as I was under the assumption that all RRL jeans were Made in the US, but I guess not.

 

Quality and Fit is fantastic so they are staying but seriously it is disturbing how many of their descriptions wind up containing inaccurate information.

^ Interesting, I didn't realize they were now making their denim in China. In the past they used Japanese fabric and made in the US.

Hopefully they will keep doing the Japanese stuff for special makeups and limited editions. My slim fit slates are 14oz Japanese, made in the US and badass.

Which buckle backs are the Chinese ones? I bought a few in the last few years and they all say Made In USA of imported fabrics. There is no mention of China on any tags, all the tags say USA.
