gonna take my herringbones in to get tailored. after buying and trying like 15 different chinos in different cuts, come to the conclusion that the regular british 40s chinos tapered from the knee down work best for me. the slim chino fabric is really shitty and stretches like crazy.

Also funny inside fabric is listed as:

My rigid officer chinos stretched a size with one day of wear

the herringbone fabric isn't quite as stretchy as the rigid, although there is some give to it. I went with a 31, a size down from my standard chino size. fit tight out of the box but have loosened up some.

I take 32 in the selvedge ones and denim I have a pair in 32 though 31 probably would have worked. I tried on a 32 pair in store and thighs / butt felt painted on and 33 was a little better. After a day of wear maybe the 32s would have been a little better but not sure how much stretching in thighs. Might just buy a 32 pair as well if I can find it as I really like the fabric. Or just let this stretch then take in waist and fix diaper butt

That smell is mildew feeding off your ballsweat. Putting them in the freezer is a myth, the cold temperature makes the bacteria dormant but the smell comes back as soon as they thaw out.

 

You should just wash them.

My cords came in yesterday, fit very well but a little more faded than i'd like. I think I'll hang on to it, versatile enough for anything.

Curious, how are the Armortred soles holding up for you?

i think they're bigger than the current lineup of twill officer chinos - those are real slim in the top block this season.

May be a myth... But it's working for me.. Doesn't smell and the fades are coming out pretty dope

Hey guys,

 

Just wondering how the RRL OCBDs fit? I'm starting to truly dislike buying shirts that I have to tailor... It's just another expense and hassle. In your experience are they slim and short enough (not talking super short or super slim) to avoid tailoring?

post #16857 of 20877

Have several, enjoy them a lot.. They are trim and are shorter then GV and also heavier. Out of all the RRL shirting may be my fav.

 

Have fun

I didn't know that's what they were. Historically they have been fine - now they are getting quite worn and smooth, so can be quite dangerous when wet. I slipped an fell on my butt the other day when I walked from the wet outdoors and into a highly polished terrazzo hallway. Luckily for me I didn't break my ass, and that no one was around to see me. I definitely need to get these resoled, but not too sure what to resole them to. Think I'll pay a visit to B Nelson. Any recommendations?

EDIT: I've always wondered who made these canyon boots for RRL. Anyone have an idea? It could play a part in my resoling decision...

I think they're poorly proportioned. They have a tiny collar, tiny cuffs, are boxy, and the former allure of selvedge gussets and inner placket is gone. The oxford cloth is unexceptional. I appreciate the shell buttons but the whole RRL OCBD pattern needs an overhaul.

If you plan on resoling with the same thing I believe they're Vibram Armortred 1010s, but the Amortreds don't seem to last very long though. Maybe you could do a leather / lug sole like the RW Beckmans.
