Anyone out there know anything about these jeans? I cant seem to find them on any other site. Are they exclusive to unionmade? Also they say slim boot but the tag itself says slim..anyone?

Scored a used pair of black slims for $90 on ebay.  I've been wanting a pair for a while and they should be the perfect size.  Hope it works out.

Trying to locate another pair of the new denim slim fits in 31/32. RL keeps on sending the old style...

You actually are looking for the Cone denim version?

Not sure if this has been posted, but interesting article about Polo Country, the brand precursor to RRL

"Old-time rocking chairs ($350 to $1,000)

Twig brooms ($85)

Rolls of mattress ticking, stone-washed denim and buffalo-check cotton ($35 to $55 a yard)

Flannel shirts ($45 to $97)

Authentic late-19th-century quilts ($575 to $825)

Hooked rugs ($350 to $1,200)

Old postcards ($2.50 each)

New socks ($9 to $16 a pair)

Shearling-lined slippers (about $100 a pair)

Sweaters in American Indian-inspired patterns ($405)

Weather vanes ($425 to $1,200)

Birdhouses ($325 to $550)

No, this isn’t a listing of prices from the latest Brooklyn Flea. These figures actually come from a 1988 New York Times article on the long forgotten “Polo Country Store” which once occupied a corner on the fourth floor of Ralph Lauren’s Rhinelander Mansion (although the article doesn’t use this name) at Madison and 72nd in New York. While Ralph might not have any interest in creating a public archive (something I’ve never been able to understand), the New York Times fortunately does, and it’s there that I came across this incredible article, which quite frankly tells more about the Polo Country brand then I’ve ever read before. Aside from the prices (which really don’t seem to have changed that much over the past two and a half decades, I mean some sweaters still do hover around the $400 mark, although you could definitely tack a 1 in front of those flannel shirt prices), there’s some pretty boastful quotes from Mr. Lauren himself, and a particularly interesting passage on the layout of the store which was inspired by the 1953 Western “Shane” and sounds like it looked very similar to a RRL store. Unfortunately, the one thing the article doesn’t have is photos, but it still provides a fascinating look at Polo Country, a brand that acted as a precursor for so much of what RL is doing today."

The new style Japanese denim. Find the fit is better on me.

Have they actually started switching the icon denim to Cone?

I saw them earlier this season in the store and loved the material but they never had my size so could never try on. Hoping they work. 

I got these today. Actually, I wasn't sure of sizing, so I bought both a 34x34 and 36x34. It turns out I'm kind of in between so unsure which to keep. The 34 is definitely "slimmer" but the rise feels very, very low, and I am tall. The 36, however, more comfortable but a bit too lose in the waist and feels kind of sloppy. 

 

My question -- does this fabric stretch? 

 

I personally love the color and fabric and it's a good alternative to the rigid/dark wash denim when you still want to maintain a clean look. But sizing ins't ideal...

That's interesting. I wonder how many "older" pairs they have left or why they haven't gotten rid of them yet.

That is awesome. But next time you need to be wearing RRL in your celeb photo to keep it pertinent wink.gif

Thompson work chinos arrived today. Heavy selvedge canvas, sort of like an abraded pair of the Clydes in a faded black. Fit is pretty slim. Rise is lower as well. Looking forward to breaking them in.

Does anyone know if the prices are still better in stores than online?
Snow14 is a pretty good kick for some items.

Anyone own the cotton wool henley? Thinking about picking it up. Could be a nice transitional piece.
