It usually gets shipped to one of a few warehouses around the country and re tagged for outlet pricing and then distributed slowly throughout the next few months. Seemingly at random.

Limited edition olive slim fits or the indigo ones? Any sizes left? To call and ask a store for sizes does one need a sku number?

It will be another half year til these sales items hit the outlet store. Possibly next year.

Yes, I have with ambivalent results. So I'll say it depends.

Other than the obvious needing a good tailor, it depends on how much.

In my experience, up to 2 inches lopped off the waist will produce negligible visual results. I took in a pair from around 38 to 36 with fantastic results. Anything over 2 inches I wouldn't recommend. Hence taking in my first pair of Rescues years ago from 39-40 ish down to 36 (tag size 36) completely ruined them. The back pockets got too close together and the rise became much longer feeling.

Some people are sticklers for never taking in the waist, but it really can produce great results without adversely affecting the look of the jean.

I should also add that I think the softness of the denim will allow the tailor greater ease in taking them in well. So if they are stiff like raw wear them first through multiple washes, whatever the frequency, and then consider taking them in.

I'll be getting a pair of ALD taken in soon from around 37 to 35 but they have been worn for well over a year and washed multiple times.

Damn!  I'm flying into Manhattan today on business too! My first stop after a coffee and a slice of cheescake from Ferraro's was to the RRL shops for some deals. Bummer.

Really solid advice. I'd add another option, if you only need to lose 1 to 1.5" off the waist - pull off the top waist button and have a new one put on further from the edge.

Thanks guys. Appreciate the advice. Basically I'm in between sizes - 34" is too narrow in thighs though I can fit it around waist but extra tight. 36" looks much better on thighs yet is too big. A 35" would have probably been perfect.

I've also had to make waist alterations to a couple of recent pairs (slim-fit slate blue and slim-fit roper wash). Each time I took about 2" off the waist and they now fit perfectly - especially the roper wash, which are just a great fit in every possible way. The slate blue's have a slightly larger leg opening than my other slims, but are perfect everywhere else - at some point I'll just get the hem of those altered slightly.

Olive ones, unsure what sizes they have left now

What do you usually wear and what did you buy the slim slates in? apologies if you already said a couple pages back...

I wear a W36 and bought W36. I don't like squeezing my legs/thighs into a W34 and W35 is hardly ever an option.

I remember a few years back when WOODBURY outlet received tons of Rugby goodies...Sweaters, cardigans, polos and tees for under $20...

Would calling RL CSR (near future) have any info on them reaching the outlets??
