Thanks!  Yeah loving the rayburn boots so far, as with much of the RL stuff I buy, can't see paying the $900ish retail, but I snagged them for a little over $200, which I think was fair.  On a snowy day like today they are working out well.

Does anyone know the origin of the name and logo of RRL? I know Ralph Lauren has a RRL ranch but I wonder if he named it that after the fact. Is there any significance or reference in the name RRL or the use of the backwards R? Is it a nod to something? I know some of the tags are influenced by the old "union made" garment tags so I'm curious if the name and style of the "RRL" has any significance.

Is it really named after his wife? That's the first time I've heard that. Ricky Ralph Lauren doesn't have a nicest ring to it. Was RRL her brainchild or some kind of dedication to family life on the ranch?

Well if it is named after Ricky, it's called Double RL, not Ricky Ralph Lauren so the ring doesn't matter ;)

 

But I'm pretty sure it is just named after his ranch. RRL started as a nod to the southwestern culture where he bought the ranch as far as I know. So it makes sense.

Yes, he named RRL line after his ranch, which he named after his wife. Get over it.

 

PS. Those LE rigids look sick. Not really digging the upside down Levis arch though (didn't RL already get sued over that?)

 

Also the price $390 is pretty steep for STF rigids but if it has a LE numbering/small size run, that adds at least $100 to it's value. Hard to believe they would sell out at $390, but I guess it's a sellers market right now.

They got sued when it was flipped the other way around. Must be a nightmare for them to sell those online with sizing issues. They tell you to add two inches to your normal size, but you normally size down two on straights. So you buy them in your true waist size? They also don't even mention what the inseam is.

Limited Straight Leg...Bout time these came out…..

Dastig - Length? … x 34 or x 36?

fwiw - i have had many unsanforized aka STF (non RRL) and none have yet to shrink two sizes down and stay there. STF = +1" W, +2" L for me personally (unless redic long to begin with >36")

Ah, I got it now. I wonder if they made a conscious decision to stop using any more "Ralph's" for the newer brands since the lines got kind of confusing. Rugby Ralph Lauren (RRL), Double RL, Lauren Ralph Lauren. Ha.


So is there any significance to the backwards "R" and the typeface used? Typography is one of my interests so I've always been curious about the logo.

lol aaaaand this is why I havent really dipped into pricier denim yet.. too much variation Im reading online about sizing scares me. 

 

that and my fat ass needs to drop a bit of poundage :o

post #18223 of 20881

I usually size down 2-3 in sanforized denim and 1-2 in STF. Depending on the brand/cut.

 

Most of the time the waist/thigh stretches back out pretty quickly. It's more the length you have to worry about. Size up 2 on the length, go TTS on the waist and you'll get a pretty solid fit (or anti-fit.)

got the new slim back jeans - size up one from your raw slim fit size.

I don't know about that.

I'm a graphic designer, so typography is an interest of mine as well.

Personally I absolutely hate the backwards RRL logo. I'm sure it has some kind of significance (maybe that is what the logo of the ranch was before they bought it or something) but it is the one thing about RRL I don't like haha.
