Stupid question. I've only ever worn slim fits. Just bought a pair of low straights for the hell of it to try out.
What are the main differences? I'm a 28, and the waist, rise, and leg opening measurements seem to be the same for both a 28 in slims and a 28 in low straights.

Just confused because if the leg opening of a slim fit (for me) is 7" and they are tapered, why would the leg opening of the straights be the same? That almost seems like they would be slimmer throughout for some reason.

I know they aren't...just curious if there were any inconsistencies.

 

I'll find out soon ;)

The slims are supposed to be slimmer and more tapered than the low straights but in reality the sizing between different washes and fits varies a lot with RRL. I also have low straights that fit the same as slim fits while others are noticeably roomier, all in the same tagged size.
post #18321 of 20943
from my understanding the low straights are SLIGHTLY bigger in the thigh and straight from knee down so leg opening again should be SLIGHTLY larger

slim fits are supposed to be slim through the thighs and slim all the way through from seat to leg opening

the difference between the two are there but probably not that noticeable. also i think the rise is diff on the two

Rkd, I love the pics of the olive officer chinos. Did you size same as your selvedge officer chino?
post #18323 of 20943
They are denim, not chinos.
post #18324 of 20943
I'd imagine that when you get as small as a 28 the differences become less than they would be for larger sizes, as well.

You are correct. I recall rkd owning a pair of the olive herringbones

Anyone planning on attending the closing party "Inspiration" at the Melrose store Feb 8th?  Apparently the Koji taco truck will be parked in the lot serving up some free dishes.   I wish I could go.
