Planning a trip to NYC in June so hopefully if the stores stock them I should be able to try them out.

Fit seems to be tts and quality is nice but not as good as I had hoped, maybe the brown ones look better. They usually have them both in stock in store. If I paid retail for them I'd probably return them, but I got them with the employee discount everyone's been talking about so for the 291 I paid for them isn't bad.

Are you talking about the slim fits?
All mine have a 7" opening which is the same as any other pair of slim fits in other brands I've seen. Never really seen a smaller opening than that unless you get a super skinny cut which RRL doesnt have.

7" leg opening on size 28 will be something like 8" on a size 34 with the same proportions.

@NAMOR Aren't you like a size 12 in shoes? I think you can get away with a bigger leg opening. Having stove pipes with a size 12 foot will make your feet look really big. Unless that's what you're going for.

Oh...I didn't think they really altered the leg opening that much.

Ya, 8" is wide for slims.

Thanks, I'll check 'em out when I get the chance. I'm looking for a nice black boot (preferably on the more narrow side of the spectrum) specifically as I've realized with all the shoes I have in my wardrobe its one of the glaring omissions.

Yeah they feel a little wide for "slim" but look okay here:


The low rise though sucks. My ass got bigger since the last time i owned them
post #19824 of 23695

Leg opening looks good there.

And ya, I hate the rise on the slims. No idea who wants a rise that low...

No joke you're forced to coordinate outfit better to prevent ass crack

It used to be higher. I have a pair from 2009, and the rise is an inch higher, and the seat is more comfortable than my 2012 pair.
post #19827 of 23695
Damn that would make sense. I purchased my first pair late 2010 and fit better. Hmmm

I have the same problem . . . large RRL long sleeve shirts are frequently too large and mediums are usually too small.  This makes my tailor very happy.

RRL slims are not like slim cuts from other brands . . . they are more akin to a traditional slim straight.
