I think the straight leg fit is the most natural/proper fit...it just makes sense really

I'm 6 ft ~175-180.  Hm.  Might just call an SA at the RL stores.  I've had two RRL flannels, the M was too small and the L was gargantuan.

Yeah that is honestly you're best bet.  I've had flannel's in large that were way too baggy, mediums that didn't work at all, etc.  Too much variation and you'd have to get the opinion of someone that has that exact piece which is going to be difficult.  RRL's sizing at times is baffling.

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.

Got these today, part of Empire State and not available online, road chinos with a gray herringbone stripe.

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 #19827 of 21419

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 #19830 of 21419
Damn that would make sense. I purchased my first pair late 2010 and fit better. Hmmm
