post #24211 of 27662

That all depends on the style and cut of the garment.  Some RRL pieces are deliberately designed to fit very close to the body, while others are designed to have a loose more relaxed fit.  So you can't just say that you're a certain size in RRL and expect that everything in that size will fit you.  For instance, in pants, depending on the cut, I'm anywhere between 32-34 in RRL.  Whenever I'm considering something in a new style I've never had before, I always try to find someone selling the same thing on eBay or some other online store because often they give exact measurements.

I'm a true 32-33 and find that RRL size 30 works best for me in jeans and chinos. Other pants may differ. I've had to return some corduroy pants for size 31. That said I will sometimes buy chinos in a size 31 waist because I want more room in the thighs and knee. It's relatively easy to have the waist taken in an inch or so by a tailor.

I'm a 33 waist and usually get a 31 in RRL.
A 32 will typically fit perfectly when purchased but stretch out too much after a couple weeks of wear.
YMMV.

Do they still sell Officer's Pant in Selvedge cotton in the stores? I haven't seen them online in a while.

Yes, they are currently selling a rigid sulphur navy and slim British khaki selvedge cotton in the stores. Certain RL stores such as the S F store carry the slim khaki one.

Can I ask you guys for some advice on RRL denim

How vanity sized is the waist? I need 16 inch measured flat: would I be looking for a 30? 31? 32?


And is that roughly standard across models and recent seasons?

Thanks

Anyone have this Dark Denim Western Shirt?

http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13088111&cp=11588650.12138271&MobileOptOut=1&ab=rlmobile_footer_viewfullsite

I really like the washed and faded look of this piece. I have many western style shirts, but no denim. I am a big fan of western-seamed yoke/shoulders and snap buttons. Is wearing denim shirt with denim jeans ok? This is a core item and it usually will never go on sale frown.gif
post #24220 of 27662

I have that shirt. 

I think denim on denim is fine (I'm Canadian lol), but I would wear a light shade top and dark jeans.

had that shirt.  Had to return it, it's fairly slim fitting.  A medium on me was like a muscle shirt, not a good look.  Want to size up to L but haven't gotten around to reordering.  

 

If you decide to order, you might want to consider getting your normal size and one size larger, compare the two for fit and return one.

Most of my jeans are medium to dark wash. RRL has this shirt in a rinse wash, but it is a really light wash. They also have a dark wash with no fading, darker than the one I referenced above.

If I decide to order, I’ll most likely go with a large since it’s a slim-fit shirt. I recently ordered the Kane Cotton Western Shirt in large. The Kane is a slim-fit shirt and it fits me right on. I wear large in RL Polo custom fit shirts and medium in classic fit.

What were your first impressions of the shirt?

Deez, enjoy them!

SIAP, but what is the fit equivalent on the slim narrows in slim fits or low straights? In the latter 2, I'm pretty consistently 31x32. Should I go 32x32 for the slim narrows? TIA

I have the rinse wash shirt as well.

 

My chest size is between 38-40 and I went with the medium I don't think a small would fit me, I'm 5'6" so the sleeves and length is a bit too long for my liking.

 

Here's a picture of me with the rinse wash for reference.

My impressions, quality-wise the shirt is superb.  Fairly meaty denim, solid construction, nice hardware.  You're correct in that it seems to never go on sale and pretty much sits at ~$265, but it's a great piece that will last a long time and only look better with wear.

 

I wouldn't pay that much for most RRL shirts, as they're not really worth what they're asking, but I do think the denim western shirts are fairly priced.  Look at it as an investment and as a piece you intend to wear for a long time and the price suddenly makes a little more sense.
