Also, for those more interested in RRL's cowboy aesthetic, this guy pulls it off well: https://instagram.com/long_knife/

 

He's got quite a few pics of him in RRL, as well as more general Western themed photos.

Thanks

 

There is much vanity in RRL sizing.

 

I like a 16.0 to 16.5 inch waist measured flat (depending on the rise and fit) and always buy denim and chinos in a size 30. I would recommend getting your RLL denim in a 29 or 30 waist. If there's an Ralph Lauren store near you that sells RRL, go there and try some jeans on in different fits.

 

Invest the time before you start buying stuff online.

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

Looking good! The rinse wash is way too light for my liking. Reminds me of stoned washed jeans from back in the day smile.gif The one I referenced in the link above is more of a medium, faded wash, which I prefer. I just have to be careful not to have an exact match shirts with jeans.

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.

Thanks for the feedback. Agreed, I would never pay the going rate for most RRL shirts, but the Dark Wash Denim Shirt is a core item that I intend to wear for a long time...

No prob.  If you're trying to figure out what to pair it with, I'd go with non-indigo denim.  Something like their canvas buckle-back pants: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=65354936

 

You could always take the Canadian suggestion, though, although I prefer to mix the indigo top with some sort of brown pant.

I was actually able to get the rinse wash western shirt for about 100 USD last december at the west broadway location

I wear chinos to work and jeans all other times, so I'll most likely go with the Canadian look smile.gif

Lol yeah, I don't dislike the Canadian look.  There's a pic of Jason Statham floating around on the web where he's wearing the dark indigo wash with darkish denim and it actually looks ok.

 

And the other poster mentioning he got his shirt on sale at West Broadway reminds me, it's true that you can sometimes get deals on items in-store that you can't on the website.  So, if you can get to an RL store that carries RRL during the next big holiday sale (Thanksgiving?  Christmas?) you might luck out.

I am in the Philly area, so no RRL action around here. I've been ordering RRL stuff online, which can be a pain if you need to figure out sizing. I reached out to one of the RRL stores in NY and they said this item will never go one sale because it is a core item.

I suggest a day trip up to NYC, then.  If you've never been, West Broadway RRL is an amazing store.  The Mansion also carries some RRL.

Yup the sleeves and overall length are long on these westerns with me being forced to wear it tucked in.  On top of the length the chest on a XL came in a bit over 25inches PTP

Anybody own the indigo dyed slim fit cords? Thoughts?
post #24238 of 27634
I saw them in person. They are really nice and they have a nice slim fit with a taper. It has a really strong overdye though and they are a really dark blue. Warning, they may bleed everywhere. At 420 they are a little over priced for me. If they drop under 300 they are a definite buy. I think they will pair really nice with a denim jacket and some boots for fall.

They have adjustable buckle tabs which helps you dial in a nice fit at the waist. I also considered the olive Regiment Cargo Pant. The olive ones are definitely more versatile. Actually, even right before I took the tags off the camo ones yesterday, I debated on exchanging for the olive ones. It came down to how,I was going to wear these, so off went the tags. And the camo ones are made with ripstop material so I can beat them up more. Here is a quick pic...

 

 

Does anyone know where these might still be available? They seem impossible to find now especially in a 36". I wish I purchased them when I had the chance!

Own them - love them - highly recommend them...

Definitely my favorite pair of cords in a long while. I shopped around for a bunch of high priced cords and liked the color and fit of these the best.

Warning - they bleed over everything ... Crocked my belts and the inside of my new khaki ranch hand jacket blue - the bleeding is just starting to subside ... But the color is killer. Will have to wash them soon - first time after like 20 wears - hoping for the best.
