Looking through the merchandise, it seems like a pretty meager private sale, compared with private sales of yore.

It's 25% feathers and you never know about how windproof it'll be. Even RLX might be a better choice for winter gear.
Of course if styling is the goal, then.....

Just FYI. I'm not 100% positive on this it I have been tentatively informed that there will be no fall markdowns till around Thanksgiving.

Yeah last year RRL didn't go on sale until the November 25 Designer Sale.

That's part of the reason I get the fall/winter wardrobe shopping done early ... Because by the time the sales start rolling around - I have to buy other things like Christmas presents, airplane tickets, and then all the spring stuff starts coming out etc... But if you can do w/o in-season clothes then you get great deals on just about everything/all-brands

Why not have it both ways! ;)

so...looking for advice from people with experience w/ rigid chino's...  

 

If I wash them in the washer, do most people hang dry them or dry them in the dryer on low (as the directions say)...

 

I ask because RRL jeans say to do dry them on low as well, but I would not recommend drying rigid jeans as they turn the jeans permanently soft  afterward...and I do not want this to happen to the rigid chinos...

 

Normally I dry clean all chinos but with one of the rigid chino's I am looking to to see if they shrink a little after washing them...especially in the seat...

 

thanks in advance for any feedback...

Thanks to all who answer my questions about the Slim Dark Denim Western Shirt last week. I received the shirt today and it's the bomb. This shirt is everything you all described and then some! It's the one in the link I posted, the dark wash faded out one (not the super light and not the super dark, the one in the middle).

Cooly, thanks to your post, I ordered the Ranch Hand jacket smile.gif I should have it next week sometime.

I've been on a RRL kick recently. This forum is enabling smile.gif

I machine wash in cold water and hang dry. Once they touch water, they will lose some of that rigidity permanently and become soft. The twill weaving also becomes more prominent with some marbling on darker color chinos. I do think they initially shrink a little bit, but stretches back out with some wear.

Hope that helps,

-D

Absolutely! Here is a killer outfit...western denim shirt, low-straight stillwater wash jeans, ranch hand jacket and Alden Indys. I'll definitely be ready for the ranch! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hi all,

 

I'm mostly a classic menswear poster normally. I'm trying to discover a few more S&D brands to add up things in my wardrobe. It's pretty full in terms of classic menswear clothing but am looking for nice chunky sweaters and a few casual outerwear pieces.

 

I visited the NY RRL store and was a bit underwhelmed with the quality of the products. Most of them did not feel really well made. I might be spoiled by the classic menswear side or by the rather early 2000s sweaters I purchased from Dior Homme but I wasn't impressed. 

 

What's your take on the quality of the RRL manufacturing?
