The Official RRL Thread - Page 1632post #24467 of 2716811/10/15 at 4:56pmjust took a trip down to soho. I could seriously live in the west Broadway store. salesmen were super nice and there was a Japanese magazine for sale there that had a rrl editorial featuring the guys who worked at the store. pretty rad. one of the guys told me they have about 40% more merch at the store that's not available online. I presume that doesn't include all the vintage rolexes and all the silver/turquoise jewelry they sell. tons of bandanas in all colors and patterns. also some rigid officer chinos in navy with a jaspe waistband I was eyeballing. walked away with some accessories but now regretting I didn't blow a weeks pay on workshirts and sweaterspost #24468 of 2716811/10/15 at 6:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by dukarelli

West Broadway is by far one of my favorite stores to walk into. My wife who isnt much of an RRL fan gave in when she entered that back room with the leather couches. Everything about it makes you want to buy something. To bad I live in Phoenix now :(post #24469 of 2716811/10/15 at 10:29pmpost #24470 of 2716811/11/15 at 10:39ampost #24471 of 2716811/11/15 at 12:41pmpost #24472 of 2716811/11/15 at 12:54pmQuote:
Thank you! They weren't stiff but were def raw. Because they have a lightweight cotton backing it allowed the denim creases to set and allow for some nice fades.post #24473 of 2716811/11/15 at 2:28pm
My limited success with the recent 40% coupon. I should have grabbed more to up my batting average. As it stood, I only kept two things. Reviews and commentary for those that might be interested...
90% sure I will keep these. I've been eyeing them forever, finally took a shot. They're brighter than this in person. I like the detail and the stacked sole. Solid, with a nice grain and texture to the leather you can't see in the picture.
Knew I wanted this after trying it on in-store. Was just waiting for a sale. Great shirt. Recommended. Color is pretty true to the picture, maybe a little brighter.
Too thick. Like cardboard. Color is great, though. I liked the buckle-back. Would have been a massive tailoring reconstruction. As usual, I had to get a 32 for thigh opening and the waist would have had to come in like 2.5". And the seat, too. I really like the idea of owning a pair of these for a long time and breaking them in- too much work, though.
I really wanted to like this. Color and fade is true to picture. It is so, so soft. I almost kept it just for around-the-house comfort if the fit wasn't so odd. I found it billowy in the midsection and oddly long.
Also really wanted to like these. I found them to be flimsy and too thin, as well as sized confusingly. With RRL denim, I always get a 31 and 32 hoping one will work. In this case, the 31 had sausage thighs but almost fit in the waist and the 32 had a top block like a garbage bag and still almost too tight in the thighs. I've had very limited luck finding denim that fits and when I get close, I still have to tailor it. I'll keep trying because I am stubborn. I might even try the slims instead of going straight or low straight, just to see if the cut would work after tailoring the waist.
Cancelled! I wanted these badly. Something I wouldn't normally try, took a risk and had high hopes. Site says there are still some in stock so I'm going to call and see what's up.post #24474 of 2716811/11/15 at 3:01pmpost #24475 of 2716811/11/15 at 3:33pm@oynag: Unfortunately I missed out on the 40% off promo code. I have a pair of the Low Straight Dark Wash/Stillwater Denim jeans. I like wash and the lighter weight. Low straights fit me great although they can be roomy in the seat area after wearing them a while, due to my flat rear. They rebound back after washing and light dryer setting. Maybe there won't be much diaper a** with the lower rise in the slims?post #24476 of 2716811/11/15 at 4:05pmSome cheap RRL low straight
no one has raw for cheap though (my 5yr old once wash is close to have a hole near crotch...)
Bought this one (as dark as it gets)
by the way slightly off topic, if I want to "upgrade" from RRL, what are my other options, I would prefer something fits similar to low straight with perhaps slightly higher rise and more tapper leg opening. Does Big John from NMWA fit the bill?post #24477 of 2716811/11/15 at 5:25pmQuestion fellas: I purchased this indigo shirt below and it's a tad big, if I cold soaked and air dried could that do the trick without compromising the shirt?
