Maybe there won't be much diaper a** with the lower rise in the slims?

Maybe. Worth a try. I've always avoided slims due to the perception they'd have tight thighs. I'm willing to test that perception, especially since I've resolved to tailoring them anyway. Thanks.

what do you guys normally pay to have your jeans tapered?

Why not just have a tailor take it in a little?  Would probably only cost an extra $10 or so, maybe less.

Yeah not sure why I don't?! Could do the trick, thanks for reminding me of the obvious!

more sample sale pickups. debating on which one to keep... leaning towards the first one. i like how they both have hidden chest pockets on both sides.

Those look awesome. Nice pickups.

Guys, I need some RRL denim jean fit advice. I received these low straight midlands today.

http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=42330216&cp=62444606&MobileOptOut=1&ab=rlmobile_footer_viewfullsite

Nice light wash, soft, mid-weight denim. Exactly what I am looking for.

I usually wear 32x32 but feel that these fit me right on. Should they be more snug? I feel like I am in between 31 and 32 waist size. Denim definitely stretches out and also rebounds back when washed/light-dryer setting. Should I go with the 31 waist size?

Of course this is all subjective, but I would go with the one on the top. They both look like nice shirts, but I think shirt #1 offers a cleaner, more classic look. The lighter color buttons and the rounded angles on the pocket flaps make #2 appear more cluttered.

 

If you decide not to keep the one on the top, I would be happy to take it off your hands! ;)

Look like nice jeans. 

 

For what it's worth, this is my experience. I started out buying RRL denim in 31W. After a few months of wear, the new jeans I thought fit perfectly turned out to be a size too large. I switched to 30W when I realized the weight of my wallet was pulling my pants down to my ankles.

 

It's true washing denim restores the fit, but the pants will sag more quickly as time goes by.

Yes , they are very nice and the lighter wash that I was looking for. The photos on RL.com are way off, as usual. I didn't have a chance to take photos, but they look more like this...

Yea makes sense, it's best to size down with denim, especially when in between sizes. I called RL customer assistance and ordered the 31W. They upgraded me to complimentary 2-day shipping, so I should have them on Wednesday. That's great customer service!

Got really lucky on Wednesday by calling the RRL store in East Hampton, NY and ordering a pair of Slim Fit Indigo-Dyed in Topeka wash for a silly price. 

 

 

For about 5 minutes, the same pair along with 2 other pair of distressed RRL's were on the clearance section of RL.com with all being around $120.  Unfortunately, the 32's that were online do not work for me and while I spent 20 minutes talking to RL Customer Service in the hope of them checking inventory at the stores and was told I would be getting an email of the stores with the various ones, it never arrived.

 

Also recently purchased a pair of Indigo-Dyed Slim Narrows in East-West denim

 

 

 

 And a pair of Slim Fit Selvedge in Grey:

 

Biggest thing I like about the Topeka wash pair is they are a 32 inseam whereas the other 2 are 34's.  In addition, both the rigid washes are one size bigger and require a belt. Still, could be happier about all three.

i was leaning towards the first one... i'll be throwing the 2nd one up on ebay in the next few days. i received quite a few PM's about size... the majority of items made at sample sales are size medium (and size 9 for shoes). i do have some cool RRL bags as well... if anyone is interested send me a PM and i'll shoot over the ebay links.

Respect.  And here I am feeling good about being able to wear a 34.  Then again, when weighing 320 lbs at the age of 13 and dropping down to 180 by HS graduation I suppose changes ones reference point...  God, did it suck having to go to big & tall stores at 13!
