Think your RRL espadrilles would have been a good footwear choice for this fit.

Picked up the Kentucky narrows, green fleece hoodie and the red baseball jacket today. Never tried the narrows so it should be interesting to see how they fit compared to slim fit.

Believe me, the employees share our opinion of the web site. But they have also been placed in the uncomfortable position of having to compete with the web store. 

 

I think there's an opportunity here to reinvent the retail experience. I don't have any hard numbers but I'm willing to bet that RRL customers not only have more disposable income; they are also better informed than consumers of other, mass-market brands. (Not to mention that RRL enthusiasts are better looking, more progressive and just plain fun to be around.)

 

An SA told me he's often heard of upcoming sales from his RRL customers before corporate lets him know what's going on.


Well said!

 

I work for a shop that stocks RRL, and I understand the battle that is the Online Monster, so phone orders are more than welcome when it comes to major sales - and just to reiterate it, the in-store sales tend to be better than online discounts, so never hesitate to call and simply ask for clarification! It really pays off in the end, for all parties involved. Ultimately, someone is trying to sell goods, and someone else is looking to score goods, so everyone is happy!

So this may be a dumb question, but how do you guys handle a return in the event of a send sale from an RRL retail location?  I don't really have any RRL/RL stores near me, save for an outlet about an hour or so away...

I've exchanged stuff for a better size and they/the RRL store sent me a return label for the package as well as sent me the new item in the new size.  They've paid for the shipping for the return etc.  It was very painless on my end. So far I've had nothing but great customer service from any of the RL and RRL stores (knock on wood).

 

I'm thinking the same return/exchange policies laid out on the online receipt applies to the stores but I could be wrong.  You can always ask them what their return policy is and I'm sure they will be upfront. I'm sure they get asked this quite often.

AFTER   ( This was for my daughters Farm themed party in 2014 where I was at my biggest 240lbs )




I feel you man. Honestly, its just hard work. And fwiw, you look good big too. When I met my wife I was a skinny ass skin and bone 24 year old. By the time we got married I was 210 (I'm 5'9" btw). All gut and ass. Now I bust my ass, twice a day. I run hills in the morning (I get up at 5AM) two to three days a week, and either run 3-4 miles with fartlek/hill sprints and body weight or hit the gym for 90 minutes every evening after work. Supersets in the gym. I try and eat clean, but my vice is whiskey. I'm 38 now and am probably in the best shape of my life. Here's a shot from some new ink I had started this weekend:

Sometimes I wonder if its worth it, but I feel good, still have some time to hang with my kids and I sleep like a champ. I'm in bed between 830 and 930 every night, and go out like a light until the alarm at 5. Weekends are a bit easier, as I sleep until 630-730 and kind of get a bit of the catchup hours I need from the week.

To keep the thread RRL relevant, lots of talk about the jeans. I've been killing my slim straights for over a year now. I love them, like a second skin. Just one soak on them as well:

I also have a pair of the raw Regular Straights which I bought to wear with my cowboy boots that are cool too, much higher rise and roomier all the way through with a wider leg opening...

Here's a cool piece a customer had me make for YH. He gave me some of his bed sheets when he was a kid to make into a tie for his son and himself....told me to make one for myself as well, you guys might appreciate it:

I also have the OC but I just can't seem to get out of the jeans....I'll have to dedicate myself to really killing the chinos this winter.

I know lots of resellers are on this thread, I am looking for rigid low straights in 33x34 Feel free to message me if you have any. 

post #24611 of 27146
I just checked the web site and they have some spring RRL already up for pre order. I'm really feeling the rip and repaired slim fit they have. It's made out of American denim and repaired with japenese denim. Its pricy but it's worth it imo.
post #24612 of 27146
^Those are very nice, but too ripped/repaired for my liking.

I just picked these Slim Fit New Mexico wash jeans from the 40% off fall sale.

They are awesome. Light wash, soft denim with subtle distressing/repairing/blotches.

This is my first pair of slim fits. The slim fit lower rise vs. the low straights works well for my body type. No more diaper/saggy butt smile.gif

I'm definitely going to grab these in the near future. Pretty sick.

They posted this within the past couple days. Full price cop for me!

Nearly all RRL is 30% off at Mr Porter.
