Does anyone know who makes RRL's made-in-USA tailoring? Got the herringbone tweed suit and the finishing is impeccable.

(Seems to be half-canvassed, if that helps.)

My SA sent me nothing! Time to find a new one, I guess. ;)

I had to return a couple officer chinos due to this - couldn't get the fat metal button through any, but one, of the holes. Otherwise, great pants. baldy[1].gif

Been on a bit of an RRL spree of late.  First pair were Indigo Dyed Slim-Narrows (16oz Japanese Denim) in Rigid Wash.  Followed that with Slim Fit Selvedge in Grey (Rigid Wash) that I kinda regret purchasing. 

 

After spending 2 weeks wearing the Slim-Narrows nonstop I got impatient and ordered Slim Fits in the Wichita Wash followed soon by a pair of Low Straights in Sulphur Springs that I thought were Slim-Fit's in the New Mexico Wash.  That was due to a misunderstanding as I ordered them over the phone from an RRL store.  As I really wanted the New Mexico's especially with them being Japanese denim and RRL seemingly phasing them out and loving the wash, I tracked down a pair from the Melrose RRL.

 

While I know in time that the Rigid Washes are going to be amazing, I must say that the Wichita Wash ones I have been wearing about nonstop are the most comfortable jeans I have ever known.

While I have Simon Millers, LVC's, and several other brands, there is something special about the RRL's.

 

I also want to give props to the employees at the RRL stores that I have spoken to.  All have been super helpful and way accommodating.  Especially with all pairs being on sale.  Might just be having pity on me for living in Deliverance Country (seriously)

Nice write-up man! I've been on a RRL buying spree as well. I picked up the New Mexico wash jeans just over a month ago during the fall 40% off sale. They are killer!!! I also picked up the new spring slim-fit Bayfield wash jeans, but the sizing is way off, so they went back. Slim fits are great and now trying to locate a pair of the old style slim fit Stillwater wash jeans with the iconic back pocket stitching. If I am not mistaken, all new slim fits don't have the back pocket stitching.

Bayfield Wash is rad.  And thanks truly.  Digging the Low Straights that arrived yesterday, but beyond stoked about getting the New Mexico Slim Fits  The Sulphur Spring LS's are the first pair I have with stitching on the back pockets.  Definitely prefer the Slim Fit out of the pairs that I have purchased so far.

Happy New Year,

Jack

Yep, we are defiantly a bunch of enablers on here, but that is the best part about this forum. I end up trying things based on your guys recommendations and usually end up with something that wasn't even on my radar and am usually very happy with the result. If it wasn't for someone talking about those limited edition Ro Buck jeans last year I would have never given them a second look and now I can say that they are the best jeans I have ever had.

Have a Happy and safe New Year everybody.

Agreed! Those Carhatt brown pants you convinced me to buy were sort of on my radar. But I get so hesitant to buy anything off the website without seeing another picture first, or at least a description from someone (we all know how misleading the actual color of a RRL piece is displayed on the website). Once I heard your description of them, I called my SA and grabbed me a pair smile.gif

Here's something else that confuses me. I've asked  SA's about a buckleback pant I saw off of instagram. But they all tell me the color of this pant is grey. But this pic off instagram at least to me is brown. Am I coolorblind? Or did this guy overexpose the picture? Anyone familiar with this pants?

The fit on these is great FYI, Love the darker brown color, much better in person than the website.

 

Did you guys go TTS on these clydes? I thought they would be vanity sized by 2 inches like the old officer trousers so I sized down by 2 and now I cant even fit one leg in. Maybe I gained a lot of weight the past year? I don't have a measuring tape or ruler lying around and wondering if I should go up 1 or 2 sizes.

Crossing my fingers a 36 waist is tts!

Sorry should have said that was for a size 34 waist. So buttoned they seem pretty TTS . I'm sure they will stretch a little as they are very rigid, so keep that in mind.

I'd go TTS. I tried them on in a 29 (down 1), which is what I went with for the older rigid officer chinos, and while I could button them up it wasn't very comfortable and not a great look IMO.

FWIW, these are pretty easy for a tailor to let out or take in thanks to the open-seam construction in the waist and seat, so going up or down by around an inch shouldn't be a big deal if you have a tailor you're happy with.

Another interesting thing RRL related today. I sold a RRL jacket on eBay the other week and since I wore it once I listed it as preowned. Now the guy I sold it to has it listed up for sale and it has magically grown Ralph Lauren store tags (not RRL ones) and is listed as new with tags.
