Beware of the Herringbone Officer's Chinos that are on sale.
http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=65354966&cp=2943767.53333306&fd=RRL&ab=en_US_SLP_Sale_SLOT_2_MEN&ff=Brand&fv=1000055%2FRRL&s=D-DollarRank&fg=Brand&parentPage=family

I ordered a pair in Brick but the pair I received had a price tag/hang tag the size I ordered but the tag on the waistband was a totally different size.

I re-ordered the Brick and also added the Service Blue. I ordered the next size up as compared to the selvedge officer chinos or denim.
The Brick ones fit but the Service Blue ones measure about 4 inches smaller in the waist as compared to the Brick.
I like the pants but there's something messed up with QC on this model. At least there are free returns with ShopRunner.

Something is definitely f'ed up with the QC...

Long story, but I ordered a pair of the new slim fit Bayfield wash jeans in 32x32. The waist measured almost 4" too big (almost cut like a low straight) and had a 5 button fly closure. All the slim fits that I've seen have a 4 button fly closure. That could be the reason why mine were cut so big. I then ordered another a pair of 32x32s and also 31x32s. Same crap with the 32x32s, cut way too big! The 31x32s had a 4 button fly closure, but were too tight. Ball crushers!

Fired up, I called RL customer assistance. They verified that there may have been a production issue with certain sizes. What's pictured on the website (4 button closure) is what they currently have in stock at the warehouse. With that being said, since I love the wash so much, I may give it another shot and reorder the 32x32s.

I have a pair of the Herringbone Officer's Chino in service blue (purchased at Melrose), and they seem to fit pretty much like the rest of my Officer's Chinos.

Those much-hyped brown Clydes are unwearably tight, alas.

That's too bad! I bought a pair from a few seasons back and the fit is great. Unfortunately I washed them in cold water and the effect was equivalent to sandpapering the fabric.

I apologize for the double-posting!

The pants in the bottom photo is a core offering that's different than the one sold under the name "Officer's Field Chino" and described beneath the image as "TANKER OLIVE 782559368 13.6 oz. piece-dyed faille-weave cotton twill". The Tanker Olive version is also identified as a seasonal item.
I am pretty sure that the chinos in the photo were eventually sold as the "Officer's Flat Front Chino".
It's not uncommon for the name of an item in the lookbook to be different from what it's called online and in stores. Here's an example from the same lookbook; this jacket was originally identified as the "Ranch Hand Jacket" . 

 

 

But by the time it appeared on ralphlauren.com and RL stores the name had changed to "Cotton Twill Jacket".

To add to the total confusion as to what we are purchasing:

I would prefer the Stag Matlock over the RRL Matlock (if the pictures are truly accurate).

And I was considering the RRL Jacquard, but after seeing the Stag colors, not so much.

I've seen both these shirts in the store and tried on the green.  The RRL website pictures are pretty much accurate for both shirts this time.  Not sure what shirts the Stag website is picturing or even if they are the same.

For reference, I tried the capture the effect the washer & dryer has on them. they have many, many wears as well but I made the mistake of the dryer the first few times. I still like them, but it's not ideal.

 

 

 

Just a couple of quick iphone pics. As has been mentioned, the key is to avoid the dryer. I think monthly washes are fine but if you want to keep them looking as new, dry clean as @Cooly mentioned.

 

I don't hate the effect but I lost the chance to dress them up at all.

I think "the above" washed effect looks rad and makes want to wash mine ...

Ha!  Those look almost identical to a Rigid Wash grey pair that I got impatient with and decided to repeatedly wash with absurd amounts of fabric softener.  My other pair of Rigid Wash are East West's that I am doing the right way in breaking in.

 

Problem is I have purchased 4 or 5 pairs of distressed RRL's lately and they are so bloody comfortable that I have all but stopped wearing the Rigid pair.

I must say the SA's I have dealt with in East Hampton, Malibu, and Melrose (LA) have been nothing but awesome.  Especially since I have only purchased stuff on sale.

And stiff! I'm debating if i'm going to return them. It's like wearing a canvas boat cover. Love the look and the color. comfort level, not so much.
