Two more with rivets from the Fall line—Rummell Corduroy Officer's Pants in Anchorage Brown and the Clyde Cotton Twill Trouser in Carhartt Brown.

Some nice stuff these last few pages..

Thought I'd post a pic of these fuzzy RRL slim boot from a couple of seasons back. I think I've worn these all of 3 times since I bought them, washed once since they were stiff as a board and I don't really get too concerned with making my own fades.

Posting this since it's a double header of RRL denim. Damn shame they have DK'd the women's RRL line. My wife was not thrilled..

Saw this jacket on Mr Porter today and thought, "oh theres a new leather jacket from the spring collection" so when i went to RRL to see it there I was really struck at the difference a photo can make as I've been seeing that coat for weeks now already. I just didn't recognize it. I know this isn't a new issue. But wow what an example.

Double RRL - RRL Inception? Core Denim Western under the Rust Workshirt from Winter collection. I know a lot of people complain about sizing issues, and maybe I'm just a RRL apologist, but I think curtain cuts are produced with the intention of layering? The Denim pearl snap is a Medium, and so is the Rust Workshirt. I can wear them stand alone, or stack with others. There's almost a beauty to the inconsistency from one shirt style to the next!

Wow, that is a huge difference. I would pay retail for the coat as pictured in the top photo, but doubt I'd even look twice at the coat at the bottom..

I agree photo's need to be touched up but RRL"s for some reason seam to be worse than most brands out there.  Its like they use instagram as their photo editor.

The coat looks more attractive in the other photos on the Mr. Porter site.

 

 

This is always an issue with RRL products. There's no substitute for seeing—and trying on—an item in a bricks-and-mortar setting.  

 

While the web site photos makes some pieces look more attractive, there are also cases where the images fail to do the clothing justice. I would never have purchased the Officer's Field Chino if I hadn't seen it in a store where I could appreciate the fabric and color of the pants.

These give me around 0.5 inches of breathing room in the thighs but very loose and baggy around the calves.



Which fit would work better? There is a fit called low straight but I can't find detailed measurements



Thanks!


Jump on low straights. Best all around timeless jeans cut

I was eyeing the same coat as soon as I saw the pictures on the RL website and had the same reaction as most when I saw the photo on Mr. Porter.  I then saw this photo on Frans Boone's site and felt a little better about the color possibility.  I'll still wait until I can make it down to my RRL store before deciding to purchase.

Damn can't help but say I'm a little disappointed. It was my favorite item from spring. I still like it but it dropped a few pegs.

Not quite RRL related but purchased the frye artisanal engineers recently and was just wondering how you guys wear these? Is there supposed to be heel slippage? Do you tuck your pants into the boot or wear bagger pants to go over them? I feel like a dope wearing them but the quality and look of the boot alone makes me want to try to work it in

I may get bashed, but if you tuck your boots you may think it looks like this



when it really looks like this




You are much safer with this look.




If you aren't a daily rider, or a rider at all, tucking will look silly 9 out of 10 times. it just will. Some will disagree. Untucked is easy to pull off anywhere, anytime. Tucked only looks good on a bike or if it just comes natural and looks effortless. If you have to ask, then I wouldn't tuck or go too slim.

Thanks for the tip aquila, had to call two stores over the course of three days - no SA available yesterday for some reason, maybe the storm - but I managed to snag the Carhartt Clydes and Blue Cashmere Crewneck at 30% off sale price.

To each their own, but I don't tuck my jeans into boots like that. I have several pair of Frye's artisanal boots, and I notice a tiny bit of roominess in the heel it doesn't bother me, and the boots fit well otherwise, so it's probably not a problem. Coincidentally, the RRL Murdock engineer boot, which is one of my hands down, all time favorite boots, has this problem..
