Sorry to temporarily derail this RRL thread, but at least the denim and leather coat are all RRL! Some random pics of the Frye Artisanal harness..

Awesome shots! what cut are the jeans? my slim narrows and slim straights didn't fit too well over the shaft of the engineers

Thanks.. These are all low straights.. I wear slims also, but as you point out, they don't tend to work too well with a boot.. I also have some slim boot that are perfect for wearing with a boot like this, but I think those have been discontinued..

Yeah I'll echo the sentiments of others on here, as I ran into the same issue when attempting to purchase a pair of Frye Engineers (the 'Sutton' model, I believe).  I loved the look of the RRL boot, but wanted to see if I could get something at a more reasonable price point as the Frye's I got were less than half the retail of the RRLs.  They looked great, but unfortunately the boot shaft was comically large against my calfs.  I couldn't make the fit work at all unless tucking in the jeans, which looked fairly ridiculous IMO so back they went.  

 

One of these days I'll have to get to searching for a pair with a slimmer shaft circumference (cue 'that's what she said' joke).

after wearing a few pairs of RRL boots i was never super impressed with the quality to be honest

 

i feel like the 'upper tier' RRL boots (like the bowery) might be better quality than the ones i've worn though (belloq, boondocker, washington)

Check the Frye Artisanal boot in either harness or engineer. Get ready to pay though, as they are close to $800 so basically same price as RRL, but they are much slimmer, and much more well made (IMO) than the RRL engineer boot I own.

Could anybody who has the low straights in a 29 in rigid or one wash, could you give me the BiG style measurements, trying to find an alternative to Slim Boots since I can't get them anymore.

Thanks!  I'll keep those in mind next time I get the itch to buy a pair.  Yeah it's not that I simply won't pay that kind of pricing for footwear, but just that if I am, I need to be assured it's quality is 'worth it'.  I like all of the RRL footwear I've seen and owned to date, but unlike a lot of their other clothing, I think that one can readily find substitutes of equal if not better style and quality for less than the RRL MSRP.

Like others have noted, it's a tricky look to pull off.  I agree that generally it doesn't work if you've got simply denim in a boot tuck.  

 

The only exception I can think of is with grittier engineer boots that look like they've been put through the wringer multiple times.  A bit of sloppy tuck with some non-denim, well broken-in work pants and a similar top would look kind of cool.  However, you'd look like you just got off your shift at the iron worker's factory.  Not a bad thing but you may not want that aesthetic.

 

The fryes above look awesome but they're too clean looking for boottucks.

Hahah I looked and noticed that as well!  I'm not a huge fan of the 'squarish' toe, however seeing @gnatty8 pictures has me considering the harness boots over the engineers.  A really great look with RRL washed denim

Has anyone else picked up the Limited Edition Blue Indigo Wool Zip Cardigan Sweater? I managed to pick it up on sale a few weeks ago, I'd love to see how others styled it! I'll post a picture of mine later but this is the one i'm talking about, sorry about the ebay link:

Just realized I've been meaning to buy some RRL jeans...for 10 years. Maybe it's time. I'm in Europe, can anyone recommend a place (online)?

I know they have a store in london, I assume the ralph lauren european website might have their stuff for sale, though trying on their jeans I feel like it'd be better to try them on before biting the bullet.

Question on one wash jeans. If I normally wear a 31x30 in low straights that have been processed, should I buy same size in low straight once wash jeans or do these tend to change in size more?

Also, is there a comparable version of the low straights in lvc brand jeans, that are already processed/washed?

Thanks!
