How many times have you washed your east-west slim narrows?

They look pretty rad, but way more faded than mine ... I've worn mine "a lot" for almost a year now... but only cold soaked them about 3-4 times and mine are not nearly as faded...

I'll have to try to take a picture tomorrow so you can see the difference ....

Cold "soaked" once as I worn them in the shower to try to remove some starch since they started to break the skin behind my knee

Just received the brown twill jacket and dig the material but it's just too short unfortunately.... I'm not tall but I just don't get these "rugged" jackets that barely hit your belt line.

What size?

For those who purchased the matlock plaid workshirt in S, can you share the actual measurement please? Thanks!

Are you talking about the Cotton Twill Jacket (Ranch Hand Jacket)?

I am 6ft/170lbs and have it in large. It's hit me right at the belt. I think it's designed to hit at the belt. I love the jacket!

Conversely, the other Straight-Fit jean currently on offer, the Dylan Jean, has an almost aggresively relaxed fit. I inferred from an SA at the Mansion recenty that all future Straight Fit jeans would be cut like the Dylan Jean, i.e., big. That's bad news, if true. I wish the company would model Straight-Fits after the cut of the Once-Washed.

As for the Low Straights, I like them in theory, but the low rise doesn't work for me.

 

The Straight-Fit Once Washed have become my "go-to" jeans. Slim, but not too slim. And darkly crisp without the "cardboardness" of rigid denim. 

 

In fact, they've pretty much replaced my once-beloved '47 501's in the rotation.

 

As Virgil observed, "Man is ever fickle and changeable." :)

The length is because 'back in the day' everybody always tucked in their shirts, and it didn't make sense to have a long work jacket - it looked silly, and wasn't practical. Coats were long, not jackets. Nowadays, nobody tucks in their shirts so yes it looks odd to most, but it's actually very true to the time period that RRL is sourcing from

Is this the one in Lenox? I thought they had a pretty large RRL section last time I was there, but that may have changed..

If they'd made that laceup with a captoe, I'd have been all over it..

I just received one of these:




In a Size L, anyone got an XL they'd like to swap? It's a tad snug for me with a thick t-shirt underneath and I'd like the extra room, but if not I'm keeping it.

You must have huge shoulders! I am 6 ft/170 lbs and would be swimming in anything RRL much larger than a M. Every coat I own, including leather, are S and there are only a few of the shirts I had to size up to M for.

Rob, very nice, especially the coat. That fabric is just killer. Can't see the trousers very well though, are these the denim trousers that came with the suit?

Nah not really. I have a runners build with border line broad shoulders. This is my first RRL jacket and it fits right on point. I initially ordered a M. Way too snug all around and felt like it was painted on. And it was really short, like above the belt.

I generally wear a L in slim fit clothing (i.e. RRL Slim Dark Western Denim Shirt) and a M in regular fits (i.e. Matlock Plaid Workshirt).
