Do you guys know whether RRL Melrose store still have clearance stuff with extra %30 off?
post #25532 of 27143





Got these in the mail today.

Bowerys feel real nice, pretty damn stiff. They feel a tad loose but with a half size down i know they would feel too tight. Dont think i would pay full price for them

Ebay for 30 bucks. Has about a dime size discrepancy in the upper left hand shoulder (you can see it almost align w the hanger. It still had the sales tag on it too so for a 490 dollar piece im not too worried about it. Maybe spend a few bucks and get it stitched over

Anyone know how much shrinkage to expect on the inseam for RRL denim after the first wash? I am interested in getting a pair of the raw slim narrows.

Nice deal on the waistcoat.  You should definitely get the blemish stitched up -  a good tailor can make it virtually unnoticeable without close examination.

Recommendations depend entirely on where you're at and I'm guessing you probably don't live in my area.  You're already on the right track, though - do some research and find a full service tailor in your area with high marks.  Stay away from the dry cleaners and related types, they don't usually have the broad expertise and tailoring isn't their primary service, so the work is generally mediocre.

 

Building a solid relationship with a good tailor is critical to keeping your pieces in presentable order.  Goes for everything you wear, not just RRL.

I am new to RRL and I haven't read much here either, so apologies in advance for noob question/s: where did you purchase those boots? And what is Bowery - a company that makes RRL Boots? 

I just purchased a pair of whats called the New Clifton boots because they were on sale and looked decent... they are stiff as hell though, but look nice :) Do you, or does anyone else here, know who made those?

 

Thanks

I have 4 pairs of washed slim fit utica, topeka, helm and fairmont all of them size are 30, should I wear the same size?

 

Thanks


At least for me, there is a night and day difference between the Rigid wash and RRL's pre-distressed washes.  The first two pairs I ordered were both Rigid and the bottom line is you really need to invest some time before they are anything resembling comfortable.

 

That said, I totally respect and understand by going raw denim that they truly are unique to you and after sufficient seat time uber comfortable.  In the beginning, the starch on the Rigid's really is quite stiff.  Of the two Rigid's, I am spending the time to break in the East-West denim indigo pair whilst honestly destroying the grey pair in a fit of fabric softener and repeated washing and drying.

Now I got some god awful vertical creases on them.  Total fail.

 

The Topeka, et al are truly some of the most comfortable jeans I have ever owned and 6 days out of 7 wear the pre-distressed.  Killer washes and silly comfortable.

First day breaking in the bowerys. My toe is pretty much touching the tip so theyre good in a length but its a pretty roomy boot. Have them tied really tight. They do feel extremely comfortable however

Nice, yeah the Bowery's have an 'interesting' fit/last.  I know you mentioned they are stiff at first, but stick with them, they will quickly break in and be buttery soft in no time (unlike my cliftons, which are still pretty brutal).  

 

No lie I have quite a few pairs of shoes and boots, and I wind up reaching for the Bowery's at least 3 days a week.
