I stopped by the Ralph Lauren store in San Francisco listed on the first page of this thread (the store on Post, Crocker Galleria), they had no 28s (or 29s for that matter) and only had two generic pairs of the boot cut in the standard blue. Very little RRL, really....

Any advice on where to dig these up if even the stores don't really have much??

Cheers & thanks!

Check my sig!

When looking for RRL in the B+S section, what do you type? Or how do you do it?
post #2568 of 21460
I dont knwo buts that the reason i think the B&S section needs to be cleaned up somehow, with sub categories and stuff

Oh, and I forgot to ask this.

Are these selvage?

I have absolutely no idea. Sorry.

I just posted the link because I like a lot of RRL stuff (though not the Made in India/China etc etc part), especially some of the crazy pieces that only Japanese collectors appreciate.

However, will cutting the hem down from 34 to 30 make any difference in the fit because I'm taking a larger chunk out, or is this not really an issue?

Thanks!

Probably going down from 33 to 30 since they probably will shrink and could shrink up to that much.

It probably wouldn't make any difference at all, but if you're really wary then ask the seller to measure the leg opening across and then measure across the leg 4 inches up. The difference if any will tell you what kind of difference there might be.

This is the same Cardi. It pills like a mother though.. Fits TTS. I normally wear a size L but bought a M for a tighter fit. Very light and fluffy The sweater. I usually wear L and bought it in that size. Fits TTS. Like I mentioned it is reversible. Grey/greenish on one side, black/charcoal on the other. Really nice weight to it. "Slubby" would be a great way to describe the weight.

BTW, did any of you guys see the feature on the one of the founders of Imogene+Willie in a recent Free&Easy magazine?

There was a highlighted RRL shirt. It was basically a button down chambray shirt with visible selvage gussets.

Is this shirt a regular in the different RRL collections? I have never seen it before, but I'm feeling like it should be my second RRL purchase ever.

Anyone here from SF Bay Area been to RL on Fillmore recently? Do you guys recall what kind of RRL denim was in stock? I won't be able to go until the weekend.

That was a seasonal icon piece from FW10. It sold well, so your only chance would be to hope for it to show up on eBay next year. I have a feeling you would like a lot of RRL, there are much cooler shirts than that. I feel like the more popular dudes on superdenim on sufu won't admit to liking RRL soley due to the whole Made in asia and distressed aspects, despite RRL producing nice stuff consistently. The fact is though it's one of the best fitting lines if you want slimmer fitting vintage inspired tops. I still don't comprehend the anti-distressing dudes rocking crispy stifel, hickory stripe, poka dot, etc patterned tops which look so costumey without any hint of wear and the amount of wear to get them to look broken in would be ridiculous. I can understand it for jeans, but not for other items. If I can be bothered, I'll probably post some pics from Heartland, but I was thinking Blake might have picked up some of the key pieces and may have better photographs.

@NAMOR, I HATE YOU! I hate that those sweaters weren't in my size! Haha! You got lucky! Also, I didn't even realize it was reversible.

Have a question or two about RRL jeans. I saw the Slim fit in GQ this month. They looked very nice, so I figured why not. I have lost some weight recently and toned up a bit and my previous nice denim was getting a bit baggy. I went to San Francisco, the RRL store on Post St. had a 36/32 which is my old size, however, these fit nicely, slim but not tight orskinny and I could see right away that they were quality. They are the selvedge indigo, I'm assuming of the One Wash variety. The fit in the waist is good, and they could shrink an inch or so and be fine (especially with my continued weight loss) but also because they would stretch back out. With a 1.25 inch cuff, they are a bit bunched up at the bottom. My question is, with a cold soak and line dry, will they shrink, in the waist or length? What do you think? I had a bad experience with inseam shrinkage on some raw Tellasons and I don't want to repeat. The staff was unable to be specific, which for a $230 pair of jeans is quite inexcusable, but they were beautiful, so I bought them. They said dry clean the first time then cold soak. Thanks,

I was at the Post store in SF just a couple of days back and I believe the only kind of slim fit they had was the slim bootcut....RRL also carries a slim fit.

Your question is also something I've wondered about - in my experience, jeans stretch out, not shrink, so I buy just a smidgen tighter than I'd like so that it fits perfectly after a while. I'd be concerned if it shrinks, so I'd also appreciate feedback on the subject!
