They fit a touch slimmer overall compared to my Slim Mexicos, but that's ok. I really like the light blue wash and the light-weight denim (12 oz).

I also ordered the Matlock Plaid Workshirt in medium. The size is right on! Thanks for all of your sizing recommendations. What an awesome shirt...great look, fabric and construction. This will fill the "plaid shirt" void in my closet.

So how would you say these fit? are these actually "skinny"? Cause iv'e heard they run small.

I have an XL (could use a size L), bought for $50. The last one on Ebay sold for, like, $90.

$900 nice? In his wet dreams....

But I'd offer $80 for it if it were my size.

$900 is definitely out there. for a "collector" that jacket is a nice score given its age, but in the $150ish range.
from experience NWT RRL denim jackets go for about $200-$300 on ebay. i got one a few months ago at the outlet for $150 (currently breaking it in), shame about the restructured pricing on RRL, i used to get them for a lot less.

They are definitely not skinny. I would say they run a touch slimmer than typical RRL slim fits. I did some quick measurement of my slim fit New Mexicos and Bayfields. The Bayfields are about 1/4" smaller in the front rise, thigh and back rise. And about 1/2" smaller in the leg opening.

Lookin pretty good ... Like the flight jacket...

... As far as going full RRLtard .. Lately Ive been going full RRL and don't think it looks costume-ish at all ... Actually it makes it really easy to just put anything on and it matches and looks good together ... And all the shirts fit the jackets perfectly etc ....

So apparently the London store is closing... Beginning of the end?

Stopped into the highland park store yesterday. Surprising amount of RRL there. The air reserve jacket runs small so I'm happy I tried it on. The cord officer chinos were real nice and so was the western linen sweater jacket. Ultimately walked away with nothing but happy I stopped in to see the sprawl.

Ps. Still no summer catalog.

That being said, if it's worked for you then that's all that really matters.

I'm late to the party on this one, but figured I'd add my two cents. I routinely have my tailor alter the waist and seat of my RRL denim and have never had a complaint. I know he doesn't use a chainstich machine for these alterations, but I also don't think this is crucial for a waist/seat alteration. Yes, chain stitches on the hem are important if one wants to develop "roping" on the hem over time and avoid that freshly hemmed look,but I don't think a chainstitch is necessary in the seat at all. I've had at least a half dozen pair altered and have never had an issue.

Noted. I think my apprehension more-than-partially boils down to my distrust of tailors in this town. I also have an appreciation for the seat construction on higher-end pants, so perhaps feel a little guilty in marring this work.

How do you wear this sweater? Unbuttoned?

Pharrell is one of the coolest dudes on the planet. YMMV, but for that price, I'd rather go with VISVIM or some other brand.

To be fair, I do watch The Voice every now and then, and Pharrell has been wearing another Southwestern inspired shawl cardigan by another brand a lot this season which looks really cool...don't know the brand/designer, but it looks pretty awesome..I'm sure it's quite nice...

 

BTW, I do think that RRL shawl cardigan is great....as far as wearing buttoned or buttoned, I think it would depend how cold/windy it is ..but I think it could look good either way (buttoned/unbuttoned)...the RRL "sweater" webpage also shows the model wearing unbuttoned...

 

I have one RRL cardigan and it fits "slim", not sure if this is as well, but the brand usually fits slim in general so it would probably look good buttoned (as opposed to boxy/too roomy)...

I believe the other sweater he wears is from Kapital. Adam Levine also seems to wear a lot of RRL sweaters both on and off the show.

custom chain stitching on a RRL jkt, inspired by the L.E. jkts currently on the website.
