Thanks for the feedback Fenderplyr! Yes, am looking for straight cut with brace buttons (doesnt matter buckleback or selvedge)... will look around. I liked this pair but wasn't sure if $190 (including shipping) is an OK price to pay for it....

I couldn't find any straight leg with brace buttons on ebay...let alone around $140.....so gave up.

 

But I found this grey pair (link below) but not sure if they are even authentic? I ask because I am a real noob...

yeah they are authentic. I believe they came out fall 2015. I hope that you are aware that they are a slim fit with a taper. I thought you was looking for a raw indigo pair of straight leg. There are a pair of limited edition straight leg that are currently full price on Polo.com but you can definitely wait it out. A few months from now I'm sure you will be able to get them for 200. I also buy alot of my RRL at the Polo store in Lenox too. Johnathan is real helpful with locating items.

Thanks for the feedback boxdok! And thanks for pointing out that these have a taper.... not what am looking for. Will wait it out as you suggest. 

Also, I agree Jonathan has gone above and beyond in terms of helping locate items for me from all over the country (Taylor is good too but haven't worked with him much)...

So the 2016 Summer Look book is going around. Collection is okay, but not super stellar. Out of curiosity, I am wondering how far back folks have seen look books. The oldest I have gotten my hands on was from 2011. Anyone have look books that predate that still available to them?

Thought the new look-books were supposed to be more readily available to customers, is there anywhere to download it?

It's my first foray into rigid/raw denim. I have several RRL jeans (indigo slims, standard low straights, red slims) but this is my first dive into rigid.

I ordered the once washed slim fits and the rigid slim fits to see what fits better (and return the other). I am consistently 31x32 across the board so I decided to get that same size with my new purchase.

The once washed fit very nicely and has some room, but buttons snugly, right where I need it to be. The rigid is a different animal - super snug, very snug around the back of the knees. The overall fit and silouette of the rigids are great! But, the snugness worries me. I understand it will break in over time, but I'm trying to ascertain how much I need to break it in before I start to get more comfortable with it. This is akin to asking how long a piece of string is but if I wear the jeans on the weekends and make it a point to wear them throughout the day (and not tuck anything in lol), am I looking at a couple months?

I have seen various approaches to this but I was curious if there was consensus. Do I keep the rigids and just work on breaking them in? (Cold) Soak them first (while worn)? Or, do I take the safe bet and stick with the once washed? Does the cold soak come AFTER a few wears? Keep in mind, I'm not super picky over what kind of neat break-n fades I get by I don't want to short change my denim.

To a non-rigid head like myself, is the difference to someone like me nominal between the 2 jeans post break-in?

So many questions, so many jeans.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Stick it out, but wear them as often as you can. My break in was a little tougher than the other guys, prob a few months before they really felt like mine, but now they fit like a second skin. I don't think I'd ever get a diff pair when these die out. May opt to size down one though as the stretch in the waist makes these sag just a little bit.

I'm guessing that snugness around the back of the knees is typical?

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I will suck it up and stick with the rigids!

The Spring lookbook is online. Clicking on an item takes you to the item on the website. But I'm not sure you can download it.

It's kind of hidden at the bottom of the RRL landing page. Scroll to the bottom.

we're looking for summer, not spring
post #25871 of 27125

Since there's been a lot of talk about jeans and some about the slim-straights lately - I thought I'd post an updated picture of my first pair of RRL Rigids/Raws I purchased back in 2014 (during the Nov./black Friday sale time frame).

-For the first year, I wore these nearly every day.  I washed them inside out and hung dry them monthly during the first year.  

-After the first year, they've became my house jeans or chore jeans (gardening, hiking, walking the dog...anything where I do not want to get my other jeans smelly/sweaty ...etc. ).  I now treat them like a pair of cheap Levi's and wash and machine dry them whenever they are dirty.  The only thing I'll add is that they did become less rigid after I started machine drying them a lot.

 

This is what they look like almost a year an half later (taken today).  They are holding up very well ...the quality is excellent.  Like the front fades a lot.  Very little honeycombing (they are just showing)...I also included what they looked like new...

 

Anyway if you wanted to know... :)

I've had the Bayfields for just over 3 months. They are by far my all-time favorite pair of jeans. Nice light-weight (12 oz.), light blue wash.

I would say they run a touch slimmer than typical RRL slim fits. I did some quick measurements 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.

Go back one page for pics that I posted.

There is also the summer release Easthams ($420) that Cooly posted one page back. Not on the website yet. They are very similar to the Bayfields but they are 11.5 oz. Japanese denim vs. Bayfield 12 oz. American denim.

Fade progression on the slim narrow east/west rigid from a year ago. One rinse, zero washes
post #25875 of 27125

Anybody have any experience with dry cleaning RRL denim?  Wondering if it produces fades in the same manner as a rinse/wash.  I have a pair of black RRLs and in this case I'd like to preserve the dye.
