Do they have a strong sulfur smell?

Yes, have them, wearing the new black-on-black today...love them.  They absolutley reek of sulphur (smells just like a box of matches) when I first bought them and even after numerous soaks in tide and one full wash, they still smell of sulphur ... still I highly recommend them...they are keeping their black color after a full year of wear...

Get compliments every time I wear it (also wearing it today to a Summer party - very breathable/lightweight))...

 

....but note, it is actually a slim-fit, and when I washed and dried it, it shrunk, and basically couldn't fit into anymore (to tight in the body)...but magically, it went back to the originally size when I got it pressed/laundered.

 

Great recommendation. I ordered it and it came in today. Awesome material, absolutely love it. Thanks for the shrinking info. Tag says wash delicate, hang dry. I would have washed cold and hung dry but now I know to be extra careful. It fits great as is but I'd hate it to shrink. 

 

I also paid full boat on a pair of slim fit midland in Stillwater. I love their washes but hate paying full price. I like them, they fit. It still stings a bit when I'm used to combing ebay for RRL items.

glad you liked the shirt too...

 

...but I am stunned the tag actually said something besides "Wash cold, dry on low".  I cut those tags off right away because they irritate me, but I also thought they all said the same thing...now I know to actually read them :) ... thanks...

Don't know how other people how found RRL Officers but it seems the cut /sizing has got a bit smaller recently ?

 

 

Did you get these in yet?  Curious to hear your opinion regarding fit/fabric.  I have a pair on their way as well but ordered my usual officer chino size.

I personally like the RRL suiting.  I'd own more of it if I were in a position to wear it more often, but my 'dress up' these day's mostly consists of business casual at best.  As noted by others I find it a good mix of old (wide lapels, intricate fabric) and new (nice 'Euro' cut/fit).  Whether or not it would be frumpy IMO would come down to how well it fits you.  If the cut is flattering then by all means you can easily pull it off.  But I can see how a poor fit combined with some of the vintage inspired styling would come across as frumpy.

It's well fitted, though it would look Non modern because of lapel size and trouser rise. Personally would buy the sports coat of not for center vent

Sorry for the delay but some of you dudes asked about the Plainview boots.

Here's a pic of mine. Y'all were right, they're suede not smooth leather.

These are size 10 so don't think they were the last pair gnatty was talking about.

Good pair of boots at the sale price but not worth it at retail. With respect to cowboy boots, you can get Frye Billys at much better price and they're just as nice.

Fabric is nice.  The "whiskering" (which concerned me) is pretty much non existant.

 

The fit is very similar to old officer, just but a little slimmer  and without a giant waist (personally i have found that i used to sized down, whereas that is no longer neccessary)

 

small niggle is that the direction of the cord is 90 degree on the pocket flap.

 

Personally i would heavily lean towards hemming rather than cuffing (like the cotton officers).

It actually was on the paper hang tag that came with the price not on the actual shirt's tag. I usually toss them but wanted to check the MSRP and noticed two paper tags, one with laundering info.

Thanks for posting, those are really nice boots and I wish I would have bought them when I had the chance! How do these fit? I am a 9 1/2 in Alden TruBalance, and a 10 in most other things.

I got them. They fit but definitely are slimmer than I would like (which is the previous level of slimness).

The fabric and workmanship are excellent, however!

Yeah, I'm a 9 1/2 too in most shoes but took a chance on the Plainviews at 10. Surprisingly the fit pretty well - feel ever so slightly loose in the heel but not to an extent that makes them unwearable.

I wouldn't feel bad about missing out on these. Like I said, Frye makes an excellent boot at a much cheaper price, at most $300-350 but most are in the $200s. I recommend taking a look at the Billy model if you're so inclined.

Also, you know the next round of sales will offer more markdown opportunities. It's like clockwork haha.

Impromptu photo of my RRL raw clyde chinos post-repair.

Huge shout out to Denim Surgeon in NYC.

They did an outstanding job fixing these.

Had a huge crotch blow out with 5" hole and very frayed edges.

No visible fraying and they added a patch that matches the color of the inner pockets and detailing.

I should also note they're noble act of working on my dirty musty chinos I've owned since Jan 2015 with no wash.

That bright spot on my thigh is from a bloodstain rigorously scrubbed out. blush.gif

I take it you guys aren't familiar with @thatjcrewginghamshirt Haha.

Though this sale item caught my eye too and it looks like a nicer fabric than the one J Crew peddles endlessly.
