The Official RRL Thread - Page 178

post #2656 of 27174
In response to my sale threads, NAMOR was curious about the things I've picked up recently that I have decided to keep. Here's a couple quick pics. I've never had so much luck before (heck, never founf jeans in my size before). Still haven't turned up any seledge oxfords or officer chinos, though. I'll probably wind up keeping a few of the things in the sale threads, too. A lot of near misses on sizing - I've been shrinking to between sizes recently.

That blue cadigan and the two light blue shirts are awesome.

Has anybody tried on the D-2 cargo pants from the American Graffiti collection ($290)? I'm wondering how baggy the fit is. Also, are these lightweight cargos or made from heavier material?

Yes, they are lightweight and are a little baggier than the recent seasonal icon cargos (if you've tried those on as a comparison). They are between 2-3" larger than tagged (vs your typical 2" larger) since they are milspec sized due to the inner buttons to attach a removable wool liner. You should be able to go down an additional size from your normal RRL size or just use the side tabs. I don't think going down an additional size would reduce the overall bagginess of the pants though if that's what you are concerned about.

Thanks for the info.

yeah, unfortunately, I don't think there's any other way of finding out what line it is (unless there's a sku on the interior tag that translates into name of line). So if you throw out the tag, you're sool. There's one ebay seller who's really good about using the line in the product description (the one based out of miami).

If anyone was considering making a trip to the Pleasant Prairie, WI outlet in search of RRL, I can spare you the trip. Ab-so-lutely nothing as of Saturday. Only thing of any interest whatsoever was a pink Purple Label v-neck sweater, size L, for $43.

Just received a pair of RRL Low Straight Rinse that I bought off here last week and have a few questions.

Does anyone know the weight of the denim used by RRL? These feel pretty average to light weight (maybe slightly lighter than preshrunk 501s). I remember handling some APCs and LVCs and they were stiff as hell like cardboard but these RRLs are surprisingly soft. Is it the rinse process that RRL uses or something? Will these still fade nicely and last a long while?

I heard that they changed the denim and mine are older versions, so I'm not the best commentator. But mine are fairly heavy, I'd say 14oz based on comparing them to other jeans. They got very soft after a soak, but they are baggy and so its difficult to guage stiffness and I don't expect fading (which is ok with me).

I've seen far fewer examples of RRL fading than any other brand I pay attention to . Whodini posted some pics of his in this thread. But the best fading I've seen is p. 74 of this thread here:

I will probably take these out of heavy rotation now that they've gotten to almost the perfect amount of fading. Much more wear and they'll probably start tearing and unraveling.

if you go to barney's or visit Context they have the raw Slim Fit which I tried on at my local barney's. those are stiff like cardboard.

The rinse RRL low straight that I m wearing now is pretty soft and from my research is that RRL tends not to fade till after like 2 months of beating them. so i'll just have to wait and see.
