If anyone is looking for some new slim-narrows to break in for F/W - RRL came out with some medium weight east-west's in the "green cast" denim. It's the same color as the slim selvedge denim jacket they came out with a month ago.. I was so enamored with the denim on the jacket I got the jeans too (so now I have the matching top and bottom for ma Canadian tux :) )... here are some real exciting pics to enjoy
PS: when I have some extra time this labor day weekend, I'm going to try to take some pics of the first pair of slim narrows East-West I've been wearing for about year and half. Just gave them their first full wash and dry (after numerous soaks). They are starting to fade really nice ... the east-west denim is superb...post #26660 of 271759/2/16 at 8:13pmpost #26661 of 271759/2/16 at 8:34pmpost #26662 of 271759/2/16 at 9:52pmpost #26663 of 271759/2/16 at 10:46pmpost #26664 of 271759/3/16 at 4:43amQuote:
I have a very similar D&S cardigan that is very similar to this except lighter weight and much more faded and I absolutely love it. I'm assuming this is indigo dyed as well?post #26665 of 271759/3/16 at 4:49amQuote:Originally Posted by RandJG1
Wondering if any of you has had the need to replace a button on an RRl denim jacket? I need one like this. although id be ok with any same size RRL button. and if thats not possible, just a similar one that isn't like the generic Jo-Ann Fabrics type. Any help would be great. thx
I've never done it myself but I know of a tailor near me that specialized in denim repair. They can replace those metal buttons so I'm sure you could find a tailor who can do it.
If anyone is in NYC I highly suggest:

When I first saw these i thought the patching was ridiculous and clunky. then i saw them in person and factored how they'd play with the current cord jacket and was instantly sold.
they run slim, so had to upsize from my usual. Meant i had to forgo an inch in the length but could let out the hem. I've come to prize the handwork and distressing so for me that cost is justified. But maybe thats just me.
I consider it ridiculous to pay a premium for faux-damaged and repaired pants. My regular pants will reach that point naturally and I can then get them repaired.post #26667 of 271759/3/16 at 6:04amQuote:
I know what you mean. I value patina in just about all the things I am into, guitars for example. Take a look at Murphy Aged Gibson Guitars. When its well done, whether guitars, furniture or clothes, I'm attracted to it. I could probably buy vintage clothes, and do some hand repair by myself, or wear things until they require that degree of attention. But if you're an xl or xxl those sizes are hard to come by. And I work too much to have the time. I guess thats my justification. And yeah sometimes i shake my head at myself and say, thats ridiculous too. I was on a shoot once and the wardrobe stylist had a pair of faded jeans that had patches all over it. They were amazing. I asked her about them, she's a seamstress and did it all herself. Thats the best.post #26668 of 271759/3/16 at 6:45amQuote:Originally Posted by RandJG1

I should probably elaborate that my issue is not with all clothing that has a worn or broken-in style or patina. I was referring more specifically to the all over patchwork or paint stain covered clothes that are sometimes sold for a hefty premium despite imitating the look of a ratty old pair of pants or shirt. To each their own.
One possibility is I consider it "phony" to some level. Though the same argument could be taken further and applied to almost all RRL clothing that's styled like a reproduction or vintage military workwear.
I guess I think you should earn your patches and patinas.post #26669 of 271759/3/16 at 7:40ampost #26670 of 271759/3/16 at 8:31am
