post #3061 of 27175
The shirts aren't that hard to measure, so you are probably fine buying off of eBay unless the seller is a moron and can't measure. Anyways, my thoughts on the shirts is that while the westerns I've tried on aren't any slimmer than the regular workshirts. The difference to me is they taper more in the body, but nothing extreme. Compared to the selvedge oxfords, the oxfords slimmer all throughout the body and sleeves as well (at least the solid colored ones, white one maybe less so).

Really the only thing to look out for is shirts that are meant to be overshirts, those are the only shirts I would be aware of as they fit larger for that reason.

I have the raw slubby denim western shirt from a few seasons ago and while the fit is slimmer and tapered in the body, the sleeves are somewhat relaxed and nowhere near BoO slim. If the selvedge oxfords have BoO slim bodies and sleeves then these could be perfect for me as my only real complaint with the western is that the sleeves aren't slim enough. Are only the selvedge versions slim and are they all part of Icon Core?

Exactly, the western sleeves are pretty relaxed like the normal shirts. I don't think any non-selvedge oxfords are currently available, (there are chambray ones part of seasonal icon this year, but they are regular fit). The ones made from Japanese selvedge oxford fabric are slim and were sold up until FW10, the tag says made from Japanese piece goods, and the RN number is printed on the inside of the collar.

It appears they discontinued those which would make sense as they are now popping up on eBay and I recall someone posted to this thread saying they had seen them being marked down 25% off at an RRL store. They only mark down core items if they are being discontinued. From the pictures I've seen, the newer versions look to have a fuller cut. The tag now looks like this



And for reference, I measured a matlock shirt, which is representative of standard RRL shirt sizing

Matlock
Armhole - 10"
Sleeve width at middle - 6 3/8"
P2P - 20" (slowly tapers to 19")
Cuff width - 4"

Selvedge Oxford
Armhole - 9.5"
Sleeve width at middle - 6"
P2P - 19.5" (tapers immediately to 18")
Cuff width - 3.75"

The taper from 19" to 18" is pretty huge as that's 2" less fabric all around. Considering RRL sizing is based off of XS=36, S=38, M=40, etc, the taper feels much more extreme compared to the westerns.

Excellent info as always el duderino. Now to get sellers to check the inside tag for me. Don't understand why they would discontinue these and replace them with a fuller cut.

Probably because other NWT RRL jeans have sold for $95-$125 recently. Not knocking you or anything, but you can't expect something to sell if your asking for more than what the market will bear. Anyway, I only say this because you did kind of the thread.

he's not asking for an unreasonable price. 47 gbp is like 75 dollars. honestly i don't see how that's not fair, especially considering the hard to find size and the fact that they're hardly worn.

Oh, I saw 123 USD. Maybe that is confusing people. I retract what I said. Did not notice the price down below.

that's how much he bought them from me new (including shipping from us to gb)

The western denim shirts are designed to be rugged work wear. Worn outside to protect the wearer while doing dirty farm chores and sweaty ranch work. These were not intended to be fashion wear. The sleeves are looser so they breathe and can be rolled up. It's a very well made, practical shirt.
