All their denim is sanforized, you aren't going to get any noticeable shrinkage. At most you will get it back to it's original size after some wear.

If you've never worn their straight leg model, the waist may be even looser as these denim chinos rise match or exceed some of their higher rise denim at 11" rise on a 29 and 30 tagged waist.

They're calling 'Rinse' wash 'One Wash' wash now on the inner tag?

 

If the Rinse/Rigid sizing on my own RRL jeans is any indication, Rigid jeans typically come 2" larger than tag while the Rinse come 1" larger than tag. I also remember hearing somewhere that they do bake the Rinse denim which helps to create their crinkly, vintage appearance.

 

You can expect sanforized denim to shink 3-5% which is a solid 1 size on 32w, but, they will stretch back out pretty quickly.

Hey guys, I noticed lately there has been some confusion about the different washes. There is a tag on the inside of the leg that will say the cut and the wash.

The 3 basic washes we have, other than the other more elaborate washes are:

Rigid, Rinse, and Once Wash. Each are different.

Below is how they are described officially to us.


Rigid: Completely raw denim that has never been washed at all.

Rinse: A simple wash that has been baked dry to create a wrinkled effect as if they were dried under the sun.

Once Wash: A wash in clean water that is oven dried. The result is an effect that looks like old shrink to fit denim.


That being said, Rinse looks very similar in appearance to Rigid and are often confused. Both seem to wear very well like any raw denim. Once Wash tends to not show wear marks as much and tends to hold its color better. This is based off past experience with both. Once wash is a good choice if you want jeans that can be dressed up a little, because the indigo doesn't seem to wear as much. Aka, a guy who wants to wear jeans with a sport coat, might not want jeans that have whiskers and wear marks from their wallet.

This is my general observations and will vary depending upon how you care for your denim, how long you wore them before the first wash, etc.

Rinse and Once washed are the same exact thing. They just renamed Rinse to Once wash to make it easier for people to understand who don't know what a rinse means OR to see which wash sells better/more marketable before they axe one. It is redundant to offer both seeing as how they are essentially the same.

 

Rinse and rigid don't look anything alike. You can spot the difference in texture/color a mile away. I don't think you can dress up Once washed/Rinse any better than Rigid. They'll both start to develop hige and wallet fades after a couple of months. The main difference in the two is that Rigid is stiff and uncomfortable and requires time to break in which appeals to denim enthusiasts, while Once washed/Rinse are soft and comfortable from the moment you buy them which makes them more appealing to the average RRL customer, who wants a worn-in, lived-in look from his clothing - it's the lack of starch from the wash that makes them harder to fade and the reason they keep their color longer.

Also, RL's website only carries Rinse in SL and SB models while they offer Once washed in SF, SB and LS cuts.

They didn't rename anything. dastig's info is correct and comes from the RRL product knowledge, they have and still offer three washes for their non-distressed denim.

The copy describing the difference between rinse vs once wash may look the same, but there is a subtle difference. Not a huge difference imo to even worry about.

And a steal at $545.00.

$545 is in line considering it's RRL.  Polo charges $400-500 for it's cashmere cable knit sweaters made in China these days. I picked up an RRL navy Italian cashmere sweater just like this one and it retailed for $295 a few months ago for about $170 on ebay, so we're def seeing some ridiculous amounts of inflation in recent years with designer clothing. Even though the recent problems in Europe have caused the dollar to strengthen against the euro, we shouldn't be seeing such high prices from the Italian made pieces but with RRL's huge gain in popularity over the last year or two I can see why.

 

Otherwise, the '30's inspired Argyle is an awesome pattern. I'd rock it.

Love the piece, hate the price.
