True, and I don't know why it's on some and not others. The slims I got off ebay don't but the bootcuts I also got do. From the pics I've seen off other pairs (advan031's included) there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. Different years maybe? Same tags, though.
Fit-wise they're not ball-breakers. Per SF'ers recommendations, I went 28x32 when I'm normally a 32x32 and they fit fine initially, although they were a little loose around the waist and tighter in the thighs which suggested to me they're meant to be worn lower on your waist since the rise is only 9". I don't really think of these as "slim", just well cut.
The man asked for the slim RRL's so I responded. I wrote a msg earlier to advan031 saying that the measurements I've seen on 28x32 for both the slim and bootcut, the boot cut has a tighter fit at the waist by a good half inch, maybe more. But that's all measurements-wise. I still won't know until next week when I get home to actually compare the fit between the two.

Paper Denim SLM's, RB 11 (still gawking at how much I paid for it; amazing construction/detailing though), Paul Frank Long Sleeve, Club Monaco Shirt, Another Club Monaco Shirt, Standard Cloth short sleeve shirt, Modern Amusement short sleeve (got it on sale at UO)
I also purchased a nice military jacket from Club Monaco, it fits perfectly and is really warm for upcoming fall.
