As mentioned before, you really should get full measurements on RRL's before buying a pair as there are different "generations." It seems the more current ones are either spot or an inch or two big on the waist while the older pairs are several inches big (4-5"). I've also noticed that sizes on the old pairs vary by cut (bootcut or slimcut). My slimcut had a great fit around the thighs/legs and were a little loose around the waist at the begining. 3 months later they waist has expanded at least an inch or more (haven't taken any serious measurements lately). Can't wait to wash them so they'll shrink a bit. As for RRL's in the store, people have said on the other SF that they've found the distressed versions of the RRL's at outlets. That must be why so many are popping up on ebay these days. Certainly don't see a lot of the one-wash ones like we did 4 months ago. Also noticed that the new slimcut one-washes are sporting a new stitch design on the back pockets. Looks a little girly to me.

They're also extremely tapered, ones with a measured 34 waist taper down to around a 7.25 inch hem.

Updated pics, now in month 4/6 no washes, although they're getting a little dirty from the mud. Some lighter patches formed around the knees post-Fight Club night, same with pinhole by pocket.

The day before yesterday, I realized I'd had my bootcuts since February and decided to wash them for the first time. In spite of the fact that I've worn them out and about quite regularly since buying them (almost everyday for a roughly three or four month period, I'd guess), I still have very little fading other than on the knees and the back right pocket (from my wallet). The water was pretty gross, though; I was glad I finally got around to washing them. I didn't quite realize how long I'd had them. I still have a pair of the straight legs that have been worn maybe a dozen or fewer times. Considering how well the bootcuts are holding up, it'll be years before I wear them out enough to start wearing the straight legs! Awesome jeans, especially considering, having bought them pretty early on, I was able to get them for less than $30 a pair.

Haha. As soon as I have wear interesting enough to justify breaking out the camera, I'll post some pictures. Maybe I'll have bought a better camera by then, too; it'd be a nice coincidence.

Did anyone ever have any luck shrinking these down significantly? I got a pair with a 32 waist off o' eBay and they're easily an inch+ too large. They fit fine with a belt, and the fit isn't too baggy (I think), but I'm wondering if I should bounce 'em back on the intraweb, or if they'll come in a little.

They'll shrink a little (4% max I'd say), but then you'd still have the problem of having them stretch back just as fast. Bounce them.

whodini,
are the rrl's you've got selvage? I usualy wear a 33 - do you think a 29 in these will work? Thanks.

I'll make a definitive list for you and others I'm sure will ask after you regarding RRL's: 1) Read this thread from the very beginning. It goes over roughly 99% of any question you might have. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=17761 2) GET ACTUAL (READ: NOT JUST TAGGED) MEASUREMENTS BEFORE YOU BUY. There are many generations out there on the market, many without rhyme or reason to the tagged size vs. actual size. 3) Measure the waist of your favorite pair of jeans and compare it to the measurements on the RRL's. Depending on how you want your jeans to fit in the long run, either get your exact size for a regular fit or a size or two down for a tighter fit. 4) If you go for a tighter fit, THEY WILL STRETCH OUT anywhere from two inches or more. Once you've worn them in as much as you'd like to, washing them will bring them back to the original size or smaller. 5) Although SANFORIZED, they MIGHT shrink up to 4-5% (MAX) after the wash. If your pair is LOOSE to begin with, it's going to stay that way or even become looser. After the wash, they will stretch back out to the waist size you want. 6) ALL RRL jeans are selvage.

I'd like to see examples of where you've seen that. Otherwise, RRL uses the same selvage material for all their jeans. Here's an example from their more current line: http://cgi.ebay.com/Ralph-Lauren-RRL...QQcmdZViewItem
