Start Date: May 1st, 2011

End Date: May 1st, 2012


So here's the scoop for those who haven't been following our blake affiliate thread..
The idea is to start fresh with a pair of the selvedge chinos and to wear them as much as possible for a full year.
At the end of the year, blake, LAGuy, and a notable someone from RЯL will vote on who has the best aged pair..
The winner will receive a "very special" prize courtesy of RЯL...

Roll Call:

stanleyvanburen
NAMOR
harveyrabbit
S-Town
stever
randomkoreandude
JasonV
bdeuce22
adadan
Blog Marley



So, as soon as the additional sizes arrive at the shop, we'll post and let you guys know. For any further questions, please go ahead and post in this thread or call or e-mail

sweet!!!

I must be missing something...how does one judge the wear on chinos?
post #4 of 1018
Inseams for the 30? I'm looking for a 30x30. Thanks!
post #5 of 1018
Im looking to get in on this if i can pick up a pair of 28 or 29
post #6 of 1018
I believe the inseams are all 34
post #7 of 1018
Everyone is going to accuse me of cheating since I got my pair in February but in the interest of fair play I will pledge not to wear mine in April.

Or, well, at least not more than twice in April.

Certainly fewer than four times. That sounds fair, right?
post #8 of 1018
how much do these run?
post #9 of 1018
Sounds cool but my chinos just lose a bit of their sheen and get softer after 2 years of wash and wear...
post #10 of 1018
these are 220.00.
they did not have 30 inseams.
I know we are getting a 28 or 29 but not sure how many yet.
these will wear like raw jeans. They are selvedge and should fade in a similar manner but obviously more subtle because of the fabric.
I am going to judge which pair wore best with LAguy and someone who is highly qualified to judge who works for RRL.
hope that answers the questions I saw posted.....

This contest interests me, but I would need a pair of 32W. I don't want to take away from your custom, but is it possible to source the RRL selvege chino elsewhere and still participate?
post #13 of 1018
Are they available in red?

Also, how do they fit?
post #14 of 1018
ahh, hell yeah. Thanks Blake! The reversed "R"
