diaper-ass selvedge chinos. thats whats become of these are after 9 months of wear. even after having the seat and waist taken in. Maybe my ass is just too big so it stretches out more and more every time I sit down. The fabric is becoming thinner and thinner in the crotch as well. With that said, received multiple compliments last weekend while in SF. From the menz though confused.gif

I will say that the cut of the seat in these things is the biggest drawback. i too had the seat and waist taken in and while it helped, they do stretch so with time it just gets worse. I still love mine, tho.

Gotta add that the nature of the "contest" where you/we subject pants to a more heavy use/less rotation/less washing probably adds to this. Of course they should be able to hold up to heavy use, but any fabric--even the really heavy denims--stretches and relaxes with time, use, and lack of washing/water.

Yea - I would say that these are worth getting altered every couple of months though if that's what it takes.

Does anyone know how the Left Field Chinos (something like these http://www.leftfieldnyc.net/product/caramel-herringbone-chinos) compare with these RRLs? It seems like they're a little bigger in the thigh, but otherwise somewhat similar. I'm trying to find something similar that allows me to give the RRLs some more time off.

Hm. I guess it's good to see I'm not the only with a diaper ass. I'm too cheap to ever get these altered so we'll see how bad it really gets.

my foresight tells me that this is a disaster waiting to happen. what happens after you finally wash the chinos?
post #762 of 1021

post #763 of 1021

I've not handled that fabric, but I've tried on the chino in two other fabrics. The fit is quite different--higher rise, more room in thigh, and wider from knee all the way down. Basically a "true" straight leg, where the RRLs are more of a slim straight--though to be fair not *that* slim, esp if you are actually skinny.
