Great stuff guys. SVB, congrats on the belt.
Was in the RRL shop in London yesterday, really nice set up. Up there with bleeker st. Had a chance to handle the "selvedge" chino. What a joke. It was super, super lightweight, honestly could have mistaken it for the regular cotton ones. Disappointed in RRL over this as the chino isn't what it used to be. When I first got the chino, the LE version had the 12oz 128x128 weave, super stiff, faded beautifully. Then the following year, weave was 11oz 128x96 (something like that. This years edition was even less stiff, softer, yet felt and looked like the real deal. The pair in the London store is only 9.25oz 100x50. Would not kop again. Should consider the possibility that this may be a spring summer version , hence the flimsy quality of the garment, but since its a core piece I highly doubt it. Fortunately some other RRL work pants still feature the original material, best to examine firsthand
