Interesting RL Pants

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So I was browsing the RL site and came across a number of interesting looking pants. It seems people are constantly looking for slim-fit chinos; has anyone tried these offerings?


Thompson Ultimate Fit Slim Chino


Custom-Fit Twill Chino

While I was looking I also found two pairs of interesting jeans. I probably wouldn't wear either of them, but I don't think I've seen anything like them.


Five-Pocket Skinny Jean (Black Label)


Slim-Fit Pinstripe Jean

I'm not trying to advertise for RL or anything, but I thought the above chinos might be useful, and I can imagine there's at least one person on here that would like the black label jeans. The pinstripes, not so much.

The slim-fit chinos look decent.

I cannot say I am a big fan of the jeans though.

I agree, i wouldnt touch either of those jeans. I do really like the first chinos though

I really like the fit of the Thompson Ultimate Fit Slim Chino. I will have to check them out next time I go to the RL store. They also have some nice other colors available such as navy and white. Anyone have the measurements for these?

slim chinos look nice, cheaper than incotex (which i'm currently debating whether or not to buy, in a similar khaki color).

As with most things on RL website, those pants will most likely NOT fit nearly as slim in real life. The combination of pinning and 40L models do wonders for their product pictures.

Agreed. I'm sometimes amazed at how psychotically large RL clothing can be - despite the fact that every ad campaign shows it like a second skin. It's great news if you want to put on 50lb without changing your wardrobe.

I don't really find these pants that interesting. The chinos are alright but you'll have to get them tailored for them to be a slim fit. The same goes for J. Crew. Their slim stuff (aside from their shirts) is rarely as slim as I desire. If I pick up a pair of pants from them (I'm considering one) then they'll have to be slimmed further.

I'd be interested if the rise wasn't 13-14". If the rise was reasonable, i could get the rest tailored. Still haven't found me some chinos.

Chrono, I'll probably sound like a broken record but my first RRL pickup was some military officers chinos. They are $165.00 I think and the detailing on them is great. Button fly with genuine melamine buttons and flap pockets on the back. The front pockets are straight down as opposed to five pockets and they are fairly slim. They'd be perfect if tailored but they are slim enough as long as they stay on my hips. They haven't gotten a wash in 1 month of steady wear. It would be 2 months but my first pair got a hole so I returned them and both pairs had some slight fades within a month. The twill is heavy. Overall, they are pretty nice. Since I have to wear chinos to the office four days a week it's definitely going to be these.

You can call up the Uniqlo store in NYC when they have the Vintage Chinos in stock and have them ship to you. They will actually do that. Of course, pickup service is always an option.

I haven't handled the Uniqlo Vintage Chinos in person but FWIW, people have said the J. Crew Essential Slim Fit chinos are slimmer(same fit on the top block but the legs are tapered instead of straight like Uniqlos).

Where did you purchase them from? Sounds like the pair I've been looking for.

I got them at the Polo store in Atlanta. But, they are from his Double RL line which is mainly western/workwear/military inspired. They've got them in a really dark black as well. Not sure how they are on sizes in stock right now, but I got a 30x32 (I measure 32x32) and my APCs are a 30. I'd say they fit similarly in the waist to my APCs. The chinos aren't tapered but are a slim straight.

Here is a pic:

if i may ask, why aren't you washing them? I'm not saying you should be washing them, but you seem to be making a point not to. Do you really want "fades" in your chinos, and is that even possible?
