How much slimmer are the low rise, or should I say how much roomier are the straigt leg vs the low rise straigt leg?
Do the low rise come in the one wash and the raw dry rigid?
If so how different will these two behave, meaning the stretching vs the shrinking of the two. i have searched and it has been hard finding a definitive answer.
The Straight Leg is more of a traditional 501 cut, the Low Straight has a lower rise and is slimmer if I'm not mistaken. The Low Straight is in no way a skinny jean it is simply slim. For fall I believe they were only going to release it in a one-wash. The stretching/shrinking is a moot point as they will both act the same.

[I Should have asked the kid] I've done a search on the internet and can't find any RRL jeans with the same back pockets. Also, why are RRL jeans in general so hard to find? I can't find a lot of these for sale on the internet (including Ralph Lauren's website). Where's the best place to buy these? Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
Georgetown is closed but you can special order a pair through Farinelli's on this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=110475
RRL is RL's baby line and prefers that it has a toned-down following hence no online sales, minimal boutique retailers, etc. The better place to find RRL is at your local RRL store; the best
place to get RRL is through Farinelli's as Mauro can order you any specific item you request.
