RRDS advice for double-cuffer

    My birthday is coming up at the end of July and I may pull the trigger on a pair of Regular Ralf Dry Selvage. I will be buying them sight unseen.

    I normally double-cuff my jeans. Not big fat cuffs, just one cuff of the seam, then cuffed again. Since I normally wear straight leg, this looks fine, if you're the sort of person who likes that look, which I am.

    1. Is the bootcut of the RRs so pronounced that it will look silly with a double cuff?
    2. I wear a 32x34 in Levi's 501s after they're shrunk pretty hard - washed, then dried on hot. That gives me a cuff that just brushes the top of my Chuck Taylors, and jeans that are reasonably tight but don't smash my junk. So I'm not sure what size RRDS to get. Obviously I will not be washing them and drying them on hot. I figure a 30 waist will probably be right for a reasonably tight fit, but I'm not really sure what size leg to get for a double cuff, and I haven't seen it addressed. Again, won't ever be drying these, and I'm assuming since they're sanforized that I'm not going to have honeycombs on my butt cheeks after the first warm soak 6 months from now.
    3. Do the RRDS look all right with dry cleaning after 6 months instead of washing? What would you say are the differences in the effect?

    I can live with the legs being a bit long. It's not going to freak me out if my foldups brush the floor and get a hole or anything, I'll just patch them. But I don't want to spend what is a ludicrous amount of money to me on jeans and have them look, well, ludicrous.

    Thanks as always!

    You're thinking too much about this.

    Get at 30x34 if you want a tight fit.
    Get a 31x34 if you want a loose fit.

    Nudie doesn't make a 36" inseam that I know of.

    I wear the RRDS with a double cuff. About 2 inches of cuff (4 inches of fabric total). They look pretty good, the flare isn't too pronounced.

    me too. agree the bootcut is so slight there is no oddness when cuffed
