    I`ve got a RRL Straight Leg from that seller. One rivet has lost after few days wearing. It`s a very poor comunication with that seller besides that. One word - Russian roulette!

    If anyone is looking for a pair of camo cargo pants, I definitely recommend the Camo Cotton Surplus Cargo Pant. Very nice, high quality, attention to detail medium weight cargo pants. The fit is in between a low-straight and straight fit, definitely not baggy. The leg openings are 8", so not too big there. I went with 32/32 which is what I wear in the low-straight. They have adjustable buckle tabs which helps you dial in a nice fit at the waist. I also considered the olive Regiment Cargo Pant. The olive ones are definitely more versatile. Actually, even right before I took the tags off the camo ones yesterday, I debated on exchanging for the olive ones. It came down to how,I was going to wear these, so off went the tags. And the camo ones are made with ripstop material so I can beat them up more. Here is a quick pic...

    In a 6 month time frame, I would have not washed these as much as you did.

    There is no way I could have "not" washed them. They smell too bad after 3-4weeks for me personally.

    Either I wear them more than most people or other people just have lower olfactory standards.

    I do everything - bicycle, hike, walk my dogs, along with the daily grind, I'm very active in them.

    I cannot emphasize strongly enough that you should wash your jeans when they're dirty, they smell bad, &c. The 'don't wash for six months' ethos that Nudie pushes (and other companies parrot) is kind of ridiculous (kind of like sizing down to ball-crushing and movement-constricting levels) and a sure-fire method to develop premature crotch blow-outs.

    Jeans look great, btw.

    Gonna have to echo the above sentiments: wash your jeans when they're filthy and smelly. Also, I'd recommend a 30-45 minute cold soak before breaking in a new pair. As I understand it, the starch takes away from the longevity of jeans (leads to early blowouts, etc.), and soaking them, even if only for a short amount of time, removes the starch. Now, the counter-argument is that your jeans won't develop the same "sick fades," but I disagree with that, as cold water (I'd soak them in freezing water) will not release or loosen the indigo to the same extent a warm soak or hot soak will. A few brands (3Sixteen being one of them) agree with the pre-wear cold soak, but as always, it's a matter of preference.

    Those jeans look great! Would love to see how they look after another 6 months of intense use.

    We
    I'll give it to RRL as far as quality/durability goes. I could have never gone this far with a cheap pair of Levi's or something without the knees or crotch going. These are keeping up very well. I really don't see any signs of imminent damage/blowouts (knock on wood).

    I'm wearing the aforementioned jeans as I type ...actually having a RRL day - also sporting the tradesman shirt from this spring I just got from the sale...

    I'll try to update again in 3-6 months - hope they last - I'll think about repairs if they don't.

    I really wanted to love that jacket. The itchy wool, short length, and high pockets were all deal breakers.

    It's such a handsome piece. Nice pick up, man.

    Thanks man, its a "street" piece so I dont think a more refined wool like you see in their recent peacoat would really work with the vintage look of the cotton moleskin that makes up most of the jacket.

    Do you guys wear the same size jeans in raw / rigid / one wash & the washed distressed of the same fit?

    I'm trying to buy a pair of distressed slim fit but I have no chance of trying & return is also not an option for me because I have to proxy. I only have a pair of one wash.

    ANy inputs / comments would be much appreciated.

    I wear the same size in both raw and washed. I will admit the washed are a little bit slimmer nut its not really noticeable

    Yep, take it from me. I had a great pair of low straights that I had to buckle and wash b/c I would be very active in them and sweat quite a bit (with dancing). They got so bad they absolutely wreaked just after 3-4 months of wear. Freezer wouldn't work. I had to wash in hot wash and air dry in the sun - did this 2 times in 2-3 weeks just to get that stench out. Now, I rarely go a long time b/w washes if I sweat. If I'm just casually using them, sure, I can go 6-8 months without a wash, but many people don't wear them like that.

    Hey guys.
    Just bought these shorts on ebay.
    Realized after buying them that the ebay description says they were women's, and the seller says that they were listed as and billed to him as Women's by Ralph Lauren Corporate (whatever that means).

    Anyone know if these really are women's or not?

    I was thinking if I want to size up to have abit of room in the washed model as my one-wash fits snug on the waist but not uncomfortable.

    The color and length of mine look different though.
    The color is more of an OD green, not dark olive. (and definitely not faded black).
    Although, they in no way look like they could or should be women's.
