    That sounds about right.



    Quality is just as good if not better imo


    If so, they are very a good buy at ebay prices

    Is there a place online (not private seller) where you can get those selv. officer chinos? I really like the look of those.

    I was wrong about the items being 75% off instantly. I rarely make it up to the outlet and the few times I have been everything RRL was 75% off.

    I work in operations about 10 hours a week. I get sent different 'tasks' from corporate that help them gauge their stock of the top 10 items for each dept.

    Am I the only one that finds it funny that a lot of the shirts resell for more than or as much as a lot of jeans and though their MSRP is less and are made in China for the most part?

    Isolated examples aside, on average shirts are cheaper than jeans on ebay

    I really hope you like them. They'd been sitting in my closet because they are are too big for me and I didn't have the heart to sell them. But I decided it was better to let someone enjoy them than let them languish.

    Thanks, man.

    Not yet. I just paid for them. Early next week. I'm stoked for these. I needed to up my chino game. Been lacking for years. I hope they aren't TOO heavy so I can wear in even the most humid days.

    Does the officer chino just come in variations of khaki/tan? Is navy floating around?

    That's true. I think two reasons: 1. there is often just a lot more supply of specific jeans than shirts. 2. I kind of think that beyond the small population of people who are really particular about their jeans, they just don't stand out that much. Jeans pretty much look alike to most folks. But shirts easily look unique. I can see someone who does not know the RRL brand thinking "that's a cool shirt!" when they see a picture online. But that same person will not appreciate the differences in jeans.

    going off of what KMD said, you only need a couple pairs of bottoms because the jeans play more of a supporting role. You dont want the pant to stand out for the wrong reasons so most of the jeans will look similar. No reason to buy more than a handful. I have about 8 pairs of RRL pants/jeans:
    • Selvedge Chino
    • Alaska Workpants
    • Catalog 2 Workpants
    • Slim Raw Icon
    • Slim Boot leg Dark Wash
    • Slim Boot 1 wash/fade
    • Straight Leg Distressed
    I probably have about 30 shirts because a) they are cheaper than jeans even if discounted less b) more variety in fabric, pattern, cut, l/s, s/s so im more likely to buy because I dont have it yet or I think it looks cool. Example: the plaidpatch flannels. I was blown away. Wanted to kop even though I dont need another shirt

    Nice details like distressed green canvas under the pocket flap and a wood button. Sweater hems & shawl are thicker and softer than I expected. Fit is right on. Awesome vintage finish on the brown cotton. The interior side tag is black with yellow lettering--the same as my wife's Black Label stuff.

    People still don't understand what selvedge is. Even the people who own selvedge RRL jeans needed me to point it out and explain. Their reason for buying the pant was that is was cheaper than the non selvedge Polo pairs when they went to the outlet or they liked the style/distressing more.

    You can get away with only one pair of RRL jeans and wear them everyday. The same is not true when talking about shirts.

    I also think the 280-340 dollar price MSRP for the jeans is very inflated. Even more so with the prices of the ones that have crazy distressing.

    RRL jeans are hard as hell to buy off ebay. I have had to send 7 pairs of chinos/jeans back so far that did not fit or were improperly measured. The shirts are a safer bet and have that 'must buy' aspect as well

    AWESOME.

    That is the way to do it - buy good stuff a little at a time.

    Man! I'm a proposal and .25 cents (how much do those toy rings cost again? [​IMG] ) away from being stuck with her forever!

    Also, both seats are usually down to prevent our cat from drinking that toilet water. haha.

    &...The shirt is real nice and WARM.
    I wasn't expecting a (jacket) though. But it was a good surprise.
