    Looks just like a normal Grandad collar (is that the correct term, don't think its a round collar). You do get some shirts that have detachable collars but I'm pretty sure it would be supplied. If it doesn't say anything in the description I would think its supposed to be worn as is.

    Went yesterday, PSR rack was gone. No RRL in sight at the polo store. RL store had some boots left but mostly size 7.5 and 11 in Brunnel and size 10 plainview boots. A few pairs of morris boots too. Nothing priced worth getting.

    I'm not sure if they fit in RRL nomenclature. They have that unique pocket/leather design on the back that I've hardly ever seen. I just know that I have (had) a pair and the leg opening was huge but they had a nice clubbing sort of fit up top--fitted but also low rise. Not that I would go to a club, but I digress; that's just what someone told me. I had the leg opening made to 7" and they just hemmed it 7" shorter instead. I cut them at the knee and cuffed them, and now they're just casual shorts.

    RRL aren't converting all their regular denim to Cone are they? I thought it was just going to be select styles... Please someone tell me this whole US made denim thing is just a "phase".

    Nothing beats $115 over retail for heavily used jeans.

    But hey he said retail price is higher than rrl. Maybe all the sweat increases original price of jeans

    Probably it's ubiquity and lack of prestige.

    Plus nothing fades like Japanese denim.. with superior depth and color variations. If you have any decent Cone denim fades you want to show off I'd love to see it but I've never seen any great looking LVC fades.

    I don't even wear jeans to get crazy fading. I like Japanese RRL denim because it feels amazingly substantial and wears exceptionally well. All the Cone denim I've owned (and it hasn't been much) just hasn't felt nearly as good. Seems like an inferior product. The recent RRL Cone denim (which I've seen and felt) does not change my mind. If Cone made denim as well as Okayama, I'd be all for it.

    But of course, it all comes down to personal tastes and preferences...

    I've got to agree. I bought a few LVC jeans, baldwin and tellason... RRL is better. Not so much other products though. The shirts vary wildly in quality, with the low end of RRL shirts comparable to well done GAP shirts in terms of quality. They still cost $200 though...

    Yea RRL jeans spoiled me. I can't wear any of my other jeans anymore. Crate (Cone denim I believe) and Naked & Famous.
