    I agree with you that a lot people tend to focus on raw or dark denim too much. M personally, I prefer washed denim. There is much lees hassle, I don't have to worry about sizing issue due to stretching and i don't have to worry about my jeans bleeding indigo everywhere. During this most recent sale I picked up a pair slim fit Folsom wash jeans and i also have a pair of slim boot-cut spring wash and i was thinking of picking up one more pair of light wash jeans or a pair of grey wash jeans. I started to lean more towards the grey because the pics on line of the Utica jeans didn't look that much different from the Folsom wash jeans that I have.Furthermore, the last time I checked the Ralph Lauren Store in Lenox Mall they didn't have any Utica Jeans in for me to do my own comparison.

    That jacket could easily fit into a 21x14x5 even in 2XL. I wouldn't be worried about it being damaged if it's folded tightly, that leather is thick and well oiled it will not form creases very easily and even if there is a crease it's a leather jacket that will get lots of creases in it anyway, or you can rub conditioner in, read some tutorials on how to get wrinkles out of leather, it should take out most creases.

    I myself am restoring an old RRL oilcloth jacket and have recently ordered some reproofing cream. Kind of excited about the DIY aspect as I have never reproofed a waxed jacket before.

    They shipped my most recent jacket in a garment bag folded in half. It came through safely, but back it goes.

    There is a RRL store at Central. WDSG at Wan Chai carries a bit as well.

    Having shipped RRL leather jackets before that jacket will def fit in a box that size with sleeves folded across and the jacket folded In half. Never had a problem with a crease either

    Also that is a great Jkt. Tried it on and it was the best fit. Just didn't have the money at the time to purchase.

    probably more like a 31.5" - 32", although each garment can vary.

    I've got a pair of tagged size 31 slim and the waist measures 34 (returning them). You think the straight (which I thought was a looser fit) tagged 1 inch smaller would have a waist 2-2.5 inches smaller?

    I find the actual sizing on RRL to be 2" higher than tagged, ymmv. Both of those appear to have extra material in the waist that a tailor can let out so I wouldn't worry too much about sizing.

    Going OT here, but does anyone know if vintage_rl_store is on the forum? I believe RRL CLOTHING once said, and I'm paraphrasing, there is nothing worse than paying full price when you could have just reached out to a fellow forum member.

    Got a pair of Washington boots today and I love them. Any recommendations on what(or if) I should treat them with? Going to wear them in the snow quite a bit
