    The Official RRL Thread

    Just got given this supposedly RRL Western; I compared it to my other buffalo ones all from the broadway store or RL.com and they all have a country of origin on the neck tag with the size, but this one only has size. it's also the only one I've ever seen with a spare poncho button in a bag...

    Hi Ben! I just (as in, an hour or so ago) received a cashmere cardigan and a camelhair cardigan from you. After having a browse through here I was a bit concerned the upper arms would be too baggy or the fit would be weird... but let's put it this way: I haven't taken the first one off since...

    Anyone have experience buying from The Rake?

    Bought two pairs of Rubinacci trousers from them a couple months back. Didn't have much of an idea of how they worked, assumed they had some sort of stock on hand. They did, and my parcel shipped within 4 days. Lo and behold, only one pair of trousers arrived. Called to ask - took multiple...

    The Official RRL Thread

    I've been on the RRL denim train for years and I've only seen a handful of pairs of Cone. The vast majority of RRL rigid are the proprietary 15oz (or so) woven in Japan.

    I'm pretty sure RRL splits the drops into 4 seasons rather than two. Spring is online now, but summer is not

    Have you tried Left Field? I did. I liked them. They use weird (read: interesting but not things you'd think of) denims and have nice construction. I still prefer RRL, but it's a good option for your criteria.

    The Official RRL Thread

    The heavily washed stuff tears - but it would tear just the same if I had achieved the same wash through wearing. Granted that means I would have more wears per $, but also taken more time to get the same look. The buttons falling off is an issue if you buy your garments tight. I've had...

    Rios of Mercedes. From my experience with them, good construction and materials. Unlike RM Williams, their products do not reek of glue when you receive them.

    The Straight Taper fits about the same, but I haven't tried on 3Sixteen's CT for a while now. I could see RRL bringing the straight taper into the fold as a regular item but it was Limited last season as a raw indigo piece and it's limited this season as a raw undyed.

    The Official RRL Thread

    About crotch blowouts/early wearing - I've had *a lot* of RRL pants and only two of them had any crotch blowouts early. Both were quite heavily washed cargos from years back and I just darned them, seemed like what they would've done in the field (?) and kept wearing. I do have a general 'if you...

    Even the photos on instagram of that indigo rough out jacket make it look nice. But damn that's gotta be pricey... I mean, sure, collectible value, but I couldn't justify it :( True vintage RRL is probably easier to get and cheaper?
