    Am in the old predicament of "don't know how they fit, but see an Ebay auction I may not be able to pass up" [​IMG] Curious on the fit of these- slim, standard, loose, ankle taper, etc. Thanks...

    In general, I find RL pants fit a little loose in the waist. The waist generally has to be taken in a little for me. Otherwise, depends on the cut. The flat fronts are obviously a bit slimmer, but definitely still roomy. I like RLPL a lot.

    I find them to be a much slimmer fit then regular pants but I rather like that kind of fit now. Worth buying unless you're well above your optimum weight.

    There are quite a few models, aren't there? I find them to be rather full in the seat and thigh, and I am by no means super-thin. I have pretty solid muscular legs, though not stout. Just to compare, I find some of the Barbour moleskins of old to be slightly to tight for my thighs. And RLPL are a lot large in the thigh and seat than those.

    Horace is correct, there's any number of models.

    I picked up a NWT pair a while back, relatively high-waisted, side tabs, with slim legs, but past seasons have produced everything up to Oxford Bags.

    When buying jeans/trousers on eBay, I generally ask for specifics: Inseam, outseam, width at leg opening, width at knee, and so on.

    Jared -- fuller. They use the Jared model for most of the OTR Purple Label suits.

    I would agree with this, at least for the RLPL slacks and suits that I have. For my taste, too, they seem to sit low on the waist (and, therefore, I always have the tailor let out the crotch as much as they can).
