    RRL people tend to have a bit of the pretentious snob in them. What's that dude doing wearin a white t-shirt under that? Ugh.

    He doesn't look too bad, very relaxed spring look. Raw denim, chucks w. no socks, red chambray and white t.shirt is pretty basic stuff just a lil bit modernized.


    You know what I think it is, people hate the fact that J.Crew does a lot of what other higher brands do, but for a cheaper and more popularized audience. They do it well also, and they add their own touches. Hidden collar tab buttons ? check Mixing linen with chambray ? check Making the chambray a lil more fitting ? check

    Did I mention that I like my new red chambray shirt?

    PM me your address. I got a nice pair of used sneakers to mail you.

    Hey I think this was asked once, but do the vintage slim cords run any shorter then the straights? Thinking of getting a pair on sale, but need to know if they will fit me. The straight 34L where just barely long enough and if the slims run shorter I can't get them.

    Looks like the white Lightweight chino cargo short is getting no love or they have a ton in stock. Every other color is sold out.

    Does anyone know of any Utility Jacket alternatives? I'm thinking about picking it up in Shadow, but I'm on a super-budget. I'll probably pick it up anyway, because there isn't a thing about it I don't like, and it's relatively inexpensive at the moment.

    (Looking for a slim-fitting, utility-type jacket of medium weight.)

    http://www.luckybrand.com/Military-S...efault,pd.html

    Anyone know how it compares to the J. Crew version? (which is now not even listing small, damnit! should have gotten it when it was)




    i tried the lucky brand one on...

    and u def need to size down like 2 on that....i tried on a small and i wear a small in most shirts..and it was huge..they didnt have any smallers sizes on hand to test out

    i havent tried on the jcrew one yet

    +1. Specifically, I was hoping someone who owns them could give an estimate on the front rise. Cue Robert posting 4 times about why J. Crew > RRL.
