    blkblk, any idea if you'll be able to get more 31's in? If not, I might go for those 32's.

    For those with pairs from both runs being discussed, are any other differences other than weight and sizing noticeable? Are the colors identical? Can you see a difference in the weave of the twill? I'm just curious if these are essentially the same pants, or if it is worth it to own both.....

    Just got my officer chino today (28x32) :slayer: it's indeed lighter than last season (everyone was saying last season was 10.5oz ), it's 9 point something oz (wearing them right now, to lazy to take it off and take a look)...

    Not from Context, jimmyfingers proxyed for me from RL store. For some reason the 28s were only available in 30 and 32, so I grabbed anyway. Guess Context got all the 34 inseams ones (though the smallest Context and Blake had were 29 not 28). Honestly if these do stretch I think I can even go down to 27...

    Weird, I thought in-store chinos were 10.5 oz for this season?
    Guys what's your low straight (the vanity sized ones by 2" or 3") sizing vs selvedge chino sizing?

    I thought the old season was 10.5 this season was 9.23? Vanity size 2" for me.

    looking good, gents. the rrl chino is extremely photogenic. I love how one pic is super casual, while the other is a little dressier but the end results are both great.

    Clee's pants look so high rise compared to the other two fits...

    I already pack all my stuff so no measure tap, but I am pretty sure it's not "high rise". It's going to be khakki to dress pants' kind of rise (definitely not low rise for sure), probably somewhere around 10 in front rise if you ask me to guess (I am about 5"7')

    Also I am usually in the suit crowd, so probably unconsciously pulling them up all the time...
