    Shouldn't have used hot water, it sets the stain. You can try soaking the stain in dish detergent. That usually gets it out but I don't know about now.

    That also comes from the same woman that shrinks everything she touches. Jk.

    Ive read shampoo could work. Work a small amount and let it sit for a bit and rinse.

    Namor, I've had really good luck getting grease stains out with old fashioned homemade lye soap. I don't make it of course, but you should be able to pick some up somewhere. i wet the stain and rub the bar into the stain, then wash in the machine.

    I actually prefer the straight pockets it seems to make them a little less casual and more appropriate for the office, IMO, on days I'm unable to wear denim. I also think that the straight pockets are easier to get stuff in and out of than the normal pockets you would find on denim.


    I agree with Froosh and others that you shouldn't have used hot water. You may still be able to get the stain out since you haven't run them through the dryer (which also would work to set the stain). My wife seems to have good luck with good ole Spray 'n Wash. She'll spray it on a stain and let it soak for a couple of days in cold water and it seems to work. She recently bought a 40-year-old table cloth on Etsy (her vice of choice) which had a couple of big stains on it and her method cleaned it right up. I'd advise testing the Spray 'n Wash on an inside piece of the fabric for color fastness first of course but these chinos seem to be pretty heavy-duty material and I doubt that would be an issue.

    You can always take them to a dry cleaner as well since most have a whole array of spot cleaners and will likely have one specifically for proteins and foodstuffs. Good luck. Hopefully you can fix these. If not, it will just add to their character.

    What is the general sizing advice on the RRL Officer Chino? I have a pretty TTS 32" waist. I played it safe and ordered a 32 and the pants are swimming on me; I have at least 1.5" of excess fabric. I am thinking about sizing down 2, and ordering a 30 waist. Has anyone successfully sized down 2? Or is it better to size down one and just take in the waist later?

    I have actually had good luck with automotive type hand cleaners. They are meant to cut automotive grease, and can work with clothing (ex. http://goophandcleaner.com/)
    Note: Don't use the heavy duty ones with added pumice. This will likely exacerbate the fade you are getting from scrubbing. On the other hand, you may find that fading from a distressed greasy sausage is part of your sartorial appeal.
