    Update on my RRLS

    So I like my straight jeans a lot. Quality of the denim is great and I think I am getting the fading results over time. The issue is after a wash and wearing them out,t the come to fit perfectly in the seat/thigh, but the waist stretches too big, and the leg opening gets kind of big. The jean seems to get longer too (i.e. after a wash, I barely need a cuff, but after wearing it 5 or 6 times, I need an inch of cuff).

    For my next buy, I am debating about

    - Buying the low straight in the same size
    - Sizing down on the straight

    I like the idea of having a straight fit and a low straight to alternate the fits...

    Other than the rise is there a significant difference between the straights and low straights in terms of slimness? Is it a noticeable amount?

    The thighs seem about one inch slimmer on my low straights than they do on my regular straight legs. It is pretty noticeable.

    I bought the low straight recently after having tried on the regular straight. Same waste size - the straights were much slimmer. Fit me perfect. that said, the regular straight was a pretty decent fit, but I preferred the low.

    From what I gather in this thread the straight cut is similar to the new slimmer 501 cut right? Damn, if the low straight is that much slimmer I'm guessing they look pretty skinny?

    I have a pair of low straights that should get to me this weekend. I'll let you know how they compare to the straights when they arrive.

    My straights are a 30, and honestly I could wear a 29 with their rise, but the low straights are a 32, which should work for me if the measurements I've received are correct. It may turn out that I should have gone with a 31 on the low straights though.

    The fit on the straights is not that slim. It reminds me of 50s lee models. The low straights are slimmer throughout from what I hear.

    The only jeans I own (12 pairs). I wash them frequently on a cold delicate cycle, inside out. The fit and the fade gets better with each wash.

    Haven't seen very many fade pics for RRL other than whodini's. Can you post a couple in the RRL thread?

    I have a pair of 33 RRL Slim Fits, however I've run into the big thighs-small waste problem that is so common among those looking to get good-fitting jeans. The legs fit perfect and I got them for a sick deal, however the waste is simply too big. Worth the money to get the waste altered properly, or should I move on?

    Big thighs/small waist = not going to find any slim fit jeans that fit well everywhere. You either deal with the bigger waist or try to get it altered, which can be a crapshoot depending on the skill of your tailor.

    I have a BNWT pair of Low Straights in Spring Creek 2 wash for sale on eBay and they don't get any attention at all. I'm selling them for the price of a pair of ordinary Levi's (no LVC, nothing special) here (around 80 pounds).

    I know eBay US is flooded with these, but here in Europe they are hard to find, and if you order from the US it will go through customs and it will take longer to arrive. And it's not like they are a weird size, it's W33 L34.

    Is it because noone knows about RRL in Europe?

    Is RRL moving the production of their jeans to China? My recent order from RalphLauren.com came today for the first time ever I am seeing made in China RRL jeans. I know a lot of the chinos and other products are made overseas but I have been buying RRL jeans for 10 years now and this is the first time I seeing Chinese made jeans.
