    I got an email saying that Barney's @ The Grove (and a handful of other retail locations) would be carrying RRL as well. Hopefully that means we can get it on sale, haha.

    So between HTC, that Melrose store, American Rag, and Barney's... that area is pretty damn covered.


    Funny. I bought that Buffalo plaid shawl collar cardi last season.... only from the Blue Label line. Weird

    Are any RRL jeans unsanforized? I just purchased a pair and the colorway is noted as "Rigid". If memory serves me right, this color is the same as LEVIS 501 STF jeans, which are shrink to fit.

    They have released a pair of STF jeans, but they were clearly labeled as such and greatly oversized. Retailed for $295.00, and did not sell well at all.

    Color has nothing to do with anything, pal.

    just to clear something up:
    1) The slim fit's run more or less true-to-size.

    2) The straight leg's run quite a bit larger (2 sizes?) than their tagged size.

    3) There is no such thing as a slim straight leg.

    Am I way off base? I went to the soho store and found the pair i tried on in size 30 to be too large in the waist, I usually am a 31, and i think they were the straight legs.

    It depends on what season/what cut of the jeans you're looking at.

    In my experience:

    1. The slim's run true to size or a size large, depending on where you fall within a given size.

    2. Yes around there.

    3. A slim straight leg is a jean that's slim through the thigh and street from the knee down. The closest RRL cut to this would probably be either the slim boot or their new cut (which I haven't seen).

    Thanks for the response. I was asking whether RRL had a slim straight leg (i know such a jean exists, haha), i'll have to look into the new cut. I'm pretty sure the straight leg is the right cut for me (it does have a slight taper, IIRC), but they didn't have it in my size.

    New cut? I might have to make a trip down to RRL to check this out.

    Did you get a chance to wear the new cut? Any impressions?

    I have a question regarding RRL but not their Denim.

    I bought a pair of RRL Chinos from a web merchant but they don't fit. I don't know if they are this season or a previous season. I would imagine, however, that any Ralph Lauren merchandise system is very complex.

    Could I return these, without a RRL or Ralph Lauren receipt, to a RRL or Ralph Lauren store in NYC for store credit?

    If the tag is still attached you could easily try.
    Just say they were a gift.
    I suspect they will 'scan' as having been sold from an outlet store for a price significantly less than what is on the tag.
    You will likely be then told to f*ck off (ie, return it to an outlet store).

    Current generation RRL slim fits from SUFU. I can't wait until mine get to this point.
