    I finally received my RRL bootcut from ebay. I'm quite happy with the purchase.

    I removed the tag on the back and it looks so much cleaner.

    Thanks guys, didn't think ralph lauren would be popular but those do look nice. I wonder if I can find some nice jeans somewhat like those with slightly wider measurements [​IMG]

    What size are you? and what size did you get? Did you remove the RRL stitching on the pocket too?

    True, and I don't know why it's on some and not others. The slims I got off ebay don't but the bootcuts I also got do. From the pics I've seen off other pairs (advan031's included) there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. Different years maybe? Same tags, though.

    Fit-wise they're not ball-breakers. Per SF'ers recommendations, I went 28x32 when I'm normally a 32x32 and they fit fine initially, although they were a little loose around the waist and tighter in the thighs which suggested to me they're meant to be worn lower on your waist since the rise is only 9". I don't really think of these as "slim", just well cut.

    Whodini, which pair are you talking about because I the Lowrise Bottcut that I tried on was too short and pretty tight. Which pair of the two that you own is tighter?

    The man asked for the slim RRL's so I responded.

    I wrote a msg earlier to advan031 saying that the measurements I've seen on 28x32 for both the slim and bootcut, the boot cut has a tighter fit at the waist by a good half inch, maybe more.

    But that's all measurements-wise. I still won't know until next week when I get home to actually compare the fit between the two.

    I usually wear 33 or 34 in Diesel and I got a 34 in RRL slim bootcut and when I measured the waist laid flat it was 17.5". I probably could have fit into 32 or 33 in these.

    The fit is idential to RRDS but I've noticed that the backpockets seat a bit higher than RRDS.

    from left to right:
    Paper Denim SLM's, RB 11 (still gawking at how much I paid for it; amazing construction/detailing though), Paul Frank Long Sleeve, Club Monaco Shirt, Another Club Monaco Shirt, Standard Cloth short sleeve shirt, Modern Amusement short sleeve (got it on sale at UO)

    I also purchased a nice military jacket from Club Monaco, it fits perfectly and is really warm for upcoming fall.
