    Just finished some after work shopping... I bought a pair of Raf Simons slim grey wool trousers.
    Are those Fall/Winter? Edit: How slim is it around the leg?

    Stazy- That raf mainline or raf by raf? The measurements seem spot on for what i prefer to wear and the color looks nice. Good pickup.

    raf by raf.


    How do they feel? The fit on that stuff is generally solid, but the materials are reallllyyyy inconsistent. I've felt things that felt like shit, and others that actually feel pretty good for the (sale) price. I have a pair of charcoal slacks that feel really nice that i might sell because they're a bit big. Similar measurements to your's. I was at a barneys feeling some of the other raf by raf stuff and somethings felt iffy.

    To be honest, I'm really sure how to judge material quality. The pants are slightly itchy when I wear them but nothing too bad. When I feel the material in my hand it's really soft and almost silky. My mom, an experienced seamstress, is far more knowledgeable when it comes to this kind of stuff. I'll get her opinion. I'll post the fabric content when I get home.

    Thrifted safety shoes. Steel toed and something-resistant soles. Very little wear but they seem to be pretty old, I can't imagine any foreman walking around in these today.

    stazy- I don't really need that much detail on them. I just think it's cool that you found a pair of Raf bys that are solid material wise, since they differ a lot. At first when you said Raf, i was wondering if you were ballin' buying mainline Raf Simons as soon as it hit the stores.

    Socal- You have no idea.....
