    Hi All,

    Quick question - do RLPL pants run true to size? Or are they vanity sized upwards?

    Thanks in advance.

    On the forward pleat plants I find they run true to size, but the flat front ones I usually go up 1 size because of the thighs. If you have muscular thighs go up one size.

    True to size, in my opinion - the tagged size is always very close to the actual internal waist (for instance, the RLPL size 28 double-forward pleated pair I have for sale measure at 28.25" internal waist).

    Though the point about very muscular thighs needing to size up with some makes of flat fronts sounds about accurate to me. I ran into the same problem with Brioni and needed a little retailoring done to get a pair of trousers to fit at the thighs despite the waist being nearly perfect.

    I have even gone up a size on a few pairs of the forward pleated trousers. As a side-note, it's great when you can get them on sale too!
