    I just got my RRL jeans from the Polo.com sale. The tag says made in Japan (they love jeans there) and there are silly instuctions like dont wash for 90 days and dry clean only. I initially tried them on then they were like cardboard. That said, they fit, and the denim is unique -- so I washed them in cold water to loosen them up. http://www.polo.com/product/index.js...entPage=family Now they are the coolest jeans I have ever owned... work perfectly with a t-shirt or a dress shirt and a blazer and a pair of loafers. Highly recomend to those who enjoy 'hip' fashion, not for those sold on 501's. But the fit true to size and am considering another pair.

    I am glad they are resurrecting the double rl brand. I had a pair of jeans I bought in 92 or so from them. I absolutely loved them until I grew out of them. The Rhinelander Mansion and a couple of other select stores were the only place to get them back in the day.

    I did see a couple of weeks ago on polo.com they were to start selling them. I will have to check them out.

    Enjoy.

    Nice. I've been interested in those. They look great. Denim seems of high quality. How flared is the bootcut? How high is the rise?

    lmao, LA Guy, I think we tried to move the topic at the same time. But I won. Look my post is in before yours.

    I am the ultimate moderator.

    Sure Brian. But you wrote ONE word. I wrote say, 10 times as much. And you beat me by the wire. Wow, it's like you can run the 100 m in the same time it takes for me to run the 800. Yeah, you're much faster than I am.

    Haha. Make all the excuses you want, but it doesn't change the fact that you my friend were out-moderated.

    Um, 800 m is a marathon? You need to do a little more endurance training Debaser. It'll help you finish up those last 15 m better [​IMG]

    I rarely run over 400m at any given time...but after a 400m sprint you don't feel like doing much else [​IMG] By the way, have you tried a pair of those Nike Free running shoes? Ugly as hell, but awesome. We can move this to PM or another thread if you'd like.

    Back on topic....

    RRL: this cut fits like a true size vs the slim cut which is tapered at the ankle euro style. Cool too, but I like thse more.

    Not flaired, just straight leg.

    LAGuy, BrianSD - where are your opinions on the quality of these jeans? I'm guessing not good since neither of you have said anything.

    I am going to go ahead and assume they are dry - selvedge?

    I haven't commented because I haven't tried on, nor even seen, these jeans, and can't really contribute escept to say that they do look pretty good on the website, except for the irritating RRL patch. I would like to know what weight of denim is used, and how they well they hold up.

    I like those. I've seen some RRL jeans made in Japan before, in very small sizes, like 26 and 28 waist - I assume for women. They were pretty impressive. I didn't see whether they were selvage but the ones I saw were washed and had some relatively tasteful distressing.

    I have a couple pairs of Ralph Lauren Polo jeans and they are actually quite decent. Not overly distressed (I actually prefer more conservative distressing) and not selvage, but the denim seems to be decent quality, they fit great (true to size) and they don't have shallow girly pockets like APC. For $80-90, they're a pretty good deal.

    I realize these are not RRL.... So this post is off topic.

    Not far off topic. I agree about the Polo jeans except that most of their cuts are too relaxed for me. I really like the cut of those ones the OP posted. Might have to find myself a pair of those to try on.

    Which will require an airplane trip, because Seattle sucks for that sort of thing.
