Crossposting from the Random Fashion Thoughts thread because I interrupted the gothninja/ Will Smith discourse over there...

The only RO pants I have ever owned are used ones I bought off grilled. I recently bought a new pair (same style, same size) and the elastic is uncomfortably tighter in the waist when compared. If I stretch both out to their max, the measurements are the same. It's just tighter when compressed, as if the elastic material used in the waist is stronger. Will it become more relaxed with use over time? Is that your experience with RO? Do sizes shift among seasons? Should I size up?

Thanks in advance.

Looking for some help identifying the season this jacket is from. Anyone…? It’s lamb/cotton/nylon combo outer. Thanks! 1ED21E96-D238-468D-B1DB-D26194EE93D2.jpeg C81907D1-4A91-4165-B465-D689C0C2B90D.jpeg 7A291339-E8A6-4F25-AB4A-4CE762CA7832.jpeg

Just got a pair of the black duke cut jeans. Went with my true size and they fit great, exactly how I want them to, albeit slightly uncomfortable because they're a brand new pair of 13.75oz 100% denim of course.

Style code is DL20F1399-BLKJP. It's a pair with the black leather patch like this:



Basically just want to know how they'll age. Will these fade? And I assume they'll be more comfortable but figured I'd double check with some Rick heads just to make sure. I'd hate to realize I made a mistake later on.

Question on geobaskets: is there any significance to whether the inner tongue tag is reverse or not? I figure it's a seasonal thing... I see the current geo's on his website have the reverse tag.

Also, any sure way to identify which season a pair a geo's are from? Maybe the numbers on the zipper protector?

First part of the code is the season. E means Estate which is summer, W means winter. This means a pair with W18 would be from FW18 for example.

Thank you. Doesn’t appear the pair I received have that referencing.

Ah that's weird, I've never seen a code like that before. Are those bought from a retailer or second hand? Hope someone more knowledgeable than me can help you out.

Secondary. Everything appears to check out from what I can tell. If not I have ability to return. I can add more pics if people have specifics shots that’ll confirm authenticity.
