    They'll fade very similar to the officer's chinos. Its a subtle fade, but a fade none the less. I haven't really started wearing mine, but they are a similar fabric to the left field brown selvedge duck chinos, of which mine are looking pretty good. I think it depends how you want them to look. If you let them fade they'll take on a more relaxed look.
    The downside to not washing them is they'll get dirty and stains, mud, etc will stand out more. So you could go either way. Just a warning, if you decided to treat them like raws and happen to get them them dirty, don't use one of those stain sticks or try to just scrub it off. It will create an unevenness to the coloring.

    I would say go for it if the added details justify the price for you. The cinch probably does make these look a little more old fashioned though.

    I plan to wear these in the same manner as my current pair of chino pants. My style is mostly preppy/traditional, so I'm almost always in a shirt and tie. Sometimes with braces. I sew in buttons for braces into all of my pants on the inside or outside of the waist. I own 4 pairs of braces from RRL so I like to have the option to wear them when I feel like it. If one didn't ever wear braces it would probably make more sense to just buy the standard RRL officer chino if one was in the market for a high end pant.

    As gnu said, fades are possible but much more subtle. Not sure how much whiskering is possible but places with continuous stress or abrasion will show. I think continuous washing may have the effect of masking any wear or fading?

    I believe those are the limited-edition olive slim fits from a few seasons ago (there's a more recent version that's much more green). I have a pair, and they're mostly brown with a hint of green to them.

    On the officers? I do wish they had a slanted pocket for ease of use, but I've grown accustom to them.

    Hi all, how did you/ would you size on the canvas clyde's for a good fit, not tight nor too loose? I'm pretty much a 32 across a mix of brands give or take.

    Much appreciated.

    Could use this advice as well. Do they measure TTS? That is, a size 34 = 34" waist?

    Has anyone seen the Heavy-Weight Plaid Shirt in a store recently? It must have sold out online and I'm looking for a M or L...

    This shirt is ridiculously nice. It may be my favorite item from the Winter collection. The fabric is incredibly soft and rich, and the patterns are really intricate and well-layered. I talked to a couple of women when I wore it the other day, and they were just staring at my shirt while I was talking to them and hardly hearing a word I said. I think I gained some insight into what life is like for women with attractive breasts. ;)

    The shirt is definitely slim in the chest, but the fabric is sort of springy. I generally wear a Medium in RRL comfortably, but this shirt felt almost too snug. However, I stayed with the medium as I fully expect it will loosen up. The other measurements on the large would have been too much if I had sized up.

    Best of luck in your search. This is one of those items that keeps you coming back to the RRL brand.

    I came across a pair of selvedge officer's chino. The waist is an inch or two, too big. Should I wear it for a while before getting the waist taken in or would y'all with experience recommend getting the waist slimmed before puttig serious wear in? Thanks

    does anyone know if RRL uses different size or position of fading on the washed jeans, depending on inseam length? specifically, if there would be any difference in placement of knee fades between 30 and 32 inseam

    Yes, I agree with that.
    The fabric contains only 3% percent of cashmere but it amazingly soft.
    I'm normally between M and L in shirts with M tending to be a snug fit and got this one in L. It fits great by itself or with a shirt underneath.

    Pretty much what I did, although I actually think I saw it on sale at some point, I just failed to grab it for some reason.
