    I'd like to know as well. I ordered a pair of Low Straight Dark-Wash denims. Same deal made in the USA from imported fabrics. This will be my first pair of RRL jeans. Totally looking forward to it! Can we assume that it's Japanese selvedge denim since the fabrics are imported? Here is an old article that may be of interest...

    http://www.rawrdenim.com/2013/12/the-rrl-rundown-what-you-need-to-know/

    It states..."Each pair of RRL denim is constructed of Cone Mills selvedge denim that was developed exclusively for the brand that ranges in weight from 11.5 Oz. to 15.5 Oz."

    I'm having an interesting issue with my officer chinos. I've had them about a year now and they've stretched from a 32 to a 34 and the seat/butt area looks huuuuge and just looks like it pops out when I'm standing straight up. is this an easy fix for a tailor to bring in the seat?

    Yes- I had a similar situation with my officer chinos. I had to buy them big in the waist to accommodate for thighs, so I had my tailor bring in the waist. Because of the weight and thickness of the material, this caused serious diaper butt, so she then took in the seat and the crotch and now they're just right.

    Most of the trousers are busted-seam construction, so it's relatively easy to tweak the fit through the waist and seat. I had the seat of both a pair of officer chinos and a pair of clydes taken in to address the same issue.

    It's kind of strange how descriptions and details morph from catalog to online. In the catalog, the Quinn Jacket was described as based on an Ike Jacket, with a trim, short fit. Online, it's dubbed a Moto Jacket, and there's no mention of Ike or trim, short fits. This seems to happen with a lot of RRL items. RRL online, moreover, never gives descriptions about how jackets fit, even when those descriptions are given in the catalog. They provide it for bottoms, but not tops.

    I have seen them in store. They are grey with a bluish tint to them. They are nice mid weight jean, im guessing around 14oz, made of raw Japanese selvedge. i definitely plan on scooping these up when the first sale hits. Imo they are nice spring, early summer jean. Also, I'm kind of surprised they retail for 300 as opposed to the normal 340 for Japanese Raw. They should break in nicely, doubt you will get any ridiculous fades though.

    Nice pickup! I prefer light to medium weight jeans. I may pick up a pair of Low Straight Dark-Wash jeans that I referenced in my post above.

    Marshall jacket came in. Wow so warm and love the style. Price was terrific with the sale from my SA. However one annoying thing. The bottom of the back hangs out. I don't know if I will live with this or return.

    Is that meant to be like that? The jacket looks nice though.

    Jacket is so nice. I'm sure it's not supposed to be this way. If I adjust it looks good but I don't want to adjust this everytime I wear it multiple times as I walk and get in and out of the car Etc.

    I also have this Marshall jacket and I got it cheap during the sales. Don't you think they should have used a heavier twill material and not this flimsy gabardine since the faux fur lining is very thick. The material of the collar and reinforcing details are real shearling and leather but the main material looks less substantial. The zipper pulls are very sharp too and I'm afraid that if I move my hands the wrong way that it can easily snag and rip the main material of the jacket.

    My jacket's lining doesn't peak out like that. Maybe it just needs ironing or a manufacture defect with excess lining material on seam allowance. Easily fixed but it might cost you $20 bucks

    Can you fit your hands into the hand warmer pockets?

    Btw I bought a marshall flight jacket and it was a defect too. The triangles were uneven. Yes the back is a defect. Reminds me of the hiker parka i got from Gant. The back pops out because of the air in the quilt lining though the cause of this is different.

    Thanks for the replies. A shame as I do like this jacket a lot. I will have to return.
