    Can someone explain to me why some RRL jeans are so much more expensive than other RRL jeans (I am from the suit wearing crowd, so don't shoot me for asking dumb question, please...)

    So I was in the London RRL store today, saw something I really liked (which the sales guy told me is recycled denim) for 345 pounds, and something I like but not as much as the first one for 125 pounds (which is not recycled according to the sales guy).

    The recycled one is low straight cut while the cheaper one is slim straight cut (ridiculously tapperd by my usual standard, the only other jeans I have is Levi 514 that I got for 30 dollars god knows when, 5 years ago?).

    I was checking this ones on ebay in waist 30 (which seems to work the best for me, I am like in between 30 and 31 in dress pant)

    even their claimed retail price is all over the place. What's so special about the last one for example? What additional am I paying for?

    Well, the third link ebay seller, is known for marking their prices way up... then tricking the public, with a mark-down.... to get you to think you are saving..

    I was surprised at reading their negative posts towards their buyers who left negative feedback.. no way to treat a customer.

    http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...s=negative_365

    I would never buy from a seller that has no respect for the customer.

    Get your jeans from a RRL store, this way you can try them on...

    Good luck

    Someone tell me the difference between raw RRL jeans i tried on in Japan and ones i tried on in NY? They were def different from each other but the guy working in Japan didnt exactly speak the best english to tell me what was different about them. All i could get out of him was they didnt make anything below Size 31 yet in NY i tried on a 29. For the record im talking about Raw Slim Straights

    It is always best to be able to try on the jeans, because they seem to vary in their fit.
    OR, When you are back to the States... Call any RRL store, for your size, this way you know you can return them.... or plan a visit to the Ralph Lauren Mansion on Madison, they have the best selection of all the stores... make a day-trip of it....

    I think maybe the Japan jeans might have been a heavier denim but i couldnt tell (and cost about $150 more). They both looked the same and had the same tags on them. Besides the price the only difference seemed to be the guy telling me they didnt make anything under size 31. Which seems weird for Japan, and also seems weird because i got a pair from there three years ago that were size 30. Just want to know if theres anything special that makes the Japanese ones different

    I would start with telling them your regular size, they will advise you how they run.
    There is really no size charts for the RRL line of jeans.

    I've read that some RRL jeans are made in Japan.. on antique weaving machines.
    http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq...-kick-ass.html
    And some are made in the USA... the difference can be there.

    I don't deal with jeans because of the size differences..
    Good luck... hope you find a nice pair that you will keep forever.

    I've been a dedicated Levis STF LVC guy for over ten years but am thinking about trying RRL. So, should I buy them true to size or allow for shrinkage? I want a style that is dark, trim but not skinny and straight.

    What do you recommend?

    pocketsquareguy, i would recommend that you don't buy them without trying on all the cuts and all the washes you can find. i have seen many pairs and the sizing can definitely vary depending on wash, cut, and run, though two pairs in the same run are likely the same or almost the same in terms of measurements. if you're buying from someone on here or ebay, ask them if they own a pair themselves and if their pair fits true to size. and then compare to jeans that you own and fit that have similar rise. the rise is important, you can't just go by waist size. sounds like in terms of cut you would probably want slim straights or low straights in a rinse or dark wash. as a cautionary tale, in the old old days (2005?) the jeans were vanity sized so badly that one had to size down quite a bit, and other times had to size up quite a bit. check out this thread on sufu for the evidence: http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk...ad.php?t=14076
