    Great feedback. Thanks!

    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

    someone should grab these ... BNWT Selvedge Officer Chinos in 34 no affiliation ... these are the ones from last season. they are amazing and i had a pair in 28 but were still too big so sold on here. the new season's officer chinos seem to run a bit slimmer and are def softer though

    went to polo mansion yesterday and they sent ALL of their sales to Soho store. cabbed to soho store and they had a bunch of sale stuff in every size. it was pretty sweet. grabbed a few RRL flannels for 75ish and finally pulled the trigger on the RRL Oxblood Raw Selvedge jeans for 105! they will prolly wont get worn that much but spring season is coming and they are light weight and at that price i can wear once in a blue moon and not cry about it.

    Those chino's are cut extremely full...too full for my tastes. While nicely constructed, the fit is extremely unflattering on bigger dudes... I could take them to a tailor, but honestly, I really don't think I'll get them to fit the way I want them to. But that's just me.

    Can anyone confirm/deny the RRL oxfords, not the selvedge, are capable of shrinking? The L is just a bit snug at the chest, and of course the XL is a tad too loose.

    yeah this is why i sold mine. i didnt have time to try the new season's officer chinos but they probably fit similar and not the way i want, even if it is slightly "better" this new time around

    hmmm ... there were a TON of cords and almost EG/WWM styled field pants in every size def in 34. in terms of denim, most were various washes and treatments on them but there were at least 1-2.

    i didnt see many raws or single washed raws ... there were a few black denim and 1 last oxblood red in 36. but they had stuff in the back that wasnt on the floor and you just had to ask an SA. one of the dudes Rickie, was really great and called other stores to find me my size 28 in oxblood. best to swing by and try if your local

    All RL/RRL stores do phone orders. Shipping is a flat $15 via FedEx, you get charged sales tax based on your shipping address.

    got a couple pairs of slim boot that im considering throwing up on the bay/b&s; copped on ebay about a year and a half ago

    its weird though, the buttons dont seem that sturdy - like they kind of rattle if the crotch is undone
    (i bought/returned a pair from the michigan ave rl in like 07 but cant remember if they were like this too)

    is this normal? i am certain they are legit, but is there any chance theyre b stock or something?

    its been a few days ... you should just call. if you get a good SA and they arent busy, they should be able to check other RRL stores and locate what your looking for [​IMG]

    if not ask for one of their email addresses and you will call back later. its worked for me before. cheers!

    There is something infuriating about the eBay RRL seller with the goatee. He makes everything look terrible.

    I don't know what it is about him but he just makes me not want to buy what ever he's selling.[​IMG]

    Question from an RRL noob: I've got my eye on a pair of the slim boot corduroy jeans. Are these true to size or do they run a little long?

    Thanks for any help!
