    Not sure how long iv had these Olive Clydes but I washed them for the 1st time after wearing them for maybe 30 to 50 times. Such a great fabric and still my favorite fitting pants let alone that they also are tops in my RRL collection. Last photo is for comparison. They are still really stiff and retained some of that wax coating although they don't have the sheen they came with

    Oh and the baggy ass the Clydes come with has tightened up quite a bit. That last unwashed photo shows what they were like prior to water

    For me i like the way it looks but I also only wear it like that with certain pants or looks. Musicians are typically who do it out of necessity to prevent scratching their guitars.

    First time poster here with a question. I am ordering my first pair of RRL Low Straight's on ebay within the next day or so. I have no RRL dealer near me so I can't make a trip to try them on for size. I normally wear a 33 Regular in all my other jeans. My thighs are a little larger than most at around 25.5" at the largest spot. Just wondering if this style of RRL jean will be too tight for my thigh region. I don't like my pants to fit super skinny. Thanks!

    The Low straights give me problems in my thighs but i am a true 36 waist with me needing at least a 26 in thigh. I can pull off the tagged 34's which by the way measure 36 at the start but if i want some room i go with the tagged 35 or 36. Most RRL bottoms are vanity sized so that means if u are a true 33 waist you should go with the 32 but they will fit as they should...slim. Hope that helps

    Thanks for the response! I have a bad feeling they are going to be a little snug for my liking. I have a good sized rear section too that doesn't help the situation. I have never worn a very slim fitting jean but I am trying to transition. I have worn the same looser fitting jeans from the Buckle for years, and I am starting to feel like my style is similar to AC Slater from Saved by the Bell. Time for a style change. Will reply back with the outcome!

    I just ordered two pair. One is a 33 Low Straight, and the other is a 33 Slim Boot. I hate not being able to try things on before a purchase. Both had decent return policies so figured what the heck. Here are the sellers.

    If you are worried about the low straight being too tight in the thighs then the slim boot cut will definitely be too tight. Out of all the different cuts of RRL jeans. I find slim boot to have the smallest thighs.

    I am tall and slender (6ft and ~170 lbs) and low-straights are my fit of choice. How does the low-straight compare to slim and slim bootcut in terms of fit and measurements? I never tried slim-fit jeans. I have my eye on the slim-fit New Mexico and slim bootcut repaired Santa Fe wash jeans. The later are on sale and pretty cool repaired denim and wash! I wear boots a lot in the fall and winter. The low-straight leg opening is about 16". That is a nice leg opening for shoes and boots; not too too big or too small of a leg opening in my opinion.

    I can help you a bit, I have several of all fits, I wear a 30x30 in all of them.

    Measurments:
    Low Straight
    waist - 33
    rise - 9.5
    thigh - 21 ish
    leg opening - 15

    Slim Fit
    waist - 33
    rise - 9
    thigh - 20 ish
    leg opening - 14

    Slim boot
    waist - 33
    rise - 8.5
    thigh - 18-19 ish
    leg opening - 15

    Low straight is the loosest through the whole fit, slim fit has more taper and smaller leg opening, and the slim boot (which is my favorite fit) is the slimest in the top block and basically has no taper.

    Thanks for sharing! I think the slim boot is right up my alley. I called the RRL store in East Hampton, NY and they have my size in the slim boot Santa Fe wash and on sale for less than the sale price online :)

    I am not digging the repairs and stains on the slim boot Sante Fe wash jeans, plus uncertain about the slim bootcut fit. Gonna stick with low-straights. Anyone have the low-straight One-Washed jeans? What is the weight of these jeans? Are they really stiff? How long will it take to start getting some nice fading, wiskering and honeycombing on these? Would I go with the same size as my low-straight Dark Wash jeans? Do they have the back pocket stitching? The pics on RL RRL's website are misleading. One pic has back pocket stitching and the other do not. Thanks!

    My OW lows straights had the pocket stitching but each pair is different. They will fade but not right before your eyes like some raws. As for sizing them, I went 34 but wish i would have went 36. They fit but were tighter than i wanted
