    It's such a hit or miss with the colors when ordering some times

    Heading to NYC this coming weekend and am planning to stop by one of the RRL stores. Which venue do local folks prefer, the store in the Village or the one in Soho?

    Also, I would appreciate any suggestions for other "don't miss" stores. I'll be staying in Manhattan, near the Fulton Street subway station.

    Thanks!

    Broadway for its size and selection but Bleeker for its nice confined space that will allow you to see everything clearly. I almost always go to both but Broadway is my choice. Broadway also has a nice selection for woman so ikeep that in mind f your are going with a GF or wife. As for other stores the Bleeker st store has some good shopping and eats within walking distance.

    Others:

    - Blue & green in Soho
    - Self Edge on Orchard street . On the corner you will find the best brick oven pizza on the planet Goodfellas Pizza (my father created many of the pizzas on the menu I.e the Sallie pie)

    I will definitely add Blue & Green to itinerary. And I check out the pizza parlor as well.

    The advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

    Jeans help (possibly asking the impossible)...

    I've got a pair of brown slim bootcut japanese selvedge in a 36 and I really like the denim, they're the perfect fit in seat, thigh, leg. I even like the rise, but they're a bit big in the waist - okay with a belt, but pretty much 1.5" too wide. I'm looking for a washed/distressed blue pair with basically the same fit but a tighter waist. If I size down to a 34 I'm worried that what's a nice fit elsewhere will suddenly become overly slim (with US 12 feet - overly slim looks ridiculous) or I'll find waist sizing isn't consistently generous.

    Are different washes/finishes generally consistent in size? Is the American selvedge similarly sized to the Japanese?

    Any thoughts/advice?

    Thanks

    I really like the slim bootcut, but after trying just about every fit they've got, I finally dialed in my favorite as the low straights. I size down 2-3 sizes (I am a 33 to 34 so I buy low straights in a W31) and these are pretty perfect. The rise feels very similar to slim bootcut, and of course, since the legs are straight, I don't risk looking like I'm wearing my high school son's jeans.. I'd give the low straights a shot and I'd actually go ahead and size down to the 34 to start..

    Low straights are excellent. Every measurement is right on the money for me. They give you all the benefits of a nice fitting jean without looking skinny. They are also comfy to wear

    Surprised all you dudes tend to size down on RRL denim. I'm also a waist 33/34 but I almost always go for my regular size and RRL denim seems to fit just fine. On the other hand, I lift and incorporate heavy squats and lunges into my routine so that may have something to do with how they fit.

    Lowest I've gone is W32 on a pair of low slims in wheat, and that's doable but nut bustingly tight in the top block. I would have preferred 33s or 34s but found them stupid cheap at an outlet so I had to kop. They're starting to stretch a little, though.

    On the other hand, to compare the RL lines, with Black Label denim I find that 34 fits more like a 32 and I have to size up one. Black is generally cut way slimmer than RRL, however. Ranking the fit of the lines, I find Purple Label to be the most generous cut, PRL and RRL to be middle and Black Label the slimmest. I don't wear the specialty lines (Golf and RLX).

    Are we talking about downsizing based on RRL's vanity sized bottoms or are some actually taking it further by buying a tagged 32 (measured 34) with a (body) waist that measures 36?

    Thanks folks - I hadn't considered the Lows based on the fact I don't really like low rise jeans, but from measurements they look more like what many a manufacturer would term mid-rise. I'll keep an eye out for a cheap pair in a was I like. I' wish jeans were made to tagged size (or with raw expected shrinkage) - my Studio D'Artisan;s are about 3" under tagged size and the RRL seem a good 2+ " over tagged size...

    Haha, I have a true waist that is 33" to 34" and I downsize to W31

    I just love wearing RRL because it fits so well and looks so awesome...only problem is now that I have acquired a concealed carry here in NYC, RRL clothes sort of make it hard for me to do just that. fortunately, winter is here now so i wont have to worry about a sharp bulge for a few months.

    i left my oversized denim and sweatshirts back in the nineties...anybody here have that same issue and have addressed it?

    btw, i prefer not to hold anything with a barrel that is under 4" and i hate IWB holsters...so please don't suggest any of those two methods.

    The other 2 methods would be not wearing RRL or leaving the gun at home since you don't wanna go compact or use a IWB holster.

    I feel your pain....

    I'm digging the suspenders. Kind of hard to tell, but how are they attached to your jeans?

    On the upside, you look a little like Russell Crowe in the second pic, and your style is a thousand times more on point. Look for the positives. :)

    I hear you.. I went from 165 to 210 at my heaviest, before diet and exercise brought me back to 170 where I seem to have settled out. Many years of living in hotels and eating shit food were mainly to blame..

    There were a couple of threads about concealed carry with SW&D wardrobes a while back:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/298005/covert-fashion-aka-fashionable-concealed-carry-menswear/
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/265140/concealed-carry/

    I'm not a gun guy so I haven't read through them, but there might be some tips in there.
