    Have you seen them in person? Just wondering if this fall's officer chinos are the same as the SS10 with single flap pocket w/ small white label vs the previous seasons with dual back flap pockets.

    I picked up the sky blue and nantucket reds from SS10 and I prefer the construction/fit to the older officer chinos. If the lighter green pair in that pic are chinos and not cords, then I'll prob pick those up.

    What didn't you like about the fit?

    The ghurka pair I purchased last fall fit slightly roomier in the thigh and lower leg. But I just picked up the officer chinos in black cord and it has the same slimmer cut of the SS10 officer chinos, so it appears they've tweaked the cut.

    No real standout pieces for me from what my RL store had from Alaska and Outlaw. Did pick up one Alaska flannel in red, but nothing else. Seems Orchard St collection is only going to be in select stores as the only other collections they would be getting for FW was Lighthouse and Holiday something (slopes maybe?). Will have to check that out when I visit NYC later this month.

    RRL at the mansion is sweet.

    Picked up a pair of the officer chinos in navy cords. Once I get paid this week I am buying them in the khaki cords.

    Only other real standout piece I saw was the officer chinos in a selvedge denim. Very cool but wasn't feeling the $340 price tag esp. since I already own way too much denim.

    Not sure if mentioned lately, but the RL store in Georgetown has a small section of the store dedicated to RRL. I don't recall seeing this before - new?

    Thanks, Lynx. Honestly, haven't been to that one and I never noticed any RRL. Oh well.

    There's a new-with-tags pair of RRL chinos, presumably from the early 90s, for sale on eBay right now, with an MSRP of $68. Interesting to see how far up the value chain Ralph has moved the brand since those days. Even factoring inflation, RRL trousers far exceed that price range today.

    Just not a fan of the shade of greyish green fabric, looked even worse in person imo. And about only the Hampton location having it in stock, I find that odd seeing as there was a full size run with it at 50% + 25% off a few weeks back at my local RL store.

    Doesn't matter what I think anyways as long as you like it.


    I picked up that shirt yesterday at Field House (full price). The green is pretty saturated, I wouldn't say it's grayish at all. I thought it was unusual, and love it. Here's a photo:

    J.Crew ripped it off per usual, there's does look less saturated:
