Anyone have pictures of these black chinos?
Yes...below is what they look like after they have been washed and dried a few times...and un-ironed/pressed. When you first get them, they are pretty sleek looking and can probably be used as a dress/business slack if you get them professionally laundered instead of washing and drying like I did...in which case they start to fade and look like regular rrl chinos...pretty lightweight, more so than standard officers...
BTW...the above picture is deceptive as it is a slimmer officer chino and is slightly tapered...
Anyone has this jacket? Can I use the sizing info from Mr P for the lighter wash version since the RL site sizing info is completely off? They look identical to me except the wash.
@Cooly Thanks for the pictures, man! Always so hard to tell when looking on the website.
@styleforumfan I'll measure my medium when I get home tonight.
I've tried to buy both jackets (in MD)... i.e., purchased and then returned... b/c I liked the washes. The wash of the Trucker (lighter) on the Mr. Porter site I didn't dig in person... btw, I've seen 3 different examples of the same jacket. The darker (current) Trucker hung in my closet w/ tags attached for 3 weeks before I decided to return. It was a nice wash but IMO the aesthetic wasn't as appealing as the Indigo denim over shirt (current season, selling fast!). I'm resigned to accept that I'm not a Trucker jacket guy... too short for my personal preference and I wasn't a fan of the lower set pockets. I'm 5'10 155lbs for whatever it's worth.
Desert patrol items are not featured in the Fall '17 lookbook.
Fit photos of the knit jacket if anyone is interested (did not pick it up):
Also, really liked the corduroy blazer (will probably end up getting eventually):
Picked up the linen shirt and some chinos. Chino shorts were overly baggy in my opinion. My store did not have the black chinos but will probably end up ordering them based on the photos above.
Interesting, I think I got something very similar from few seasons back and it's actually a slim fit (looks almost identical)
Which indigo demin over shirt are you referring to?
About Desert Patrol, did you try your regular size? It seems a bit large and boxy, correct? Is the fabric thick and soft as it looks in the pic or is it light weight? What it means is not featured in the Fall '17 lookbook? Is still a summer collection? I'm thinking to buy it online, can you add some more details? Thanks a lot.
Desert Patrol is the second Fall drop, it just does not have a lookbook of its own, nor is it featured in the first Fall 17 Big Sur lookbook.
