    All the details look okay. I've never seen a grey wash so light before though, almost looks white. and he says they're a straight fit when the only straight fits I've ever seen have had the pocket stitching on back. Those look more like slims, I'd ask a few questions.

    Yeah that’s the only thing off about them right ? The color is super light. I asked the seller for more pictures and to clarify the style is straight or slim. Anything else look off? :)

    I found a pair that is called sulfur wash. Does this add up to anything, or nah?

    I would definitely ask for some measurements—especially the waist. Sizing can be very inconsistent with RRL denim. The actual waist size of those jeans could be anywhere between 32.0 inches and 36.0 inches.

    But are there any other signs of authenticity or does it look fake?

    Pretty certain they're authentic. But if you'd like more confirmation, ask for pictures of the inner tags. That should give you the assurance you seek.

    So the Blue logo on the small pocket is the right color? I only see gold/yellow thread on the official website

    So what’s the verdict guys?

    When it comes to the slim-fit RRL jeans, you are not the father. But the jeans are authentic, so there's that.

    some good stuff restocked in the sale section if you're a XL or XXL, not sure if you'll be add to cart though considering the websites issues :slayer:

    Is there a way to tell what season a piece is from based on the tag? I picked up these slim narrows in 'charcoal wash':

    The slim narrow cut is a little snug in the calves, which in retrospect I probably should've seen coming based on the name.

    Received the Cowboy Jacket yesterday. There's little to add to Serad's excellent review, other than to say the jacket is more lightweight than expected. I love it. The "warm" shade of black is very appealing and I like the minimal contrast between the color of the denim and the leather accents. As far as my build concerned, it's a perfect Medium—slim without being tight.

    For those who are interested, here are the vital details:
    Size: Medium
    Chest: 22"
    Shoulders: 18"
    Sleeve: 34"
    Sleeve (shoulder seam to cuff): 25"
    Back Length: 24"

    Just for fun, l compared these measurements with what's posted online (at ralphlauren.co.uk—the jacket isn't up on the US site yet).
    • Size medium has a 16½" front body length, a 19" back body length, a 19¼" shoulder, a 45¾" chest, and a 34½" sleeve length. Sleeve length is taken from the center back of the neck.
    What a joke. Whoever's responsible for posting this information is just mailing it in. If you don't want to do your job, give it to someone who needs the work and is willing to put in the effort.

    BTW, this isn't an isolated glitch. RRL measurements are uniformly erroneous. Anyone who makes buying decisions based on published numbers is going to disappointed. I call that "customer disservice".
