    Cool. Was a little worried about sounding pedantic, but thought I'd mention it just in case you didn't realize. I rarely see official question/answer sections on listings these days; I just do this all the time.

    Having said that, after emailing, did the seller tell you they refuse to answer questions or did they just not respond?


    oh if you hit the ask seller question and it brings you to that screen with the preanswered questions and then you hit the click continue at the bottom to ask the seller a different/unanswered question, it states, "We're sorry we couldn't find an answer for you. Unfortunately, this seller is not able to respond to your question. We suggest reviewing the item again to see if your answer is in the seller's listing."

    so i guesst eh seller is blocking all incoming questions/messages but i dont know how you do that since ive sold on ebay before. kind of weird

    Hrm, mine is relatively form fitting, at least compared to my other shirts. I mean it's not tight, there's room for movement in the torso and sleeves and from the side view the bottom flares out a bit. At 31" it covers the top 2/3 of my back pockets and about 4/5 of the fly. How does yours fit?

    A little different: front covers 2/3 of the fly and 1/2 of the back pockets. Maybe we just have different ideas on what is too long. I could stand it being shorter, like it the way it is, but definitely wouldn't want it any longer.

    But I've never seen any pics of RRL pairs that really aged well. Am I just looking in the wrong place?

    Did you catch the pic of member soonami's straight legs? I keep repeating them for two reasons: first, they look amazing, and, second, I have a pair of straights myself and they will never fade (so I'm amazed he got them that way) - I've never had a jean this stubborn. Granted they are relaxed, but all my raw jeans are relaxed and they fade. So my RRL sraights are my perma-deep blue jeans (which is nice in its own right).

    let me spoil the surprise: double-r-"ell" ove-r-ells carpenter jeans.

    At first I thought you were talking about these:

    Which I've seen listed as carpenter pants, although they aren't but they are not 8oz and have the suspender buttons.

    I love these jeans - the measurements, the exposed rivets, and the look and weight of the denim (15.5oz), but I can't get used to suspender buttons and bucklebacks.








    For those of you who have done phone orders from RRL stores in the same state as the store, how much is shipping or do they offer free shipping in the US?

    It's flat $15 regardless if you are in same state, unless you can convince the SA to waive the shipping fee for you.

    no they're actual carpenter pants - pockets, hammer loop, and reinforced knee.

    What about the sleeves, do they fit slim or are they sort of relaxed? I roll mine up because they're a little big.

    Shopping for RRL on ebay is really great. I find the most rewarding aspect of RRL on ebay to be that lone seller listing many, many shirts at exorbitant, near original retail prices. It's great because you can see his shop-tanned torso (top three buttons undone obvs) and goateed chin in EVERY SINGLE AUCTION in the exact same pose.

    That guy rules. I wanna do shots with him and Dave Navarro at Planet Hollywood over a ripping guitar solo. Shit, Ralph Lauren should hire him as "the face" of RRL.


    That dude's Italian cousin must work for threedifferent.com. I was wondering what that ebay guy reminded me of.

    Tried searching through this thread, and the one answer I found was "not much" to a related question. But I think the poster was talking about waist shrink.

    Will the RRL's in lightly distressed low straight shrink at all in the inseam?

    ^^ Lame! They're just an inch too long and I want to move the knee fades up.

    Thanks for the responses guys.

    @ RKD, I'm fairly certain those are female jeans. I was looking at them for a long time before I bought another pair on SW&D. The rise and opening were different from the similarly listed men's jeans in that cut. So I passed. But, if you've got skinny legs, they might work.

    I think I tried emailing her and she just ignored it.

    Not relaxed. Keeping them unrolled is perfectly fine. Actually, I have the oppositte problem: even though I prefer rolling up the sleeves on all my button-up shirts, I sometimes prefer keeping the denim shirts unrolled because they feel bulkier when rolled from the thickness of the denim.

    At some point in the future when I get my hands on a decent camera maybe I can post pics of me wearing it, along with pics of all my RRL aquisitions over the years for the thread.





    This is interesting, never seen it before (sorry, big pics):
