• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

haven’t bought RRL in a long time, how is the current slim fit? I have low straight in waist 28 (true 30), I had slim in 28 in the past, kind too tight, what’s the general consensus, take 29 or 30?

Just got an update. 1 order shipped, 1 order cancelled and 1 item still pending. I find this comical.

Is there a happy medium between low straight and slim?
Slim fit is an awesome cut. Slim narrow I don't have any experience with. Slim won't be hugging any nuts though. Unless...

Is this slim or slim narrow, tag says slim but leg opening seems tighter than usual?

^^^ look to be slim fit since that's what the inside pocket graphic says.........however, these seem off to me. Not saying they are counterfeit but the size tag does not look right to me. I own 2 pairs of Slim Narrow and they have more of a tapered/carrot shape to them with a slightly higher rise compared to Slim fit.

Hope this helps!

Good Morning, Im hoping someone might be able to shed some light on these. I purchased them off ebay from berasheat-barah(username) they are supposed to be the ridgway wash. I looked at these in store a couple months ago and last week a purchased a pair from RRL online store. But I got a size 30 and sent them back cause they were to small. I saw these for sale on e-bay in my size(31x30) and for $200 so i pulled the trigger. A few things have me a little concerned. the first is how distressed/coming apart the inside of ever belt loop looks. The pair I ordered from online was 100% not like that. Second, the stitching is hardly attached on the hem in that one section. Third, which may be normal cause my other RRL jeans which came from the store even differ some but not like this, the brown stitching on the RRL Brown Tag on the belt loop area goes pretty far beyond the actual tag. My other pairs do a little too but this seems excessive. I attached photos. Any help would be great. on top of this there is like a pull in the denim on the back of one of the legs that wasnt noted and all the inner tags are cut out/missing.

Well, I hope the seller is legit - I just bought a pr of jeans from them. They offer returns for any reason, so send them back if your'e not happy, I guess.

A little help from some of the advanced bros here, please. Just bought this denim rigid rinse jacket from a guy on ebay who seems kosher. This is the first I've seen RRL metal buttons or snaps not have an RRL designation. Does anyone know if earlier models had regular RL buttons?
He's not an RRL specialist, so it's possible something slipped by him. Thank you!

yeah good luck with yours. His feedback is okay so I diddnt think twice about purchasing. Which is pretty shitty if these are fake.

I have the same jacket and I've seen a few of the Rakuten resellers carry it as well. As far as I know, this version of the 1967 type 3 denim jacket repro did not have the usual RRL riveted buttons and the buttons you've got are the ones I have and the ones I've seen on Rakuten. The later versions that don't use cone denim came with the usual RRL buttons. I'd say if the other details are all correct, you're safe.
