    Dropped my Orchard St bucklebacks off at the tailors today. It's a new shop run by a young woman who "prides herself on altering garments so they don't look like they've been altered", and she has great reviews on Google. She's taking them in in the seat and waist, recreating the split waistband, moving the belt loops, and moving the cinch back to just below the belt line- all for $38! Let's hope it works out, because I've been searching for a decent tailor forever. She had a bunch of wedding dresses on the alterations rack, so I am willing to bet she knows what she's doing...

    I'll post photos when I get them in a week or so...

    Sounds very extensive, really hope things go well for you. Isn't the waistband one continuous strip? Does the tailor remove the entire thing, cut it down the required amount and reattach?

    The waist band isn't actually split- it's continuous, but there is a notch above the waistband. She's going to do her best to recreate it, but I'll be ok with it if she can't do much. I'll just be happy to have them fit.

    Received the wallet. Absolutely love the way it looks. Was nervous it would look "70s show ish" or bulky but fortunately it just looks like a really great quality, slim wallet. Thanks grundletaint [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Other than the Las Vegas Outlet, are there any others that have a large selection of belts? I am looking for a canvas on blue ribbon/leather type belt. For W32, if anybody has seen any or could proxy me some please let me know. Something like these

    i had a RRL ballstic nylon surcingle type (similar to the ones you posted but it was plain red). they knot very large, so keep that in mind.

    also, just fyi they size those particular belts like 's' 'm' 'l' etc. not by numbers.

    I don't have those but I have other slim boot cuts. If you plan to wear often, I'd size down. The waist is a little big. The thighs however.. tight.
    It's love/hate with that cut. I don't get why they made the top block so much looser than the rest of the body. And they're tight enough around the thighs that it doesn't really work if you sag them.

    I've never been able to figure out RRL sizing. I've got three or four belts that are all just a touch too big when each time I thought I was getting the right size. I'll still take "sorta wearable" over "yeah, no way."

    I don't think RRL has even been able to figure out RRL's sizing.


    On that note, a local shop got slim bootcut raws in and I'm gonna try them on for the hell of it and see how they fit since I've only worn washed versions.

    I think I'm like 5 months in on these jeans and I'm FINALLY starting to get some fadez.

    These jeans are indestructible, though, so it's understandable.

    Thanks for the measurements whodini.

    PSA to people in San Francisco. The Barneys there has a big sale. I saw 4 different RRL shirts there for 69 and the grayish speckled shawl collar cardigan for 97. They still had a decent amount of smalls in stock and a few mediums.

    Yeah, if I wear size size 32 jeans, I am guessing an M would be the best size? How have you sized on these? So, anybody seen these or similar styles that might want to proxy.

    For those in London, Liberty and Bond St. both have RRL on sale. Price is not bad by UK standard, but retarded by US standard. For example they had non-selvedge red officer chino reduced to 115 GBP...

    Not for that price, plus they wouldn't have something that old. Barney's is at 60% off now, so that means the retail would be around $245. The only cardi's that run that cheap are cotton sweat ones with terry loop inner. 100% sure he saw this one which is a seasonal icon piece.
