Anyone have an idea how much the unwashed limited-edition khaki chinos will shrink with a cold wash/hang dry? Particularly concerned about length, I've got maybe 0.5-1" to lose before they're too short.

no experience with this particular one, but I have never had more than 1" shrinkage...

I thought they phase out slim bootcut a long time ago?
I believe they did. Mine are at least 7 years old, and I rarely see them in store or on the web; that's why this limited edition caught my eye. Besides the low straight, they are my favorite RRL fit..

Bought this thinking it's a nice SW print to wear out or under a western shirt. So, I try it on and it's kind of a loose cut but the pattern seems - off. I put a shirt over it and then being a bit warm I take the shirt off and see it in the mirror and say to my wife and daughter, "This looks girly." And they agree. So, I gave it my daughter. Maybe she'll make masks out of it.

Received the serape stripe t-shirt but it was super thin and kind of short so I returned it.
Went online and was dithering over this henley but between checking inventory and then deciding to buy it my size went OOS.

I think this shirt would look “off” if button up’d to the top / paired with an uninspired look at my barely broken in Viberg boots and raw denim vibe. However, paired with a brand like 18 East it would look pretty good.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
