In need of some rrl jeans lingo-interpretation here. I got these on consignment at TRR, and love the patina. Unfortunately, they came washed and a bit shrunk 👹 that said, they are a tad tight on my calves. Will this subside? Also, isn’t “slim bootcut” an oxymoron of sorts? Thank you.

Hard to tell from photos, but it looks like they may have been tapered and hemmed. That may explain the tightness around the calves. If that's the case, then regular wear will not remedy the tightness. I've had a few situations where TRR failed to disclose that an item was altered, which royally messes up how things fit.

yea I have seen some slim boot on eBay that was altered, I always ask for leg opening just in case. Slim boot got to have been gone by now for quite a while though?

Hi everyone,

I am new to RRL. Are those camo cargo pants from this season? I am wondering what the fit is like. Given the side tabs, I am inclined to size up to a waist measurement of 33 inches and then cinch down or wear it looser, depending on my preference.

My question is for this season's camo cargo pants. Is the waist measurement true to size? E.g., a tagged 33 waist is actually 33 inches. And how is the overall fit? On the RL website, it indicates it is a "Classic fit with a slightly tapered leg".

Thank you.
Typically RRL fits larger than tagged, 1-2 inches.

These ebay resellers buying up this discounted stuff and turning around and asking for 15%-25% above full retail can fuck right off.
Exactly! The capitalists will argue it’s the invisible hand of a competitive market, but to me, these sloths are preventing aficionados from enjoying the sale.

Imagine how much these douches would mark up a bottle of water on a hot summer day?

There’s gotta be a better way to make a living.

i get you. but you have to respect the "risks" they take buying the items and flipping them. if nobody buys their "overpriced" items then their practice will cease to exist. i saw a hoodie i bought on sale for about $100 a few years ago selling on ebay for $250. if nobody buys it, he/she will have to eat the cost.

this is not a bottle of water on a hot summer day - water would be somewhat essential. not having your RRL on sale is a first world problem.

i do agree that there is gotta be a better way to make a living. this has to be their side gig.

congratulations - you’re selling it for more than the original list price!!

reward > risk lol

Side-note, the back graphic is the buzz-kill.
