You, of all people, are not a rookie!Rookie question so I'm ready for any heat I get...so majority of my RRL pants are slim fit. Well now that I have massive thighs, should I just suck it up and go up a waist and stick with slim fit? Or how does low straight, straight, vintage compare to slim fit. Recent data preferred but I'm all ears
Would agree about "aging out" of slim and skinny fit. I'm waaay past 35. Even when young, though, was not fond of low-rise. Generally speaking I think fashion if uncomfortable to wear is rather worthless.You, of all people, are not a rookie!
For reference I am 5'10" 155lbs and like you, my closet is littered with RRL. Shirts, shorts, trunks, bags, blankets, jeans, pants, and too many jackets. I have several different cuts of denim but prefer the low straight. I take them directly to my tailor who makes the adjustments I require and they are always a perfect, custom fit. I think slim and 'skinny' fit should not be worn on men past age 35 but that's just my biased opinion
While these aren't RRL, if you're looking for more jeans with this kind of fit-I have a pair of TWC relaxed fit denim that really is more of a straight taper with a higher rise.
That grizzly is badass
I bought a pair of these today from the London Newburgh Street Store. These in real life are totally different from the photos, and much better. The wash / worn look is barely visible really, there are no buttons the waist for braces, and the profile on the back is straight ( no v shape in the centre ). Still has the buckle back and tool pocket. Fits slimmer than I expected and certainly worth checking out as a highlight trouser of the season. Will upload pictures to show ( and yes I did double check to see if it was the same item - it is - but a huge difference from the product shots) other highlights are the striped fleece, which is stunning and the Indigo wool shawl cardigan.I stopped in one of the RRL stores yesterday and here are a few take aways to take note;
- The Fall 2021 catalog is now available in stores
- The Fall 1 sale isn’t likely to happen till around Thanksgiving
- I was told that there hasn’t been any decision yet about the spend over $1,000 and get $500 off sale
- A lot of the Fall/Winter items on the website are not physically in the stores yet (however not everything is on the floor so it’s also kind of hard to tell)
- These 3 pieces might be somewhat under appreciated based solely on just the website photos but are extremely nice and should not be overlooked IMHO;
Thanks for this. Just make sure to compare prices to RRL website. I noticed they raised the price from 249.00 to 299.00 on the brown wash slim fit jeans. Sneaky!PSA. Stag Provisions has a denim sale with 20% off through Sunday that includes RRL
