Ha, I know the feeling, I also have a few RRL sweatshirts and they seem to be inconsistent, I either love or hate them. The red hoodie is firmly in the “love” category though— it’s super soft and fits great, the hood itself is very robust and is perfectly snug without being too constricting. FWIW I’ve had the best luck sizing up on RRL sweatshirts.

Curious what you don't like about them. I mean yeah they're pretty expensive for a sweatshirt and the 2 pockets vs one kangaroo pocket thing kind of bugs me but they're what I expected.

fabric is as thin as cardboard, no weight to it. for 260 a pop it should at least feel as substantial as a reverse weave imho

i have a wallace and barnes indigo dyed sweatshirt built like a tank and was 1/4 the price

question for the experts here. how do you all launder your cotton shawl cardis? i had dry cleaned them in the past but i feel like they’ve gotten a bit droopy just from the weight of the fabric and layering/general wear. also one tag says dry clean and others say gentle cycle and dry flat. would a low temp dryer be out of the question? i usually air dry all my rrl stuff to prevent shrinkage.

I guess these are fake? Or have RRL ever used paper patches instead or leather in the back waist?

for nonselvedge, zip-fly denim rrl uses paper patches. these are all imported. sometimes with american denim but made in mexico. i own several pairs in the slim narrow fit and am quite happy with them. the pair you posted seem to fall in line with their other nonselvedge offerings

I have never tried slim narrow, they're quite slim right, like waist 30 would be 6.5in leg opening?

slim narrow is the slimmest fit, I believe top block is equal to the slim fit but the taper from the knee down is more aggressive. I wear 30 as well can take measurement if you like. Should also have some fit pics wearing them.

i think they have a slightly higher rise than slim fits but with a stronger taper from the knee down. i wear a 36 and i think the leg is about 7.5". low straight and slim fits are good for boots and i find slim narrows to work well with sneakers.
sorry for the double post above.

I'm true waist 30, take low straight in 28 and 30 in slim because even if I could get slim to fit in 28 it's ball busting tight everywhere...

if you have leg opening for slim narrow it would be great if you can post that, though from the sound of it I doubt I would want slim narrow (too slim for me)

I hand wash or gentle cycle with woolite. Even the ones that say dry clean. Then air dry them flat using a sweater rack.

I would do gentle cycle with cold water and no detergent (or Woolite or the Laundress sweater soap). I've done this. I'd recommend putting inside a Dryel bag or other sweater washer bag for the wash cycle. Then air dry just laying flat on a towel. If that doesn't tighten them up a bit, wash again dry on low also inside the Dryel bag.
