Speaking of raw, these ones (low straights) are close to 10 years old now. Fades have really come along pretty well.

Just picked up this limited edition olive selvedge. Is it normal for the cinch belt hardware to show up with rust? What's a good suspender to go with it as I think it's odd to use a regular belt with the cinch. Thanks.

I just received my pair.

I originally ordered a size 32 via ralphlauren.com, but that was too tight. This time, I ordered a size 34 (only size left) and just tried them on. Size 34 is a bit large, but I can make it work with my shirt tucked. I hope it will shrink a bit after one wash.

Few questions:

The website I ordered this from (Cultizm) uses this fit description:

"Loose fit - Straight leg - Mid rise"

Loose fit is partially true, but it feels more like a regular-slim fit around the thighs. Straight leg is probably correct, although it's a bit wider than other RRL straight legs that I own. Mid rise I don't agree with. This feels like a high rise. What do you think?

Not sure yet if I'll wear these with suspenders (don't have any yet, anyway).

The paper tag on the back pocket in the pic says "Straight Leg".
Also doesn't it list the fit on the inside pocket?

So often what the fit is supposed to be versus what it actually is varies and is more a general guideline. You basically just get what you get.

Seems like this pair being a bit large might work for these though. Get some suspenders and cinch up that buckle.

I am looking for a new backpack / weekendbag and consider getting one from RRL.

Will use for gym, running errands, city trips, etc. so it's important they can take a beating and withstand rain. Also important that they are practical; need to comfortably fit laptop, pair of shoes, clothes.

Would appreciate your thoughts & opinions on RRL bags.
