Nope, everything you said is exactly how I feel and why I don't like 'em. Came here to double-check I wasn't alone.

Would you ever go back to APC's? I see em sometimes on Reddit and Heddels faded but I don't really think they compete with RRL's in my opinion. Could be wrong, I never wore a pair.
I have one pair of APCs I wear for work that I pair with a sport coat. They fit the bill when you need a conservative work look.

Otherwise give me paint-splattered, motor oil-sprayed, sandpapered-and-dremeled, ripped-and-patched, shredded and faded, or all the above.

I try to buy the right inseam or cuff them, there are guys doing chain stitching in NYC I just couldn't be bothered to travel to there...
Williamsburg Garment Co does a mail order service as well. I sent some jeans there in January to get hemmed, was quick and easy. I think it cost $40 something total, but I added $10 for the expedited service.

Yeah, it's easier for me in Seattle area to ship them to Williamsburg Garment than to physically go to Blue Owl x 2 to have it done locally. WG is $20 for chain stitch and $19.50 for shipping (includes return). But no additional shipping for multiple pairs.

You don’t get daylight during the week in NL?
I just checked mine outside. Pattern is more visible but still fairly subtle. I like it enough to keep it since it’s going to cost quite a bit to return.
I got to say it looks a lot better in lighting and the pattern is visible good enough to be noticable. Not as good in the pictures, but still good. I'm keeping it too.

FYI, can take advantage of this sale multiple times if you want by contacting different RL stores. I think I'm good on RRL for the foreseeable future. Lol

That's what I always think after spending. Then the new season (or a sale I can't refuse) comes around and FOMO kicks in. You'll be ordering more RRL in no time :p

I mostly stocked up on the core stuff, chinos, cargos, and a jacket or two. But yeah, any cool new pattern and I'm probably getting fomo LoL

But I try to only buy RRL on sale. Otherwise the prices are absurd to me.
