    most of the same stuff as when i was there on monday. i guess the tweed jackets were gone by now?
    i really hate going to that place. being surrounded by super ignorant shoppers shoving me out of the way kind of gets to me. i went a few weeks ago and some russian guy tried to take the pants i was currently paying for and buy them himself

    I didn't bother to read most of the arguments for or against goods made in China but I thought we established over and over again on this forum that the country of origin is not indicative of quality. Many times the quality of something made in China can beat the quality of the same good that is made in Italy. Made in Italy does not mean always mean a good was made in Italy (ex. A Gucci purse being made entirely in China then a Made in Italy tag being sewn on the purse in Italy or "Swiss" watch the is assembled in Switzerland with all Chinese parts). Once again with this thread there is a lack of knowledge as to what clothing quality really is. Is it the thread quality? Is it the durability of the denim? The thickness of the flannel in the flannel shirts? These marginal differences in quality that are apparent when supplier makes an agreement with Ralph Lauren to produce their clothing is almost invisible to the consumer. That is what I love about this forum- it exposes the quality stuff from overpriced crap.

    Unfortunately a couple RRL shirts I have owned have had buttons fall off which has never happened to any other shirt I have owned from less expensive brands. The 4 pairs of RRL jeans I have owned are all first rate though I must say.

    I think the great overlap of the different Ralph Lauren brands, especially with the new introduction of Denim and Supply, calls into question whether RRL is worth the extra money (at least it does in my mind as a consumer). Why would I pay $185 for a chambray shirt that is made in China by RRL when I could spend $69.50 for a Denim and Polo chambray, both Ralph Lauren when I can't see differences in quality?

    Quick, someone find me a pair of dark wash RRL jeans with an actual 31" waist and a thigh measurement that's more than 11"!

    You mean this one?
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/RRL-Ralph-L...A_MC_Pants&hash=item2c5e1b06ce#ht_4319wt_1185

    Looks like vanity size 2 as well, should just ask the guy, looks like he is at least quoting accurate measurement (though not sure if I would buy from him, I am guessing you can find better deal if you wait)

    No, these are not black on blue; BOB don't have a tuxedo stripe on the outseam.

    Tuxedo stripe? And it has the girly tag on it - if we still think that that tag means anything...

    In general, if you're concerned with thigh size, probably safe to go low straight or straight leg. Although these slim fits that NAMOR found seem to fit your measurements.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Can you confirm it's this...'mid-light' grey fade and not a more heavily faded black color though?

    Think they do phone orders without getting pissy?

    They're the grey ones you're looking for. Shipping should run $ 15.
