    God damn. I'm finally wearing my Orchard St bucklebacks after having them taken in, and after a about two hours of wear, they look and fit like they weren't taken in at all. Basically, I have a big ol' diaper butt. Maybe I have to use suspenders with these...

    Part of the problem is that I have to cinch my belt a fair amount due to the high waist and very straight cut.

    Saw this while waiting for my roommate to get his hair cut at Thorps here in Madison. A friend of theirs is a photographer and had some work up in the place....this one was titled "RRL Storefront NYC" I believe. I happened to be wearing my officer chinos at the time.

    It's the super heavy rigid selvage twill. I think I'll give them a very hot soak just to see what happens.

    FOR SALE: RRL Slim Fit Rigid Selvedge Jean - Size 33 x 34

    Condition: worn for about 8 months and in excellent condition. Bought from the RRL store in Bleecker in NYC. There are no cuts and tears whatsoever. These jeans have never been washed or soaked. In fact, I've completely kept them out of water by not wearing them in the rain or humidity. I am selling them because at the end of the day they are not the right cut for my body type. All my other RRLs are low straight and I have a couple straight legs. It pains me to part with them but the truth is I'm not going to wear them enough to justify keeping.

    Please PM with any offers. I prefer to sell these to someone directly on this forum versus listing them on ebay.

    These look like the overdyed "black on black" or "black on blue" wash; can't quite tell from the pics. In any case, they are awesome, and I believe not a "standard" wash carried in stores. The black on blue wash had people gushing in this thread; the black on black are not quite as awesome, but still pretty great. You should jump on these on ebay if you want them.

    I know Namor posted about this before but went into the SF Ralph Lauren store today. They had a lot of shirts on sale for $75 with an additional 25% off. That makes it about $56 a shirt. I woulda copped some but they don't fit my build.

    Did they have any jeans left on sale? I've been meaning to go in and will finally have a chance tomorrow.

    They had some blue jeans in straight leg for around $100. They had 1 pair of slim fits in grey in the back but it was size 34x32. The SAs are really helpful and will call other stores to help you track down a size you need. I had them do it for the slim fit greys for me.

    Are the raw slim fits any looser than the washed ones? Not sure what size to get for the grey slim fits. I have the clear blue wash slim bootcuts which were supposed to run true to size. Not sure if I should size down 1 for the slim fits or not.

    Wait, the RRL jeans are on sale at the regular Ralph Lauren stores? What are the discounts? Any styles excluded?
