    Some quick pics of the Orchard St. buckleback rigids while on my lunch break at a nearby park (yes I know they need hemming and there's still creases from shipping). Already cold, windy and cloudy here in Chicago so sorry for how dark it looks. I love these though and look forward to getting them into the regular rotation. A steal for $150.

    I'll try and post some Holiday Lodge herringbone tweed trouser pics tomorrow.

    Was at the RRL Melrose store last night, such a great store. Crazy how many people they have working there. Picked up a Henley (love the fit) and Western Twill heritage shirt in black, wanted to channel my inner Johnny Cash.

    "RRL Clothing" you are one of the worst posters in this thread. it's so annoying reading you whine about vintage RRL - how the fuck is a brand that started in what, 1993, vintage?

    Thanks SM.

    They're cotton but yeah they are rigid, almost canvas-like. The only downside I've noticed with these is the button-fly. Due to the stiffness of the fabric and the fact that there is stitching separating each button hole, these are incredibly difficult to button up (especially if you've got big hands and fingers). The buttons, while antiqued metal, are small, thin and poorly sewn on (I can feel them loosening already). I may have to have a tailor sew them back on with a heavier gauged thread and see if they can remove the stitching that separates each button hole.

    Other than that, they're great, especially the quality of the fabric. If I had to guess, I'd say the fabric is probably the same used in the officer selvedge chino.

    Can anyone advises on the fitting of RRL denim jacket? I'm looking to grab one from the official online web & exchange is not an option for me. So, I have to be spot on.
    I'm typically a size S person eg. Gitman as reference. It would be nice to hear from anyone who owns one before or try out one recently. Cheers.
