    If you're getting saggy diaper butt you probably need to size down.

    I picked them up in Feb. - they briefly had them on sale on Melrose, came out to $113. Then the company apparently decided to make them an ICON.

    They're great, not as "slim fit" in my opinion as the standard slim fits. I'm a 30 in the low straights and took a 31 in these while I wear 32 in slim fit.

    These were pretty tight in the thighs and waist when I first bought them. Now there's plenty of room in the thighs and the waist is pretty much spot-on. The only thing wrong is the lower back with the excess fabric. I don't think I will be able to size down another -- it was close to intolerable early on. This cut may just not work for my big bottom. Any other advice or diaper butt experiences?

    Sounds like you could go a size down. What happened so far is that the waist stretched a bit so the denim now sits a little lower on you and thus causing the diaper ass

    A couple of questions on these, I'm sure they've been asked but I couldn't see anything in the last few pages and the search is awkward at best here. I also may be blind but I couldn't figure what sizes the fit guide on their website was based around for the thigh/rise/opening measurements.

    What is the thigh size in the one wash slim fits for any of a 32/33/34 waist?

    and

    Do I need to size down in these because of vanity sizing?

    Ideally I'd need a 12 inch thigh on a 33/34 waist if they aren't vanity sized.

    thanks man. Alden Cigar Indy from Leffot. I went tts and narrowed down the width. Gives the boot a sleeker (sexier? :smarmy:) appearance

    With this RL Give promotion is it good in the RRL stores as well? If it is are there any items it cant be used on, i.e. boots, leather goods, etc? I've got a busy week so I think a Friday afternoon RRL reward may be in order...

    Quote: Those are fantastic however I was referring to the short wing boots. My apologies, I should have been more clear.

    Man, those are nice. I was looking for something like that too: buckle back, no pocket design.
    Are your 32's vanity sized? Could you give me a waist measurement on the 31's you have? Do you know what your true waist size is? How do they weigh? Are they still made in the US? I'm really considering them! haha.

    I figure this place might occasionally have some decent RRL items:

    Etsy

    Most items seem to be vintage but in pretty good condition.

    ^Remember this sale includes core items which don't normally go on sale at those private sale times, so I would suggest picking up any basics like chambray, oxfords and rigid denim. Unless I am wrong e-tailers never have them on sale either. Also, rare to see them in S or M sizes on ebay.

    Btw, anybody know who makes this limited edition Browery boot for RRL?
