    Yeah, my older rinsed pair is smaller in the waist yet roomier in the thigh compared to my newer pre-washed low straights even though they're tagged the same size. The new ones are too loose in the waist, but fine with a belt. Just afraid they'll stretch out even more in which case they'd be falling off.

    I've had that same experience across different fits, especially the straight leg. I've never had jeans altered in the waist, though I've been tempted to do it with a pair that I mistakenly sized up and is now too big. I've talked to the guys at denim doctors in LA about the process. basically what they do is detach the waistband completely, cut it right behind the center belt loop, and also take in the seat so it's all proportional. The only thing to be concerned about is that you don't take in so much that the back pockets get too close together.

    curious if anyone else has done this...

    I'm going to ask my tailor about this. I guess if the new seam is hidden behind the belt loop it wouldn't be noticeable at all, though it might be a weak spot.

    Not really I'm working on a pair of low straights... I'm usually a 33 so I sized to a 32 and they fit perfect.... But I soaked them the day I bought them.

    Have you washed or soaked them at all yet?

    So if I wear a 29-30 waist in Rugby/PRL, what size in RRL should I be buying?

    They look good. Any measurements? TTS or did you size down?

    I don't believe they are currently doing them, hopefully they will again later. The last 2 orders I did in July, after completing the survey it only gave me a chance to win a daily $25 gift certificate....no code.

    Anybody here ever had a cowichan sweater? I just got a pretty good deal on last seasons RRL war eagle vest off Ebay and wondered what other owners thought.

    I tried it on before.. Didn't like it. The cowichans always look better online because of their thickness. When you are close up, it doesn't look as nice. In my opinion.

    I really liked last year's cowichan featuring a bucking bronc on the back. This year's indigo aran cardigan is beautiful, but when I went to check it out at the Melrose shop I was shocked to learn it wasn't wool but cotton (or maybe a cotton-linen blend, can't recall). It lacks the taut springiness of a thick wool sweater. Instead it has that unpleasant flaccid weight that I associate with cotton sweaters. The deep indigo color really is something else though, and it's probably a better pick for SoCal weather.

    This is the one I bought. I thought $189 for something handmade and NWT was a good deal!

    I really like that vest, what are you pairing it with?

    Btw almost everything is hand made, you'd be surprise how little is machine made.
    What country was it made in?

    Not sure how much interest there is for high end watches on here, but I thought I would throw it out there

    We were lucky enough to receive the watch found in the link below. GQs watch pick.

    http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-g...eek-ralph-lauren-safari-rl67-chronograph.html

    I believe, the movement is Jaeger Lecoultre. I believe, less than 50 were made. All but 6 are left. The others were presold. It's a very cool watch in person.

    Let me know if you are interested or have anyone you might know that is a watch person.


    Thanks,

    Robert
