    Hey - turns out my 32 slim fits are actually tagged 33s, and are not vanity sized at all. They measure exactly 33 and 11.5 thigh. My new slim fit buckle backs are tagged 31 and actually measure 34, but the thighs are also 11.5. The legs seem almost identical to my sized 33 old ones. The buckle backs of course haven't been washed and my old slim fits are probably 6 years old, have been washed maybe 6 times or so, and dripped dry. My actual waist is 34 at my hips where I wear my jeans. I wear a 30 in low straights but had to go up a size on these to 31 because the thigh was too tight on the 30s. The buckle backs are US made, yup. Highly recommended. Their sizing is so screwy, but hope this helps.

    Last day of the Pink Pony sale.

    I finally decided on a couple of purchases, despite my overall lack of enthusiasm.

    Brown striped work chino

    Faded indigo workshirt

    I was told there would be no RRL private sale this year, so the next markdown won't be until the end of season price drops and at that point the things you want in the sizes you need may not be around.

    Ah. Nice, it seems like I should buy a 32 then if a 31 measures out to a 34. Damn! I'll wait for a 32 x 32....and another sale. :embar:

    Went to the Melrose store today. If anyone in the LA area is curious they have tons of officer chinos in all sizes. This is actually the first time I've been there and actually seen them when they've been in stock. They also said that the denim version was very popular and they were all sold out, and couldnt find any in my size at the other stores?

    Ended up walking out empty-handed, not sure if I'll regret missing missing out on the officer chinos... but I did walk down the street to a consignment store and managed to score a brand new pair of Quoddy Grizzly boot for dirt cheap. I guess the day wasn't all bad...

    I got my chinos today. I have a pair of cords in this cut from a few season ago that I love; somehow they feel slimmer in the chino. I'll probably have to return them.

    But the packaging was odd. They came all wadded up and wrinkled, and the pant legs were rolled/scrunched up to look like a pair of shorts. I'm not sure what was going on, except maybe they came off a mannequin in a store?

    I'm curious to hear how folks like the cords.

    Interesting. We have conflicting reports. Mine was from an SA, but I know that you are generally similarly informed. I wonder if it is a situation where RRL isn't included in the private sale?

    Thankfully we are members of a forum where we can share well-intentioned half-truths and misinformation in advance of any actual sale, and only enjoy ourselves all the more as a result ;)

    Yeah my info came from at SA at the RL store in downtown SF. I phoned in an order for the rigid denim Buffalo shirt right before the sale ended and got told pre-sale is in three weeks.

    Hey guys.

    Presale for the Private Sale starts on April 27. The sale goes public on May 5th I believe. No word yet of the percentages or which groups are included.

    The Give in Style event was a great opportunity to get core items that won't be included in Private Sale. ie Core Washes of Jeans, Core colors in officer chinos, henleys, etc. Core items are the pieces we carry year round.

    On another note, we were told Give in Style event will be extended to today. No word if it is online, but it might be just extended for in store only.

    We also received this brand new rigid denim jacket. The jacket has a neat inverted pleat on the front on the both sides of the front placket.

    Let me know if you guys need anything last minute. (please send me an email. I can not respond to private messages at work)

    Thanks,

    Robert

    That's actually how they ship their chinos from the warehouse.

    I got my cords yesterday. Won't be able to try them on till Monday though as I'm working like a dog all weekend - I do hope they aren't ridiculously tight in the thigh?!

    They came neatly packaged with no wrinkles...

    My chinos are tight in the thighs. My cords are not, but from earlier season.

    Got my cords today. They fit nicely. I think they are sized exactly the same as recent runs of slim fit raw and one wash denim. As such, I could have gone with 30 waist (if they had it in stock) and they would have looked good, but they look fine in 31 as well and will be a bit more comfortable in warm weather- I'll just need a belt to keep them from riding lower than I'd like once they stretch.

    I really don't see what's "seafoam" about the color, looking at them in person. They're a light tan or olive that's pretty normal for cords.

    Great pants anyway!
