    True! In fairness, it really only matters what you think it's worth, not how much money someone else is or isn't making. I just wanted to give an gumercindo an idea for negotiating/shopping around purposes. I think the oxbloods were really popular when they first came out, but the excitement has passed.

    Saw some neat gray RRL slim boot cuts on ebay. They are 33 long and I take 32. Thinking about having them hemmed but I am not sure. Anyone here hem their RRLs?

    Just realized that the oxbloods appear to only come in slim fit. son-of-a!

    Slim fits just do not fit on my body.

    if you really want them to work, size up 1 or 2 sizes and have the waist taken in. i did that with my pair and they fit perfectly, i.e. plenty of room in thighs

    I dunno. I tried on some black slim fits (for reference, I wear a 31x32 in low straights) - I tried 32 and 34 waists and nothing fit well. I'm even doubtful that taking in the waist would work. But, I will go into the store again and re-try the slim fits and see if it could work (at the right price, of course:)).

    How did your tailor take in the waist? Did they just add darts to the waistband or something different? Do they look OK after altering?

    i asked him to add 2 darts at the waistband. Actually, I brought in a pair of RRL workpants to show him what I wanted. came out great! $20 job

    Cool. That's what I need to do, too. slim fits are starting to really be too big at the waist. Should this something any tailor would know how to do?
