    I'm curious, does the RRL sub-brand carry tall sizes like the normal Polo brand does?

    If you're asking for the sake of hemming, its a different story. Consider (you don't have to do this, other denimheads here may disagree, this is simply regurgitated advice) a hot soak before hem.

    sales associate told me it doesn't, though she may be wrong.

    I've been following this thread sporadically, so I'm sorry if this has been covered, but are there any cargoes available right now? Not looking for the officer chino (I think), but I've seen examples of RRL cargoes floating around that looked good.

    I am looking for a pair of RRL duck canvased slim fit pants that came out a few seasons ago. If anyone knows where I can find a pair or is willing to sell, please let me know, thanks.

    i bought two selvage oxfords this weekend, i'm just wondering whats the difference between the selvage and non-selvage? i feel like its more of a gimmick than anything else.

    Besides the selvedge, the cut is slimmer fit vs. the boxy fit for the regular oxfords.

    Really? Have you had experience with both? Or can someone who has confirm? I've only tried on the selvedge.
