Has anyone picked up the Naval Wool Shawl Overshirt? Any comments on the fit?
I agree, the sweatpants are great. Although in this instance, sizing down is probably a good idea.
I missed out on the pants from the Spring collection. Bummed about that. Did you size down in those as well?
Just received this felted print sweater
Great RRL piece. I highly recommend it.
would def get steamfitter when on sale ... looks great
Medium straight is a new fit which has the rise of straight leg with same overall fit as the Low Straight. Good for those who wear shirts tucked in. Also they are switching to Cone denim
How do the Buckle-Backs compare to the regular Straight Leg fit jeans? Size up, down, the same?
Everything about this jean looks to me like a Low Straight that has been mislabeled. The pocket stiching, the lack of back pocket rivets (that did exist on the Low Straights a few years ago), the double reinforced stiching on the fly attachment.
I am surprised though that they are using a lighter weight denim (12.5 oz) and switching another (non-Japanese) supplier. And by surprised I might somewhat disappointed...
Lower weight denim is only due to the fact these are for SS13. Not too thrilled about the switch to Cone either but they are supposed to be custom fabrics and not the same used by every other brand using Cone
They going to be using Cone for all denim?!
sucks. goodbye rrl. another line of shitting soft formless repro denim.
Can someone explain what is so bad about Cone?
I have a pair of Rugby Cone denim, made in USA - North Carolina, I believe. They seem to be great, about a year of normal use and they seem to be great to me still. They are still Rigid, keeping a good shape, and some nice pine cones (which I enjoy) around the knees.
The pair of jeans in question: http://www.selectism.com/2010/08/20/rugby-slim-denim-with-necktie/
I did but I generally size down with all sweatpants and pajama bottoms.
There's nothing bad about Cone's denim, it's just that almost every "Americana" brand to pop up in the last 4 years is sourcing denim from them, mostly from their normal stock and not custom made fabrics despite what the descriptions may have you believe.
Nothing against Cone specifically either. But what I think makes RRL special is the combo of Japanese denim at the same level as the big boys plus classic American styling and manufacturing (in LA). I'm not hating on the Cone. Yet.
Anybody getting this dandy?
