    Hi guys I have been looking to buy a pair of jeans from RRL for awhile now. I like the detail on the slim boot cuts but prefer a narrow hem. Are there any RRl jeans that have the stitch detail on the back pockets like the slim boot? If there is not then how wide is the flare on the boot cuts?. I prefer a slimmer looking Jean but have no idea what the measurements are on any of their jeans.

    RRLs slim boot cut fit is very subtle. I have a pair and the leg opening is only half an inch larger than the knee.

    Ok that's what I was hoping for. I don't like hems that are sloppy looking. The pics I have seen of the RRL slim boots looked to be a slight flare but I wasn't sure it would be different IRL. Would u mind posting a fit pic if u have any or get the chance. i would love to see the overall fits of them.

    Unless very much mistaken, the stitch detail on the back of the slim boots is the same as the low straights.

    U are correct but I tend to shy away from anything straight. I could have the wrong assumption of straight fitting jeans but I have always looked for slimmer fitting jeans by going with jeans labeled slim or skinny. Not talking Levi 510 skinny jeans but I do like slimmer fits. . I have toyed with a few cuts with different brands and I so far have figured out I like the skinny fit of the unbranded brand and the weird guy fit from N&F. I have this memory of a pair of sevens in a straight fit I owned many years ago and since then I stay away. Anyway I'm clueless about RRL fits but am attracted to their detailing.

    The slim straights are a better fitting jean than the slim boot in my opinion. If you're into slimmer fits, you should probably go with the slim fit. I think some slim fits have the stitching on the back pockets too (although don't quote me on that).

    Low straights are not that far off from slim straights. I have both, not a huge difference. Low straits have the back pocket stitching, give them a try.

    Based on everything you said, go with slim fits.

    Each of the fits has its own unique back pocket stitching; the exception to that is on some of the indigo washes, the slim fits have the same back pocket stitching as the slim boots cuts (both those fits are actually the same above the knee).

    Thanks for all ur feedback. Im gonna go with the low straight to start. I'm also really digging those cords in the sale section available in black only. Wish I would have grabbed that khaki color when it was around. I can go on for days with what I like and don't get me started on the new indigo henleys

    I am getting my first pair of RRL jeans. I like them to sit at my waist so I am thinking the straight leg in dark wash.

    I wear 34x30 pants. Officer Field Chinos I wear 33x30.

    I have never had selvedge denim should I size down in the waist and size up to 32 length? Is it fine to get 30 length?

    How's the quality and fit of the Brunel? TTS?

    What sort of leather treatments would be recommended for snow?
