    How long is your break in? I've never had a pair of RRL size up 2 after breaking them in.

    Up 2 from tag size which +1 from as bought….break in typically 3-6 months until first "wash" - after initial soak depending on denim and use

    In my experience, RRL are vanity sized +1 to begin with - pretty much all of em from Denim to Chinos to the Wools - and its not uncommon to get up to an extra inch, regardless of brand. Chinos stretching the least, then denim, then wools (bought two pair at 31, now both measure ~33.5).

    Sizing down a half size is your best bet IMO.

    While we're on the subject of leather, my RRL Chesterfield bag had its maiden voyage this past weekend. It easily holds a folded over garment bag plus 3-5 days worth of clothing and fits nicely in the overhead compartment. The leather is very soft and smells great.

    I was looking for a new pair of grey jeans and grabbed these rigids from feebay. They resemble the special edition pair I've seen around recently, but have a black RRL patch and no fancy detailing or tags. The denim is rough and slubby outside and soft on the inside. Anyone know what season they're from?

    They run big, not sure if this is normal for rigids. These in a 32 are the same (if not a tiny bit bigger) as my one wash in 33. Do you guys hot soak your rigids? They are pretty stiff and I wouldn't want to blow out the crotch or anything. I might be able to shrink them a tiny bit if the water was hot enough.

    Yes. I saw it at the Chicago store a season or two ago and remember how great it looked. The post-Christmas prices were right, I was in the market for a bag, so I jumped. The zipper is a vintage Talon--thought that was a cool detail.


    Yes, they are. Japanese denim, all that.

    Hey guys! Im really interested in picking up the M39 Varsity with the lightning bolt patch on it. I was wondering if theres any chance that there will be a sale in the near future that will include it? Im new to RRL as a brand. Thank you!

    NOT a fan of these at all. going to try and exchange for the straight rigid (keeping the LS rigid but sizing down).

    Hope no one gets offended that I'm putting these here. Thought people might want to see a quick pic of some beat in RRLs. These are about three years old. Two washes in the tub. Pics are before the third wash which I did last night. Then it's to the tailor for some patching on the blown out crotch. RRL low straight 34x34. Also, they're extra dirty from a full day of yard work yesterday.

    Nice dark indigo. One of the better pieces they offered this year. Weight is good enough for spring and early fall.
