Ah, yes, conch. He's currently the source of one of the most absurd listings I've ever seen on ebay. Here's a 38 RRL belt:http://www.ebay.com/itm/RRL-Ralph-Lauren-Brown-Tooled-Leather-P-Wing-Brass-Buckle-Polo-Belt-38-/111125379195?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Belts&hash=item19df96b87b$600 for this belt.Nevermind that there's currently the same belt in same condition in same size for $179, like ten of the exact same belt in the same size as NWT have been sold in the last 3 months all for...
Yeah, RRL is tooled leather belt heaven.Don't know why rl_store is selling that belt without mentioning that it has "union of craft" tooled across the back, big and bold. Seems like a potential return just waiting to happen.You can get some tooled leather belts off etsy for sure.ACE leather belts can be had from the new affiliate Thurston brothers. I think they are pretty pricey though.LVC makes them, so too does Lee and Wrangler blue bell once in a while.Terry Dear does...
Ha! Yeah right. If I was I'd keep half the stuff he has. There's a good number of items I want off him. But unlike the rucksack they are not as close to retail.Mind you, he does have 22 watchers on that bag so it can work both ways in his mind: with so many watchers, one has to pull the trigger sooner or later, or, with so many watchers and no buyers he must know that he has to lower the price sooner or later. Maybe he's waiting for the bag to be no longer available from...
The rucksack is, what, a 1000 bucks on the site.There's one on ebay for just shy of 1000 bucks, which amazes me since he offers no incentive to buy it. Why buy from him for nearly 1000 when I can buy from them for $995 and get the added benefit of being on future online exclusive invites?But if this reseller happened to buy that bag for relatively quite cheap, say $200, giving him an obscenely low-ball offer (relative to his asking price) is not too bad at all relative to...
In my experience, I wear an XL in most RRL shirts, and PRL custom fit in XL fits me best.
As previously stated, and unless they've changed sizing, the 501 is significantly smaller than a RRL straight in the same size, in a 36 at least. The 501 has a lower rise, more taper and less thigh room. I need to get a 34 RRL straight, and I'm pretty certain they'll fit no problem. A 34 501, OTOH, would barely get over my ass. I would say that for a RRL straight in the same fit, buy one size down from your 501 size. That should be close enough. Obviously, I can't...
You already asked this question 10 pages back, it was answered, and you even answered it yourself. I'm pretty sure you asked even before that. You spend money there, online or in a store, and they consider you valued enough to get a code, or however it has changed as mentioned by Dastig.Asking the question over and over isn't going to generate a different method.
Another ebay seller who I think is also a BM stockist is browniebits. I believe it's the same as Philipbrowne Menswear, who, by the way, has some good deals on ebay.I just assumed that both they and Malford were maybe discontinuing their RRL presence, getting rid of remaining stock, and therefore no longer cared about following RRL's stipulations. It's not like Malford is being very inconspicuous about it.
Yeah, having recently tried on a pair of 501s and owning the RRL raw straight in the same size, I really don't equate the two. The RRL is noticeably roomier everywhere. Maybe if you sized down one - a 34 straight might be eqivalent to a 36 501. On the other hand, having recently tried on two Edwin Nashvilles (34 and 36), I can say that the Nashville (36) is practically identical to the RRL straight (36) that I have in just about every aspect of sizing. I'm on the hunt for...
To echo a sentiment expressed earlier, I'm wary of ebay seller annayounglady's rrl. Here's a denim shirt: Forget that it's a particularly ugly shirt, there's a few problems with it: 1. RRL is pretty fond of using, and mentioning that they use, high rim japanese pearl snaps. These aren't them. 2. I've never seen it before. Unless vintage (which this is not as indicated by the tags) it's rare to see only one seller selling a style of shirt 3. coming from someone who has...
