^ btw, when it comes to chambray shirts, if you replace the typical buttons that come on those shirts with higher end mottled brown horn buttons, it turns them into something a lot nicer and more vintage looking...try it
Looks like Amazon is selling used copies of the Free & Easy 2007 issue dedicated to RRL that I posted about here http://www.styleforum.net/t/120192/the-official-rrl-thread/20955#post_7290440
they aren't cheap, but if you love RRL, you should probably grab one or share a copy with somebody else, because it's got pictures of the line back a decade and the issue is now out of print at the publisher
if you read Japanese, all the better given the copious...
as a PSA, there are a couple of these blue label RL corduroy vests on ebay at the moment in a very nice color of brown
given the sale price, it's a good 'project' vest to tinker with if you like improving on things
I got one in my size and I intend to take the back off and replace it with a darker brown linen with black thread in the weave, to make it more of a fall/winter toned vest
a seamstress can do this for not much money and it will look a lot nicer imho
this is the kind of vintage coat I wish RRL would do more of (in muted earth colors like this one). A vest in the same pattern would be great as well.
recent versions of Indian print coats are in very gaudy, flashy colors which aren't wearable in normal life, unlike this one
I would buy one of these all day if they offered it again (this is Blue Label RL but RRL details would make it even better, with a slimmer profile)
why would that be, you'll actualy be getting a better price if RRL sells their markdown stuff onlineunless insiders get paid off to alert the ebay sellers when they'll list them and the good stuff gets taken quickly as soon as it's listed
^ too costumey for me, but to each his own
are you sure that's not a Ltd Ed piece they made out of it?
they used those pockets on the women's Posadas jacket and they came out awesome on that one
here it is:
after weeks of going back and forth with RRL to honor several orders for this vest that they kept cancelling, I finally got my Posadas vest
much darker in color than their webstore picture (real color below), and the buffalo nickel buttons are also muted and tarnished and not shiny whatsoever, so it's perfect as it is.... and doesn't require further antiquing
I love it
