RRL new Hong Kong store
The Yelp reviews for Al's are a bit of a running joke for those of us locally who know *how* to use him. Like any tailor, some have skills in one area and might not be so good in others. I use him for workwear, jackets, vests, and accessories. If you are detailed oriented with him and can provide pictures of what you want, he will bend over backwards to get it right and his prices for bespoke are very, very reasonable, esp if you provide the fabric.re: Levi's LVC and boots...
RRL_Clothing, you don't need to "find another brand" you only need to find a tailor who understands vintage, then the world opens up to any possibility do you really like the 1995 vintage RRL western items? Too bad, they won't make them again, but my guy can copy them as long as I can find the fabrics and do the distressing myself (he does metal distressing and leather distressing, though very well) you can have just about any previous item you want.... re-made whenever...
^ it has nothing to do with Al's.... it's the bespoke process applied to Streetwear & Denim what in God's name do you think the design department at RRL does all day???? if you've been buying RRL for years at some point your taste evolves and they run out of iterations for the same themes, so an intelligent person supplements what you get from them that's the point

Wearing in the pieces you already have is a better strategy because they all look better worn-in anyway.Of the rest, 25% is very, very...
^LA Guy, have you ever tried to contact RRL for an interview?
for those of you who want close-up pictures of RRL pieces, there are several Japanese retailers that post their own pictures taken from several angles so you can see the details front and back nice to see the Limited Edition stuff, too worth bookmarking: http://www.rad-nyc.com/ http://www.rhythm-fuk.com/shopping/rrl.html http://foober.ocnk.net/index.php/product-list/5?page=5
you are like a drug addict who resells drugs to other druggies to afford his habit then criticizes the other druggies for buying from himmake sure to go hit the RL outlets this weekend to resell on eBay, because that's what everybody who can 'afford' RRL does I'm sure, right? RIGHT???
I can't afford RRL? LOL!I won't even dignify that with an answerthe reason I bought the W&C shirt was because RRL hasn't offered anything in that color, in that weight for the past 10 yrsit's unique, it works with all my other RRL stuff just like Mister Freedom items I own do or Freewheelers or Risging Sun or the stuff I have Al's Attire make for meDUH!!!!!imagine, W&B sourced a better and different fabric than RRL! IMAGINE!!!?? OMG! my brain explodedQUESTION: who would...
