During the last Polo sale in Dec. 2008 I corresponded with a store about purchasing a solid navy RLPL suit at the 30% off (sale price). I could not add on any additional discounts. As the retail was > $4000 the sale price would have been around $3000, so ultimately I didn't buy.
1925-1938 for the clothing, furniture, art, and lifestyle (among the wealthy). 2009 for the dental care and puncture resistant auto tires.
I have a 100% cashmere RLPL suit that I've owned about 3 years. The cashmere is relatively heavy, and has a certain "fluffiness" I've found in other RLPL cashmere goods. I wear it once every 2-3 weeks from mid-fall through early spring. So far (knock on wood) no appreciable wear or problems with the coat or the pants. The pants do "bag" fairly quickly and need a press more often than my other suits.
I propose a ban on the word "shirting(s)", unless it is spoken by someone wearing a monocle.
I have no problem with the size of the houndstooth--I have a suit with a houndstooth pattern almost exactly the same size and its great as a "casual" suit. What won't work well is the color scheme...three colors instead of two. My suit is just dark grey and medium gray.
I have seen this label before and owned a suit with I recall it was the precursor to RLPL--so it is an old suit, but also higher quality than Blue Label.

I guess I wasn't in there there target market - and their marketing strategy worked - I didn't renew. Agree entirely, and I also failed...
