 I've got a pair, and no, I didn't notice any sulfur smell when they arrived. I've washed them once on a dark colours cycle and there's no smell at all now. Should they have one?
 Depending on which eyelets and speed hooks you like, it sounds like you were lucky to get the one with the smooth leather sole. Like yourself, I do prefer the whole sole to be Dainite, however as I mentioned, it would be much more of a pain and expense to replace. Of course, if you're spending that amount of money on the boots, that may not be a problem ... A Topy is pretty much what you found on Google, and the word is often used (from what I've seen here anyway) as a...
 I've got both versions, and apart from preferring the design of the one with the full Dainite sole because of its brass eyelets and speed hooks as opposed to the black ones, I'd have to recommend the one with the full leather sole for practicality reasons. I was actually going to post a question on here related to this, so hopefully this post both answers your question and asks mine. With the full Dainite sole, the Dainite sole is stitched (Goodyear welted?) to the boot...
 I have the Chambray shirts in blue and white, and to be honest, I mainly wear the blue one. If I do wear the white one, it's normally under a jacket, almost never by itself. It's probably just me, but white shirts on their own seem a bit like I'd be the guy wearing it on the beach singing the chorus break on a hip hop track. The RRL White Chambray is great quality though, and I'd wear one casually before the white shirts I have from Purple or Black Label, if that means...
  Does anyone have one of these Striped Cotton Jersey Henleys, that can attest to the texture of the fabric? I've noticed in the past that the RRL images are amongst the worst of the Ralph Lauren stock images for not updating sample images with the actual produced item, which can mean that it's difficult to judge how it would be once it arrives. Is this a soft fabric, or is it more cardboard like, like some of the other workshirts they've done?    I also find the...
The Norfolk Sneakers not only are smaller than other brands, but they're smaller within the brand as well.   I know the Bowery Boots are technically Cheaney, but I would have thought there would be at least some parity.   To put the sizing into perspective, I'm a 9 in the Bowery, and it feels as close to a Bespoke fit as I can get, but the 9 of the Norfolk Sneaker is too tight to walk around ... so another vote for them being smaller than usual ...
Yeah I could give it a try, if there aren't any left at any of the RRL stores. Of course, I could just realise that even if they're striped, nine contrast club collared shirts is enough ...
Thanks for the suggestions. I have ordered a white club collared shirt from Proper Cloth and found it to be a bit underwhelming when it came to the fabric. It was much cheaper than the RRL price of course.    I was basically trying to find out if anyone knew when this shirt was actually from.   I'm from neither the US nor the UK, but have the option of using a freight forwarder from either country. Maybe I could call some of the US stores to find out if they have any...
It seems that no matter how obsessively I watch the various Ralph Lauren Sites from various countries, I always miss out on my grails.   Does anyone from the US know if this ever made it to stores:   http://www.ralphlauren.co.uk/product/index.jsp?productId=60663401   It's the first time a shirt like this has shown up on the RRL range and they're all sold out overnight, it seems. There's no telling even which season it's from. It's definitely not on any Site from any...
 We forget that for a lot of people that aren't into this, the Men's RRL is also quite "Costumey". I've read articles (possibly written by BB types) on various mainstream sites about how guys wearing this kind of vintage workwear all look like they're extras from a Depression Era period film.
