So just a note as well.  Not sure what the validity is to this but my better half just got back from NYC and stopped by the West Broadway store.  She noticed they had some women's items and asked the SA about it, who claimed they had been slowly receiving inventory and were bringing back the women's line.     I hadn't heard anything like that so again not sure if it's true or if in reality it's just old inventory they are slowly trying to unload.
  Yeah my jacket (42R) isn't really 'boxy' per se, just a bit roomier in the arms and shoulders than the two RRL suits I own, which are admittedly extremely slim (size on the suits is 42L).  Unfortunately there is no way I can go down to a 40 and still have the waist area work (gotta hit the gym!).   Thanks for the tip, yea I figured it best to wear with shirts that I didn't mind any bleeding on.  Good to hear that after a few wears the bleeding reduces.  Where this piece...
  Good to hear on the herringbone sport coat.  I liked it a lot but saw the pictures vs. description and was wondering about the patches.  Also I can second the Unconstructed Sport Coat being a nice piece as I picked that up recently.  My only complaint about it is I found the fit (primarily the sleeves) to be slightly boxy compared to other RRL suiting I own which I find is very slim.  It works on the sport coat though because it just means there is a little more room for...
  Yeah I recall back in the day (at least 6 or 7 years ago) I'd occasionally see RRL stuff at the 'regular' non-PSR outlets and TJ Maxx/Marshalls.  Usually the outlets would have a rack or so of random Blue/Purple/RRL stuff marked down quite heavily, but I haven't seen that in a while.  I also recall finding a pair of straight leg denim at marshall's for like $40 a long while back, but nothing at all since then.  As you note with Marshall's and TJ Maxx it's all about the...
Pants on a bed.....   Rigid Officer Chino's purchased back from December 2013.  Initially I wore them about twice a week, now down to once a week, so I'd guesstimate this is approx 160 wears.  It's kinda grossing me out thinking about how these haven't ever been washed, I think they are about due.  Does RRL still sell these?   I see them up on some websites (unionmade etc) in odd sizes here and there, but nothing on the RL website.  Was unsure if they still make them in...
 I personally like the RRL suiting.  I'd own more of it if I were in a position to wear it more often, but my 'dress up' these day's mostly consists of business casual at best.  As noted by others I find it a good mix of old (wide lapels, intricate fabric) and new (nice 'Euro' cut/fit).  Whether or not it would be frumpy IMO would come down to how well it fits you.  If the cut is flattering then by all means you can easily pull it off.  But I can see how a poor fit...
  Did you get these in yet?  Curious to hear your opinion regarding fit/fabric.  I have a pair on their way as well but ordered my usual officer chino size.
Given that it's our hot summer season where I'm at, it will be a couple of months before I can start breaking out the warmer gear.  Which is a shame (1st world problems), since I've got some things I really want to put to use.  Below are some of my favorite recent pick-ups I'll be looking to break in come fall (RRL Brooks Wash Low Straights, PRL Indigo Cardi, Frye Artisanal Harness)   What is everyone else looking forward to being able to wear come fall/winter?  
  Yup, mine is the 'raw' version, I wasn't aware that there was another version, I'll have to keep an eye out for it.  I missed out on the matching denim duffle.  I was impressed with the emerson, also I recall the pricing being quite reasonable (considering RRL $495 tote) 
  Interesting.  I have the Emerson bag, which I picked up about a year and a half ago I think.  My version definitely has a striped wool 'blanket' pocket.
