Purple Label, Black Label, Polo suits, sportcoats and trou, plus wool Incotex - Page 2

What's the difference between Portuguese and Romanian made Incotex? Is one better than the other?

The chief concern, at least on SF, is that there are usually differences in the fullness of the cut, though even this can vary from season to season and line to line. I haven't heard of one being substantially better than the other, though I don't doubt someone will come along to tell me I'm wrong.

Not sayin' you're wrong, just emphasizing that cut varies within country of origin substantially, so buy based on measurements.

And free bump for a cranky, but otherwise excellent, seller.

Thanks, Kaxixi. You da man. Maybe now I'll be less cranky.

There's a photo illustration showing the difference floating around here somewhere. A search would turn it up.

There's no difference in quality.

As far as I can tell, the Romanian factory produces more of the casual trousers, while the Portugese factory produces more of the dress trousers. But this is not an absolute rule.

By how much could the Purple Label sportcoat's sleeves be lengthened? Do you think that there would be a line where they were originally folded over (as can happen with cotton)? M

I will have to check for you on the extra material, but I know there's some to let. Regarding the potential for a mark, I'd say the cloth behaves more like a heavier linen than cotton.

Would you happen to have any Ralph Lauren Black Label suit in 38R or 38S?

Not in that tagged size, but the BL sportcoat may fit a 38.

Also, the hemp sportcoat appears to have 1.5 inches of cloth folded in the sleeve, as measured from the very end.

Hey Doc,

I'm typically a 44R. For instance, in Italian PRL suits, a 44r fits me fine, but my shoulders still poke out a little. In other words, if there were such a thing, I would probably be a 45R in the aforementioned suit. How this is of any concern to you is that with respect to the RLBL suit you have offered, do they historically run smaller that the Italian PRL? Would a 46R in RLBL be the way to go for me? If yes, I'd still harbor some concern for other fit elements such as the waist of pants, midsection of the jacket, etc. I guess I could (and do with the suits that I currently own -- I'm around a 33 waist) make substantial alterations to the jacket and waist. Well, sorry for the relative incoherency of the preceding, but your input would be appreciated in making a decision on your suit (if it's still available!). Thanks,

Tony

Thanks for the pics, doc. Let me know if you capitulate completely on price on the PL coat.

Updated the thread. The PL hemp sportcoat and BL suit are both sold. The Incotex, however, are back on the market. There was a lot of interest in those earlier, but so far no one has sent me the money.
