No clue who made them. But my guess is they're not C&J. I could be wrong though.
They seem well made but the leather isn't as supple as other C&Js.
The toe area is very generous. I sized down 1/2 size (11->10.5) and they fit. Length is just long enough.
Interesting that according to the box they're 10.5US/9.5UK. Usually the C&J Ralph shoes would show 10.5US/10UK.

Information inside them is printed rather than handwritten as on all my other C&J except for a pair I got from Barney's recently.
Printing is different from those though.

Definitely not on the 325 last. Those other boots are a recent purchase from Barney's.
Keswicks on the 325.

They're Cheaney.

Edit: Just to clarify, it's not my listing.

I dont think thats the right box for those boots?

is it as nice as it looks?

I did, should have it tomorrow. I originally saw it on Blackbird's blog about the summer collection but assumed it had sold out.

Funny it doesn't show up on the site anymore, at least not for me, but if you click the link it shows a M and L in stock. Strange.

Need a couple opinions here.

Should I keep this or return (fits well):





Anyone know how these polos fit? Is the consensus that you need to size up? How slim are the?

1: If you like it, it fits and you'll actually wear it keep it?
2: I have 3 of them. In my opinion they run tts to ever-so-slightly-large. They are so ridiculously comfortable. Wearing a navy one today actually.

^ I was checking out Denim & Supply at the department store and noticed they have the exact same polo shirts as the RRL ones for cheaper.
post #11047 of 22031
I bought that workshirt last month. It fit great and I loved the details and design. However, I returned it because it was just a bit too distressed for me. I wanted to avoid any potential "who are you kidding" jeers from my wife and kid. Otherwise its a great shirt. If you can live with the fading, keep it. It's really a unique RRL piece.

SRG, I guess that's what I'm thinking - it might be a little overboard; and I could do without the collar tab. On the other hand, it does look great. And thanks for polo fit advice. But Froosh - Denim & Supply shirts are that similar? I will have to check out my local Macy's!

It seems they are actually that similar. The D&S all seem to have additional logos and things but otherwise pretty damn similar.

Very similar. Same wrinkly placket, 4 buttons, same pocket etc.

D&S green polo which looks like the above one: http://www.thebay.com/eng/mens-Short_Sleeved_Cotton_Polo_Shirt-thebay/254889
Another: http://www.thebay.com/eng/mens-Short_Sleeved_Slub_Piqu__Polo-thebay/249216

EDIT: beat me to it

I have it as well, and I love the shirt because it fits so well. Ultimately it comes down to if you like the distressing (I do). It's an incredibly detailed shirt (such as selvage accents inside the chest pockets) which sealed the deal for me.

I have some ebay bucks about to expire, and i have some Macy's credit. Maybe I'll try both and compare.

If you like your polos to fit like a tee (I do) then TTS...if you want to fit like a golf shirt I would size up.

The fabric on the RRL polos is also pretty stretchy and thin, so they do loosen up a bit throughout the day. I find they fit about like RL's custom fit polos, maybe a tiny bit tighter.
