Pelican, your post has been released now.
Thanks a lot for a great review/comparison. Very detailed and interesting. It confirms the impression I got from the pics.

I've got the brown RRLs and am very happy with them. But indeed the leather is very very stiff making the taking on and off especially in the beginning very cumbersome.

no problem. I'm just hoping the new style will fade over time like the julians will.

Sizing on the new ones doesnt seem to be too consistant either. I have two pairs of the brown ones in size 8 right now, one fits TTS like a glove and the other fits like its an 8.5

That said, it you like it I'd grab it when it goes on sale. It is still pretty nice by normal standards. But... If the blue cable knit is anything like the Lighthouse hooded sweater from a few seasons back, it's much nicer.

Thanks, I'll wait to see the sale price if it comes to that. I

Nice stuff on this website:

[=http://www.fransboonestore.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=337_347_405][/]

In particular, the "Shawl Collar Cardigan Aran Hand Knitted in Black Indigo" looks sweet, as does the "Shawl Collar Cardigan, Cable Racking Dunkineely".

Based in Holland so shipping will be $. Really just good for useful (nicely taken) photos.

Thanks Hoit for the link as the pictures are nice for perspective...they even made that jersey vest look less Marlboro manny. Maybe RRL themselves should adopt this idea . That cable dunkinely is very nice!

 

Website not allowed to sell RRL online so a long distance call to Holland involved as well.

Coolio.

Out of interest dude, how did the jacket (in picture 10) fit and any idea on where it was made? Also, what the hell is that in picture 11... looks kinda kinda strange?!
post #11144 of 21395

Ha...the guy in the pic is not me. He does not look like a large IMO.  

 

As I have posted i do not live near an RRL store. These pics were sent to me by a very considerate and hard working associate trying to garner my business. I simply posted for the thread what I was sent. 

 

As for pic #11...it looks like a euro style moto jacket to me. I have little kids now so I unfortunately I no longer ride an iron horse...since we moved to the country we now ride four legged ones.

Update:

We just received a ton of vintage stuff for RRL. If any of you have a high interest in any piece, I can take detailed photos of the particular item and take measurements. Please note, vintage items are non-refundable.


-The sunglasses range from 195-495. Some come with vintage case, others do not. Range from glasses from the the 30s-50s.

-The vintage scarves are very cool. Some of them are patchwork. 3 red and around 6 blue. Range from 195-225.

-Can't really see, but we have 6 vintage collar pins. 65.

-2 zippo lighters. One is from WWII, iirc. The other is from the Korean war (very detailed, has map of Korea, with the 38th parallel.) Around 300.





-Belts range from around 32-36". Around 195.
