Well this looks like a bargain with bids starting at $1000. It's not RRL of course but it's close, and at least the seller is getting into the whole 100 X RRP thing that seems to happen on eBay. Special.

Update from my managers.

The RRL give in style will only be available in stores. I've been grunting down items for people and having everything ready to go for Thursday. Please let me know if you need anything so I can pull it for you.

Things are starting to go quickly.

Thanks for the reply. Do I need to factor in stretching too? Say, if there's an inch of stretch after breaking them in, should I go with the 32?

As much as I want it, I desperately need a down jacket, or a snorkel parka - something to get through a MN winter. Michigan can be bad, everyone here is telling me MN is worse.

The one Snorkel at RRL is okay, but does not look like it will keep me warm - although those RLX ones seem like they would. Any suggestions? I usually parade winter in a duffle, leather jacket, or tweed trench coat.

i have the RRL peacoat which is plenty warm for me

havent handled any of the other RRL winter wear yet

Down if its going to be dry. Synthetic (Primaloft) if it is going to be wet. Mammut, Patagonia are my tops.

Yeah that is all fine and dandy in DC. Last time I was there in winter, a heavy blazer or tweed trench was more than enough for me - although I layered with sweaters

I'll check these out, although Mammut's site was kinda odd - I'm not rescuing people from an Avalanche, just trying to get to the office in one piece...

Penfield seems to have some nice stuff as well. Biggest factor is wind chill apparently, so I'm guessing down is the way to go

Understood that you're not going on expedition. Here is my philosophy on gear: get it from the specialists. Mammut ger will last the way shell cordovan will. I can't comment on the durability of RLX gear but am supremely confident that it is not nearly as robust as gear from someone who specializes in making that piece. Having fondled RLX out wear, I can say the construction on Mammut gear is better. Now, your decision will come down to what look you want. If you want a puffy from RLX, go straight for Mut or Patty.

Just received mine last week. Ordered both a L and XL to try on, kept the XL. I wear a 42L suit jacket.

I agree with this, but if he is only going to be going to the office in this thing I think RRL should be fine. I think a Woolrich snorkel or a Moncler one might be a good compromise, the former will probably be cheaper than the RRL also.

If he wants something more technical I also like Patagonia, but think that Mountain Hardwear, Outdoor Research, and Arc'Teryx make good stuff.

Really? I wear a 44 and I was debating between a L and a M. Can you post fit pics of the XL? How tall are you?

stevent, did you get those as rigid or one rinse?

saturdays, check out Canada Goose. not a RRL aesthetic, but they are very warm.

Yeah, I think I like Canada Goose, lots of friends recommended, I'll have to think about what my choice of action will be.. a lot of winter items have yet to come out, at least I know for a fact that Rugby will. Not too sure on RRL - but I think right now I'm digging the Snorkel jacket from RRL, just not sold on it yet. Otherwise next option is one the the above suggestions
