The Official RRL Thread - Page 807
oh really... i stand corrected. When i bought mine a month ago I asked the store to order them in for me to try on... both were 9.23oz.
Has anyone seen both of these to compare?
Yup, I bought this http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13088135&cp=11588650.12138267&ab=viewall&view=all&parentPage=family
and it also says 10.5 oz
I bought these on the European site.
Both on the site and on the tag on the pants it says 11.5 oz. "Reproduction of 1940s British military officer model rendered in rigid 11.5 oz. left-hand selvedge twill developed exclusively for RRL."
But in the pocket stamp it says 9.23oz.
They clearly are the rigid twill ones. However, it seems they have an older version here in Europe.
I also have a pair from about 3 years ago which are marked 11oz.
To be honest, I didn't really notice that the 10.5oz ones I just got were different from the 9.23oz.
All I've done with the new ones is to try them on to make sure they fit the same, which they do.
They also fit the same as the old 11oz ones.
I kinda prefer the 9.23oz over the 11oz because it's not so stiff but it's a very slight preference.
You guys this is Amazing!
That is one beautiful jacket, Prajna. For a much cheaper alternative there is the Orvis munitions:
I like the RRL much better - the zip cuffs, padded shoulders, breast pockets, and hide.
If I wasn't so enamored right now with a Himel Brothers Heron '29 for a leather jacket I might remotely consider the RRL.
i know there aren't many ppl that wear XL here, but if any of you are interested in this vest at cost ($90), message me. i'm going to return it at woodbury if there are no takers. cmon guys, rl_store has it up for $300 haha.
Why don't you have that in an XS or S for $90!!!!
