Perhaps by workwear standards, yes, it is standard fare (RRL is workwear/heritage/vintage inspired I suppose). I personally prefer much more refined fabrics than repros but that's personal.

I'm in Braintree...what Marshall's are you referring to?  Was there anything in size 33-34 waist?  Shirts?

A heads up for anyone that may have purchased the Powell chukkas or the Washington boots. Since they look like they are similar construction and use the same manufacturer. Today I received the RRL Powell chukkas. Nice looking shoes, kind of unique, great leather. They fit well and I really like them. I would probably keep them except I noticed one of them makes a clicking noise as I walk. Turns out that when I flex the sole in a twisting motion that causes the noise. I believe they have a steel shank and it is loose. Hopefully no one else has this issue.

The RRL officers is definitely not worth the $1200 (i don't think i would buy any peacoat for that price), but it is a nice coat and on sale is a great piece, with a great fit and a much more refined fabric than the repros. I've tried on the RRL peacoat ($690) and also buzz ricksons at $1000+ but these are just too thick and rough which while i understand are supposed to be true to heritage but too much for me and probably the average person.

Hasn't arrived yet, should be great from what I've heard though. Only thing I don't like about it is that it's un-lined....

 

I'm a fan of the old and new. As much as I like the modern style billy reid I like the old repro' buzz rickson/toys mccoy and the old rrl's. They both have their place

Heads-up, even though it may be to late since the A2 is sold out...but this thing does run small. I have a L in every other RRL jacket and coat (including the suede A1). It fits small in the shoulders and to short in the sleeves....a real drag since most of you here have read how much I looked forward to this one. baldy[1].gif

 

 I actually looked twice to check the size and wife thought the moment I took jacket out of suit bag it would be to small. Since the length is right I wonder if the XL would look sloppy. The leather is actually stiffer then expected and would have been fun breaking in! facepalm.gif

I haven't experienced that problem... I bought both the Washington and Clifton boots as part of the sale in size 13. I usually wear a 14, but found that the Washington boot ran large enough that 13 worked. The Clifton seems to run a little smaller on me (mostly in length). Thinking of having them stretched - has anyone had any luck having boots stretched?

If anyone gets one in small that's too small on them I'd love to get it! (I usually have the opposite problem with things not being small enough)

I've seen some pretty wild prices in the past, but that's got to take the biscuit! And it's an XXL... Good luck trying to flog that you Jackass!

What were your measurements (see first quote) from then?

I had thought you had the jacket and it fit. A previous version?

Fellas.. I just posted an A-2 jacket in Small on eBay. Obviously I'll hook you guys up.

You must return those for either replacement or a refund. The shank in the sole is loose and wasn't set properly. This will cause the boot to creak and click. The fix is very expensive as the sole must be opened up and the shank seated again. Not worth the time or trouble.
