Watch chain hole so you don't lose your pocket watch.

Anyone own RRL suiting? I need a new audition suit and I already have a Black Label suit which is great, and a couple Blue Label Italian jackets so I'm familiar with how RL fits. Obviously RRL is a more classic aesthetic, but how slim are they in comparison to the other lines? And how's the quality?

This is against StyleForums B&S rules, specifically, requesting to send a payment as a 'gift'.

I think the shirt is great ... it is thick but not super heavy.  I live in California and it would be perfect for the winters here.  My problem was that the sleeves were too long for me, which is normally not a problem for me on their regular shirts.  And I tried it on during private sale, so it wasn't hugely discounted.  At $120, I'd probably grab it and roll the sleeves up.

I would say fit varies on what you are getting. Although RRL suiting can only be bought from a couple of stores. Quality is top-notch - I would say its up to par with RLBL and in some uncommon cases RLPL.

I'd agree with that. Most are true to size but some are slimmer fitting but not so much that you might have to size down. Depends on your body shape I guess.

I think its more of the maker of the jacket and the jacket style, rather than your body size, since those are wavering and your body size really shouldn't be wavering too much comparatively...

Yeah, true. I guess where I was coming from is that if you're a wee bit tubby like me a slimmer fitting/cut suit often means you sometimes have to size up to get it to fit properly as your normal size just won't be flattering but that in itself can leave other problems. Having said that, I've always bought the same size in the suits I have from RRL so it sounds like you know more about this sort of thing than I do (which isn't hard to be fair). I was just trying to say that most of the suits I've tried on have been my normal size but a couple have been a bit slimmer in both the jacket and the trousers so its hard to make a generalisation.

I'd also agree that the quality is top notch. The fabrics are always really interesting that you don't really see anywhere else. I did try on the current tweed suit the last time I was in. Almost picked it up, especially as there weren't many left but I think I'll risk leaving it to sale time.

I have a question about the suit jackets.  I have a couple sport coats that were made a few years ago before the more recent suits were made.  When I got mine, they didn't have the fake button holes sewn in, so you could easily alter the sleeves and move the buttons.  Does anyone have experience with moving the buttons on the newer jackets where the fake holes are embroidered on, specifically in removing all that stitching?  I'm worried it might ruin the fabric.  I never could figure out why manufacturers were so hell-bent on doing that, since most people are going to have to alter sleeves somewhat.

RRL suiting fits little bit on the tight side. I usually wear 40R in PRL and RLPL, I had to size up one in RRL and RLBL.

RRL suitings are made by Caruso, which is same manufacturer for RLBL.

Do we know who makes RRL suiting? Caruso as well?

I remember trying on a tweedy RRL sport coat made by Corneliani a couple years ago.
It was definitely slimmer than a similar Corneiliani made for Polo.

Does anyone have any experience with their Officer Chinos? They look nice and I've been looking for them on sale or maybe second hand but the smallest size I see (including new on their website and complex) is a 30x32. Do they make them in a 28 or 29 waist?

I don't think anyone here is familiar with them, honestly...


But I kid... ofcourse we are.

They are terrific, and the Sz 28/29 does exist, but a bit harder to come by especially after a sale... try to call a few stores, or Customer Service and see if they can help locate what you are looking for.

There's your answer. Although you can find some here and there that are not Caruso, the ones that are Made in Italy are Caruso made, and yes do fit tighter.
