The cotton wool blend is a nice thick material, pretty unique fabric. I haven't felt the like. It is one of those things that I look for when wanting to add to my collection these days, those special things that make RRL seem unique. I no longer want to buy pants from RRL that while they may have many nuances, be specially milled, etc, in the end seem like an expensive pair of chinos similar to other brands. The heavy 11oz twill cottons, etc. make the brand special. Stuff like these that list at $260 don't really move me that much.

Saw the Vintage Herringbone shirt at the sale. Sort of on the fence about it. It's extremely rigid and didn't fall as cleanly as I want in my shirts. But the color and look were nice. What's the deal with this shirt? Should it be washed right away, or worn as long as possibly like a pair of rigid jeans?

What size was the shirt? It sounds more interesting now that you describe it. Although it seems like anything in a medium is long gone.

No mediums in it. Just larges. There were some mediums left in other stuff - a few flannels for sure. Can't remember anything specifically, though.

I totally agree. I have over 500 RRL items in my closet. I can go in to any of the stores now and walk out without having a second thought about missing out on anything. It's kind of nice not needing more clothes. There are, once in a while, exceptions however...

I have those naval chinos. Those and the deadstock cottonwork pants are my favorite trousers from this season. I recommend them if there are any fence sitters.

I saw the dead stock cotton pants in store and I agree, prolly the best pant piece this season. Pics online don't do them justice. They are also selvage

Curious about this as well...

In early 2012 you claimed to have over 200 items, now you claim to have over 500 items. Not a single pic of any of it. lol8[1].gif

Best bet is to call a rrl store and have them check all stores

Saturdays, the knit i have looks similar to the photos Harvey posted but as a turtleneck. I'll send you more info when I can, I dropped off my haul and havent been back home yet.

For everyone that PM'ed me, I'll get back to you tonight or tomorrow. I wont be home today either but didnt want you guys to think I was ignoring your messages. The naval wool chinos seem to be a hit with alot of you... some input on what I should do is appreciated. Only one person asked for a proxy on these, so I was going to list the rest on here or eBay. Price came out to about $150 with the discount from $390 and then NYS sales tax. Whats a fair price to charge to make it worthwhile for you guys? I was going to list at $250-$275 on ebay, but obviously not as much here. I want to be fair but also make a little something for my time, and i dont have many pairs to go around.

Think I'm going to make a final visit tomorrow am as soon as they open. Got another email today suggesting there would be deeper discounts. As it'll be the last day I hope they'll just want to flog everything at 99% off :-)
