post #13291 of 20891
Just got the new books in earlier this week of the new RRL groups.... When do you guys think they'll post the new groups online?

Some recent purchases from me. Couldn't find anywhere good to take pictures in the new flat apart from with me sitting on the floor and I've only just noticed I'm showing a wee bit of leg occasionally.shog[1].gif

Western Shirt, the pockets seem a little different on this one compared to the others I have.

Selvedge chambray workshirt. Picked this up in Liberty and according to the guys in RRL it's actually about a year old. The detail is incredible but not sure if it comes through in the pics. Might take it back as I'm not sold on the fit. Will prob put a fit pic up later to get feedback as it seems huge in the shoulders.

Repaired western chambray. Probably not to everyone's taste but I thought this one was really well done. I really like some of the embroidery on it. The change in colour doesn't seem as drastic in real life.

Grey herringbone trousers. These things are ridiculously thick, lined to about the knee as well. Got them hemmed and put a chunky cuff on them.

FInally, a couple of suits. Does nobody else here pick up any of the suits? The first one is a glen plaid with a wee bit of red running through it. It's really thick and warm. Again, I cuffed the trousers.

And finally, a tweed suit. Didn't cuff the trousers on this one, got them hemmed to sit just on top of the shoe. Love the fabric on the back of the vest.

Slim Straights are back?

 

They made them about 5 years ago as a womens cut, I still have 2 or 3 pairs laying around somewhere. Obviously these new ones probably have a much higher rise and looser seat/thigh.

Personally speaking I think the Bowery boots with the brogue cap toe are one of the best looking boots around.. Iv probably looked at RRL CLOTHINGS eBay store a 1000 times just for those. Unfortunately my wife would divorce me if I was to ever pull the trigger on a pair.

Iv been toying with grabbing the Viberg service boots for a lil while. What are the construction like for RRL boots? I ask because iv bought yves st laurant and Dolce Gabanna shoes which had a great look but made like a pair of Aldo shoes.

The first couple of Bowerys were made by Julian Boots in L.A. - but they current crop are made in England.

I think Cheaney makes them currently.

Yeah, they're made by Cheaney.

$800 is way too much for them.
They were on sale for around $450 when I bought mine last year.
They're nice enough for that price but that last is kind of odd. Very wide/high volume but kind of short.
It kind of reminds me of Tricker's 4444 only shorter.

That explains a lot. I have a pair that I thrifted about a year ago and the rise is shockingly low. The fit in the seat/thigh is very similar to my slim fits with a wider calf and 8" leg opening.

No, some are EG, some C&J, and some Cheaney (But I think that's limited to RRL for now)

Yeah, I was told by one of the guys in store that the Bowery's were made by Cheaney.

How does this seller have so many of them? Where they on sale on the website or hit the outlets? In years past, it was hard to find previous versions at retail.

The bowerys were on sale in store and there was a ton of stock now that it's a bigger shoemaker making them but as zippyh said fits a bit weird and I wasn't too impressed by quality / build

I have about 10 pairs myself. They were on sale down to about $380 at their lowest in store and all disappeared as soon as they went on sale.

They are Cheaney made. I had a pair of factory 2nds that had Cheaney insoles instead of the RRL ones since they never made it to RRL.

Anyone looking to get a pair should size down half a size from their normal size. (7.5 for me when im normally an 8)
