I'm guessing Patek bought the last remaining pair

I guess I'll just put it on my ebay saved searches. Looked for it on Rakuten as well, and that's where I got the pic. Sold out there as well. Anybody know RRL will be selling these or something similar (not the black that they have now)?

Darkening is partly from being in my back pocket (1 wash slim fits). Also, leather just gets much darker when it's constantly being handled. If you ever find one, you should go for it - unlike some RRL trinkets I've had, I get the sense this will last a lifetime.

This is a great sweater. super soft, looks better in person and its more of a bomber jacket than a cardigan. would kop in L

Good question, I'd like to know who makes the Clifton and Brunel.

In related news, RL posted 3Q profits up 27%.

I'm guessing the Brunels are made by Thorogood. They've got those same little black marks around the toe stitching.

Description of Cliftons says "Crafted from leather sourced in the USA from a tannery that has been in business since 1872. ".

Darn it, I just placed an order yesterady. I was thinking of this sweater; should have asked first before I finished my order.

So, my second western shirt arrived. It is the blue and pale yellow one. Great shirt. It is "normal" cotton unlike the other red western shirt that I put based previously which is thick cotton--almost a thin sweater.

The real surprise was the navy zip cardigan. Fit is slim and I'm very happy within that. The wool is so thick and itchy (not in a bad way) I feel like I can go on a North Sea fishing trip in the winter with this thing. Also loved the ties. I was hoping to return something but I like it all.

hoit, glad you're putting it to use! i saw the black one and thought to myself, damn i miss the brown one!

tahonng, i think they are putting out a brown wallet this season, i am pretty sure i saw it in the catalogue in store but its not the zip wallet.

Pure genius! I thought they looked similar to the Iron Rangers.

Can anyone speak to its quality and fit?

I've had mine for about 6 months now. They fit a little smaller than TTS (if you order TTS you will notice they feel a little narrow) and my only nit is that the rivets that hold the speed hooks secure are not flush with the leather, and they can start to dig into your legs if laced too tightly. Nice boots though.

So who's going to be the first person to pick these up? Currently a bargain at £450 on the UK website.

Is the UK site flash-only now? I can't get the HTML one with the clothing categories on the left anymore.
