I have not, but I am pretty sure they are made by the same Italian companies that make the Black Label suits. I think it might be Corneliani. I'm also pretty sure they are fully canvassed, at least that's what I've heard. So it's a top of the line suit, just with Western styling.

Actually, this thread says Caruso makes RRL suits. But that may be outdated. RL has changed suit makers before. In any case, Caruso or Corneliani can both make top end suits.

Great to know! Thanks,

I also wanted to see if someone actually has one, or tried one on. Was interested in seeing how they look In real life. Lol

That's my main concern right now I look a little ridiculous with it on and won't really get any wear out of it in LA

I tried one on at the last Soiffer Haskin sale. It was a double breasted, charcoal pinstripe. It was very nice - made in Italy by Caruso I believe so yes, fully canvassed. I was tempted to buy it but I would never wear a DB suit. It looked (and felt) a bit "costumey" too - kind of like I was on the set of Boardwalk Empire.

On another note, I just bought a charcoal suit by Polo. Made in Italy (Caruso again I believe) and it's amazing. Fully canvassed, wool / cashmere and very slim with narrow lapels. Really amazing quality. Got it for $350 reduced from $1700. Jacket fits beautifully considering it's off the rack, but will have to get the trousers hemmed. Also, the trousers have internal brace buttons, so it looks like I'll be investing in my 1st pair of braces soon icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I wish I could look like I belong on the set of Boardwalk Empire at all times.

Most likely the PRL suit is Corneliani, I haven't heard of Caruso doing anything other than RRL, RLPL, RLBL, and Rugby (for Ralph Lauren at least)

Yeah, it's the Black Label fit. Now I think I remember someone saying they are Black Label suits with different detailing.

Haha yeah - it's a cool show.

Is there a way of telling who (Caruso / Corneliani) made it - maybe from the interior labels? Just curious is all.

This is the thread to check. You can post the label and see if someone can identify it. Caruso and Corneliani are popular, so it's likely the answer is already in there somewhere, too.

That's awesome... With our RRL addiction I'm surprised nobody owns at least one suit haha.

I think this year I'm switching to RRL chinos and henleys. Last year I was in denim & indigo at full affect... I bought the brown ankle boot to get ready for the spring.. Gona be a comfortable season transition for me, can't wait.

I own a pair of these RRL Rigid Low Straight jeans and have been wearing them since this past summer without washing or soaking. I must have worn them over 50 times and I'm at a point where I feel that I should wash them to minimize crotch blow-out and because they're beginning to smell a little funky. I already froze them in a bag a few times to cut back the odor, but I'm ready to either soak them in the tub while wearing them, or wash them inside out in cold water with little detergent and then hang them to dry. I'd like some feedback with suggestions as to the best way to go about this, along with pros and cons. Your helpful feedback is much appreciated! smile.gif
