Nope, never bought a piece of RRL on ebay.  When I want to make room in my closet I sell items.  I understand my comment will put people off, but sometimes you have to say these things to reset the balance.  When a guy literally hounds the thread for a pair of sweatpants, you have to call it.  It's okay for one to voice his disapproval of the direction of the thread.  In fact, it's healthy for the thread as a whole.  I, for one, would just like to see more pages dedicated to things actually relevant to the brand.  It's getting tiresome reading about whether an outlet 20 miles outside of Tampa has straight legs in a 36 X 34.  

 

I'll post the pics, you're right.  Just didn't want 300 responses on which outlet to get them at.

There's a reason we don't like Club Monaco, it simply isn't the same style, and definitely not the same quality.

Just to prove a point, I wanted that Fair Isle Cardigan, refused to pay 300+ for it, because frankly I'd rather save than spend, ended up getting it for 135 off a reseller on eBay. Nothing wrong with that at all.

Some of us do have the means to go crazy and buy a lot of RRL from RL's storefronts, and that's terrific, I'm very glad they can and enjoy seeing them enjoy their purchases.

Instead of criticizing, no matter how ridiculous the requests and comments from certain people are, lets see what you can bring to the table.

Zzzzz.   Stop being a peacemaker.  That guy needed to be told he was being an ass.  And you coming in and coddling him is even worse.  If you want to waste your time telling ass hats like that to check .com and ebay for a pair of sweats or an effing waffle crew be my guest homeboy.  So you bought a Fair Isle crew off a reseller for $135?  What does that tell me?!?  Tells me you should have bought a full price one from Rugby for $10 less.  Tells me you should give up your "finance" hobby.

If someone likes the brand, why does it matter to you where or what price they're buying at? If you can save time and money buying from resellers etc., especially pieces from past seasons, why not? You think everyone lives close by to a RRL store? Do you expect sweatpants and henley guy to fly out of Greece to make the purchase? I know I'm glad that there are some great resellers out there making it easy for the rest of us to enjoy some RRL.

I know it's just a pair of sweatpants to the rest of us, but clearly the guy wants them badly and has no idea where to look. It took seconds to email him a link and I'm happy that he's found something that he really wanted, regardless of what it is. I've been pretty fortunate to meet a few members here that have helped me get some great RRL pieces and I appreciate it!

There's enough douchebaggery going around nowadays, let's keep it out of this thread. Now, time to get drunk. smile.gif

Your logic does not make sense. Maybe you should take up finance as a hobby. Your suggestion that those of us who buy from an entity in the business of reselling, should go to a RL Storefront instead is nonsense. Your suggestion to go to Club Monaco is pretty lame too, since RRL and Club Monaco are very different in style. In essence by mentioning to take a trip to the storefront, you are telling me that I should spend extra and pay full retail (or possibly a sale that is still priced higher than what the entity that resells prices the product for), just for the sake of paying full retail, and partially just to please you here. My point is that I was able to buy both the Fair Isle cardigan as well as some Officer wool trousers for less than $300. If I went to the store and bought those, I would have dropped at least $800 at full retail. My finance hobby seems to be paying off.

Your suggestion that I purchase from Rugby is even worse since they have never sold a Fair Isle cardigan.

I never implied being a peacemaker, i just try to be as helpful as possible and there is nothing wrong with that. Frankly, I was quite happy that everyone on the forum played a long and helped him out whether they knew he was serious or not.

At least the user from greece is well mannered, and not calling anyone a"asshat", "dipshit" or "hacks".

I'd love to see your Livingstone boots, genuinely curious since I've never seen them.

Also, has anyone seen this jacket in store? Thinking about grabbing one, but was curious if anyone had any details about it:

Light Stone Slim Chino

Been searching for this item in store... Went down to the west broadway store a couple days ago since they have a larger stock on items & couldn't find it.

I seen them on FransBoone, and because its a new slim chino fit, I'd rather try them on in store to see how I would have to adjust.

Any suggestions?
post #13869 of 21981

Fine, I'll play nice.  I tried this jacket on last week and it's okay but it is REALLY short in length.  All the jackets that are out right now (and there are a lot of them) are truly short in length in a traditional workwear style.  The rest of the jacket is fine, not too tight.  You probably couldn't get more than a v-neck sweater under it.

So unless you can take the time out of your life and afford a trip to NY or LA and pay full price for everything then you shouldnt wear RRL? Get a life. Not everyone lives near the TWO cities in the US that have standalone RRL stores. Some people don't even live in countries where RRL ships to. There no room for elitism here. Get a life.
And if the brand themselves have to slash prices to 75% to get rid of their stock then whats that tell you?

Yes, went yesterday. Had an amazing selection of RL vintage pieces that were extremely marked down. Vintage boots that sell at their shops for $300+ were going for $25 yesterday. Belts for $10. Clothes from $10-$50. No RRL, just the vintage pieces that they stoke at the stores. They also had a lot of the decorations and objects from the Rugby stores that recently shut down here. By the time I left it was very picked over.

Yeah I was there. Can only describe most of what I saw as junk. Had some sweet bookcases though.
