The Official RRL Thread - Page 1036

post #15526 of 23382
1 x RRL Terrance Belt, Vintage effect very dark brown for the equivalent of US $20

1 x RRL Sateen Ranch Jacket in cream colour for equivalent approx US $145

2 x RRL checkered work shirts, both approximately $20 each

I only value these items, the rest were bits and pieces of regular stuff of no interest but purchased to a make up for the "Special Gift".
The RRPrice of the Jacket alone nearly balance the total cost of my purchases so I'm not complaining about money, it was just irritating that I should be advised to complain to the Manager just for asking to rescan 4 items. The funny thing was that no one seemed to actually hear what I was saying, they listen, listen but they just do not hear or unwilling to understand.

As always those RRL items are exquisitely manufactured, the uniformity of the checkered lines, quality of material, the cutting etcetera etcetera.
As I said , not much else RRL..................apart from plentiful RRL caps which I didn't purchase so as not to spoil my non existant hair style.

Apology for the poor pics quality due to the phone's camera..................Nikon was earlier confiscated by the Little Ones.

When dealing with Factory stores you're dealing with all the reject employees RRL/Polo stores would never hire. It's nice to see your experience in the UK is no different than the ones we deal with here in the US. Next time go to the RRL store and you'll be treated differently, but you won't get any of those 80% off discounts..

 

Also I think it's funny you bolded the part as if Ralph Lauren or someone from corporate actually wastes time reading this thread.

As my irritation have receeded, I have edited the previous post.

That said, I find the lowest quality RRL stuff I've owned (weird patterns, uneven stitching, poor construction) almost always has a 'Made in Sri Lanka' tag.

Which is the reason why the Chinese do not purchase Chinese manufactured goods, they have a tendancy to purchase foreign Brands manufactured in its original Country, which are sold outside of China, by travelling abroad or visiting Special Administrative Regions.

I am Chinese, I do not have a masochistice attitude of "bashing" myself, merely stating a fact to the reason why others may prefer Made in USA.

We have little trust in ourselves because we are wiser to ourselves..............

Then why are there bus loads of Chinese/Asian tourists going to outlets and Polo stores and cleaning them out of their cheaply made Chinese Polo crap?

 

Why do Chinese swarm the Coach outlets, even though 99% of it comes from China.

 

They clean out Jcrew as well, where most of it is from Macau.

 

They do not all care where it's made, as long as the brand is American.

Anyone know if the Bleeker st store carries anything good sale wise?  I'm heading to that store today because its close to the Levis Meatpacking store for some LVC's.  I am hoping to try on the slim straights for a possible buy

post #15532 of 23382

According to context:

Size Waist Rise Thigh Knee Leg Opening
31 33 10 11.5 8.25 7.75
32 33 10 11.5 8.25 7.75

Which doesn't make sense. I've also seen two different 32 SF rigids measured at 16 and 16.5 by the same seller.

Still don't know if I should size up from the Officer's Chino or not. Retuning them and exchanges are a huge hassle for me since I'm not in the US.

I just finished a great day at LVC and RRL.  I was shocked at how great the Low straight rigids fit.  I honestly can say they are by far the best fitting jean I have ever tried on. I had so many doubts on the fit and the hem being to wide for my liking.  They were actually slimmer in the hem than the slim straights I had my eye on.   These will be mine as soon as I get my funds in order again.

+1 . best fitting jeans I've found.

FWIW my One Wash slim fit rigids in 31x32 measure 33" in the waist new. They stretched out to about 34"

Hi Everyone

 

Do any of you know where I can find one of these floating around in a size small?

 

 

 

I spoke to Dastig, no dice on finding one in stores or online.  I was hoping that someone here had an extra or purchased the wrong size.  Let me know.  I'll do my best to make it worth your while.  

 

Thank you,

 

Nathan
