RRL at Unionmade

I thought US retailers weren't supposed to list RRL goods online for sale?
post #15768 of 23876
I thought so too. They've carried RRL for years, just not online. Interesting...

Don't ask for discounts though.

Well they used to prohibit pictures to keep the RRL line more exclusive and "underground," but now that they offer RRL online, I don't think Ralph Lauren cares about other shops posting pictures.

I think it's in Ralph Lauren's best interest to promote RRL at this point. Let's be honest: the brand isn't exclusive, and it's not much of a secret. Although I love RRL (and used to work for them at one point), the shirts are not worth retail. "Made on vintage shuttle looms" in Sri Lanka? At least that's the story behind their "imperfect" oxford shirts. The jeans, and rarely, some of the pants, are the best things they produce. That said, it's hard not to still love their style.

Grew up in New York, but recently moved to Atlanta, GA. What about you?

Its not the pix posted, its the third party online selling that they are allowing. I'm not sure they ever allowed that.

Ugh, wish the dixon varsity wasn't so popular. Now there's no chance of me snagging a XS on discount. Aren't any of your superstitious and afraid of black cats and the number 13!? I actually own a black cat which makes me like the dixon even more.

No it's pretty much exclusive still since the "special" pieces are less likely to be found once sold out meaning...

Unlike blue label they dont get replenishment shipment to restock their merchandise unless its icon pieces such as raw denim, one washes, henleys, and basics. So whatever they get and sellout is pretty much all they have. Those pieces may not comeback unless someone returns it back or you come in store and they purchase it from another store and ship it to your house.

Unionmade have had a RRL section on their website for a while - at least 2 years. It didn't show itself in the drop down menu - you had to put RRL in the search. This is the 1st time you have actually been able to purchase directly online however - before you couldn't add to the cart, you had to call the store to order.

Funny because RRL is the furthest thing from being USA union-made, which is what I thought Unionmade aspired to.

They're just capitalizing off of the name. None of the clothing they sell is actually union made.

LOLLL some of those comments are pretty funny. And this as well..

If you want to have an attractively curated store that sells insanely overpriced clothes designed to mimic the clothes that poor people wore a century ago, fine. But calling your store "Unionmade" (and modeling your logo on the AFL-CIO's) while not selling union made goods is just as asinine and insulting as calling your store "Americanmade" while selling things manufactured in China. It's blatantly misleading. It's fraudulent.
 
On the other hand, subjugating the meaning of a real, serious political issue that affects millions of people's lives to the fact that you like the vibe of the sound of the name of it seems perfectly in character for a store that sells luxury-priced 1890s miners clothes to affluent people who will wear them while sitting inside their air-conditioned advertising agency office job.
