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.

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.

Just as "Navajo Nation" threatened to sue me, and is suing UO for millions because they advertise "Navajo" themed clothing that is not made by actual Navajo and own copyright on the word Navajo. It's currently going to the Supreme Court...

 

Maybe they'll sue Jeep next, once they trademark "Cherokee."

 

Oh yeah guys, buy your stylish, REAL unionmade clothing here:

They were out like a month ago in stores.

Numbered raw denims always make you want to buy.

I have a pair. They arent crumpled up like in the photo (which makes them look like a Rinse), theyre Rigid. Cool jeans. They also arent numbered, just "limited edition"

Putting LE stamp is a great way to justify charging $340 for raws instead of $240... That said, they do look pretty awesome, a nice change from black/blue denim.
post #15807 of 20085
Saw those limited edition in person a few weeks ago, looke more gray than olive. Here's a pic from tonight, all the current collection: road chinos, selvedge shirt , scarf, braces from the sale. Girlfriends dress is also rrl
