Yeah it's funny.. What's funnier is he found 5000+ other people with loose screws to buy his overpriced RL/RRL clothes...

 

A crappy Gitman shirt runs about $195 these days, tacky PRPS jeans made in "china" are $250. I don't see why he can't try flogging RRL given it's popularity and prestige anyway.. relax and let the used RRL market sort it out.

Ah, yes, conch. He's currently the source of one of the most absurd listings I've ever seen on ebay. Here's a 38 RRL belt:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RRL-Ralph-Lauren-Brown-Tooled-Leather-P-Wing-Brass-Buckle-Polo-Belt-38-/111125379195?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Belts&hash=item19df96b87b

$600 for this belt.

Nevermind that there's currently the same belt in same condition in same size for $179, like ten of the exact same belt in the same size as NWT have been sold in the last 3 months all for sub $100, even as low as $30-ish bucks.

I don't care how RRL hungry the Japanese market is, some sellers just have loose screws.

This one is funny too.. old, ugly, used bootcut RRL jeans for only $895!

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RRL-Ralph-Lauren-Polo-Denim-Jeans-Pants-Lot-Retail-1400-waist-32-/111180310487?pt=US_CSA_MC_Jeans&hash=item19e2dce7d7

 

Truth is, listing is .05/mo if you have a store so since the bulk of his items are Polo, he keeps the RRL inventory as expensive as possible and almost unattainable to attract more buyers and attention to his outlet store Polo crap he has unlimited supply from outlets, which looks cheap and affordable in comparison which he can offer to buyers who don't know the difference of RL's various labels, or anything about fashion at large and are looking to purchase a gift for their grandson (international, elderly, women, etc). Shysty marketing, same goes with BP and a few others.

 

Only 200 of the 2000 items he has listed are RRL, so he's not in a hurry to get rid of stuff that makes him look like a purveyor of high end designer clothing, rather than Polo outlet reseller.

I could understand that if he was solely dealing in new clothing. The fact that he's trying to flog his skanky used jeans for $900 must make him insane?

I picked up the slim fit chinos in the faded navy and they're CRAZY awesome. Basically the top block of the officer chino with a really tapered leg. Pretty perfect. I'm sad they only have one color this season, so if anyone has some other colors in 32-32 they want to part with hit me up.
post #16312 of 21621
alright, so ordered the 36 and a comparable 34 in the rigid officer chino...fit is as expected on each

the surprising bit, is that the material feels noticeably different between the two. 34s are much more rigid, feel slightly heavier weight (maybe just its rigidity) and the selvedge line is plain, just the rigid color

the 36s are softer and the selvedge line has a red line running through it. I'm sure they're both the same rigid officer chino, as I ordered them from the same page at the same time.

any ideas what's going on with this?
post #16313 of 21621
^ check the pocket bags. The ones with the red line are probably 9 oz and the other 10.

funny, and nice catch...noticed that after posting...34s are 10.8oz twill, others are 10.5oz. confused about how/why that would happen though? didn't think anything would be diff from 34 to 36 aside from sizing...what's the deal?
post #16315 of 21621
the 36s were left over from a previous run

confused...like, these are last season shit or something else?

Where'd you pick them up, and was it at a reasonable price?

I know it's been mentioned before but BP's photos are the creepiest. The fact that he wears all those NWT garments is disgusting. One he stuffs himself into a tight shirt, it ceases to be NWT in my book. A jacket over a shirt is one thing but the fact that he wears all those knit garments for a picture is rather off-putting. What's wrong with a mannequin?

rl.com, and you'd have to ask ralph if it was reasonable--paid retail

I bought a pair a few weeks ago from a Ralph store.
They were 10.5.
