Does anyone have experience with the recent Indigo Pullover shirt?

It feels very rigid and I'm wondering whether it will shrink.

I am a fairly slim and I usually where small in most jackets but depending on the fit I can wear XS. I tried looking on the RRL site for measurements but they didn't really have any. If anyone could point me in the right direction or help me out that would be appreciated!

 

Pretty normal. I tried a white denim medium, it was a medium--didn't fit tight.  Normal masculine fit.

Nothing represents tough like dudes wearing RRL and showing off gang signs. rotflmao.gif

That's a lot of blue for a blood to be wearing...

The 1980s marked a booming sales period for catalog retail giants Lands’ End, Talbots, and L L Bean. Popular Merchandise initiated its own catalog operation, focusing on leisurewear for upper-middle-class customers, aiming for a Ralph Lauren look at a much lower price. The first Popular Club Plan catalog was mailed to customers in January 1983 and continued under that name until 1989. Popular Club Plan catalogs often showed the same garment in more than one picture with close-up shots of the fabrics, so customers could get a sense of how the garment looked on the body and be assured of the company’s claims of quality.

Throughout the mid-1980s, sales from catalog operations grew rapidly. “Growth was explosive—25 to 30 percent a year,” Cinader later recollected in the New York Times. Annual sales grew from $3 million to more than $100 million over five years.[4]

 

Seems like they've been ripping off RL since the beginning... the whole brand has been based off of cannibalizing RL's sales and style.

 

Jcrew has a lot of nice Linen stuff on sale. Does anyone know if that stuff 100% Linen or Linen blend? Seems way too cheap after sales and discounts. I couldn't resist picking up a few things.

I'm planning on going to Woodbury this Sunday.

Is it naive to think that they might have any RRL or will it be completely wiped out?

Not a re-seller...just looking to get some pieces since I never ever get to see any in person before buying

Those are not gang signs.

I've heard really nice things about their Irish linen.

I would just keep checking eBay. There seems to be a few in large sizes so there's a chance they are beginning to hit the outlets now.

Just noticed this Vintage Denim Barn Jacket conch729 has listed. It's new with tags which is quite surprising - there's no way that original (1990's) RRL is hitting outlets is there?

I dunno but its ugly. Looks like something Billy Bob Thornton in Slingblade would wear.

the stickler in me has to note "cannibalizing" is more of a term used when a company eats into the sales of its own company with a new product that takes away from market segments of other products it already sells... 

ok i'm done

Everything's possible.

 

I've seen 90s Polo blazers couple times last year and some really old Polo sweaters...
