Yea man, fuck J. Crew for copying a pair of repro chinos that are a direct reproduction of a pant that dozens of different firms (not including Ralph Lauren!) produced for years and years. You can't complain about copying in the repro market when literally everything is already a copy.

Honestly if/when the J Crew / Wallace and Barnes chinos go on sale (their higher priced items do tend to get discounted eventually), I'll check them out.

don't disagree with the last comment necessarily, but if you're going to enter the market, add something, don't just poach what already exists

 

Oh please.

 

Every raw denim jean ever made by anyone ever is a clear rip off of someone else based on the details, even the pricing, and some of them even have the audacity to charge more than others

 

Don't make raw denim if raw denim already exists.  If you do, add something, like pink butterflies on the back pocket.

 

Funny how you (not particularly you) laud RRL for staying classic and true to original garment designs and dismiss someone else for doing the same thing.

Does anyone know what the sizing is like on RRL denim jackets? I am thinking about getting one but I am unsure if they how they fit. 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!

Does anyone have experience with the recent Indigo Pullover shirt?

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

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

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

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