The new one is better than the last season one. Better leather and will look better once broken in too. Better fit also IMO

The only problem is its brown :/ I prefer a black one. Also, I like the idea of mismatched zippers on the previous racer. With that said, I only saw it in on the website. How did it look in person? Leather wasn't that nice?

Thank you

My apologies if this has been covered before, but can anyone with more RRL experience speak to the value of the current RL promotion?  Seems like the 30 with the 15 Stack comes to about 40% off the eligible items.  How are those prices say compared to other times of the year or what one may be able to find in a B&M RRL stores in NYC (the only ones I'd probably have a chance of visiting within the next year or so).

 

I see many things I like but, like many, am on a budget.  Trying to figure out whether I should pull the trigger now, or if there is a better time to do so.  I'm not specifically tied to a lot of specific items, just more or less expanding my RRL collection by pairing some items I think would go well together.

Eventually sale items will get progressively marked down, up to 70% off or so (depending on the item). This is just the first round of sales.

Found these on clearance for $15. Very impressed with it.

Many thanks, figured as much....do you know roughly what time of year that 'second' round would occur?  Post-Christmas I take it?  I'm more or less tied to online purchases at the moment unless I specifically knew when good deals were to be had at the B&M stores, in which case I could finagle a trip downstate.

The black one is nice but its that fake distressed RRL greyish black which i personally dont like all that much.

The current sale only goes for about another week then everything is back up to full price

Yes this is the first round of sales, but unlike other years (when RRL was perhaps less well known due to the lack of online presence) a lot of product is disappearing already. It's not like a few years ago when you could find lots of different sizes available during the 70% off sales. RRL is now able to shift so much more stuff via the website that you might be lucky to find your size come the 2nd or 3rd round of sales (when the discounts are deepest). I have missed out on a few things I was interested in recently (on the website) because I wasn't quick enough to pull the trigger, and I'm generally a size large. One of my more recent purchases was the sun bleached shawl sweater which I needed in an XL - I managed to purchase the last one (in the US apparently, according to Dastig), and that was in a 1st round of sales back in June.

Anyone purchase the faded merino wool cardigan?

Trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on the navy version of the sale piece or buy one of these (which don't appear to be on sale):

Looking into the RRL Meyers Leather vs the RL Lambskin A-2 Bomber

 

Can anyone comment on the leather quality on both?

 

And how does RRL fit? Is it slimmer than RL usually is?

 

Thanks!

I recently picked up some selvedge officer's chinos and deadstock road chinos, and am happy with both. It's been a struggle to find trousers, especially the officer's chinos, in 30x34, but both pairs have turned out to fit great. Both fit very similarly, but the deadstock road chinos have a higher waist. The details and denim are quite nice, although the outseam is a little goofy with the flap...

Just received the Limited Ed 1922 15oz Japanese buckle backs..They are a sight to see & even better than I imagined.  I actually like that they have the navy pocket stitching which I know most take off.  The only thing that surprised me is the thigh being slimmer than I expected.  I thought they were going to be more of a vintage cut?
