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?
This also depends big time on what size you need. I always end up missing items by trying to wait for further markdowns because I need 29s and smalls.
I would say very few items actually make it to 70% off on RL's website.
Generally, yes it fits slimmer.
Some of those repro leathers fit more old-school though. The black leather Cafe Racer mentioned above for example fit me pretty boxy in my usual size small.
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):
The Shaker in black is the way to go IMO.
Thanks for the suggestions on the sale strategy everyone. Wound up picking up the Dixon Jacket in Large along with a pair of the Yuma buckle-backs in 32X34. They were the last ones so I figured I'd pounce on the things I liked for which there appeared limited quantity, and anything else I'm good with a wait-and-see approach.

Looking good Namor, love the trouser boot combo! Have they reduced the weight to 9oz now? looks like these are getting lighter by the year!
Nice! How's your other pair looking from that old contest? Would love to see how those are looking now as well.
I think I've washed mine once lol literally have been treating my officer chinos like a pair of raw denim lol
