I've seen it. It's a bit of a bland shade of loden IMO. For comparison's sake the loden green on the shawl button cardigan is much more attractive. To me, the charcoal and clipper are better colors.

Is it blander (paler?) than the image suggests or just generally uninteresting? How much does it differ form the site?

I loved the color of the Shetland Shawl but it seemed too grungy to me for some reason, I don't think I could have pulled it off. I kind of wished it was more of that uniform dark pine green shown on the website.

I think it is more uniform and looks maybe a tad bit browner than the photo. The RRL store I was in was somewhat dark, so maybe it looks closer to the photo than I remember.

As you know, the sweater is top notch quality, if you think you will like the color, go ahead and get it

As with anything, it depends what you are sizing down from :satisfied:  I wear a 34 in most slacks, and a 33 in RRL denim.  I also wear a 33 in 3Sixteen denim.

It's doing great. Zipper still works perfectly, and other than a load of darkening to the exterior it looks like new. I'm sure the black is good too...

Looking through king of vintage and found this pic, guess we found the source of inspiration for last seasons shirt.

the sizing was really off on those t-shirts.  i ordered a XL and it fit like a medium...  had to return it.

Yeah it got dark huh. Color in photos is pretty accurate. I've used this every day since I got it from you, around 2.5 years or so (which should explain the patina).

Jeez, 2.5 years... I can't believe how time flies!

But speaking of varsity jackets, someone posted this repro a few pages back that's really cool:

Does anyone know of any other companies that produce this style varsity jacket with non-snap buttons? I know golden bear does some for Unionmade but those are just as pricy as RRL.

Would someone please tell me who makes that second varsity jacket and where I can get one? The Japanese website Motostyle doesn't have that one. Thank you.

The second one is Golden Bear for the Unionmade store. I believe that style is released seasonally.
