Speaking of Drake, and this has absolutely nothing to do with RRL at all, but I photographed him for the cover of Billboard Magazine a few month ago. Really cool guy. He even let me wear every single chain.

How does this large look to you guys? I feel like its a bit big but if i sized down to a medium it would only look good with my skinnier fitting pants.

looks pretty good to me (but i'm also not terribly picky).  i think after a few washes the shirt may shrink a little and look even more fitted.  i have the same problem - in between a small and a medium.  when in doubt i always get the medium hoping it'll shrink just a little.

I think I'll probably end up grabbing both of these too, definitely the first one even though its basically a cross between two previous RRL shirts that I already have.

Looks like they've gone all in on the indigo based stuff this season after doing the polka dot workshirt in FW12 and the star shirt in SS13. Was in the London shop at teh weekend and although Empire collection isn't out on the shop floor the guys pulled a few pieces out for me including both these shirts which are really nice. There's a really cool vest with what I think is a wabash print as well. Ended up picking up the Allan work jacket.


I've worn the vest with a flannel shirt and jeans, its great for where I live because it gets cold but not too cold so I often wear it instead of a jacket.

Theyre slim fit. They came out last summer and are the same jeans that are on sale now:

Scored a used pair of black slims for $90 on ebay.  I've been wanting a pair for a while and they should be the perfect size.  Hope it works out.

You actually are looking for the Cone denim version?

Not sure if this has been posted, but interesting article about Polo Country, the brand precursor to RRL

"Old-time rocking chairs ($350 to $1,000)

Twig brooms ($85)

Rolls of mattress ticking, stone-washed denim and buffalo-check cotton ($35 to $55 a yard)

Flannel shirts ($45 to $97)

Authentic late-19th-century quilts ($575 to $825)

Hooked rugs ($350 to $1,200)

Old postcards ($2.50 each)

New socks ($9 to $16 a pair)

Shearling-lined slippers (about $100 a pair)

Sweaters in American Indian-inspired patterns ($405)

Weather vanes ($425 to $1,200)

Birdhouses ($325 to $550)

No, this isn’t a listing of prices from the latest Brooklyn Flea. These figures actually come from a 1988 New York Times article on the long forgotten “Polo Country Store” which once occupied a corner on the fourth floor of Ralph Lauren’s Rhinelander Mansion (although the article doesn’t use this name) at Madison and 72nd in New York. While Ralph might not have any interest in creating a public archive (something I’ve never been able to understand), the New York Times fortunately does, and it’s there that I came across this incredible article, which quite frankly tells more about the Polo Country brand then I’ve ever read before. Aside from the prices (which really don’t seem to have changed that much over the past two and a half decades, I mean some sweaters still do hover around the $400 mark, although you could definitely tack a 1 in front of those flannel shirt prices), there’s some pretty boastful quotes from Mr. Lauren himself, and a particularly interesting passage on the layout of the store which was inspired by the 1953 Western “Shane” and sounds like it looked very similar to a RRL store. Unfortunately, the one thing the article doesn’t have is photos, but it still provides a fascinating look at Polo Country, a brand that acted as a precursor for so much of what RL is doing today."

The new style Japanese denim. Find the fit is better on me.

Have they actually started switching the icon denim to Cone?

I saw them earlier this season in the store and loved the material but they never had my size so could never try on. Hoping they work. 

I got these today. Actually, I wasn't sure of sizing, so I bought both a 34x34 and 36x34. It turns out I'm kind of in between so unsure which to keep. The 34 is definitely "slimmer" but the rise feels very, very low, and I am tall. The 36, however, more comfortable but a bit too lose in the waist and feels kind of sloppy. 

 

My question -- does this fabric stretch? 

 

I personally love the color and fabric and it's a good alternative to the rigid/dark wash denim when you still want to maintain a clean look. But sizing ins't ideal...
