wow the Corbin Messenger on the UK site looks sickly in comparison to the US site. I wonder if those are more accurate pics of it. It's also almost double the price after conversion... $1090

If they look awful, it's for several reasons.

1. Not everything RRL made/makes looks good
2. The shirts don't photo very well. The colors are much more subdued and deep in person
3. Blame it on the mid-90's aesthetic. They are very bowler/workwear/grunge inspired

Now, personally I love the one I have. I bought it because it is 100% rayon and sometimes like that material very much in a shirt. The caveat being that I only wear it more as a shirt-jac, layered over something. Some considerations: these shirts are thick-ish, even the rayon ones, the chest sizing is huge, the length very short, as are the sleeves. Very strange fitting, but can be pulled off nicely in certain ways.

Wow, it's my first time seeing any RRL shirts in that style. I used to have a blue label RL shirt that was 100% rayon but it looked completely different. I can see some appeal in the fact that rayon is super soft. If you get a chance post a pic, I'd be curious to see visually how you pull it off.

Wow well spotted - same product in UK looks so weak! I check both sites but hadn't noticed the difference. Not surprised about the price difference however, us Brits getting stung on prices as usual....

Which is which? They both look the same to me...and they both look nice.

Both do look nice, and both the same, its just that the photographer for the US site, (second pic) did a better job at making the product look its best than the UK pics (first pic) in my opinion, and Sym's. But yes, true, the same ultimately.

I actually like the first one better haha. To each his own I guess.

But ya, very pricey on the uk site.

The first picture is just at a bad angle and is reflecting more of the studio lighting back into the camera from the shine of the leather. The second photo is more accurate to how it would look in person. Im actually surprised they would use that first photo at all considering how much effort they usually put into their product photos.

Thought I'd share my weekends work.

 

New SP14 Varsity Jkt

 

 

 

 

And some patching work to an old RRL Western shirt - i'd gone through the elbow, and my Rigid Slim's - wallet hole.

 

I used an old pocket RRL pocket square for both.

^ Pics of The Lightning bolt varsity has me seriously contemplating on picking it up now. I probably will just hold out for the next sale and scooped that and the limited edition camo field coat.

Great repairs ghost01. I think you've successfully kept the RRL aesthetic. I have a pair of chinos I hope to one day cover completely with patches.

How warm is the spring Varsity?

Thank you.

 

Wouldn't say the Varsity is that warm. It's a light cotton chino on the outside with a felted wool liner body. I've been wearing it under my Belstaff when outside at the moment.

Ghost -  great job on the patchwork, looks good

 

That varsity looks real good, can't wait to wear it

 

Box - Only issue with waiting on sales is not knowing of your size will be around, contact me if you need assistance bro
