post #18376 of 21553
I spent a little while searching through this Japanese website I found tonight saving all the RRL product photos. I posted a lot of them on my blog which you can check out here http://workingtodeath.tumblr.com

Here is a sample of what you will see


I have one of these coming this week.


Sanders Trench. I got one of these a few weeks ago but it has been too cold to wear it. Its so stiff I can literally stand it up on its own.











There are just way too many good photos to post them all here. Just go check them out at http://workingtodeath.tumblr.com

Stopped in Ralph Lauren in Chicago today and tried a few pieces.

 

-Lightning bolt jacket, can't remember the official name, is nice.  Has a wool lining, though not heavy, and construction is nice.  Looks quite good on too.  In fact I dare say it's better than the Dixon jacket, though I'm not going to go down that road just yet.

 

-Empire Work Jacket looks nice and fits well.  Nowhere near worth the price, but then none of RRL is anyway.  Jacket is thin and would be a Spring/Fall piece, though depending on your climate you might want additional layers.

 

-Reynolds Work Vest looks nice as well.  Very fitted though.  Had to size up and that was pretty much perfect, but another example of RRL sizing being all over the board.  

 

On a side note their sale section was really picked over.  Not much to choose from.  

 

Oh, and I decided to keep my Brandt Wool Work Vest.  Not much for vests/waistcoats, but since I've slimmed down I feel as though I can pull them off much better.  Nice piece and some nice details.  Wool blend and coloring is nice, nice buttons and I like the pockets.

Its the RL oil cloth biker. I grabbed it at Bloomingdales who has a lot more.  The Polo store in there has a pretty good sales section right now with lots of goodies at 50% off

I have both the polka dot and empire and they are some of my favorite pieces.  They are different jackets altogether from the shawl collar version.  Polka dot is slightly slimmer fitting than the empire if you are curious.

I have the lightning bolt jacket and its pretty sweet.  Pretty happy with this season's offerings.

When I first saw the lightning bolt jacket my first thought was oh great and just after I got the Dixon. I guess now that I don't have the Dixon I can look into getting that one.

If you had to choose, which one of the the two do you prefer?  

post #18386 of 21553

They are quite different obviously.  Definitely worth getting both if you can.  Its better in person and especially when worn. :D  Also, the 13 cat fleece jacket is quite good too...

RL models are the worst.

Its a different look and if it suits your look then do both.  Personally, I had to have both and having it around my house for the last few weeks it grows on you and I started to appreciate it more.  I was thinking about returning the empire but I threw on a LE slim fit olive rigid (instead of the typical blue denim) and it balances out that dark/gray top.  Pretty killer IMO.

I like the fleece for sure. I really want to see the varsity in person to try it on before buying so I dont have the same experience as with the Dixon. Does anyone have measurements for the medium?

I own the fleece and would have to agree it is a pretty nice piece, but it does run small so size up when purchasing.
