For those of you who don't know how I do things - once I say that something stops, it stops.  Immediately.  I don't care who got in the last word.  If there are any additional posts that require deleting, those posters will sit out the next week or two.  Stop the bickering.

 

fwiw, I know one of the designers of the original iteration of RRL - we actually did a collaboration with her some 6 years ago now.  And I was around when RRL had their first store on Third Street in LA.  So, that's how far back my association with the brand goes - back into the early 2000s.  

 

Thanks,

 

Fok.

Incidentally, if you have any problems with this, PM me.  Do not post them here.  I can't promise that I'll read the PMs, or answer them, but at least you'll not get timed out or restricted from this thread.  Unless, of course, you decide to take an internet swing at me, which would just be silly.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Just in stores or online too?

Going to just say what I have to say here after checking this threads for months and continually being disappointed.

 

There are two sides to this whole thing. On one hand, I 120% back RRLC on what he's saying. This thread is a joke insofar as the constant stream of "SALE?!?! SALE!??! SALE?!?!?" questions and sizing questions that can be answered in maybe ten minutes by calling a B&M store; there seems to be no room for discussion here about anything substantive. No one ever talks about this brand in an engaging way.

 

Every once in a while, I don't see a problem with the odd sizing question or link to a similar item by a different brand. But, I get it. RRLC is passionate about the brand, and he engages in the reselling and I guess if I was involved as he I wouldn't want people shitting up the thread, especially having been here since page one. That being said, at the end of the day I don't want people to feel as though they can't ask an innocent question. As I mentioned, there are two sides to this problem, but the scale seems to have tipped in the direction of this thread being a complete shitstorm of petty questions that detract from the overall appreciation of the RRL brand. 

 

So, here's my solution in order to avoid being a victim of what I am criticizing: Let's try to come up with topics, post fit pics, etc.. At the end of the day, you can either sit here and bitch or try to help out. I am going to try and be more active because I am tired of this nonsense. Here's my first question:

 

How did you get involved in RRL clothing? What was your initial exposure to the brand?

 

Growing up, my mom always used to buy me the PRL pony shirts at huge Marshall's discounts for church. I always had a knee-jerk reaction to the brand as it was the epitome of "conformity" for me. After being unwillingly exposed to Ralph Lauren for so many years and slowly becoming interested in personal style, I realized that Ralph's vision wasn't just business-casual white America. It extended far beyond that, and I discovered RRL. Nowadays my closet is filled with RRL. I like the military collections more than anything (several relatives served during WWII) and was disappointed to see that there was nothing like that being offered this fall.

Brand actually started in the early 90's when I was living in Manhattan. This was pre Mansion days and there was the top half of the second floor built out as RRL. I think the brand was then shuttered for a few years and then resurrected.

PS. On another forum I frequent vendors are required to list " trade member" under their name so people know what point of view they are coming from. I did not know RRL CLOTHING is a reseller. It now explains many of his postings.

I'm a big bag collector. I stumbled upon an amazing vintage, military inspired bag a few years back and realized it was RRL. Had never heard of the brand before. Now 80% of my wardrobe and nearly all my bags, belts, wallets, etc are RRL.

 

And I'm pretty sure I remember seeing some ww2 inspired pieces in one of the upcoming collections...

Can i start another "RRL CLOTHING THREAD (Poor people edition)"
post #20684 of 21395
for those of you who want close-up pictures of RRL pieces, there are several Japanese retailers that post their own pictures taken from several angles so you can see the details front and back

nice to see the Limited Edition stuff, too

I just recently (I'm in my 40's now) started paying serious attention to what I wear when I'm not at work. I have to wear company logo attire at work, so I'm limited to when I can wear my own clothes.

 

My style has always been the rugged, wicked worn look to clothes. Maybe with a western flair to them too. I own, but not limited to a couple pairs of cowboy boots, and when I go out, it's mostly jeans and a t-shirt, or jeans and a button down shirt. It wasn't until a year ago that I discovered RRL and immediately fell in love with the style. It suits me perfectly, and although in all reality, too expensive for me to buy with regularity, I will buy pieces that call my name. I don't give two fucks about paying MSRP if what I am looking at is what I want. But a sale is always nice :)  I just have to wait longer than some others to buy up more of it as the months go by.

 

I have about 8 RRL pieces to my collection and cannot wait for the heat to go away so I can start wearing more than just the t-shirts. I'm in NC, it's the dog days of summer down here now!
