I'm mostly a classic menswear poster normally. I'm trying to discover a few more S&D brands to add up things in my wardrobe. It's pretty full in terms of classic menswear clothing but am looking for nice chunky sweaters and a few casual outerwear pieces.
I visited the NY RRL store and was a bit underwhelmed with the quality of the products. Most of them did not feel really well made. I might be spoiled by the classic menswear side or by the rather early 2000s sweaters I purchased from Dior Homme but I wasn't impressed.
What's your take on the quality of the RRL manufacturing?
I think the quality of RRL great/above average..but when you ask the internet you will get a wide amount of opinion and it depends on who/what you are comparing it too. I'm very fond of RRL sweaters and have been for [too many] years. They last a long time and do not pile (unlike cheaper ones from j. crew or banana I've owned).
I'm not too familiar with Dior Homme - but I'm not sure it's an apples to apples comparison to RRL, but rather should be compared to it's big brother RL's Purple Label. The Purple Label is made in Italy and is the flagship designed label (like Dior Homme). The pricing is more comparable between Purple and Dior Homme as well - while RRL is much - much less.
