Great collection & nice pics @Sym. I can think of a few more: the Cassidy Brown Clydes (dark brown, see https://www.lyst.com.au/clothing/rrl-selvedge-clyde-trouser-cassidy-brown/), the "Black" sulphur-dyed Officer's Chino (which looks gunmetal grey & also issued in a Clyde cut) plus the herringbone olive/green Officer's Chino (non-selvedge).

I also believe there has been two indigo Clydes: a 10.8 oz rigid twill & a lighter weight twill with red/white selvedge a few seasons prior (my photo: https://www.instagram.com/p/tMoIkkq7ZU/).

Thanks! The Indigo are probably my least favourite/worn pair, I would have probably sold them by now if I didn't get them tapered below the knee. Also a few months ago I attempted to purchase the "black" gunmetal ones from a sf member's ebay account but due to a last minute glitch I couldn't get the bid through.

I bought the blacks in NYC a couple of years ago in 30x32 but they never fit me so PM me if they're your size as they're NWT.

Not my size unfortunately.

thanks for any experience/thoughts on the subject.

Not sure about shrinkage, but after you've washed them they should be pretty easy for a tailor to take in. Definitely recommend washing first, though, in case there's any shrinkage.

Ralph Lauren Corp's stock suffered its largest one-day drop - 21% - in company history this month after a huge drop in year-on-year sales during Q4. The new company CEO, Stefan Larsson (formerly of H&M, Old Navy) is set to release his turnaround plan in May, and it will be interesting to see if or how RRL is affected. Many analysts say the company has too many brands and needs streamlining. I find it hard to believe that he would mess with RRL, but who knows?

Well I am sure the change in how they run their sales has a bit to do with the $100mil drop in sales.  The fact that they are eliminating RRL womans would make me think RRL men will be next to go.  I would love to know what their sales over profits are for RRL at MSRP compared to RRL at discount.  Larsson is def against dropping prices since he feels better inventory management will prevent them from having to discount like they once did.  

 

It sounds like they were a shit show with bad management NOT a lack of buyers causing this drop in stock prices.  I read (Forbes) that they are trying to implement a demand driven supply cycle but what the hell were they doing before!?!  I thought RL would have a better grip on forecasting supply and demand but everything I have read says they miss way to much.  They also rode the dept store thing way to long and should have been thinking restructure years ago but of course thats easier said than done

I know we are all RRL biased, and so is Ralph Lauren. I don't imagine Ralph would allow for his 'baby' to take the big hit to sacrifice dollars? I imagine they'll streamline inventory and cut back on brick & mortar locations before killing another brand. If anything, wouldn't they trim back Purple Label and downsize the options available through the Polo brand? However, I do know that RRL's profit margin is slim to none because of the price point and number of sales they end of running in order to clear previous seasons. Then again, what do I know. I just hope RRL never goes away ha

An employee friend told me black label is getting cut and will be no more

Black label is rolling into purple label
post #25588 of 27147

A very dear friend of mine who designs for the company informed me that it has less to do with management and inventory, and everything to do the fact that people just aren't spending money like they used to, leading to lackluster sales for most if not all divisions of RL. From what I understand, RRL will continue to exist, despite barely breaking even.

The stronger US Dollar is also translating into a 50% price rise for many non-US customers like me.

I'm guessing much of the loss has been with Polo - Polo has been selling on it's logo for a number of years and I'm not seeing the same number of logo obsessed kids around.
