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

I've been wearing Polo forever and got into RRL about a year ago. I agree with streamlining inventory. Just look at the spring 2016 catalogue. It's huge. Maybe they need to stick with just the core items and a few limited edition pieces.

They are only 6 RRL stores (4 in NY and 2 in CA) and a bunch of RL stores that carry RRL. I was really surprised when RL recently opened the RRL store in Brookyn. If people aren't spending, etc., then why did they open a new store? Full disclosure: what do I know??? I just hope they never give rid of RRL.

It's kind of a bad ass jacket. I would love to be able to pull that look off, just don't think I could.

Ralph closed a few RRL stores within the last two years because, as I understand it, rent was too high and sales weren't quite justifying keeping the locations open. Now they're in Williamsburg, BK, an area that continues to gentrify and attract many young, well-to-do, fashion-conscious folks. Not sure what kind of numbers they're doing at that location, but I imagine it'll only improve as the area continues to change. And to echo what many of you already have said, I hope the brand sticks around.

thanks notwithit for the reply, and sounds like good advice to wash before taking to get altered

 

thanks!

If my $3000 bedroom renovation didn't turn into a $9,000 one I'd be all over this.
